      Most things, things need to be tighter in terms of trolls, initiate a rule where new members can't post in chat until they have reached 100 posts in moderated forums like relationships etc so that way they can't spam to get 100 posts. The mobile version is slow and laggy, the servers are overloaded and I'm guessing it's due a high concentrated volume of people rushing to post at once. Then there is this new thing where there is a grey box jumping up and down as you scroll (with or without ad blocker ) and it is quite annoying. The search function is flawed, sometimes you can't search things or it will say nothing matches when searching a particular thread. Threads should be locked after a year to maintain relevancy (excluding big threads that are relevant of course) and also to decrease spam on people trolling and bumping old threads.

      The trolls are a big problem here.

      They're not students, and just turn up to post insulting, racist etc. comments.

      One troll (that I reported to the mods) went on a thread opened by a suicidal poster and repeatedly encouraged the thread starter to kill himself.

      A lot of them hang around the right-wing brexit threads, so its not like they're hard to find.
