    Since when is all nudity classed as porn?  😆
    Even with a safe search filter, there will be nudity.

    @opentype  That's interesting, and I don't mean that sarcastically.  I have yet to find anyone who doesn't use it, let alone heard of it, but then again I am in a completely different demographic than most people here.. which I might have made minor complaints about once or twice.  😅

    ahc got a reaction from sobrenome in 4.4.2 & PHP 7.3.3 & Redis issue   
    I had a similar issue when I switched over last month and had to temporarily disable cron tasks.
    My network admin was able to fix it and get cron back up and running the same day without having to switch from memcached, and I believe the resolution was downgrading back to php 7.1, because for some reason it won't behave properly with 7.2+ otherwise.  My knowledge pretty much ends there and I can't explain the how or why.

    I send about 180k/m but it would cost more to choose the 100k plan and then be charged the fee for each additional email over that.  A lot of our members prefer to get email notifications since they pop up on their mobile.  Good alternative until our website's mobile app is finished and they finally get push notifications.

    We stopped using SendGrid for this reason.  More than half of our emails were not being delivered because we kept being assigned IP addresses that were blocked by most of the top providers.  When I sent in a ticket, they told me I would need to pay more money or just deal with it because they don't try to get their IPs unblocked.
    I dealt with it by deleting my SendGrid account.  They got rid of SparkPost integration because of numerous issues and terrible customer service, but I actually had zero issues using SparkPost where I've always had those issues with SendGrid.

    ahc got a reaction from Telemacus2 in Removal of $15 Domain Change   
    This argument makes no sense to me, because in my short time on IPB, I've been burned and scammed by purchasing numerous plugins and apps from devs that have disappeared or would submit something to get as many sales with the promise of future updates and support, only to remove their item once people start requesting the services promised.  Literally spent nearly $100 for a single app for it to be removed less than a week later and denied a refund by the dev.
    So, basically nothing is changing except that I can choose to pay a now extra $190 each year to deal with this and keep my 3rd party apps updated, or I can just.. not. 
    You can pretend that they're making the marketplace better for everyone, but in the end they're just punishing the ones who weren't doing anything wrong in the first place.  They think they can somehow keep people from finding ways to get the content on this site without having a license when they can't.  There are currently 3 websites at the top of google that always have the latest marketplace items and update their content almost as quickly as it gets uploaded here.

    Hello @Fosters just checking in.
    Any ETA on when this will be upgraded?  It currently does not work on 4.5 and is the last essential application we're waiting on an upgrade for.

    I'm literally scouring Invision trying to find the plugin that does this.  Could I pretty please have a link?  Thank you!!
    Also @DawPi Yes, having it send an inline notification that links members to the content that was moderated instead of sending a PM would be absolutely amazing.  We used the Rules app to create various triggers to send automatic notifications for nearly every moderator action and we would jump on your app immediately if it had this functionality.  

    Sending a mass of PMs for everything is very old-school (in my opinion) and not something a lot of people like, especially in communities where PMs are used to conduct business.  Automatic PMs feel almost like spam when a quick notification is all that's needed.

    I do just want to note - you can use any service that supports SMTP delivery using the built in SMTP option. You don't necessarily need a specific API to send emails. 
    (This post is not discounting the rest of the conversation, I just want to be sure anyone who comes across this realizes you can still use Sparkpost or whatever else via SMTP if you want)

    @breatheheavy  SparkPost is compatible via SMTP only, but it used to be fully integrated just like SendGrid until Invision removed it.  It's cheaper and more reliable in a lot of ways than SendGrid ever has been.
    I haven't looked too much into other options outside of SparkPost because we switched back to using our server which is doing okay for now.
    I forgot to also note that when I first created my SendGrid account, they suspended it a few hours later because they thought I stole someone's registered business information to sign up for an account without giving me the option to verify.  It took several weeks for me to prove that I owned the business.  SendGrid can shove it where the sun doesn't shine for all I care.

    @Noah F  Make sure you don't have any pending renewals that you need to pay.  It won't let you install updates otherwise.
    I just updated the app to 3.3.1 and our 4 applications have disappeared from the front-end but are still present within the ACP.  
    Never mind, I see there's a new toggle setting on the applications to choose to show them on the index page!

    It's fine.  I don't want you to go through all of the extra trouble of having this made just for me (so far).  I'm fine with remaking them, I just wanted to avoid the announcement about 2-3 year old rewards being reset.  We'll just keep iAwards until we set up and finish adding all the new awards with your app and then pull a little switcharoo.  😋

    @InvisionHQ  Two questions.
    Is there a way for someone to create an advert and leave it up indefinitely/forever, generating multiple sales on the same advert without ever expiring or being marked sold? 
    Is there a way for people to include optional add-ons customers can select when buying an advert if the seller wants to offer premium services for an additional charge?
    Thank you!

    ahc got a reaction from Matt in Ban members from downvoting   
    I understand your perspective, but I disagree with part of it.  I don't look at downvoting as an "attack", and that comparison is sorta the mentality that can make it become toxic.  Like numerous other users in the past have said when this topic gets brought up, there's no point in advertising having a reputation system if your reputation can only be positive in my opinion.  It's like video games that pretend to give you freedom of choice, but in the end you're always locked into playing the role of the do-gooder hero.
    Our website utilizes both positive and negative reactions, and in doing so it has helped trim out toxic and malicious users, or forces them to change their ways, without the community feeling like big brother(staff) is always watching or trying to get involved when technically no rule violation has occurred.  A reputation system like Reddit's would be the dream.  😋

    If they're unrelated issues we prefer to have them split between tickets. Some issues may need escalating and some may not.
