Home Page

While members of classic GT probably love that long dissertation of this site's history, how we got created should not be what people see first when they open the home page. You don't go to Walt Disney World's homepage and find 4 paragraphs of how Walt Disney started his company with Ub Iwerks making Alice in Wonderland cartoon shorts: that's saved for a special page, or an "About Us" page.

Our home page should describe what you (Xhin) hope this site is and what it should be used for.

The only requirement I think we should have is keeping the famous last line: "So pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of your favorite fizzy beverage, and make yourself at home." That line is legendary.

Miscellaneous

I don't want to be "that guy," but most of what you mentioned are small things. Forums that lost mods but still have "Modded By:" could be cleaned up, but that doesn't necessarily make the site more user-friendly or engaging. A design that encompasses Gametalk from page to page needs to be agreed upon, and that style needs to be consistent. This site lacks design fundamentals all over... Things range in complexity and aren't quite clear. The buttons over replies? I never use them. Only emoticons, and even then, rarely. I wish posting Youtube videos was automatic from the link, like Facebook.

Ratings

I agree it would be nice to have more interactive elements here. But ratings shouldn't be other people rating threads. Being able to post a review and get a different icon/color based on the review rating, seeing what's trending, thread view count, a list of games recently mentioned, stuff like that would be awesome! But we've already gotten into details. We need to step back and look at the site as a whole: what is it's purpose, and start figuring out our design from there.
