...what would it be? It could be something that used to exist or create a new one.

My suggestions are: signatures back, being able to tag people on posts, photo albums that only your added friends can see (instead of pic threadsLOL), and sometimes I think we should be able to know who is thanking who, but maybe that would stop the thanking-fest...

Anyways, if BHM asked you, what features would you suggest for the board?

i like the idea of photo albums and seeing who thanks the post.

i'd also like polls in TTT

Signatures
Delete threads if it has 3 or more consecutive 1-stars

I think it would be nice if we could trade our points for something, but that wouldn't really be a feature. I read on the weaves section that back in the day vendors would bend their backs for bhm members, so BHM should have partnered with some vendors to give discounts in exchange for points. like 10,000 points = 10% off 

BHM would have blown up if they had done that 5-10 years ago.

Maybe a "make-me-a-mod" monthly feature, where a member with blue stars or a VIP member can be a mod for a month or a couple weeks, that way, instead of the mods who never reply to sh!t, we would have a member who already spends some time in here, to remove spammers and delete the 1-star threads as suggested by Blaquefoxx.

Also anyone who spams should be automatically banned and have their account deleted.

Block
Siggies
"Thanks" reveal
Agree with ttt poll idea


*waits for someone to come in saying "being able to post" is a feature they'd like to see*

Eta: I like the sound of that 1-star auto delete idea as well.

I'd vote for siggys if it came with   a block  option. No offense to the profundityLOL, but I just like to read clean pages  LOL. I keep most stuff blocked anyway  otherwise it page looks too busy.

I'd like to be able to see who rated the thread and how many stars. Yeah, that would be good. lol

I think they tried member mods already

I wonder if the chat worked if people would bother with TTT.....Question


Another feature I thought of was that if not to reveal to the whole forum who thanked you, that the member thanked can see who thanked them. That way is partially anonymous.



Also, BHM definitely needs a picture button to attach pics instead of using tinypic.com that way:

a)we can remove the pic whenever we want, even years later
b)it is easier to upload

I pretty much agree with everything you guys have suggested thus far. I wish BHM did more to promote forum growth. LSA has a ton of good features that I think would do well on BHM. The groan button is one of those. I also think we should be able to post confessions anonymously because Lawd I've got some stories but BHM is not about to judge me lol.

Maybe a folder to store our favorite topics, which is then saved in our control panel. First thing we see when we log in.

Sometimes I hate sifting through pages or getting distracted by other threads. I'm looking for the Cat thread but get lost in another thread and start arguing with some simpleton or watching E-fights Dead

good idea ashbash! we could have a section only for anonymous posts, that way people could discuss their problems (which probably would be love related and kinda ratchedLOL) but at least no one would have receipts later!


and lol @blaquefoxx I was thinking the same thing! we should have a folder for our favorite threads

Also there should be rating stars or thumbs up/down below the name of the member who sells or buys at Member to Member section. That way the bad sellers/buyers would have to leave BHM fast.

Also, there should always be a link to the thread proving that the sale occurred, so members wouldn't think that it is just the same member making up ratings.

right forum.blackhairmedia.com should work 

I mean really

I do want to know who thanked a particular post but thanks are helpful in drama threads and people thank during drama because it's anonymous 

Might be better if admin would do a periodic thank reveal during high drama

It's like the only moderator we have now

that's why I said (as a joke) ratings reveal would be fun . I go down the page rating every thread 5 stars when I'm in a good mood, unless it's something crazy.  My reasons would be boring, but more than likely people already know that so nobody would ask me why.

lol… its funny that i, who should ignore more.. probably wouldnt actually use the feature and ignore (maybe 1). there may be ppl that bother me but i dont always comment… scrolling by their avi is super easy. Either that or sometimes i may not care for someone.. but i dont mind reading their take on something.. or they have an interesting story every now and then. or there will be gaps and ill be confused.. 

 the ones who are supposedly good at ignoring (really… youre not for some of yall.. you just try to act like it and get out your feelings in other ways) would be ignoring a lot and obviously pretty bothered.. 
interesante.

I think thanks and ratings should remain private to keep the drama down .
Bring back signatures.
Please stop spamming in the weave forum .
Allow members to type [Name Removed by Request of Vendor]iq /Janice name . .
 
Improve the children hair care forum .
Banned people with 30 usernames for life .
Finally give me my free hat and shirt from the meet up .
Offer hair contest .
Bring back the picture function .
Only allow active members to sell hair .
Bring back Mod 5 if she left .

Ignore buttons? But a thread will end up not making sense to you if the ignored is actively posting on a thread and people are replying to them.


Posted By: sexyandfamous

Longer profile options where you can post your favorite hair care products, mascara, perfume etc. That way, to the ones who are on the hair care section, people can just checked out your profile instead of you replying what you use on your hair for the 10000th time.

that would be interesting.  Are people gonna cuss people that don't even really post because they thanked somebody? I think some of these thanks come from lurkers just to instigate sh*t.  Gone cuss somebody out in PM cause they don't post.LOL

The amounts of people getting in their feelings because of the thanks reveal would be epic.LOL

sometimes i'll thanks posts rather than comment because I don't want the argument tbh.  sometimes folks just don't want to debate or argue.  i tend to quote if I have something to add.
