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.

    One link in between Profile Page and Follow on the avatar blurb, two buttons on top/bottom right of conversation page and one link when you click on your inbox... I'd say it has.

    Is there any way to get to a screen like the old User CP, where I can see any threads I'm subscribed to that have been updated?


    Everything is different and scary.

    When browsing the forums by using "new activity," there used to be a button on every post that allowed you to just jump towards the first unread post of a thread. Is that still around?

    Sorry for being a bother, trying to figure out my way around here again.


    Also, I miss my custom title. ;_;

    Yeah, custom titles are a low priority thing, but they're a part of what makes DLP, DLP.

    Still trying to find my way around, but things are looking spiffy enough so far.

    @ScottPress Agreed. I've ported over existing "staff titles" from vBulletin where there wasn't a collision with a current custom title. In vB we had 2 titles and HTML in titles, now we have 1 title and no HTML (except in titles coming from the general user title ladder, e.x. Alchemist).

    I may be simply going blind, but the font colour during login is just a shade too light for me.

    Any plan to fix the font size? The new one wastes far too much space for my taste.

    This is definitely new and scary, but first impression is it looks great. I'm looking forward to familiarising myself with it better. Cheers for all the hard work, Lord Ravenclaw (and anyone else who work on the upgrade).

    As I was writing this I got a notification that a new post had been submitted and could load it up - this is awesome.

    Have to say, I am really liking the changes so far and have to give the admins and people involved putting work into it much love for it. This is seriously awesome to be on Xenforo.

    You're welcome to submit your feedback in the Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    As an aside, I don't really care for the implication that font sizes are "broken." As it turns out people have different preferences, so what seems fine to me (and Xiph0, Jon, etc.) doesn't appeal to you. That's not broken, that's preference. It isn't obvious to me what you dislike. So, try again. Submit some feedback with examples of what you think wastes space and then we'll have a conversation.

    Thanks for the report, it's been fixed.

    There is actually a Xenforo Addon that lets users adjust font and margins client side, without impact on server performance. Don't know the cost off hand, and it could be free but at worst it would be a onetime cost of like 35 dollars or some such.

    Or they can install Stylish. We could use that money much more effectively elsewhere.

    After browsing almost exclusively mobile on DLP for the last year and having to deal with the shitty way vBulletin handled drop down menus I have to say this is awesome.

    Getting alerts and being able to load them easily, knock them off swiftly and knowing they're there in the first place?

    I can't express how good this is.

    Can anyone confirm that this isn't a feature already for me? I'll see about rewriting my plugin if it doesn't already exist.

    Unless there's anything more pressing to implement, perhaps? :D

    Posting is so smooth now, especially the multi-quote system. Great work Raven & co..
