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.

You can always contact a moderator and ask them to make that edit for you.
I'll look into those permissions though, that does seem kind of weird to not be able to edit your own thread's prefixes...

EDIT: Yeah can't edit that setting, sorry. If you need a prefix changed, just contact a mod.

Why aren't we allowed to edit blogs? If we see a grammtical error and want to fix it, or feel like we need to add something, I believe we should have that option. After all, we can do it with posts, threads, VMs, and stuff like that--so the same maturity surely would follow with blogs.

You can edit blogs, but it is a bit less obvious than posts and visitor messages. On your blog entries, you should see an icon that looks like this:



Clicking on that will allow you to edit your blog entry.

Give each "Generation" of games it's own forum for example:
TP And SS Could have their own forum
Same with PH,WW And ST
Same with the Four Swords games(Including,depending on the timeline,ALtTP)
Same with OoT And MM
Same with OOX And LA
Same with the NES Games
Same,God-Forbid,with the CD-i Games

Our goal with the forum sections is actually to keep things condensed. The prefixes allow for organization by games anyways, and it's just overall easier to navigate when there aren't a million subforums to keep track of, among other reasons.

I suuggest a section for staff reviews of Zelda games!
Staff members do not have the time right now to review Zelda games. We have had pleanty of reviews in the past, which you can actually find on some of the main pages for each game, if they were made for that game.

We also try to not limit reviews of games to just staff members. Before I became staff, Majora's Cat and I wrote a review of A Link to the Past, which was well written and good. If you want to write your own reviews to be published on the main site, submit it in the article center for revision.

I've been wondering... For the video walkthroughs on this site, do you use video capture boxes that hook up to the system? If you do, why don't you guys make video walkthroughs for games like A Link to the Past and The Wind Waker? If you don't use them, I would highly recommend them. They are quite expensive, but they provide clear video and sound quality.

P.S. I've also heard talks of a video walkthrough of TWW already being made. With this, which video wlkthrough will most likely come first: The Wind Waker of Skyward Sword?

We have focused on making quality work for our other guides. We have plans to make ALttP and WW better, but we have to focus on the needs of the site right now. They will come eventually.

Most likely the Skyward Sword video walkthrough will come first (especially seeing as how our staff is really busy with it), as that is what everyone will be looking for.

Yes, I recall that ALTTP review. It was very well written.

I've seen a lot of this, but a lot of members post questions that could be solved by asking another member. I understand that they are new and won't know much, but how about getting the new members to see a rule saying that there shouldn't be any questions like that posted on a forum? Just a thought I came up with.

Is it possible to remove the full page ads from appearing? I just find it annoying as it pops up when I'm browsing the and I can't get to the x to close it. I'm on a netbook so that could be the problem.

I actually had this idea for awhile. Can there be an forum section for the GCC entries? On other forums I've been on, there is a section for GCCs like the discussion, the entry (theme), then the voting.

The welcome PM sent to all new members has links to the rules and FAQs. I just added in some clarification about forum questions though, as I have noticed this problem as well. Unfortunately, getting people to actually read notices about rules is about as hard as getting them to read the rules themselves. The welcome PM is sent out to every new member that registers though, so that's as close as we can get.

The site staff has already discussed the ads, and users should be able to avoid getting the ads at all by installing ad blocker extensions for whatever browser they are using. I'm not the most tech-savvy individual though, that's David's department.

The community competitions are not a large enough thing to require their own subforums. The current system of stickying the threads in the general fan works board suffices for the few CC threads that exist.
