Default How would you like to see the board restructured?

Obviously we're a little out of date.

Seriously, I love this board and I'm always afraid changes are going to mess with the vibe.

Every now and then we have to look at replacing/refreshing banners. And also take a look at the forums and decide which ones should stay and which ones need to go or be absorbed into others. Right now we have a lot of forums for defunct titles.

Right, but you won't delete the threads, right? I mean people should be able to go back and talk about "Rage of the Red Lanterns" if they're so inclined or they just read it for the first time.

Oh we'd keep them, and just merge the old threads into other forums. Deleting old threads is like burning books!

I think I'm fine with this board just the way it is honestly.

You guys are no help LOL

1.) I'd put all the 'Other Corps/Other Earths sub forums into one sub forum. Larfleeze, Sinestro, Red Lanterns, Earth 2, and New Guardians. Make an additional note that ELSEWORLDS would go here as well [Superman Last Son of Earth, In Blackest Night, etc].

2.) I'd condense everything else back into individual Lantern forums. Alan, Hal, John, Guy, and Kyle would all get forums. Do away with the individual era sub forums, maybe just make a single sub-forum for GL vol 1-5.

3.) Additionally I'd make two sub-forums for the post DC Rebirth era: Green Lanterns (for Baz and Jessica), and Hal and the GLC. [this has already been done though]

4.) Keep Other Comics it's own sub forum, but condense GL on the Screen, Corps Cast, Video Games, Action Figures and Toys into something like Multimedia (for movies, toys, and games that may/may not feature GL!)You might send any more recent movie themed threads to this sub-forum to make it seem a little more active. DC/WB Entertainment, B v S, Suicide Squad, Arrow/Flash, any Marvel movie/tv threads, etc.

5.) Bring back an annual contest. This would probably get some attention on the site again and get the whole place more active. One every six months or so for writing, art, or maybe even cosplay?

6.) Encourage better behavior and maybe have a censor for the more offensive words since none of Tazz' retarded nonsense should be around to turn people away. You can't let people use the word fuck every other post and hope to get new members on the site. Maybe go PG as far as language goes, IDK...

7.) Get a couple more active mods. One or two of us OG's who have nothing better to do than refresh this page a dozen times in a day to see if Hypo or West have posted any good news.

8.) Get a GLC banner and leave it be. Enough with all the multi-colored bs. That era will never fade if we don't put it behind us. GO GREEN!

~M~

I don't know if this can be done on any kind of electronic format for a forum, but perhaps a better screening process for n00bs. Something that could at least let us know if a new person has any serious lawful offenses. I'm guessing that kind of tech isn't available yet for a comics forum, but it would give me a greater peace of mind knowing that the people I talk with are decent, law abiding citizens.

Create an ice cream sub-forum. Seriously.

So you only like hanging out with Gerard Butler? That hurts, man. That hurts.



But I know the administration has fewer than zero excuses to ever bring Tazz back, as it is wont to do. He made a mockery of this site, got banned, was begged to return, put the site at serious legal risk by handing out links to illegal torrents, got banned again, and then instead of being kept out in the cold for good, was brought back yet again.

Likening this site's administration to an unrepentant addict or a battered spouse who refuses divorce is not uncalled for.

You ask how the board should be restructured? I'd like to see a marked improvement in the aforementioned areas, for starters.

/\ Don't make me slap your ass with your own hand.

[SRS MODE ON]

Specific to Tazz, it is my belief that he will never be allowed back again after the shit he said in the SW thread, which myself and another member have screen shots of. As someone here once said (and I honestly can't remember who but the analogy was so good it stuck in my head), Tazz was akin to the raging monkey inside a barred cage. He would go off on some stupid tantrum, throw his shit at people, but since he was in a glass wall enclosure, the shit never made it out of a cage. It was funny to watch at times, but the humor quickly died when he started getting out of hand.

Until recently, I think we've had a very peaceful coexistence with each other and the board has gotten along rather well. For me, I would like to see that continue. I prefer getting along with others and not having to deal with idiotic bullshit. In other words, I LUBS U GUISE!

Except for AP. That boy concerns me.

5) We could definitely use some competitions here I reckon, it might drag my ass back here more often too.
6) No way. What's the point of censoring? It always annoys me on forums when you're restricted as to what you can say. What makes this place different is that there's all sorts of bright characters here. Dimming down the language here would make this place too generic and PC. Plus I think basically everyone here's an adult now anyway (even I've turned 18). Why restrict the language to PG if everyone on the forum's an adult?
7) I agree with a couple of more mods.
8) And I agree with this. Maybe even just stick with a Green Lantern logo and/or font? To keep things slick and minimal. Or another idea would to be having a changing logo like we used to do with all the different Corps, but instead have each banner represent a different decade/era of Green Lantern (for example Golden Age with Alan Scott, Silver Age with Hal Jordan etc).

As for layout I'm not overly in a rush to replace it with anything too drastic. Maybe one or two updates such as "flattening" the 3D looking boarders which are a bit out of fashion or making some of the emoji's more crisp, which might draw some others here by making it look more modern whilst not deviating too much from what we have now. But overall no big changes needed.

It may sound weird since I censor myself here by using *** in quotes using profanity, but I strongly agree. I was in a mailing group/message board once that was heavily censored (and obsessed with spoiler tags) and it was so annoying. The occasional mod warning to anyone who is getting ridiculously offensive is enough for me.
