Maybe this has already been suggested, but how about an auto slide show on the home page, perhaps similar to the one on Mountain Project? It's nice to just watch some nice images roll by when you have a few minutes to kill...

Supertopo has some fantastic discussions in the forums, lost within a sea of junk.

Anything that helps to push down the junk or highlight the better posts would be of great value.

For example, some sites (e.g., Amazon, Engadget) use a similar scheme where readers can vote "+1" for posts that they feel bring value. Posts and threads with higher scores somehow get highlighted.

Other sites have a button "Flag as inappropriate" or a "-1" button. Once enough people have flagged the post negatively, it is minimized or eliminated.

A fancier version associates over time a score to users based on the feedback received. New posts from that person start off with a bias.

More political content


I'd be willing to write a weekly column with a seperate tab.

A Vimeo embedded option within the youtube video button... shouldn't be too hard just a tiny modification in the code.

I would also like to be able to have a favorites list which i can add threads to from the main forum list.

We might want to consider whether bombing other persons threads is appropriate and permissible on ST. So many times a bunch of people are discussing something of interest to them and along comes some dysphoric turkey who has not gotten anything in 5 years with an axe to grind. He starts bombing threads and the people wanted to talk with one another have to work around him. Is there a way to automatically deactivate someone who posts huge numbers of graphically intense images in rapid succession using up forum bandwidth and interrupting conversations ongoing between other people?

I'd like to see a feature were you could favorite topics posted in the forum , any way to put a star to them to rate them would be cool too.
