  1. Could you please give an example of the error itself? Personally, I feel the error is more important than the person causing it.
  2. Naturally, we try to consider anything that gains traction, however, this goes against the grain of every aspect of life. No where else that I'm aware of, other than "old school" forums, are those that have been subjected to disciplined paraded in front of the public with a naughty tag. I'm not aware of any social media platform that indicates a user has been banned or disciplined. Imagine getting a sticker placed on your car after getting a speeding ticket to let the world know you had your hand slapped. We are not likely to incorporate any feature that promotes public humiliation of members.
  3. Awesome! Thanks for the positive feedback - that's exactly what we wanted to hear! I'd love to take credit, but it's definitely not me - it's really a cumulation of an amazing development team, new processes and the addition of @Olivia Clarkto the team last year. I'm extremely proud of everyone at IPS; we're very fortunate! Thanks again. 4.5 is the best yet. 🙂
  4. Oh my goodness, Woods - this kind of demonstrates the need for kindness now more than ever, doesn't it? We don't know what others are enduring. I'm glad your wife's surgery was successful and I hope the surgeons got it all, giving her a clean bill of health (someone has to babysit you after all.) As for you... you take care of yourself and stay away from those dang kids not taking this seriously, out there partying and ... licking stuff. 😑 Seriously - take care and be safe. I'll be keeping you and the missus in my thoughts.
  5. 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 c
  6. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, confusion and poor handling of this issue. Although this functionality has existed for quite some time, this was not identified as a widespread / abused issue until recently. When the growing concern was brought to management attention, we acted as quickly as possible. A red warning banner should display for anyone impacted; I apologize if it didn't for some of you initially. We have corrected the issue - pushing remote notifications to AdminCPs is not a system we use very often, so there was a kink. Once again, my sincerest apologies for the b
  7. Please remember that we do not permit political discussion here. We realize this topic has walked a fine line, but we are trying to leave it open, so stick to the virus and the impact on your lives and hold the inflammatory/political commentary. There are plenty of outlets for that and if we continue to get complaints/reports, we will have to shut this down. Thank you. 🙂
  8. I don't have all the answers and I try not to pretend that I do. The cancellations are basically forced social distancing because, as mentioned before, some people just don't take it seriously enough. Whether that's warranted or not, we may never know. I too wish it wasn't necessary. As for what's different between this and past viruses - those risk factors mentioned earlier. The ease of transmission alone is especially incredible. Further, 43% of confirmed cases in my state have resulted in hospitalization. With that said, testing is very poor in the US and there isn't enough data to conclusi
  9. There's no shortage of division on either "side "in general. Your post below regarding stimulus packages is a great example. You can be on either side of that, no problem. When you begin disagreeing with a consensus in science, well... you can say the sky is purple, but it doesn't make it so. I'm not aware of a credible infectious disease doctor or epidemiologist alive that thinks you should just go about your business, wash your hands and call it a day. No, there are absolutely not "tons of experts on the other side with opposite views." The very overwhelming consensus amongst virtually every
  10. Some baffling responses here. 🙂 I think some of the responses here simply derive from a concerning pattern in society: shortsightedness. We have a nasty habit of focusing on the NOW without regard for the later. You have some that cite the very success of containment and "flattening the curve" as purported proof that there was nothing to worry about to begin with. Not "awesome, it's working!" It's "this is ridiculous, hardly anything is happening." Truly, truly bizarre. "Influenza kills more people!" There are a couple of things to note about this often misused comparison: 1.
  11. We will be releasing a patch or update soon that disables the email feature altogether. In 4.5, the email share function utilizes the sender's own mail client (mailto - for you nerdy types) and does not pass through the software.
  12. Generally, if you contact us and let us know the circumstances, we will change the URL for you if there's nothing funky going on and it's not an every day thing. We had to begin imposing a fee for a few reasons. Firstly, to reduce "license hopping" (multiple licenses and swapping URLs back and forth to obtain updates/support.) Secondly, it cuts down on those trying to actually have multiple installations (I won't get into the specifics for obvious reasons) on one license. Lastly, but perhaps most important, the most common scenario are "tinkerers" who install, tinker, remove, re-install on a n
  13. This is a little tricky. It's pretty unusual to have that many error banners and not be able to correct them. These types of things used to be dismissible, but ... people dismissed them. We are all guilty of "I'll do that later" and while I understand you have a test site, in most circumstances, the ramifications of ignoring those gateway errors can be significant (no payments.) We have to find that balance between nannying and protecting our customers. We use that particular error style sparingly (I know it may not seem so based on your screenshot!) but when we do, they should be taken
