    I recently got idea :flame: about creating IM forum in my country since there isn't any.
    I know that I need domain, hosting, forum template, email (+aweber after some time).
    I want to make it as membership site : registering and reading for free, posting and advertising for monthly fee.
    Since I don't have any experience with membership site I got few questions :
    What to I need to make it like membership site ? Some script ?
    How can I get detailed overview about my paying forum users ? How can I allow them certain features right after paying ?
    How can I make different levels of fees ? ( 5/month for posting, 50/month for posting and advertising )
    What else should I know about membership site's ?
    P.S What forum template would you recommend ? I need features like ranking, private messages, profile customizing and so on...
    and also : What plugins should I get ? (wordpress)

    Thanks for every answer :):):)
