    The Guy reacted to ahc in VIDEO/CAM/CHAT APP for IPS Community   
    I don't recommend a company currently in a lawsuit for illegally selling user's data and supporting CPC propaganda by suppressing activists against the inhumane treatment under the current Communist regime.
    That being said, Arrowchat is compatible with IPS and just had a major update to its software.

    Without boring you with too many details, the largest issue that impacts payment delays is fraud, yes it's a very big item that costs most online company many tens of thousands of dollars each year. While there are preventions companies can use to help mitigate a large portion of fraud, often times they can be set to a manual review so a payment isn't rejected without a human eye on it.  At times these items can take a little while to process.
    The best advice I can give you is to be patient, setup a card on file to auto renew, and also ensure you are not using a proxy, have proper billing addresses that match the payment info on file and with your bank.  I'm glad your payment was processed though and welcome back.  🙂

    That seems to be a style issue with the custom theme you seem to be using.
    Did you tweak default your self or did you buy a style from somewhere? Could also just be that something is wrong with your cache/cookies, try clearing those. You'd be surprised how often that fixes most issues. I would also recommend switching temporarily to another theme/style and see if the issue persists.

    The Guy reacted to Flitterkill in Adding custom fields to post Bits   
    Here's some more to give you an idea of the possibilities. A few years back on the 3x series on our gaming site all we had people do was drop in their Steam id on a custom profile field.
    Now, just displaying that is pretty whatever.
    SteamID: 1298578327347
    So, instead, made a small steam icon graphic and in the display format area we entered something like this (not exact, just winging it here)
    <a href='www.steamcommunity.com/profiles/{content}'><img src='steamgraphic.png'></a>
    So then we got a link to their profile page underneath their avatar junk and so on.
    From there, we pushed it out to popup steam card on hover, and so on... It's pretty doable if you put a bit of time into it.
    Note that drop down for the field content let's you do a ton of things. Select box with you setting up some options to choose and on and on.

    Yeah, what I posted does that exactly. Other than the user needing to input the info on their own on their profile page that's pretty much it. 


    Can do pretty much whatever with the field itself. And then once you enter the format for display in the yellow circled area in the second screenshot it will appear right where you pointed out in your image.
    The format area is also really wide open. The default text example that pre-populates the field (but isn't actually there) will kick out:
    Gamertag: Whatever it is they enter
    But you can do any css classes and ips if/then template calls or whatever you want.

    The Guy got a reaction from IPCommerceFan in A suggestion for 'Solved' or 'Best Answer'   
    I'm not sure exactly if you guys already mentioned a new plan or planned extension for the Best Answer post feature. But if I may elaborate a suggestion towards it.


    I've been on reddit lately and it caught my attention of voting, people up can be a karma feature for best reply inside posts. Instead of just the OP having it where s/he chooses the best post it can also be optional by the Admin to set specific forum options that it can be voted by the board members as best answer or the OP of the post can just determine who gets it. So really its like a Reputation feature and poll feature in one.

    Bur of course if the admin allows it in the particular forum of how much power the OP can get; Voting or specific answer. The author isn't always correct, so by allowing this, it gives feedback by the community on who had the great answer.

    Thanks. :)
    But if not, it will look like an awesome application or hook if a developer would take this on.

    The Guy got a reaction from The Major in "IP.Mail"? Suggestion of Future (v4.x era) App   
    I am suggesting this as a future application that you guys could build when you guys move into the v4.x era, no sooner than later, so I am not looking into this like really soon project. So if people do so happen to support this topic, please do not demand it. It was just a thoughtful idea. Plus, i do think it was suggested a long time ago, so if for some reason that I may have missed it or it WAS an application, don't be afraid to shoot me down for it.

    Again, before I continue though, I'm sure this idea has been brought up before. And I'll support the staff for whatever reason if they say no because as of right now they already have top-of-the-line applications such as Nexus and Blog etc.


    My idea for IP.Mail

    It would be really cool if you guys made a indvidule app where users may implement a E-Mailing System that can be easily accessed by users and administrators. Unlike cPanel where they use 3rd party Apps like Squirel Mail etc, IP.Mail has its own perks and professtional design that can be a slave or master application.

    Administrators Interface

    Admins needs to reach out to their user base by letting them know on such occations like Billing, Newsletters, and well anything really important. So instead of manualy using all these other path ways to intergrate your server to your mailling system, why not make a complete application based on your mailing system.

    For example you can deticate your Billing Team to billing@domain.com and have their e-mails be setup where whom will get it by forwarding to a active billing agent that can respond to them soon using a queue system. Perhaps make it where tickets are made on Nexus it will forward to an agent's e-mail so they can respond much faster.

    Also IP.Mail can be used for users to sign up for their own e-mail account on your forums. And with IP.Nexus you can intergrate it where users can purchase a e-mail slot that goes directly to your site.

    Plus, you can make custom designs on what your newsletters will look like to your subscribers and/or customers.

    A complete interface so that its a all-in-one managed area where Administrators can add/disable e-mails.

    Users/Customers Interface

    Some Users or customers whould be so pleased to have a mailing system that is there where they can store e-mails and be apart of something unique. Of course the PM system has always been there for us. But of course what about those who would like to get so in deph with the concept of easy access or even community access.

    I see two perks for this would work like this....

    Perk 1. Within the forums a user can be sent an e-mail from another user like this:


    From @ChadA To @SindeyDx2x2 Subject: Hey this is pretty Cool Hey Sindey, I'm likeing this new IP.Mail application from IPS, we should use it more. -------------------------------------------- From @SindeyDx2x2 To @ChadA Cc/Invite @Mattinc, @DestroyerBK, @TotalCoolDude Subject: RE: Hey this is pretty Cool I completely agree, Chad. I also invited our friends to this e-mail conversation.










    Anyway, that is just an idea of it, you may twist a few things around if you want. That's my idea of "IP.Mail."

    Thanks!
    Notice I put a "@" as the preffix. That can be the user to user mailing system within the mail system. And with outmail it will be something like ChadA@domain.com. The suffix is plain e-mail to another person off site that is not registered to the site.
    People may not use your mailing service if they do not want to, they can just use PM, but within the PM system people that are identified with a preffixed "@" is a e-mail registered user.
    Perk 2.
    As many may say, there are several thousands to even millions of different mailing services out there. Make your community unique with using the option to sync your notifications and everything to your phone etc. This will also help in a way so that admins may send out newsletters to their users faster than ever and recieve feedback from you. They even may want to talk to you about your feedback, this way your guranteed a patton about your inovative idea to their site. Or perhaps discuss your resume and application to becoming staff in complete privacy.
    Whatever the case may be, it can be something very useful.
