One thing that always annoyed me that was implemented when Mysticales was still around was the requirement for a user to make 10 posts before they can post a URL.
There are much better ways to control Spam/Ad bots and this actually increases spam as new users that registered to release some homebrew would make 10 spam posts just to post a link.
Also I suggest removing the waiting time between reporting threads and posts. It is really annoying when there is many threads advertising while you are waiting there for the Da mn time to finish. Well, some people well abuse it eventually if it was completely removed, so a shorter time would be just better. :)
A better suggestion for the bot is to remove it, and just make a simple box in the bottom of the page of the forums to inform us the latest new on the frontpage. Moreover, giving the members privileges for commenting on the frontpage is necessary, rather than making threads in the forums.
Well, honestly i didn't see anymore suggestion threads, so ill do it here:
I've said it before, but i'd like to emphasis it once more because honestly, i think this is one of the most important...the overall layout. If it's in the works, great, if not, seriously consider it, because it looks like ass (no offense to whoever designed it), and i dont want to go past General because TBH, i'm afraid ill get lost or something and not be able to find my way back to Off-Topic. And i might meet wolves.
Anyways, so yeah, a skin is good and all, but i honestly dont think it needs a skin as much as a layout...now don't get me wrong, i'd love to get a really cool lookin' theme to rep, but being able to actually NAVIGATE the site, so i can post more, etc, is much more important imo.
Just my 27 cents.
