    Im gona be honest with you guys i used to love this forum when it was full of really helpfull people and it still is, the only problem is that now for every one of these people theres three people whos only intention is getting there post count up. You might be wondering why i posted this in the iphone 4 forum, the reason is that the iphone 4 sub forum was buzzing when the 4 first came out, but now its really lifeless with loads of useless threads. I really think the mods should come up with some new ideas to liven up the forum. Bearing that in mind there is also loads of great people on this forum and thanks to everyone who really contributes.

    Don't mean to be off topic, but you're what OP was talking about.

    Yeah but I honestly don't care about my post count. Don't criticize me.

    Guys, this is a community forum. Its not up to the mods to breathe some life into this place, its up to everyone to make it happen. I'm not all that happy about the spammy posts I see everywhere either, but it comes with the territory unfortunately.

    If you have ideas on how to improve things, post it in the forum ideas subforum, it may well get implemented. Sitting and complaining however, isn't really productive. Various people have their little things to contribute to the forum (Appman has his 'App of the week' thing going on), we need more things like that.

    Come up with ideas, or even a contest to liven things up. I'm sure if anyone has a decent idea, bgizzle or one of the mods would be more than happy to highlight it on the front page if you want. And he's always been happy to implement user requested features for the forum, if only as a trial (like the live threads thing).

    So yeah, its up to us to make things 'better' here. Does anyone have any ideas to start with?

    There used to be members who dealt with these kind of people.

    No members need 'dealing with', most of them are new. They need to be guided and helped to understand the etiquette of the forum
