    Me too - it's going to be fun watching this develop

    I like where it's at now under your user name with everything else.
  3. jackflash added a post in a topic: What happened to the good old days?   

    Facebook has really built a great mousetrap and their ability to create a group so easily changed the dynamics of the game -
    From what I've been reading, IPB 4.0 is a great framework, however, it's also where IPB should have been over a year ago, so this might be more of a catch up to the competition type of release.  4.0 seems to be coming along nicely, so thanks to the IPS develop team as I look forward to it.
    While IPB is my favorite, what's interesting is how major forum publication houses don't use it like they do the competition.  With VB reportedly in chaos (and I don't know if that's factually correct), a few big players moved to Xenforo.
    Personally, I find that IPB is on this desire to run such a clean looking site that it mutes the ability for forum users to engage and participate more.  Maybe 4.0 will change this and I think that right now  @Kevin Carwile  understands this the most and he's developing some interesting stuff.

    Having a DMCA notice on your site is a good start, however, it doesn't offer total legal protection unless you also have a registered agent on file with the U.S. Gov't.  If a party wishes to file a complaint against you and you do not have a registered agent listed, you DMCA statement might not be effective.
    Generally, if someone has a complaint, they will contact you through a contact link on your site or look your domain contact information up.  However, legally, you need to have an agent (it can be you) on file to claim safe harbor.

    Neat Idea

    ​Which is why I think this ought to be a paid app.  Some of these more complex ones deserve such and authors need to be paid.

    Who wouldn't pay a minimum $5.00 for this?
  8. jackflash added a post in a topic: IP.Gallery Suggestion: Add Images to Album   

    That's an odd one - being able to upload images without specifying where they would go?
  9. jackflash added a post in a topic: Followers notification X real followed 'content' notification   

    ​Here's what concerns me about these e-mail notifications - if people with yahoo, gmail, aol, outlook, etc. accounts cannot stop these e-mails and they become burdensome,  they may be prone to simply marking them as spam.  Should that happen and your host turns off your ability to send out e-mails and new user  validations, then your community is dead.

    ​I've been to several of the Barrett Jackson events and what's surprising are some of the values attached to the 1978 TransAms - I've seen them hit the mid $70K mark! Yes, 70K.  I ran out of storage space so the Impala SS had to go (do you know how long those 1966s are!?).
    I have an order in for a Shelby GT350R while my wife shakes her head - I got her an English Bulldog from a pound to ease it over.

    ​The ZL1 is on my list - I am still looking for a 1967 Camaro SS/RS for next to nothing cost wise.  I know, probably aintgonnahappen.com
    I'm also looking for another 1966 Impala SS - should have never sold mine.  Way different than a Camaro.

    Nice! I ​Love the Pontiac brand - my last one was a 1979 TransAm, which I sold a few years back. At least we still have Buick  
    I've been thinking about getting a ZL1, but I don't have any more space (yet).

    ​The author of this app seems dedicated, answers questions, etc.  I don't doubt that.  Unforeseen circumstances can arise though.
    I am going to purchase it myself, though this will be such a large part of the community, it does make me skiddish.

    ​This has long been my fear with such a major social component too.
