    TSP got a reaction from Salmo in [AdonisMale] Tags & Tag Administration   
    I also would like clicking on a tag to provide the option to delve more into the tags (as in: search for items that contain multiple tags defined in search)
    So let's say I click on the tag "cars". On the result page it would then present me with something like: 
    «These tags were used in combination with the tag "cars":
    Toyota (50+), BMW (21), Nissan (11), show more...»
    The content inside the parenthesis could indicate how many results it would be reduced down to (if possible) and clicking "show more" would expand the list by ajax. Clicking on "Toyota" would then return the results that contained both tags ("cars" and "Toyota" This idea is maybe what you meant with "Clicking on a tag finds variant or similar tags", but I wanted to expand on it at least. 
    As for your suggestions, @adonismale; I very much agree on being able to follow a tag and for moderators to be able to deny tags individually on content items.
    Another thing I want is for the community being able to add tags. So let's say each member could add up to X amount of tags to each individual content item, even though they didn't start it. This would also tie in with moderators being able to deny tags that were added. There would of course need to be some history on who added a tag and when.

    Just a reminder that we should review this topic in a year's time and let history judge us.

    China had a fairly low mortality rate once they got in front of it because of many reasons (welding people into their homes, removing people from homes who had a temperature, and so on) and the main one is they rapidly expanded their hospital capabilities so the 20% who need hospital support had it.

    Without those extra beds, the mortality rate would explode.

    The key thing is to slow the spread so people trickle into hospitals and do not pour in like an avalanche.
    If everyone gets the treatment they want, the mortality rate will end up around 0.19% (seasonal flu is 0.02% FTR).
    If everyone gets sick at the same time, just google "Spanish Flu 1918" to find out what will happen.

    The impact to people's mental health, and the economy is also important because there is a risk that millions will die from hunger, poverty and mental health issues. A balance is needed. But right now while this pandemic is ripping through the world and there is not a single cure or single proven medical intervention to help other than ventilate and cross your fingers the sensible thing is to slow its spread by reducing human contact.

    Once we get proven medical interventions (that don't risk heart attack) that drive down mortality rates we can start to lift restrictions because hospitals can cope with more.

    Finally, "mild" cases are common - about 80%. A friend currently has a "mild" case which won't require hospitalisation, and here's a rough description from them:

    8 days in bed, too weak to lift my head. Coughing up so much my back is in constant pain. There are times I feel like I'm choking and can't breathe. I can't talk for more than a few minutes and I feel like I'm burning up from the inside.

    That's a mild case. He'll get better. But why on earth would you gamble with this? Do you want to risk dying alone next week after days of torture? No friends of family to hold your hand as you slip away? Just a nurse waiting for you to die so they can use the ventilator for the next person laying on a corridor floor coughing and trying to breathe? Your body carried in procession with thousands of others to a hidden cremation no one will attend?

    Stay home. That's all we're being asked to do. The economy recovery will have to wait a few more weeks or months.

    As I mentioned earlier in the topic, I think it's a struggle for some to get the big picture of this. Setting aside the "death rate" for a moment - the larger concern is the capacity of the healthcare system. The only reason the death toll isn't higher is because there's thousands and thousands of people currently being saved by ventilators. If we do not continue to try and get ahead of this, we will run out of capacity. You needn't have a medical degree nor be an epidemiologist to know that if ventilators and beds are saving lives and we run out of same, we will be unable to save those that could otherwise be (and are currently being) saved. Also consider the capacity for non-covid patients. Hospitals existed for things other than intubating covid patients before this and those issues have not suddenly gone away. 
    As new information comes out (such as the potential benefits of combination drug therapy) - the long-term future is very bright, from a health perspective anyway. In the interim, we still very much need to take it seriously and follow instructions. Again, not because the virus is going to wipe out earth, but because we cannot sustain the number of new cases still on a strong upward trend. 
    I still remain baffled why there's STILL a segment of society (albeit a minority) that just can't get their heads around it. Somewhere between "retreat to my bomb shelter with 3,000 rolls of Charmin" and "pfft. media hype. I'll do what I want" would be ideal. Nonetheless, there's a growing number of people who are trying to look forward and come up with creative solutions to the economic fallout and that is encouraging. 
    As an aside, when I said leave politics out of this, I meant leave partisan politics out of it. This isn't the place to discuss politicians or their respective parties. 
    Be safe.

    This is the Norwegian translation of IPS 4, the remainder of this text will be in Norwegian.
    Dette er den norske språkpakken for Invision Power Suite 4. Oversettelsen er gjort til bokmål.
    Disse applikasjonene er oversatt:
    System / Core Forum - IP.Forums Blogger - IP.Blog Kalender - IP.Calendar Galleri - IP.Gallery Nedlastninger - IP.Downloads  
    Jeg blir veldig takknemlig for tips til små og store ting som bør endres. Språkpakken er ikke testet eller brukt i et reelt miljø og er gjort uten kontekst. Det kan derfor hende at enkelte ord eller fraser kan misforstås, være for kompliserte eller ikke passe inn i konteksten akkurat nå. 
    Det å oversette alt sammen tar svært mye tid (da mener jeg myyyyyeee tid) og er til tider svært krevende og monotont arbeid. Jeg ber dere derfor være forståelsesfulle hvis dere finner ting dere mener burde vært oversatt på en annen måte, høres helt feil ut, er ukonsekvent osv. Det kan godt være jeg er helt enig med dere, men det kan være vanskelig å vite før det blir påpekt.
    Jeg blir spesielt glad hvis du har forslag til hvordan enkelte tekster kan forenkles, det er mange ganger jeg har oversatt en frase eller ord hvor jeg har tenkt "Dette ordet eller setningen trenger vel ikke så være lang eller bestå av så mange delord?", men det finner man liksom først ut etter man har brukt det.
    Jeg planlegger å oversette andre applikasjoner etterhvert. God fornøyelse!

    TSP got a reaction from Paul E. in Moderation History should be available when topic is deleted   
    Hello, 
    When a topic is visible, there is a lot of moderator actions available: 

    When a topic has been deleted, but not yet permanently deleted, you can still visit the topic. 
    In that case, the list of available options are fewer. This is fine, but you should still be able to view the Moderation History in my opinion.

    (I was very tempted to report this as a bug, as I feel this is an oversight, but I have a feeling tier 1 would count it as feedback.)

    Theoretically, if you knew all the information that makes up the anonymous identifier code, someone could try to generate an md5-hash from this information for each member to get an exact match on the code, and thus reveal the identity. 
    Although I view it as unlikely, the unique key setting is available so you could add in a string that you choose, so it's much less likely that someone will guess all the information that the md5-code is made up of. 
    In order to remove the code from the post itself atm, you could change the language string anon_poster_hash in your default language pack. You can search for "Anonymous poster hash" within the language pack translate screen to find it. Replace it with  
    I currently don't have a way to remove this from the guest name when you don't have a user configured, but you could connect it to a user account named "Guest" or whatever you choose, and then it will use that account name. 
    I can provide a way to disable this in a later update, I thought it was possible to deselect all for the md5-setting, but that doesn't work, so I'll fix that.

    TSP reacted to bfarber in Private Threads INSTEAD of PM's   
    Slack is an entirely different type of product with an entirely different focus. Their aim is to provide a messaging solution, where group and direct messages should be instant. This is analogous to the old IP.Chat software we used to produce.
    A community package (i.e. "forums") are not the same type of thing, so comparing the two is like comparing apples to oranges.
    Our personal conversations feature can provide direct 1 to 1 (or 1 to many) private conversation functionality, and while we can and may improve it in a future release, I don't think Invision Community will ever head down the path of becoming a Slack clone.

    TSP got a reaction from sudo in Clearer difference on hidden/visible posts in hidden topic   
    In many scenarios the moderators on a community need to hide a topic (damage control) until posts in the topic has been moderated.
    After the most recent update, all posts in the topic are colored pink, because they are hidden in the sense that the topic is hidden, but the post itself may not be hidden. 
    This has led to the moderators having a more difficult time to get an overview of which posts are left to review on whether to hide or not. 
    I've told them that when the post is hidden because the topic is hidden, then it will just say "Hidden" on the post header, but when a single post is hidden, then it says "Hidden by ...". I also told them that it doesn't cause any issues if they accidentally hide a post twice. 

     
    However, this still causes confusion and making the day-to-day tasks of the moderators more difficult. 
    We would therefor suggest it goes back to how it was previously, where posts had no pink color when the post itself wasn't hidden or use a less pink color for those posts. Another idea may be something like this: 

     
    Please also see my other feedback related to hiding posts inside already hidden topics.

    When hiding a single post (from the Options menu on the post) you are taken back to the page you where on. This is good and works as expected. 
    However, when using the multi-select tool and choosing to hide from the moderator toolbox overlay, then you are taken back to the first page. You should be left on the page you were on.

    Thanks, @Matt. I just had another similar user complain about it this week actually. 
    If it would be feasible with a sort of in-between setting, then I guess one way to do it, while still maintaining a level of notification would be either: 
    Monthly or bi-weekly digest if any new devices have been discovered in the time-frame.  In-between setting that does a qualified guess based on other data. IP-address/location of previous login attempt, previous browser data and other data about previous logins, like usual time of day/login pattern. This would then be ranked either low risk or  high risk. (Possibly throw in a medium risk as well). And then you could choose what levels you'd like to receive.   
    I'm sorry. I just felt I communicated clearly in the first post what my suggestion was about. To then have a second person, in a short amount of time, misunderstand what I meant, and me feeling like people didn't read my post and believe I was new to the platform, on a bad day, was making me respond in such a manner. Apparently though, I didn't communicate clear enough and provide enough details in my post, since people made those misunderstandings. Sorry for my response.
