    I still cant figure out what was bad with 2.0 since there was also the activity tab and the all tab so it wasnt just sections at all.
    And besides the home page it felt smoother to use tbh.
    I know on paper it may seem like 3.0 is a step forward but I doubt that the average user would care about technical stuff at all.

    picking back up on this again...

    plus / vets / reward system


    @joeyp363 this is super dope. how maintainable is this??
    ...and i also kinda really like this one, which will be a segue into the next topic as well:


    ...i'm totally down to give the plus or a reward system a go again. some initial thoughts of how this could work, though i have no idea off-hand if i could make the technicalities of #1 work:
    1. could have a *star* below the username, if you have the most posts in X area... basically: if you have the most posts or most threads (prolly do both, so 2 per area) in a sxn (ex: creative) or a sub-sxn (ex: drake), or even *some* prefixes (ex: politics, nba, nfl, etc.) then you'd have an indicator of being the top in that category
      1. you'd also automatically have access to the plus sxn for this
    2. social media runners (more on this below)
    3. highest poster from the last 3 months

    could also do something to identify "streaks":
    1. post at least once a day for X days, get a fire icon indicator

    ...any other thoughts?

    i'm curious: is being in a plus sxn & an icon/indicator enough by itself? or what kind of benefits would we need inside that plus sxn? i can't give out $$ because i'm legitimately not making any on this site rn

    targeting/marketing


    i have admin rights to 3 social media accounts rn:
    1. twitter
      1. https://twitter.com/sxn80
    2. facebook: sxn80
      1. https://www.facebook.com/sxneighty/
    3. facebook: drake sxn
      1. https://www.facebook.com/DrakeSXN/

    the others have all been taken down, are in @Mike Tyson 's name (haven't been able to get ahold of him for past 8 months...hope he's alright), or have been ran into the ground (@Rick wtf w/ that instagram account?)

    i'm going to create a new insta account. i'll need people to take the reins on running each of them. holla if you want to be involved and i'll get you access. we'll need active participants rn. per above, being active/productive on these will get ya into the Plus group once i'm able to get that going

    any other social media / promotion thoughts?

    I think streaks/identifying top prefix/sxn posters is a good idea.

    For plus members we should bring back the plus subsection.

    little things like this give people incentive to post

    Ιm down to help for that IG account I think its easy to fit around my schedule.

    I was thinking that it could also work for promotion if we had some members that could focus on
    reviewing new music since we already have nice scouters for new music like @Sav Stanfield lol.

    Then posting the reviews on social maybe it could bring some new people esp if the most of the reviews are for newer artists etc.

    The sxn was a dead zone due to there not being many perks to being in there...i think once we killed the hidden sxn for that reason, we decided to pull the plug on the entire thing.

    ...without any gimmicks (I don’t want plus to have the ability to ban someone or anything like that), the biggest thing to figure out is what benefits there will be within the sxn itself. An outside indicator is a cool recognition, but inside the forum is where I struggle.

    The plus section was pretty active for awhile though...plus people would post funny stories and stuff and Charlie would upload a bunch of music for people. It had its perks for sure

    Leaks, links and stuff for starters?

    Maybe a weekly thing like the quizzes Koolo used to do with a giftcard or something.
    I really enjoyed those back in the day even if I'm not good at it lol
