-Bring back the rep system.

But make it to where you can't give people negative reputation. That way people aren't discouraged from posting controversial opinions (and it'll stop people from abusing it), but the really well thought out posts gets some recognition.

-Cut out the off-topic inactive sections

As a general gaming forum, we really shouldn't have that many off-topic subsections. Just cut out the inactive ones.

-Thread Starter Kudos system

OPs of very active threads get additional positive reputation. This will help members try to make their threads more interesting. I'm tired of seeing short lived threads. So I think this will help motivate people. You can scale it too. If your thread hits 5 pages, you get +5 reputation. Your thread hits 10 pages, you get +10 reputation, etc.

Totally back these ideas.
I liked the rep system from the start but yeah it got abused, and by having a lack of negative will surely improve things.


And admins you know you can do it... remember back in the day I gave you about 8 ideas and you put about 5 in place soon after. http://www.g7gaming.net/t1047-to-the-admins

Get these things sorted out and I think next in line we can begin thinking about how to expand this place... get more new members
and think about what we have to offer what other forum don't... how we can get these people to stay.

Movie section is active for the most part so don't worry.

The Art and Music section may as well be part of the general off-topic subforum though.

Exactly. It's inactive and unnecessary.

So is that the "points"?

Shouldn't an admin discuss this with the Staff first before changing anything?

Not really. I think most people agree with the changes. I still have reserves about the rep system though.

-Edit, I'm also combining the PSP section with the PSvita section.

If we want to attract new members we are going to need to have topics on some of the latest bits of news on the console sections.

So should we strive to make new threads on every modern gaming system section everyday?

Mecha does a pretty good job with that. But yes, more would be beneficial.

Alright, Alan. I backed you up on all this but I have to criticize you right now.

Noticing the lack of new gaming discussion threads, I made a new one for people to discuss games that they expected to flop but turned out really good.

It began with a few relevant posts but then you go in, ignore the thread, go off topic and start bashing my opinion and calling me a hipster.

It's clear you don't want this forum to succeed as much as you would let people believe.
Grow up please.
