Oh yes, please add a link back to the main site to the top of the forum pages (maybe "the Seikens" on the banner?). I always find myself copy/paste/editing the forum URL these days to get to the main site.. ^-^;

There is a "Board Index" link right under the banner.

Uhm, I meant the main Seikens site, not the board.

Yes, exactly :)

Also, I tried recoloring the 'hot topic old/new' icons using the colors of an SD3 rabilion. Sheexy would probably do a better job of it using the real sprites, but if you want you can use these to replace the red ones for now:
*removed*

Edit: And then I got the sprites from Spriters-Resource and did the whole thing myself. The original rabites had an extra white stripe on them (accidental?), so I redid those as well. Voilá:
Image Image
Image Image

It makes me wonder though where Sheexy got the round drop part of these icons. It matches neither the SoM nor SD3 ones.. *huh

Thanks Kimiko, I was going to fix the rabilion too. But got too busy with other things in the board.

Hard refresh the board and you will see rabilions now

Edit: Added Minicity links, for those who want to make the seiken city to grow even more

Maybe you should have the other icons in the imageset.cfg point to Mana themed images as well. I've seen a few default ProSilver icons left here and there.

Hmm.. How about a magic rope Image for the logout icon (escape from dungeon), the Flammie drum Image for the home icon (fly to another part of the world), and a puipui grass Image for the FAQ (cures confused status)?
Oh, and a ??? seed Image for the user control panel icon (class change item).

I think that piece of candy came from one of the SwoM menu icons.

Those are awesome ideas Kimiko, they look really good too. :)

Now we just need to replace the member's icon. I was thinking some of the magic that Purim uses in SoM has little people icons, but I think they should be static not animated. Maybe Image or Image

I vote yes, it's better I think, more clear and more "readable"
But I want my "ranking" back ! :-)

If you want to go with the magic icons, SD3 has a lot of those too:
Speed Up: Image
Protect Up: Image
Life Booster: Image
Counter Magic: Image
..just to give some examples.

Some of Carlie's armor is cute too: Image Image

And then there are the spirit statues.. There are so many possibilities.. ^-^;

I've made icons for sticky and sticky+hot topics too:
Image Image
Lime slime and cherry slime from SwoM. The only difference between this lime slime and the one we had is a minute color difference.

And then these to replace the print and mail icons?
Image Image
Both are items from SwoM.
