Okay so how are we going to do this ?

Drop your ideas here... Any suggestions... We should increase the female population on this site nothing but good will come from a larger female presence we all know that... It's possible and this isn't the thread to say it isn't. This is the thread to place some idea's to make it happen because it could.

I'll be the "Female Czar" lol the head of this operation....

It can !
How about we make a female a mod ? 1 Female and have her come in here and post idea's to attract her fellow females... I think a Female mod would be important...

She would know what would attract more Females here... She would also know what we should be strict against to build a Female membership...

we can just ask a female we dont have to make one a mod.


Lol this guy is against the idea of a female mod lol... I don't see the harm in that I think it's a good idea to have some what of a representative for the females someone they can hit up if there is any problems harassment etc... She could be the one that's real passionate about the bullshit some of the males give the females here real strict... Idk make Danielle a mod she's been here for a while or there are a few other canidates but I'm sure a female would be down.

Well it's our responsibility to make them act according to the rules. We set zero tolerance strict rules against any sexual harassment or any nonsense at all against female members will result in a week ban that's all.... I mean it's the same thing for everything else here; rules have to be set and the members have to abide by them to keep this place orderly.. So for 1 the members behavior should be a piece of cake to us the only part we have to talk about is how we can get a larger female membership on here..

I'm not against the idea of a female mod. I'm against the idea of a new mod at the moment because who is even an option? If we put a girl on its just going to be a gimmick. No girl that posts deserves to be one. And i'll go out on a limb and say out of all the females Danielle is the LEAST likely candidate for a female mod.


How is she the least likely ? Lol I mean I don't see what she's done wrong.. We aren't talking about Milk or Charged or failure she doesn't troll at all from what I seen.. She actually contributes in the wdywt thread idk someone fill me in ? Lol Who else would be a canidate ? If you really think about it we don't get any problems from females at least I don't.... Like Smoulder and the other ones Their real mature don't troll at all the only member I can say I see come on here alot is Danielle and that's it.. As far as females go.

Wait...

Are we hiring a female mod for the sake of hiring on a female mod? I think having some diversity among mods is a good idea, but bringing someone on just because they're female isn't exactly kosher.

And that begs the question... Would it even help in promoting more female interaction with the site? The thing driving away the females is the kiddies teasing/acting up like its 5th grade boys vs girls type shit.


Either way I think having a Female mod will help diversity wise and with help in idea's and gaining a bigger female membership....

Once we get a female mod which I nominated Cuhlaire & Danielle between the two.... We can move forward... I think that's an excellent start to get idea's from a female member to have a female mod help us tell us what she think would attract more females... I think we can just ask like infamous stated above ^^ but having a female mod will help the process. Every mod on here is male 95% of the members are male; If we at least have one female mod it's a start for the females to have some type of representative...

Right now Hypebeast is set up like the NFL lol... I don't see why Im the only one that's stressing this issue. Their are so many sites on the web where females and males can come together so that alone is proof that it can work !

1st Step : Representative... Female Mod.

Consider that...

After that we can get some information from her. A female audience is good for the site trust me that alone will boost the amount of members on this site make the site more active etc. (shit is sounds so good you can't imagine it !). Once we get a female mod or "representative" we can move on....

Like I said before above.... It's our responsibility to make the rules and enforce them period. They have to abide by the rules we set. Zero tolerance. Same thing as posting pornography here you know why they don't do it ? Because we set that rule and we ban or infract those who break that rule it's as simple as that.


Their are many forums on the net that males and females share. It works out trust me.

If it doesn't work it would be only our fault.

i can understand getting a chick involved as far as helping the forum out but i dont see how a female mod would help bring females to the board. hell milly is chick and that didnt help any. hb just has a bad rep thats all so the chicks stay away. like hero said we'd have to start fresh and rebuild from the ground up.

The board has suffered from a Lord of the Flies mentality for years and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Certainly having a female mod will do nothing to attract women to the board, I haven't paid attention to those being named so I'll go with the opinions of other mods but it should be obvious that they can handle being a mod regardless of their sex. As far as registration goes, Drew if you can convince Kevin to create a delayed registration then you're a better man than I, Travis and I have hounded him for years to do it, let me know if he agrees to it.

No offense but does Milly count ? lol I mean from what I remember (and correct me if I'm wrong) she was a real tomboy she's definetly not the female type we are even talking about attracting... On top of that when Milly was in we never really talked about it maybe she would've been good help to us but we were not thinking about it then...

No one is really reading what I'm saying.. I NEVER said a Female Mod will bring more females to the board I said it's a start ! Females would have a representative (if that) out of all the mods they will have one of their own (or in the future more).

From their we can have a female in this section (moderators section) to help us by giving us idea's to bring more females in... What's the problem with that ? Why can't this be done ? I think it's a great start !



How is a female mod, going to attract an female demographic.


Female Mod: " you should come to hypebeast, im a mod there, so you'll be safe"

The logic in this is flawed.

/Also ask yourself how will one female influence a male dominated forum....she won't
; Fact of the matter is this forum will never be populated with even a semi-high percentage of females. Taking an account of the current ratio in which i don't know exactly but one could estimate its around 10:4000 - 10 females(Active) for every 4000 males. You would think a fashion website, Female infested. There are professional gaming websites with more females.



Above answers your question... I NEVER said she would attract females that makes no sense.. I said she could help us with idea's along with help keeping the BS in the forums clean..

You guy's are thinking extremely negative about this. Like I'm the only one that would like to see HB with more females. I'm the only one that can see this happen...."But the members we can't handle them around females"...... "This won't help anything"....

If we can do this we can fix alot of problems make HB more interesting.

When you find a female on the board who's actually deserving of mod status and can handle the job then suggest her but I don't see anyone agreeing with your choices so for now I'd consider it a dead issue.

This site is a sausage fest I just thought it would be better to have more females on here... That would make things more interesting and active all around. But I guess you guy's want things to stay the same that's the biggest problem we have with things around here. Things stayed the same for so long that's why this site is almost completely "Off-Topic" activity ; not enough was being done all around. Drew is managing now so I'm hoping we can get some change around here.

It's a sausage fest because streetwear and kicks is primarily male oriented, with all due respect good intentions aren't going to change that.

Hypebeast isn't just streetwear anymore maybe in 07 I would've agreed with you... Even Kevin would disagree with you this site is FASHION + CULTURE period. That whole street wear scene died down compared to how it was a couple year's ago.... It's still here but it's not the dominating part of this forum anymore. When it come's to fashion and culture that's universal Males & Females share that. So to totally dismiss this agenda would be a mistake. There are plenty sites like I said before that Females and Males share so to just say "fuck it we don't want that" (When we all do and we all know it would make things different and interesting)would just be because of laziness.
