That'll be up to Belazor. :hmmm:

Also, I read the complaints regarding the reset. Looking at it now, this is something that should've been discussed with the GFX community before agreeing to it, and I apologize for that. Didn't think about it or that we might receive some negative feedback. Is this something that you guys really want, to revert back to the old counter? I don't mind either way, but I realize that this is all about the GFX community and what you guys prefer. So I would need to see some responses from others and see what they think as well. I know that the SOTW is a huge part of this community and I just want you guys to be okay with how things are set up, etc. The current displayer is something we'd have to stick with for the meantime until DBT makes some adjustments this summer. We've already talked about it a few weeks back.

Since everyone here was discussing about the sotw history, I've been meaning to ask you guys about a main gallery for the site actually, rather than having to upload outside of FFF. So this is pretty awesome. Would everyone be able to update the gallery or can we select a few individuals?

Though Belazor said he'll see if he can fix the old SOTW box this week (which would then bring back the sotw history, I'm assuming). Just a heads up. Still, a main gallery would be nice to have nonetheless.

I fixed it.

BTW~

Did anyone get a laugh at the prospect of a guy claiming he *fixed* something? :hmm:

Like how guys stereotypically *never* ask for directions. :hmmm:

Ah, nvm. I thought it was funny. :grin:

Just a little note regarding where to host images etc... We're working on a product that you guys might find useful for that, which could potentially be integrated into the forum. Have a look here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/dbtgallery.php?gal=gallery

That looks cool. :ohshit:

@Big Casino, I hadn't read it yet, have now. At the moment, I guess we'll wait to see how this news turns out, http://www.finalfantasyforums.net/t...eedback-amp-Suggestions?p=1007931#post1007931 aside from that, I honestly also don't mind scrambling through the old threads to find the entries if it's what'd make people happier. =]

Like Mits said though, it's easy to just revert back if the counter is an issue, however I don't know if it might be, if the SOTW history might be added back? Either way, I'm fine with whatever.
Richard B Riddick, I did read your post about fixing it yourself, however, I don't really think people would just hand out the codes for the forum for someone else to fix? :gasp: Either way, it's really not up to me to accept or decline anything, so... :wacky: Hope you understand.

If I "fixed it", I would probably strip out the javascript, session tracking & dynamic page content & display it as a static page.

It doesn't need to be intergrated into vbulletin unless it has functionality. Considering it doesn't do anything other than display images, there's no point in user authentication, etc.

What DBT is working on has the potential to be a lot better.

:wacky:

As for "super secret codes" I already have vbulletin forum & suite, etc. Its not really a big deal?

In case you're like 70% of the people here who take everything 150% too seriously...

I WAS somewhat JOKING, btw.

I doubt many would trust me to do it without being shifty eyed and overly suspicious about it. As if... I had ulterior motives or something ridiculous & lame like that. :britt:

Paranoid ppl, ftl~

Attention note: The auto resize for the forum has been edited to 600pixels in width, this means that signatures you make for A/SOTW (withing limit 500x350px) will no longer be resized automatically, YAY for those who were annoyed by it. :lew: The signatures will now be displaying in full quality when viewing SOTW votings!

Birthweek SOTW!: Upcoming guidelines, this saturday, the signature of the week will count towards Birthweek. We're hoping to get many entries as this is not just a SOTW competition, it's about BW as well! Check back soon for the guidelines!!

Well, apparently I'm the forum "idiot" which is like calling Arnold Schwarzenneger anorexic.

The term "idiot" no longer holds meaning, no worries! :ness:

How many points does the winning SOTW/AOTW#8 entries receive? And the AOTW is separate points, right? their points aren't bunched together or nutthin' right? :huh:

@The Meddler, SOTW counts towards Birth Week points only, Cali. Shot Mits a PM with the point count, seeing I'm only receiving the entries and not actually going about the competitions. Will get back to you asap. :D

The Meddler & everyone else entering.

1st place = 300 points.
2nd place = 200 points.
3rd place = 100 points.

Note that we do need more than 5 entries in order for this point count to continue, something might change if we don't have enough entries. Most likely it might only be 1st place with only 3 entries. So hopefully, people enter before sunday morning!
