This would be pretty interesting. It's kind of like that one short-lived feature where Yahtzee, Extra Credits, Jim Sterling, and Movie Bob would all have a discussion on some aspect of gaming. I thought that was interesting and was pretty disappointed that it was cancelled so quickly.albino boo said:I would like to see the weekly quizzes back they where a lot of fun. I also think an editorial theme for some weeks would be a good idea. You wouldn't need it every week but Experienced Points, Extra Punctuation, Good Old Games and Garwulfs Corner having different takes on the same topic once a month a so would interesting. In fact I would like to see more columns like Experienced Points and Garwulfs Corner.
OT: I'd like it if people couldn't actually be banned for low content posts, get suspensions sure, but no perma-bans. It's like giving somebody a lifetime jail sentence for littering. I've seen way, way too many good users banned because they failed to put the required amount of sentences in one of their 10 000+ posts, or thought a funny image was actually worth a thousand words.
Also a way to 'like' posts would be pretty good. I wouldn't want to rank posts by likes or keep statistics on it or anything. It's just, sometimes you spend a lot of time writing a post, organizing your thoughts, maybe trying to fit a couple jokes in, and unless somebody quotes you (to tell you how wrong and dumb you are) it just kind of feels like nobody has actually read your post. It'd just be nice to have a way to give people recognition when you have nothing to add to the discussion (especially since quoting them to say "I agree" or "that was funny" is low content and will get you banned.)
Oh, and I'd like it if banned users didn't have their avatar swapped with the permaban avatar:
It was kind of funny at first, but it makes reading old threads such a pain when half the users have that avatar and I need to open each of their profiles to see if I recognize their real avatar.
