Yes thats right we know have a new site. I hope you will enjoy it. There are 3 main things you guys (as developers) will probably wish to know about, namely the game db, resource db and zfgcapi.

The game database you have probably seen; it allows you to host your games on our site (no more broken links!), in a organised manner. It also includes all the obvious features like comments/blog/gallery/etc.

The resource database is similar in style to the game database, except without a few of the more game specific features.

Finally ZFGC-API, as you will know if you read the description or previous topics about it, is a software library we are currently writing to allow you to access zfgc database in a limited way (for example so you can extract users avatars and use them in your game! Or give people rupees for completing your game!). With luck the first release of this should come out in the next few days, you may also notice a new tab in each game entry that allows you to manage this.

And of course as well as the development crap, we have all the regular stuff, news systems, contact systems, staff profiles, blah, blah, blah.

Enjoy.

Probably find another web developer. It's not hard to find people who are talented at creating Web 2.0 templates for sites, and the number of people familiar with the inner workings of SMF is pretty large.

There's such a double standard about religion in the modern world. Catholics can gather, wear white robes, and say "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti" and be considered normal.

But if my friends and I gather, wear black robes, and say  "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", we're considered cultists.

Everything is neat and all, but the staff profiles page seems to be lacking a little more than a few people.  I uploaded a resource of the Minish Cap spear Moblin and it was a little awkward to have to go back and add the download; I guess it makes sense though in that those who upload static images could probably just the preview screen, but then again I did not really look into how the stretching of images would effect that.  But yeah, the site is good, for some reason the squashing makes the forum feel roomy, etc.

Sweet, this is really nice! One problem I have is the text isn't black. It's fine in the Topic Summary that appears when you reply, though.

Ahh well, this is pretty damn sweet- much cleaner.  :)

I prefer the green tight butthole, the black is to imposing.

Woah, upload straight to the site? That's amazing! Excellent job guys!

Edit: Maybe I missed something, but why is the Community Project in the archive?

Seems nice so far. I'm actually rather fond of how squished everything is. It's cosy, I guess.

I especially love how the copyright is 2007 to 2007, as well. Classy. :P

EDIT: Wouldn't that navigation bar at the top look better if it stretched across to the end of the welcome notice? It just kind of stops in the middle of nowhere right now. It lines up with the advertisement on most pages, but not the forum, and I think it would just look better in general if it ignored the advertisement everywhere.

Also, you used the wrong "your" on the "Advertise Here" page. It should be "you're".
