  1. Are forum communities dead?

    It's hard to believe, but when I registered here I was just shy of 14. I'm almost 28. I'm user #306. These forums were very different back in 2004, and attracted a lot of cool people. Those very people have moved on with their lives (as have I). Forums boomed from 2002 through 2008 because there simple wasn't an alternative. 2009 marked a turning point for many technologies. The financial panic created a "shake out" not just on the Internet, but in the physical world. People looked at budgets and looked at alternative tools. Communities utilizing forum software will always be around, but general forum software is definitely in a bear market. People use Facebook/twitter/reddit for a range of things that used to be individual websites hosting forums. I remember iKonboard and vBulletin 2.x, and thinking how cool those things were. Those days are over, but I still reminisce. From 1998 through 2008, the tech world was "stable": dominated by IE6 and Microsoft. People viewed the Internet through a browser and conversed using forums. From 2009 through probably 2019, we'll look back and notice the world dominated by a more chaotic mix of Apple/Android devices and desktop experiences. There's much more variety on the Internet today.

  5. Subscriptions Manager

    When you register, you can select the radio button/text... but, on the subscriptions tab, only the radio button is selectable. Also, do you think Amazon Payments will be supported at all? Thanks

    Is there a way to make it so, you can select the text besides the radio button?
  7. Subscriptions Manager

    Fantastic, thank you!
  8. Subscriptions Manager

    When a user goes through and makes a purchase, do they get redirected back to my site?
  9. Subscriptions Manager

    Also, do we have to set up the website redirect in our paypal options, or once the user goes to pay, does it redirect them back to our forums?
  10. Subscriptions Manager

    Michael, Is there a way to enable the ENHANCED paypal page? I notice that it defaults to classic.
  11. cyberduck vs filezilla?

    which one do you guys think is better?
  12. Portal

    Is it possible to display latest posts from a specific forum, rather than from all forums?
  13. Search through marketplace awful

    I'm confused. There are two search boxes... I see now.
  14. Portal

    How do we edit the footer, the 'v1.0.1' and based on portal feature? I'd like to consolidate this to one line.
  15. There is no search in the marketplace... please add this!
