they have likely either been recently uploaded or are from the default forum smiley set we have had in place for years.
Actually, :vaati:, :daphnes:, and :ezlo: aren't that recent, and exceed the size limit by quite a bit. More recent ones that only exceed the limit slightly were removed, but not these. I figured that they weren't removed on purpose because they were Zelda related.

What about instead of making the "currency" on here Gold, it's more series-based?

By this I mean that the forum layouts can have monetary names from the respective series. In my mind it could work out like this:

-Default/Dark themes = Zelda, so the currency would show up as Rupees in posts
-Pokemon Dungeons theme = Pokemon, so the currency would show up as Pokedollars in posts
-Darksiders theme = Darksiders, so the currency would show up as Gilt in posts
-Gengame... Not sure exactly, but maybe it could stick to Gold

Perhaps this has already been thought through, but if not I think it would an interesting way of bringing each theme to life.

I think that this is a great idea, it would fit well with the site.

I think that there should be an extra section for RPG/Mafia sign ups to make it easier to know what's what.
A subforum for sign ups sounds like a good idea too.

This may seem trivial, but I think in the list of Gifts people can give in the Gift Shop, there should be a Cupcake. I want to send people cupcakes and write "Would you like a cupcake, love?" like 2p!England.

I think there was some confusion over which emotes might have always been there and which were recently added. I think it was assumed majority of the Zelda related ones were always there before.

I don't think this could be accomplished since all the gold is handled through a separate plugin and is not really a part of the forum themes. It does allow for multiple currencies but that would probably just complicate things without any need.

Hmm, not too sure if another section is needed just for that. I seem to have a hard enough time getting the admin to bend on any newer forums already. There seems to be a general idea that if a section is not going to be heavily used then it is only taking up space.

I have been open to suggestion for other things to add to the shops. When they were opened I made this thread just so people could send some ideas in. I have been thinking of adding in some random stuff in the gift shop like good musician, etc.

Is there any way to organise the emotes list into groups or anything? It's become extremely cluttered what with the upload feature being present. Grouping them into themes that fit together (eg. Zelda, Doctor Who) would be nice.

I was actually thinking that we needed a new emote category. In the market, they let you choose which of the two directories--"Generic Smilies" and "Imported Smilies"--to upload it to, but for some reason, only half of the uploaders know better than to put it under "Imported Smilies". I think just creating a new directory called something along the lines of "Market-Uploaded Smilies" or "Purchased Smilies" and transferring all of the already uploaded smilies under that would hepl to organize it. And make that directory where all following smilies will be uploaded to by default, and provide no option for them to be uploaded to the other directories. The lack of organization on the uploaders' part is just rather bothersome, in my onion, and it wouldn't take too much work to fix.

Hmm...I'm still advocating the idea of a Zelda Dungeon video competition. While my own group has reached very, very little success, I feel a full-scale blowout of news would attract so many people just for the gold. :)

One idea I think would be good is some sort of 100% completion app. There could be an app for each game, or one app with all of them in.
The way this would work would be that there would be sections for Pieces of Heart, trading sequence items etc. In each section would be all of the respective items, with a screenshot, details on how to obtain and a checkbox/radio button.
These would allow the user to say they had done that bit, thereby making it easier to track progress.
I could probably create something for PC, but I don't have an Android device, or a Mac so I can't really develop for mobile.

This really does need to be taken into consideration. It certainly has the potential for great things. A wider means of attraction is what is needed.

There is an option to upload smilie category that is just not turned on. Actually forming them into categories the old fashioned way required an admin.

The competitions are somewhat slowing down and I think a video competition might have the smallest amount of interest overall. There have been a few suggestions for them in the past, it is just that not many have gotten on board for it so far.

Sounds interesting, only thing is that we need someone to make that and I am not too sure who can and will accomplish it.
