  1. There's lots we can do, but we really want to focus on the things we're really good at, which is enabling discussion. We have no plans to move into a hosting management market as it would require a lot of resources to compete an develop effectively.
  2. Apologies KMK, there was an issue with sending push notifications which caused posts to time out. I've cleaned this up for you.
  3. Hello @Matt  Please excuse the intrusion on your profile wall.  I am testing wall post on 4.6.


    Your profile just happen to be the first staff member who allowed wall post. 🙂

    I am writing this using Mozilla Firefox.

    My community is 'odd' in the fact that most of my users still use Firefox.

    • In a world where
    • Google Chrome seems to rule
    • most of the user base.

    I find it comforting that at least in my order of the world,

    1. Mozilla Firefox
    2. is still
    3. king

    Anyways, thanks for keeping this available. 


    It has been most helpful.

    Please feel free to delete this once you read this. I do not mean to clutter your profile.

    I think I found a bug doing this too.

    The code above should be directly below the quote (not in the quote).

    I will need to see if I can repeat that again, else where. -- But for now, I wanted to see how things worked on someone's profile. 🙂


  4. Here's an example of me manually giving a badge and/or points. Here's the dialog the moderators can use: One other thing we haven't spoken about is that you can allow your moderators to deduct points from a user when they are warned.
  5. Yes, the badges you see here will be included by default in Invision Community 4.6. There are many pages in the ACP. On the front end, viewing a member's profile shows you which badges they've earned. I'm not sure if we are going to do a "here's all the possible badges you can earn". I'm not sure of its value. We don't want to turn the community into a game. It's designed to reward good contributions and not encourage pure engagement for engagements sake to win points and badges. Yes, it does work across all apps. The profile link is also in this screenshot 😄 Not yet, but we already have this down as a future expansion idea. You can rebuild points and ranks at any time including post upgrade. It's what we did here. We had 21 million data points to look at, and it took about 5-6 hours. Reputation and points are still separate. One thing to keep in mind is that we don't want to turn a community into a game. An early rule I put in place was that we were not going to show point logic and show people how to specifically earn points, and which actions earned the most points because that will start to erode the purpose and people may decide, if you said that you earn 5 points for a post and 10 points for a gallery image, to reduce posting and start uploading random pictures just to earn points and rank up. We do not want this. The achievements system is meant to be a reward for great contributions, and not the purpose of the community. To this end, we will not be showing how you can earn points, and the rank thresholds. We do have on our list a way to give you a weekly update about how many points you earned, so you may get an email with "You earned 205 points last week, that's 20 more than the week before" for example to keep you updated on your progress. You can opt in to notifications to get a push notification / inline notification / email when you rank up or earn a new badge. You are seeing the entire system from the perspective of a user. There is a "recognise" system that allows you to manually award points and/or badges for content. Yes you can manually give points and/or badges. Yes, you can add a "location" "and" clause to specify just forums, or whatever app and set up points per thing differently.
  6. It's separate, although we want to tie it into Group Promotion (promote when user reaches N points) Kind of, you can set up a concurrent log in, it's one of the new default rules.
  7. Out of interest, why are you choosing to use a database to store images?
  8. Sorry, posting videos is forbidden in the no-fun zone. We can't be for everyone, and we accept that. We try and keep things light and fun because life can be pretty awful, and given there's a raging pandemic out there (points to window) these online spaces are an escape from that. Appreciate the honest dialog.
  9. "stifled by some dark, manipulative branding and marketing PR department" We call him Jordan, but that's also fine. His reasoning, which I agree with is that we'd prefer positive sentiment. A tiny graphic isn't the only way you can express yourself on our community, though.
  10. Do you use Username/Password log in? If so, I'd recommend switching to email/password as this will be harder to brute force.
  11. As Mr Cake says above, unfortunately there is no undo which means the arduous task of manually splitting.
