    Hey I like that idea (about rewarding members somehow)... I would only be a little worried that it might end up being a popularity thing? It would suck for any worthy members to end up being isolated. I do think though, that rewarding members for any outstanding contributions is awesome. Y'know, something a little more than increased post counts or credit points. And member status loses its luster (just a tiny bit) once your a veteran (unless you're fortunate enough to become staff lol).

    I've always enjoyed the site for what it is, going back to Gaia...I didn't last longer than a few months there simply because it was too much. I pretty much restricted myself to a few certain areas, but that got even more boring after a while. What I like here is that even if there's only say, 150-200 new ones when I check, there's always something I could relate to and hopefully give an opinion to. That's also something I like: The discussion topics and the like are among the best I know and I love see other people's opinions on certain topics/issues. So yeah. Boring? Possibly. Organized? Definitely. Still fun? Yup. ^_^

    I think he meant making a contest or doing something new, not necessarily spam threads.
    Crazy people don't know they're going crazy. They think they're getting saner.

    That's true, most forums do allow lots of spam that's why there's constant traffic on them. The problem is people on sites like that can spam, curse, bash, flame or whatever and it would be too hard to track seeing as how much activity they receive.

    well,i think variety of contest will do...but,like some of you said that a whole participation by the already user is needed...has it point,then, i have to work hard...
    but,like already contest such as poem contest and sig. contest...not all of them can participate maybe because they not really good at these things...so,should we add more contest...?

    i remember several years ago there was a spam section and there were games! there was this army game where you build up an army and attack other members but several things changed and then i left. but i see now that things have changed again and i decided to give it another shot!! XD!!

    For whatever reason, despite it's name, I have never really viewed this site as an anime forum. I believe this place is wildly diverse, and in reality, the possibilities are endless. It seems that perhaps people are waiting around for something cool to happen, not realizing that the site is in fact member driven. Without member participation and interaction, things wont and cant; "just happen". I would say that if any aspect of this place is boring or leaves you otherwise unsatisfied, make a personal effort to improve your site. I've been here for about 5 years, the site is pretty much the same. It's all about the people, and what we are willing to contribute.
