This is a really great idea.

Maybe I'm the dumbest guy here but what is the point of all this spam? It hasn't made me want to smoke, by viagra or get a Louie Anybody purse. Does somebody really made a lot of dough with all this? Who spends the time and why?

Exactly what freaking censorship are we talking about here?

+2

An overhaul of sorts would probably help stimulate some more interest. For example, a Katy Perry Section would bring some new eyeballs to the Forum to bridge the gap between Cork Sniffers and Mid-Humpers.

FWIW, I have no trouble stickying my threads.

+3. having a strictly OT section would be cool too and cut down a lot of the clutter.

I'd love to know what this means...

To be honest, with all of my wedding planning, my forum activity of late has been mostly deleting spam/spammers and that's it, other than reading interesting threads. I'm the only one moderating threads so I have no idea what "backing out two levels is"

Do you go to school with him? Because your IP address at the time was the same as his.... that's the main reason we thought so.

I'm going to have to hold strong to the buy/sell forum idea. If there's anything that will bolster this forums activity it wold be a Llama Emporium. Possibly even a Llama and Emu Emporium just to diversify.

I tell you what. Let's get everyone's NUMBER #1 (and only their #1) idea for an extra section ("OT," "Buy/Sell," "Katy Perry," etc.) and then we'll vote to see what we should add. I'm certainly not against adding a couple of more sub-forums.

SPAM: Getting resolved. Top priority. Finally hired a new IT person to fix it. Shouldn't be long now and VERY SORRY FOR ALL OF IT!

I'd like a section about Spam.
Failing that, I'll settle for the Katy Perry section.
