Well. I guess that's that then.
If it were me I'd offer the free hosting and make it solely contingent on whether you're actually using it. If you go idle and don';t log on for 2 months straight, then I'd boot you, no questions asked. But it's him, not me, so it doesn't much matter
That said, I think that having even just that probably discourages some people. It's more steps to go through than just emailing Zeno "huh huh I can has hosting plz? kthxbai". :-)
I hear ya' Samson. Even as a means to attract new members to MudBytes I'd question it's real value, but, as you say, it's his offer and it does increase the total post count on MudBytes as well as the total member count one way or another, even if most of those additional posts (members?) are entirely useless additions. As for booting them for being idle 2 months, it sounds good to me, but in practice I've only hosted folks who were either friends or referrals from friends so far so I tend to be really lenient about it. *shrug*
