if you were going to do a best of threads forum, you would have to implement some kind of ranking system for each thread, where a user could give it a rank and based on the number of people and the rank it would get placed in said forum. It wouldn't be that difficult to do I don't think.

Thread rating is a good idea, imo, as long as members aren't allowed to vote (can't make new accounts to vote your own thread high etc)

I too would love to know the answer to this question.

I first considered this idea during the Best Thread of 2004 voting.

You are right, Loggy, I will investigate the rating system as a way of selecting threads. I just really would not like to see the thread overpopulated, so I will first have to ensure that it takes adequate positive voting to elect said threads. Suggestions on this are welcome.

Additionally, I'd like to start a subforum with links to all of the TWIP photoshop threads.

(I envision both forums as being link posts to the existing posts in GD, so we don't have multiples flying around.)

rating threads suck...personally i think page views is the best barometer of quality, if people like it they will go back. Where as only some people will ever rate a thread.

i like the rating idea, but i'd also suggest getting a few of the old school tw'ers brain-storming for old threads, just to get it all going

Nothing against Yogi but that does absolutly nothing for me. I want a WAP version of the forums. Why would i want to check the news on the site everyday from my phone? WiForums makes some software to have make a WAP version of the Forums. That would be great.

At this time I have no plans to invest in a WAP version of the forums based on demand and system resources.

I have no idea how this would relate to TW.

No. There's an ignore function in which is being improved as we speak, and I don't believe bans should be based on popularity among a vocal minority or e-clique bandwagon.

Yes, it is, its just a matter of me troubleshooting the script this week. Additionally, there has been a decision by the staff to start nixing sigs that are pushing the envelope. If you find your sig gone, you were not work safe.
