Subscription / Paypal addon?

edited February 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help

Anyone ever thinking of a forum subscriber addon?

Me and some others who got together by playing online games used to post at a phpBB forum - it was pretty much an exclusive one. That said, the previous owner got married and forgot all about it :( (no joke).

I was wondering if anyone thought of say a subscriber addon. The reason I bring this up is because I was thinking of bringing it back, but couldn't really afford to pay for hosting indefinitely so it would be cool if there was a way to track people who donated like say a $1 through paypal to help keep it running.

When the forum needed money, toggle it to bring attention, and when the funds are fine, turn it off.

What do you think?

    that sounds like a great idea to me, Jeff. I would love such an extension.

    There's the Notify extension. Maybe it could be used to build the Subscriber addon you're thinking about.

    Okay, scrapped this plan and have gone with the SMF (Simple Machines Forum) system instead, which has a subscription module in beta.
