Without naming other boards by name or URL, what are some of your favourite and least favourite features of other boards?

We want to build a first rate community forum here at BT and I'd like to ask how we can replicate success and avoid failed ideas.

Thoughts?

So far, I think you and Craig are achieving the right balance on allowing discussion to grow, and gently reminding people to stay on topic - I admit that I'm horrible for going off on tangets.

I've yet to see any offensive posts, and the only threads that have been locked were for good reason - so I'm happy with the path you're currently on.

What can anonymous users do here? I think, in order to suck them into signing up, you should allow some actions without having an account. Maybe they could vote in polls but not post anything. Something to get them interested an participating, but leave them wanting more.

A test forum might be a nice idea.

Also I think as the forum grows you might want to consider the use of more subforums for easier navigation.

Example: Canadian politics could be divided by federal vs provincial subforums (1 for each province perhaps?)

This should be easier once you get a look at the types and volumes of posts over a period of time, and remember it is possible to have too many forums/subforums as well.


Edit: Late addition to post.

Some kind of calender of events of interest might also be a nice feature, but because everything in politics is important to someone, updating a calender might be a full time job.
