That's what moderators are for. If someone uses a title that's offensive or some kind of sexual/racial slur, then change it, warn them or ban them.

Sometimes you guys are too cautious.

I agreee, people act like if they give customs avs, that the whole forum is going to burn down, and no one will survive..I dont see why we just dont turn it on for like a week? and if it gets out of hand, change it back...Weird

Well, I didn't mean it that way. I'm just saying that sometimes you need to try it and see how it works out. If people start doing dumb things and abusing it, then fine. Change it and never allow it again. If it works out fine, then leave it. It won't hurt anyone or this forum to have some change.

Thats basically what I just said lol..What I meant to say, and thought I said it preety clearly is, why dont we just try things out for a week or so, and if they dont go to swell, turn it back off...Instead of having these 10 page threads, with nothing but "this can happen" and then people saying " not if u do this"...Just turn it on, see how it goes, and then turn it off, if it doesnt work...just my 2 cents.

That's nothing to worry about, if people wanted to put porn up as spam, they wouldnt use their avatar, they'd put it in actual posts -_-

Rank Issue:

And the Whole Changing Rank Idea. Why not make it dual lined?

{Name}
{User Applied Title}
{User Rank}

Ie:
Paradox
Security Expert
Guru

ownage
Overclock Specialist
Guru

ArrizX
Sound System Guru
Moderator

Signature Issue:
And as for the Signature worry about making the thread look trashy.
1. We Have a Default setting system to not display for guests/new people, while having an option to show them for members that want it
2. You could inforce it where you can only have a banner x pixels across, by x pixels down. If anyone goes over that, it gets removed, simple.
3. If your worried about overall clutter of the page for those that do have it enabled.. You can have it only displayed for the first post in a thread
4. Or An Even more different option,
Make them required to be enclosed in spoiler tags (A Simple Add-on for VB) so that you can have maybe 4 lines of text, and a spoiler tag (So a User can click on the button to reveal the image/text)

Skin Issue:
You said the main thing about the message board is that you want it to look professional for new members, right David? So.. Leave this as the default theme. It's Great. It's Clean.

Well.. Give us members more themes to choose from (Or Get a Forum Designer to do that for you) So You get the added benefit of having a good first impression for new members, while keeping long standing ones happy with a refreshing change.

I would like to add.. that you can set it up where the default theme disables avatars, or signatures entirely, While you could have the other themes enabling them for view. (Another good option you could choose)


Overview:
Theres so many different things that can be done to make the forums look great. We understand that Computerforums means alot to you, and you don't want to change it because it has worked so far. But this is our community to. It needs to grow with us as well. With the options I've presented we can get both.




Hope People Actually read what I took time to wrote haha, I tried to organize it :P



Those are good points too, but can you have two lines of ranks?
