I mean this place has always been great. But what can we do to bring it back to its glory days.

The Facebook groups are used up. Print celebrities rule the streets and Codeblue isn’t there to put them in check. It’s literally the worst.

I hope the impending overhaul brings all the legends back. Let’s get back to art, flipping, and pho lunches.

We need to get Release Discussion threads back for each release.. that was a lotta banter for the bigger releases. Comments & bumps for Sales threads was even more fodder for the cannon :pint:

You saying you want to make Expressobeans Great Again? It's a tall order. I think the problem is the ease of allowing new users onto EB. We need to somehow limit the amount of new, unchecked users coming onto the forums. Need some kind of firewall. You don't know who might be creating alts and creating mistrust within the community market place. Also, the influx of new users also brings in more available for sale items. This is bad because it takes away from our ability to maintain current market prices. They come in and just basically dump the items for less than what we'd like to sell it for, you know? It just cheapens everything. Like if you're a new user bringing in new product, we should just add some kind of royalty fee onto their items and for all current users we should be able to sell royalty free.

glory days were well before 2012 but i will play. the first step is to get the site fully functional. in order to get there i think that only members that are financial contributors should have access to the FS section, an improved release discussion page, and sales history details. Removing comments on FS section was a big mistake that eliminated the ability for the community to police itself. Bring it back, if you dont want to comments sell it on eBay. that's what i got at 630 am before coffee
