  1. Selections should persist across pages. I’ll look into that.

  3. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback, the team have seen it and love it, thanks!
  4. ACP > Members > Groups > (Edit a group) > Social Tab There's an option to limit how many reps they can give in a day. This will prevent a massive retaliation. However, you should always lead with kindness. I personally do not think you should allow members to attack each other by downvoting content. It creates a negative environment for many users which can turn toxic very fast. I'd rather reward good content, and ignore poor content.
  5. It's nice to read nice things, but I'm pretty sure there are conversations that are the exact reverse of this here and there. Choice in a marketplace is a great thing. It pushes all to do better.
  6. Excellent points raised here. We'll do better at warning of the bigger changes during development and in the release notes.
  7. We removed post numbers about 5 years ago and although we get the odd request here and there, it’s not something that is raised very often.
  8. Not a thing. However, we have to be mindful of adding settings for minor things like this as each setting accrues technical debt.
  9. I don't think that number of views is a particularly useful metric and doesn't reflect how beneficial the topic may be. Also, which guest page caching, the topic view isn't entirely accurate and will only accurately count member (logged in) views.
  10. One of the most commonly asked questions we get is how to ensure your new community launch is successful. You may think that if you have the right features with the correct configuration, success is guaranteed, but it requires more than that. Way back in the early 2000s when the internet was in its infancy, there was an explosion of new communities. If you had some webspace, a little technical knowledge and a forum script you were almost guaranteed to attract people into your community. These days it takes a little more work to get your new community off the ground. There’s a lo
  11. I’m really saddened to hear this. I’d like to put something together to honour his memory. Sadly, I didn’t get to know him outside of our ticket and topic conversations. If you’d like to share a thought or memory in this topic, I’ll include them.
  12. It's something that we can do in a near future release, but it's not a priority at this time. Once we get 4.5 out and stable, we can look at layering more onto existing features.
  13. Send in a support ticket and we'll take a look.
  14. Facebook do make it tricky by constantly changing permissions required and adding new requirements. We'll do our best to keep it up to date, but we are always exploring simpler ways via third parties to publish content to social media channels.
  15. Has this been a consistent increase, or has it spiked and settled down?
  16. Don't worry, Invision Community is in very capable hands. While I co-founded the company 20 years ago, we've come a long way since then. Along the way, we've hired some extremely smart developers who do the bulk of coding now. I still work on features and help direct the product, but I spend less time in a code editor these days, and that's a great thing. I enjoy writing, and if one person gets a little value or inspiration from a blog article, then it's been worthwhile. Really soon. A soft release helps us narrow down critical issues before we roll it out to all customers.
  17. Yep! This is a soft launch to a smaller number of customers so we can iron out any issues we find (and we have found some 🤣)
  18. Hi Mike, I'm sorry you feel that way. We have been in business for close to twenty years and a lot has changed over that time. We've constantly evolved as a company, and constantly evolved our products to ensure that we remain relevant and competitive. This has meant changing our minds on a few things over these decades, and customers with long memories do tend to pick us up for each change; as is your right. Everything we do is to provide you the customer with the best product and support. We're not perfect, and we do make mistakes but we come from a place of wanting to do good. When we
  19. Looks to be something similar to this edit in forums/front/topics/post
  20. Moats have been used for centuries as a way to defend a building from potential attack. A flooded ditch around a castle is a great way to make it harder to be taken. You can't push battering rams against walls, and neither can you dig under the castle. Quite frankly, a moat is a pretty decent deterrent when there are plenty of other castles to pillage. What does this mean for your business? A community can be an economic moat, or in more simple terms, your competitive advantage. When your product or service is surrounded by an engaged community that feels invested in your b
  21. It's just meaningless clutter. The question comes up now and again, but it really doesn't get a lot of traction from fellow Invision Community owners. You can share the post permalink via the three dot menu, or by the post time link. We're keen to keep visual noise to a minimum and let the post content be the focus.
  22. What would you do when posts are deleted? Renumber the posts so that "check out post 4 with the answer" no longer points to the actual answer (it's now post 3) - or leave gaps in the numbering so it's obvious when content has been merged, deleted or moved?
