    Whether you call them Champions 🤩, Advocates 🌟, or Superusers 🏆, every community contains an elite group of members that carries 🏋 the community. They don't just drink the kool-aid 💧. They mix, chug, and swim 🏊‍♀️in the community kool-aid. Learn 🔢 four community management concepts about Superusers in less than 🕓 four minutes. 1. 90-9-1 Rule (aka "1% rule"): The 90-9-1 principle refers to the lopsided inequality of user engagement that 90% of users are lurkers 🙈, 9% of members contribute from time to time 🙉, and 1% of users 😸 account for almost all contributions. Superusers are the 1%. 2. Intrinsic Motivator: Motivation that comes from internal motivation💖, rather than any external rewards. This could be a sense of satisfaction 😃, pride 😤, ownership, loyalty, friendship 🤗, or other emotional and internal motivator. Long-term superusers 🏃 are wired to intrinsic motivation. Tapping into intrinsic motivation is key to providing new motivation for superusers. 3. Spiral of Silence: Be careful ⚠️, however, that your superusers don't overwhelm 🛑 the conversation which can lead to the Spiral of Silence: a theory that as the vocal minority becomes louder 📢, other members adopt the same views or fail to share opposing views. You'll need to privately manage this vocal minority, especially if they're negative 💢. 4. Work Out Loud 💬: An engagement practice for superusers to visibly share 🗣 their work online in your community. It offers opportunities for superusers and members to openly share 👯 their knowledge, generosity, purposeful discovery, and growth ✨. Usually entire point ✴️ of communities of practice.

    So what you're saying is that the ticket system in Commerce isn't suitable for you? Why not improve on that, and fix whatever needs fixing, instead of switching to a different platform? I'm fairly certain your needs aren't unique, and changes in that product will benefit others.

    Quick request if you have 2 minutes...

    Hi all, I have a request that will only take a few minutes of your time, and will give you something in return. We're finally getting around to creating books and guides to help new customers get comfortable on the Invision Community platform. I'm looking for a few positive quotes and 'soundbites' we can use on a few pages around the site, on social media and in these guides. Hopefully you've got nice things to say. @LaCollision gave us a very nice quote a while back. So things like: That sort of thing. If you have a specific use for Invision Community, then we'd love to hear from you. If you are happy to leave a comment, please also leave your name and URL to your site. If the site is safe for work, then we'll link back to it when using any quotes on our site and on social media. We get a fairly health bit of traffic so I'm sure you'll get a good number of click throughs too. If we get 20 useable quotes, I'll post an exclusive picture of Charles and Lindy holding a hotdog from 2008. I did not seek their permission before making this promise. Thanks for reading!

    Follow user by content type

    I wish there were a follow feature for the members by content type. E. g. only notifications on new articles of the member. The reason is that our power users write articles AND post in forum AND create blog entries AND upload images and all this daily and a lot. If I follow them I am overwhelmed with notifications that I am not interested in. But I am still interested in notifications for their articles.

    By the way @Mike John, I need this suggestion like ... yesterday. No pressure or anything. But totally lots of pressure. I am onboarding the biggest expansion my website has ever seen over the weekend - and they're all clubs. I'm getting 100+ new registrations every day and launched 4 new clubs in the past 24 hours, ever since Yahoo announced the limitation of Yahoo Groups.

    Sticky Notes (support topic)

    major bug would make it not work, you can remove the ability for the replies so it does not stop the app from working yes I understand that but I am human and I have a lot of stuff to do and sometimes I forget, and if you don't think it's thats great feel free to leave a review or send a report to get it removed from sale, Yeah this is a paid app but it's got no renewals nothing when IPS 5 comes out I will make it available for that too with no charge to you or anyone else and all these requests I added from a silly little plugin what sends 3 notes maximum to a massive application to send unlimited was all done for FREE as well to anyone who purchased it, So I think maybe 1 mistake on my part should be allowed

    That link looks pretty dead. If you want to display your Discord server on your website like a shoutbox or on an own site, you can embed it with widgetbot too https://docs.widgetbot.io/embed/ Looks pretty much like this https://disweb.dashflo.net/channels/299881420891881473/355719584830980096/ But to chat the users still have to go to the Discord website or open their app. I liked Jaxel's integration on XF, it had a feature who can use the chat as the bot. Anyway, bought this one just today and really like it. The Magic Invite is cool and the setup and configuration is MUCH easier than on XF :) Only a few more widgets would be nice, for example a list of channels or who is online. Until then I guess I'll just use the official Discord widget or try to make my own.

    When your customers buy or use your products, they will have many questions. They may have issues using the product, or they may have requests for future versions based on their needs. Managing and responding to those questions and requests quickly increases conversion, satisfaction and the likelihood or purchasing again. The statistics back this up. There is no doubt that unless you have a support community for your brand, you are not delivering the best experience for your customers and risk losing them to competitors that do. Building a support community around your product or service will positively drive your business across all departments from product development through sales and into customer support. Let's break it down and look at the key benefits for each department. Customer Service Encouraging your customers to visit your support community is the simplest way to reduce the cost of supporting your product or service. Creating a self-help culture allows other more experienced customers to offer assistance and troubleshoot any problems they have. 73% of customers fall in love with a brand because of friendly customer service representatives.** Quite often, new customers encounter the same issues that would flood customer support if they were all channelled to your support desk. For example, consider a company that produces an internet-enabled smart device. Less technically savvy customers will likely contact support to troubleshoot initial connectivity issues which can quickly be resolved by peers in the support community. These questions and answers form a crowdsourced knowledge base that will allow customers to help themselves without any intervention from your team. Furthermore, these questions will feature in external search results, driving more traffic to your site. Sales The primary purpose of your community may have initially been to help support your customers, but it quickly becomes a valuable resource to help drive sales. Your support community will be a relaxed place where customers talk to each other honestly and openly. They will be less inhibited than they would if they were talking to your sales agents. Customers might be discussing a need for more functionality that you have in another product or service. Your sales team can move these conversations from the community to your CRM to curate new sales leads. 72% of customers will tell 6 people or more if they have a satisfying experience. - Esteban Kolsky Customers that have had positive interactions with their peers and members of your support team will become advocates for your brand. They will help sell your product over social media and among their friend circles. Given than 90% of customers are influenced by a positive review when buying a product*, having brand advocates is critical to your growth. Marketing There are several costly routes to learning about your customers and their wants and needs. You can conduct external surveys, or pay for research groups to look at your products and offer feedback. 56% of customers don't mind sharing their personal information in exchange for better service.** The most effective method is to look at your community. Your customers will be posting their thoughts daily. They'll tell you exactly how they use your products, offering you valuable insight into the problems they are solving with your product. This information should be used as the basis of new marketing campaigns. Project Development Your support community is a direct line to your customers. You no longer need to use external tools and services to determine which features you should add next. You'll be told directly! 55% of customers are willing to spend more money with a company that guarantees them a satisfying experience.** You'll find that some feature requests bubble up regularly. These are the ones you will want to move to your product roadmap. Invision Community allows you to segment your community into private areas for beta testing. Your developers can interact with this group to work directly with your customers to shape new functionality. Harnessing analytical data will inform development decisions. Invision Community can track keywords in user-generated content. If you have released a new feature, you can track how often it is mentioned in conversations to monitor its uptake. 52% of customers believe that companies need to take action on their feedback.* Setting up your Invision Community Now we've looked at the compelling reasons you should create a support community around your products, let's take a look at how to set up your Invision Community. Support Desk Invision Community has a fully-featured built in support desk functionality. Commerce has all the features you need, including multiple support desk categories, reply by email, pre-written reply templates and private notes. However, if you already use another support desk such as Zendesk then our API tools mean that Invision Community can integrate with your existing support flow seamlessly. Keyword Tracking Invision Community allows you to track how often specific words or phrases. This is useful to monitor which of your products are trending or monitoring uptake on new features. To set this up, visit the Statistics section of the Admin CP. Question and Answers To formalize a support or ideation area within your support community, Invision Community offers a Question and Answer forum type. Question and Answer forum types allow your members to post questions and enable other members to upvote the questions and replies. Your support team can also flag specific responses as the "best answer" which turns historical questions into a crowdsourced knowledge base. Showcasing Great Content Invision Community has several tools to highlight great customer-created content. You can pin topics, and feature specific replies within those topics. You can also convert posts into new articles within a formal knowledge base or blog to further help your customers find the right answers to their questions. Extensibility Invision Community has OAuth and a REST API out of the box. This means it's trivial to extend Invision Community to work within your existing flows. Integrate Invision Community to your SalesForce CRM and Zendesk support systems seamlessly. Create a federated search to integrate your external knowledge base with client-generated knowledge. The options are limitless, and we can take care of any custom integrations for you. If you have any questions, please let me know below, or contact us to see how we can help you harness the power of community for your business. * https://www.customerthermometer.com/customer-service/customer-service-and-satisfaction-statistics-for-2019/ ** https://www.qminder.com/customer-service-statistics/

    Version 4.4.4


    This script will check if you are ready to use IPS Community Suite 4.x Please note that if you are on IPS Hosting you do not need to worry about this, it will be taken care of for you! Simply upload the script either to the directory where your current IP.Board 3.x. installation is (if you want to test if you're ready to upgrade) or anywhere else on your server (if you want to test if you can perform a fresh install) and run it in your web browser. The script will check your PHP and MySQL versions against what is required and what we recommend. It's important to note that the recommendations are just recommendations for optimum performance for IPS 4. If you're still running IP.Board 3.x then we recommend that you stay on the PHP and MySQL versions you have currently.

    After converting our community from SMF to IPB, we were having an issue with users being logged out on the home page. We worked with our host and IPB to fix that--but the fix wound up making the chatbox not work. The developer visited our site and pointed out the issue, which enabled us to know what was going on and get things actually fixed. I'm very grateful for the support, and especially for a FREE chatbox.

    Overall, the app is great! It does what it says on the tin, is easy to install and has some great features, like posting photos inside the chat and being easy to read and use on mobile devices. One suggestion: I'd love to see a setting for guests to chat, even if it's just with a temporary username like "Guest". In an ideal world, they could enter a name that would just be text rather than a link to a profile, as members are. This is one feature my users are really missing on this app versus our old Shoutbox. Again, this would be a toggleable setting, because I know not all communities want a guest-friendly chat. But overall, I really appreciate the app; it's definitely one of the most useful add-ons to my site.

    The only thing this needs is a box on the side that shows who's in the chat! We've got complaints about IP.Chat being better because it had the list of people in the chat room. Unfortunately IP.Chat is no longer a thing. So for now this works great! If it had that feature, it would be 5 stars all day!!
