    Sure, but how do you connect these forums? As the only difference between these forums is the language, surely they should be connected.
    The same goes for articles in the CMS. If you write an article in English, but you also have a French section, then it should be possible for members to translate the article and post it as a translation. This means that readers will have to be able to find the French translation when looking at the English article. Its a basic CMS function.

    Uhm.... you forgot the localization and translation of content.
    How about having the same content (articles for example) in multiple languages?
    How about having a forum subject covered by a forum for each language?
  3. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: Use a third party library/framework, or build it in-house?   

    But with a popular framework vulnerabilities are found quicker.
    I much doubt that popular & robust frameworks like Zend would dissappear, so thats an unlikely scenario.
    Using such third party framework would also be a boost to the addon community.
     
    Anyway, I hope that you will produce somethign even better than Zend and CI.

    Please add hashtag functionality to this addon. Hashtags are basically the same as tags, with the difference that hashtags are in posts. Both hashtags as tags link to threads tagged with the same tag.
     
    Please also add the function to follow a tag.

    Very nice! Please consider to create a matching 'Topic preview on hover' hook.
  6. Alfa1 added a comment on a file: [HQ] Forum Icons   

    Please add functionality to use forum icons as status images. i.e. show different icons if the forum has new content, is locked, no new content, etc.

    Too bad that I have missed this. The coupon ran out on the 1st of this month.
  8. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: Anti-spam Enhancements   

    Please add Bad Behavior, StopForumSpam and registration time detection (ISBOT). That would put a major dent in spam in IPS.
     
    Personally I do not believe in annoying new members with captha's. Capthas will only get broken again.
  9. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: "Best Answer" Feature   

    I really like this addition. But this does not allow you to turn a forum into an Question & Answers function. To do that we would need a 'Search answers' function and a 'does this answer your question?' function which will show similar questions to people posting a new question.

    None the less, this is very cool.
  10. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3 Dev Update: SEO Improvements   

    Another amazing blog. I hope that this is just the start. While these improvements are major, there still is a lot more to do.

    Is this really a mobile skin, not an app? Its beautiful!
  12. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Nexus 1.3.0: Global Changes   

    It seems to me that payment methods are USA centered. I may be wrong. In Europe only 25% has a credit card and online banking is the way to go. Moneybookers, Ogone,...
    2CO has a pretty restrictive list of banned products, including membership clubs. Doesn't that restrict from selling subscriptions?
  13. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.2.0 Dev Update: UserCP and Misc. Interface Updates   

    I love the frequent updates. I hope you will keep ramping up development like you do.
  14. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.2.0: Calendar   

    Looking good!
  15. Alfa1 added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.2.0: Notifications, Part 2   

    Absolutely fantastic indeed.

    Are you also going to add a column for IM notifications, like facebook does now?

    Drooling over Ip.Nexus. Wish IPS would close the functionality gaps between vb and IPB, so i could move over.

      Innovative stuff here so far. Hoping the mod community catches up. Hope 3.1 Gold is done soon so I can go live.

    Thanks for the link. No questions ATM. I like where IPB is going. In many ways IPB is way ahead of vb. However IPB misses various functionality that my board is dependent upon. Both default vb functions as custom things I have added to my site.
    Im the admin of a high traffic vb board thats highly customized. If IPB keeps rolling out new features, addons and keeps adding whatever vb has an...

    Any questions about changing to IPB?

    Same here. There are so many up and downsides to IPB to evaluate. Though I must say: Im impressed. Too bad that there is very little modification community going on and no Social Groups.
    Most of the other things are great.

  9. Bluedreams » Alfa1

    No we're still debating it!

  10. Alfa1 » Bluedreams

    Greetings back. Im checking out the up and downsides of IPB.
    Have you switched over?

  11. Bluedreams » Alfa1

    greetings from vb land! I actually use a few of your mods for vb :D
