    Welcome to the new DarkCraft website!

    We completed a huge update today, jumping from Xenforo version 1.1.3 to 1.4.5. Many new useful administrative features are available that will hopefully help us eliminate (entirely) spammers from the forum.

    We rebuilt the site based on a new style, but we'll be keeping the old style available through the style selector at the bottom-left of the corner. Beware that the "Darkcraft Classic" style was meant for Xenforo 1.1 and you'll encounter many visual glitches when using it. Namely an invisible post editor.

    Note: If you don't see the new style when logged in, you have to manually change over to the new style "DarkCraft v2" by using the style selector at the bottom left of the page.

    There are many other minor changes around the site. The post editor has been redone and we have access to a couple new BBCodes, which can be seen here. We'll be looking into new features to add into the site to make it a little more fun to use.

    Please leave your feedback in this thread! The site is new and there may be more changes over the next short while.

    This is a good looking website Mister Darq! I love it! :D
    Ps. Statuses don't show up on the front page any more. Can that be fixed?

    uhm... for some reason i still have the old style. i thought that would be fixed later but seeing the comments above it looks like im the only one with it and cant find the button to change it (either it isn't changed yet or im just a huge noob)

    MOD HALP MY PLISSSSS!

    edit: so just got a glimpse at the new skin by loging out... love it but whenever i log in, it switches back to the old version :(

    use the style selector at the bottom left to select "DarkCraft v2". I meant to mention this in the OP. will update!

    It was fairly time consuming to get the site set up the way it is now and I hadn't the time or inclination to do it before. It was in-fact difficult to find the time to do just this. demeris mentioned that the spam was getting terrible (and has been terrible for a long time), and I noticed that the newest Xenforo had some new spam fighting features. Queue license renewal and update! The change in style is because the creator of our last style didn't update it further than Xenforo 1.1, so we (mostly demeris and I) found a new one that we liked and felt fitting.

    its sposed to be in that same bar with "contact us" but on the left instead of right.

    you should also be able to find it under "preferences" if you click on your name in the upper right.

    the style is called "darkcraft *"

    Either you didn't get my message or just ignored it, but the link for "Vote 3" is broken. Mainly because they changed their website to mcserverlist.info instead of .com.
    Here is the new link: https://mcserverlist.info/vote/48

    You also need to update the information on the other voting sites such as the server ip, server version, and server tags. I think all of this might be a reason why we aren't getting the same amount of players online as we used to get.

    How is this in any way shape or form related to the update of the site? XD

    Its an issue ofc, but it does not belong here Cyber.

    You got the attention though, cuz thats what you wanted I guess... XD

    Are you referring to the "Recent status updates" on the home page? I see it there..
