Would it be possible for the user title glows to become visible on Internet Explorer? Obviously, it would be a low priority, but if you're capable of doing it, please do at some point in time.
Its impossible. Text glows are a CSS3 attribute that Internet Explorer just doesn't support. We've been saying for months to just get Firefox or Chrome, or some other browser that supports it. Internet Explorer just won't do it. And.... Internet Explorer sucks, a lot. Get Firefox or Chrome. Both are free and are extremely easy to use and get used to.

Ok, I lied. Its not impossible. But, its way too complex to get it to work with vBulliten. The method involves using some old CSS hacks, but even then, they don't render properly at all. (Trust me, I've attempted with text shadows in IE. They render completely messed up and ugly like, even with the same settings.)

May I suggest a Sticky Thread in the Modern Zelda section explaining why there's no Four Swords coverage? This way, users that don't know why wil stop making threads that ask the question. It's seems like a quick, helpful thing that can be added on.

No need to! Those projects are being worked on as we speak! There will be section added hopefully before 2012!

You can ask an admin or mod to change it for you. They seem to only change it on specific occasions, such as if you're a very new user and you didn't like your name, or if you just desperately want it to be changed.

You can ask either Kybyrian or Xinnamin to change it for you. However, you have to have a valid reason to want a name change and what they see as valid are different; Kybyrian seems to only give name changes to new users, I don't know about Xinnamin, though.

The reason name changes are limited is because it causes confusion if too many members suddenly decide they want to be called something else. New users are allowed to have a name change because they haven't established themselves well enough yet for it to matter, and the only other exceptions we really give is if an individual has become well known enough by another name, usually their real name, that confusion can be avoided with a formal name change,

in ZU, not trying to make the same site or anything, just asking a question, if a member would change their name, a user could scroll over the other users name to see what previous names they were. Reguardless, what i was asking was there isnt really an oltion to change names because of confusion?

I wanted to make some suggestions not only for the forums, but for the main site as well.


First thing on my agenda is fixing some Article Writer usergroup glitches. AWs cannot view other members or their own MixPods. Secondly, the "Top Posters of the Day" is missing. Finally, the Restricted area of Zelda Dungeon is no longer available to Article Writers. I hope these issues will be addressed soon.

Next thing wanted to mention is about the front page. May I suggest there be a sidebar (along with the affiliates list and FaceBook likes, possibly below the Featured News section) that includes all recent changes or updates done to walkthroughs and other not-front-page sections of the Zelda Dungeon site. What I mean by this is basically everything except for front page news posts, just a little update sidebar. If it's not able to be accomplished (or if it isn't feasible), I'll understand.

And the third thing I want to say isn't really main site or forum related. In fact, I suggest that Zelda Dungeon try to gain full support from much smaller and less important forums/sites. I think it would be a strategic move for Zelda Dungeon's forum to merge with much smaller forums that are in desperate need of activity. This would make ZD larger and help it expand a little bit. And I also suggest making amends with larger forums, even with all the differences and disputes ZD has had with Zelda Informer and Zelda Universe. It would increase the site's publicity, and ZU and ZI people would actually want to join ZD if this site was endorsed on the other two major non-official Zelda sites.

Last but certainly not least, it might be a good idea to feature less-than-serious front page posts. There are already enough news posts and Skyward Sword updates circulating at the moment. There really should be something to lighten the mood, not to mention that the main site would get a hell of a lot of traffic. I don't think ZD's reputation of being a very serious and trustworthy news source would be tarnished because of humorous posts... if done in moderation.


Those are all of my suggestions for now. Hope no one finds them too far-fetched.

All Article Writers should be able to do these things now.

I suggest making a notification if someone posts on your blog. All too often I post a blog and forget about it, and then people post on it and I can't tell. Is it possible?

Unfortunately, this is not possible as of yet. We have looked into it in the past, and there is still no solution. For this to happen vBulletin will have to update the suite to include notifications for this. For now, you'll just have to check your blog for new posts every so often. Sorry about the inconvenience, as I wish that it was possible too.
