....for members with over a certain number of years membership? At the moment we already have the Lobby for supporting members as a place where more "controversial" discussions can be held and it seems to work fairly well for those topics which would never work in OT. Would it work to have a sub-forum which only users with a joindate which was greater than say, 1 or 2 years from the current date can view / post in. With the same kind of rules as the Lobby / perhaps even more relaxed. It would work better than one based on post counts which can be run up by post-whores, and sort of "rewards" long standing members in the forum. The purpose could be to allow more "adult" (but not R rated) discussions which are more "openly" moderated. The forum would keep out trolls and spam as it shouldnt appear in general google searches of the web (like the lobby). I guess another possibility is to have an over 18 forum for supporting members with a verified birthdate or something like that. There seems to be at least some demand for such a forum given the way threads seem to be going in OT. However, there is a downside to, because it makes long-standing membership and elitest club and sends a message that long-standing members are, perhaps, valued more than short-term members. Anyway its just a random thought, but I wondered what the general populaces view was about such a sub-forum. Its not quite "suggestion box" ready, because I don't even know in my own mind whether I would want this sort of sub-forum or not. More just the beginnings of an idea.
