RE: What is one idea or suggestion that would take this forum to the next level?
It'd be cool if we could post data sheets as screenshots of text and make it so people have to register to see images. This would prevent at least some lurkers from leeching value and also protect the datasheets from the search engines.

Also I like to browse this forum at work so if there is naked pictures in a thread people should put NSFW in the title. I clicked on something about pornstars the other day and almost got caught. Yeah I know it was about pornstars but given that people rarely post explicit content I wasn't expecting anything with full nudity.

Countdown to the-forum-should-be-private.

Oops, too late.

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.
Agreed. I should have said the race stereotypes. Though Tuth has a point that it is impractical.

For a time, I want to say, images in the forum were only viewable by logged-in members. Am I wrong in this assessment? I seem to remember not being able to see images back in my lurking days, just broken links.

I would post more of my sluts if it went back to that.

IIRC that was a glitch or accidentally incorrect setting in the forum software.

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?

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

I understand your concern but cliquishness is already present on the forum and I think an addition of an ignore function to chat and IM would help solve those problems. Just throwing out suggestions, though. I already like the forum as it is.

This is a pain in the ass for you Roosh, but something along the lines of planning some meetups with top posters on the forum such as Emech, ali, gman, and others... that would help the forum. The great thing about top posters like them and Mixx isn't necessarily the info they put out, it's their high participation rate here which draws in people to participate and expands conversations.

The meetups would provide a lot of fodder for more participation from others, ex. DR thread with emech/ali/elbard.

Here are my suggestions:
  • More nice themes to be able to choose from
  • Make forum completely private for members, except for a few boards
  • NO more sub-forums
  • Chat room

Why not make one section of the forum where ONLY members with a certain amount of experience (say 150 or more posts) can chat in and talk to each other about. Maybe members with 500 or more posts can only be allowed in that section, kind of like a VIP section of the forum.

More pictures of the slays with the face blurred out maybe? Its hard to have an 'absolute' rating scale. One guys 7 is anothers 10. It gives you perspective on where the other guy is coming from.

I'd like to see a Highlights of the Day/Week/Month feature. Threads with the most number of recent views and posts at the top of the list.

Maybe a trending keyword twitter feed. Ability to use hashtags on the forum that ties into the twitter feed somehow.

Maybe a forum member discount for your books. A certain number of likes achieved on your posts earns you some RooshBucks
you can use for an upcoming book, coffee mug, t-shirt etc. Just a way to increase the quality of post content.

It could dramatically increase your sales Roosh. Well maybe not dramatically but significantly.

I agree with this to an extent. I would only be excited about the coffee mug if it had Roosh's glaring face plastered on it, staring back at me.

I also agree that more member meetups would be good. I've met a handful of members on here. I should have met Soma and YoungMobileGlobal as well but our schedules didn't work out so well. 5 or 6 of us all got together in BKK though and it was definitely beneficial. I ended up hanging out with a couple of the guys several times, and I'm sure we will meet up many more times when I'm back in BKK.

X-rated private only section to post private pics of conquests, need 1000 posts and 1 year on the forum to qualify.

Edit: Probably not the best idea for legal reasons if anyone ever infiltrated it, but it sure would be fun.

I’d rather be far right, than far wrong!

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

Doesn't the 'view new posts' button satisfy this need?

RE: What is one idea or suggestion that would take this forum to the next level?
The race questions aren't necessarily about insecurity. There can be legit reasons for asking location-specific race questions. The problem isn't with the questions, it's that someone always comes into the thread and starts flaming, and others join in. If someone can't provide an answer or legit advice to the question, they shouldn't bother with the thread. If someone has that type of question, I suggest PMing the author of the datasheet and keep it off the thread to avoid the eyes of provocateurs.

What if we had one thread ONLY about datasheets of the areas we are in currently (like you could ONLY post data sheets and that is it)? That would be pretty cool right?

Or do we already have a thread like that?

This isn't necessarily for us but more for Roosh. He should have a donation button on his blog and the forum. I think with all the great free advice and data sheets some guys are definitely going to kick Roosh down with some cash to help with server fees and to keep him traveling and keep the stories and advice coming.
