  My personal opinion is the format is largely fine. I modded for years on a v
bulletin based board and the only real feature I miss is editing ability.


What I noticed is wholesome posts are largely ignored here. People posting mocs
or collections are almost completely ignored while drama posts create long chains
of comments


I remember a regular member posting a very nice collection photo because they
were excited about finishing or near finishing it iirc. I think it got two replies...

On Reddit, that same post would have got hundreds of positive replies.



I know personally I've had a few cool post ideas, but I know if it's
not negative or dramatic they will only be met with crickets.


Again, just my opinion

The difference in size is probably why there could be hundreds of positive comments
and upvotes while being met with silence here. Here there cannot be more than
a couple hundred people looking at the BL forum for any significant amount of
time from day to day. The issue in my opinion is that there isn't enough
interest to get more people using the forum but the other problem is that if
more people were to use the forum it would become harder to use as posts would
get buried that much faster.

On the other hand, 200 comments of “Good!” and “+1” aren’t fun to read either



I also believe that, as there are other forums that specialize in that sort of
posts, by comparison and by BL’s very nature, BL’s forum will always seem more
oriented towards selling/buying or cataloguing than MOCing or other news.

  Hello there, thank you for replying.

However I wanted to know if there's a way of, when clicking on a thread,
displaying the entire thread? There's an additional click on the "Entire
thread on one page" link every time I want to read a thread.

To rephrase, I want to open the foruns in "Compact" mode (done), but open the
threads in "Entire thread on one page". Is it possible?

You can click on the text bubble icon in front of the topic title to display
the entire thread on one page.

Cheers, that helped !
