  1. Michael R added a post in a topic: Prepping my website for IPS4. Who do I give my money to?   

    Right behind ya! 
  2. Michael R added a comment on a blog entry: Get Ready For IPS 4.0!   

    When can we get a peek? I can't wait to see 4.0! It's like waiting for Santa Claus to arrive! :D
  3. Michael R added a post in a topic: Inbox Quota   

    Is there some way to notify members as to when their mail box is approaching the "full" quota (say at 85% or 90% capacity), so that they can delete some of their messages?  
  4. Michael R added a post in a topic: Send member into "Time Out"   

    Again, I got the idea from a friend of mine who manages a vB site. Basically I have one or two users who always push the envelope on the site. Technically they don't break any rules, they are just instigators and are constantly stirring crap up. I can't really ban them for no reason. It would be easier just to have everyone ignore them. That way they think they are posting but everyone is ignoring them and they go away on their own.

    Thanks! It's basically HTML/CSS. I use Mailchimp to send out and manage the list. I insert the articles manually, but it is basically copy paste into my template. I pick the featured articles for each month and simply link back to the individual post on my site.

    I send out a monthly newsletter. I actually have more subscribers to my newsletter than I have IPB members. Each month the newsletter includes unique content not found on my IPS site as well as excerpts to news articles, featured posts, and blog entries. The excerpts all link back to the source post on my site. Here is last month's newsletter: http://www.clausnet.com/newsletter/05-2014.html   I also include an archive to all past newsletters: http://www.clausnet.com/newsletter

    Exactly!

    There is a vB mod that does this. My friend who runs a vB site suggested the idea. He basically puts trolls on it who don't quite break the rules but are continually pushing the envelope. Kind of like Miserable User but not as obvious. The user just thinks everyone is ignoring him/her. :)

    Nothing?

    Is there a mod that will put a member in "time out"? In other words, he can post but no one sees it but him/her?

    Any chance some of this could be controlled by group? As I mentioned above, I use a similar feature now.

    On my site, members who donate get a few extras; extra image space, inbox space and the ability to have a profile header.
     
    Maybe the About Me character length or something. Just a thought.

    Love it! Thank you!
     
    I love the header image. I currently have a similar feature built into my skin for VIP/supporter members. Any chance that can be a group driven feature? :)
  14. Michael R added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Embeddable content   

    GREAT! Now I just have to teach my users how to copy and paste a link! HA!
  15. Michael R added a post in a topic: Posting URLs no longer works?   

    I've made no changes to the system but am noticing that posting URLs with or with out the BBcode will add the link. When I go back and edit the post I see this:
     

    http://www.somewebsitehere.com  
    Even when I edit directly it reverts back.
     
    Links posted previously work fine.
