I guess you are not understanding what I mean.
I understand that the payment system has nothing to do with placing and ad. That is not what I am trying to accomplish.
What I mean is that the MAX AD SETTING the way it currently is VERY restrictive. To me it would make more sense if it allowed a certain number of ads at any given moment, not the maximum number of ads in a persons lifetime.
In the current configuration those that reach their max ads stop using the classifieds completely. This does not do the sellers or the buyers any good.
Here is my set up.
I have a usergroup called XL Forum Team. This usergroup pays $30.00 a year for extra privilages and access to the entire website. One of these extra privilages is that they can create an unlimited amount of ads and do not pay a fee for bold, italics or highlighting. I have about 300 of these members right now and growing.
The other usergroup is Registered Users. I am sure you are familiar with this default vBulletin usergroup.
For the normal registered users I would like to allow them to run only 2 ads at a time. Once the one of the ads closes by either expiring or being sold the system should allow them to create a new ad.
The MAX ADS SETTING as you have stated and I found out quickly does not do this. If I set this to 2 then that is all the ads a certain usergroup will ever get, period, end of story. If I set it to 10 the same thing. All they get is 10 ads. I believe that all this is goning to do is encourage people who are not XL Forum Team members to register mulitple usernames just to get around the MAX AD SETTING.
It would also be nice to have a function that would allow a user that has reached their MAX ADS to be able to purchase ads beyond the MAX Setting.
