It has been proposed that we alter the word censor that censors swear words and other offensive words.
Well, I can definitely see this for the comedic affect, but many people swear out the wazoo. If every letter were to be emoted of the swear word, it would definitely cause lag problems for those with weaker computers. And no, "get a better one" is not an immediate option.

I don't really see the point to be honest... I almost feel like people who wouldn't normally use a censored word might opt to because of the Cuccos. >.<

The ***'s are there to keep things clean, the Cuccos would be a bit distracting (especially an army of them) and could confuse the newblits as well who might thing people are just spamming the emote. Just my two cents~

There should be a thread prefix called "onion" so that it can give viewers a heads up that it's an onion thread. (If you don't know, I say :onion: instead of opinion, so yes, this suggestion makes sense).

So, I noticed a while back that there is no blogid BB code. Is there a way that could possibly be implemented? Not that it'd necessarily be used as frequently as the threadid and postid ones, but I think it should be available for when it is needed.

Well, there is still a way to address one another in quotes. That's by replying with a quote and taking out the superfluous numbers next to the name, or by copy/pasting the text into the field, enclosing it with quote tags, and entering "=Example/Name" after the first
. I do the latter constantly when responding to blog replies, and it only takes a few extra second at best.

However, something that would definitely be useful in the blogs section are permalinks for each and every blog response. I know that we have the anchor icon to link to a certain post after it's been edited, but that only works for the member who did the editing. Suppose that someone wanted to link a comment to a friend, but couldn't due to its absence. That's a severe inconvenience, because then they'd have to explain exactly where in a blog it is, and the material therein would lose its originality, among a myriad of other issues. So I think that permalinks are a necessity.

Also, who knows? Perhaps permalinks are the key to Mandems' blogid suggestion. If so, two birds with one stone.

I think it may have something to do with the new theme's implementation, but the postbits on the ZD Brown theme are now disoriented. Locke suggested that it may have been my browser, so I switched over to Chrome and it is still the same.

Right now, they look like [thanks, Rutherfordium, for being a reference <3]

The gold, primarily, makes it noticeably an error.
Before--like yesterday, even--they looked like [thanks, Iridium, for also being a reference <3]

The gifts would be right beneath the awards showcase.
Not sure what broke, but it's not too urgent a fix. Probably something universal for the themes was altered-- but since this theme has the showcases above the avatars, while the other ones have them below, it likely just buggered out.

Just bringing this to attention, so you guys know. Thanks.

Gotta push thsi idea again: Zelda Video Competitions for awards and stuff. We could do things like record the fastest no damage Hero Mode run of Earth Temple, or maybe have votes on who did a shieldless run most elegantly et cetera. Just to get the community more active about Zelda (and maybe Darksiders/Pokemon?)

Didn't I already answer this one?

This is intentional. Though the gold should be above the showcase. I cannot replicate this.

Just a small thing: When you use the PM feature on the SB, if you use quotation marks it will not send at all.
This is something I may actually be able to fix... I know what's causing it, at least.

...never mind, I don't know what's causing it.

I figured out what's causing it and applied a hotfix, but I'm certain I broke something else by doing it, so let me know if you find what else broke. It'd probably have something to do with popup dialog boxes.

I'm wondering, with emotes exceeding 20x20 have supposedly been removed, how come there are still several left that exceeds the size restriction? And how come some of the emotes that were removed did not exceed the size restrictions?

All that were removed did exceed the size restriction. I believe they images are still in the database to where I could check them, actually. I personally checked the dimensions of every image and removed them selectively. As for those that remain over the size restriction, they have likely either been recently uploaded or are from the default forum smiley set we have had in place for years.
