[size=xx-small]Now I know this is a subjective term so opinions will be welcomed here.[/size] The term High Quality has been thrown around a couple of times recently, ranging from Dolph's questioning the term in relation to his Best In The World award to Deth and Lady Deathbane taking the "lol hq" mocking stance. I suppose to evaluate which side of the fence I'm on I'll have to attempt to understand the term. So what is quality? I suppose the first thing that comes to mind is content which encourages people to either sign up and discuss on the forum or join in with an already present discussion. An example would be the growth in the TNA subsection on this forum, we knew it would grow but would it have if everyone posted spam posts all the time? The answer is no, people sign up initially to discuss wrestling, they don't start on here to have a fun time, although I hope all members do have fun here but what made you sign up? Was it just wow I'll troll this place and have fun or to discuss wrestling? So first of all to be high quality you must be relevant to the topic at hand, we usually go off topic in some form in threads and usually do so sadly this may be effecting the precieved quality, however this leads into my second requirement for quality. Being able to get on with differing personalities and opinions, I have a banterous relationship with many people on this site where we mock each other regularly. This isn't unfriendly from my perspective as we both know nothing is to be taken to heart, although I can see how it could be negatively interperated by some people although others may become interested in this kind of forum, rather than the stricter types we all know. I really can't think of anything else for how I'd define quality, if someone posts something relevant with an opinion they'd like to express in a friendly tone they're high quality for me. Now should we all take the "Lol HQ" stance? I can't say I support that tone, I'm not a person to get deeply invested in websites in all honesty, this was my first dedicated forum experience and it's very likely I won't bother with another one as I don't enjoy forums as much as I enjoy this community and I want to see it prosper, it's got some passionate people who make it work and a userbase which deserves a great forum and it needs posts to be the best of quality to attract that, the following quotes shows how important quality is to this sites growth. You noticed how it's the quality of posters which are getting sign ups and these are people which have stayed with the site, if Crayo hadn't been so HQ back in the day I wouldn't have stayed in all honesty due to my general lack of interest in forums outside of here. Now apologies for the long post but this subject has really been annoying for me recently and I'm already expecting to be mocked for taking the internet too seriously but I'd hate to see this place sink into that LQ flaming moments like other forums have. So does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
