Graphical special statuses implemented!

So, we have finally implemented the graphical version of special statuses for HeroesPortal citizens. Please enter your "Castle" through the Citizen section and check that everything is displayed correctly.
If something or someone has been forgotten, you can complain to magister Gorbik. Otherwise, you may direct your thanks to magisters Sombreus and Ayreon. In our Tavern, the special statuses are also marked by small badges under the coat of arms.
Here you can discuss this novelty, and here is a single image of all HeroesPortal special statuses. Soon we will also open a special section: "Honorary Citizens of the Portal", which will contain lists of everyone who have earned a special status on our Portal.

Right now we are redesigning your "Castle" profiles, so that the new statuses would fit better in there. Special statuses for year 2006 have been awarded, just as we promised earlier. Of course, you may still check if we forgot something. ;)
