Hey fellow clan members, it's everyone's favorite shameless Zelda graphic thief talented clan artist here with a few words about the look of the forum, and yes, that little ladybug perched on the Home button.

I recently gained access to the system for editing the forum images, and I've decided I'd like to try my hand at making this forum look nicer and more Zelda-y. Zephyriphoenix recently located a treasure trove of item icons from Skyward Sword (link below), and I will continue to scour the internet searching for pictures to slap together source material for the new graphics.

I'm posting this here as a heads-up, and to ask for any ideas, suggestions, or delicious, delicious art base graphics you might have. I'd like this site to have a look that works for everyone, and I haven't planned much out yet, so I'm very open to suggestions. And no, that ladybug sitting on the plain old home button is not a final image, or anything close. I altered the image to test the system, and it seems to work very well so far.

IDEAS:
*Please provide some, for I seem to currently be incapable of conscious thought*

LINKS:
Skyward Sword Item Icons

I have a few ideas, but there just for the top button bar and there going to be of the similar idea of just laying the icons next to the Calendar, FAQ, ...etc buttons like with the lady bug.
I thought that icons that are similar to what the button says was kinda a good idea so i went with that. If you don't like any that's fine am just putting out suggestions.

- I like the Home button looking like it is. But if you want my opinion It could be anything really.
-Calendar button could have the Phantom Hourglass or Ocarina of Time.
Spoiler:
 
-FAQ's are helpful so a shield icon, or bottle maybe? I feel like this one can be anything.
Spoiler:
 
-Search, should have the Lens of Truth, because anything that looks like a magnifying glass is practically tailored to the word 'search'.
Spoiler:
 
-For Members button I was thinking the Bomber Notebook from MM.
Spoiler:
 
-Groups could be one of the Title Deeds also from MM.
Spoiler:
 
-The Profile button feels like it should have one of the tunics.
Spoiler:
 
-For Messages you could have a closed letter for new unread messages and an open one for no new messages.
Spoiler:
 
-And the Log In & Log Out buttons can have a small keys over it.
Spoiler:
 

A lot of these are from different Zelda games. I don't know if you plan on using just one set theme or if you want to mix them together.

How do you like the new menu bar?

Thank you very much for the ideas i liked all of them, but thought that navi made more sense for answering questions.

Wow, I like the way they came out!
Of course! Navi makes the most sense for the FAQ button. I also like what you did with Farore's Wind.

I totally forgot about suggesting an image for the Register Button. I 'm not sure what to put, something you sign up for, Gerudo's Membership Card? I'm not sure maybe something simple but important like the Triforce or Zelda's head?
Spoiler:
 

I also just had an epiphany for the Profile button. I think a Pictograph fits the Profile button more but that's just my opinion you don't have to change it if you don't want to.

I think i like the gerudo membership card for the register button, i had been wondering what to put. Sadly i dont think i can have it flash but ill see what i can do. As for the pictobox, i have that set for the gallery, which most cant see for 2 reasons: 1. theres almost nothing on it yet; 2. i only have 20mb total for the forums unless we pay monthly, so i cant allow others to upload to it. right now its where the images for the forum facelift (or at least some of them) are going.

Secret buttons?! Never would have thought. Is there one that takes you to a page that says, "Hazzah! You have found the Triforce, Rejoice!"?

there is now a secret button that links a a page such as you described. It is possible for people to access it, however it is also unlikely that anyone not searching and being very careful will ever find it.

Sweet! Only question I have is, is it on a specific page like lets say under messages or is it constantly there on every page/thread?

I'll be a tester then lol. I think I understand your hint, if it is one. If not I'll have to check every page with button links! This is going to drive me crazy like Crazy Tracy.

congratulations to those who found it!

also the gallerey button just apears on the top row if you have access, which i believe only admins do (im actually not the only admin anymore, although im not giving adminship to people based on rank, just to those i feel i can completely trust, since there is so much that can be abused)
