That might be an option for whomever is already handling your site because it's built on the Xen Foro platform.
Hypothetically, short of some diabolical nefarious conspiracy, it wouldn't matter what else they were used for, because whatever the case, it would still be advantageous for everyone, whereas without them, nobody can benefit from them at all. So you could certainly include a no nefarious diabolical conspiracy clause in your authorization .OK let's clarify this then about your access. You would not be allowed to independently distribute the content outside of the paywall without permission. You could grant permission for people who are working with you on editing content. We would take care of that. But people who live the program, as it were, lose the access. The question is, with unrestricted copyright authorization, what would you do beyond the forum to require it?
If you go with a wiki based solution you wouldn't need me to be involved. It's a self-organizing type of system. You would just need to post here for volunteers, and once you got 5 or 6 who would agree to contribute steady content, then install the add-on and give them access.My interest at the start would be to keep the transcript within the paywall. But going forward, maybe a few years hence, we'd consider releasing older transcripts. Let's see how it flies. Drop me a private conversation/message and let's see if we can make it happen. If the XenForo solution I pointed to is good for you, let me know.
