    I believe the threads you are referring to are in the politics forum, which is part of the off topic forum...let me know if you would like me to remove you from that by either emailing or sending me a pm

    The threads that I am talking about are being posted in the General Green Industry Forum. These threads have nothing to do with this industry. They are also being posted in the General Green Industry Forum because unlike the other forums available on this site the General Green Industry Forum is most likely the most viewed and replied to. Here is a suggestion.

    If anyone wants to post a thread on this site make sure that the post fits the Forum it
    pertains to only. If I choose to comment or create a thread in the Off Topic or Political or Religious Forums that is where it I would expect to see and read in order to respond. It seems that there are members willing to post threads where ever they choose for the response level needed. I believe this is counter productive for this forum.
    I believe if members would only create threads in the Forums they are actually intended for this issue would be resolved. If the members were to continue to create threads in forums where the title and content did not match these forums, that member should have his or her threads automatically redirected to the correct forum in the future.

    Get rid of the pop ups

    Add a "like" button

    Add a [OP] next to the OP's user name so we know who started the thread when we are serval pages into the thread…they have this feature on other forums

    Make it easier to post the same pictures and documents in multiple threads…some things a relevant in more than one thread

    Add a "Pricing" forum so we can have all the "What should I charge?" threads in one spot…maybe a few people will read some of the older threads and learn a few things

    Add a "Marketing & Advertising" forum…this is a huge topic of conversation and deserves its own forum

    thanks again for some of the suggestions/recommendations, we appreciate it...I will look into some of those and see what/if we can add, change, etc. and when, if possible, we are able to implement any of those suggestions

    Ad blocker app on Google chrome works wonders :) it removes the adds on the sides too which I normally like to read. I end up turning off ad blocker on this site though because I actually like them.

    Decrease the minimum number of characters needed for making posts…10 characters is way too many.

    Sometimes we might want to answer with…

    Yes
    No
    Good idea
    Nice
    any number that is less than 10,000,000
