Regarding the "Event Staff" Banner

Recently the new "Event Staff" banner started looking off to me, and I'm not sure if any modifications were done to it. However, in its current state, the banner looks really unnatural. If I may use GirlWithAFairy's profile as an example...

You can see that it doesn't look quite right. In all other banners, the title of the rank is perfectly centered between the user title and avatar picture. All other banners are placed immediately below the user title, while there is some filler space between the banner and the title. Click here and we can plainly see that the dimensions of the banner, 150 x 48, is abnormally large because of the space at the top. Compared with the "Article Writer" banner, which is 150 x 35 pixels (a fairly standard size used for banners on the forums), it looks really off.

Sorry, this was just really nagging at my brain.

Since there are many Anime/Manga fans here maybe we could have an "Anime Area" subforum in the "General Chitchat" forum? It could be a great place for discussion on all things Anime and Manga. What do you guys think?

This is a super-minor gripe, but when using the brown skin, the little module at the top of each thread listing how many likes exist is rather bright and contrasts with the rest of the skin. Is there any way to tone it down a bit?

There're a lot of bugs with the brown forum skin that should be fixed, but haven't been, and I'm glad I'm not the only one suffering... =/ Here's another example:

Like, the actions in the shoutbox are black text, even on brown skin:

It is especially difficult to read on my monitor, because it doesn't have the best color palette to begin with, so it's just very annoying. I just wanted to point it outtt... even though I'm a mod and could probably directly nag someone to do something about it...

Yes, that's rather annoying as well. It honestly scared me away from the skin at first, but apart for the minor bugs I think it's the best skin on ZD.


Also, I forgot to mention this in my first post but having some more control over our postbits could be nice. I really dislike clutter and I don't get why our number of blogs have to be in our postbit at all. Post number makes sense, so do join date and location I guess, but why blogs?

I wanted to post this in the purple board but... Anyway, the competitions subforum is going strongly but I feel it could use some extra spice. So I thought of a few more competitions to have hosted:

Speedrunning/Misc Challenge Competitions (primarily Zelda but it can branch out)
The basic premise for this is the competition host picks a game [again, primarily a Zelda game but branch outs are possible], pick a section (eg OoT Inside the Deku Tree), and then the players record their various runs. Whoever does it the fastest (or whatever the criteria is, could be no damage or killing all enemies or whatever) wins. A decent enough camera or capture card is needed for this, as well as a computer fast enough for video capture. Still, I wager most of us have cameras like iPhone type or a little worse or better.

Dance
The basic premise for this is the competition picks a dance and the people do it. Whoever dances the best (or whoever garners the most votes really) wins. This was inspired by seeing Majora's Cat going along making dance videos :]

EDIT:
I know the comp team is busy and stuff...but I really want to push for video game competitions. A couple members on the site I know have a Dazzle at the very least, others have Hauppauge HD PVR and some still just have external cameras. I could host video game comps (I've done it before, made awards for people as well)...I just wanna see it happen.

Can we move the two Pokemon sections together?

Also, I don't really think the "World of" prefixes are really necessary these days. I feel like it would be cleaner just to have the sections named "Darksiders", "Pokemon" and "The Legend of Zelda".

So, I just bought two masks in the VB Shop and it turns out that they don't get displayed like some of the other items. Perhaps you guys could create a separate box on the profile pages somewhere between "Friends" and "Last 20 Visitors" in which the items that don't get displayed beneath your post count can at least be shown off somewhere.

EDIT: I do understand that they are visible by clicking on the "VB Shop" tab of your profile page but I feel it kind of defeats the purpose of buying the item if you can't display what you spent your hard-earned gold on.

EDIT 2: Also, while I'm remembering, DGN does not have an abbreviation rollover for it yet like ZD does. Since ZD is now part of DGN, perhaps it would be a good idea to have one of those rollovers for it.

I had an idea recently. In the anime Sword Art Online, players of the game could get "married". It was like a form of friending, although it was a deeper connection then a simple friendship request. I think we should have Marriage Requests here at Zelda Dungeon, what with all the "marriages" going on between members anyway. Why not make it official? I think it would be pretty neat! There could even be a little married icon, in the shape of a wedding ring, next to our usernames, next to the gender icon. I'm not entirely sure how far this would go, though, but it would probably have to have more benefits than a friend request.

I'll let you experts in the staff think this over. ;)
Bumping this up because I think it's a GENIUS idea! :brow: <3

The "in a relationship" stuff on Facebook is fine, I suppose, but most of these relationships or marriages as presented online are real. Facebook is a more personal social networking site while at Dungeon Gaming Network, many more people choose to withhold their identities. Even if we are joking, it would be weird to say that you're "married" to another user, as it can actually have romantic implications. It would also be super weird if a middle-aged person was "married" to a ten-year-old. The horror...

As per recent discussion in the shoutbox, I think it'd be great if we could bring back just a snippet of the rep system: the feedback part of it. I know, I mentioned rep and now everyone is groaning. BUt, hear me out.

Sometimes, we all make posts that have a couple issues with them. Whether it's behavioral, grammar/syntax, or whatever idea you can come up with...we all make these kinda posts from time to time. I think being able to give feedback--anonymously or not--would benefit the COMMUNITY quite a bit. We don't need positive or negative rep, just feedback. ^^

It has been proposed that we alter the word censor that censors swear words and other offensive words.

At the current time it changes words deemed unsuitable to a common audience from the word itself, to an asterisk for each letter in the word, such as ****.

It has been proposed that we change the asterisks to simply a single :cucco: for comedic effect. I believe this is for the benefit of the forum, and we have many supporters.

Another option is a :cucco: for each letter in the word such as :cucco::cucco::cucco::cucco:
