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.
 
They can delete the celebrity forum once they throw out the sports forum. :rolleyes:
 
Pay to post here? Hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

If you don't like the celebrity or sports forums, DON'T GO IN IT!!
 
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

there is another board similar to this that I post on that went to a pay site last year....traffic has dipped a bit, but things are generally the same
 
Let's delete SHH! Community Forum as well :whatever:
 
Fine BL you can pay the rest will just carry on as if you had never even suggested that idiotic idea
 
I'm not paying to post here. Ever.

its not a horrible idea......and the general motivation is cleaning out a lot of the trolls and the like.....I'm trying to figure out how to make things nicer....

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 just pissed a lot of people off on here with your ideas. Way to make things nice.

I dont see anyone else suggesting anything productive.....you cant do an age limit because there is no way to validate.....and we all wish things were a little better on here...

Fine One Idea Make it so threads have to be pre approved by a mod it will take longer for a new thread but then we wont get the crap

I really don't think any big changes are necessary. :huh:

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.

I think things are fine the way they are.
