In Reply to: PLANS FOR CHANGES TO FORUM SOFTWARE posted by Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S. on September 26, 1998 at 20:43:52:
Charge a fee to post here...good luck!
: Dear Supreme Law Forum Users:
: We are actively searching the marketplace
: for superior software to handle the growing
: needs of the Supreme Law Forum.
: We are entertaining a modest subscription
: fee policy, probably $1 per month, payable
: $12 in advance, in order to defray our
: mounting administrative costs.
: We would implement this fee via a combination
: of on-line credit card transactions, like the
: InterNIC domain registration program, and
: optional mail-in payments, using U.S. Postal
: Money Orders.
: There would also be a password system, much
: like the passwords required by Hotmail and
: other free Internet email services.
: A contract would need to be signed, whereby
: you would agree to abide by the stated policies
: of this forum, and consent to all final decisions
: made by the Forum webmaster, who would have
: final authority to bar any violators, including
: discipline, with help of the violator's ISP
: and/or InterNIC domain managers.
: On the technical side, we are seeking software
: which is more robust, to avoid the duplicate
: and triplicate postings which have been a
: problem in the past.
: We would also like a more succinct summary
: page, to avoid the long download times for
: the main topic index.
: We also are hoping, with some ambition, to integrate
: all existing messages into the new message database,
: whatever that might be. Time and resources will
: be the ultimate factors determining how elegantly
: the existing messages are integrated with whatever
: new software we select.
: With this lengthy introduction, I would invite
: all constructive comments and suggestions here.
: Thank you very much for your consideration.
: And, PLEASE, take insults elsewhere, if that
: is your real reason for loitering here.

: Counselor at Law, Federal Witness,
: and Private Attorney General
