Is this being considered? I remember asking if I would basically be able to use the form to submit the record and just hide the database to basically be able to get the following functionality:
You fill out the form, and it posts a topic for you using the information from the filled out form. You said this would essentially be possible with the new feature you added into IP.Content, perhaps you understood the question wrong. I was just under the assumption it would be possible. Besides, just having an empty topic to store comments seems a bit pointless. The actual mirror of the record in the topic content makes more sense. It would also allow me to use the multi-moderation tools since they are not presently available on database records.
Perhaps work with the Community Devs to make the global shoutbox use the IP.Chat framework instead so that we could have private chat right off the box and the community devs dont have to keep working on a pretty much competing product
What I'm about to say is me restraining myself from not only making fun of, but making you feel stupid. There's a clear difference between flashing images with the hope of getting clicked on for them to make money or an image that does not flash and is not linked anywhere. If you still find it annoying, then I suggest you use AdBlocker and block the image from showing. ;).
Now, I have kind of changed my mind about the whole putting affiliate links in pre-sales, but I'm still against flashing images and links in your signature. I'm done here. *expects Wolfie to write an essay in his defense after this post*.
I'm not singling you out. Many other people do it, too. You just happen to have the most attention getting signature around. Even if you didn't have that in your signature, I still would have made this topic. Not everything is about you. ;) Furthermore, even if you chose to believe that it's me who's singling you out, read the above posts. Everyone except the people who do it agree.
I would love it if a staff member posted in here. It's pathetic.. Many people are obviously annoyed by it. It's unprofessional.
Woflie, if you want to help people that ALREADY ARE CONSIDERING buying IP.Board, then do so at your own will, but you shouldn't expect to make money off of it, as everyone else has said. Also, please don't try to quote my post and write an essay defending yourself. I'm not interested in it.
Personally, I have no issue with people giving the link outside of the IPS forums entirely. But come on, I don't even think that putting it in your signature should be allowed (even more so adding flashing images which for a fact, annoying.) I mean, I clicked on your link instead of clicking at the top of the forums, so you should get money? No. I'm already here looking into purchasing IP.Board. Should people get credit because a flashing image caught my attention and I decided to click on it? My $0.02 x2
I'm not sure if it's just myself, but people spamming their affiliate link for IP.Board and other products on these forums has gotten a bit excessive and annoying at the least. Not saying any names, but there are some (at least one) that put their affiliate links everywhere (status, signature, posts, etc). Shouldn't the whole posting of affiliate links on this forum be banned? Isn't the goal to attract completely new customers, not ones that have already made their way to invisionpower.com? I myself don't like clicking on tinyurl links that have hidden affiliate codes and what not.
Maybe it's just me, and maybe other people get annoyed too. Just my two cents.
Alright, well I suggest making the actual topic a mirror of the record. All I want to do is have an actual form where my members fill it out and it is posted as a topic, instead of getting the whole new topic thing. I am making it for graphic requests and having the form would make it much easier on everyone.
