    I don't participate as much as I want, but I do like it very much. Nice to have a forum without people who can't have a civil dissection.

    They seem to be working just fine so far. But then again, this was a group that was hand picked for being able to be civil and respectful. I have a feeling once we open this place up, it may need some fairly heavy moderation. Since being a donor doesn't mean a person is capable of maintaining this level of respect and openness.

    Any particular things you like or dislike?
    So far, its been close to perfect.

    Would slightly more organization with some sub-forums for specific types of topics help or better at the start to just leave it open as it is?
    I'd leave things as is for now. If after we open this place up and we get a lot of posters, then we can add sub-forums as needed.

    Now to clear up a few things. Again, we want to thank you all for being a part of this test. As you may've noticed in the "Welcome" page posting in The Loft is going to be a perk for donators, with anyone that has an active donation in the system being able to post. We are however planning on making it so that you original beta testers will always have posting access to The Loft in thanks of your help in getting it up and running.
    That's awesome! Thank you very much.

    The beta test phase will go on for about another week or so. After that point we'll either do a full launch or a rolling one where we start with platinum, then gold, then silver members. Unsure which will be occuring yet
    .

    I'd probably favor a rolling launch. Let people get accilmated to this place in smaller groups.

    This is my place of Zen, lol. I am not looking forward to the opening. Not in a bad way mind you, it will however be, more active.

    I'm really enjoying this place, and it has been my favorite part of the forum since it's been open. I think the rules, are good the way they are right now, they may need to be tweaked once this place becomes open to everyone else, but I think you've got a good foundation.
    Also I do think that sub-forms should probably be added once it becomes open to everyone else. Just to help organize things.

    Wow, thank you

    I'm eager to see what you all think.

    If anyone has any other questions feel free to throw them out, and looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thank you all for making this a great success thus far.
    I had a long response for the Tea Party thread one night, and alas, I discovered that the network went down. I was busy with other things and lost the post that I had intended to copy (multitasking is a bad idea with copy/paste!).

    So, maybe I'll get back to it and put it up there again soon.
