 I don't know why MMT need a credibility rating since he is forum's admin.


 
As an IT specialist, I can tell you that it's impossible unless he or someone else who has your IP address .......
  Cypher, sometimes the simplest approach can get you information:
 As an admin, you can have access to passwords. MOST people use the same forum password as their personal email, so IF he wants, he could do that do get into your private email. Since MMT is an IT guy, he knows that's a crime an will not do it, BUT It's possible*.

 * When I say POSSIBLE, It doesn't meant he MIGHT do it. It's POSSIBLE for me to jump from my balcony since I can reach it, but don't mean I will do it.

MMT don't have to justify himself if the board become paid, or where the money go.

Most of the people don't realise what it take to run a board : money for the hosting, and a lot of TIME everyday.

Honestly, who here after his complete LL will want to spend 3 hours a day moderating a forum about LL ?  Personally, I could start this kind of forum too, but hell i don't want to spend my time deleting comments from people who don't even read the FAQ and asking strange questions. I will just want to forget about all this LL.

$5 lifetime membership is ok, and if you can't spend $5 for quality information, then forget about LL.

Believe it or not, but MMT doesn't know our passwords and neither do admins on (mostly) any other forum you register on. The passwords are encrypted in the database using a hash, meaning if your password is 'makemetaller' it would show up in the database as something like 'dbfff42a90727d02153511a33480572b' not as 'makemetaller' and there's no way of decrypting it.

Just to be clear, I cannot see people's passwords, and would have no interest in doing so anyway Smiley

Dude, do you ever read things properly? It says very clearly in the post:

The bulk of the money would go to charity to help people like Nastya, and some would fund the continued expansion of the features of the board.

You'd have a lot more credibility yourself if you read things properly Wink

MMT,

Charity is an optional thing, only people that can afford it and wanting to give it would do it BUT when you make people pay and get money out of them against their will if they want to be able to access the forum. thats no longer a charity with a full meaning.
why people should pay? to read some people's diaries that they have SHARED with the forum for free and in their own, you have no right to restrict that or use people's infos and experiences to make others pay. those who now you think should pay they come here with a hope that someday they will be able to share their own experiences here with others again FOR FREE, you can open a thread or something and ask people to donate then whoever wanna danote he would, and who doesnt want to he's not going to give a penny. aking this board chrgeable isnt working period.

I voted for the money grabbing scumbag!! I dont think MMT is that at all but it just made me chuckle!!

I am against the idea of making it a subscription site - but i dont mind the idea of making a one off charitable donation.

The site could still be accessed by all, as it is now, but making the donation "unlocks" your right/ ability to post.

That should stop the spammers, but still gives people the chance to research and gain information.

No one should have to pay to educate themselves!  Smiley

It's nice to see that some of our members still have a sense of humour Smiley

Having to unlock the posting ability is definitely a possible option - it would force people to read the FAQs and diaries more carefully, and not hit the 'Post' button within 30 seconds of joining Wink

paying is not a bad idea, but personally, if I had to pay (even a dollar), I might not have register to this website, then I wouldnt be quite as interested in doing LL and I migh tnot be doing LL in a couple of months. But I will certainly donate some money because this website has been nothing but helpful to me.

I 'am all for a free access LL forum site such as it is currently. Although, charging a subscription might weed out the lurkers, procrastinators and knobheads simply trolling LL sites just to stir up shi*. Undecided

Keep it real and keep it free MMT.

MMT, if we pay you by paypal, our names are shown where the payment is received, so we do lose the anonymity. I am against any sort of charging because it will discourage new users from joining the site. If I paid $1 to join every site I went to in hopes that it was something great with tons of useful information, I can't tell you how many times I'd have to file for bankruptcy already.

So keep it free and open.

I agree. Keep it free or many won't come on the site!

Why not do what is the perhaps "sensible" option for these circumstances.  This is what many sites do, they have "premium" sections and "free to view" sections! This at least means you will not be turning away (discriminating against) people that have limited funds (which is generally many people in the world) from gaining at least some forum privileges while you can still recoup money for your costs by charging for "premium" content!

MMT mate, from my point of view you can implement a VIP section with photos, videos and diaries stuff for paid members and keep the Public info section free.
I will support this forum either way since it has given me so much in this life !

I would support a payment if I could do it anonymously.  I would not recommend it, but would support it if necessary.

I think that the forum have to be free but I think that MMT have to recieve a commision for advertising LL Centers, for example if people save 2000 in beijing they would have to donate a part of the save althought if is 100 or 200.

Thanks, but don't worry - I don't need the money Smiley

I'm thinking more about privacy, security and stopping crazy people like Ant and Miknos coming here and trying to destroy our community Wink

Good point.
If someone were to tell the Dr. that they are a member of MMT then the doctor should send part of that discount to MMT, say 10%.
Unfortunately, with an open forum, the nuts will get in and MMT Admin will have to try and stay a step ahead of them.
