The images thing is a bit unnecessary IMO, you had better make some very, VERY clear restrictions about that.
If I want to one of the girls from K-ON, who is not 18, in a bikini on my front page that is completely PG, but some people might find that offensive. KON only used because of the <18 thing but I see the same problem with legal, more busty anime chicks as well. completely PG, and if it's offensive, that's their problem.

Also I find the "entertain non-brawlers" thing to be a little bit weird. ALLisBRAWL should feel no obligation to serve the interests of people who do not wish to use what the site is for, brawl related things. But hey, extra stuff, as long as it's completely optional and doesn't clutter the front page, has no issue with me.

There's nothing wrong with trying to pander to fans of things that don't have anything to do with Smash or any series Smash features. We just need to make sure that doesn't eclipse what this site was made for.

We can still talk about anime and games that never appeared in Smash, but they can't be too overwhelming. They can't be the MAIN thing people come to this site for, because there are much better websites to cover those unrelated things.

They should be treated more like side-interests in relation to this site.

Speed-running section? lots of players seem like they really enjoy doing speed-runs of old games in their free-time. maybe it'd be useful on the front-page with a link to their stream?

users should be able to recommend blogs yep

Yeah, if you go through all those names again then they'll know who you are, if they knew you during those phases. When you come up with a new name it makes thing more difficult. Name changes is a very nice privilege. Many sites don't allow name changes at all.
I don't think it should be allowed here, either.  There isn't a reason for it.

I love this idea. Sadly, it's not that important for AiB when there's a site like SDA out there, but I completely endorse doing this.

There is an "now streaming" box that I and some other mods can edit. It isn't restricted to tournies. If there are other community-related streams going on, you're free to send those in for linking. (Advance notice helps.)

I was not aware that it wasn't restricted to tournaments. I thought that it was only for Smash things and things related to the community (like MLG even when they weren't running Brawl).

If anyone wants anything added there some time, I'm another person who can edit that.

And what do i have to do to become a moderator capable of changing the front page? (posting streams, updating the three side articles, blah blah blah)

We will be sure to give people warnings before any infractions are handed out. We don't expect members to automatically know what we see as appropriate. Clearly there's a safe zone and an unsafe zone but it's that borderline area that'll be a problem. We'll be sure to supply some examples of what is and is not appropriate.


Diem, Neal actually suggested we lower the limit down to once a year. I'm perfectly fine with that idea, but just like I told him; For the past two years at least we have been very open to name changes. I want the community to ease into the idea.

Good stuff the effort shows something all on it's own. I hope the users on here can appreciate that mods are trying to work with them instead of chronically throwing fits about every little thing. They can't appease everyone guys, but they can at least try! D:

that's true, yeah. i was just thinking like, it'd be nice to be able to have local community run streams posted right on the front page.

we def. need to work with what we got from within the community though. what i mean by that (last sentence over there <-- lol) is basically:

i'd just kinda like to be able to watch some streams from people i know are part of AIB rather than a diff community (and im not tryin to discredit SDA)

and the other thing is:

i have a feeling that people that are doing speedruns (like you) would probably enjoy having other AIB people checking them out!!
