    Connor T got a reaction from AndyF in Help me understand this licence renewal stuff   
    I don't know what everyone is getting up in arms about.

    I had IP.Downloads expire 5 days ago. IP. Board expired today, and IP. Content had been expired for a few months. I paid $50 and all of sudden all my products are on the same billing cycle. Now I just have to worry about 1 date every 6 months. This isn't complicated. Read the information you are given and stop making assumptions.

    IPS isn't cheating anyone nor doing any black magic. Their system makes sense. Read the website. Read the client area. It all makes sense if you just read it.

    Connor T got a reaction from Rick L in IPB Cancelling Perpetual Licenses - Confirmed!   
    Obviously IPS can't make money on Perpetual and whatever the other unlimited license was. They made them to make a bunch of money 8 years ago, probably when the company was still forming and needed a large sum of money. Now steady clients with steady payments = good. One time payments = bad.

    Just buy a real license. Holding something valid for this long is just mean to them. Why do you think they keep coming out with "active" license only software? Spam Service? Skin Designer? CDN? Its because those require month to month paying and using the business model of 1 time pay just won't work.

    Probably better stated that you've 'outgrown' IPS hosting.

    Would be the same case as if you were on a shared host. 'unlimited' really isn't 'unlimited'. Think about that for a bit..

    Connor T reacted to Tom Christian in Notify admins if skin update is available   
    I know this is available to mod authors so that administrators can be informed if an update is available. Why not skinners?

    I regularly have people e-mail me and tell me my products are 'bugged' or 'flawed' yet in reality, it's because they've upgraded from 3.2 -> 3.3 without downloading the latest version of the skin.

    This would be an extremely useful addition in my opinion.

    Thanks.

    Connor T reacted to Cyrem in Timeline also in IPB?   
    I think the idea of the 'timeline system' is actually good. I understand most people wish to burry the past because they maybe ashamed of their postings, but for website centered on content only and not so much chatter, I don't see how a timeline of postings is bad and maybe help get content noticed.

    Unless you have something to hide, I haven't seen any other reasons why timelines are bad. So care to share why timelines are bad aside from the previous point? I would like to know as I do not know much about FB's implementation of it other than people complaining about it bringing up their past. Regarding that, if you are ashamed of something you have written, why write it in the first place....

    Clients can talk about whatever they want. I get pissed off that people make 10000 SEO topics, but it doesn't detract from anything or make me think less of IPS in any way.

    Its just a discussion, I see nothing in this topic that is "troll like".

    If the image cannot be found in the skin folder, check master for it. Then try and load it. Otherwise 404 the image.

    Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder from the zip file you get when you download this app to your site, visit the Manage Applications & Modules page in your Admin CP, click the button that says 'upgrade' beside the entry for this app, follow the steps in the upgrader.

    Connor T reacted to Ryan H. in Admin CP: Log Everything.   
    One frustration I've occasionally had with IP.Board is how many administrative actions are not logged. I think the logs should cover every action as much as possible--we should never be left saying, 'Well, the logs don't show anything... was something changed?'

    Someone saves a settings group? Log it.
    Rebuilds some stats? Log it.
    Modifies a template bit? Log it.
    Runs an SQL query? Log it [the query itself!].
    Changes ACP Permissions? Log it.
    Installs or disables an application/hook, or runs an upgrade? Log it.
    Imports/exports a skin or language pack? Log it.
    Removes logs? Log it!

    Yeah?

    IPB has Sphinx, they don't charge.

    Xenforo has nothing, they add ElasticSearch and they charge.

    I don't see why IPS needs ElasticSearch.

    Its purpose is to deceive new visitors to your site and make them think the site is more popular than it actually is. It's a pretty underhanded trick to pull on your visitors.

    Wow, that was really annoying of you. I set up a bug tracker dedicated to this project I took over for the good of the community and you won't take the 2 minutes to register there so I can track this. I'm really getting tired of people like you, it's a good thing there are so many other appreciative people out there to balance folks like you out.

    I'll file the bug report on this and investigate it. Thanks ever so much for letting me know about it.
