Geekzone subscribers private forums

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 10-Aug-2008 15:34

A few days ago over on Twitter there was a discussion about "free" services and one of the topics was about selling features that are valuable to users.

So here is something we don't promote much but is available: Geekzone Subscriptions. In summary Geekzone subscribers have the ability to upload images (handy for forums and blogs), the option to browse Geekzone without advertising and the ability to create and manage their own "by invitation only" private forums on Geekzone.

To make things a bit more interesting we have just changed the private forum limit from one to 15. That's it: each Geekzone Subscriber can create and manage up to 15 private forums, each with its own access list, only visible to those allowed to access the private discussions.

We also have our own e-mail domain available to our users, free of charge. Geekzonemail gives users a Windows Live ID that can be used wherever Windows Live ID are accepted - including Windows Live access, Windows Live Messenger (MSN) and more. It provides Windows Mobile users with push e-mail and you can access your email with Microsoft Outlook Connector or Windows Live Mail Desktop.
