So, I been brainstorming on some ideas on making HB more poster friendly.  But I can't just do what I want. That would be unfair to everyone.  I want to know what will make posters happy to post on here. Not just browse for 2 seconds, get turned off by the trash, then leave.  Maybe bring some fresh blood. Maybe bring back some old posters.Maybe even get some ladies involved (I'm serious).  But I'm trying to see if we can't clean a couple minor things up. While I have some things in mind, I wanted to bring something to a vote. 


To get rid of the trash and increase the quality, I'm thinking of employing a vote system. I know we all enjoy humor of different kinds, but we don't enjoy spam, we don't enjoy crap threads. We don't enjoy bad jokes, clutter, and sub par trolling that lacks creativity.  

So, I'm thinking, maybe we can put everything up to a vote.  Which threads live. And which threads die.  The pro would be that it could force people to post better quality threads.  The con would be that dudes could just team up and downvote everything. 

So, what do you guys think?  Thumbs up if we should vote on threads. Thumbs down if you think it's a dumb idea.


Ultimately, I'm not going to be able to enforce this vote. But I can bring it to Drew and see if it might work.

No doubt yo.  Like I said, if you think it's a stupid idea, let me know. And if you don't mind, let me know why.   I'll close the thread on Sunday.

idk if HB can ever the same again, the majority of good posters/trolls left. Now we're just left with sub-par trolling.

PS. Fix the shoutbox plz

this is a forum and an offtopic section at that. garbage and trash threads will come and go. your vote system wont do anything
just implement a way to report people and close down threads. thats the best u can do

I'm gonna have to disagree DM.

Somebody could make a great thread but would get voted down
just because HB might not like that person.

Basically all it would be is a popularity contest....
