    - iTrader/feedback system
    - Larger Avatar Size
    - Larger Avatar Upload sizes
    - More Moderators
    - No time limit for posts/thread creation/searches
    - Only registered users can see the forum
    - Porn section
    - Post count limits/requirements
    - Removal of banned members' posts
    - Removal of Viral Threads
    - Requesting ranks for yourself or for others
    - Requesting custom funranks
    - Shoutbox (chatbox)
    - Showing ban reason for banned members
    - Staff powers for non-staff members
    - Sythe iOS/Android app
    - Sythe Verified Users
    - Troll section
    - VIP forums
    - Vouch/post requirements to certain sections
    - Warez/downloads section
    - Deposits of any sort on Sythe to prevent future scams


    Explanations to follow:

    - @sythe.org E-Mail Addresses
    Unnecessary, we have PM

    - @ Tags limits removed
    Easy to abuse, the current limits (5 for regular members and 20 for staff) should suffice

    - @ everyone, @ staff, @ admins, @ global, @ sectional tags
    Easy to abuse

    - A better server or host
    Our current servers are doing fine! If there are any outages or problems, please report or read about them here

    - Ability to upload own 150x150 Avatar
    You can upload an avatar by clicking your avatar on your profile page (click your name on the top right of the page). Bigger avatar limits are a donor perk, visit the User Center to donate

    - Allowing deletion of user threads
    We don't delete posts, threads or any other content unless it's spam or a serious violation of the rules. More information regarding the right to vanish can be found here

    - Allowing selling of cracked/hacked accounts
    Fraudulently obtained accounts carry high risks for both seller and buyer. It's also highly illegal in most countries
    - Arcade
    There are already tons of sites with tons of games. If you want to play with other Sythe members visit the [unofficial] Discord server where we have mini-games such as Le Kingdoms

    - Bump button/timer
    Adding a bump button and/or timer is unnecessary, the system we have now is fine as it is

    - Changes to the signature size rules
    Ideal signature size has been determined at 650*350 pixels so that they aren't too large or too small on PC and mobile browsers

    - Invite only forum
    Not a productive way to get new members

    - iTrader/feedback system
    We have vouch threads

    - Larger Avatar Size
    Already a donor perk, visit the User Center to donate

    - Larger Avatar Upload sizes
    Already a donor perk, visit the User Center to donate

    - More Moderators
    Moderators are selected and promoted when it's needed

    - No middlemen application forum
    Official Middle Men are a good way for new members to get introduced to trading. They provide a valuable service to the site and the role of OMM is one for which an application is ideal

    - No time limit for posts/thread creation/searches
    A lower time between posts/thread creation/searches is already a donor perk, visit the User Center to donate. Completely removing the limit will add unnecessary stress to the site and will leave it vulnerable for attacks

    - Not allowing Luring on Sythe
    Been discussed many times and unless Sythe changes his mind it will stay allowed. Generally arguments in favor go along the lines of:
    1. Jagex allows it.
    2. Gets more traffic for the site.
    3. Functionally similar to botting, but instead of devaluing the currency of players by a little, one is wiping out an entire individual

    - Only registered users can see the forum
    Not a productive way to get new members

    - Porn section
    Legal liability issues and much of the audience is under 18. The upper spam forum allows for NSFW content, and the [unofficial] Discord server has a NSFW channel

    - Post count limits/requirements
    The Spam forum has a limit, and is the only section to have one. There's no real reason to limit any more sections, and it could deter new members from committing to the forum

    - Removal of banned members' posts
    We don't delete posts, threads or any other content unless it's spam or a serious violation of the rules. More information regarding the right to vanish can be found here

    - Removal of Viral Threads
    Sythe doesn't want it removed, and it's used for SEO purposes

    - Requesting ranks for yourself or for others
    The forum would be filled with requests, and it would devalue ranks

    - Shoutbox (chatbox)
    If you want to chat with other Sythe members visit the [unofficial] Discord server

    - Showing ban reason for banned members
    Extra work to display and sometimes the information is kept private. If you really want to know, you can always try to find a scam report on the individual or ask around. For many bans you can check here

    - Staff powers for non-staff members
    Staff have earned the trust not to abuse their powers and hold the responsibility to maintain the site.

    - Sythe Currency
    No reason to do this, lots of cost of time with little or no gains

    - Sythe iOS/Android app
    The website is mobile-friendly, and works on all mobile devices and browsers. Report any issues here

    - Sythe Verified Users
    Supporting Business minirank was put in place to verify your business on Sythe, and we added a mobile number field for account recovery purposes, found here

    - Troll section
    Trolling isn't welcome on Sythe outside the spam forum. A troll section doesn't make sense because you wouldn't be able to troll anyone; anyone posting there would be looking to troll

    - VIP forums
    We have a donor lounge, visit the User Center to donate

    - Vouches for GFX
    Been discussed many times and will not change unless the admins change their mind

    - Vouch/post requirements to certain sections
    The Spam forum has a postcount limit, and is the only section to have one. There's no real reason to limit any more sections, and it could deter new members from committing to the forum

    - Warez/downloads Section
    Legal issues

    -Deposits of any sort on Sythe to prevent future scams
    Legal issues
