    liquidfractal got a reaction from JoshB84 in 4.5: Club Improvements Roundup   
    I plan to expand my use of Clubs ("Spaces" on my site) so that clients who need tuition or mentoring over a longer period can have a private space with multimedia galleries, a writing blog, and a versioned file storage space for essays etc.
    But because I also use Spaces for academic reading groups my only setback is that I really, REALLY need categories for Clubs so that I can organise things, as different classes of student use the same resources independently of each other.
    So, yes....great additions, and I'm looking forward to them.  But hey - you wanna see me reach for a cigarette after upgrading (and I don't even smoke!)?  Clubs categories!!

    (Come on...you even made me do a social media cat thing when I have Hegel to read!)

    Great ideas which do lots to underscore the value that forums can bring in the age of quick-fix social media.
    Thanks Invision! 👍

    More great additions to the suite!
    Not to make lives difficult or to sound ungrateful, but I wonder if opening from the top/going to newest comment/going to latest comments I haven't read shouldn't be a per-thread choice?  If I'm revisiting a thread I'm heavily engaged in, maybe I just want to see all the newest comments (kudos to whoever had the great idea of filtering for only unread posts!); if it's a new thread I don't know much about, maybe I want to start at the top.  Would this be possible using a quick filter button by the thread title or something?
    Anyway, just thinking out loud.  Keep 'em coming! 👍

    We could have even more privacy if we would have categories for clubs. E. g. by setting permission to category of who can view it and clubs inside the category.

    Yeah...not that I'm leaping to defend the ghetto that is social media, but that judge is completely out of it where social media is concerned.  But wouldn't it be nice if that precedent strangled social media content to the extent that people returned to independent communities which can (theoretically) offer higher quality content?

    You can even change this if you want with Kevin Carwile's Advanced path Aliasing app.  There is a free version which supports IIRC up to 50 aliases, so you could use this to easily change the main URL from "forums" to "discussions."

    My dream is that IPS grows enough that it can pay a dedicated developer team for each app. Pages, Commerce, Downloads … they all just get these “sweeps” after 1,5 years with a few improvements here and there. It clearly shows. Those app can’t keep up with standalone solutions by other providers who improve that one app all day every day.

    My culture is academic and scholarly, so I've never had a problem with the concept of "forums"...especially since the discussions we have (when you can get academics together on a website long enough 🙄) could never be seriously carried on in Facebook groups or anything of the kind.
    Likewise for teaching and tutoring academic writing, critical thinking and English - the ways in which forums allow you to excerpt ("quote") and analyse specific parts of an argument or debate win the day as far as collaboration goes.  Forums are key to creating meaningful exchanges which can be revisited and amplified by students and educators alike - especially when more recent functionality allows them to be appended to other content such as Articles.  Not one of my students or other clients has ever had a problem with "forums."

    Better than "bulletin boards" 😂
    Regardless of the name, I think discussion communities will always serve a growing importance in an increasingly digital world.  The ones who can be the best in their niche will be able to serve a digitally global audience, solopreneuers can now reach customers everywhere, and brands can scale to any size and audience group with a community.

    Not to mention the fact that CentOS 6.x reaches EOL some time next year. 🙂
    But the points made here need repeating: despite the hassle and inevitable hand-wringing involved with upgrading one's live site (compound this if you use many third-party apps and plugins, all of whom almost certainly have their own update schedules which will not coincide with yours), IMHO there is no excuse to fall behind to the point where you're still using 3.x.
    I don't always agree with the priorities re: what gets added and when, or what gets dropped from v3 to v4, but it's the world we live in.
    Oh, and...backup backup backup.
