    So the EOF has basically been shit since NeoSupaMario joined for a while now and members rarely post here anyone due to due the lack of humor in many of the threads. We must generate some ideas that we as a community can implement that will bring back the EOF to its former glory. We mustn't let such a critical component to GBATemp's community be overtaken by prowler haters, bronies, fanboys, AlanJohn, weeboos, lame petitions to ban or unban specific members, etc.

    I leave you with this irrelevant quote:

    "It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it."

    ERMAHGERSH! We've been through this how many times now? Seriously, threads about trying to save the EOF are also one of the crap ideas that are flooding and ruining the EOF.

    Why do you guys feel the EoF HAS to be funny. No where here does it say it was created to be funny, in fact, I'm pretty sure it was made to prevent the stupidity stored here from spreading and infecting the whole site.

    I already came up with the solution in another thread. We nuke close the EoF for a little while and all the people who use the EoF as their own shit dumping grounds will be forced to learn to use the other areas of the forum. They will either assimilate and become normal members, or they will shit on the rest of the forum and be banned faster then a spambot posting rom links.

    I never stated that was its reason for being created. As you say, the Edge of the Forum was originally created as a cess pool to confine the content too shitty for themajority of the forum. Later, as the community grew, the focus shifted to providing more humorous content instead of this board being akin to /b/ on 4chan.

    The people who who go around being cynical assholes and posting no everywhere are shitting it up.

    Nope
    Lock the whole EOF and don't unlock it until AJ is banned or if its 11-sept-2014, when we remember GBAtemp terrorists bombed the EOF a few years ago

    Its simple, theres only a small single digit number of people who cry and bitch about the EoF and constantly blame other people without considering themselves
    Remove them forever.
    Then suddenly noone will complain, the EoF will be a better place and everyones happy.

    I suggest paying me money to make up funny threads in the EoF.

    As one of the best and funniest posters on this site, I should have enough to turn the EoF from complete shit to plain old mediocrity.
