    Is this a fact that DP is no longer DoFollow?

    Why the change?

    I won't be renewing my subscription if it goes like this. I realise DP doesn't probably need customers like me. It's probably making so much money in so many ways. It's a shame in my point of view.

    Where have you been? It's been that way since July 2011 (see when this thread was started). :)

    Maybe I have been a bit stupid. However, I have a thread here probably less than a year old where it was DoFollow. And if i am not mistaken someone from DP replied confirming this. So I had 2 DoFollow links on my signature as well as 2 links that were NoFollow, we had a lengthy discussion about it. Unless I am imagining things, that discussion happened. I can't find that thread now. Anyway, doesn't matter anymore. I have wasted my money subscribing. You live and learn.

    In the first message in this thread Shawn has a link to the account preferences/settings where you can supposedly edit your signature etc. However, now the site has moved to using Xenforo the option to edit your signature doesn't appear (unless you get 3 likes, I think?). It's a shame that this option isn't available to new members any longer as if the links are nofollow anyway I wouldn't have thought it very likely that the signatures would be abused/spammy, as they might have been before.

    Yeah, I guess I've seen nofollow blogs that have been spammed before now so I suppose you're right.
