Who would have thought it would come to this?

I quite like the idea.

Can we have another one, please?

My comments are aimed primarily at the mods here, only because they have demonstrated more interest in the forum management experience than the typical member.

My motivation is that I've been using forums for almost 20 years, and am a forum software developer, so I tend to addictively think about hopelessly nerdy crap like this all the time.

The following posts will sketch out a few form management ideas whose goal would be to encourage high quality content, while maintaining democratic inclusiveness.

So, given he has already a lengthy thread on "moderated" content (http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...-Section), how is this thread not spam?

Just because of the assertion in bold?

Oh really? I'm actually getting into the subject myself. Worked on any notable CMSs?

You understand you would be banned from posting in all but the most lax of these "Special Guest Rooms" now due to the quality of your contributions, right? You would be making a rod for your own back. Hrmm.... perhaps it is worth implementing after all.

Except. Hrmm... you know what? What if there was more than one forum on the Internet? Hey, maybe we could start special guest forums where our most special individuals can start their own "rooms". Each could develop their own unique management style and contributors could frequent these forums according to their interests and based on the quality of the contributions and community.

Maybe those most esteemed individuals such as yourself and Gordon could show us all how it is done? Show us the quality of contributions and community you can bring about in your own special guest forums using your unique management style.

Look, forums exist as part of a spectrum of social media Bud. If you really want your own special room to play in check out these popular forum sites:
* https://www.facebook.com/
* https://twitter.com/
* http://www.weibo.com/
* http://instagram.com/
* https://www.youtube.com/
* https://www.tumblr.com/
* http://www.pinterest.com/
* http://myanimelist.net/
* http://www.eharmony.com.au/
* https://www.blogger.com/
I'm sure there are things one end of this spectrum can learn from one another, just as there are things that different forums can learn from one another. As for learning from you... well that appears to be quite another matter.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
