  1. Hi, i am thinking on buying Stratagem. I have some questions, as for the screenshots i can't still understand how exactly the app works: What is exactly the relationship with the clubs app? Can a project be created inside a club and appear as new tab in it? Or it is the other way around, i.e., you can create a club inside of a project? Are there plans for an integration with MS Teams? I know it supports slack, but Teams is now the king in the field... Can the sockets be implemented in my own server, or it is a remote service only? Regards
  2. I am onboard with IPS for long, and here is my positive feedback on the current state of the nation: - I love the strategy of moving from Pure forum to communities, with a tightly integrantes set of apps. This was a crucial move that allowed IPS to escape from the fierce competitivo on a shrinking market. As everybody knows, fóruns are disappearing, yet people are still getting together. This is why i prefer IPS package Over XF ir VB because there is a whole set of tightly packed tools to get my people collaborating. - I love the new theme. "Oh it's too white" "oh só much whit
  3. I do not know how you can be so sure... i am always a man full of doubts, i am always amazed when someone makes such bold assertions. I can't agree with you here, sorry. When i look at XF, it is only good at classic forum software. But classic forums are "no more" and they are dying. IPS has followed a different strategy, and imho, a right strategy, of putting a set of tighly coupled apps for community management. The other company that has been following that approach (but they have always taken that direction is Wolt Lab with corporate customers, still, they are lagging behind IPS in
  4. They can do what they like except for violating the conditions which they and their useds abode when buying the license.
  5. That is true for the cloud version, but not to the on premise version.
  6. Totally agree. You buy an APP, you retain the right to use it, regardless of having an active IPS licence.
  7. I would start by overriding the CSS custom properties at the custom.css (ex: divide their value by 4)
  8. Good point. I agree, it can, but this is not an undeniable statement... so they used "can" to express possibility. Sey have reviewed their stance on it. It really depends on each case, and that has also to be balanced with aesthethics, text clearness, element organization and placement. And if you have a big screen, too much content can be really overwhelming. Still, you can always customize the theme to reduce the spacing if you want.
  9. Of course everyone is allowed. Opinions are the source of a good discussion, specially when they oppose each other. You don't like the white spacing as it is, it is a perfectly reasonable opinion. I like it and i think this theme is a nice improvement over the previous one - also a perfecly reasonable opinion. Now, i wouldn't like the white spacing to be reversed or shrunk. First, because i my opinion is exactly opposite (fair enough, i guess 😄 ), and second, because there is not any objective data to support the opinion that shrinking the white space would improve the interaction.
  10. I see too much criticism here for the theme and the white space. UX is always a matter of discussion, and everyone has its personal tastes. Now try to put personal tastes aside, because everyone has his own ones. Do you have any UX test metrics other than "i don't like it" to present to support your views? My opinion is, this new theme is great improvement over the previous one. Is it perfect? No, specially mobile-wise topic page navigation (you have to completely scroll down or up to move to next page, which is not user friendly, for example - surely this can be measured) but regar
  11. This is a prevalent issue since 4.0 was launched. IPS needs to fix this.
  12. It is awesome to know that there are people who are doing great and making good Money with their work on communities. It means that, it is possible to get rewarded by your work and there are business models which are effective.
  13. Google ads is also not a very good option for me... maybe for high CPC countries like USA, UK, Canada and Germany may be an option, but i just make about 20€ per month out of it. I have more success with affiliate links in my niche market: much less intrusive and a bit better.
  14. Out of curiosity, i would like to have a picture on how profitable communities are nowadays. I believe that everyone share the same curiosity. Please vote (i seems that answers are anonymous) I am in the 0 to 500USD range (yearly), considering all the costs (license and server). Very far from making a life out of it 😄
  15. I believe it says nothing at all. It is just messing up with the css variables. From browser-side it is everything fine, so i would dismiss that report.
