1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Find, and post photos that you think should represent projectDLP. I'm creating forum themes for all the houses/modernizing the look of the current dlp layout, so give me:

    Ravenclaw
    Hufflepuff
    Gryfindor
    Slytherin

    and last but not least Dark Lord Potter. Alternatively, Light Lord Potter :s for those of you that would be into that idea.

    Images should be royalty free, if you've snapped it I want it. Open-source images, no copyrighted shit cause I don't want to get into trouble for using it.

    Clarification for people like Ash: If you find it, thats cool. If you have taken it yourself, even better. Or drawn, or whatever. I just want opensource.

    Also, tell me if I was to do it, what you'd like to see on a welcome screen, supply images and content ideas.


    Edit: Also, liking this post is cool and all... but I'd really like some input. I'll have some concept ideas up by tomorrow night, maybe post hex for the colors you think would be right for each house as well.

    I spent quite a bit looking at images, and it's really damn hard to find something I want to look at every day.

    I'm just gonna post a few, as I don't know what we're going for in each house theme.

    I'm fairly positive I don't want people in the house themes, and I'd like them to be dark red, blue, etc. I do like the idea of text in a book, for Ravenclaw, perhaps. Or we could use the diadem, cup, locket, sword. That would look good.

    Whenever there's more content it would be easier to decide. I've just got a skeleton of what I want to do done right now, so sorry, no concept to post yet :( Just keep looking. Trying to get that drawfag lulu to do some artwork for us :s

    Yeah, no people. This isn't SIYE I'm aiming for. I want something like the first one. Thats cool. I already have an idea for that for the welcome page.

    Post hex, btw. I'm colorblind. I can't differentiate between blue and dark blue. and red and dark red, etc. all that well.

    These are kind of cool, the artist also has the Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw versions.

    These are shirt designs for Woot! so I'm sort of assuming they're copyrighted, but since I don't know jack about copyright I figured I'd link them anyway.

    I would like to point out that the mascot of Ravenclaw is an eagle, not a raven. Yes, I know how un-intuitive that is, but that's what it is.

    Take a look at these. Open source and pretty good. Thats also the kind of thing that I would like if I had the choice. Something simple and clean cut but vibrant like these.

    Anyway hope it gives you some ideas.

    You might want to consider doing Durmstrang or Beauxbatons as well. Or the MoM, or Death Eaters or Aurors or the Department of Mystery. It doesn't have to be solely Hogwarts themed.

    Well, post pics for those themes then. Those house ones you posted were excellent. I think I will use them.

    Thanks to everyone else. I'll have something up for everyone to see one day. I had time to work on them, and now I don't have so much time to work on them, so just kinda hoping to gather pics so that I can bust them out all in one day (shouldnt be too hard).

    I also found this in my travels, probably not what you're looking for but still pretty damn awesome.
