    Don't know if this has been suggested yet (haven't bothered reading every post).
    But, I would like to see a 'Debate' sub-forum. Simple one on one, or two on two debates, with a moderator (moderating) and selected people capable of voting. (Debates would be structured, and remain archived in the sub-forum.)

    I think it would add alot to the forums, and also reduce unneccesary flames and posts being made.

    i think that there should be more info on novels like "looking for alibrandi" and maybe a profile page where you can decorate it how you like.

    A more organised resources sections? The amount of resources are constantly growing, and its getting more and more chaotic in there.

    ^ I agree, and a faster server.

    Maybe for the resource sections, add a separate column on the notes page to tell us how many downloads have been made on a specific set of resource.

    1. Faster server(s), yes, either through multiple servers or an upgrade of the current box. If looking for a cheaper solution, you can use load balancers, PHP op cachers, accelerators, anything. Perhaps MySQL should be updated from 4.0.25 to the generally available release (currently 5.0.45), as well as vBulltin (from 3.5.3 to the currently latest version, 3.8.6) - there may have been some performance optimizations, not to mention additional/enhanced features. I assumed this is hosted on a dedicated server.

    [s]2. An official IRC channel.[/s] I just double-checked before pressing "Post". I didn't realise the channel on austnet.org was the official channel.

    PS: What are the specs of the webserver? Why is an Australian board being hosted on a US webserver?

    I'm pretty sure they know these things, just they're too busy.

    Just to clarify, we were kind of dispwned a little while ago, so as it stands there's no "official" IRC channel. Feel free to drop by though all the same.

    Why exactly do we have that feature anyway?

    I'd also like to suggest a bit of pruning. I hate reading a thread and then realising that someone's bumped it from 2005.

    suggestion for posts

    could we implement a 'score' system for posts ala slashdot or youtube style where good insightful/interesting/informative comments are modded up by general public

    That kind of thing had already implemented before, and because of the abuse of it it was scrapped

    Re: What would you like to see on BOS 2008?

    I made a suggestion[http://community.boredofstudies.org/....php?t=185367] for a modding system to exist with posts a la scores for comments in slashdot or youtube. Apparently this was once implemented, and did work technically, but failed on the social forum "because of abuse". Can anyone elaborate on this i.e what happened?

    I think its a good idea, it is an invaluable way to sort out the 'gems' i.e. insightful/informative/interesting posts from the background noise ('lol's and mindless offtopic jokes). Whats the disadvantage.. or is it that this is too ambitious for an immature forum like BoS?

    Re: suggestion for posts

    This kind of system was called the "Reputation" system
    Originally it was to reward those who were helpful and productive and it still did happen for a bit, but then it got to the stage where it was for 'popularity' purposes. And people just kept repping other people/friends just for the sake of getting their rep points high, and eventually the admins/mods felt it had no more use other than to get members' rep points high and so it was removed from the site

    That's basically the gist of what happened

    Other methods I think have been suggested before where the moderators rep helpful members but I think that was disregarded as well

    Re: What would you like to see on BOS 2008?

    I dont know if this has been mentioned, but could it be possible to provide more support for university students?

    I am thinking in terms of resources such as submitted course summaries and papers people are willing to upload. This isnt really to help me seen as i finish uni in a few weeks, but if basically what you have the HSC like summaries of each course, maybe you could split up areas like faculty>school and then people submit stuff into that

    e.g say i upload my course summary for advanced cognition [ a psych course] to find it you would go science> psychology> list of documents, one of which is mine

    Of course plagarism isnt supported by anyone and if this was available whilst i was studying those courses i would never risk submitting an assignment i downloaded, but it would have been good to see how someone else tackled a problem.

    just an idea


    Just because you are paranoid doesnt mean they arent after you
