    Fairly few people know about the cookie thing, and we've had had a cookie-based tool on our previous platform and it worked very well.

    Then you have people that live in the same house, you have people that do share devices because they can't have a computer per person in their house or utilize public locations (like libraries) to register/view a site.
    No other service gives a flying pig's butt about it, why should you? If the new account isn't causing issues, why does it matter that they have re-registered?

    With FA6's release on the horizon (a little over a month), does Invision plan on updating the FA version anytime soon?  I've seen so many topics/posts from members asking for an update to FA5, but IPB 4.5 looks to still be using a version of FA4.

    So when you submit something to downloads you can’t rate (or last I checked) your own file. This should be either an option or the same for pages, forums etc. I think it’s silly to have an article rated by the person that made it. Unfortunately save for hiding or deleting it I can’t prevent it.

    We have talked about hashtags a lot internally over the years.

    The core issue is that we're just not sure how useful they are on a forum. They work on Twitter because it's the only way to create a 'channel' of similar discussions. There is no other way to separate out conversations. So adding the tag makes it clear you're talking about that topic.

    Obviously, with a forum you have categories, forums and topics. Adding a hashtag would be largely superfluous.

    We have a tagging system for content already, and I would say that 98% of Invision Communities do not use it, and of the 2%, a small handful use it in a meaningful way that aids content discovery.

    Hashtags are often mistyped further diluting the usefulness. Using your example, on twitter I've seen:

    #blacklivematter
    #blacklivesmatters
    #blm
    #blackouttuesday

    Twitter actually is smart enough to know these are largely the same topic, so you will often see something like:

    Trending
    #Blacklivesmatter
    Also talking about: #blm, #blackouttuesday

    That's a great system but takes a lot of AI/human collating and computing power.

    So our current position is simply that adding hashtags won't really increase content discovery in any meaningful way.

    Facebook has hashtags but almost no one uses them.

    Most hashtags are added for irony, like:

    We're not going to add hashtags into 4.5

    #sorryNotSorry

    This creates a bunch of records and consumes a chunk of computing power and database size for almost no purpose at all.

    I understand this viewpoint, but at the same time I also understand why so many people want features that exist on more mainstream social platforms due to the popularity and to have more of seamless transition.  People who are used to the way Twitter works would be more inclined to stick around on other websites that function like Twitter because people hate change and learning new things. 😛
    But I also agree that a lot of features people borderline harass the staff to add are things that could be done in a quick plugin or app to satisfy the needs of about ~50-100 communities and leave the rest of us that don't want it alone.
    Morrigan is correct.  We already have the tagging system that helps with content organization, I would much rather IPB improve upon this feature instead of adding something new or changing its function completely.  I wanted to compare how this test app functioned differently than tags just out of curiosity's sake.

    Besides all functions the top one missings are the application and the notifications. I believe if it was available we would seek less functions among the ones available in othe social media applications 😉

    I want to throw out there that hashtags (pound signs for us old people) mean something different on different media platforms. So making an educated and good decision on this is, and should be difficult.
    For example you use a hashtag in discord and other chat programs to link to separate rooms. Whereas they are used to link other content on social media streams. Its not quite the same thing to assume that a hashtag is just one thing.
    When you have a limited space to type content I can see how a hashtag is super important but you don't have a limited space on a forum. TO ME, I think that the better recommendation here is to make the tag section more prevalent as a hashtag center. Call it "Hashtags" call it something more media-centric. Allow people to #callit and then utilize them more for similar content.
    I don't think the problem is that we "need" hashtags but more that we need to make our tagging system work as if we already have them.

    250 cookies this was enough to make me run away from that site.
    I believe that here people want to have a board full of functions, make it weigh down a lot without thinking that those applications are better as external addons to avoid having an IP.Board really heavy. Hashtags, stories, tiktak embeed does a board really need these things?
    I think IP.Board has many big shortcomings, but these are just the last on the list. one thing that comes to mind all of a sudden is link cleaning ie, convert a link:
    https://www.amazon.com/LG-OLED55CXPUA-Alexa-Built-Ultra/dp/B0829RYP8V?pf_rd_r=ASVJVSMFM2Q6R0VW4JJ8&pf_rd_p=76f54966-688a-4b94-8474-c7a8ff47e986&pd_rd_r=8b6dd349-94a1-4d86-ac13-216375283b45&pd_rd_w=0hjH4&pd_rd_wg=MAanm&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_hp_d to
    Amazon.com: LG OLED55CXPUA Alexa Built-In CX Series 55" 4K Ultra HD Smart OLED TV (2020): Electronics I think it's pointless to propose infinite things and it would be better to think of, “Would this be useful for everyone or just me?” and then think about whether to fund the addons or propose it to the staff. So many councils are trying to make IP.board become a "facebook clone".
    I hope the IP.Board staff will keep the board as light as possible.

    Thanks for the input. I wouldn't want to run it as a classifieds thing, but as a proper online store for the members where they can upload product photos, deal with pricing and shipping and get their notifications of sales, reports, etc. 
    Hopefully we might see this in future versions of the product.

    @Matt I’m sorry if this isn’t your area but you’re the only staff member I know off the top of my head.  I had to delete the app to stop the notifications from coming one after another!!
    @Fosters Thank you for the link. I’m a little hesitant to buy something that hasn’t been updated in almost two releases though.

    If any third party developers can create a plugin/app that does these, I'd be your first customer!  I still think it should be included in the Commerce app by default, but I don't expect this to be done anytime soon if considered.  We're working on releasing a user-to-user marketplace and the current state of Account Credit is a little too basic and we need more fund security for buyers and sellers.

    Here are a few suggestions for the Account Credit feature in Commerce.
    Limit how many withdrawals someone can make per day/week/month. Set a "pending" period for withdrawing recent commissions.  (ex: If you set a pending period for 3 days, any money/account credit a member has received in the previous 72 hours from withdrawal date cannot be withdrawn.) Only show the currency the member has selected.  Having a long list of 0.00 currencies that a member doesn't use and will probably never receive creates unnecessary clutter.

    I'm glad I read this because I was just about to buy.  The infinite scrolling is something our site has needed for a long time, however, we run an art site and our images can vary from tiny 40x40 pixel artwork to large 3000px+ wallpapers.  If you ever update it to work nicely with all image sizes, I'd be interested.
