    I think there should be a suggestion thread where posters can make suggestions to try and better the forum. If the mods/admins are okay with it, I guess this can be the official suggestion thread.

    Now, for the first suggestion, I think this forum should have some sort of no holds bar thread in the Kingdom section. This thread, as I said, should be no holds bar. Basically, anything goes. If you have a disagreement with someone, instead of just pussy footing around the subject because you're scared you're going to break the rules, you can just take it to this no holds bar, anything goes thread. In a nutshell, it's for heated discussions that others may not want to see. If you don't want to see any heated discussions or disagreements, it's simple, just don't come to the thread, though I'm sure there would be a few posters around here that would welcome a thread like this where you don't have to hold back and you can show your true colours if you want to put it that way.

    I don't think this would cause any problems to the board, I actually think it would better the board as there would be less arguments, if any arguments in the other forums. It would allow the other threads to stay on topic and not get over run by a heated discussion or two. This would also lead to less work for the mods/admins and less threads that get locked/deleted.

    I'll put it this way, it's just one thread amongst hundreds of threads, and if you don't like it, don't view it.

    If the mods/admins are still unsure about a thread like this, we could simply do a poll or something and just let the posters vote.

    I just want to better this board. :love:

    Sorry, but if you want to have arguments with others, you do it elsewhere.

    So your saying a thread to just unleash on others? Pretty much that's what it would turn to be.

    I don't think so. Sure start a poll, a thread to just be bagged :lol:

    As I said, we try and reduce cyber abuse, but your suggesting it?

    Odd... wonder what others think.

    Pros - Would allow people to vent frustration/anger, etc.
    Would take arguments out of other threads.

    Cons - People would argue just for the sake of arguing rather than using this to solve problems in other threads.
    People would leave the forum in their droves and those who use the "no-holds barred" thread would be left posting on their own or without a forum.

    On the whole, bad idea.

    some forums have a 'fight club'

    but I guess the idea isn't popular here

    I don't mind it though

    Working out differences yes. But personal insults, no. Which is what it would turn out to be like.

    The Fight Club on another forum is abit of a joke. And it works more because of the variety of club members but still members just cop cyber abuse because of the comments they make. Pretty Low if you ask me.

    Here it's a one team forum, the least we want is banter. I could recomend forums to join if you want to rough each other up.

    LeagueLoaded is one.

    Yep, which is why this suggestion would be pretty silly.
