Scrolling News added to main page, I'll soon make it a link to a news page. That way you can click it and see the whole history for the main news section.
Also finished the IRC page so its got the corrected images and stuff.

Changed the color saturation for the game menu glows. Looks alot better I'd say. Also Slowi, great job with the RSS-feeds, awesome :)

How about an icon that people can click to open up a new page and report any page issues like dead links or incorrect information and whatnot?

Yo Cos, I'm thinking we should make a README that anyone who will be working on Pages or has the FTP password must read. Just explaining things like not deleting anything, erasing other people's changes if you're both updating content, ways to safeguard against those things, and the like.

I mentioned this in IRC but we really need to have a captcha system up on here for signups, which of course if you're interested in applying, Here's some Security mods for SMF forums
RBA stands for Rare Bird Adventure. We call it that because we need to get the blue cucco in order to use it.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I know I at least never saw it in this topic.

When submitting an individual dungeon run of any kind, we're asked to submit an MP4 video file, which is easy to come across thanks to YouTube. However, this video is then put on a stream based on this site using the JW player. This is fine, except a lot of people will then download temple runs and upload them to their own YouTube.

I know everyone can download YouTube videos and do the same if they really wanted to, but stealing is a lot less likely if the video streams are hosted there. So, if the player chooses to, and offers the same video (which you can download from YouTube) to you, couldyou provide the option of having video(s) streamed via YouTube instead? I know this would definitely motivate me to submit some. ^_^

Sections for more than just Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. We need Minish Cap, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, etc to have sections full with videos and pages of tricks and speed runs just like the other sections.

The problem is that there is no interest in these games currently, so no one wants to do any of the pages.  There's a plan in progress to do a collective 2D zelda games page, which would include LoZ, AoL, ALttP, LA, OoA, OoS, and TMC.  The basic structure would be the same, but a lack of tricks for the games (except maybe LA) means it would be a waste of space to make individual sections for each.

Could we have the "Vine Clip" section in the OoT Techniques deleted?  All of the info is covered in the generic "Clipping" section, so it's redundant.

clarifying the reverse bottle adventure page(OoT) so that the effects can be made sense of if you dont have a degree in computer science would be nice. a simple if you have x on c right and catch y in your b bottle these are the effects. this would certainly make it easier to understand. currently the only way that i can get my desired solution is to find a video of someone doing it with what i want as the effect

Stuff like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4CzXmblMvY

Is why I wouldn't even bother. We just called the route "complete" a few days ago and now it's already likely to have a different bomb count and different fire temple strategy.

Just a suggestion: maybe start including controller icons and flashing in "red" (or similar to that effect) what inputs are being pressed to match on-screen action or something in your videos, and slowing them down a bit?  That would have been extremely appreciated on the DoT Skip video.

Sorry everybody for bumping an old thread, but I suggest a spam box section, or something.

Here's why:
Recently a member created a new thread in 'Other Zeldas' about some abortion program. See here: http://forums.zeldaspeedruns.com/index.php?topic=1046.msg17532#new

I'm quite sure that this stuff is not what we want to see on this site. We may soon reach the point where spam starts to trickle in.

Considering the number of spam accounts created each day, I think the spam problem can be improved. That said, it's not that big of a problem as it once was about a year or two? ago, but at it's current rate it is easily managed.

Also, please don't quote spam, it only assists the spambot's prime directive to flood pages with links.

I have no idea why I decided to quote the spam, kind of a fail on my part. But it looks like it happened again, this time in the Wind Waker forums, by swmwq8097, and I already see a trend, which may or may not continue: the topic titles are 'blah blah blah (about some products or programs or whatever that you pay for) XXXX' (a four-digit number)

Another common trend for spammers is to use emails like '[email protected] om' (space added to prevent the auto-hyperlink) and, not so reliable (sometimes legitimate users have strange, garbled-looking names, I had one like that at one point) is that they will have usernames that don't contain any legible words, or are themselves more ads.

This is known. They're bots, not actual people. That's why the emails/threads/usernames look like random nonsense. The spam is being managed as best as it can by the moderators and admins, so just try your best to ignore it until it gets removed.

Furthermore, users can use the "report to moderator" button at the bottom of a spam post to highlight it as an issue, so that's something Kzar et al. can do to help.
