You guys really should just replace it with an announcements board lol, there's no point in keeping a "stickied threads in general graveyard"

Flip has done some bad things. Cool. We all have, some more than others. You guys seriously need to grow up and put it behind all of you. If you guys acted this way about everyone else who have done stupid things before, half this forum would be treated like splode. You guys aren't just being annoying or trolling anymore, this is really starting to become harassment and it's not splodeing funny. Everyone makes mistakes, move the splode on.

I personally would remove the whole Ideas category to be honest. Geoff doesn't check it, and he has only implemented 1 or 2 ideas from the category since 2008. It's a great category, but it doesn't have much use anymore. I do think Personal Exhibition deserves some more love though.
If that's the case, sounds like a perfect reason to just delete it, especially since Moderation Requests is generally used for forum ideas, which are the only ones that can be implemented.

I dont think any thread needs to be permanently stickied to be honest. The users will check it once, and then forget about it. If something does truly need to be stickied for a long period of time, it can be thrown into our Announcement/Stickied Threads category. We need to keep the stickies out of General though ahaha.
What I mean is threads that are specific to the board should always be stickied, like this and this. There should definitely be an announcement board, I think the only stickied thread in general should be the Discord server thread and maybe The Sploder Informer (I blame its failure to being completely hidden). I think stickying threads that actually have something to discuss and is becoming popular could be stickied for a time too, like when we sticky good debates in Debate Tower, and it would make more sense for those to be "featured topics" rather than being a pointless board.

Yeah, I can definitely agree to that. Once something comes up which the Mods should consider taking a risk on, the community should really let them know however. Perhaps the Community needs more say in things?
The community should always have a say in whatever risk is being taken, no question about it.

Also to bump into your convo with sticki, I've said before that I think a cosmetic rank given just for being active would be a nice addition and would give new members something to strive for.

Yep, I definitely agree. That's why I think we need to clean up all the boards and what not. Spreading out all the boards, makes specific spots "active" but it kills others. If we combine more, the 1 area is active rather than 2 out of 3 etc.
I don't think a board clean up is necessarily going to add activity, but I do think rearranging boards will. For example, Ideas and Personal Exhibition are in spots that hide them, putting less activity in those areas. I also believe splitting up General a little bit (just a little, not too much) could be a good thing to avoid clutter in General and bring better discussion. This is why I think the Music board should be brought back, most music threads don't get much attention in General because of everything else there but when the board was around, those threads would see more activity. If you got rid of the Debate Tower, there would be less serious and mature discussion since people can't go to one place to say what they wanna say.

A whole cleanup of the forums would be fantastic. Something definitely needs to be done regarding stickied threads as well. I think a thread should be stickied maybe for 1 week max before it gets bumped off. If the thread is active enough, it wont need the sticky.
It depends on the thread really, if it's just an announcement it shouldn't be up for too long but there are plenty of threads that need to/should be be stickied indefinitely.

Whilst I do agree with some of what you said, you'll need to define what exactly you mean by "taking risks", as that's such a broad term on a forum like this one. As for the the past is the past and what not, take the Soldier purge for example. It's failed 3-4 times now, and doing it over and over at this point is just insanity so a fix must be made, which is why we are discussing all our issues.
When I say taking risks, I just mean trying out new ideas. I feel like the staff are very reluctant to try new things. Some things in the past don't work (like the purge), but I think others could, especially with new people executing them (like running Ideas). A bit of a tangent here, purging a social rank is a really dumb idea that leads to nothing positive and just shouldn't be done, that really should only be done for staff ranks. I'm not just saying that because I was purged, I've believed that ever since I learned what a purge was.

Absolutely that's my main gripe with Gameshows and Events which is why I think we need a break from them. I'm definitely being too harsh saying we need to ban them, but we definitely need to lessen the amount we have.
I can understand that. I feel like people are going overboard because of the whole "we're losing activity" thing. A set schedule for gameshows would be a nice idea, and I think gameshow ideas (not full blown plans, just simple ideas) should be encouraged so that it can be more organized. With events, it all just depends on the event. Small weekly game contests and stuff are fine, and if done correctly they do boost activity by giving people something to look forward to frequently, making them want to stay.

We just need people to be more dedicated and active in forum activities. The potential is all there, it just needs to actively happen. I also believe that staff should revamp most of the boards. Fix Ideas, clean up the stickied threads in RPFGs, make Featured Topics an actual board rather than a graveyard for announcements, etc. I also believe the staff should be more considerate and risk taking when it comes to new ideas. It seems as whenever a semi major idea is put on the table, the staff almost immediately shut it down. Why not take some risks every once in a while? A lot of the time, they say the idea didn't work in the past, but they also seem to forget that the past is not the present and we have new members with fresh spins on the ideas. Also, if anyone, including staff, plans out an event, they NEED to go through with it. No bullsplode. What usually kills it is either a slight decrease in the events activity, outside factor, or just a lack of motivation. All the events and gameshows are cool, they just need to be better planned out and the host needs to keep the motivation and dedication they had from the start.

my dude you seem pretty chill, dont worry about how you look to other people, I promise you it's not gonna help. It's only gonna depress you and make your Sploder presence worse, trust me. I went through the same splode, its all good. Just be yourself my man, the community is really forgiving and forgetful (in a good way).
