Official Request/Petition to Get a "Members Only" Section

Can we get a little area going here that you can't see unless you're a member? We promise we'll be good.

i pinky swear.
the only problem with it is that some people may abuse it and only post there, leaving the rest of the board empty making it so guests cant read our posts. thats what made me register. also, like you said, people could just regester, steal all of our cool sketches, change them, and put them on blue collar tv.
another thing is this; where would the posts be displayed? all of the posts are put into either the left side bar, or the center right thing. if they were for members only, they'd have to go some where else, and that would make it harder for us to find them. we could ask mr. admin to re-do the site making a place for them, but thats un-reasonable, not to mention that the site could be closed for a while.
but regardless of all of that, i think its a great idea.

I've been on forums where they've done this sort of thing. One I used to post at A LOT was GuitarGeek.com. We wanted a special forum where we could, for example, alert the other members of a good find on eBay without blabbing it to the world. In the top section, "GUITARGEEK MAINFRAME", non-members only see two subsections: "News & Updates" and "Comments & Suggestions". But logged-in members see a THIRD subsection there: "Geek Safe House". So it can be done. I have no idea what goes into it from an administrative standpoint though.

The abuse issue had occurred to me as well. I hope people will use it sparingly and do all their normal posting in the regular forums. If not, we'd never get any new members. And I'm sure there'd be some negative consequences as well.

Shit, I've lost track. I didn't really even start until after high school. Maybe 12 or 13 years. Long enough that I should be MUCH better than I am.

cool. i know we should get back on topic, but first, a question. have you used the line 6 variax? i'm thinking about getting one and would like to hear what you think of it.
that being said, do you know what would be really sweet?
if we had a members only section of the board.
lets start a petition.

I know. That's why I was using my sarcastic tone of voice.

I'm working on the guitar thread now, by the way.
