    Alright, they apparently couldn't reproduce it on their end, which is very strange. I'll go forth and put in a ticket.

    Interesting. I'd love to see how it pans out, so I'll probably test it out with anyone who uses it, as a user first. I appreciate you answering my rather blunt questions. Thank you very much HeadStand. But I'm rather concerned about the fifth point, I meant encoded with IonCube or something like that, and as far as I am aware the stuff on the marketplace isn't... Not usually anyway. Perhaps I should have said "Is the source code of the file we put on our servers, encrypted, or can we view it ourselves?" 
    But cheers... If my site ever gets that popular, I'd definitely consider it, right now though I am not sure I'd be able to afford it. Not saying $30 is a bad price; at all. I assume you get what you pay for, like the app (that we put on the store, if I am getting this correctly) will always be updated as long as we're active clients to suit the iOS or Android version, tech support for it, etc. So I am definitely interested and I think it's a fantastic idea. Perhaps when it's released and I can play around with it as a user (I assume you'll have it set up for ForumMob's forums) I'd definitely like to play with it.
    Then maybe one day I will be able to afford it, or can justify putting it on my site. 
    Thanks again @HeadStand!

    [???] Display Name Issue
    From Thread: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/414899-so-ipb4-deletes-users-accounts-without-warning/
    Spotted By: @Dorian Gray

    User Changes Display Name to: 🐼A Username
    I confirmed it somewhat, user account isn't deleted but it will not show up in the ACP, and the user wouldn't be able to access the site it would be as if they were deleted; it is still in the MySQL Database, however the person's username is now blank. When I put a username for them in the database by doing a manual edit through PHPMyAdmin it fixed it, the test account was restored and could be accessed again, minus a trouble causing panda. 
    @The Heff suggested it might be due to a limitation; however... Mine was set to unlimited and no, it was completely locked out. So I don't think that's it. That said I don't think I was logged out either, I couldn't access anything and yet there wasn't a "Sign in" or "Register" button. It was more like as if I were banned, and instead of seeing and error message where ever I went, I just saw the registration form where ever I went. 
    Enviroment for me: 
    IPS: 4.0.6 (Upgraded from 3.6.7 -> 4.0.4 -> 4.0.5 -> 4.0.5.1 -> 4.0.6)
    PHP Version: 5.5.29 (Updated since I last posted)
    MySQL Version: 10.0.19-MariaDB
    Collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci
    HTTPS on everywhere

    Ryan Ashbrook asked for a support ticket (I assume) however I only tested it on a test board, I assume Dorian is running a live site. So it's more appropriate for him/her to submit the support ticket. However if s/he doesn't, please let me know and I'll happily do it.

    @Ryan Ashbrook: I will get a bug submitted to the tracker. I have submitted a ticket to the bug tracker. As Dorian is offline, I will submit a support request if still required (Although mine was done on a test board, not a live site) where as I assume Dorian is doing it on a live site, thus... Not really appropriate for me to do it.
    @Dorian Gray: I think I'll leave the submitting as a support ticket up to you. It can be fixed with PHPMyAdmin, but you might want to do it through IPS Support like Ryan suggested.

    $30 a month? That's not much less than I pay for my hosting. Before anyone jumps down my throat for being "entitled" or "Demanding it be free" - try again, I'm not, at least I'm not demanding it to be free. I mean it's a great idea but there are some huge concerns for me.
    Privacy questions. 
    Will this work for HTTPS only sites, and honour that HTTPS?Does any data go through any of your servers? What data do you collect and why?If 2 is yes, then is the data that goes to your servers HTTPS too?Can notifications come up on people's phones?How much of a strain will this put on our servers, or there some kind of "Push" notification thing going on, which leads me back to question 2; if not who's servers are they going through or is it done from our server(s)?This "Server Component" that we need to install, what exactly is it for? Is it encoded or can the file be viewed and verified by us?

    I can confirm that this happens for me too; I just tested it. It seems it keeps going to the registration form.
    Used: 🐼A Username
    Edit: User account isn't deleted but it will not show up in the ACP, and the user wouldn't be able to access the site it would be as if they were deleted; it is still in the MySQL Database, however the person's username is now blank. When I put a username for them in the database (field: name) and it fixed it, the test account was restored and could be accessed again. @Dorian Gray @Rhett

    ​This needs the mother of all "Citation Needed" stamps.
    ​Give them time, there's 21 pages of "Pending Bugs" assuming that's 25 a page, that's well over 500 bugs that they're looking into with there being over 5,000 bug reports in the tracker, it's clear evidence that they're getting through them as fast as humanly possible.
    One bug can take a while to fix 500, will take some time. They fix huge swaths of bugs on each update, and quite a number of people have said it's probably best to wait for 4.1 or something. I've waited what seems like forever for some of my tickets to be answered, if it's on the tracker or if it's in the support tickets they'll get to it when they can. Please take some free advice; get up, go outside, enjoy some fresh air, calm down and come back when you're calm. Sorry if that sounds "too harsh" but you seriously need to chill out. 
    It seems to me that there's updates being released every week or so, as others have said; give it time. See if theres anything you can do to fix it yourself, that way you can learn about IPS4, PHP and coding - its what I do, whilst I'm waiting. But then again I didn't jump straight into updating my forums without a backup.

    [4.0.6 & This Site] Album Images in Profile Visual Bug
    I noticed a bug on my site with large images in albums in someone's profile which I was able to reproduce here: 
    http://community.invisionpower.com/profile/145929-tripp_uk/?tab=node_gallery_gallery

    When you resize the screen or turn the tablet to portrait mode it looks fine, but in full (desktop) mode it looks broken. My best guess is that it is supposed to load a uniform square thumbnail or something, which clearly isn't working. Or it's supposed to do what the Gallery does; which again clearly isn't working.

  14. Tripp_UK added a post in a topic: Limit number of topics new members can open.   

    ​Well then I'm sure that's up to the IPS staff. Another thing I didn't think of during my reply is instead of blocking, why not Moderation Controlled after making X posts within Y minutes? That way the user (if legitimate) can see their post went through and just needs to be approved by staff once confirmed that it's not spam. I'm just thinking about sales here now, if you tried posting some things and then you make a thread that has a lot of questions about the product for the pre-sales forum and you find yourself blocked from making that post for another Y minutes, would you be too happy about that? Do you think that the average - can't wait five minutes person will hang around that long? 
    I (personally) don't think so. Then again I've grown quite cynical of people in general lately.
    Thank you for your explanation though! It definitely ironed out my worries, Mr. Dumbledore.
  15. Tripp_UK added a post in a topic: Limit number of topics new members can open.   

    ​Until it starts blocking legitimate people as it would on my site - for example. Again an obstacle rather than a full on block would be much better at this for this incident. Of course that's assuming there was absolutely nothing wrong with the Spam Monitor/Filtering system that's already there in the first place. For all we know it could have been bugged which could have been fixed or is in the process of being fixed by IPS staff. As I said previously; this kind of reaction for something that happens so rarely on these forums* is heavy handed and unnecessary. 
    Now if what you're proposing is some kind of "Condition Level" where 1 = No protection, 2 = Force CAPTCHA for 3 topics within X minutes, 3 = Force CAPTCHA for 3 topics/posts within X Minutes, 4 = Block Topic Creation within X minutes and 5 = Block Topic/Post Creation within X minutes, I can understand that. What I'm saying is blocking actual content creation (which would affect legitimate users too) for this specific incident is grossly heavy handed. Although I somewhat understand the point your making, and can see where you're coming from but this is an over-reaction*...
    I don't suppose that makes any sense at all, does it? I'm not really sure if this something you want done just for this site or the entire IPSuite, I know for a fact that I wouldn't endorse or use such a feature as the amount of spam we get is pretty much zero; just like these forums. If this is something people want in their IPSuites could it not be a hook/modification or at the very least optional?
