  1. We no longer sell Invision Community Classic with individual applications. This is in preparation for v5 where there will no longer be a separation for the "applications" like there is now. It will just be all bundled together and more tightly integrated. Old pricing for full Invision Community Classic was $850 upfront and $300 per year. New pricing is $499 upfront and $199 per year. You can reach out to sales if you have questions about pricing or options.
  2. Sure. Basically, when we think Daniel, we think llamas.
  3. Funny you say that. Holidays are always busy in terms of attacks and such. For example, we always make a point to keep a close watch on Christmas Day as there is always something.
  4. I know many of you are very curious how our cloud services work and how we manage things when we service thousands of Invision Community-powered sites on our platform. I am writing this quick post because I just got an alert from our monitoring systems and signed on to see what was happening. We use AWS WAF with both managed rules and our own, custom rule sets. With those both combined, we are able to filter a lot of malicious traffic. Sometimes people do attempt a direct attack on one of the communities we host. That is what is going on today. As I am typing this, our WAF setup is blocking 10 million requests per minute on our network. Yet, even with that huge amount of inbound traffic, our actual operations are not impacted at all. This is one of the advantages of a robust network backing your community. I just thought I would share because 1. our monitoring summoned our team to look at "abnormal traffic" and 2. I thought you might find this interesting.
  5. We are not adding support for MyISAM when MySQL itself defaults to InnoDB. You should either switch to our cloud services or get a competent host. It is so written.
  6. If your host is defaulting to MyISAM, you need a new host πŸ™‚ InnoDB has been the default since MySQL 5.5 release in July 2010. I would say if your host is 13 years behind the times then you need to move along.
  7. Today would be the last day of access.
  8. Hi! I replied to your email you sent on June 9 on June 11. Please check your junk folder. I will reply again now.
  9. Courses is available on the following packages: Creator Pro Team Business Enterprise Courses is not available on: Beginner Creator Classic (self-hosted) Feel free to reach out about upgrading your services. You can PM me or contact sales πŸ˜€
  10. In that case you would want to put those services in your third-party list if you are concerned. We are looking into opt-in third party loading in a future improvement to privacy controls though. It's an ongoing project πŸ˜€
  11. Courses is available on the following packages: Creator Pro Team Business Enterprise Courses is not available on: Beginner Creator Classic (self-hosted) Feel free to reach out about upgrading your services. You can PM me or contact sales πŸ˜€
  12. Yes, you can choose to anonymize content. In fact, that is what I recommend to clients πŸ™‚
  13. Totally feel where you are coming from but it's only a handful of people panicking over nothing. The vast majority of people pay attention to their own communities, not what is going on here πŸ™‚ We expect it will calm down when people see that Classic is not going away. Also, as people understand cloud and Classic are different product lines it will be clearer. The next several months of additions will be available on both cloud and Classic lines too.
  14. We have not posted anything formally, but you are free to create your own LMS if you like.
  15. For any issues with your cloud services, it is best to email in πŸ™‚ I will send this issue in for you now.
  16. I truly don’t mean this as a sales pitch πŸ˜€ but… have you considered moving to our cloud services where you never have to think about server management again?
  17. There is a full screen button in Live Topics. Try that next time and see what you think.
  18. It's linked at the bottom of every release notes πŸ™‚ You can also follow it if you like but it's not posted to very often.
  19. We are removing support for plugins and instead you should use the applications system. Applications are more flexible than plugins and easier to manage. Any existing plugins can easily be ported to applications and we encourage third-parties to start the process as soon as possible.
  20. The friendly URL (FURL) system is highly recommended currently and will be required in Invision Community 5. All Cloud clients automatically have FURLs enabled automatically so there is no change for those communities.
  21. The profile status updates system is a holdover from decades ago and will be removed in Invision Community 5.
