  1. The greed is absolutely palpable.

    A. Poor form to try to publicly shame, and bad choice of move, as B. what you call palpable greed is in actuality offering his time for peanuts, that functionality would run double that in minimum estimate, much less actual cost of the time spent doing it, any pitfalls or IPS bugs hit, or anything else that can and does happen in development of a new mod.
  2. QOTW: Let's talk about music

    Currently literally stuck on Electro Swing, Swingrowers in particular. Nary a clue why this particular genre helps so much in thought processes while working, but it does loads for me.
  3. QOTW: What was your first computing memory?

    Writing BASIC, and as a result telling myself to never be a programmer. Thank goodness the languages got a lot saner to work with over time.
  4. QOTW: Name the one thing you cannot live without

    Not everyone falls into that pit. A phone is literally a phone to me, even a smartphone sees no apps installed, is small, and is not allowed to notify me of anything short of an actual call(which are not common, I'm not free with my number). When I leave the house, I unplug, I don't need the annoyance of it all, I can get it at home quite enough. I didn't even have anything but a landline until 6 months ago. Just pointing out many can indeed live without it and refuse to be attached to it. (To answer the question, clearly I'd be quite screwed without internet at home. )
  5. Storm: Dev Tools

    Extremely useful for various development tasks. Thanks for this - not that we can't or haven't written similar tools, but having them existent and readily available like this versus buried in a repository saves loads of time.
  6. Should there be some rules for renewal pricing?

    @jair101, please stop being deceptive. No app or plugin to date has done this due to 4.2. Themes have. The large template differences may warrant it, but don't lump app and plugin authors in with themers. Our woes are not equivalent to theirs, and often we can ignore template updates where themers can not. Your wording was designed to lead this topic towards the thought of apps, when in fact this is about themes. Taken in the context of themes, a complex theme may be justified in re-release, there were indeed a LOT of template changes.
  7. New IPS community URL

    .... um.... it's a brand new domain, so of course it wouldn't be in a security database. It will keep doing that until the domain is 'classified' as per the bottom set of instructions. Thanks for the screenshot, that makes more sense.
  8. New IPS community URL

    Maybe for the same reason I did a whois on the domain before trusting it? I actually was convinced i had somehow been directed to a phishing site upon waking.
  9. Filters for forum indexes

    Please add a 'list' view to streams then? I find the fluid(or even topic listings in a forum) view much easier on the eyes than the 'stream' format in whole. I have primarily avoided AS because the format is not very useful in providing information at a glance. I find the expanded view jumbled and confusing, and the condensed view gives far too little information. Not saying it actually is these things for all users, just that it would really help in AS usage for many, while identifying a potential reason people are asking for this feature in fluid view to begin with.
  10. Reply to "Are forums dying a slow death? "

    Over the years working on successful forums, I've found one thing to be an utter constant. Forums that focus on what forums were primarily designed for, the dissemination and discussion of complex concepts, fare extremely well. Rather agreeing with the above posts, I just find it amusing that no matter how many times I see a topic like the one referenced, that constant has held true. If one wants to learn something(I mean actually learn, acquiring knowledge of how to do something, not meaningless factoids that one can't actually do anything with), a forum is the best bet, and no social network can compare. As long as such holds true, forums as a whole aren't going to die.
  11. Printing (articles, blog posts etc)

    That is only meant to address the formatting when using the browser print button.
  12. Printing (articles, blog posts etc)

    Might help.
  13. Remove SQL Toolbox and Downloading Member List

    To be clear, i'm not against an enhancement here, was just stating reality. To be of real usefulness such a constant would need to disable editing templates, sql toolbox, exporting any data such as members, templates, etc, and disallow installing applications and plugins. Disable, as in, fully error out, restrictions becoming irrelevant, nobody can use these features. I am aware of a constant for the latter two items.
  14. Remove SQL Toolbox and Downloading Member List

    ^ This. All they need is theme access. Template logic, by design, allows arbitrary PHP code execution. From there, anything is possible. Game over.
  15. Remove SQL Toolbox and Downloading Member List

    At which point Randy is correct. if they have compromised an admin account with access to manage admin restrictions, they are far enough in to do much anything they want, even if by resorting to editing theme templates if the options mentioned have been removed and \IPS\NO_WRITES is enabled.
