Yes!!! Viewing profiles should be a basic feature!!!

The majority of folks use PayPal to subscribe or send a personal check. I'm not going to go into details, but in the past certain members had been harrassed either by someone PMing them, or emailing them (via their Profile), as well as doing frequent searches on all of their posts, and targetting/stalking them on the forum.


I voted Search because it's a basic internet function that people are used to anyway.

Another reason why giving everyone the ability to send PMs might make sense is that it would make it a bit easier for the mods to contact the members immediately, wouldn't it?

This poll is just to give me an idea... it's not a 'vote' to actually decide the outcome.

Please choose 1 feature which you think should be made un-Premium.

If you care to also reply and explain why you chose what you did, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Joel
What are you thinking of at this point?

I agree.

I vote for the PM function. It would be great that everyone on the board could interact that way. It also means people wouldn't have to give out their email addresses on the forum so someone could contact them.

I look at what would improve this place for all members. SEARCH. Less dup threads, and it's not a real "benefit" like PM or viewing profiles.

I think the search feature - as someone pointed out it would benefit all as it would hopefully reduce the number of duplicated threads.

I don't know that adding search would limit too many duplicate threads. Certainly a lot, but I get the feeling that the real annoying ones (like the Bush SBS one) would happen regardless.

I'd vote PM'ing or profiles. The main point of this site is interaction and communication between fans afterall.
