    It's actually the new default layout for vb4 to get you even more excited!

    But yes, a great example of how much money vbulletin put back into their product line :)

    it looks pretty decent actually. A lot of things need tweaked but nothing wrong with its overall appearance imo

    they need to get away from the combinations of green that they use if you ask me

    Doesn't look all that bad, does it? To be fair, I honestly don't think BHW looks all that great, but who cares. Content = King.

    I prefer most of BHW's layouts 'cause the black color is easier on the eyes. Vbulletin's new layout style is why I won't be updating my forum unless a layout similar to the old version comes out. But yeah, DP has always looked awful.

    How can you say it looks good?

    First off the ergonomics ain't there. At least with the vb3 theme, everything was designed with usability in mind.

    Now with vb4, well thats another story. You have first a whole bunch of styles that DO NOT go together, silk icons with big ugly glossy buttons. 10 zillion different colours which all look the same and don't compliment one another as well as small hard to read fonts. Oh lets not forget that they forgot how to us font AA on photoshop.

    Honestly I think a designer at DP could do a better job.

    And to top it off, you have a nice big fat fugly font face for the logo with adsense chucked in stupid places to ensure CTR stays to a minimum.

    /end rant

    I wonder if Blackhatworld has something similar.
    Currently using BHW V2 Style.
    @About DP:
    I currently dislike the fact that the iTraders don't come easily to your eyes.
    Well it's DP :)

    Im getting used to it now I think.. one thing I had DP set to display blue before. How do I change the color back to blue now?

    Also can you change the color on BHW? Some days I read 5+ threads that have 50+ posts each.. black starts to hurt eyes.

    All I have to say is I hope BHW keeps the same style.

    At least they made their rss feeds clearly visible...
    ...so, who wants to start a webmasters forum ;)

    Personally, I think it is great that they are trying out new things. But you have to remember that new things always have bugs in them, so keep an eye out for the threads on here that explain how to get away with prosperous tricks.

    I always thought you could make your own forum just based on the people banned from DP,Wickedfire BHW and other such places.

    you could call it N00Bs.com or soemthing..

    if you steal this idea then please send me .05 for every member you get

    To me,as stated above, the forums looks cooler and I suggest that you guys focus on implementation because no matter how much you talk about DP, the admin is still making cash
