    Redmak got a reaction from Afrodude in Anonymize flagged as spammer display names   
    Whenever I flag a spammer certain actions are carried out to ban the account and IP and also soft delete their posts, but one thing that I think should be taken into consideration is freeing up display name choices of spammers. In many cases the names are now thought out well to try and bypass the antispam checks, meaning it is forever lost to genuine members registering later.
    Simply: On flag as spammer, also randomize the member name to guest[number] similar to what the GDPR task does.
    I currently am using 4.6.5.1.

    Cue people asking why your rebuild is going so quickly 😄
    Likely, and easy, answer - neowin.net is running on a proper beefy server setup.
    Will be interesting to see how long this one takes to complete, so pop a message in when done,

    Redmak got a reaction from SeNioR- in Google reCAPTCHA v3 on IPS. When?   
    I read around the web last week that Google is going to start charging for reCaptcha which would make hCaptcha even more desirable if it was incorporated into the forum software as a supported feature.
    Although the criteria for charging is high (million requests a day, or 1000 a second) it only takes some bad actor to target a site and run up those requests, and that article is from 2020 so that criteria may have already changed, knowing Google.

    Invision offers a subscription-based spam filter, it would be convenient to have this additional feature without having to go through an external developer.

    Redmak reacted to Cyboman in Reaction Sets   
    I was already promoting this idea in several threads in this community, but maybe it requires to go a bit more into detail, to feel the power and mightiness of dynamic reactions sets...
    What I would suggest - in concerns of gamification use cases - a more dynamic approach of reactions
    please let us have different reaction sets in every application and in every thinkable way depending on application AND member group permissions, f.e. two sets of reactions for forums, another set for blogs, individual ones for clubs and so on in forums f.e. I would like to see two or three different sets (I mean (1) for the typical emotions (displayed with the heart icon in IPS 4.2, like, thanks...), (2) a custom one for skill level classfication of the member (maybe with a star icon) and (3) and advanced set for moderators or anything else (vote for i-award, vote for article promotion...). So allowed users (or groups) can react 2 or 3 times on each post. F.e. it should be configurable that new users only see and use (1), advanced users can react with (1) + (2), others are only allowed for (1) + (3). You get the idea? If member groups can't use a reaction set, it should be greyed out or hidden. as enhancement to the application/group permissions for the set, I would suggest to also allow to apply group permissions for each individual reaction inside a reaction set special reaction sets should also be possible for status updates or member profile pages. Especially in member profile pages you don't rate posts, our users could rate the member status directly Why?
    each reaction is an engagement trigger more advanced reaction sets could be a premium membership feature each reaction set could be used for more than just emotions, reaction sets that can't be combined really exist! There are totally different use cases. Mixing everything up is not a clean reaction way for the user. I don't want to overload a single reaction set with maybe 21 reactions (3 x 7), nobody would understand this. Or if you only have 1 reaction, you don't know what would be most useful with some future modifications we could do mathematics with the results and derive more complex feedback or statistics from them and display them on special statistics pages (like in fitness tracker apps, that tell you details about your fitness in different categories). With this data basis, we could recommend the next steps, what members should do to achieve more community fame / more development milestones / more... Maybe there is a modder out there interested in developing such precious enhancements, but I think it should go directly into the core features. There would still be enough jobs for our developers to create rules sets how to evaluate reaction sets and display numbers and informations on special statistics or recommendation pages.
    With such an approach towards reactions, we could definitely strike Facebook & co.
    Thanks.

    Redmak got a reaction from Collin1000 in UPDATE - Isn't IP.Board built for large forums?   
    For the record, I'm not convinced that our issue is to do with IPB3.
