Ok - I'm gonna repeat what I said in the other thread, just to steer this away from the Smiley thing
1 - I think we need to post more News, and have new threads rather than continuing old ones. Sometimes, new info gets buried on Page 7 and its tough to keep up. Personally, I think each of the following would have been a worthwhile new thread: - New Zoids Motor - Design Pics of ZED-1 and 2 - Actual Photos of ZED-1 and 2 - HHM Sabre Tiger (ok - turned out to be wrong, but it was still news-worthy) - First Pics of Shield Liger Commander Sprue - First Pics of built Shield Liger Commander
2 - I don't understand why Reviews is "hidden" under Model Kits. I love Reviews, and like to be able to spot new one from the front page. In fact, I think we should re-review every single Zoid, starting from the beginning. And Adamassc should be whipped each time he misses a Sunday Review ...
3 - Kinda linked to point 2, I'd like to see the ZRC updated. Both HLJ and Amenbo have taken off pics of anything not In Stock, so its tougher to find pics of older NJR stuff. Plus it would be great to have Battle Stories, CP pics and Official Fuzions.
4 - I'd like to see a second contest around Summer time, preferably with a theme. And I'd be happy to donate some money or models towards the prizes.
Fluff text is low priority...well, fluff far as I'm concerned, and the box story snippets are pants compared to the book ones. But yes, there are plans for the Reference Center to get updated and poked at, and I should get out your custom contest idea and prod people with it, because I want to run it.
how about we have another annual custom contest, nothing with prizes, just for simple cool customs- u know like say we can even do a contest like say, we all can find alike zoids that we all customed once from past to present and we do a little contest and who ever wins can get like a certificate or so (meaning like a writing paper certificate u can get) just to spice things up and draw more fans to the forum since right now we are getting lamer, thats er to u all and me. Ex. like all shield liger customs from present to past and we pick the best and certify that person, and it has to be a zoid that has been customed numerous times.
Sorry to bring this back up, i was wondering since zoidphillipines forum have a database for customs we should do one as well. and if it helps, perhaps we can at the end of each year pic the best non-entry contest custom zoid and give that person best non-entry certificate.
You should add a link in member bios that leads to a linklist of thier customs or collection pics. They can have the options to add a link to a list of collection or a link to custom pics. Something like that. I think that it would make associating a custom with its artist, and make them in a sort-of database for curious browsers. It shouldn't make the custom forums obsolete, because it's more like an announcement and quick feedback thing, whereas you can see the whole list of a user's customs/collections pictures from thier bio. Just some suggestions :)

Gah! That figures huh? I also like the idea of more contests, but thats totally up to who can host/judge. So it's more question of available people. I would host one, but I have nothing to give away, nor am I experienced in sending packages :P
If you want to run a competition, run your idea past a couple of the mods. Tilly will be able to tell you about the reality of hosting a contest.
Prizes, though very nice, are not required. The Annual Pheno's Custom Contest has no prizes, just kudos and bragging rights.
Aside from the free-for-all Annual Contest, we've just had the Racing theme, Design a Zoid/Faction Contest, Design a Box, etc, etc. Zoidsfans have had Sea Zoids and Command Zoids as themes. So long as your idea is interesting, I think people will enter.
Ok i now everyone here is a much higher rank than me, and i don't want to give the moderators and admis more work but i think there should be a noob board, just so they learn how to get the hang of things and request banners or pics or anything they should need. Thats just my suggestion.
