Ryu Gaia kindly pointed out that Tapatalk, the current owners of Zetaboards, are forcing a conversion for all Zetaboards products into Tapatalk, their own format. There's a lot of uncertainly about what this will actually mean and what it'll look like, so I'll kind of update as I go.

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tapatal ... 39965.html
This seems to be a helpful topic someone made, so to go through it for some of the highlights...

We're told here that existing CSS and themes will be grandfathered into the new board, so that would be nice if so.
*However, on the FAQ they say "
- Will our old skins be on our new board and will we still be able to use them?
No. It is a different system on the new platform, your old skins will not work there. You have access to the CSS on the new platform. You will find a good number of useful codes in this forum:"

A significant change appears to be that you won't be able to use linked avatars anymore. :okay:

It's still pretty early, so we'll see what the outcome ends up being. If they offer a database download, that would make it fairly easy to migrate to another service altogether. If they iron out the flaws in Tapatalk and it ends up working out, that would be nice. We did transfer from Invisionfree to Zetaboards, and the Zetaboards head is apparently working on making this transition smooth as well.

Our Illuminati will convene, our ears are open to your feedback or ideas, and ofc, once we get a preview test board, I'll be sure to share it with all of you.

May the blessings of the Almighty be with us. :kraden:

This feels like a. End of an era. Everything is charging. But no linked Avis is a bit sad.

Just do what I do and shamelessly screenshot your avatar and then reupload it with the saved image button.

Someone teach me photoshop.

As long as they don't kill the history of this board/don't give us time to archive and transfer its history, I'm fine with changes.

Good luck figuring it out, Satty & Kraden's Illuminati.

Their logic was that linked avatars are too unstable, and cited photobucket going down and leaving broken links in its wake. Personally I think that sounds like an issue for users to solve themselves, but oh well.

Another reason, since it appears they're trying to make things more smartphone friendly, is to avoid having to load huge avatars on data plans, which would be a much more sensible reason.

i'll start drafting our premium membership benefits now that tapatalk will let us pay to be specialer than everyone else. it will include a more likely chance of salvation being granted by Kraden and access to a special board where we go to be smarter, funnier and kinder than the rest of the ToK.
If you really loved Kraden, you'd draw him.

The Tapatalk support forum doesn't look bad. It's screen size responsive and has a much cleaner design than Zetaboards.
