We should have specific FORUM MODERATORS so that we can pay attention more to that as the other moderators look at the comments. I'm such a genius

Moderators aren't machines. That would be a terrible idea.

We should also have profile moderators, because we don't trust the forum moderators enough to be global moderators anyway. They do such a great job that we should split them up into sections. Call it tough love! :D

I am not sure if anyone asked this, but I looked throought the thread.  Will you archive the old forums?

An archive would be good.

On this matter, I take the opposite viewpoint. Aside from a couple of the forums (Game Walkthroughs and Custom Programming for example,) much of the rest of the forums are absolute drivel, and it's patently obvious from some of the new entries that people don't read them now, so why would they bother in the future.

Sure, keep the FAQ entries, and the other stickies, but consign the rest to the great bitbucket in the sky. After all, who's going to bother reading What's your favorite xxxx? or What's your worst yyyy? of which there are a myriad of such threads in The Tavern?

That doesn't look relevant.

Custom Programming

I think you were looking for Programming Help there.

I see the logic there. After all, FAQs and stickies are important, but not the "what's your favorite" type threads.

Instead of a forum search, and archive search.

Better yet, instead of having a preview button (although it would be nice as previously mentioned to make sure pictures worked) you could add an edit button to edit one of your posts. On other forums many times I feel I need to fix, rephrase, or add something to my post but I am unable to. An example is:

It would show the recent treads you posted in.

And in another post:

treads
Oops, I mean thread.

The way I see it users are finding themselves in a pickle where they don't want to spam, but they want to help contribute further by editing a post.

This next question is kind of out of this world and probably won't happen, even if it does (which it won't) it will probably happen post-v3 launch.
Could you guys kind of have like an Armor Games.....Game? That kind of sticks to the whole theme. What I mean is leaning towards a halosphere-esque thing. Halosphere is basically a game based on a Halo forum called Halocharts:http://halocharts.com/
Halosphere: http://halocharts.com/sphere.php
Another idea would be able to have like groups?...I know it's hard for me to explain this but it's to have like a group (a user can join as many as wanted) with a moderator who can have settings like to just let someone join if requested or to make the moderator allow or unallow and the group could have their own little subforum restricted to group members? An example would be a group for people who are programmers, or for people who make music, or maybe for people who like a specific author's work. The possibilites are endless.

The idea I keep forgetting and then remember while typing this is to have signatures. I don't really think I can elaborate on that other than to say there should be set rules and moderators can ban a user for profane or signatures that break regulations
