I think I know why the VIP board was made since, you know, I made it.

We do a lot of things to give incentive to people for upgrading to VIP/Gold, and a board on the forum isn't really one of them. No one would pay for access to it, so that's really not a selling point.

Generally you can almost talk about everything on this board unless it has rules
I can't even.

Every board on the forum is subject to the forum rules, except spam (which I'm not getting into this argument, if you know me then you know I think spam is a stupid board). This includes posts, like the ones that were posted to bring all this attention to the board recently, were against the rules, as they would be on any other board. It has no bearing that it was posted in the VIP board.

thats a good point about it not really being an incentive for people

nobody is going to look at the benefits list, see a VIP+ forum section and go "OMG YES I WANT THIS SO MUCH MMMM I CUM NOW AND DONATE 4 THIS"

Indeed, it was just a fun little thing to have for VIP+s to discuss things they for some reason want to only discuss with VIP+s, and for VIP+ release information (betas and what not).
It literally did no harm having it, so Idk why it was removed.

The only thing that did harm was Waffle (Mistakenly) saying that VIP board had no rules... So if we just bring the board back, and take back those words by clearly saying it DOES have rules, then everyone will be happy. :)

Rofl confirmed that the VIP was not subject to the forum rules and was similar to spam and that the posts in the VIP board did not break any rules.

@Ricky (FUCKING QUOTES SERIOUSLY FIX EM :'( )
Could be that waffle said that on TS. But it was a mistake that he said that.
That's the whole point of this suggestion thread I guess. To change his mind on how he sees the VIP board and to bring it back.

He said it on TS and it was very intentional. VIP board doesn't raise post count for that exact purpose. And I don't know what you keep saying about quotes. They work fine for me.
