Is it possible to make it so clicking on a new post in the SB doesn't automatically open it in a new tab? It's a fairly minor thing, but I often end up with 10 or more ZD tabs open from clicking on new posts and then returning to the main forum page. It's not a big thing on my computer, but it uses up a lot of data when I'm on mobile to have multiple tabs open.

Done, should open in the same tab now.

Remove the post approval thing. It was a huge problem in mafia and now I have multiple friends who can't post here because there are no mods online. It seems like it's just going to discourage new users from ever coming back.

I get its bot protection but it seems like a big price to pay on a dying forum.

I won't remove it because it saves a lot of trouble, but I'll give you the solution to avoid posts getting caught. Don't include the http:// or https:// part of links in your posts.

I've changed the shoutbox links back since I have received more feedback that people would rather the old way.

I'll look into the ban lengths when I have time, for now though it isn't a hugely pressing issue and can be alleviated with a PM to a CC or Admin should any issue arise.

I'd like to remind people that suggestions posted here should be serious suggestions as per the OP.

The following has also been added to the OP:

Note: Please ensure suggestions given here are suggestions that impact on the forum and the community. Suggestions related to a personal matter should be directed to staff through private channels rather than posted here.

You should put a description on how the bot-blocking feature works somewhere visible so that new people will be able to see it and avoid using the banned strings in their posts!

Also it would be nice to have a feature that lists all of the posts made on the forum in chronological order! There are two pages that seem to do this (one is the sidebar on the front page titled "Recent Replies and the other is this page here https://zeldadungeon.net/forum/find-new/4591445/posts )

Both seem to be missing posts from various sections of the forum though, and the recent replies list, which is the more complete one, only goes 10 posts back, and I'd like a longer list than that!

Thank you for taking the time to read my suggestions!
