It's all about customization!
Here's my grand scheme: Link
The customizable menu thingy would be like the "Favorite Boards" page, so you can always see your in-site bookmarks.
And also you would be able to link to a cheats page or a trainer you want to remember to download later or a specific user's blog or whatever.
And it's all in one place, as opposed to being in many places.
Also, maybe include the ability to embed video links, in blogs at least.
Of course, I have absolutely no clue how to do any of it, nor any clue about the ease or difficulty of what I propose.
But you asked for ideas.
It has to be enabled by them site otherwise it wouldn't work.

I think bookmarks for certain threads would be a great idea. That way you can track them for responses without having to search through the recent posts board or your favorite boards list. It would also make moderating flamebait threads a lot easier too.
Maybe an expanded blogs homepage section, more laid out like the boards homepage is would be neat.
Something to see how many people view your blogs would be cool too...
