A Quiet Board!

A place to hang out and chat about astronomy

I think the closure of the Non Astro Chat forum, made a few people leave. Things would get out of hand in there with personal attacks and snide remarks.
Which was a great shame because some of the debates on there were great and civil.

Could the quietness of the Board be attributed to these failures:

1. The posts don't seem to have numbers on them, like post #17 or whatever. This makes it hard to reply to a specific post.

2. The posts don't have "kudos", or reputation points, attached to them. Everyone likes to have their post appreciated, when it's worthy.

I'd especially recommend the introduction of "kudos" points. They gratify the recipient, and provide an incentive to post again.

I agree! A "like" button would be a big improvement.
