The Mods should seriously consider raising the Jr. VIP requirements. Yes, I do realize that with the lower requirements, more people are able to become Jr. VIP members which increases the revenue of the forum. I also realize that this is not the sole purpose of the forum, but the purpose is more to create a safe place for higher level information to be shared. BHW should increase the requirement for the account age and reputation. 100 posts is enough to ensure the member is active, but it also depends on how long someone has actually been a member for. If they have been a member for two months and have 350 posts, I can either assume they are ridiculously active or just try to rack up their post count. If a person has been a member for longer, say 6 months, and has 125 posts, this indicates they read the forum and post when they feel they have something important to say (I understand this is not in all cases). Which leads me to my first point. Their should be a higher requirement for reputation. If the purpose of the Jr. VIP area is to make sure there is a safe place for information that shouldn't be shared with the general public, then the people in it should probably be smart, reliable, and helpful to the forum. If we let in people who have been a member for two months and have 100 posts, how is this ensuring that we keep great information away from newbies? This makes BHW very vulnerable to someone who joins, racks up their post count, then rips the Jr. VIP members area and shares or sells the content. My second point, is increase the requirement for account age. I believe it's at 60 days right now, which isn't terrible. It just leaves room for n00bs to make their way into the Jr. VIP section. A raise to three months or even six would be ideal for ensuring a member to be a steadfast BHW member. With that all said and done, it's late and I'm not sure how this all came out. I just wanted to encourage BHW to look into this issue a bit more. Please note their are outliers to my post. There are always exceptions. In everything you do. I'm half asleep at this point and maybe even a little drunk.
