    I do appreciate the "Top Poster of the Month" banner that I received; it's nifty! That being said, there should be other titles and banners awarded on the monthly or even weekly. Top poster is something that requires unreasonable amounts of time to achieve especially with someone like me around...

    You would post this in a Private Message to a Community Coordinator such as Thareous, A_LINK_IN_TIME, In_time, Locke, or myself. Well, not myself. Happy hunting!

    Nope and I don't think we should stop getting notifications. See, this site is run on chivalry - the act of doing good deeds and all that nonsense. We need to be notified of someone liking our posts so we can continue making posts like the ones that are getting liked. This is good.

    I want to suggest that Competition Leaders gain access to two things: - stickying/unstickying - handing out awards We go through such painstaking efforts to get a competition going, then learn at the end of the day that we still need a mod. This isn't necessarily bad; the mod team is quite...

    I support Seth's proposal, though not in the way he has it. Instead, I think we should have colors (not ranks - saying ranks makes people feel animosity and jealousy and shizzle) based on post count. No, this is not for me to get some kind of ego boost with my GoDly post count. I see other...

    An suggestion: not sure if this is possible for the forum staff, but I really like when we get weekly/monthly shoutouts.

    More activity is better for me; I know it's painstaking for the mods, but I really hate seeing this place in lull periods. I prefer having discussion - and it seemed the multiple subboards granted that. But even moreso, as a member of Zelda Dungeon, I prefer being able to make threads in...

    Well this is more of a complaint than anything, but when going to delete things like the Blogs, you have to go to the advanced thing (i.e. actually click on your blog that you want to delete) before you can do the deletion.

    How long ago have you been warned about your signature, and by whom were you infracted? Let me tell you: I've gotten infracted for 'poor posting quality', but that was under some pretty intense moderator's fist. The moderators of today are very lax. If this warning happened a year ago or so...

    I agree and disagree with this. On one hand, it's for convenience. On the other, SB archive access should be something that causes you to try for some kind of rank. The easiest one to achieve is Wiki Contributor. Or you could go write an Article. Or pray to God that you become HK. There are so...

    1) "We've had" =/= "We have" mate 2) Again, "the most respectful users" means absolutely nothing. Anyone can snap at anytime.

    Do remember that we've even had Admins screw with MAJOR things on purpose. You know, the people who actually sign contracts and shizzles.

    Well, I can definitely see this for the comedic affect, but many people swear out the wazoo. If every letter were to be emoted of the swear word, it would definitely cause lag problems for those with weaker computers. And no, "get a better one" is not an immediate option.

    I think it would be nice if all members were given the ability to add/remove the SPOILER tag after posting the thread; oftentimes I forget to add the tag to a new thread and that could lead me to getting in trouble/less desirable rant posts within the thread which could get someone ELSE in trouble.
