GostHacked Posted January 21, 2014 Report Share Posted January 21, 2014 Ya, I don't like 'likes' either ... but some posts are awesome and some way of recognizing them would help raise the quality of posts by providing good models. Here's a thought: Some kind of connection to a person's blog or profile to identify the post (leave a link?) and comment there about great posts? Maybe an annual or semiannual 'vote' on top ten posts ? (I don't like single-winner competition. Too arbitrary.) And maybe a few of the worst trollish posts too? Again, as 'models' of what not to do. . We can dispense with the blogs as well. I feel they won't add anything to the site. We need more participation in the threads. Many will resort to simply blogging and not give people the ability to comment on it. Some do not like their views challenged or scrutinized. If Greg wanted to go to an ad-revenue system for the forums, I would appreciate it if he also offered the ability to disable ads by donating $20-25/year to the forum. Or one can simply use an ad blocker. I do. If Greg is looking for donations, great, but I'll do what I can to avoid advertising. Ad blocker with Firefox means NO adverts when watching Youtube. It's really nice. Suggestion: Limit of one "Status Update" per day, to avoid over-posting by individuals. I vote for trashing the status update sidebar. A fluff item that does not help the forum threads at all. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
