    Currently users can add whatever they want in the signature. For forums that require users to have a simple and short signature, it would be great to have options to restrict embeds like videos, images and certain font sizes.

    Agreed with the OP. Unfortunately I don't think your sound logic is getting through to everyone. If you like the way commerce works now, then great, I'm glad it works for you. It clearly doesn't work for every use case and the argument that those who want options to simplify the system just want to avoid taxes is insulting and completely besides the point that the OP was making.

    Agree, especially embeds. It's been suggested many times, you can check the first link here for the IPS response.

    As mentioned before it would be great that through the Donations module you could purchase points

    For me the features should include:
    Be able to rename the points, i.e. 'beer' Be able to buy points via PayPal, e.g one point = £3.00 Able to give points to other users

    You do not need a address for every transaction.
    If I own a shop and I sell a product over the counter, I do not ask them for their address. It's not a requirement.
    I do a self assessment each year, should they investigate me for income/outcome, I can show them my source of income in both IPB and PayPal without addresses and completely legitimately.
    Further, I said:

    I don't want to get in a discussion about tax because that's not what I'm trying to suggest. I just want to make it SIMPLER.
    PayPal records the users address, why can't it just push this address through, instead of them having to type it again, it would solve my issue straight away.
    And while I've not tested it the IPB commerce then allow a "donations" system, that if I'm not mistaken requires no address, if this is possible, why can't the Subscriptions?
    I still don't see why IPB doesn't just give a choice and please everyone.

    Hello,
    I've had my forum for just over 12 years now, for the majority I've ran a subscription service that simply charges $10/year through a PayPal payment, they then get upgraded to a different user group and offered more forum features, no advertisements and prize draws.
    This was the majority of my income, unfortunately, since IPB4, that now makes adding an address on checkout compulsory (which is not relevant for either me or my members) it is grossly off putting and deters people away from upgrading.
    Further more, the invoice system is a joke, it's a fun, community forum. I completely understand the requirements of invoicing for business but it needs to be simplified, most teenagers or young adults, have no idea what to do with paying invoices upon renewal, it's confusing and again, a deterrent.
    My income has dropped by over half since these changes, people just can't be bothered and uneasy with entering address details for a simple 'donation' subscription.
    I desperately ask for there to be an option to do a simple Paypal checkout with no address requirement for Subscriptions like IPB have done in the past. This is the first change IPB have done I am very strongly against in the 12 years of using them.
    Thank-you,
    Nick.

    Exactly! Hope they fix the forum browsing soon. Reading a topic should not remove you from the forum you are reading it in.

    but....
    as above posts report ... it doesn't work, in fact i found out that rather than inform members how active your forum is it does the opposite - it gives a false reading that your site is less active than it actually is
    i gave it a test and switched off after a few days after seeing how poor it was

    Are there any plugins that implement currently browsing functionality? Coming from vB, fourms look so dead without it.

    You can use any HTML for formatting. So yes, you may use font icons or svg if you so choose, as long as it fits within the character limit.
