  1. This must be really hard to code or something? How do Twitter, FB and every other site on the planet have a pretty standard "Block user" functionality?
  2. #hashtags are sorely needed. 2010 called and they are asking how you missed that class.
  3. I have this same request from a user right now. Please enable! @Miss_B does your plugin equate to "Shadow banning"?
  4. Is this a known issue for one of my newest bloggers? This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations. line 2, column 36: title should not be blank [help] <rss version="2.0"><channel><title/><link>https://www.theworldnewsmedia.org/ ... ^ line 4, column 7: description should not contain HTML: p [help] </p>]]></description><language>en</language><item><title>80% of Covid19 inte ... ^ line 3, column 0: description should not contain ipsnoembed attribute [help] Living life in the present one breath at a time. line 23, column 46: The specified guid is not sufficiently unique: 747 [help] ]]></description><guid isPermaLink="false">747</guid><pubDate>Sat, 28 Mar 20 ... ^ line 23, column 110: Missing atom:link with rel="self" [help] ...

  5. This is great news. The people who REALLY will want this will be the club creators themselves. ;-) Any idea on how to make this info available to them?
  6. is there away where each individual member could flag comments of choice? And that way it would be easier to find and reply to at a later time?
  7. It does "feel" as if content in clubs is somehow not ranked as high as the "main forum" posts. Is this true for anyone else? Is there a setting many of us are missing to ensure that the club posts are indeed in our sitemap?
  8. @Sonya* I learned a long time ago to never argue against women. The Princess Bride movie taught us all to just say: "As you wish"
  9. Interesting. That is somewhat calming. The way the law was reading .... I was about ready to throw in the towel.
  10. Sorry.... but a gif saying everything will be "ok" doesn't quite cut it does it? Work hard to make $100..... and almost unlimited risk if the wrong dept in CA focuses on your website? How is it worth it again? Risk/Reward... Hmmmm
  11. I have started a thread to the larger public (beyond Invision Community) about this threat: List of Websites that will be closing down on 12/31/2019 if the CCPA is not amended. https://www.theworldnewsmedia.org/topic/85387-list-of-websites-that-will-be-closing-down-on-december-31-2019-if-california-doesnt-amend-the-ccpa/?tab=comments#comment-135676
  12. Ironic that foreign communist states weren't able to censor our website... but California basically closes it down by making the risk/reward of using ads to monetize a website a no-brainer. Remember when the "Internet" had the promise of democracy built into it? Now it has become the enabler of monopolies, mobs and state censorship. Truly sad.
  13. This is serious stuff.... This article has a lot of information about the current status of this law and possible amendments, workarounds. Crossing our fingers... https://www.theballeronabudget.com/what-is-the-ccpa-and-how-will-it-affect-your-online-income/
  14. Wowzers is right! I think this just might be the death knell for my once great internet aspirations. Why risk MASSIVE fines or even lawsuits to earn $100/month? Now... just invest in the big guys... since they are only going to get bigger now after this. Imagine all the hours of every user across all the IPS sites.... now imagine 30% quit due to this draconian law...... millions of eyeball hours now going back Facebook, Twitter etc... who have the lawyers to fight this sort of law. Big guys win... little guys lose.... same old story.
  15. You just have to wonder if the big guys... FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.. are behind this knowing it will cause even 25% of their small time competitors to just dry up? As someone mentioned before... the risk/reward of owning a website/forum versus just being a user on some larger corporate owned one is changing fast. Reconsidering this whole venture now with my 16,000 users.....
  16. No one is asking for a "Slack Clone" We (I) am asking for "real-time" like Slack..... I officially give up. Let's all be happy with our stone chisels and call it a day!
  17. LOL..... Evidently it was just me. Thanks for the education guys.... I needed that. A little perspective never hurts
  18. In case anyone cannot picture what I am talking about. This is a screenshot of a private direct message between two people on Slack. (Yes they ALSO have public and private "channels" (groups)..... Except these feel "real-time".... To me if you want to talk "Permanent text".... let's compare stone on building exteriors as in Egyptian temples.
  19. Slack Direct Message to one or more parties = IPS personal message = I would reverse your logic and state... Why wouldn't any modern forum / social media want fast personal / direct messaging? What purpose does the 30 second delay and need to refresh the entire screen to see if someone responded actually serve? Is there a whole group of people I'm missing who love delays? I wonder if anyone ever said... "You'll need to provide a compelling reason why anyone would ever use an internet speed faster than 56K"
  20. 14 years ago someone made a thread with this title.... now archived..... I think it was some serious... ahead of their time thinking.... and something IPS should have listened to. Slack is basically doing this with their direct messages Anyone have any modern 2019 ideas on how this concept could be done correctly?
  21. Ever heard the saying "Less is more"? Look at Google's home page. it saddens me to say that I'm reading this in 2019.... and still have to say "See!"....
  22. Has anyone else noticed that IPS improves stuff according to what Google wants to see (code-wise)..... IPS makes the changes... wait a few months..... Google decides it doesn't like something else ... maybe because IPS sites start showing up in search results? Then Google sends a "warning" about some obscure IPS feature or lack thereof.... Google rankings suffer.... Rinse... Lather... Repeat.... Or is it just me?
