    Can the Queens Park Rangers club forum be moved from Premier League to League Championship and the Blackpool club forum be moved from League Championship to Other Divisions?

    Weren't you ever part of the BSSM threads? Or the B@W threads? Or any of those on FFA? :p

    I actually agree with you. Good stuff, sir

    I think the whole moderator situation would need to be analyzed. Serious problems are happening in the Mexico forum, but I would imagine it is a recurring problem in other forums. As Sanchito said, lots of knee jerk reactions going on, that makes you wonder if some of those mods are the correct candidates for the job.

    Since they're nearly finished with their 1st season, Jacksonville Armada should be moved from NASL: Expansion to the main NASL forum.

    Posters were also heavily harassed back then, too. It was to the point that cyber-bullying could be used to describe the behavior.

    I disagree, sure there were people who abused the rep system, but people are going to abuse anything they can get their hands on. This is a situation that can be managed, imho. I feel the most beneficial aspect how having ability to neg rep is to make posters aware, especially new posters, that they can improve on their content and be more thoughtful next time around they get to posting. Posters do catch on to this. Other forums that I have visited with this approach tend to be more successful. You see more activity and discussions are more complete.

    Other forums I've seen posters neg-repping simply because they do not like the person they are neg-repping, and it has brought their sites down. It's easier to abuse neg-repping as opposed to positive-repping, plus I see plenty of active discussions happening in this site anyway; we don't need the neg-rep system IMO.

    As for new posters being aware on how to make a good post, I'm sure they'd already be influenced by the way the conversations flow in the threads they visit.

    That is an indication that neg-rep is not needed.

    We already (rightly!) prohibit images, but we should also ...

    Serious Suggestion: Limit signatures to two lines.


    Noticing a couple offenders in this very thread.

    And, yes, I am a cranky, no-fun bastard.

    Good point.

    If someone is a great poster and contributes to the site in a positive way with lots of insight, never runs afoul of the mods, but is known in real life to be disliked by a few people...yeah. "I don't like you. I'm going to neg you to get you off the site."

    Rather than have a topic say it had its last post "35 minutes ago" or however long ago, I would rather it say the time of the post.

    I haven't paid that close attention, but I think it does after an hour has passed.

    How about a way to embed html5 videos? It's ridiculous that a forum as big as BS still doesn't have this.

    I know it stops eventually, but I want it to display the time of the post immediately.

    I like seeing minutes up to an hour - shows me where the most recent ones are and how recently, simply and directly. Status quo on this on for me!

    Could it be both?

    Last post twenty minutes ago at 12:15 PM?

    That would be a compromise.

    Can't believe I didn't think of this before.

    The option to have a background image. I'm sick of this plain grey background; it's so unappealing. Btw someone ought to design a new header, or better yet, a brand new layout. This current layout is far too dull.
