    Default Staff list and archives

    Two suggestions...

    1. Possibly having an extra link in the top bar for Newsgab staff and their roles, so as to inform members what mods do what, for what sections, and provide education for where to send PM's in regards to issues of certain sections instead of clogging up the Forum with unwanted post counts.

    2a. Creating archive topics and giving mods access to archive threads that are one month old or more. Tech News has 444 threads for example and the first one is dated 16th June 2006 128 AM.

    2b. Why not keep the forum up to date like the Official webpage is and clean up the out dated posts and archive them? If in an archive topic, they are still accessible but new members can easily refer to threads that are current as opposed to those that are years old?

    All mods can take care of any section. The best way if there is a problem is to use the report button. Then All Amins and mods see it.

    Threads are sorted by date newest post first unless they have been bumped. It mainly only happens in the picture forum. The new section is almost always the new stuff on the first page. And as an option users can set the sorting by when the threads are started at the bottom of the page.

    Uh yes, this is default of any forum. It didn't address my suggestion though. Even the homepage has archives, which was partly why I made the suggestion.

    The front page doesn't get a lot of attention. Nether does the news really. Seems 99% of those that come just want naked women.
