Make GameTalk Great Again

But seriously, guys. If you could change anything about site policy or global rules, what would you do? I don't want to hear about personal tiffs or exactly who you would ban. I want to know what internal changes you would make on the most fundamental level to move the entire site upward for the forseeable future.

A lot of us have talked about this in different places in the past, but I want to get something like a megathread for these suggestions.

There's this one:

[What would you do if you owned GTX0 and could program?]

I think I made one more recently too but I'd have to dig it up.

Can we at least build a NIFE and make Moonray pay for it?

I'm here because someone told me to post in this for some reason.

Fucking advertisement of some kind. The main hope for this site at this point is that it gets new people. It's absolutely a must. How to make people interested in this site though, I don't know but it needs to happen.

Mod bias, whether it's intentional or otherwise needs to stop. No excuses for it. If someone is doing literally the same thing as another person or worse there is no reason it shouldn't be dealt with as well. If someone can't enforce justly, they should be removed plain and simple. It doesn't matter how well they do otherwise.

Either a bigger crackdown on general assholery needs to happen or there may as well not be one at all. From what I recall, people could get away with slyly being an asshole so long as it seems "acceptable". Insults, blatantly exaggerated and false labels, particularly mean-spirited mockery ect. As long as you can still tell how toxic it can be at times, then there's still a problem anyway. This goes both ways, you can't call someone a nazi unless they are actually doing something nazi-like. You can't call someone a commie unless they are actually blatantly a communist. That sort of thing. Really when you think about it, all that sort of thing does is provoke even more toxicity and doesn't actually contribute to any real discussion.

Take traffic away from the political forum one way or another temporarily if nothing above happens except advertisement. I get that people like it but... when it helps create more toxic moments it just makes the site look worse than it has to right now. I mean how often do you see a problem outside of that forum that isn't just personal drama or drama that came from that sub-forum? Temporarily hide the forum if it must be that way and temporarily remove it from newest replies. This is a game site (or at least it should focus on anything but politics), and that's what needs to be focused on when (if) new people come in. Not seeing people take some jabs at each other over there. They don't need to see discussions rarely amount to anything productive. Plus I mean it seems like quite a few people only posted there because it was pretty much the only active sub-forum here. This means that people who may well have no business being there, are there. I know it sounds extreme, but I don't think most people will find the site attractive while that's all over the newest replies and they probably won't even know that they have the option to hide the forum while they're here.

In the future there should be more events like mafia to keep people engaged.

That's all I have for now but maybe more with come to me.

If you could, I think it could be useful. A thread from 2011, while not necessarily irrelevant, is a little absurd.

Mod bias, whether it's intentional or otherwise needs to stop.

I absolutely agree.

You should sign up for the next NIFE game. I'm bringing in a bunch of non-GT people too (see: advertising)

How about someone puts it in the announcements bit up top instead of pointless posts like the nickname one :)

Like I'm all for fun posts, but it really didn't need to be put up there Xhin.

I think it got more activity by sticking it up there

@nullfather: So apparently I've done this a few times. Here's the more recent ones:
