    I like that idea. I keep pretty close attention to discussions about ED on places like KF, 8chan, DA and Reddit. The number one complaint people have is "ED is nothing but malicious popups and porn ads". Though i am amazed that all these people have not discovered adblock yet in 2017,...and that i have the site whitelisted so know its nowhere near as bad as they claim

    Yeah I follow it too whenever I can. The biggest complaints are "not funny" and "popups"

    The first one is subjective but the second one is a legitimate complaint if someone's tech-stupid enough to not have adblock, mostly cellphone users

    K.
    Activity is money, from what I understand.

    But my main point is there has to be some sort of progressive "correction" to curtail such over the top faggotry.

    For example, fagtagging is quite limiting. And is often sudden. For example, Eypc, sperges out for months, gets fagtagged for three weeks in a row, makes socks to continue while begging to be unfagtagged. Seems to be ineffective. I am only suggesting perhaps a different avenue be tried.

    As so far as the newguy pile on, that's EDF -- you get jumped in.
    As Uber suggested, perhaps new way of the site to be categorized, an "Adults" sandbox section where it's explained that things, people, political views, religion, sexual function etc., etc., etc. and YOU are going to be openly mocked and you're gonna have to have a thick skin. In many ways, newbies are walking into an ambush.

    Forum gets roughly 4% of total ED traffic.

    When it comes to EDF, activity = pennies

    yeah we made 7 dollars with the popups last month, so they are gone. Fagtagging is retarded and I shoudnt have even made it. I am going to get rid of it when I get home.

    Burn it to the ground and from the ashes create a dating site called OhCatfish! With thousands accounts of very attractive, very lonely singles all ran IRL by Tim and his dusty old guy balls.... That way ppl will have a reason to pretend to care what he says.

    These threads always devolve into bawfests over how X user is treated and the only solution is to try and tell people how to post.

    I'm not trying to tell anyone how to post, I am talking about removing a tool that is constantly misused and super annoying for the user.

    I have not seen it misused for a long long time and the whole point is for it to be annoying

    If someone is literally emailing you over a fagtag then they certainly deserved it

    So here's what I think.

    Idea 1:
    ------------
    Four subforms:

    Hard Gay Chats (everything except news and DA)
    Newsroom
    DeviantArt
    Archives

    Archives will be separated into additional subforms based on year. 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. Threads started in x year go in the archives. Only threads made in 2017 are in Hard Gay. Newsroom and DA exempt from this.

    Frontpage of forum will feature recent threads from both Hardgay and News and a improved shoutbox . Shoutbox has two boxes, one for chat and second for recent activity. Eliminate sidebar.


    Idea 2:
    -----------
    Kill post ratings. Reason because post ratings are common on all forums now and the novelty has long been dried up. Keep the likes if people insist, but I'd rather see the whole concept of rating posts gone.


    Idea 3:
    ----------
    Kill all the ancient old plugins nobody uses. What's the point.


    Idea 4:
    -----------
    Get some kind of disqus integration into the Newsroom, first step towards further expansion of newsroom into main forum feature.


    Misc
    -----------
    Hide staff, eliminate fagtags, get some kind of RSS for wiki recent changes that feed into the forum alongside the twitter.

    The silence either means "you're out of your mind" or "whatever i don't care"

    Maybe both. So should we do it?

    I would, but this involves bulk thread moving so changing back really isn't an option.
