    Registration is open again after more than a month of being offline.

    New members will register into a probationary group known as "Hogwarts Applicants." After an undisclosed period of time or worthy contributions they will become Registered Users.

    Hogwarts Applicants members have somewhat restricted access to the site and several pieces of functionality that have the potential to disrupt site operations.

    Please be advised, if you are found to be a negatively contributing member you may end up as an Applicant again.

    Add.: To speed up the process, new members may visit the hidden Sorting Hat forum, and apply for full membership. - Sesc

    So; Your aim is to "reduce" the number of people willing to financially contribute to the DLP Forum?

    Negative contributions being what, exactly? Trolling? Stupid behavior?

    Fucking great to be appreciated, isn't it? We get fucked over to the point that we have to close registrations. We set a new policy in place to stop it from happening, and you want to run off at the fucking mouth?

    You know what, I don't care, bro. See you. Don't come back.

    We didn't want your dollar anyway.

    Edit: Lens of Sanity went with this one, since it turned up as a dope. If its a mistake, Lens, you can email one of us and we can talk.

    You know what? Fuck you.

    I can support this site alone, though there are dozens of other donors more than willing to help us out.

    Yeah. I aim to improve the quality of content and reduce the fucking spambots you cocksucking, trolling motherfucker.

    I wish he wasn't banned, I honestly want to understand his reasoning. I'm more confused than ticked off, honestly.

    Someone managed to make Raven of all people angry. You don't see that every day.

    I believe this is a good idea, hopefully it'll stop the constant spambots. I do believe that with the rego closed we avoided the little bits of downtime that would regularly happen and result in timeouts, anyone still getting those?

    We don't need it either.

    DLP is more than a website about fanfiction. We've made bonds with each other, we're friends, we're a community, all that sappy sort of shit that we totally don't like to talk about, but it still totally happened.

    Jon. You'll always be my bottom-bitch. If that means we fork out money every so often, so be it.


    Totally reminded me to set up the payment subscriptions too.

    Hey, Just a few quick questions. How do you find out if your a Hogwarts applicant? If you are a hogwarts applicant what type of restrictions are put into place? And, wow I don't think I've ever seen the moderators rage like that.

    Under your name you'll see a little title. In your case It's Second Year. In an applicants case it'll say just that.

    This would have been a better choice:



    @Kang: It was nice knowing you but it appears you will be leaving now. D:

    Hogwarts applicants have "Hogwarts Applicant" as their user class (the bit underneath your user name).

    His argument, stupid as it may be, was that it would somehow scare away people that would donate to help support the forum and website.

    Because somehow being a member = automatically donating.

    He also seemed to be operating under the misconception that dlp is floated only by donations.

    or something like that. that's what I got out his little post there.
