Some features, such as private messaging, commenting on pictures, profile comments etc. now need a post count of 5 in order to use them rather than the various (higher) numbers set previously.

The forums that needed post counts to participate in have all been streamlined to be available within 40 posts. Some of them need as little as 5 posts to be seen, but by the time you reach 40 posts you'll be able to use all the website features. Roughly speaking, 40 posts means complete access to the following:


  • Altered states (drugs): 40 posts to see or participate
  • Flyology (The hot seat forum): 40 posts to start a thread, 5 to see them.
  • Hippy 101 (get it off your chest): 40 posts to start a rant.
  • Gathering (meet up) forums: 40 posts to start a gathering.
  • Selling an item in the bizarre bazaar: 40 posts ( you don't need anything to see them)
  • Creating and editing blog entries

If you are content to simply read, you can sidestep the counting system by

  • It leaves a "paper trail" back to the user's paypal account - so spammers and stalkers can be traced and reported!
  • It provides access for non-regular posters who genuinely want to be a part of this community.
  • Content of these forums will still remain unseen to non-members, and moderation is always active and confidential.
  • We reserve the right to remove this feature should it prove ineffective.

Once a donation is confirmed (this has to be done manually), they user will get moved seamlessly into the "trusted" category.

Of course, and as always, people who can't afford to donate just need to make up their post count the regular way! So nobody need be excluded.

- The rules of membership still apply, donating does not make anyone immune to the rules.
- Any post count flooding will result in bans or post count subtractions (yes we can do this).
- Posting in the wrong forum to get past the requirements will get the thread deleted.

This gives us another way to raise revenue ... out of 12000+ members, only about 10% of those have actually posted more than 40 times. So, it also seems like a good way to get more people involved.

Of course, we'd still like people to carry on donating to the upkeep of the forum - regular donations have kept us going for a long time now and without them we'd be up shit creek!


I'm closing this thread, but if anyone feels the need to discuss this issue then please do so in the support forum. I'm currently working hard to get this forum buzzing again ... so more new ideas will be coming soon
