Youtube threads are fine. As much as people like to whine about it, it's the new GIF and I'm glad the [M] already embraced it with tags, etc.

KC being a more active and useful forum is also a great idea. Make it the ultimate shithole of spam, nonsense and such - but fully active. I think if anything, moving it to the top of the forum list and removing any bots that are set to spam it will probably do the trick. General can be slightly more serious, but for topics that don't fit anywhere else (not guns, not pot, but I don't feel like posting over on another forum type of thing?) and the KC will take it's former place but with even less restrictions. An unmoderated forum sounds both awesome and scary. Which makes it even more awesome. By unmoderated I mean rule enforcement, but no personal choice to lock a thread for instance - no matter how retarded it is unless it specifically breaks some rule that can get you in trouble, ie porn.

Genmay =dead? No idea where that would come from. I'm for one, excited about all this stuff. It was getting dead, if anything... and like that scene from Crank where he slams a whole syringe of epinephrine - genmay is running full tilt. No particular direction yet, but I'm sure once this energy is harnessed this place will kick more ass than ever
I agree it's not dead at all.

Gotta go post porn now.

I'd like to see the FAQ updated - I'm sure we have plenty of volunteers that would not mind drafting something up, and having you (sanjay/M|22) review before publishing.

I think posts should be scrutinized as well as threads - maybe not as severely, but a good opening topic is only as good as it's replies.

As far as mods/supermods go - I'd like to see proportionate "policing", for some kind of loose agreement where at least X number of mods will be online.

That being said, *every* mod/supermod should be an active part of the community - if they are going to enforce the rules, they should be seen as pseudo role models, in that their threads and/or posts adhere to all the aforementioned rules.

We have mods for a reason...we don't need backset "moderation" with "lock & ban" blah blah

while paying users should continue being the only ones given custom avatars, every user should be given a button to delete their avatar.

Tew gave me this one more than a year ago, and ever after I stopped visiting [M] while at work, and then entirely simply because I was (and still am) sick of looking at it.

As far as the women go - it's the "insult" posters - nail their asses. Everytime a female posts a pic or just starts a thread to chat, there is usually a dumb snipe, followed by a slew of insults, and the eventual posting of the attention-whore pic. There are plenty of males on this board, there should be some respect given to the females - even if a mod has to enforce that respect.

i'd like to add to these...

i agree with the two of you on your base points - its frustrating to see attempts at content (attempt not necessarily meaning GOOD or BAD) go down the shitter due to behavior like that

however - sometimes that no-holds-barred flaming is called-for and/or more entertaining than the OP

but mostly its just moronic

but how do you tell the difference between some douchebag just flaming because that's his autopilot genmay response to try to draw attention to himself - or flaming someone because they really deserve it? who gets to decide? can you create guidelines for this?

one thing that made and makes genmay what it is is GENERAL MAYHEM - while we do have some rules, it remains in many respects a free-for-all - that is both the forums greatest strength and biggest weakness - how do you reconcile that? i have no clear solutions to offer right now... the [M] started as a refuge from KYLE BANNIT, let us not forget our roots, our history

lets look back - remember the [H] genmay? i do - my memory may be faded or even incorrect, but i remember wacky, entertaining MAYHEM without all the "fuck you OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG" shit. content was king - it was respected and put on a pedestal.

heck, the original [M] was even like that - i look back to a thread i made back in 2002 - http://www.genmay.com/showthread.php?t=62608 - this was just a stupid little story from work, mildly entertaining - but i took the time to type it out in a descriptive and funny way - it wasn't EPIC or even really that remarkable - but the thread is filled with positive replies - you think that same thread would get that kind of response today?

maybe it comes down to respect - i feel that back in the "OLD DAYS" we used to respect our fellow members and think of them as our brothers in our stupid little club on the internet - somehow we evolved into an environment where its all about trying to piss on each other, even though that's not really entertaining - and i'm as guilty as the rest, admittedly

sorry - this turned into a ramble

one more thing - giving any kind of preferential treatment to female members would not be a good idea, imo

IMHO, I think it was better when only mods/admins had avatars (and they'd occasionally give someone one... like Lazarus)

this is true, but there are some "few words and a link or youtube" threads that ARE funny, and are full of content.

i don't think it would work too well if content was measured by how many characters you use, or how many pictures there are, or lack thereof. while it does help, sometimes the poster doesn't need to say a lot to create content. i'm sure there have been threads of epic nature in the past with only a couple of words spoken by the original poster.

i would suggest we have some sort of system that allows the user of the forum to "rate" threads in some way, but i could see that being abused by everyone.

i completely agree
but that's not going to change, i'm sure - people have paid for their stuff and i'd hope that the powers that be would stand by that
i'm sure the avs are a nice moneymaker and i don't have a problem with the owners being able to pay the electric bill

I enjoyed this post. It's sad that something that "long" would have definitely received a ton of "tl; dr" posts, if it were a thread on it's own.

I really don't like the irrelevent flaming - it's not funny and it's not original. When it has something to do with what they posted, then I have no issue with it - and think it's vulgarity should be boundless.
