Appreciate your service.
Pornhub has been around longer than BD?

Just saw the scroll up and down :D so when going back a page it's easy to start at the bottom and not the top. To be in chronological order

It's a great forum as is. Let it all fly, people can easily ignore someone or choose to avoid topics as they like.IE change the fucking channel.


I would love to see a dislike option come back and can you please add an area under my avatar for my PRONOUN. It's so hard explaining to everyone I take fishing what I mean by hold my rod. Maybe you could add a wokeness meter while you're at it.
Also, we need the new improved BOTD (Bidens Ongoing Terminal Dimensia) forum. Need to track his decline.

Carry on.

    Probably an easy way that I'm too dumb to figure out.

    But, I have to push a lot of buttons to get to new posts on my phone.

    I need to filter out pics of Alis mug too.

    on mobile?
    Infinite scrolling would be cool on mobile. I am sure you know what that is but if not basically there is no pagination and with ajax it adds the next pages content allowing you to infinitely scroll through the pages.

    yeah I’ve wanted infinite scroll forever (maybe it’s possible in app). The software just wasn’t there to support it. This new version makes a lot possible.

    Before we go and do major updates / graphic changes, etc I need some feedback.
    Feel free to DM/PM/Email me direct if you don't want to put it in public. [email protected]

    Politics policy? Back to no politics? My problem with them is they divide and that's not what fishing or hunting is about. But every other platform allows it worse than we do. Do I keep the traffic? Make a new forum just for politics that doesn't show up in new posts unless you are subscribed to it?

    Can't run and hide from politics as a fishing forum.

    Posting - How can we make it easier?

    It's already easy, it's the bugs and gremlins that sometimes pop up after updates.

    What would entice a new member to post? Contests?

    Honestly, give them a thumbs up or chime in with a reply for any good contributions ( reports, advice, etc ) they make to this "community".

    Contests are gimmicks but fun if ran right. Hate the sign up for emails ones and share on social media ones but I do understand their intentions of doing so.


    Do you guys think you would enjoy a points program? Posting points, viral points, etc. Get enough points for free BD hats or shirts.

    Bots will eventually win this. A few will make it a "career".

    Do you enjoy getting "likes" on your posts?

    I take notes...

    We will have a mobile app coming out later this year. That's a whole other discussion but for the time being what can be fixed or changed with the current mobile layout?

    Any quirks for me using mobile have been fixed.

    Are you able to find the sections and posts you are looking for? Do we need to figure out a better way to list the forum sections?

    Forums List could use an overhaul...

    Moving jigging and popping to Fishing Related made sense as it's more "tackle and techniques" oriented. Could expand on it and add iron, plastics, terminal tackle, LOBSTER FORUM, kite, live bait, etc... that should also open up more opportunities to learn more or refine skills which helps builds interest in the sport. Also open opportunities for more sponsorships. To add to that it's cool when sub-forum's sponsors have staff that get involved in discussions.

    Other sub-forums like spear, jetski, surf, kayak, etc could also be moved to Fishing Related. It should shift focus more into a techniques and equipment advice based sub-forum which members can build off of. Then of course the reports will be shared in the Fishing Reports sub-forums based on their appropiate location.


    OK this is where we are so far. Don't stop the discussion... We are taking notes.

    • Make it easier to find the button to start a thread. Post thread button is way right top away from all the threads. Make it easier to find, multiple places.
    Cool.
    • Add Political forum, disable from New posts
    Thanks for that. Keeps the clicks and isolates the debauchery.
    • Add points system with badges and prizes (User Enable/Disable settings available)
    Yay participation trophies!
    • More contests giving away reels and gear
    Make sure to thank the sponsors.
    • Page Selection at top of thread as well as bottom
    Cool.
    • Add Ignore Forum, Ignore Post, Ignore Person and make it easily turned on/off
    Cool.
    • Add More Like Reactions (like, love, haha, wow, sad, rainbow, unicorn, Beiber, thumbs down)
    Needs the BD salute.
    • Disable PM/DM's and Starting Classified Ads until reputation is built
    Cool.
    • Rewrite and prominently display forum rules
    A Bloodydecks Commandments/Constitution? Only if it's written in double feature font!
    • Better sorting searches on forum
    Yes.
    • Pay for no ads
    Cool
    • BOTD
    Yes, also archive all of saluki's contributions in one post and pin that shit.

    I’ve made the mistake of chipping in my two cents into a politics post and getting a whole lot of shitcoin back.
    But there is a legit question, when an issue such as AB3030 comes up, how is that discussed here, or is that not allowed?
    I feel like the box should be open and civil so we can talk about things like AB3030, but I don’t know how to actually make that happen?
    Best of luck to you figuring that one out Jason, it is a pickle with a lot of juice.

    The political stuff is often a bit mean spirited or repetitious but sometimes borders on absolutely hilarious so sure, keep it in somewhere. I'm pretty ignorant about a lot of issues so I rarely dare to weigh in amongst the wolves. However, I'm working on a new insult to trot out at an appropriate opportunity when I can't think of a good argument. Let's give it a whirl:

    Me: "You know what? You should probably just take up yoga!"

    Opponent: "WTF! Why would I want to do that?"

    Me: "Eventually you'll become a lot more supple. Then you can go blow yourself!"

    OK, maybe not as clever as the rooster-lolllipop meme. But would it earn a demerit from the moderators?

    Good fishin'!

    I bet you think that one is pretty funny. If it was possible every man would do that.
