Actually I don't think it's covered. modify and/or remove any copyright notices or labels on the Software on each page (unless copyright output removal license is purchased) and in the header of each script source fileThat's from the EULA. I'm not showing anybody how to remove anything from the header of each script source file nor how to remove the copyright notices. I'm only showing them how to remove a reminder visible only to the admins. I certainly don't mind being wrong though and have, erring on the side of caution, removed the instruction.
Interesting. I'll take it down but I don't think it can be reasonably justified that it breaches the EULA. It's a front end display to a limited set of users, thus there is no detrimental impact to IPS of it being removed by individual admins. I wouldn't condone anything that removes the actual copyright.
My advice is to take it back to basics. Look at your site as if you had never seen it before as ask yourself these questions; What's so interesting about the site that you'd want to register?Why would you want to register on your site over, say... Facebook?What need is your site fulfilling that can't be, or isn't already being, fulfilled elsewhere?The main mistake I see, and have made myself many times, is trying to compete in a world where there are already established websites, social groups, forums, clubs, etc., and you'll always face an uphill battle. I've had the most success with smaller niche member bases than I have large ones. I only once had a large forum with c350,000 members, but that was before the days of Facebook. I also catered to a specific audience for which there were no other comparable resources.
@V@POR I've actually highjacked the staff page to act as a roster. It works remarkably well. I edited the language to change "Staff Directory" and "Staff" both the "Roster" and edited the friendly URL from /staff/ to /roster/. Then I created categories for my clan members and added groups to them. http://revolucion.co.uk/roster/ No coding knowledge required.
