There are also a few bugs in the reputation area, also. If you move you're mouse over somebody's hearts you'll just get "Reputation" instead of "Is a Goron" or "Has touched the Triforce." In addition, if you look at your User Control Panel the hearts or skulls for the reputation list won't show. You're probably working on it already, but in case not I'm only letting you know.

The issue with the reputation ranks ("Is a Goron" and "Has touched the Triforce" etc.) can be fixed quite easily, but Wyatt (Kybyrian) is too lazy to do it himself. As for the hearts and skulls not showing up in your Control Panel, try deleting your cache, things like this are usually a problem with cache. I can see the images just fine.

When I view the user control panel, the GET request for the rep_pos1.png image returns a 404 error.

EDIT: The request should be for rep_pospro.png. I imagine this is what's causing the problem Thareous is having as well.

lol I didn't actually know what was causing the problem, but it was a really easy fix. It should be working now.

As for the rep rank messages, yeah I have no idea what is actually causing that particular problem and frankly, neither do Wyatt or David :/

We'll keep looking for you guys.

A concern of mine is that the automatic image resizer is not working anymore, I'm sure members can become aware of how big the images they are using are but it's better if that feature be put back/fixed.

The menu for the Market tab seems pointless to me. The drop down has a link to the market, when the whole tab could be a link, like "What's New?" For example, replace

HTML:
<a style="background:transparent url(images/misc/arrow.png) no-repeat right center; padding-right: 15px" class="popupctrl navtab" href="javascript://" id="yui-gen13">Market</a>
with

HTML:
<a href="market.php" class="navtab">Market</a>
As on the market.php page itself.

About the new template, I did discover what was the whole issue with the clashing of the fonts Verdana and Tahoma... So, like, it's only in links. A link can be formatted as much as you like, but after it's been clicked a followed link automatically reverts back to verdana. I'm not too great with coding, so I would really have no clue what is wrong there, but... hopefully what I said made sense...

If you need a picture, I have to find a link that I have not yet clicked, so... Take the link in Thaerous's signature, for example. There is a link to his blog in his signature, formatted into the font, Arial.
Before I click it:


And after I click it:


There is a definite change in fonts. It's a small thing, so you don't have to fix it right away... probably should resolve more significant problems with the layout if there are any.

And, haha, Kitsu... I was thinking about that a while ago. xD

After looking at the templates, the code that puts the Market dropdown in the header navigation is not in any template. Its in the Market itself. Neither Wyatt nor I could find anything interesting in the settings of the market to remove the dropdown itself. We want to remove it as much as you do, but unless Justin comes in and does one final round of fixing the forums before he's actually gone, you're going to have to live with it for a while. There are more important things that we need to focus on. The Market dropdown is not High Priority.

And thanks for figuring that out Mandy. We'll see what we can do to fix that problem.

Shoutbox Not Compatible With 3DS Software

I'm writing this on my 3DS, so this won't be very long, but I really hope that someone important will see this. Anyways, since the shoutbox has been changed, it has become incompatible with 3DS softwere. This kind of upsets me, because I use the internet a lot on here. Thanks!

The "shoutbox" uses flash (lightIRC), and the Nintendo 3DS Browser doesn't support Flash[1]. You would need an IRC client to use the "shoutbox" on your 3DS.

This isn't really a suggestion per se, but I think ZD could use more Permission (User) Groups aside from the Hylian Knight, HN, Mod, Supra, Admin, Staff, AW and ZWiki groups. Being a regular member for a year now, I feel kind of bored with the tired black color of my username.

Now, I realize a couple things:
  • The admins/supra/mods are in no way obligated to make more usergroups or even have these demanding members on the forum.
  • Making new usergroups would come with new restrictions/requirements to get into said usergroups.
  • People have next to no time to make a user icon for the groups.
  • Multiple colors could be confusing.
  • There are already these usergroups installed, and getting into them is because of your effort as a member. So, you don't become an HK just because you've been a member for 20 years, or you don't become an Admin because you demanded it.
  • Y'all could force me to just join another forum and wouldn't have to bother you hardworking staffers. Or, I could get my much wanted color change in the form of a ban...but I wouldn't be able to participate on ZD! DX

So, you may take this as a ridiculous request and you have all the reason to do so. But I really hate the color of my username. So freaking much, actually. I could care less about my status within ZD society, just want a change from Black but NOT to Gray.

You... pretty much ran through all the reasons why it's an unreasonable request, and thus discounted the request on your own. :P Pretty much not going to happen. There's no sense in creating usergroups for no reason, as that makes the board very convoluted and disorganized. ZeldaDungeon.net's forums already have a pretty high user group count than what's normal, and I know that I, personally at least, do not think that the board should implement any more.

Either way, you are aware of the Article Writers group, right? The one that changes the color of your username when you get an article published, whereas you have an article we're trying to get ready as we speak? :bleh:

How come this is the only group category? It makes it kind of a big mess. Why not have several categories?
Such as: Fan clubs, support groups, hobbies, comedy, etc. Something like that, only... with good names. Something to better sort all of these groups out. If we end up needing a new category we could add them as needed. Anything's better than this.
