Over the next few days I will be toying with the idea of implementing a "Forced Anon" for parts of these boards. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this concept.
The main advantages I can see will be:
Content will be judged for the content, and not by the name attached to it. Less hierarchy.
Honest, unfiltered discussion.
Fairly unique for a gaming community outside of a chan board.
More content in a smaller area due to lack of avatars, signatures, etc.
Forced anon may also bring a few disadvantages:
Lack of user information if you want to get in touch with somebody personally.
Am I missing anything?
Unique random ID's for users per thread will stay in order to prevent spamming/samefagging.
Never get discouraged, just let your nerdy flourish.
If i'm not mistaken it will be the Random General board
