The Navbar seems to clogged with too much information and should be boiled down to the basics. My suggestion is to make a sidebar. if you agree to this, I can assist you.

Spoiler:
First, make a widget with this HTML code:

<div id='cssmenu'>
<ul>
<li class='has-sub'><a href='#'><span>Getting Started</span></a>
<ul>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/t132-new-student-packet-read-if-new'><span>New Student Packet</span></a></li>
<li class='active last'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/t291-rules-of-the-dojo'><span>Rules</span></a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class='has-sub'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f25-hunting-grounds'><span>Hunting Grounds</span></a>
<ul>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f44-chaos-wars'><span>Chaos Wars</span></a></li>
<li class='has-sub'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f51-dorm-wars'><span>Dorm Wars</span></a>
<ul>
<li class='last'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f45-team-registration'><span>Team Registration</span></a></li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class='has-sub'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f26-role-play-zone'><span>Role Play Zone</span></a>
<ul>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f38-character-profiles'><span>Character Profiles</span></a></li>
<li class='last'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f37-recruiting-for-a-story-line'><span>Recruiting for a Story Line</span></a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class='has-sub'><a href='#'><span>Student Resources</span></a>
<ul>
<li><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f15-deck-constructor'><span>Deck Constructor</span></a></li>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/post?f=3&mode=newtopic'><span>Make a Question or Comment</span></a></li>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f47-ruling-room'><span>Rulings Room</span></a></li>
<li class='active'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f1-student-social-center'><span>Student Social Center</span></a></li>
<li class='active last'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f31-tutorial-center'><span>Tutorial Center</span></a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class='last'><a href='https://dragontrainingdojo.forumotion.com/f17-dojo-tournaments'><span>Tournaments</span></a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Then, place it on the right side of the forum. You may use any title you want.

Then, go into the CSS menu and add this CSS Code:

@charset 'UTF-8';
/* Starter CSS for Flyout Menu */

#cssmenu {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
border: 0;
}
#cssmenu ul,
#cssmenu ul li,
#cssmenu ul ul {
list-style: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
#cssmenu ul {
position: relative;
z-index: 597;
float: left;
}
#cssmenu ul li {
float: left;
min-height: 1px;
line-height: 1em;
vertical-align: middle;
}
#cssmenu ul li.hover,
#cssmenu ul li:hover {
position: relative;
z-index: 599;
cursor: default;
}
#cssmenu ul ul {
visibility: hidden;
position: absolute;
top: 100%;
left: 0;
z-index: 598;
width: 100%;
}
#cssmenu ul ul li {

}
#cssmenu ul ul ul {

}
#cssmenu ul li:hover > ul {

}
#cssmenu ul ul {

}
#cssmenu ul li {

}
#cssmenu ul {

}
#cssmenu ul ul {

}
#cssmenu ul ul li {

}

If you have done this successfully, you will have been able to have made the sidebar. It should look something like this: https://i.imgur.com/6dS6Jwg.png. Thank you for listening to my suggestion and my proposed solution.

Another thing I hope to suggest is that to remove the widgets on the left side of the forum and move them to the right. having widgets on both sides decreases the forum width, which can increase the amount of space to read and paste images. (I discovered that the imgur image from DN doesn't fully paste on.)

Go into Admin Panel-Display-Colors-CSS Stylesheet.
As for what i noticed: Your CSS is crammed like nuts and even includes the basic CSS, which was already included in the forum. You don't need 3000 lines of CSS when it was already set in the forum you created. All this CSS prevents you from even entering additional codes, including the one to modify the sidebar's design. I probably don't need to make a suggestion on what you should do.

Note: I added a quick-reply box to make it easier to post messages.
