(continued) ... thanks for the pretty editing box ... but Jo, what's the relevance, then, of "Not Relevant"?
Kyle ... dont worry, REALLY bad ideas normally dont stay around too long ... refer to the "chat room" idea, not too long ago ... it's the not-so-bad ideas that bothered me ... e.g. "wall" without privacy ...
godfather: No, it`s not like it was in the old days. In the old days the thread starter could delete replies in the thread that they have started. Now the thread starter can only flag it as not relevant, which makes the reply to just collaps. Every reply that are collapsed have a "show" link that you can click to read the reply.
Is this such a bad idea? Alternatively we can remove this option from the thread starter and only allow forum moderators to be able to flag replies as not relevant.
As if any moderator would bother.
Implement a karma system so that non-starters can upvote/downvote comments. Put the same upvote/downvote button under every photo on the site.
The upshot of this is massively upvoted hottie-pics can be used as frontpage fodder, and massively downvoted troll commenters will be more easily marked to receive the wrath of the great b&hammer Mjolnir.
