The more I think about it, the more it's just a minor problem that will likely not come up very often: if you have a like system where you can see what users liked what, it could potentially lead to flame wars or something.

That's actually a fair point that I didn't consider.

Like I said, I wouldn't use it, but I wouldn't mind it being added. Just...not as priority.

Like features always lead to popularity contests and less discussions. Keep that stuff relegated to reddit.
"It wouldn't be a true Godzilla film, if you didn't touch upon those things," says Dougherty. "Otherwise you're just making a big dumb giant monster movie. There has to be a sprinkle of it, otherwise you're not being faithful to the original intent of the series. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not a true Godzilla fan."

I've never encountered that in my years of going online.

Im part of a Blu ray forum, the AVS forums, a Dodge Durango owners forum, and several other movie sites (Dark Horizons, Cease and Desist, Latino Review which all use Disqus) and the issue of "popularity" has never come with their upvote features. The demographics of those sites might be a little different and perhaps a little older but no one cares.

Its really kind of moot anyway I dont think they will implement it

It used to not be, strangely.

Back when Vega was around, it made the user's posts and posting history completely erased. You never saw the dumb box in threads, you never saw them show up on the main topic list as a new post, it was as if the user just NEVER existed on the site. It was bliss.

Another great feature was the ability to blacklist topics, which basically did the same thing. That would be a perfect tool to have right now in the age of spoilers.


Wow interesting. #LongliveVega

Who changed it to the way it is now?


Nobody intentionally changed it. The shift to new servers(?) caused the old additions to be removed.

I like how the first reaction was, "Who changed it?" and literately not anything else.
^@above quote: PhpBB update . It basically invalidated A LOT of the old MOD files that people just

A: Refuse to update. Such as the Quoted image to URL.
B: Never got updated to begin with
C: Updated into a language that isn't English

Alternatively, there are 3rd party extension files that could be something similar but you always run the risk of getting some bad juju with those.

So when we get new offical avatars for part 2 and 3 of the anime, are human/alien characters gonna be included? Just curious, since there's some hilarious faces they make.

*Looks Around for a moment*

I think all non-kaiju film music threads should
be moved to the Media Center section with a
brand new section possibly being created for
music in general.

Just an idea.

We used to have a music section. It was pretty dead.

Oh...

I did not know that.

That's a shame.
