We cant even get along to fix this place. Lance, honestly, dont split off topic posts in here. Delete them. Delete personal attacks as well. I agree with Impala's organization, and the proposed ideas by Hartmann and cmac.

suggestions:
1) if new mods are added, no controversial ones. We need mods who are consistent on their attitude towards everyone. Examples are Stephan (hartmann), cmac, KC, Jonathan, Spectatrix, and others.
2) Split off-topic and anything goes. All personal flame wars can be taken to anything goes. Split Relationships and adult related. Adult related is where porn pics and other NSFW material is located (as well as anything goes)
3) Enforce the rules. No flaming, no crude language, no NSFW except in specific forums.
4) New user homepage
5) Bring back Rate-a-raider
6) Bring on another co-admin to facilitate things that mods cannot do when Lance is not around.
7) Advertise on facebook and myspace.
8) Bring thought provoking articles to NPR, with a specific headline format. no OMG THIS IS SO DUMB READ THIS. It needs to be like a news headline.
9) appropriately quote articles and link the articles so as to avoid copyright issues.

i am sure that by now everyone has me on ignore anyway, but for my own entertainment let me re-emphasize the idea that only new content will bring any substantial amount of new people.

and we can add "new" content now, such as a photoshop/user video thread where people can showcase their skills or get help from others etc. i do not know if we want to try irc again or not.

i mean, how hard would it be to ignore our differences and disagreements and work together?


there used to be a lot of cliques on this board. now it seems like none of us are even friends with each other.



i say we get our shit together or just break up.
it's not you, it's me.


stay together for the kids.

Perhaps we should set up some kind of content management system like mambo.

Also, maybe we could take donations to set up the IBP blogging system?

Maybe we should also look into getting set up as a student organization so that we can make techannounce messages.

This may be somewhat silly, I really think when referring to people people should really use their login name. Since I don't go to Tech, I don't really know who some people are talking about when they use the people's real names. This makes participating difficult.

Another suggestion maybe to monitor new topics. I'm not sure how practical this is, but this will eliminate a lot of the topics where there is only a link in the topic.

We looked into turning RaR and Techsans into a student organization but there were a lot of requirements, including a board, a school sponsor, etc. It wasn't really feasible.

this is a good idea, not just for people who don't go to tech but also new people to the board who don't know everyone's names. i think the ability to change your username should be removed too, as that really confuses people.

It's good practice to use their display name, but I don't think there should be an explicit rule about it.

The ability to change your username is fine, given that you can go to a person's profile and view their user name history.

Yep. smile.gif

Granted, it can still be confusing initially, but it's not like it's impossible to figure out who's who.
