Is there really anything that big board owners need to discus in private that small forum owners shouldn't see?
What you have to all remember is that all our big boards started out small and we learned from people who had large communities. Just think what it would be like if the pioneers didn't share their knowledge.

I have no problems with that, but I do have problems with guest being able to read our posts in this section. IMHO this section and the rest, should olny be accessible to licensed users.

Cheers Bama.

Personally, I don't mind either way, as long as the people who need to access the discussions can --> so if it did go private, a clear way to get access.

well my forums is just over a year old now, and it now has about 50 000 members (pruned a whole heap recently) and we have over 300 000 posts. we get about 1000-2000 posts a day so in about 100-200 days i should be officially a big board, however im already running into lots of problems because having a database of about 2 gigs, and having over 2000 members visit your site everyday and heaps of guests does make running the site a big job.

I think as long as licensed members can only view this it should be fine. of course being accepted into a private area does make you feel special, it wouldn't be fair to the other members.

Seems a bit silly to make this private. Licensed only by all means, but private? I see no reason.

And for the record:

TAZ = it is a forum for community administrators to discuss administration and anything else to do with foruming in general. It is by far the biggest and best resource on the net for community administrators.

I'll throw in my two cents, as I frequent this forum. No, it should not be limited to those with "big boards" of 500,000+ posts. My forum has about 100,000 posts and I already use this forum as a resource. I do agree however that it should only be shown to license owners.
