  1. Hey, I would like to access the new version I’m existing customer.
  2. This function does not seem to work correctly, moderators can still delete verifications.
  3. What I’m saying is there is nothing wrong with the group permissions and I was actually agreeing with what you said about guests not being allowed to view groups. Just because “you” don’t use Facebook or don’t see the use in it or social media doesn’t mean the rest of the world isn’t addicted to it. I start changing things and my real life Facebook community and peers won’t know what’s going on. I think Invision got the group permissions perfect and that’s coming from someone who runs closed and secret Facebook groups the biggest in my country.
  4. Great news looks really nice however I’m only interested in a white label IPB app I’m sticking with tapatalk for time being..
  5. It’s a cool idea but if your forming a closed or private club the members are not gonna feel like it’s private if anyone can come along and have a peak. It’s not how groups on Facebook work and the permissions are the same as what everyone is used to I don’t see much reason to change them or add more layers. I agree guests should not be able to see groups unless they are public, there should be a better solution for this than changing the module permissions. The best club enhancement is the advanced topic feed imo.. It turns the club forums into feeds and it can also pull from clubs so you don’t need your club category in the main forum section.
    Best $15 I’ve spent on the marketplace another brilliant application from @onlyME. I use this for two forums that members share pictures to and I also use it as forum icons for all the forums because why not use new content as an icon. This has definitely brought a new feel to the forum section. I don’t allow members to upload a thumb it’s only if they post content it will be used as thumb. Thanks again for another game changing application.
  6. Do you know how to reshuffle these tabs? I currently have discover set as my default tab.
  7. seems to take a while to propagate will it change itself or will I need to keep scraping it? I got it working on one post eventually then tried it on another post and it's just showing the sharer image.
  8. I think we have been copying social media in a way with user profiles and status updates. We are just limited to how we post and that’s why status updates are not used as much. When we improve that things like status and story posts will make more sense I suppose.
  9. My forum is timeline driven. Your idea of discussion is different from my idea. Your being stereotypical of posters. Facebook and social media has been changing how people like to post. This generation has different posting expectations than the generation 15 years ago.
  10. I didn’t say write I said read not everyone will feel the need to write a paragraph in response to a quick status. Your logic is backwards and only applies to a certain type of discussion. It is no secrete social media has been killing forums. Features like groups make communities look small in comparison. Stories is a popular feature that would help us take it back to the glory days.
  11. To clarify further by stories I mean pictures with writing on them. Not necessarily videos, picture status updates. Everyone has different purposes for their community ours is to connect with friends. Everything is discussion based even Facebook groups. That sense of community does not come without discussion. Story posts would boost activity for us because I know members will be clicking on a new story post to read it rather than saying “I’ll log in tomorrow and read it” because it won’t be there tomorrow. It encourages frequent usage and there is a demand for it in this day and age. Forums are great at being forums and social media is great at killing forums. Mybe I am light years ahead we still have not got push notifications but you can’t blame me for putting the idea out there.
  12. It’s just like I said users will post more freely and recklessly. Something we don’t see on forums too much. It also can be used for other means of relaying messages you only want to show for a day. Like “heading out tonight if anyone wants to join me” or “any plumbers in the group just had a pipe bust” or “lovely day outside” stories are things you can expect to read relating to the current time or someone’s current situation or even advertising. Their is tons of examples why users love it, I run a real life club and story posts have become more useful than Facebook groups. It may not make sense if your used to forums and making posts with a title ect but in the world of social media it makes alot of sense. Aload of crap to you mybe, not to the rest of the world as statistics show. Idiotic? Please don’t be ignorant we are clearly way behind. I don’t know about you but my member base does not spend their days in front of a computer screen or enjoy writing paragraphs for each post or adding a title. Or even uses forums. My goal is to create a platform that offers ease of use and can compete with social media. I did the forum thing over ten years ago when invision was back in beta. Times has changed. Cool you disagree and do you have any examples of this feature being utilised on a large scale? It’s a wasted feature when you look at it in comparison to Facebook, one or two groups on a community makes the community look small. A whole feature just for one or two groups, sounds like a waste of space to me. We do have hopes of using this feature as we have lots of groups on board and inspire the creation of groups but whether they find it useful remains to be seen. We need to evovle the way we post, if we want to make things like story post possible then there needs to be big upgrades to the what you see is what you get editor. Change is a good thing.
  13. We have seen it on instagram, facebook and youtube. We need this implemented as a feature for invision. This is becoming a vital part of social media with both facebook and youtube adopting it. With stories users blog their daily life without worrying about everyone seeing it or people looking at it more than once ect...It encourages users to check the site for live updates that they may miss if they decide to wait a week before logging back in. Users want to be able to make posts that only stay up for a day and self destruct, or that only select friends can see, when you give them this they will post more freely. It will also make your site look more complete by todays standards. I doubt many invision communities will develop a decent Club section most could be considered clubs themselves, its a really cool feature but more emphasis needs to be put on user interaction and post engagement, maybe a friend system. I run a few facebook groups and I know how notoriously hard it can be on facebook I can't imagine clubs working for too many communities infact most are bare with one or two clubs, its a wasted feature. We need user interaction, better status updates, we need to change the way we post, there is things we could be improving on that would help us even the playing field. +1 for Invision Stories
  14. Is this integrated with private messages, or is that wishful thinking?
