I have numerous questions about purchasing ip.nexus with responses to my inquiries leading to followup questions. There are situations that relate to sales where there should be direct contact with a sales rep. My email was dropped hrs ago and its frustrating to not get an immediate response.
BTW calling someone clueless is the same as ignorant which simply means lacking knowledge. That is not an insult just part of the English language. Either way I don't need to be part of anybodies quest for 10k posts.
You really are clueless. What is the relevance that it is a software product to get phone service ? To show you how clueless you are tell me if you see a phone number here http://www.vbulletin.com/en/contacts/ Feel free to stay off my topics.
I have phone support at Amazon and have never paid a penny more for any purchase. I can talk to hostgator about anything and it doesn't cost one penny extra. Are you totally clueless ? Customers needs should always come first.
I understand that it may save money from a companies standpoint by not having someone manning the telephones but does this really service the client ? I had a couple quick questions today for IPS and I would have loved to just asked someone on the phone the answers to these questions. The whole reason I stay with my current host is because they have excellent phone support. I can pickup the phone and talk to a tech about my problem. Why have so many companies decided to not put the client first ? IPS please consider putting the client first and letting them decide the form of correspondence with you that they prefer.
I am shocked that PP shut you down. I thought that they adopted a look the other way policy because just about everyone is getting into their space (Amazon,Google,Square,etc). There are so many companies getting into payment that I thought they would be looking the other way to just about everything. They must have cited some violation so come clean with us.... What TOS did they claim you violated ?
In regards to your donations I have news for you and that is you are a business. Just because they are defined as donations that does not exempt you from reporting those dollars as income. Perhaps your expenses offset that income but it still needs to be reported. Why not just provide the documents requested by skrill ? File a schedule C as a sole prop. Its not that big a deal. I file a schedule C for my donations.
Finally, I just want to say that the Donation Tracker is a great App. In addition, Mike John provides the "best support" for his product. He is "Aces".
I have reviewed this thread with great intrigue. Is anyone using this app to help monetize their site ? For example, would it work if members bought credits with the value being $1 equals 1 credit. Purchasing members could give/award credits to those members who provided outstanding content (topics/posts). I would allow members with 100 or more credits to send me a pm at two different periods per yr requesting to be sent 90% in cash of their earned credits. 10% would be what the site would earn while contributing members would receive 90% of their credits which would represent the monetization of their posting efforts. Set aside for a moment the 1099 issues does anyone use this app for that type of setup ?
I too want to say that I really like your board. As a matter of fact, I will go on record as saying it is "excellent" or should I say "doskonały". I also want to admit that I failed every Polish language test I ever took in school. So, is "Sport trading news" the same in English and Polish ?.. I choose the wrong major..lol...Good luck and keep up the great work on your site.
I would change your header names to be in the same language that your viewers use. Why use English words at all ? For example, I have two invision boards in two different languages (Spanish and English). For my Spanish board it reads Foros not Forums, Shoutbox is ChatCaja, Members are Miembros etc...Change your headers to be consistent with the language of your audience. I would do the same thing to the couple of forums that you have in English.
Gosh, if we are allowed to dream of something for password protection, how about some biometrics to really give IPS the "WOW" factor ! For boards that have subscriptions this would eliminate the sharing of passwords to bypass paying for access.
You might want to take a look at this thread: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/323354-show-off-your-content/?p=2031044 The best ip.content sites are done by top of the food chain type of guys. You are citing one of the best sites and asking if something similar to that site could be duplicated by a newbie for which I would answer "unlikely". Give it some time and you will get there.
Just go to the News and Information forum.. http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/359062-ipboard-330-and-ipcontent-230-released/?p=2243316
Shared Servers and claims of "unlimited" this or that are just marketing tools designed to hook you in as a client. After you are on a shared server the hosting problems become apparent as hosting issues will occur with over committed servers. Shared hosts can be like a $9 gym membership. You might get a lot of promises and a cheap membership but they will sell 20,000 memberships for a gym that holds 50 people. If you want better processing times you probably have no other alternative but to move up to one of their VPS options.
