    I think you can. I don't know how. There's always the noahpls route.

    The Guide Submission thread should be in the same forum tier as the guide hub.

    I also haven't found a way to make thread redirects cleanly so I imagine Noah will have to make the guide section redirects, if everyone agrees with that

    Okay, here's an idea: Having a Projects Showcase more similar to how it used to be on benheck (it's not up anymore and I don't remember exactly how it was, just that it was awesome.) Basically, it was a list of all portables, and you could click one and it would have a dedicated page with a main picture and details about it, etc, I'm sure some of you remember.

    Right now our Projects Showcase is almost the exact same as the site news feed, it has the wii trimming guide on it (which as good as it is, does it belong in the "projects showcase"?), and not all projects are listed there.

    We need a dedicated article writer, someone who's experienced enough and active enough to properly maintain a database like that.

    Yeah, I want to do something more than just a forum for projects. Things get lost too easily IMO and a lot of projects aren't given the recognition they deserve. After PortablizeMii is out it's something I'll definitely look at. :)

    I say give whoever does it a special banner like "archiver," "librarian" or "chronicler"


    This looks like something @Doom would be interested in.

    Back when we first started there was talk of having "front page staff." So it'd fit in with that I'm assuming. The user group might still even exist, not sure.

    Doom has his own site to run so I wouldn't want him to have to worry about our stuff too unless he wanted to do it.

    Sweet! Once we start to look into this I'll shoot you a PM. Shouldn't be too long at all.

    I don't want to be in charge of it since I'm already doing a terrible job on my own website for content, however I wouldn't mind doing an article here or there every so often, perhaps some content tradsies for guest content on each site.

    The Store needs a button to go back the main forums/website

    There's a discreet one on the bottom of the page but I'll most likely add one in the header so that it's easy to get back.

    Sneaky >_>

    I figured it was another social network. :/ I need to educate myself.

    No I think you're right. It's not intuitive whatsoever and "Connect with us" heavily implies linking to a social network and not back to the main site. Unless those speech bubbles are a symbol for internet forums and I'm unaware.

    Can you attach a picture to a post you're editing? When editing a post, the upload a file button gets replaced by a more options button and clicking that throws a ERR_BLOCKED_BY_XSS_AUDITOR error on chrome.

    Another feature that would be really cool would be a setting to receive email notifications only for threads that you've authored or when someone quotes you or something along those lines. I like receiving email notifications so that I can see when someone responds to me ASAP but it's kind of annoying to receive an email for every thread I'm watching. Just my 2c. :)

    You can change it when you hit the watch thread button, but having that automatic would be cool

    This could help alot of our younger members as well whom recently moved out and are on their own.

    I do alot of budget cooking and quick foods, so I'd be a wealth of information for it.

    Also, as stated, there needs to be a single stickied thread for pizza recipes, we could potentially give @Aurelio enough variety to last an entire year.


    Here at BitBuilt we don't only care about your projects, we care about you!


    Separately, there should be a title under my username that says "Aquaman", just saying >°>

    I'm totally down for this idea just because Noah gave me some seasoning information way back, which I then tested out on Cheese when he showed up pre-MGC and he said it was good. Even better, Aurelio has whispered sweet pizza secrets to me that have improved the quality of my cooking exponentially.
