I've created a new Private Forum for regular contributors.
Click here to see if you have enough account age and post count to gain access. If you have access you'll be able to see this forum listed on the main forum page, otherwise you won't.
Our traffic has been increasing but the number of lurkers has also increased and the number of non-members coming here and browsing threads has increased. Don't get me wrong - I think that's great, but sometimes we may have something we want to share with a few friends and not the whole world.
I do also sometimes come across a nice site / good opportunity that I can't share publicly. As several of you know I've often sent PMs if I thought it would be right for you. I will now post these in the Private Forums.
I'm hoping others will join me in sharing tips, opportunities etc., within this small group.
These private forums are not indexed by search engines, they are not searchable via the site search and you can be free to disclose information you may not be comfortable sharing in the open forum.
I'm going to be a bit more relaxed in the private forums about Forum Rules 3 (fluff) and 5 (profanity, within reason).
You can't access these forums if
1. You're a non member
2. You're a new member or you don't have enough post count.
3. You're a banned member
4. You fall in other categories such as dormant member (see FAQ on how to regularise a dormant account)
What do you think of this?
