?

(Keeping in mind the limitations of the software where structural changes are not easy to make.)

Datasheets with more pictures of the city attractions / clubs and girls will be great.
What Greek Kamaki is doing lately is quite impressive and useful.

A chatroom or instant messaging system, if that's possible.

More sub-forums.

There are some topics that are big enough on this site to warrant their own sections, for example:

- Work and money.

- Fashion.

- Politics.

Sorry but I disagree, forums with a lot of sub-forums tend to be kinda boring too follow as you have to bounce back and forth, surfing small sections of the forum.

I would suggest to put a "latest replies" function.
A button that you can click to see the latest replies in every forum.

RE: What is one idea or suggestion that would take this forum to the next level?
This is regarding the travel forum. Even though the formal RVF Ambassador Program didn't take off, a centralized way to tell who is an expert in a particular location would be useful. As well, a way to tell all the users in a current or future location would be good.

One way to implement this less formally would be to have, in addition to current country, 2 new sections in a user's profile: i) countries (or cities) of expertise, iii) future travel plans. Then, somewhere on the forum, you could click on a particular country or city and see all the people who are experts, currently there or are going there. From there, users can PM each other for whatever their needs are, e.g. information, meetups, etc. It would make it much easier to find out, as a random example, that Handsome Creepy Eel is knowledgable about Croatia.

I can't have sex with your personality, and I can't put my penis in your college degree, and I can't shove my fist in your childhood dreams, so why are you sharing all this information with me?

RE: What is one idea or suggestion that would take this forum to the next level?
The "like" and "hall of fame" features have helped me find pertinent posts more easily.

I often hear that in the future (and now), the internet will be in need of content aggregators to sift through all the crap and give people the good stuff.

Like most guys, I am very visually oriented. It would be cool to be able to get a more visual way of browsing topics. I guess this is sub-category idea. Or maybe there can be a way of tagging threads or posts like they do on youtube?

This whole forum is built on ideas, and it seems like game is a never-ending competition against society and feminism.

In an effort to promote even more effective game, I think it would be cool to have some way of making the posts all compete with each other based on quality. This might give more motivation to guys to really go out and innovate.

Kind of like Mixx's last AirBNB thread. That was braking new ground.

RE: What is one idea or suggestion that would take this forum to the next level?
Seeing that we have so much talk about race and so many underlying race threads, it would be good if we had a thread on travel where we can talk about race openly or at least talk about race in terms of an area. I am sure people would like to know (and many have messaged me) how ____ race of guys do in ____ area.

I am assuming you want more viewers, seeing that there are a lot of insecure people out there (about race) and race comes up so often in other forums, it would be good to let it be discussed on here to some extent.

Trick is to not let race threads overwhelm the forum because then it just becomes dirty.

Forum Member Meet-ups and Ambassador Program needs to combine somehow, That is most Value I have gotten out of the forum.

I know people have qualms about not disclosing their location, I know I do ? Any solutions to keep people satisfied about secrecy and still be able to help other members out ?

Bad idea. Race threads always turn bad because you have to make generalizations when discussing race and this always seems to piss someone off. Race talk should be kept to a minimum.

Forum sponsored meetups would be cool. Only problem is someone would have to "sponsor" each meetup and manage logistics. I don't see secrecy being the biggest issue. Logistics seem like the biggest issue.

Don't know how much of this is possible of within the software, but these things:

-A trophy or medal icon next to Hall-of-Fame threads.

-Auto-locking of old or stale threads, to avoid necro-ing (I'm torn about this one).

-More post icons (the ones next to threads).

-Choice of different color schemes (even though I like this Spartan one)

I agree with this.

I'm not down with disclosing my exact location real-time to the public but it'd be nice if there was some way to click an option that shows people what city I'm in, only to other people in that city.

The flags system has certainly helped with this aspect but it'd be cool to have a way to meet other locals in a city without lurkers knowing where I am. A chat room could also be useful in this assuming conversations there aren't logged.

I don't like this idea. This would encourage cliquishness and harassment of senior member by desperate newbies looking for personalized advice.

We should have almost a no tolerance policy for race threads. They are absolutely pointless and add no value for members and the forum.

Create some sort of smoke and mirror subforum with chick crack so we could bang local girls like ask a local guy or something and it directs the question/chat to the closest member.

And one of those rotating globe maps with all the red dots on it. I love those

I know, I get that, but I am talking race threads + travel threads because there are countries I have visited in Europe where certain races of men are pretty much screwed in terms of socializing. Like the hatred towards their background is strong so maybe members who fall into that category should know the danger. Race can be discussed without it being all stereotypes, I am talking about discussing it more so on an objective kind of level rather than a "look, go to this country, race y has a harder time than race x".

Like if we had a race thread which didn't talk about any sort of racial superiority, just a racial awareness thread which let guys know which countries they may run into issues by people in authority. Agree with the overall statement, race threads are generally bad and lead to racist posts.

What you're advocating has proven impossible. The last thing we need is more threads asking how Race X does in Place Y. I strongly object.

Most of the forum should be browseable by members only. Just have a limited public forum.

I have had this sig since 2015 and received thousands of post likes; yet not one person has commented on my sig. Perhaps you're familiar with the work it parodies? Let me know!

You can already do that by asking someone who posts a data sheet a question on the thread about it. No need to create a sub-forum or special thread for that.

Besides, it is mostly opinion as to whether country "x" or "y" good for certain races. Just dole out facts. For example: If someone asks "Did you see many mixed couples when you were out there?" Just answer "Yes", "no", etc...
