    Nice! Too late to add "specify topic visible/hidden times" feature? :whistle:

    I know. Just throwing the topic out there for discussion.

    Thoughts?

    Sweet, I like. Someone should make an IPB skin based on it.

    Edit: Barring any objection from IPS, of course.

    Agree with all of your suggestions, Luke. Usability is key.

    And you did so in a very sleek manner :). Now all you need to do is fix those gamma channel problems :P.

    Nice work! I think it looks great.

    I think it's more an issue of preventing someone from reporting the same post over and over again.

    Just what I was going to suggest :).

    My suggestions for the notification system:

    First of all, 3.1 is looking pretty good :).

    The notification system is exciting, and I know that this is the first beta release, but I think it could be improved. Currently, the system seems to work like that for personal messages. You are taken to a list of notifications, and clicking on one opens a new page with more details. Personally, I think something more lightweight and less complex would be even better. Something similar to the way Facebook displays notifications would be nice. For example, instead of seeing a list of:

    New reply to your status Today, 02:12 PM
    New reply to your status Today, 11:07 AM
    New reply to your status Today, 10:58 AM

    And then having to click on each one to see the pertinent details on a new page for each, just list the details of the notifications:

    You could have an AJAX button/check mark/etc. next to each notification that allows a user to mark each one as read/unread. I think that, in general, this way is simpler and gives more information at one glance without having to click into additional pages.

    There also needs to be a more visible way of knowing that you have new notifications. For example, like the number that shows up over the profile picture in the user navigation when you have a new private conversation.

    To answer most of your questions..

    1) No, not out of the box.

    2) You could easily skin that in if you want

    3) I'm not sure about that one. Maybe someone else can chime in on that.

    4) Yes. You can restrict access by password, user group, permission mask, etc.

    5) IP.Board integrates reCaptcha out of the box, allows for human verification questions on the registration form, and also integrates with IPS's Spam Monitoring Service (included for free with an active license).

    Links is still available here on IPS; just removed from nav bar so must point browser to it directly

    1. PKIDelirium

      There's a link to it on the marketplace's sidebar.

    What happened to the Links app?
