Have you ever thought of adding a Live Chat function?
Not that I'd personally use it, but I've seen boards of this style that had that feature. Perhaps it would give people a chance that normally wouldn't talk to each other, have a chance to socialize.
I think that sometimes a lot of things get taken out of context or escalated due to miscommunications and such. It's not easy trying to decipher what someone means or what they ACTUALLY mean.
I understand that this is a GSD forum, but there would be no need for this if the intent wasn't communication. Of course I'm a nobody, but there's definitely a "lack luster" vibe that really has had a hard time passing in the last few months. Perhaps if there was a way for people to talk real time, maybe it would lessen a lot of the tension that seems to be mounting day by day.
