|Subject: ||RE: LRC Without Anonymous Posts|
There's a reason why all the traditional running message boards have fallen off and LRC is still going. When you force people to put their name with what they say, people think twice before posting and discussion doesn't flow as freely. What I would like to see are some features by which the discussion can still flow but each user can customize what they see. This would be accomplished with a "hide" button. You click the hide button and the post or comment disappears to you as long as you're signed in. So when the latest 17 minute 5ker comes on to bash Chris Solinsky, I can see his crap and respond to it, or I can get rid of it and not have to see it. Another feature I would like to see is transparency in the form of a moderation/deletion log. I've seen other anonymous boards do this and it works very well. I really don't think any new features are going to happen though. This board has been just about the same since it started as far as I know. I would like to see a new board come up to challenge this one(let me know if there are any), a board that is anonymous but enables you to say who you are. I'd like to see a tradition implemented by which anonymous posts are allowed but are not given as much weight as posts from a verifiable person.
To combat message board spam (by non runners). We are making people answer a brief question before they can post on a thread that is over 20 days old.
If you answer this question you should be able to post.
