I used to do work for the Google. Pages are rated by quality, authority on a subject and utility for the query made.
This site would be rated medium overall, just the same as fiver mountain. Fiver mountain has a better home page than this one, so it does have slightly more utility due to the home page.
The best way for Mr. Pap to improve the quality of the site would be to have a home page with very useful links to ALL the features of the site. For instance, seperate pages for things like Redslo's other blogs selections, the automatic Optimus Trousers thingy, stuff like that. They would appear as utility pages rather than a forum thread. All linked to from the snazzy home page. This forum would be contained as a link on the home page.
Also, it would need copyright info, contact info would be optional for a site such as this as it does not sell anything. The home page has to be kept up to date at all times and never look abandoned.
Pap, if you have any questions about how Google rates quality, I would be happy to answer any questions and review any proposed pages for quality. That is what I did for Google.
Oh yes, the swear filter is not a problem at all, but if you had a homepage, a subtle warning would be helpul for the forum link.
Oh yes. "About us" pages are very important too.
PS. When OT is running as needed. He would be a great home page feature with good utility.
