Just a thought, VIP isn't a huge deal to me because I know they do good work now but I'd just like some input from the community on the matter.
who are these people? are you thinking of any specific?

like havey said, the VIP section has been very active and productive lately, believe me

I agree with you my dude. I mean I don't want this to start any type of craziness, because we both know how these kind of threads can be derailed.

If the community thinks that some people deserve in there then I am totally cool with hearing whatever, you know how I am.

But I promise you, those dudes in the VIP section (like the man above my post) is working extremely hard.

not really anyone specific, I am just stating characteristics I think our VIP members should possess, whether it's new VIP members, or current ones. I can't see the VIP section, honestly, but I trust you guys when you say work is getting done, and again, this is one of the bottom of the list issues that needs to be examined. I am just writing down my thoughts and things we can go over while in this transitional period.

what havey said is exactly what I am looking for in this thread, I offered a topic or opinion on something, I want you guys to offer your thoughts and ideas about the topic, as well as discuss your own ideas/opinions. let's air it all out

this is what I like to hear. I brought a topic with my opinion, you offered yours, and now I feel better about this certain topic. everything is worth taking a look at at least, imo, but I trust you when you say these things about VIP, and thank you for your input

Ehh I could do more with VIP, I'd like to help out more but i'm not really sure what to do I'd definitely be down for helping to run the youtube channel or twitter account but no body really knows the password to it. I think that the overwhelming majority of VIPs are pretty dedicated to helping out but don't really no where to start. Also the new additions are all really top tier guys in terms of commitment to the site: ohem, st0bs off the top of my head.

In terms of the rules I wouldn't really agree I think people have kind of calmed down a little bit. I definitely don't like some of the nastiness/namecalling that some of the older members throw down but it's manageable with the ignore list. More rules will just cause more tension imo.

I would say top priority is get the site looking nicer with banners and stuff like you stated. Just making it more aesthetically appealing and user friendly. I remember when I started off here I had no clue how to make heads or tails of it. Hmm, I actually just thought of something, would be cool for newbies if we had a thread like Ten Things to Know About THF. (How to upload an avatar and sig, how to post images, youtube videos links, subscribing to threads, checking user cp awarding rep, creating threads). I mean I don't think it's necessary to make now but around November it might be nice to have something like that.

Overall the thing that is going to make new members come here and stay is just being welcoming. Just be patient and realize that some of the new people are going to be young ins, not quite as mature,.

Grif, I think that idea is solid. Having a thread that is basically...

"A New Members Guidebook to THF"

Or something like that.

We can add every helpful thread plus add some other useful info in there so members don't feel so lost.

very good idea. when I got here it took me forever to learn lingo like threads, mods, stuff like that, as well as how to navigate the forum and use all of the tools and applications available to me. it is a tremendous idea to have that kind of thread pop up for new members. it can hold viable information so that they can hit the ground running, such as what sections to visit for certain topics, who to contact for help in certain areas, how to select and add an avatar and signature, stuff like that. good idea, I will add this to the OP to be expanded on later

Yeah I think the others ones were really all over the place and really antiquated. I don't mind doing it after I finish work tonight, probably post a rough draft in VIP thread and would be nice if someone could sticky it somewhere relevant.

Sounds good dude, definitely a solid idea. I'll post a more in depth post later this evening as to some things I think could really help improve the site before the launch.
