#3 Delete older sections that arent used often , it makes this site look tired and behind the times
#4 Have a section devoted solely to higher end little known names, it would open up a world of new brands to people who know nothing about them
#5 Give members a much longer leash. No locking or removing threads unless they absolutley have to be ie Threats of extreme violance and rascism ect. And those that get just lould move them to the "enter at your own risk" section
#6 Possibility of bringing back the old mall?
#7 Merge some of the more mainstream brands into a single section ie TR and R&R
Please be constructive in your replies
I like this place and a great many of its members. We need both the bleeding hearts and the loud mouth posters to keep this place running on an even keel.
It would be dull as all hell without witty retorts and interesting people, and I think we may have been too quick to ban in the past...
I left because this forum went from a place were we could : bs about fashion, get advice on personal issues, network/socialize with interesting people to what it is now. I came back because theirs a few things in the mall I would like to buy and I was looking for some coupon codes, saw this was going on and whats been going on the last two weeks or so and decided to chime in and see if the forum had changed enough for me to WANT to come back.
as far as clothing sections go, we need 3:
- designer denim
- general fashion
- balla status only
- lifestyle + culture (music, film, design, art, etc.)
- trash (own risk section - politics, religion, general nastiness and trash talk, but NO nudes)
MAYBE dry denim, health + beauty, shoes + handbags, sales + coupons (though this could just be done as a thread as it is at other forums)
lets keep this shit simple and see where it goes
I love the idea of a free for all, enter at your own risk section. I think the people who feel they are being "bullied" are, as a general rule, not the people who contribute to the site as a whole. Of course, the reason the don't post may be because they're afraid of the response...but seriously, the people who are complained about most are also the backbone of this forum- with a few exceptions. I realize there are people like Ryan, Jayme, Spence, Julz who aren't a part of the drama ever. But think about how much conversation there has been on the site since the ACO/JSkidder/whoever the other guy was thread.
Also, I would like to point out that a couple of years ago, NotfrostyJoshypoo was someone who was somewhat disliked by the mods and put on a ban, I think. I remember reading something about it from way back in the day. Now look at him, he's one of (my) favorite members and posts in almost every thread. We have to consider that even though Sevenkid can be kind of *rude* it's not like he's sitting there wishing death on the person he's mocking. I think he brings more laughs than tears...
Point being, let the forum run itself. It's been dead around here for too long and I don't think the reason is because of "mean members." I think it's because we are a big group of people, and without some sort of conflict, there's only so many conversations about fashion/jeans/shoes/WAYWT before we all just get lives and stop posting.
