Most people here don’t even discuss Zelda they just post songs in a thread or **** post in the things on your mind thread
But they originally joined most likely for Zelda not for unrelated game. No one goes to a baseball game hoping "oh boy I hope they also play football here" it's a ridiculous idea to join some place for unrelated activity when there are more dedicated places elsewhere.
I came for the mafia games and stayed for the people.
Honestly, I feel like the purpose of joining a forum is meeting a new community that you can call home.

As someone who never played a Zelda game before, being treated as someone that shouldn't be here by some people kinda depresses me quite a bit.
Refer to the above.
Now sure we have role-play stuff sure but that's not the main focus of a Zelda forum.
Joining ZD for mafia specifically is silly.

Is this meant to be ironic because it's all I see you do.
The point I was trying to make is that with his logic stuff like that shouldn’t exist on this forum then but in hindsight I worded that really badly and was kind of passive aggressive. My bad.

I’m not posting here anymore I don’t want to derail the thread anymore than it hasbeen.

Hi guys, for the sake of mature discussion we will re-open this thread. Please keep all suggestions on topic, and let's avoid any off topic comments and passive-aggressiveness to each other. We obviously all come from different backgrounds, join for different reasons, and stay because as a community we are like family. We don't always agree but most of the time we have productive discussions which ultimately lead to a better quality of life for the members here.

To the original suggestion, I think that Satan's request is not unreasonable, as we have had previous features like Mature Discussion opt-outs. I am not sure if Xenforo2 has these features, so I will defer to @Jimmu and @Vanessa28 to look into this. Perhaps there is an add-on that we can look into. If it helps, I'll be more than happy to consider purchasing it.

Other than that, you are all more than welcome to share your input, just please keep it civil. Thank you!

Actually move game specific topics to their respecitve gaming groups. All of them or none of them. Make your choice.
This incionsistant approach to it that is happening now is really annoying.

Honestly I think a good idea would be for the moderators collectively put out a statement on this so we all know where they stand on this.
At the moment I have no idea what makes the cut to be allow in the general gaming forum and what will be moved to the gaming groups as it feels really RNG at the moment. A little clarity on this issue would be nice.

uh, I don't think I formalized this suggestion, so le's try here

Scrappy can make Shoutbox's main room really floody with the replies posts, specially when there are heated discussions, trolls, spambots, events, people that are quickly updating their thread for some reason, people trying to get a title last second, etc.

I feel like creating a room just for that would help maintaining the main room a bit cleaner.
There are literally no downwards to this, since people can just browse through to the suggested room if they want to keep themselves updated on the forum's activity/find an specific reply.

I totally am down with this. Hopefully they’ll make it. Because it does get pretty crowded in there sometimes

Can we have prefixes "sign ups" and "play" for the role play section?
I think that's a good idea! "Sign Ups" and "Game Thread" like in the Mafia section should work well and be an easy fix. :)
I don't really know much about roleplaying at all. Is there anything in place now to prevent people just doing that on their own for their threads?

I'm not so sure I think this is the best solution, or that there is really any huge issue the majority of the time with the way it is handled now. I feel as though this would cause less activity in people viewing threads. Sure, people could click there if they really wanted to but I feel like the extra step will lower activity and having to click back and forward between rooms when you remember is kind of annoying. Perhaps I could add a second "quiet chat" without the notifications if there is enough demand for it, but I would really rather the main chat to have notifications from threads appearing in there.

I want to see that pictures can be added in signature by uploading an image from a computer.
I am not aware of any Xenforo add-ons which allow this but if I see them available in the future I'd add it.

Aren't people supposed to be able to use prefixes for their own threads??

I dunno what's the big deal with Scrapper announcing the activities of a few threads. I too feel that it would cause a decrease in activity. I find Scrapper quite helpful.

If a separate quite room was created, I doubt people would go there because everytime I login, SB shows up by default. It is more likely to start up a conversation in SB rather than switching rooms.

I have an alt soln idk if it's possible. Why don't you give the ignore feature to Scrapper? (Assuming ignore works in Shout Box)
