  1. Have tidied this topic slightly, lets stay on topic for this. No need to descend to insults. From a personal point of view I do appreciate the idea of an admin selectable choice for the seller (dropdown list maybe) in some circumstances although its obviously not gong to fit all sites, the idea does have merit in itself.
  2. QOTW: What was your first computing memory?

    Ah BlueMax, I remember it reasonably well although I played the Sinclair/Timex version. Left (loading screen) , Right (in-game screen) from said version: I have to be honest I was with some games more interested in the loading schemes and their associated code rather than the game itself. Not for this title though this was quite reasonable all in all.
  3. IPS 4.2 backwards compatibility

    Although your question was not directed at me, you could start your search via the Providers page. What I would then suggest is to look at their submissions here (where appropriate) to determine the type of designs they are producing. I would also recommend taking a look at any support topics for said submissions (usually linked on the file descriptor page) to determine the 'quality' of replies and relative time lapse of questions being answered. Bear in mind this "method" is far from an exact science as things such as people being away on vacation/holiday and time zone 'effects' too. Consideration should also be given when reading replies from the author to those for whom English is not their primary language, by this I mean (in my personal opinion) to not really be overly concerned with any grammatical or spelling issues with any replies if the reply is satisfactory to the original client asking the question. Ultimately, you're looking for a designer not a language tutor. As long as you both can communicate clearly with each other there should be no misunderstandings about what is required. I think from perhaps 30 minutes possibly an hour spent doing this small bit of research would be very worthwhile for yourself as by then you should hopefully be able to at least narrow the list down to a practical number, and from that stage you could then if you wished simply contact them for availability, likely time-scales and costs.
  4. QOTW: What was your first computing memory?

    ZX Spectrum** in 1984, see I'm showing my age now *sigh* **This was sold as a 'Timex' for those 'across the pond', well it was almost the same machine anyway. Later on, a BBC Micro. I still code a little bit to this day for the Spectrum too, being involved in the 'retro' scene as such, and we have released a few new games over the past couple of years although they are based on a core engine of an existing game, extensively modified however in nearly every way. I do not have much of a 'collection' these days although I have somehow managed to hang on to about 60% of the tape based software I purchased 'back then' although I do own a couple of Spectrums and a few BBC Micro's as well as an Amstrad 464 and an Oric Atmos, all were very good machines in their day in their own ways. I did have a slightly similar thing happen to me as happened to Matt regarding 'teacher incorrectly assuming' things, most annoying at the time. this too on the BBC Micro as that was used in about 95% of schools "back then" given its general ruggedness and ease of expansion. A school friend had one , complete with the plus3 and plus 1 'expansions' IIRC. They had the ADFS "L shaped" addon drive for sure. It was a decent machine, my only real caveat about it was the lack of Mode7 really as the other modes ate a bit too much precious ram...
  5. QOTW: What is your favorite TV show?

    For the curious: I do not watch that much TV these days in general, with exceptions being various documentaries. Currently however I'm watching the late 60's sci-fi series 'The Invaders' as and when it is showing on TV and my PVR decides to actually behave and record it. I do have an interest in 60's and 70's sci-Fi series's generally however although I have not seen that many apart from the odd episode here and there.
  6. Admin Account Lock

    This is quite an old topic, the information above may relate to the 3x series or possibly even older. It would be best to ask this afresh in the Support forum I think, where someone will be able to provide said query.
  7. Whats next on the docket?

    No reason other than I do not know personally what is (as my roles are Marketplace only really) but if I did I could not say...
  8. (MDMX) 3D Tags cloud

    I was wondering what the current status of this file is regarding IPS4.2 compatibility given the last update was November 2016.
  9. Status Features and Upgrades

    I have asked the author to clarify the situation regarding this file and its compatibility. For the immediate moment I have temporarily prevented new purchases of the file to avoid disappointment to new clients expecting it to function on IPS4.2, until I hear from the author. Thank you for your patience.
  10. Managing purchases

    Hello, If you are unable to submit a ticket at all (to any department) you could use the form here to explain what you require: https://invisioncommunity.com/contact-us Change the dropdown choice to "Customer Service" from "Sales" Thank you.
  11. Different types of addons will suit different communities. We would need to know a little bit about the general niche/subject(s) of your community really to provide suggestions...
  12. Checked and its fine. Approved. Its nice to see its sensibly error trapped too (I tried to trick it) to prevent future dates/times being set. A good thought.
  13. (DP42) Limit Topic Posts

    (Speaking as a client) Works very well and just as described. An ideal method to encourage registration by allowing guests to view a number of posts in topics without limiting their overall total views.
  14. I'd agree it is worth scanning through permissions after an upgrade however generally speaking its only after a large upgrade (say 3x to 4x or perhaps 4.0/4.1 to 4.2) where this is more important. Generally speaking the upgrader will try to pick a sensible safe setting for an upgrade if the new version does not have the exact same setting.
  15. Ban Members From Forums

    I've removed the "off topic" type posts to keep it relevant to the matter in question, ie: support for this file.
