Some Questions for Current IPB Customers

Hi all,

I'm planning to launch a new adult content board in the near future. I'm not sure what plugins, etc. I should get when I purchase the IPB software, so I hope to get feedback from current IPB customers before talking to a sales rep. Here's the criteria for the board:

  • I expect to have approx 10,000 users to start on an adult content board, I hope to expand quickly via aggressive marketing (no spamming, just Google Adsense and banner exchanges :) ). Eventual membership up to 300,000-500,000 not unrealistic, from what I've seen on other adult content boards.
  • Due to the adult nature of the board, it will need to be easy for me and the mods to spot and temp/perma-ban ToS violators (people posting CP or copyrighted images/videos).
  • Besides the forums, I want to provide members their own homepages and blogs.
  • Free membership will allow viewing and up/down-loading of images.
  • Paid subscription will allow viewing and up/down-loading of videos.

As you've probably guessed, I've never administered an online forum. Unfortunately, the guy who does know this end of the project bailed out on me yesterday. However, I do have good software skills so I'm going to teach myself how to do this. Any and all advice and comments will be very much appreciated.

It seems like IPB with the IP. Blog plugin would be best for you.
If you plan on using the gallery plugin rather than having members post images/videos in the forums (which is what the gallery feature is for) then you might be interested in the Community Suite license which includes Board, Blog and Gallery for $250 and $25 optional renewal every 6 months (a saving of $15 and $50 every year)

I'm sure it will be, but IPB only allows legal content. See license agreement.
