Yeah, It isn't an easy decision to make. One always runs the risk of infuriating members. Especially if on one day they are sitting at "Post Like a 3800" and the next day they have been demoted to "Guru". Take baby steps (for example, 500 bumped up to 525 instead of 500 bumped up to 750), and make sure you announce it. That way people know what is going on.

Sol, Excuse my ignorance, but what forum do you run? I'd like to check it out.

Well, I try to keep it quiet, cause it'* mainly for my bitchy friends to look at. It'* PHPBB just like this one. The plan was to have everyone in my school keep in touch when we all go away to college. It'* gonna pick up this summer. Right now, it'* not very popular.

Cool..I got lots of useless Simpsons info to add to that!!

Forums are sweet!

Is it restricted for your friends and peers only? Maybe I'll just lurk around and keep quiet

Basically the rule is, if I know you, or one of my friends knows you, then you can get in. When you sign up, I have to approve it in my e-mail. I've gotten some users in the past that have caused ****, so now I have to approve everything.
