I have seen a few forums doing this now and I know at least 75% of their content and activity is coming from postloop, It really isn't any of my business I know, but I like to keep my ear to the ground and watch how things work out for people. I am interested to know how this would actually work out in the long run, as the community would just be based on cash and once that is gone so is the community. The only real benefit I can see to this is if you were building the forum up to sell it in the future, I recently saw someone do this and make a very healthy profit from it. Getting to the questions I wanted to ask, Have you used postloop to start your community off? How did it work out for you in the long run? Did you eventually remove your forum from the program and what effect did it have on the activity of the community? (truthfully) I know some people can get addicted to having a very active forum and stray from the fact that they don't have a community, just postloopers - Then they continue to spend all of their money in the program even though they may have said to themselves they would remove their forum at x posts or whatever.
