Things are getting insanely cluttered on the forum. An influx of new users (a good thing!) are resulting in repeated questions, issues, ideas, etc. It is hard to filter out some of this noise and the important, informed, and educated ideas that can really contribute. I suggest the admin create a specific section only accessed through a paid subscription. I've seen this work with College sports forums, as those small % that pay are genuinely more invested, involved, and informed in the subject. It leads to a more productive discussion.

Being an open source project it's not right to lock out people from poor countries who cannot pay, IMO.
If you see a thread with a crappy title, then don't feed the trolls or click on it. If it's a newbie who needs help there will usually be people glad to help.

Multiple threads on similar topics is a problem, it's hard to get people to search for the existing threads.

witcoin is somewhat along the lines of being a bitcoin-powered forum.

To post you must pay first, but then when other reply part of the amount they paid goes to the original poster.  Upvotes cost as well, and similarly, part of those funds go the tue underlying content contributor -- whether it be a post or a reply.
