If there could be one thing I would change it would be the forum “really above top secret”
That forum is not what I thought it would be when I was able to access it, this is what I think it should be.
I think that RATS should be a place that is essentially a “mods pick” forum, were only threads of high quality get put selected by the Mods and
were only members who have achieved a certain level of experience on the site can access.
I think such a change would be amazing, it would give people more of a incentive to go write huge in depth threads. I know that for me there is
nothing more infuriating than writing a 2000 word thread full of references only for it to end up at the bottom of the “recent posts” page because
everyone is too busy arguing about rocks. Once a thread falls of the recent posts page it might as well never have been written.
If we changed RATS in the way I am talking about that might not happen quite so much.
How the specifics would work I don’t know, some would say that mods are showing favouritism and that is the only real reason I can see against it
but the mods already get accused of that and I think on balance more members would welcome it than start ranting about how their YouTube mash up
thread didn’t get into the forum.
I think that’s the only things I would change that’s significant, there probably a few other little things but nothing that comes to mind right
Good thread though.
