    Reputation system idea

    You could have borderlands 1 and 2 trivia questions once a day that will award the first person to answer it correctly 1-5 rep points.

    I like all 3 of the suggestions btw

    I like the suggestions above, I am willing to help out with anything. I would be willing to make a donation or buy microsoft points (or what ever needed with other platforms) for any type of competitive event or reward for certain forum challenge.

    Same here, i will help out in anyway, whether it be donations, buying prize rewards, or just being the bad cop of the forum.

    This isn't needed, but when I first logged on the Forum, I had a hard time navigating--Meaning it took me a few minutes to scroll down to find where to get to the 'forum' part of the forum. I'd consider putting that on top.

    Thanks for the feedback, I think you're right. Originally it was traditional for forums to have Announcements and Feedback forums on top with the actual content forums beneath it. But I do rather enjoy the format you suggested.

    I'll disagree and say that I like the format the way it is. I think it's best to have that important stuff at the top. It's only three sections, it can't take that long to scroll down...

    Also it is implied that there is no proper noun on my name, just shadow_FIX. ;)

    EDIT: Don't forget about my idea with the spam control, to keep the community from seeing it.

    Every single spammer that has registered is using an IP that is already in spamblocker databases. All it takes is 20 seconds to install the plugin and they can no longer create accounts.

    I love the idea for a reputation system, but I would like to add that I think if it were to be implemented, the option to give negative reputation should be disabled. Giving negative reputation could be abused.

    I would also like to add that maybe a sub-forum could be created in the "General Talk" section for forum games -- just to keep the games all in one place.

    I don't know if its been suggested yet but I'd like to see separate sections for class discussions and builds. I know there is a section for builds but I would like to see a structure to discuss classes similar to the gearbox site. I participate in their site as well but I like this community more and there is probably a lot of good ideas out there.

    Something I just thought of...you know the BL2 logos at the left side of each section? I think it would be good to have two versions of it: one to show if new posts have been added since you logged in last, and another to show that nothing new has been posted (maybe this could be grayed out or something).

    Just an idea, a visual cue like that makes a big difference for me at least.

    I personally like the new posts button at the top. Good idea though, We'll look into it.
