I realize this may not happen for awhile, but I have a suggestion for the next live streaming activity. Have a special post where forum members can submit questions a few days beforehand and perhaps make it a little more likely for those questions to be answered than those in the live chat. It would reward forum users and give the hosts a chance to weed out some of the questions before they go live. Of course, I am sure question spammers will still be in the chat session anyway, so it won't eliminate the entire problem.

And not a suggestion, really, but a commendation - I like it when you post featured forum threads on the main page. I think that is one thing you're already doing well that encourages good discussion topics and interest in the Zelda sections of the forum.

Anyway, thanks for your hard work!

That is an incredible idea! I know a lot of the staff don't visit the site on regular basis, so when we talk about performing another stream, I'll most defiantly throw that out there. The last stream we had was to increase activity on our forums and facebook! This would help with our goals! Thanks for the post!

The Forum Games section is very popular and I don't think that just based on its content it should be removed. It is a sub-forum, so its not even out in the open for everyone to notice so easily. It is also a place where not just regular members go to post, but I have seen many times that even our forum staff post in there. With that said, I don't think its necessary at all to remove something from the forums that the majority of the people here enjoy. The fact that the section doesn't attribute to user post counts is also a big reason that its not as harmful as people seem to think. This is why the section is also not heavily moderated. Unless someone is posting porn in there or something inappropriate, then there's basically no rules broken. Since each thread would act as its own game, it would have its own rules and if the thread abides by the most basic of forum rules then its fine with me. Any problems within the section can be reported as posts or whatever if the situation is bad enough.
Well, then fine. I really don't mind the forum rules as much as I just hate how badly these members are bending the rules and the only mod there is saying "aww, they're fine" to almost everything. Could we have a plugin added where you can only post in some threads once a day, mainly just the forum games section. Although, that wouldn't really work well with some games. If the rules are there, those aren't guidelines, those are rules and rules need to be enforced. Slowtalk posting is extraordinarily common there and needs to be cut down immensely. Only one extremely lenient moderator isn't nearly enough. At least make there be the usual 3 moderators posted there. That forum is moderated by a member that the average American timezones don't apply to and almost all the activity there is when that user isn't active, so at least some moderators with the correct time zone.

i suggest the creation of an RPG board! role-playing in forums are a big part of my visit. chatting is cool and all, but i just think being involved in a forum RP is the best. sub-boards would be the practice RPG board, the novice RPG board, and the veteran RPG board. to be honest, the only reason why i go to forums is to partake in the forum games and RPGs. let's admit it, pretending to be someone else is awesome. :P and i feel i get to know the people in the RP better, because a lot of times we talk about the RP outside of the forums (like in skype or whatnot) and we coordinate on what we're going to do next. that is my suggestion. :)

Someone was complaing to me that they could not have a fourth image in their sig because smilies counted as an image. You may want to work on that one if you can.
The extra images thing is a standard for all images because there really isn't any way to differentiate between a smaller and larger one. The more images and stuff you have in a signature, the longer it takes the page to load. Combine that with however many people on that page posted and you have a ton of added loading time just for signatures.

Well, this would perhaps help filter some threads more efficiently and I would definitely post there. Could there be a Game Reviews section?

I agree with @lex, we really do need the frequent podcasts again, they were great. Especially after they finished and a member would do a run-through of host Pokemon battles. It's really good fun, even if it wasn't Mases again, although it would be best if it was Mases.

Please don't post in this thread unless its a real suggestion. We may not reply to an idea that like or dislike. I try my best to check this thread at least once a week. Do you use an iPhone and how bad is it using the regular web browser? Our forums work perfectly fine with my Motorola Droid, so I presume they should work with an iPhone. If the default web browser doesn't work with iPhone and our forums, try looking up Safari Mini.

What about a section for member blogs? You know, where people could go and post things about what's going on their lives, etc?

Not Zelda-related, I know, but a place to share what's going on in their life, feelings, and their random inner thoughts might help to keep people involved in the community.
