1. Is their "site locking" that I could put on the main page to make sure those logging in are over 18 for instance? I imagine you can lock certain groups from guests but I want to lock the whole site with a enter and exit option.
2. My site will rely heavily on ad sponsorship, is there a summary of where ads can be placed? Is there a ranking of which ads are the most valuable?
3. I noticed there is a trophy system, how does it work? I've seen previous sites in my niche constantly shilled to death with fake reviews and then trolled to death with those just looking to cause trouble. Can XF help me automatically police bad comments without moderator intervention
4. What does resource manger do exactly, can I get an example, looks like you can use it to 'sell' digital content? It says it helps manage files that are uploaded? By who the users? Could they not upload videos and images in the forum posts?
5. With the trial can I get access to try any of the add ons? (Just the free ones of course) I'm looking for a nice gallery addon to allow users or the mods to create albums with URL links. Also want to test it out so I can see what my site will look like before taking the plunge.
6. What about "content locking" is there an add on that would allow me to say something like click here to receive this free ebook which would then ask them to register or fill out a survey or something like that before being able to download it.
7. Are there a list of server requirements in the case of getting a dedicated server or a VPS versus the number of users? Memory, processor, bandwidth requirements just general rule of thumb so I can plan my hosting properly.
Thanks in advance for the answers!
