    What new sections would you add to the site?

    I have been "surfing" the net and finding several other forums with the same design as MR but the way they are orgainize is very strange and not that parctical.

    Now, I have seen we are writting a lot about PC's and I wonder if there should be a section juts for it or for Apple peripherals like the Air Port.

    That is just to give some ideas but: What sections would you add if there is any you would consider?

    i would love to see a more adult-oriented forum where the posts aren't filtered and topics don't have to be kid-friendly. but i know there's no way it would work, even if the technical aspects did it'd just turn into a MacPorn forum.

    ah, the joys of having a younger crowd hanging around... :rolleyes: :D

    What, MacRumorsNC17? Don't think it would happen, it defeats the purpose of the site.

    As for other topics, I'd love to see a more creative forum, but I don't know if there are enough members out to keep it going. And there are so many other sites that cater to that sort of thing.

    No kidding if you want to talk gay and porn go somewhere else this is not the place. I think we should have a large Motorola G4 section so we can all bust on how pathetic this companies chips are and the fact that apple keeps using them!

    I don't think we keep it decent for the kids. they're the dirtiest ones, often. I think that, within the bounds of this site already, there is an allowance in some sections for a certain level of crudeness that is at best very funny and at worst annoyingly off color (see the geek thread, poop thread, so on). i don't see the point of an adult section, then, as it just inevitably leads to some kind of porno discussion. and what's the point of literally using the censored words? you get the same effect from censoring them yourself. everyone knows what you mean, and if they don't, it's probably a good thing.

    I think the Community section has turned into the Sick & Twisted Pleasures section ever since eyelikeart started the *Official Poop Thread*, it's all gone downhill from there.

    who said anything about gay?

    homophobe perhaps?

    last i checked there were some "babealicious" threads started by some guys here. so because that's "straight" it's ok? pathetic :rolleyes:

    that's not to say i think things should be overly dirty. this is a mac site. and as such people will not mind if their child comes here.. they can't stop it. so why not be considerate? it is true though that the younger folks are the ones being scummy anyways. (see the above listed threads). while censorship isn't called for in my opinion, a little more respect for the site's reputation and members wouldn't hurt.


    i agree there is a good place for a creative forum. i don't think it matters too much if it's not heavily used, it would certainly allow for people to post works in progress or done stuff, and get help specifically, rather than such a general range of help topics.

    and would be a good place for things like tutorials and such.

    don't hurt me: do you just wander around the site trying to piss people off? because that's the point of about half the posts i've seen by you. howard stern kind of owns that market, and at least he's amusingly pathetic at times...

    thank you jelloshotsrule... :)

    don't get me wrong, i don't want to get really dirty and nasty... i just like to swear a lot :) those damn ***'s defy me...

    heh

    god, i hate having to be pissed off at people. just drains all my energy.

    i can't really think of much else that MR should have, subsections for each apple product might be cool but then what happens to rumors about *new* products?

    why? This seems like as good as a place as any. We talk about
    homosexuality and porn quite often in the community threads.

    I think a non-minor part of the site would be awesome. Sex
    (even homosexual sex) is not something that should be avoided,
    nor should you go out and do it, but it is great fun to talk about.

    Yes. You must smack yourself.

    I sugest a Macnn like folding stats.

    I love the buyers guide tho. :D

    edit: Oh yeah, more sexual stuff and don't make piracy taboo.

    I think that the sections are divided up pretty good. I think that it was a good idea to make a separate political sub-forum.

    Please, a political threads forum. I get angry when all the threads I can see from the main macrumors page in the community discussion involve the war on Iraq.

    yeah. but put me on the list. what's wrong with a little off-colorness? this site isn't someplace 5-year-olds go to learn about sex, and adults are mature people who can click "back" when they see something that bothers them. the younger mac enthusiasts, such as scem0, are old enough, i think, to deal with the stuff i have seen around here. i don't think Mac Forums is that bad, even with the poop thread, and i don't think that it, or stuff like it, should be deleted.

    There could also be a forum just for talking about PC stuff, for those who come here and have PCs, or those who have both, and have a question about their PC.
