1. Hey Guest,

    Are you handy with Photoshop? Do you feel the DLP Anakin logo is tired and old? Do you want to win a special as of yet undetermined prize? Join the DLP Banner Photoshop Competition! Fame, fortune, and the respect of your peers await those that enter. Sadness, despair, and a deep self-loathing await those that do not.

    Enter the competition.

    And honestly quite ugly. However, they work, and the data was ported over from vBulletin successfully.

    The templates will be updated over the next few weeks, so please do not report cosmetic issues for now. If there is missing data, permission issues, or bugs in the implementation, please post them in the DLP Feedback and Improvement forum.

    Sorry it took so long. With the rollout of Social Groups the forums are nearly at parity to our old forums and in many ways more advanced. I hope you now enjoy the new DLP as much as the old. :)

    Update: There are reports of some missing content, so I'll be disabling them and rerunning the import.

    That's awesome, I'm really happy to see this. Just one question, are the privacy settings still enabled? I was able to verify that I cannot access the groups while signed out, but if a group required permission from the group creator to access originally is there any way to determine if that is still the case now?

    If a group was marked private before, it is still private. Go to the group, click on "Owner Tools", and edit the group to look at settings.

    There's another level of permissions groups can use, where the group is public but doesn't allow discussions to be viewed unless you're a member. Groups can be invite-only.

    Wonderful, thank you for the answer, the peace of mind, and of course the hard work to bring the groups back again.

    Sesc noted that pending members were applied as full members. I'll be making that change and re-importing.

    Are group avatars/banners one of those cosmetic issues we're not supposed to worry about for now? I tried changing them and it doesn't seem to work. Asking for clarification.

    Edit: Just tried it and made some changes. Try it again and let me know, otherwise please make a thread for me as below.

    Add a thread in the feedback forum for me and I'll take a look when I'm back at my desktop.
