    As with every forum on the net, there are people who think this place is just fine, others who feel that they could contribute their ideas to make it better, and perhaps others who might feel that this forum is run in a very unfair or unjust manner.... I don't know ;)

    Consider this thread as the "complaint department" of GN, aka the equivalent of TPU's thread here.

    GN needs to be promoted more on TPU. I think all of the mods should have a link to GN in their sigs. Some people from TPU have said they didn't even know this place existed. That make sense if you only look at TPU from the recent threads option. GN rarely appears and then only to point you to the local TPU thread for things that get moved there. Threads like that should be moved here so when people follow the links they come to GN.

    There should also be an option both here and on TPU to filter out specific sub-forums. For example, over on TPU, most of the time I don't want to see for sale threads when I do a recent thread listing, but I have no way of filtering them out.

    We still don't have titles. Member & Senior Member are boring.
    Would be nice if this gets addressed. I know theres a thread from Dan about this but it drowned, and lacked seriousness. Maybe an official thread, a contest even? Or enable custom titles at x amount of posts (but not 5000 please) or for just being awesome?

    There is, it is stuck on "feed me data". So, feed me data, if it isn't completely lame I shall add titles. Keep in mind this is gn so it can go any way.

    Everybody who is awesome already has a custom title, even some people who aren't awesome do.

    Custom titles need to be well though out and not everybody would certainly agree with them. As for custom titles after X posts...meh, why not...those who don't want it can keep being "Senior".
    ^This. I mean, I like the Hot Girl thread (although I haven't visited it in a while), but seeing just suggestive clothing is getting boring. Then again, I do have other sources for this.

    Since this is general nonsense, we could have different post levels marked by the names of famous clowns or comedians - I'm guessing the latter would be more acceptable to most.

    Also, we could change those names depending on the person's infraction level. So if you get say more than 20 infraction points you would be changed to "bozo" level or something similar.

    We could also use character names from classic comedies. Although in either the case of comedians or comedy characters, I'm not sure that any ranking would be self-evident. That may or may not be a disadvantage though.

    Okay...

    Well, I never imagined getting all these replies to a thread about a forum supposedly full of innocent sunshine, fun and wtf's (r)

    If anyone thinks an issue mentioning names is important enough to need discussing in privacy just shoot me a pm.

    It's the most I can offer [​IMG]

    I want god damn animated gifs avatars opened up.....it's BS REAL BS....Also the Size of the pic could be increased as well.

    No Sig pics is also BS

    Also not just being able to grab the WHOLE LINK from youtube, and posting it here to share a video. Instead of picking out the small correct part from the whole link. VB used to not be youtube friendly I guess, but I know it is now.....



    I would also like to be able to post boobies...maybe not the V or the D I can understand that. Yet boobs are boobs, and they are supposed to be shared with everyone when possible at all times.
