What would it be?
Mine would be to eliminate fanboys and manufacturer tribalism. I'm sick and tired of potentially interesting and informational threads being hijacked by people who post irrelevant information, who have some kind of bias, who want to bash a product even if they've never tried it or who feel a need to attack other people's ideas or preferences just to make them feel better about their own purchasing decisions. This behaviour is always there but it seems really bad lately.
Rant over. Time to chill

Agreed, maybe it just be a ± under the post the more negative clicks a post gets the lighter the text gets (just like the signatures). After say 10 clicks from 10 users the color stays locked (only one click applies per person )

This should also do wonders for those that continue to argue back and forth just on the context of how or what was said/not said rather then the conversation at hand.

...eliminate fanboys and manufacturer tribalism...
that would make it boring...we already have that...its called PBR and PBS....

to counter that I would have a forum set up SPECIFICALLY for reps and manufacturers to duke to out provided they come up with facts.

on another note I would like to see the "whos online" feature fixed to where it can be sorted by name or time. the last active post column does not sort the rows by time in a way that makes sense.

....

well i tried the "other sites" when RR went down and it was like wiping my butt with my left hand....just wasn't working.....I had all kinds of trouble finding $h!t and maneuvering around. I felt like RR had the better layout overall.

You obviously haven't been to that other site with terry the transmitter

I do agree with you how those things can spoil discussion but the grass isn't greener elsewhere IMO.

I wouldn't mind a personal page to document builds and tuning (mis) adventures though.

I like it better than most other sites. It's not the same out of the box default vBulletin forum software that many other sites use.

I never understood what value Avatar's add. They are a distraction as best.

Just a simple 80 x 80 px image is more than enough.

It makes it easier to follow a conversation IMO when you see the avatar change/reappear when you're scrolling down a thread.
On other forums I use I just briefly look to the left to find out who's talking but here I actually have to stop and read the username.
(yeah, yeah, lazy ass, but it breaks the flow I think)

And
this thing
needs an update.

For one it should include the name of the person you're quoting and it would be nice to be able to multiquote.

Second it would be nice to have a quote button next to a post that takes you straight to the Post Reply page with the text quoted so you don't have to go to Post Reply and then find the post (unless you copied it when you saw the post).

finally
PLEASE DON'T ALLOW PEOPLE TO QUOTE AN ENTIRE POST WITH LOTS OF PICTURES IN IT!
I typed the entire thing with shift held in, that's how mad I am .

It really pisses me off when there's a nice first post like a build log with a bajillion hi-def pics and you find the entire thing duped 7 times throughout the thread.
For gods sake people, at least remove the image links.

There, rant over
I'm sure there is more I would like to change but that's enough for now.

Dumb Thumbing doesn't apply to pinchers!

And that would be caused by the "Quote" button you're asking for.lol...

And 7 times throughout the thread?
At the other site,it would be 7 PAGES of NOTHING BUT that first post with a bajillion hi-def pics.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Under A Poster's ID it should show their helicopter, electronics brand via a tiny logo/symbol of their item's if they have them listed in their profile. That way if you don't like, or like their choice of brands you can decide if you would like to read the post, or mosey on to the next thread. I think that would make it interesting.
