Mountainbuzz is just fine the exact way it is.

So having a "popular" thread with no new posts on the top of the list due to reddit-style upvotes doesn't do much for me from a user perspective. I'm not sure how others use the site though.
Agree. I use the "view w/o forums" link and look at what's new and interesting to me.

I like the idea of upvotes or downvotes within threads on specific comments/posts, but I don't think that should have anything to do with what threads stay on the front page and which ones go away. Sounds like it could get way too complicated. What's relevant and interesting to you may or may not be relevant or interesting to me. Sure, I might check out the Poudre Gnarrows Front Ranger shit talking for a minute, get a good giggle, but hell we all know I'm not going to race so that thread is pretty irrelevant to me. I might pop on over to razz the rafters about their gear dilemmas, get another good giggle... but probably don't need that particular thread to stay at the top of the list. However the thread about the slowly dying kayaking industry is rather interesting to me, and look, it's at the top of the page...

It's a good day to be a duck....
