I don't know if the new site you have in mind would be capable of handling these things, and I don't know how much you guys know about adding features to a forum, but I think these suggestions would make everything a little more streamlined for users:



1. A "quick log-in" module
Instead of having a separate page to log in, put a small quick log-in feature at the top of the board index, like so:

Image



2. A "like" system.
Let's keep it real, "dislikes" would be abused to hell and back, so if we have "likes" only it would be neat. It would be a cool way of showing support to each other and seeing who posts more thoughtfully as opposed to who trolls. Take this, it shows who liked it at the bottom of a post:

Image

At the top of the thread page, it also shows how many likes are in the thread, and who has received the highest amount of likes:

3. "Notifications"
Some forums have a cool feature that shows how many new likes you received and where people quoted you. This would help you go directly to replies instead of searching for people who *might* have quoted you. For example, on DebatePolitics.com, it's a simple drop down menu at the top:

Image



4. Blogs or personal pages
Since this is a movie forum, I guess users could use "blogs" for movie reviews and stuff. It doesn't have to be available for all users, we could limit it to people with, say, more than 100 posts or something like that.

Image



5. Groups
We should have a user group feature that allows users to create their own groups for different purposes. It's possible this feature would be abused, so again, maybe we can limit it by post count.

Image


I'll think of some more.
