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 'edu-7breuwy8rct@o8x3hr8wyrxw.c 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.

Could someone please update the OoT 3d page? I'm getting tired of browsing through 16 pages for one specific trick. Also, there are several tricks with no description, and that needs to be fixed as well.

Do you guys think ZSR could benefit from having sections covering the mini-boss and boss fights in these games? Having trouble with bosses like Phantom Ganon, Goht, and one-cycling Dead Hand. The dungeon strategies don't cover the fights, which are an important part of running, and some strats are less than obvious, especially things like one-cycling Twinrova and Phantom.

A boss strategy page would be a nice thing to add. We just need someone to write one up.

The Wind Waker pages have seen better days, I'd be happy to write information if somebody with the ability would put it into the page for me.

I could contribute some of the boss strats that I do understand, and I would be more than happy to do so. The ones I would need someone else to write for OoT are:

Phantom Ganon (with the arrow trick and one-cycle)
The spin-slash method for Gohma (I just ISG, could never get the spin to work right)
Twinrova
Dead Hand one-cycle (I've done it but I usually just feel it out. I'm sure there are reliable methods worked out)

I would be no help in any of the other games, I'm bad at MM/WW/TP. I mean, I'm bad at OoT, but I'm really bad at the other games.

I'd be happy to do it. I cleaned it up a little a couple weeks ago, but it could use some extra help.

We need an app for the "Post your pic" thread only. It auto loads those pictures and allows you to draw fake mustaches on everyone.
