    How about... Adding the ability for members to delete their own threads? I'm not certain why we don't already have this ability (it would sure save your moderators a lot of work).

    If you find a member posting in violation of the rules, report it.

    Plus, after that month: They should be stripped of their dignity and forced to sing a Justin Beiber song, which will be recorded, and then heard by all everytime one posts a new message. And their avator will show their picture with a TROLL cap atop their head. Below that avator will be a yellow sign with big black letters stating: "F*ck me up the A** with a meat hook! I've been a bad, bad boy." For a 1 year period.

    It's pretty obvious we need a gay personals section.

    Why would the rest be subjected to suffering from a choir of Justin Beibers?

    Well, as long as this is here...

    I'm on some other forums with a dedicated YouTube embed button, and I think that'd be a great feature here. Sometimes videos embed and sometimes they don't, if a button could be added into the forum to make them always embed - I think it'd be a fantastic addition.

    GTF youtube is the easiest of anything to post here imo, dont bother with any of the hyperlink bs, just copy the url and paste it here directly in the 'text' window, i've never had a problem with YT here.......02

    I would like some troll face smiles, so that my real life smile can be online too!

    Also, making it so youtube videos show up as links, instead of players, because too many players make the thread way to laggy!

    LOL G&P , we could go one step further and set up a hearing if you will 30,60,90 days after the banning, the banned member could contact his witnesses to be called, the prosecutor could show up & hear the case out and decide if the banned member has learned his lesson and deserves another chance. In some cases such as tuffmuff and jimmerella, i'm sure there'd be 100's of people in attendance lol. :applause:

    These issues can be addressed at the response screen. All you have to do is find the checkbox below the response box which reads "automatically embed media", and deactivate it for the rest of that session; or you can go onto the "options" menu in your user CP and permanently disable automatic parsing of youtube links.

    And GTF, to ensure youtubes properly embedding, remove everything aside from the pure youtube address:

    http: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=u97vVcNTyis&feature=related

    The red section is Youtube-internal trafficking, and I've found that embedding works best with all of that cut off.

    The one thing I think this site NEEDS is a "current" page, or something similar. Meaning, a page that lists the newest threads that have been posted in, from all sections. So basically it would take the last 30 posts and display them on one page by thread.

    Pretty much like this: Fender Stratocaster Guitar Forum

    There's a link to New Posts, at the top center of every page, immediately above the ad banner.
