    Default Crackdown

    Too many people are pointing off-topic crap and just resulting to insulting each other. I know, part of this forum's appeal is that it is lax when it comes to rules, but it's getting out of hand IMHO. I'm just suggesting that maybe you admins/mod can come down harder on those people screwing up the forums.

    Another suggestion I have is to implement a reputation or karma point system. I know, there are a lot of forums have that already, and this site does have a nice focus on simplicity and functionality, but it would be nice to know, just by looking at someone's rep points, if they are regarded by the rest of the forums as being a flamer or a contributor. Or at least a warning system would be nice, so if warnings from multiple members would equal ban consideration.

    One of the problem is the lack of mods, I don't have time to keep removing posts, but I do it every once in a while. I might have to look for a mod system like you described, sounds like a good idea.

    It is quite hard to keep track of things now. -_-

    Ok, that's cool Thanks for taking my idea into consideration. And I don't blame you Jyuudaime, since you are only one person, and there are a lot of people posting now.

    The forums seem pretty on-topic to me. I may have lower standards, but posts which add absolutely nothing are uncommon.

    Months of pressing on the members to stay on topic are beginning to pay off. =D
