I'm sure you guys've gotten this before, but I'd be extremely overjoyed if you guys could be magical geniuses and make a mobile webpage/mobile app of either the Forum site, or the main page of Zelda Dungeon. I don't think you guys realize how dreadful it is for people without consistent computer access to be able to do anything on here. Basically, what I'm trying to say is: the browsers on mobile devices suck, and we'd like a mobile site.
Mobile sites are a huge project and cannot be made very easily. There are vBulletin mobile themes, but none of them are very good. If we were to do a mobile theme, we'd make it work with the entire site. Also, mobile browsers are actually pretty decent browsers. If you are using an Android, grab Dolphin (if not on Ice Cream Sandwich) or even Google Chrome Beta (for Ice Cream Sandwich). If you are on an iPod, grab Dolphin or one of the other more powerful browsers than Safari. Lifehacker has some great articles for those, just do a Google search for them.

The Mobile website is something that Caleb and I have discussed extensively recently and over the years. At this point in time we've made the conscious decision not to go forward with that. Something along those lines is gigantic project and it's something that we think our resources can be better spent improving other aspects of the website.

Perhaps for the forums specifically we can look at simple vbulletin modifications. I think there is stuff for it, but I've never personally seen it implemented.

A suggestion

I've been thinking, there should like, be an official Zelda Dungeon Chatroom.
Personally, I am very active in PurpleSurge IRC, so having a channel on PurpleSurge would be great.
Thank you for reading my suggestion :)

Hi there! We do in fact have a shoutbox, however the requirements are 50 posts and a post in the last 24 hours. When you have that, you should be able to view the shoutbox. :)
 
This has already been put out there before, however, I endorse gender symbols next to poster's name to avoid confusion. This has been especially truly of some females with more masculine related user names.

Also, I think the top poster bar should be removed completely as some people simply seem to want to accumulate posts to be shown there. This is especially true of spammers in the Forum Games subforum. >_>

Didn't I already answer this one?

I've added gender to the information displayed in your post. I'll work on adding a symbol here in a little bit.

As for the forum games, we really don't have a concern with that. It still helps with some things, and we know who is a spammer and who is not. I don't think the little "competitions" going on is a harmful thing.

Okay, I think there should be a way to withhold your gender completely, I know some people would like to do that.

You know, the tricky ones who like to trick people about their gender.

That's silly, but yeah you can choose to not display your gender at all.

I've suggested this to Mases at least twice and I still think it would be good for Zelda Dungeon to have an official Tumblr. With it's Millions of users and easy to use set-up I know it would be the perfect place to post news, videos, fan art, answer questions, and expand Zelda Dungeon's already vast community. I am more than willing to put forth my time and effort to making this project happen.

Personally, I'd like to see the World of Zelda area cleaned up. By that I mean can it be separated into at least two sections: Classic Zelda & Modern Zelda. It would make it a whole lot easier to find a thread to a specific game. Why did we get rid of that in the first place? That is all I'll "complain" about for now.

That is actually how it used to be until very recently. A few months ago the sections were compressed into the single section. I think having more to do with each person here having a very different definition on what is a classic and modern game in the series. Honestly I prefer separate sections to a hugely compressed one myself. Perhaps it does "clean" things up in a way on the forum but it makes finding topics a little more of a pain for people browsing.
