  1. What if that describes my one's entire community?
  2. Should we remove all colors too? May go all black and white? Maybe they can change their domain to just website.com to ensure full generic compliance? Really as a product driven website, it makes the most sense for them to showcase their product features and offerings, and perhaps apply their known best of breed use case patterns so others can replicate their success. Or just go full generic so everyone can be a robot with zero personality and nothing stands out commanding unique attention. Psssst it's OK to have fun! 😁
  3. We call him Jordan, but that's also fine. Gotta say that one made me chuckle 🤣 Good idea removing the negative reactions, agree they generally spark negative responses/replies. Also a good point by @Jordan identifying the general positive sentiment garnered from a positive reaction versus provoking users to provide more of a textual response explaining their discontent (rather than leaving it to fester in the brain of the OP they reacted to).
  4. Definitely not a high priority, might just be a low hanging fruit impl given the inclusion already exists, adding exclusion may be a relatively futile work effort. For my site, we add RSS feeds, sponsors, etc to their own forum from time to time and have to tweak the stream config. Not a big deal, but the exclusions are pretty fixed and don't change often/ever whereas the inclusions do. We have quite a few forums (a little under 100) as it's a broad niche with broad interests. So it becomes select 90+ versus select 2-3 (that don't change) for our global stream. However, for members who create custom streams, each one has to select 90+ inclusions to get what they really want versus selecting < 10 exclusions they don't want, which is just inconvenient. Just something to think about if it's an easy/straightforward impl for you guys 🙂
  5. Just a request to add an exclude filter on Activity Streams, as the inverse of the inclusion filter. Use case is I have a Recent Topics stream that has pretty much all forums except a few and it requires selecting a lot of them versus selecting just a few.
  6. Any chance you can add support for Venmo as a payment option now that they support business profiles? I get a lot of requests from members to pay via Venmo and have pushed them to use PayPal given Venmo didn't allow business transactions before. I know Venmo is owned by PayPal but for mobile users there is a strong preference and ease of use with Venmo https://venmo.com/business/start/
  7. Absolutely, not a forced integration, just an optional one. As an aside, what kind of cost do you see going to S3. A few dollars for how much video? Video files are generally huge and if you're storing a lot of them, I'd imagine it would be more than a few dollars a month on S3, no?
  8. Possible to also maybe offer an automated YouTube/Vimeo/etc integration? Undoubtedly videos absorb a ton of my storage space, and it seems somewhat unnecessary (or at least sub-optimal) considering the limitations of embeds and the superior video processing/handling YouTube/Vimeo offer along with free storage. That would be a huge selling point for IPS to offer such native integration and cost savings to it's customers. Not to mention it's probably easier/better than IPS trying to tackle the video processing/handling and limitations.
  9. YouTube used to support uploading via an email address, but they eventually terminated that feature. Before then, I would use it and have members just email their videos, it would upload automatically to the channel and set it to Unlisted where I would review and approve it. Took a lot of the legwork out but a lot of manual work still there. Agree, you wouldn't want to blanket trust random members to upload TOS conforming videos, you'd need some level of mod/admin approval workflow in there too.
    Works great! Easy install and setup for Amazon. Was tired of manually seeking out and updating the Amazon links my members would post just to add my affiliate tag. This app automates all of that and not only ensures you don't overlook updating any links, but that you don't miss the most important first wave of views and clicks! Nicely done @DawPi!
  10. Still the same download links for MOV, as others have stated with the reasoning as to why. Video is obviously an important element of forum posting nowadays, unfortunately this is a caveat for users and discourages them from posting movies when they don't get the auto-embedding. Has anyone figured out how to auto-upload to your site's YouTube channel when a video file is uploaded, then replacing/embedding that YouTube link instead? Would be nice from a lot of perspectives: comprehensive video processing, externalized storage (not tanking your host storage or S3, etc).
  11. Curious to see what you all think of a Guest IP resolving to an AWS EC2 instance (per the hostname), 3.81.x.x range. My first thought was screen scraping through a proxied EC2 instance since many bots are blocked? Just not sure how "worth it" that is...or really doing anything as a guest via an EC2 instance (especially with my site).
