    I am throwing this out there because we all probably have an idea or two to improve the Hype.....my improvements are more about making me happy than anything else but please feel free to add on.

    1. Removal of the Celebrity Forum : because there is honestly no valid reason for it to exist and I think it can encourage stalkerish behavior. You will never meet Kate Beckinsale, no matter how many GIF's of her you have.

    2. Make the Hype a pay site: This would clear out a lot of the riff raff and generally make the Hype a nicer place.

    and making the hype a pay site would be ridiculous the majority of people would leave and make the site lose money and eventually shut down

    No, then that means all the pointless celebrity gossip would be posted in the community forum.

    This forum has been around for years, and it's always been enjoyable. Trolls come and go; it's nothing new.

    You were also drive away some of our more worthwhile and interesting posters in addition to the trolls.

    The Hype works pretty darn well as it is. If people have problems with trolls, maybe they should learn to use the ignore function or just not pay them any attention.
