It had that option, yes. What I did was pm every new member, welcoming them and letting them know that they had a week. It worked half the time and sometimes the new member would never post, at all. I knew whether or not they were robots or spammers usually because of the name they would choose. I also checked their IP and email address. Regular looking email address's like JohnR@yahoo etc were just normal folks, maybe they would post, maybe they wouldn't. Robots always hade names like, yulquiplet < that was one of them. Either way, my member list grew so I liked that

Sorry for the filibuster

The main issue with $$$$ is that we have 12 years of historical posting that we ARE NOT going to lose... so the only real option is to upgrade to the newest VBulletin software...

VBulliten is one of the high end message board hosts. If it came down to an upgrade you could put up a donation button. I'd be happy to chip in.

Actually, a donation button is a brilliant idea. Besides helping host forum costs, it might motivate a Bagger to stay active longer.

We've soooooo many really great folks come...and go. I know that's life, but it's nice when they hang around longer.

I've noticed exactly that when reading back through the pages of various threads with countless pages of great posts by formerly active members.
