Alright i'm just throwing this out there, but i was thinking it might be cool to basically to make it so a post in any of the forum sections could be made vip or regulars only (and it would also show up in the separate vip/regulars forum for those that like to sort by that). I dunno if this is even possible, but it does rather appeal to my desire for organization. Also that it was a regulars/vip only thread would have to be made clear somehow.

Anyways i'm just curious what others think about this idea. I really don't know if the forum software could even do something like this (and even if it can it might be a pain to set up/overly complicated).

I don't like it...It would put regulars in another class from VIP, rather than a step below VIP...

We already have dedicated forums for doing this.

i think he means if you can make a post in any thread only regulars/VIP can see that post instead of having to make a thread in a regulars/VIP section

Oh I know what he means. I'm just saying. I don't really see what the advantage would be, or the need for it. That's all.

No, I don't think that would work well. It would be confusing if someone could only read PART of a thread. In fact, I think it would be kinda mean, like dangling half a thread that's missing important (and possibly quoted) information.

Regulars and VIP forums are fine, because the ..."normies" don't know what they can't see, and thus don't form a revolt.

EDIT: Just reread and realized this poll said THREAD and not POST :p... Oh well, my answer still stands as it would be redundant and the special forums barely get used as it is...

It'll create a lot of chaos. + It's too easy to make a mistake then and quote something in an other thread.

Yea, growing on Martins prospective- Given

If I said something in a Regular thread and wanted it to only show for VIP's, and lets say Moo wanted to quote me but his post was for the regulars to see as well, it would make it extremely confusing for those reading it.

'Like....where the f did that quote just come from?'

All in all, I am not in favor of it.

[VIPOnly] I don't think it would be a good idea, simply because posts would be missing from threads, and people might quote the VIP only posts in the non-VIP threads making their VIPness disappear. [/VIPOnly]

[RegularOnly] Plus it would be work for Moo, and I don't really see a dire need for this feature, if it even exists! [/RegularOnly]

I agree, we have a location for this, if we wish to comment we can. Though making more work is only ground to cause more problems and more Moderation. The additional separation between the VIP and Regular is also not needed. This will only point out in a more obvious manner what it is that separates the two levels. It takes VIP from having a privilege to keeping secrets from the rest of the members.

Hmm... making individual posts in a thread private could cause problems. For example, someone might withhold vital information to a question, making the whole thread pointless.

I just don't think its something that will work out too well. It sounds like a system that could have a lot of problems (bug wise), plus, in my opinion, it infringes freedom of information rights.

If you want to make a thread private, use the forums that are put in place for that purpose.

Also, I don't see any reason why people would want to use this feature. If you don't want to make information available to everyone in a forum that is accessible by everyone, don't post it. Or use the private messaging system, or an instant messaging system.

For posts, it wouldn't work - threads would get too confusing.

For threads... it might work, but:
(1) it would be a LOT of work to implement
(2) we already have a regulars/VIP forum... so the work seems un-necessary
(3) a lot of people would start tagging their threads as regulars+ if we did this, and this wouldn't make us seem welcoming to guests/newbies

I like this idea, but in hindsight its a lot of work, and more then likely won't be used.
