I would love to see this be a place where the fighters came back to regularly. I think it's tough, because stuff like Instagram and Twitter have taken ground from traditional forums due to how quickly and easily they can be accessed. Also, MMA isn't the fringe sport it once was, where this forum was literally the only way some people could network, find places to train and get any type of appreciable exposure.
I'd like to see a lot of the old members come back and to have the community feeling of this place restored. If I were Kirik, I'd have all Biden/Trump/MAGA/etc political threads moved to the Political Ground. The amount of political threads, uninspired trolling, meanness and bullshit are absurd on the OG. The UG used to be the forum people would flee from because of trolling and stupid shit. How times have changed.
I know the idea of member policing by way of vote up and vote downs has been kicked around.
There was a multi page thread about this probably a year ago that had some great suggestions, but seemingly not much implementation. Maybe it's just the limitations of the current software they're using.
I don't know. For better or worse, I love this place, it's the only forum I post on, and I'm going to stick with it and support Kirik regardless.
