    Kjell Iver Johansen got a reaction from Sonya* in New Topic Rules   
    @Adriano Faria - do you think you could add Topic as well?
    I have one popular topic and need to have people to accept the rule before posting in that one topic only.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Mr 13 in Licence key problem caused performance issues on our sites   
    My websites slowed down dramatically when this problem with licence keys appeared. Please rework this part of IPS (which rechecking expired/invalid licence keys, or whatever it does what causing the problem), this must be implemented as background task, so our websites must not be affected when there is a problems on your side.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Adriano Faria in Couple of thoughts on the post before registering   
    I'm not sure I follow what the users says, but I guess he's right. Post Before Registering is based on a cookie and cookies aren't shared between browsers. Just made a test on Firefox:

    Then I just open Chrome and it's not there:

    So when iOS opens another app, data isn't there.
    I think he's talking about that.

    I submitted a resource to the marketplace and it is currently awaiting for approval but I start to believe, due to staff replies here and in other topics, that it won't be approved because they want this feature to be the way they did. If it doesn't get approved here, I will probably sell this on my site. Screens:

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to CodingJungle in CodingJungle's Apps [support topic]   
    sorry guys, i haven't had much time lately. personal life things. My twin sister had an emergency surgery and was staying with her to help her out till her husband got home. I just got back to my home today (back to civilization, my sister lives in the buttcrack of the midwest, in a town that has more cows than people and i'm pretty sure the town's welcoming sign's population count was approaching negative). I should take pictures of where she lives, its insane how isolated you are, but her street looks like a suburban street, with lights, road signs, crosswalks, sidewalks, but her house is the only one there, the rest is all farmland. its pretty wild. anyway, her internet is from like 1998 and the fastest i was able to connect to at any time was about 1mbps, it took 12 minutes to load up a 4 minute 480p youtube video. so i'm back at my house, with my 1 gigabyte connection. 
    give me a few days and everything should be back on schedule with the 4.4 updates. @SJ77 if you are getting PM's, it means its detecting you using an alt account. if you want admins/moderators to be excluded, in the apps settings, just select which groups to be excluded. if you want individual members to be excluded, you can go to their member's form in the ACP and go to the duplicate members tab and tell it to exclude them. if you've already done those things, let me know, i'll check to see what the problem is.

    They do from the menu - called something else suitable on my language. There is 5-10 people chatting every night, and this is the main reason people like to meet and great, and also relationships has started there, so it is good. Mostly old IRC'ers.. 🙂

    My custom made app (thanks fiverr) uses Google Firebase for push notifications to both Android and Apple apps that i've had developed.  I can manually send a push notification, but it would be good if a developer made one that interfaced with it for IPS.  I'd pay for the app even

    I have now moved one of my sites to the IPS cloud, and my members start to complain about slow speed. They where used to lightning fast speed on the website, but now it is much slower.  I notice it myselve also.
    Does IPS have any plan to move cloud-servers to EU area? I'm in Norway?

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to princeton in Profiles: Can they be improved?   
    Let me start by saying that IPS did a great job with Profiles.  It stands apart from other systems.
    But, how many of your members take ownership? 
    When you have a small site it may not matter much but what if you have 25,000, 75,000, 500,000, or 1 million members?
    For most admins, Profiles...
    Pageviews is low. Bounce Rate is high. Time On Page is horrible. ROI is non-existent. Wouldn't it be great if we could improve all of the above?
    For many, that could mean...
    More Pageviews More ad impressions More revenue More traffic More members? Increase Content Discovery? Increase Followers? Individual Brand exposure? This is an opportunity. 
    To me, Profiles is just another section of the site. A section that for the most part hasn't changed much. 
    Imagine this ...
    Profiles growing in popularity.
    Members taking ownership of their profiles. Making it work for them instead of something that they ignore.
    Members sharing their profile. eg. "Look up my profile  @ XYZ site."
    Members investing more time learning about each other - building a stronger community.
    So, how can we improve it?
    User behavior and expectations are changing. We need to turn the tide.
    Users are more protective these days. Cautious. They think twice before giving up any information.
    If this trend continues ... How can we trust each other? How can we trust what we read?
    I think Profiles can help.
    What do you think? Is it even possible for IPS to improve Profiles?
    Share your thoughts.
    Even if its something as simple as improving SPEED. ✔️

    Kjell Iver Johansen got a reaction from Owdy in This site - unlogical navigation?   
    I use chrome on an iphone.
    I open https://invisioncommunity.com/ and get a screen like this - as far as I can see there is no way to get to the notifications page without tapping several times..
     I can see that I have 4 notifications, but to read the notifications I'll have to tap 6 times..
     2
    3
    4
     
    5
     
    And on the 6th tap I can see my notifications. Userfriendly? At least it should have been a link in the black field at the bottom of the first screen, as it is with only one notification, or have the notificationmenu - as we have on the desktop version.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to batarjal in ThreadStarter: Music   
    Hello - The plugin uses theaudiodb.com as data source:
    https://www.theaudiodb.com/
    To get the plugin working you do not need to register anywhere
     
    If the artist you want to add is not available on theaudiodb.com it can be imported simply by using the add button (you need to be registered there) and it can be imported from MusicBrainz and it will be available in the plugin instantly as long as a cover art or artist photo is available.
    The cover art / photo requirement could be removed from the plugin in future versions if it helps with less known artists.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Davyc in The future of forums... let's talk!   
    Content is important, but more important is having members being proactive and actually discussing topics rather than just commenting on them.
    Scenario:  Someone uploads a video of something of interest - those who are registered can 'comment' on the video.  Where's the discussion?  Where's the interaction? Where's the dissection of the video?  If all people do is comment - 'ooh I like this', 'ohh that's crap' then we devolve into the realms of Social Media, such as FB.
    Comments are just that, a comment, whereas a full blown topic can create a great discussion.  This is what's lacking, there's too much commenting and not enough deep involvement, something to get your teeth into and really have a good go at; such as this topic.  You would never get the kind of interaction on SM that takes place here.
    Do we really want forums to devolve rather than evolve and try and get people weaned off the one-line comment into advanced discussions?  This is what I miss - and I see it in forums where people just comment - like, hate, great, rubbish etc. without any explanation as to 'why' they have commented.
    It's important for forums to advance people, get them involved and thinking about whatever - to limit them to just a comment is demeaning and unproductive and non-intuitive. 
    Just my humble opinion

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Davyc in The future of forums... let's talk!   
    The problem at hand is that we have an audience comprised mainly of consumers who have little or no interest in contributing in an arena that has little or no traction.  With Facebook (and I detest this platform with a vengeance because of it's brainwashing of the consumer into believing that banal comments are the order of the day, and more) you have a ready-made audience that is already there and all you have to do is tap into it.
    People are consumers and all they want is content that they can consume, but not contribute to; that takes effort - registering, confirming your email, learning the system and then realising that you have more space in which to present your own content.  It's too difficult for them, even though the process is so easy, but it eludes them.
    I've done this numerous times - opened a Twitter account (I rate Twitter slightly above Facebook, but not by much) sent out a Tweet that links to a topic - the numbers are high that flood the forum to see that content and once they have consumed it, the disappear until the next Tweet and they flock back, but never stop to explore or register and contribute,
    So whilst some believe that content is king, that may be the case, but it doesn't translate into registrations and member contribution - it's just another piece of information that can be consumed.  It sucks, big time, but that is where we are at this point in time.  If Facebook and Twitter (along with a few others) were to disappear then forums would once again be king.
    That doesn't mean that we have to stop trying - somewhere along the line people may, at last, realise that forums offer so much more than so-called social media platforms and they may come back into the fold; there is no timescale that can be applied, so don't hold your breath.
    Today forums have to offer something that social media cannot, and that's a big ask when there is so much information out there to be consumed.  Therein lies the problem at base level, people want to consume but give nothing back in return; the numbers validate that and it's a sad situation.  All we can do is keep the faith and continue to offer whatever we can and hope that it's enough to attract more people into the fold.
    My latest site has been visited more times by would-be spammers than people who are interested in the content; Twitter gets people there and they read what is on offer, but they never contribute or comment - sad.
