I've been thinking about starting a new thread, and was wondering if anybody had any advice about doing do.
I would like it to be just contentious enough to get to a third page, but not so contentious that it ignites a forum-searing flame war. I would prefer that it not attract Dobie/Ace of Spades, but as long as their participation doesn't become the focus of the thread I won't mind terribly if they appear.

Exactly. Here's the thing--members of the board by definition can't be members of the forum. right? And we want to increase the number of active posters on the site, right? A desire to stop wearing itchy wigs will undoubtedly cause board members to disqualify themselves from board membership the only way they know how--joining the forum.
It's foolproof. With one swift stroke, we put in place a body that increases the potential quality of new threads and drive up forum membership!

So only certain people would be allowed to make new threads, but only after bribing a board of itchy wig wearing experts. Do the thread making elite wear any silly requisites? I believe in an act of posterity in regards to The Board and their uncomfortable wigs the thread-makers should each wear a fake mustache. It communicates a common trait between thread-maker and board member, and displays the thread-makers lower position to the board member and their utmost highest positioned false hair accessory.
Along this line of thought, one could deduce that a lurker would wear hobbit foot hair and a regular forum poster a merkin.
