  1. I legit had a freak out when no one could post in any forum (including me) and I was unable to change permissions despite BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR. Come to find out, when I moved forums from the one single category I had previously made to now be category-less, it converted them all to categories. Of course NOTHING communicated this. All I saw was forums that, regardless of being a child of what I explicitly made a category or not, could no longer have any permissions changed aside from "See Forum" (which calling this a forum adds to the confusion). There's no reason to force categories
  2. Funny how the start of this thread was "This is an overreaction" and "The flu kills more people but isn't buzzy enough" The season flu has a mortality rate of 0.1% annually. The coronavirus was projected to be at 3%-4% but as of today, it's global mortality rate is currently 5.9% (US is at 3.4%). If there was no shelter-in-place orders and people just entirely ignored this, the rate would be at least doubled. The people that still stubbornly ignore the call to stay home as much as possible are only making it worse, both in how deadly it is and how long this shut down must last. Like, i
  3. As the title suggests, I'd like to see GET /core/me (and /core/member/{id} ? ) object extended with unread counters for notifications and messages GET method for notifications - retrieve the last notifications for authenticated user POST method for notifications - ability to mark notification(s) as read Hopefully for 4.4? ?
  4. Checking out the latest developments from IP!

  5. Just considering what to use IPB 3.2 for... Hmmmm...

  6. Whoo! 3.2 is released! *is late on this news*

  7. Can't wait for 3.2 to be available!

    1. Shadow82x


      There's a beta out now for testing. :)

  8. Wow, awesome stuff! Seriously, this really helps. I mean, as you said the Admin CP's editor is quite advanced, but sometimes having your own code editor helps more (especially when it comes to saving position, syntax coloring, etc). Definitely looking forward to 3.2, you guys have done a lot of hard work!
  9. Looking forward to 3.2~!

  10. looks like vBulletin just got swept over, again ;) Great job IP team! Glad there's a software maker out there with class :D
  11. Seeing the latest blog post (and other posts of course) I must say, you're going in the right direction IPB! Great to see software makers innovate their product more and put user experience on top. While functionality and specs are important, as Apple has shown, user experience is what makes or breaks it in the long run. For forum software, the best thing is to keep focus on conversations, while the extra features are exactly that, "extra". To enhance the experience if the user chooses to, but not hinder normal use. Keep it up :)
  12. only thing I'd suggest is the menu colors. Please no purple, use green instead. Purple is a mix of blue and red, which is obvious, but basically means the emotional quality refers to very intense but slightly watered down. Green would give the impression of the yellow and blue emotional factors, that being calm yet 'warning'. Rather, a less intense/pressing urgency and more of a highlight. The purple just is too intense for what it is. If the purple was used for a important or warning notice need, then that would make sense.
  13. Now you're killing me with anticipation! Heh Looking forward to it Charles :)
  14. Really, I do! I mean, I come back after some time and am welcomed with preview posts (in the blog) and wow... Lots of awesome improvements! I nearly felt the need to cry in joy, as a UI developer part of me has seen the usability (semi-minor) faults of the current IPB but am now being fixed with 3.2. And I mean, the live topic feature? Wow, didn't even think of that ever happening. It's basically showing even more devotion to the user experience, and I love it! "We're also taking full advantage of modern techniques to ensure that IP.Board has more of an application feel by eliminating page r
  15. It's a legal thing, aside from a "beware" thing. If the user gives false information, that's not a problem with the staff of the site unless they know of the user's real age and do nothing to abid to their rules and laws.
