Offshoreonly Forum

I've recently come accross an interesting forum on the www.offshoreonly.com website. I don't mean the content, as it would hardly be of interest to all you hardcore ribsters, but the sheer size of it.

One of the moderators has made in excess of 63,000 posts in just a couple of years, surely he must be employed fulltime.

What appealed to me was the fact that although you can join for free, you are only entitled to post and view posts, if you want to place an ad, or view an attatchment, you have to subscribe.

Now what an excellent idea, couldn't the same thing be applied to this forum. I'm sure the majority of members wouldn't complain about a token payment, to be able to use an excellent forum. This in turn would give JK the neccessary funds to improve or just maintain the site.

Yes I think that Ribnet is a Bargain and would be willing to pay a bit.
