  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Printing (articles, blog posts etc)

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

    Might help.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Remove SQL Toolbox and Downloading Member List

    Why would you allow a restricted admin account access to manage admin restrictions? :|
  13. Leaderboard oddity

    Per picture, the 'x and y others liked this' appears to be often incorrect: https://invisionpower.com/leaderboard/
  14. New Security Questions Client Area

    Perhaps my logic is flawed. I do use a password manager. From my perspective and understanding of the relevant technology, if an attacker was to gain access to this account, they will have to have gained access to my password manager, as brute forcing such a large and complex password would take decades, even if for some reason the database was compromised. Security questions such as these would be a last barrier to entry on this specific account, and as a result I wouldn't think it wise to store the answers to such questions anywhere, much less in the same password manager that would very likely already be compromised.
  15. New Security Questions Client Area

    Shouldn't the user be able to define their own security questions? It is the only way to have them be truly secure, questions like this are quite easy to get the answers to with simple social engineering. I skipped them as well, because there is a vast amount of assumption, only one question is valid. I'd be concerned if I didn't use 30-character passwords.
