    Greetings,
    I would just like to thank all the staff of IPS, from the support team to the mods in the forums, especially: AndyF, Aiwa, Rhett, Mark, Keith, Ryan, Brandon and I probably missed one or two!

    Again, the team is so professional and helpful, I have rarely seen such a commitment! Sometimes my questions might seem "silly" or simplistic but they have helped me anyways and I learned a LOT!

    Thanks to all!

    Mikey B reacted to Charles in Enterprise Spam Mitigation - $200 a year... really?   
    We are not trying to be the cheapest of anything and in fact will openly say so. We provide quality support for our products. You talk about less expensive scripts but can you submit tickets at any time to them? No: they either charge extra for that or simply don't have that ability. Do you get competent, no-drama, shoe-wearing, and experienced development and management? Not even a little bit. Do their developers, managers, and owners talk to their clients? Barely. If you want cheap you can go somewhere else and get a company that removes features they don't know how to fix or are a cult of personality rather than a focused company doing what we do best.

    Yes copyright is expensive but keep in mind it costs is a lot when people remove our little line at the bottom. That's our advertising. We would have to greatly raise our fees if it wasn't there. Besides in our entire history it's something that like maybe 1% of people buy. It's not something most people even ask for let alone give a second thought.

    The enterprise spam service is designed for enterprise clients (of which we have quite a few very high-profile sites we manage). We do not expect the average community to have any need to purchase it. In fact, we don't even have it enabled here on our site because it's not necessary unless you have a specific need. And you don't see our forum filled with spam do you?

    So for those of you that are hand-wringing over non-issues I invite you to take a step back and ask yourself why you are. What is your goal and real concern? Has IPS ever, in its history, ever done anything even remotely like those "other guys" ... of course not because that would just be silly. IPS makes community software. That's what we do all day long. We are, if I may say so, really quite good at it.

    And for the record: 4.0 is not being delayed for things like this. It's not even the same people doing these items as working on 4.0. Plus 4.0 is way further along than our blog entries would have you believe as we are holding off on revealing the front end until we are ready.

    It's worth noting that the spam service itself is provided as a free value add to active licenses. Perhaps you're not aware that every registration of every active licensed IPS community cross-checks our network for the spam mitigation (provided the admin has it enabled, of course.) Naturally, there's a real cost involved in maintaining such a popular and to many, critical service. We absorb that cost as part of your license fees -- as well as development and operational costs, including support.

    We work hard at maintaining fair and competitive pricing and our base renewal of $25 has not changed literally in years, while we have continued to pile on additional value to the fee. There's obviously a limit and we have indeed made a recent shift away from underselling ourselves, while still remaining competitive on a core level. Does this mean we exist for the purpose of "money grabs" and "nickel and diming?" No, the implication is as silly as it is insulting. We are, however, a strong, ever-evolving company with employees, families, operational and development costs, etc. We're also a company that heavily reinvests in its products, services and in turn, our customers.

    Items such as the advanced spam mitigation and cloud options are not necessarily intended to target hobbyists; copyright removal is not intended to be attractive and thus they are not priced as such.

    I'm sorry you felt shunned by our blog entry. I don't agree with your sentiment, but appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts nonetheless.

    Mikey B got a reaction from Rhett in XenForo to IPB - Conversion Issue   
    Hello,
    Are you running the latest version of the IPS Converters? Did you run all of the steps in their correct order, and are you sure you're connected to the right database? Not a backup of before you converted over to XenForo perhaps? As Rhett said, if you're sure that you've done all of the above please let us know by submitting a ticket. :)
