  1. Maybe I'm missing something or just way out of the loop, but isn't this akin to adding another customizable profile field? Why not just make use of existing ones to do the work?
  2. I think this enhancement is rather important, as it helps to make an admins job easier and less time consuming. I'm sure they are working to address any bugs/issues with meta tags, and a link preview isn't that great of a priority.
  3. Can you find and show us the equation that goes beyond "approximation" and hits in the "ETA" territory? Or would it be too big to fit on the screen?
  4. I already know of a couple of enhancements that might be beneficial. Being able to customize the priority of the different types of notifications, both on a "global" level and then on a group level. Certain notifications may be considered top priority to the site owner, and thus should always be top of the list, but then have certain admin groups that have access to the same content, but need to have different priorities. ex, Security exploit fix notice from IPS appearing at the very top, but for a group that handles user related items, new users should appear first for them, while someone in a group that focuses on support tickets should see anything 'critical' in that area first (below the global priority notices). Is this something that might be added after the initial release of this new feature?
  5. Perhaps you are referring to this? https://seqlegal.com/free-legal-documents/privacy-policy
  6. When hackers and scammers from across the world are able to go unidentified, that claim of 'fallacy' becomes incredibly weak. I reside in the U.S., and I don't care about European laws. However, that is beside the point. I'm sure if you dig into the history of European courts, you'll find many decisions that make no sense now, but were considered to be the correct interpretation of the law at the time. I'm not talking about decisions where laws have since changed, but rather, decisions that were later realized to be in error. There is a fine line between something being personal information because it is something that openly or easily identifies you (name, current address, etc), and numbers that are almost nothing more than a teeny tiny footstep that is mostly used for security or statistics. It's hard to write common sense into laws, which is why things like this happen.
  7. I suppose you've never heard the term, "opinion of the court?" There are some services which provide a random IP address each time someone connects via their service. The IP they had before is no longer theirs, and it never was. But if someone wants to argue that an IP address is personal information, then surveillance footage of people outside of stores and banks are personal information, as it provides information on where they were at a particular time. Let's also keep in mind the fact that those who interpret the laws don't always fully understand what they are deciding. Not only that, but sometimes the laws aren't clear enough or up-to-date enough to allow for proper decisions. I know of a streamer who has been ordered to not stream for a number of years because her (now ex) husband took her to court. Between the laws being behind the times and the courts not being fully aware of what it was deciding, it hurt her big time. It was her means of income (she was doing well) and he only did it to be spiteful. She also had to forfeit her streaming account, which promptly got turned over to a relative of his. (For the record, that didn't last long. It sank really fast.) Point being, until there are tech savvy people on the benches, you'll have some rulings that aren't quite right. If you still doubt my point, consider this... If IP addresses are so personal, then why are so many trolls able to hide behind anonymity on the net? It's a lot less personal than people think.
  8. There is another option. Retain the member ID (internally), but for each topic, have a pseudo-random number that remains consistent within that topic. That way, if there are multiple deleted accounts posted inside of a single topic, instead of a bunch of posts by "Guests," have unique Guest ID's for each 'person' so that it's easy to follow the discussion for that topic. But those ID's wouldn't match up in other discussions, so combing through would be a moot point. Perhaps even have a list of pseudo names to use (like a dictionary), with names like Sam, Pat, Sydney, George, etc (names that can be, or have been used for either gender). So one topic might have user 3312 as Guest Pat, while another might have them listed as Guest Bo. Easier to follow the flow of a single topic, but not easy to piece information together from multiple topics.
  9. With all due respect, the highest courts in Europe can only decide for Europe. Also, anyone who truly understands networking knows that an IP address isn't personal information, regardless of the opinion of a court.
  10. What about 16% off of new purchases (all apps), and 32% off renewals (16% sale discount, 16% loyalty discount, so 32%). If it were going to be 50%, I would say it should be on the Forums app, since that's what IPS started with, but with 16% on all, it would be inviting to potential new clients, or even to existing clients who are considering another purchase.

If I remember correctly, @Charles was also a part of that. AOL is still around. Same here. I was using IkonBoard for a couple of years of so, then when I noticed there were no new updates over a long period of time, as well as realizing that PHP seemed to be faster than .cgi(?), I went hunting for another product. The only one that met my requirements was IPB. It was a few months to a year or so after that I realized the connection. Quality speaks volumes, as well as customer support. Side tracking here - some other companies severely lack in decent customer support. One time when I received bad support from another company, I made a comment to one of the IPS staff in a chat that they could learn from IPS. He thought I was saying there was a problem with IPS support and I was quick to point out that IPS support is top notch, it was another company that was lacking in it. I guess I'm spoiled by expecting caring vs aggressive support.
  12. I'm confused. "bang" up to date? Is that intentional?
  13. I'd like to see a feature where packages can require that you be part of a particular club before being able to purchase (or even renew) that package. Either that, or where paying a membership to a club enables a package. An example would be a software developer wanting to limit access to products to those within a group. Let them in the group, they can purchase a package that grants them access to something online, or if they paid to join the group, the package is automatically added to their account. Other than that, wonderful addition. I doubt I'll get any use out of it, but I can already see how this will benefit many MANY communities.
  14. I have a Lifetime IP.Board license. But what would be the point?
