Post NEW FORUM IDEA/S
1.Fast Threads

Yeah, I think Data should make a new category in the forums called 'Fast/Quick Threads' or some thing like that. And to make sure that the forum doesn't overload with crap, purge 'not viewed in past month' topics every 3 weeks or so.

I believe the fast thread category should include:
1. Really quick questions that require a quick or simple question
2. 'Post your' topics, for example 'post your favorite Avatar/Game/Food' or 'Post your Things to do with 5 dollars'
3. Photoshop/Paint topics, for example 'Photoshop this!' or 'Post your favorite picture edit'

(General idea inspired by Forum.facepunchstudios.com 'Home of Garry's Mod -aka Best mod evar')

2.Smartness System
A simple smartness system so that we won't have to deal with 'ZOMG I AM TEH SECHY BEST TEH Z0MG 1337M4N3!!!11'
(That would be nice, but not top priority)

Problem with the smartness system is people marking any contreversial post as stupid. The first is an ok idea, though. I just think it should be called Quick Threads, instead of Fast Threads.

ummm... no. The fast thing can be fixed in other ways and isn't really needed.

Fast Threads FTW!!!11one
The smartness system is crap. I'm still learning english and I lost over 500 points IN A SINGLE POST. Instead of it, maybe a POSITIVE karma system. You know, you like a post and give karma to the author. Only positive karma, so n00bies can't enter, fudge 4 people's karma, and leave forever. Maybe only people with +70-100 posts can add karma. Karma doesn't have any effects on the forum.

Karma and Fast Threads sounds good and would be a nice implemention.

Yeah, I think fast threads would be good. I'm not so sure about the smartness system, though.

Karma is a good idea, actually, smartness system would suck.

Also, Data should make a rule about Descriptive Topics, because I am getting tired of 'Help Yo?' or 'I need helps with my mod' or 'Help needed' thread topics... The topics have to be specific so that people won't have to actually look at the topic just to find out that, they either can not help, or it's a simply retarded question.

Agree?

Make a "Help Forum?"

People will actually use it, most likely.

I agree with you, couchcaboose :smile:

These pointless topics can be found by searching up, and people shouldn't always create a new question that has been asked million times. Also, people who have had so low computer experience, shouldn't mod at all.

I asked Wizard James once, who said that he'd pass it on to Data, who never responded. So I don't think we'll have one any time soon.
