There should never be any dividing of members, there is already a privileged scheme for select members which allows a few perks which is fair so apart from mods all members should be equal.

Custom signatures would be cool like user bars and stuff

I feel sorry for David, he does he best, and everytime you beg for something new, within two weeks you are asking for more and more and more.

Put yourselves in his shoes..

Exactly the way I see it joxley, people should spend more time praising him for his work and commitment instead of hounding him for other things.
IF YOU GIVE THEM AN INCH THEY WANT A YARD.

I think everything is fine how it is. We have custom avatars which is enough for me. Too much of a good thing isn't really a good thing.

plus it would subtract from the amount of posts in the regular section which wouldn't help get new members

theres both sides to this argument. on one side these things are standard on most forums, and we are just trying to catch up with them, attract some members and make it a better place.
on the other hand david is very busy, and a new theme isnt really going to affect how the forum runs. its just something we all want, and a nice extra to attract people.

Default Re: I've had it.

yeah why would we need a guru lounge? the same rules would apply so it would have no meaning whatsoever.

One suggestion, Different User Groups

0-24 Newbie
25-99 Junior Member
100-499 Member
500-999 Senior Member
1000-1999 Guru
2000-2999 Super Guru
3000+ Computer Junkie (This could be CF Junkie also)

people hit 1000+ posts way too often, and i dont think having the new groups would cause much spamming, after 1000 posts people arent obsessed over post count anymore, and it will had a better feeling of accomplishment,
