    Maxxius reacted to Matt in Why aren't posts numbered within a thread?   
    It's just meaningless clutter.

    The question comes up now and again, but it really doesn't get a lot of traction from fellow Invision Community owners. You can share the post permalink via the three dot menu, or by the post time link.

    We're keen to keep visual noise to a minimum and let the post content be the focus.

    Thanks for the feedback - it's definitely early stages. We'll be looking to improve performance as time goes on, as well as add functionality. There's only one codebase for both iOS/Android, but that is indeed (currently) separate from the main product. It's very much 'work in progress' right now 🙂

    What will happen with 4.4 which allows Facebook logins?

    It needs to be improved, one giant thing being is the overall speed of the app. It takes awhile before it opens up. Much faster to open chrome and enter the url. 🙂
    I'm positive guys at IPS will figure this out eventually. Tapatalk app has a decent speed so why not IPS app too? 🙂

    I appreciate all your suggestions, but I've gone for https://moviebuffs.org as the .org extension, after some research, I found was the first TLD and .com followed thereafter.  As the .org name was available I plumbed for that.  All the other domain names extensions are new and not so popular currently.  So, the new address is now https://moviebuffs.org making it more universal and easily found - at least in the search engines 🙂
    Many thanks again for all your suggestions, it just shows what a great community this is with immensely helpful members.

    Do you have anything thoughts on the concerns several of us have raised? 
    Fracturing sites that contain content not "IPB" based Adding custom features and skins that sites have (but the app cant) Additional costs to maintain a custom app (versus responsive web skin) Decreased Monetization (especially advanced schemes like header bidding) SEO when web traffic drops due to app usage versus web

    What would you suggest is better than .co.uk? I am always open to suggestions if it will help things along and make my site/s better and easier for people to find and use. I'm unsure about the relevance of many of these new TLD's and how they play out. I'd prefer .com anytime, but it's not always readily available and some are just parked for sale at ridiculous prices.
    I'm forever tinkering with the look and feel, trying to make it easier for people to use. I've outlined some suggestions for the application being used to the developer for the next iteration, whether these are possible, feasible or even desirable is something for the developer to decide.
    BTW I'm waiting to see if your plugins will be updated soon so I can put them to beneficial use 🙂
    With thanks

    Ahhh. Looks like I will make that 4.5 upgrade sooner than later then lol.
    I am super interested in having my own app. I know this would probably open a can of worms for IPS, but I think IPS offering a white label version for clients would be a serious game changer. 
    I'd love to offer an app version to my paid subscribers. IDK what this looks like, but I imagine it could be done... just how? I'm unsure. The thought of it though gets me super fired up!!

    Push notifications are a humungous deal. Also, I think many people tend to overlook the psychology of what an app can provide for your business. To the consumer, they see you have an app and it's extremely impressive. There's a mobile version of FB, but everyone uses the app. They both can technically do the same, but one simply functions much better.
    I would love to see the IPS team begin shifting conversations towards how this app will become the next evolution of IPS. It is (imo) how forums should function in the future. 
    I know there's an entire can of worms associated to shifting away from the web version to an app, and what this means for developers / the community etc. I'm less interested in the "how" and more of the "why." 🙏 🙂

    Maxxius reacted to Interferon in Discord is killing our forum   
    @Jimi Wikman That's what I am saying. The way Facebook merges instant messages / private messages is ideal. You can quickly write one line to someone, or pop it open in the full editor to write a more detailed message.
    I agree, I don't really see a way for group chat to mix with the forum, but 1-on-1 chat / PMs could be done nicely.

    I just disabled our Discord server and some people were very angry with me. This is proof it was a bad idea to ever start it. They will steal your community and give you nothing. DO NOT hand your hard-earned community over to any third-party Silicon Valley assholes like Discord or Reddit.

    Here is my new IPB site converted over from MyBB!  It is pretty much default theme with color enhancements.  I really don't want to get to crazy with plugins and apps that I have nightmares every time a new upgrade comes along so I try to stay close to default as possible!  This year is our 10th anniversary and we are coming up on 8000 members...not too bad for a niche Mustang model that was only made for 3 years!  Let me know what you think!

    I couldn't have put it better myself. Interest was the prime selling point many years ago, but not anymore. It's very hard to generate something new, interesting and worthwhile for people as there is a plethora of places they can go for information. With social media they have a ready-made gathering of people they can share their time with - for whatever. This is why it's difficult for plain ordinary interest sites to gain traction - no one likes to be first and no one likes to be the only one around.
    My own sites are just a hobby for me - I have no interest or desire to monetise or have masses of adverts cluttering the place up. I have a tendency to play the field with topics that interest me and may jump from one to another after a while; I generally keep a site alive for 12 months or so and if my own interest wains then I move on. I get a lot of pleasure from the development side and that's what keeps my interest level up.  If, by some chance, I create something that people would like to join in and contribute to, that's a bonus for me.  Other than that, I just keep moving on - as a friend who lives in the same complex as myself, is 80+ years of age and has a multitude of health issues, would say "never give in" 🙂
    As always, I appreciate your time in commenting and I do my best to listen and take in what is being said, but the landscape is a lot different today from when I first started dabbling with forums some 20 years ago - a sign of the times.

    That is what I was doing - whenever I posted to Twitter I'd get an influx of visitors but no joiners; well, there was one who joined to complain that an image I posted of Connor Trinneer was not him (it really was lol) but then never returned.  I posted in excess of 1,000 tweets and other than the one I just stated, not one joined.
    I have no idea if my new venture will be any different but I will try 🙂
    Thanks for taking the time to post @Dean

    Yeah, it's a shame, but if no one is using it I may as well make better use of Invision - XF is just too tedious to use and I've let my license lapse on it and concentrating on Invision and may add the gallery app with the money I've saved on XF 🙂
    Hopefully this new site will generate a bit more interest, but I can be both an eternal optimist and eternal sceptic when dealing with people - especially in this day of heavy mobile use and social media.  There's just no way I could use the Internet on a mobile - much prefer my desktop. 
    Thanks for mentioning and noticing @Maxxius

    Yeah I wanted IPS for the new site and downgraded the STG site to Xenforo - however, it's as dead as a dead duck so the domain name runs out in August and it will just vaporise at that time.  It's a shame that it wasn't used more, but hey ho that's way things go and you just have to move on.
    The new site is a little broader in scope as it allows people to choose what to talk about.  Every movie that is added, a new topic is created where people can go talk about it.  The General Discussions is there to talk about whatever in regards to movies or TV Shows. The system being used is fresh so there are some styling issues that need tidying up, plus it's all running on 4.5 and so far so good, just a couple of little niggles here and there.
    What I find attractive is how easy it is to add a movie or TV Show - a very short four step process - and all you need is the title of the movie or TV Show.  I can see the site growing over time, at least that is the aspiration, and improving.  All it needs is for people to take it and use it to its full potential.
    It's a shame about the STG site as a lot of work and research went into it, but if no one is using it and no one is visiting I'm not going to lay out money to keep it there. Thanks for asking, it is appreciated.  Time to move forward - onward and upward 🙂

    Maxxius reacted to Morrigan in When installing mobile app it should AUTO ADD your community   
    This is just a UX thing. If you're prompted to or you install the app it should automatically add the community that you're adding it from. This could be just because I've installed it from the ACP but that shouldn't change the design here. Having to search for the community after the fact is just a step people won't enjoy taking.

    Hey! So this question was asked only once before, many many many moons ago that I saw, but appeared to have gotten lost in the shuffle and not answered.
    I currently have to go into my admin panel and look at who was awarded a medal to read the medal note. Is there any way to display the medal note on the profile display tab for Trophies and Medals? I feel like this has to be an option somewhere, but I'm just not finding it.
    Thank you so much for the app, by the way, I really do love it!
