Though i would change the custom titles (i always felt this was a very important little tidbit...we cant monitor them XD)
All else seems pretty darn fair.
unrelated note: Legend...stupid sig it made laugh along with the caption. good stuff.
'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
and yes, please give us avatars. i can accept not being able to have an siggy or acces to the entire gallery(meaning nerf it. for instance make it so initially you only have acces to the anime section. 200 posts=add scans/render section, 250= add whatever is left etc etc) but having a custom avatar is the first step towards a more unique posting style. i say avatar at 10 and signatures at 50 posts. I find it rather ridiculous that we can use pictures in our signature but not have a custom avatar :P it should be the other way around imo.

I'm really surprised that no one has even given any real thought to how to Attract new members. Changing when particular things come into effect won't attract new members.
Most people come to forums because of the discussions that take place in them. And has its been stated before, people aren't posting as much, so lowering the requirements for different features WILL NOT increase the ammount posts on the forum, since they're not enough to encourage people to post anyways in their current settings.
And the biggest tool that we have to attract new members is Word of Mouth. This place won't grow if people don't talk about the site.
I for one vote for none of the existing features change except one: Increase the reward for referals. Right now, you only get a credit multiplier.
Well there wasn't much talk on how to attract new members cause this topic was made to help maintain our already new members and or members.
But than again if we attract more members to the site than there is more of a chance that someone will join and become an active member so you bring up a legitimate point. One thing I think would help as well is to have it one of the first sites to show up when you put in anime forum. That's how I found this site because I remember I was searching for a forum so that I could talk about my anime obsession because where I live anime is just not very popular. When I put that in it was one of the top three to come up. For some reason that doesn't happen anymore.

So you guys are basically asking to bring back the old AO system. I remember the old system was more newbie friendly than the system we have now.
