i would add a voice type deal though, for the blind. 
i know, they can't see comics, but i don't rule out they 
listen to movies and there might be some with simliar 
interests as everyone on the site.
 
i'd probably also add a politics/religion board.
i think this would fly for whatever reason.
 
otherwise nothing. if it aint broke..

I'd give myself the ability to change main pictures (at the rate I'm going I'll never get there). There are so many poor ones or that have been there forever and are annoying.

@CATMANEXE:
Your first idea is fantastic.   
 
 Nothing personal, but the second one, I wouldn't want and users already go that route with their posts.  Making an official Forum in these areas would just stir up A LOT of drama, and frankly I hate it.  I made the mistake of discussing these matters a long time ago, even jabbing at Babs which was VERY POOR form on my part and I still regret it.  Yes sometimes discussions get serious here but having another Forum dedicated to this I wouldn't want.  I want to talk comics and related items, not get into heated debates in these areas because no one ever agrees and feelings get hurt, a lot more than any convos concernng comics.     There is Facebook and other sites for those topics.  It is not a bad idea,  I personally wouldn't want it. 
 
@howlettgrowl:  Not to be greedy, but I'd make this a pay site.  Allow people to sign up free for 30 days then decide if they'd like to have a membership.  The main reason being to keep a lid on trolls.  Yes, there are paid members who are indeed offensive, trolls, etc., but at least they'd be subject to the rules of ComicVine.  If anyone gets a chance to read it if they already haven't,  Red L.A.M.P. pretty much spells out the code of conduct.  Easy to follow but not everyone does.  :(    
 
Also the Whiskey Media Staff have commented they are working to improve the sites but alas, like anything else, improvement costs money.   Just my input.  Oh, and I'd get Whiskey Media a new office.  Something about them being in the basement hits too close to home for the whole "nerds living in the basement" concept!   
 
Good question for your blog.

nothing personal as well, i only read a sentence or two of the reverb to my second idea
as it was obviously my usual sarcastic post offerings and wasnt actually in seriousness.

I'd add that political board, So that off topic threads don't get flooded with them.
I'd defiantly add a few more females to the "Production Crew" (Meaning the staff), 
Maybe add a "Artist" spotlight session to the CV where they invite an artist (Local or well known) and interview him and maybe get a sample of his work
 
 
More later

I'd add a block feature.  The vast majority of people here are great, but we've all encountered someone that just makes you want to bash your head against a wall.

@CATMANEXE:   Well, Sparky, don't get into trouble.  I won't wait up but  please remember to get me a six-pack.  Oh wait, I don't drink alcohol anymore.  Never mind.    I think Taco Bell may be open 24/7, I could go for some burritos.  Help a brother out will ya? 
@Green Skin:   I was also thinking along those lines but you went steps farther with a great actual tool suggestion.  I am certain plenty of users would use that on me but still that'd be a great function.   However in hindsight, if users would just follow the rules perhaps that wouldn't be necessary. 
@Sha:
I really like that last suggestion you have.  Possibly have a professional comic artist partake in the weekly live show would be great, maybe have him or her do some on the spot artwork?

I'd ask the members of Comicvine what they'd like to see in a possible update of the site, and actually take that into account. And warn ahead of time that there was an update coming so the impact wouldn't be so big but everyone knew what to expect.

@Sha:   Wouldn't that be sweet?    Whom would you like to see if that ever happened?

@Green Skin:
Yes.  I agree and it is sad that is the case.  
 
  Last summer was real bad with a number of trolls. Too many went too far,  insulting not just the Comic Vine users but even directing hateful and profane comments against the Staff and Moderators.  I'd be in for a Block function it is a very good idea.

No problem I love joking around like that, don't meet too many people with that sense of humor.    
 
I like your other suggestion.   Not for me personally but a lot of the younger users would LOVE something like that, you know?  Don't know if CV can auto-generate it but they manage with a lot more complicated things so it could be possible.  Then again I'm not a computer engineer; hell, I can barely type and navigate my way around the site.  That aside, yes, good ideas.

I know and that's the sad part.  Mistakes happen but some people are just plain socially inept and grade A-hole wannabes who have no function other than to troll.   So yes, a Block function would be a good idea.  I'm down with the sickness.

Strange enough I would want some new staffers to do reviews...I love Babs have great respect for G-man but 
some black, mexican, latino or other reviewer sensitive to other issues would make for a great counter reviewer to 
the more mainstream cast.
