Lots of discussion was had about adding a What’s Hot (Tm) feature to SA. In the interim we offer this thread.

Post threads here that you think are cool, good, interesting, and/or funny. These can be within GBS, but really the point is to be across our entire forums.

What do I need to do?
* post a link to the thread
* give a short synopsis of the content (no dissertation required, thanks)
* why it’s cool

What not to do?
* no dumping on suggestions (probation highly likely)
* besides “whoa that’s a good thread” type comments, take the discussion to that thread as they will appreciate it more
* threads must be on SA
* don’t post about closed/gassed threads lol
* take Complaints about the forums and features to Qqcs
* don’t post your own threads

TOS
* this random rule list may be updated at anytime in the future and by posting itt you expressly accept the opportunity to be unjustly probated for any reason by Burt or any other SA administration

There's a good thread in BYOB about the middle school version of SCP. Never-Tardy Travis scared the living gently caress out of me when I was in junior high, and he terrifies me now.

Support BYOB it is a funny, good, and pure place.

BYOB is a good idea factory that is chronically understaffed, and this thread could use some good content because its a neat concept.

It takes an amount of effort from OP to make the images translated from Japanede which is essentially a very dull story so far but people, myself included, are pretty invested in. Add to it that the OPs posts are as slow are the story which really brings the thread alive. On more than one occasion I've thought that the thread was dead but OP keeps reeling us back in with a new post every few weeks or months.
