I have a suggestion for the basic forums.

It would be beneficial for there to be a welcome PM/Email for new members that explain where to go to read the rules, the forum FAQ's, and the Graphics How-To thread. I've been seeing some new threads pop up on how to do basic things on the forums that are covered in the FAQ's. Obviously, they get taken care of quickly, but I think that sending a message with links to these resources would be beneficial to both the newcomers and the moderators.
I agree! I've been making some changes with new users, and it should be fair to give them some information.

I've always wanted the ability to do quotes on selected text, instead of having to quote the entire post, and then delete what I don't want in the quote:

The Mod: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248504
:D
I guess I can look into this. It seems like a fair mod, and doesn't seem to take up a lot of computing resources.

I know you probably have it this way for a reason, but the post limit is kind of annoying. Especially when you only have a couple words to say (like in response to the riddle thread).
One, 30 characters are not that long. If you want to make a post about something, try making a sentence out of it, or add a funny comment.

Thanks for the suggestions! Sorry, I couldn't respond right away! I haven't ha a computer for the last week.

I'm sorry for posting this here, but I couldn't find a bug thread. This morning I logged into the forums and tried to write a reply to one of my own threads and no matter how many times I tried it would not appear. Eventually it started telling me that I was making duplicate posts, even though the reply I wrote isn't even there.

Is this a glitch or something?

Nevermind - it finally showed up. I wonder what the lag was? Do you guys have bad servers or something?

I know a super special extra special way to bypass the word limit, but my lips are sealed, they are. The only person I've told it to is Durion, and he is sworn to secrecy, or death.
If people like me know this "super special extra special way", then it probably isn't very "super special extra special" anymore. Just saying.

Somebody should make News Archive for Zelda Dungeon index page...

Archive pages in a blog is like the books in a organized self. Your readers will be able to navigate through all your older posts easily. An archive page gives your blog a professional look and increases it”s SEO values. Yes, archive page acts like a sitemap and will help search engine spiders to know your site contents better. If you don’t have it already, create one archive page for your wordpress blog using this easy to understand tutorial.

A little suggestion...

For the Forum in general or perhaps just the Game Help, let the user who did the thread able to close it. That way mods wouldnt be asked every 10 seconds to close a Help thread that has been answered many times

I just found out we can't use
BBCode in VM's. I suggest you change it. I was gonna give somebody a picture for a birthday, and center it with a message, only to find that
tags "are not allowed".​

For bugs and technical problems, please PM me. This will send an email notification, and stores it in my PM box. When I get time, I can go through my PM box and deal with each issue.

Just maybe i would want more podcasts. i know that people have a life outside ZD but i would like them a little more frequent
There are some plan/talk about doing mini podcasts, but that won't be for a while. Podcast take time, and Din-Nid/Rish both have busy lives, but they try their best to get one done each month.

I guess I can work on that. If you click the arrow buttons at the bottom of the page, you can read older posts.

They don't really get PM'd that much. I'm hesitant to close right away by the user. There may be another user with similar problem, but not exact. This user can leave a post with extra info dealing with their own problem. Then someone else can post with additional help. The thread will then become more useful for solving future problems.

I wasn't aware of this, I'll fix that for you! Thanks for the notifications.​

Okay, I read back through some pages and I couldn't find this. If this has been suggested already I apologise. But could we perhaps have some sort of notification when someone posts a comment on one of our blogs?

I believe you can change it in the settings.

I think you should remove the character limit from Visitor Messages. They're somewhat private, plus Private Messages already have no limit.
While I'm on the subject, you should also remove the character limit from the Forum Games section. People tend to make and expect shorter posts there, just because that's the kind of section it is.

Didn't I already answer this one?

It is not possible to remove the character limit from Forum Games or Visitor Messages. The character limit is applied forum-wide. Feel free to take means to bypass the character limit in the forum games and VMs, but don't try it outside of those areas.
