I chose Newbie Filtering, HTS open Source, and Remove points. For noob filtering I think anyones first 5 posts in the forums should be approved by the mods. I really like the open source idea, but the realistic missions shouldn't be open source.

Also I would really like to see tutorials on how the stego missions were created, mainly Stego 2.

Regarding the "noob filter" on forum -- the first few posts by a new user are actually moderated and need moderator approval only in the NZone. However, I'd definitely encourage this in all areas of the forum. The problem with it, is that the moderators CANNOT just simply read through each and every post to approve or disapprove. It would be a pain in the a**.

I chose anonymous feedback because there is no way for anyone to comment on how good/bad a job you guys are doing, the only way we can do it is on the IRC and thats not anonymous at all.
More realistics, some XSS and CSRF missions would be nice.
Code bank, let people show off what they made.
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

Best regards, your posting whore,

I'd lyk somewhere we could all post/submit our source codes for finished programming missions, so that we could check each others codes and see how others did it...(kinda lyk TopCoder.com, really kul site too!) and you only get access to codes of missions u've completed urself (obviously! ;) )! I guess thats what code db meant, if not then it jus got a free vote...

That was discussed in this thread: http://www.hackthissite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3443
I'd recommend talking directly to others through IRC after you finish the mission, I agree it's interesting to see the different methods people use. In this context a code bank means a place you could upload programs you made.

Newbie filtering: a lot of users comes on the site make first few challenges then ask how to hack myspace/facebook/etc. on the forum, get smack by the disclamer and give up. This is pretty annoying imo.

HTS open Source: as a friend of a retired moderator, i've seen the code behind some missions and these are pretty fun to go trought after you finished it.

More Programming missions : These are, in my opignion, the hardest challenges and i really enjoyed the few i did.

Newbie filtering system : new users should read the HTS Project Guide, and agree with it, so less people come here asking for help to hack a Myspace, Hotmail, or Facebook account...

More realistic challenges : I haven't done many yet, but I think they're the most interesting ones; it shows concrete applications of what we can learn through HTS.

Even more application challenges : they're really good too, we can learn a lot of stuff about the programs with them, so I think there should be even more.
It is only after you have lost everything when you are free to do anything.

I can almost guarantee that most people on the site have not read the project guide or anything regarding the rules. I can also say that very few know the rules to the forum. Putting up a page where all the rules and terms are and you have to agree to it is already up, how many people have actualy read it?
