    Raffles System

    So winners will NOT be picked in a locked raffle, only asking to confirm, yes? Yes, I know the permission matrix for MEMBER GROUPS So your suggestion to my question is: -> create a giveaway, with no (0) allowed membergroups raffle must be open, not expired, not completed Every single member, I wish to join a giveaway, should be added manually to this giveaway (I will do this) winners are picked, as they were entered manually and it doesn't matter that they don't belong to an allowed membergroup If possible, that would be fine for me 🙂 ok Yes, I can't confirm either, if I newly add the terms and save. I just did it again and they saved successfully (for now, as always, but only for now). I'll recheck later and tomorrow, as this really happened multiple times, that the terms & conditions vanish. Title and description don't vanish. Maybe this is due to a translation error? or an editor error, that they get overwritten somehow when reconfiguring the categories? I will keep an eye on this now and inform you, if I have any clues what could cause this issue. 🙂 Thanks.

    Raffles System

    Questions If I "lock" a raffle or a giveaway, can I still add members, and will the winners of the raffle/giveaway be drawn at the expiry date and notified? -> Reason: I want to have raffles/giveaways "on invitation only". As there is no option for this, maybe "locking the raffle" will work and I can add members manually Suggestions Please add a function to "ban a member from" (A) a specified raffle and (B) all raffles -> Reason: My members have to fulfil additional requirements, not listed in your limitations filter. If they lie and still receive a ticket, then I want to ban them from either "this raffle" or "all raffles" Additional filters: # limit by followers count (following members) # limit by the new bulk email opt-in filter (which has officially been implemented to the IPS core since IPS 4.3.4) # has added a post to a specified forum? # has been awarded with an iAward (or an iAward in a special iAward category) # has received reactions in a specified timeframe (f.e. has gained 25 positive reactions in a week) <- this would have a massive user engagement impact. Make the "show filter" option for the participations requirements a setting per raffle/per giveaway (NOT a global setting) -> Reason: Sometimes, it makes sense to show such a filter, but in many times it just makes no sense Template elements order changes in raffle/giveaway detail view: Currently, first the header is displayed (cover image, title), then the filter segment, then the description, then participants, then the prizes. I think this is not ideal, as the most important information are THE PRIZES (which are down at the bottom of the page! but should be displayed on top!) I'd suggest to change the template to 1# header 2# prizes & random participants 3# filter 4# description Insert an option to NOT show the "giveaway" or "raffle" badge on index -> Reason: I don't have (paid) raffles to offer, only free giveaways. As everything is free, the badge has no need to show. It even disturbs the look of the cover image. There should be an option to remove the badge completely. Bugs In the category configuration, if I select the types that can be created (free giveaways and/or paid raffles), it always shows both fields for terms and conditions -> It should only display the field for the allowed types, not the field for a disallowed type In the category configuration, the fields "terms & conditions" are not saved -> Don't know when and why it happens, but if I enter raffle category terms & conditions and save them, after a few days, they disappeared. I tested this several times in my installation.
  3. There is an option in the member groups setting for this (to exclude member groups from being displayed), on the first tab in each member group.

    override bulk email opt out

    To pool the ideas & results so far: we request an option, to sendout emails to ALL members (ALL minus any banned accounts) for use in critical situations. this event should be logged. and a warning given before being processed.
  5. Sorry, I don't want to destroy your request, but I really don't think a "create issue" button should be placed there. So please don't beat me for my refutation 😂 ^^ This is only the issue information pane, and a "create new" button shouldn't be placed inside there, as it isn't related to the shown issue at all... I had the same problem, that new issues can only be created via the "project view" which is very unhandy (and I reported this 1 year ago as a suggestion on fosters.tech) What I finally did as a self-help solution was, I added a custom "text & php widget" above the "all issues overview / filter tabs page", and I inserted the button code to display it on the top there. This might also be a good solution for you 🙂
  6. A Zapier integration bridge sounds exciting. Maybe open a new topic for the Zapier integration? What are the IPS ECAs (events / conditions / actions), that are supported by the bridge? Are conditions implemented at all ("premium filter" availability)? The pricing model only states "starting at 20$/month" (and that's it for single users, but are there any hidden costs on top of that?) Any known limitations?

    override bulk email opt out

    I totally accept the argument, that members, that don't wish to receive emails, are honoured, and they shouldn't receive "regular transactional" or "advertisement emails". Even the argument, that it helps not being moved onto spamlists/black lists aso, counts But actually there is a requirement for being able to address ALL members via bulk email in special situations: If you change your terms & conditions and this will require attention of ALL members as there might be changes to their # withdrawal accounts (affecting former credits that are already earned) # activity/inactivity status (what happens if they don't use their accounts anymore) # new community owners (announcing a community transfer and hence new contractors) If the community was compromised # send important security advices # legally inform your members, which might be required by law aso

    Members Shop ( Support Topic )

    As a general suggestion for the reactions points: I recently saw an input mask in another app, that allows reactions per forum, as well as for the receiver as for the giver. I think this is a very smart idea, because each forum has another significance for the community. The main benefits of this are: have different points (positive/neutral/negative) according to the value of each section (you can exclude off topic areas for example, or you can assign different points levels for areas of more or less value) while awarding reactions receivers with points, also award reaction givers. this leads to a complete engagement spiral. members (receivers) are being enticed to create high quality contents, other members (givers) are being enticed to make use of their available reactions (which will again entice more receivers aso) if we could add both reactions points types per forums for each reaction, this would allow us a lot better control about how much points are awarded/deducted, and this leads the community members to prioritize areas for their posts creations, which are most wanted by the community
  9. Reactions for issue/item starter posts aren't displayed on mobile view... And I get embed errors with embedding linked contents into the editor (f.e. if I want to cross reference another project manager issue) Template core/front/embed/embedHeader is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme And please check the feature to show an extra badge if you have the time, whom issues/items are assigned to already on the preview/overview pages. It would make working on the project a lot easier. So on the overview pages, currently it shows BUG OPEN New feature request Should look like this -> BUG OPEN FOSTERS New feature request ^^ additional information, to whom the issue is assigned to Please consider this feature. Thanks.
  10. Another important question is: Why are only member groups promotions supported in the membership subscriptions module, that promote members to a primary member group? I'm using a complex group structure of primary and secondary groups and I really require to offer subscriptions, that promote members to secondary member groups only! My members require to purchase multiple subscriptions at once, and this is only possible with "secondary group promotion subscriptions"!

    Bookmarks - Support Topic

    When will the upgrade with the announced new templates or settings take place? Just asking, as I will be interested again as soon as there is a compact, minimalistic display of bookmarks. My communities opinion was, that bookmarks only make sense, if they can find each specific bookmark easily and fast again. With more than f.e. 200 bookmarks and a totally overloaded template, no member ever found his favourite bookmarks again. And my members also like to create complete "bookmark lists" in different "bookmark categories" for other members. Sort of their personal best-of-advices-selections. That's the reason, why categories should have individual descriptions shown on the member profiles, and bookmarks should have an extra field for an individual, personal bookmark note, to enhance the bookmark with personal words... I suggest, just the BOOKMARK CATEGORY NAME and additionally 2-3 lines text description should be shown for the categories headlines (as a settings option). And for the bookmarks, just show the original title of f.e. the topic. And have a second text line for editable personal notes, that can identify the tangible content, if the member wishes to add such a note. (as a setting option) What I'd love to see is something like this: Thanks.

    Birthday Greeter Support

    The time buffer is set to 3 hours. Today a member received 3 personal messages (PM) via the birthday greeter (the member is in 2 allowed member groups) Maybe the task is processed once an hour?

    Birthday Greeter Support

    Today I discovered, that if a member is in 2 allowed member groups, he received the birthday greeter PM twice (the second PM 1 hour later), but should only receive once. There is something wrong. Probably if mixing allowed and denied member groups, they receive none, but have to go on testing this.

    Extended widget areas

    I made this, thanks for the explanation. But regarding this problem: -> How can I insert these widget container grids on different IP.apps pages like on the forums index page, downloads index page aso? Can I also edit the mentioned templates via the ACP somehow or do I have to edit the apps templates via FTP then? And most important, should I edit the forum.index template or better stay away from this idea?

    Extended widget areas

    Great it works for everyone, except for me 😂 Because I don't know where to input this code... If I want to enhance the look of apps like IP.downloads or iAwards or..., so how and where do I insert the code to show a 3 columns row below the regular bottom widget container? Or is this just code, that I could put into IP.pages?
