Quick feedback thread

  • I'll stick with MyBB xD reputation or not


    oh that's too bad, ok than


    Hey just an idea for your embeded irc client, I usually use kiwiirc.com's client free easy to configure and mobile friendly, my phone is an older android and though i have an irc client on it kiwiirc works as well and doesn't require flash or amything of the sort. Did i mention it's free? Cause it's really easy too if you're considering it just say so and I'll pm ya'll ahow to. Apologies for the text on my phone atm :P

  • for the mean time, I'll just say you have a better theme than ZeldaDungeon.

    I hope we can eventually get a flexible theme that will give no problems to mobile and tablets visitors that won't favour tapatalk. Since ZD changed their colours now I feel like it is too similar to the Look of ZU. I think it is great we have a colour that sets us apart and has been consistent for a good amount of time.

    I like the idea of changing themes to a person's liking at the bottom of your guys website. It's unique. :3

  • I stopped playing Zelda for a long time, then thought to start again, so I used this thread. I am a huge fan of Zelda series.
    Anyways, Zelda is too famous.

  • The Big three, Mario, Zelda, Pokémon.


    Yeah! It's really the big threes!
    Mario is the great! Super Mario!
    Zelda of course! In every word, it is great!
    Pokemon are very nice, exploring, battling.. Wow!

  • I personally cannot stand Mario. it is the same thing everytime. . . . . ..But If kaynil wants to make a theme logo for the forums, that has "The Legend of Hyrule" with the Pokecavern logo next to it, like the zelda one. We can make an identical theme for the pokemon side.

    Hahah.
    Mario is alright in my books, but I understand what you mean.

    Hahaha I was typing a similar idea on the other thread, haha. Cool to see we're on the same channel.
    I was thinking in 3 skins actually. They all are basically the same, just the header/logo changed. The default one could be a simple neutral one, either with a bit of everything or with devoid of direct references to zelda, pokemon, etc.
    Then we enforce the pokemon logo one for the PKM related areas, the LoH for the Zelda areas and if you add other Franchises, we could do the same. Though this would lock us into just using this style.

  • Hey two things,


    For one, I notice you guys are still using Times New Roman, or similar for your font for your messages for the most part and it just kind of makes everything seem off. I noticed this from the start, so I was wondering if you guys ever considered changing to something like, Arial, or Courier New. You don't need custom files for those fonts just the code. There's also a few similar backup fonts that you can use in case a certain browser doesn't support it. (I've got that below if you want to see it)

    Code
    font-family: Arial,Helvetica, sans-serif; /*Arial*//*Courier New*/font-family:Courier New, Courier, Monaco, monospace; /*Courier New*/


    Also there's a deal with the "Top" link it is just a little hard to get to. So if you want you could do something like have a button like s0pjmskazo.ico this. For CSS and such you just need to have this added anywhere on the main index.php file since it is the root file for all the pages it seems. Just add it to any global part of the website.


    HTML
    <a href='javascript:scroll(0,0);' id='goupbutton' style='position:fixed;bottom:30px;right:35px;'><img src='http://www.iconj.com/ico/s/0/s0pjmskazo.ico' height='28' width='28'/></a>


    If you guys want to do the second one let me know cause I made up the arrow button and am using some random host for it so I can just send you guys the actual file if you want


    Edit: I changed link for the top of the page situation so that it works better and used some JS instead of trying to link to an ID

  • Does anyone actually use the Media Gallery or Resource Manager here? Might be worth trying to add some content there, to not make them look so dead...


    I'll add something here and there I'm not really clear on what it is or its functions though


    But if it's an image thing I have a couple dozen wallpapers I took laying all over the place if they need to be populated

  • Sorry guys, I haven't much time to check in depth , but I appreciate your suggestions and reports.

    Thanks. I find the current font fine so unless it is a big issue I rather leave it like this.


    Thanks, no sweat, if we implement it we would make sure to have the file directly in our server. It's just better that way. I don't think I'd implement a fixed floating thing, but I can change the bottom url to have an icon if that makes it easier.


    Maybe later on when I understand better how to ensure it will behave no matter the device resolution I can try some float.


    There's this which is more of a bug right now. But the Chat Popup option leads to a page that is apparently inaccessible for a regular user.

    Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention.
    I will look up that. Since we can use the chat just fine, I suppose the permission error comes from the page url itself. Hopefully it is a quick fix.


    Does anyone actually use the Media Gallery or Resource Manager here? Might be worth trying to add some content there, to not make them look so dead...

    I am planning to simplify the categories of the media manager and promote its use.


    For now, basically if it is Zelda images and videos, consider using it instead of opening a thread. I will try to come up with some fun activities and medals to entice its use.



    As for the resource one. I have to get back to you guys. anyway, I will ytry to add some tutorials and dispel the confusion. I think that is what stops most people.


    Adding Webm to the Resource option list of accepted formats might be a good move.


    I haven't heard about this format. Mind elaborating what kind of files are those and how would we benefit from adding them? :-)

  • I haven't heard about this format. Mind elaborating what kind of files are those and how would we benefit from adding them? :)


    They don't benefit you exactly. But it's a video format (like MKV or MP4 or AVI) but it is much more widely compatible with more browsers and places like 4chan, and Imgur use them to hold short .GIF like videos. And a good amount of the time the codecs take up less space then competitors.

    Well if you want one that can behave in obscure resolutions and the file to be hosted on your website I can work that out for you guys, so that it'll be in a proper ratio with the site. It shouldn't be too difficult.


    Thanks. I find the current font fine so unless it is a big issue I rather leave it like this.


    Yeah I understand, I just am well enough versed in CSS and HTML for the Times new Roman font to grind on my nerves, on top of that it makes pretty much any website seem unfinished since it's pretty much any server's default font.

    That was the kind of thing I meant by 'benefit' if it compress things better, is becoming used by more popular sites and the like, then it is definitely to our advantage we are compatible with it.


    I'd see what I can do. I have basically been in hiatus all of May but I am hoping that past the E3 I should be all sorted up and ready to resume all the things I have pendant. :)

    Thanks for the offer, for now I just rather see how the swap of text by image works, even if it is not a fancy arrow. I'll definitely keep you in mind for when I finally sit to do this.

    Yeah, I know what you mean about it being the default font and how it is not a style that makes things easier to read.
    Xenforo, the platform we're using doesn't use Times New Roman for its default skin, which is the base to build any skin, so if our current layouts are using it, I think it was very likely a deliberate choice.


    Once again, I really appreciate all the useful feedback we've gotten and I will fix these bugs.
    Thank you guys!
