  1. 7SiN added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Nexus integration with the bulk mailer   

    It would be great to send out an email to those who haven't purchased in the last x months, who have been active in the last x months so you can send these active users coupons to purchase packages.  That way you aren't emailing people who purchased 2 years ago and haven't been back since then (if you didn't want to - since some people just move on).
  2. 7SiN added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3 Dev Update: Warning System   

    Cool, something I suggested nearly 2 years ago is finally being implemented. Nice to see a change to an inefficiency within the system. Congrats.
  3. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Your auto meta tags need some work   

    That's untrue because Adwords users can see the keyword performance if I read the articles right a few weeks ago. I've been under a rock for 2 weeks so if things have changed since then...then I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what I read.

    Plus, how does blocking that information in GA tell you what the high performing keywords are or give you any sort of info for things like that? If you are trying to game the system, you are still going to game it even if you don't know the performance of the keywords. People know the high paying ones so they are going to do all the backlinking and what not that will bring people to their site and rank their site higher for those keywords.
  4. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Your auto meta tags need some work   

    I see this move as the first move by Google and think they are going to start doing more things like this. I mean, I believe they claimed that it's for privacy reasons. I call BS! Privacy for keywords? Really...what can webmasters gather from seeing keywords being used to get to their site...against people? We can't link people to these keywords. These keywords help us to know we are on the right track. I predict in the future Google will be offering a paid service for those who want to know what keywords people use to get to their site...that's my guess as of right now as I see that as the only reason for making this stupid move.
  5. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Google Checkout - Alert Pay - and more   

    Paypal is scum and scammers. They allow the scammers of the world to use their services, pay other people and then request a refund. I've found 95/100 times I've dealt with people trying to scam me and my site, the scammer wins no matter what proof I bring to the table. I have conclusive evidence and paypal removes that money from my account. I despise that company.

    Which mod is that?
  7. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Google "Page Speed" Results for IPB   

    Maybe it's my ignorance but I thought xF only used sprites for their smilies...
  8. 7SiN added a post in a topic: ipb v2.3.5 vers v3.2.3   

    Might want to look at the people who went from 2.x to 3.2 on the site. I know I've read one or two threads about people saying the performance of the site tanked when they upgraded. Just a lil heads up and warning since no one else will likely let you know.
  9. 7SiN added a post in a topic: #hashtags IPB   

    Or for defined pages. #Rules. #contactus. #Settings.
  10. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Nexus integration with CafePress, Spread Shirt, etc   

    This would be great. Right now we are going to have to custom code something or use a different portal just to get something like that on our site.
  11. 7SiN added a post in a topic: #hashtags IPB   

    Although it may be the "in thing" but I see no benefit. Unless I'm just not thinking of how it can be utilized...which no one has yet stated a good use for it.
  12. 7SiN added a post in a topic: #hashtags IPB   

    Again, this goes back to how it will function and how it can benefit a community. If it's only one community that can benefit from this, then leave it out and create a mod for it. If it's multiple, then it should be considered but I'm lost trying to find a valid reason to do this.
  13. 7SiN added a post in a topic: #hashtags IPB   

    Wow, it's bad enough the kids on my site do this but to make it a function in IPB....umm...idk. It may work but I see no point in it. Why would people use it? You mention linking, which I'm assuming would bring you to a "search-like" page with all the threads that have these hashtags as tags on them. I see no real value in this and I honestly don't see how it would benefit the community.
  14. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Your auto meta tags need some work   

    Wrong. Bing, which has been increasing it's market by 30% in the last quarter HEAVILY uses them. Google still uses them but doesn't use them as a key factor like it did about 10-15 years ago. Yes there is a limit to each of them, but starting it out with the title of the thread, since that SHOULD be your main key words (and not just the individual words) only makes sense to have it auto add to your meta tags. As I stated above, most forum sites will not be ranking for individual keywords which is how IPS has it set up. We are all ranking in SERPs with minimal of 2 keywords up to 6 keywords most likely. It does not make any sense what-so-freakin-ever to keep doing the meta keywords they way they are doing it.

    I know in vB utilizing vBSEO I was able to set my description as something like the following:
    Your auto meta tags need some work posted in IP.Board is about I believe this is one part of the reasons why IPB forums rank so bad...

    Now, it may not make the most sense and I don't believe that was my exact set up but it's something similar. It doesn't have to make sense. It has to have enough keywords in there to show relevance to searches. When people see search results, they want to see a lot of bolded words in their description without typically reading it. The way they have it set up now will now bold very many words bc most members blab on about themselves or something stupid in the first few sentences. At least the way I just posted above will repeat the title which is going to be what shows up in the results, then you want the description to be relevant and bolded so repeating the title works, and to top it off, saying what section it is in probably will help even further bc the posts are related to that and the searcher may be looking for something for that section name.

    E.g. Person search "High jump glitch Halo 2"
    On my site, someone posts "High jump glitch" in my Halo 2 section. For one, title tags are not optimized in IPB either so I'll make a lil exert about it here. Title tag should look like:
    High jump glitch - Halo 2. Then the description will be like "High jump glitch posted in our Halo 2 section is about I just figured out how to do the high jump glitch on...", then the keywords should look like "high jump glitch, high, jump, glitch" (and now that I think about it, it should include the name of the section as well, which is what I had with vBSEO, so it should look more like "high jump glitch halo 2, high jump glitch, high, jump, glitch".

    This can cause a MUCH HIGHER relevance in search results, more bolded words, which when you read about search result psychology, that's mainly what people look for. In fact, the actually subconsciously look for an arrow design but we can't quite do that with the tools we have. And since you bring up the "limit" on how many you can have, well more times than not, these automated keywords don't even reach the 250 character limit for keywords. Plus the fact you can just cut if off when it reaches ~250 to make sure you don't cut off any keywords in mid-word. As for the description, it being 150 character limit...you just cut it off and add ... at the end to show the sentence wasn't done.

    Either way, you guys can continue to have faecesty results, I'm going to look into making this more automated for my site bc editing 400,000+ threads doesn't appeal to me (not like I would edit that many but the idea of having to pick and choose between so many threads to manually edit is daunting).
  15. 7SiN added a post in a topic: Your auto meta tags need some work   

    I believe this is one part of the reasons why IPB forums rank so bad. I'm lucky enough to have millions of backlinks where that kind of overrides the poor SEO construction. One thing I feel that needs a lil attention and better output is the auto-meta tags.

    So let's take this thread for example once I post it. The meta tags will look something like this:
    keywords: Your, auto, meta, tags, need, some, work, believe, one, part, reasons, why, IPB, forums
    description: I believe this is one part of the reasons why IPB forums rank so bad. I'm lucky enough to have millions of backlinks where that kind of overrides the poor SEO construction...

    Roughly speaking, that's probably what it will look like. Why not do something smarter. People make titles for a reason and most of us are not ranking for single word searches but more so with long tail. Why not make the meta tags output different. Something like:
    keywords: Your auto meta tags need some work, Your, auto, meta, tags, need, some, work, believe, one, part, reasons, why, IPB, forums
    description: Your auto meta tags need some work. I believe this is one part of the reasons why IPB forums rank so bad. I'm lucky enough to have millions of backlinks where that kind...

    That way in the keywords, you have your title in the meta keywords a long with your single keywords you guys already output. On top of that, you repeat your title in the description, which helps describe the thread as most people's first sentence doesn't quite do the description justice and that way you actually have something in there that does describe it (as titles tend to describe what the page is typically about).

    Sorry for my post before. I just got done reading a majority of your posts, I understand where you are coming from now.

    Why do you hate ipb so much? Your board looks great and is extremely big.

  3. 7SiN

    Cool guys. I can't wait to leave this community. Worst I've ever been on...even vb.com's official forums. Congrats on being the best at being the worst.

    1. realmaverickuk

      More problems dude?

  4. 7SiN

    Yet another SEO topic bites the dust. At least Matt wants to hear from us. The rest of the staff think they are "know-it-alls" and don't actually know faeces and tend to lump all of us concerned with SEO into one stinkin' pile of crap rather than actually seeing how we run our communities. I'd like to see some of the staffs forums now that I think about it...

  5. 7SiN » csm

    Glad someone had the smarts to post in the SEO thread. I'm beginning to feel the majority of people saying IPB SEO isn't bad are just idiots and think all of us that want to improve it just want to do so for money. For me...it's so I can get the right information to people (FREE TOO!). I know my content is better than the sites I compete with yet...since converting, we appear under them or not at all.

  6. 7SiN » Michael

    I was late to the party on the new SEO thread. I think the thing you do NOT realize is that SEO for many of these admins (including myself) is the last peice to the puzzle. We have a great userbase but it has become stagnant. In my top 10 keywords, 4 are my site name. It wasn't like that before I moved here. And for your information, I'm one of the 2 that Matt is talking to about SEO. I just feel you are looking the other way when we are making our points (much like Rhett and ot...

    1. 7SiN

      other IPS staff). I'm just glad Matt is listening when no one else would.

    2. Michael

      I don't know what this is in regards to. You probably should have posted this in whatever topic you and I evidently both posted in.

    3. 7SiN

      It was one of the SEO threads that was closed and you had stated your opinion that those of us "focusing" on SEO are focusing on the wrong things.

  7. 7SiN » BanksyHF

    You seem to like my posts :P What's your story behind what I've said and you liking it?

  8. 7SiN » Marcher Technologies

    It's my fault I reported a bug and they ######ed up the fix? You seriously responded to me as if You think i was the one who screwed up the fix. It works fine on my board just sayin.

    1. Marcher Technologies

      It was not a bug in the first place.... raw queries are not an indicator of performance.... execution time is... it became a bug when they attempted to "fix" something that was not broken in the first place, therefore yes.

    2. 7SiN

      Updating blocks to a cache on every page load when they are not cached is a bug...

    3. Marcher Technologies

      Call it unfair if you will, but that "bug report" has thus far cost me 30+hrs additional work working with custom blocks... and I DO thank you for that.

    4. 7SiN

      And their screw ups didn't cause me any trouble?

    5. 7SiN

      I had nothing to do with their fix. They were the ones who chose to fix it how they wanted to fix it and they were the ones who messed it up more then it already was.

    6. Marcher Technologies

      the issue is.... it was 2 extra queries... and guess what... removing them does speed the exec time in the slightest... so was it worth it?

    7. Marcher Technologies

      does NOT*

    8. 7SiN

      Yes, We have about 300,000 page views on average per day. That means my site would be running 600,000 extra queries per day (assuming i only had 1 block, which wasn't the case). We pay alot of money for our MySQL server as is, upgrading it because of a stupid bug doesn't make sense.
      Maybe it's neglect-able on the sites you work on because they consist of about 10 members. But we can't spit at poor optimization.

    9. Marcher Technologies

      and no... by its very nature... a dynamic 0 cache block parses data based on the current user.... as such what the template parses to(which is how it is stored) would update based on that users info... * cache blocks dont update to any cache... because the relevant parsed info is already stored... 0-cache is dynamic as you well know... it was updating a cached copy for that user.

    10. 7SiN

      So how do I have it working?

    11. Marcher Technologies

      on a high-scale server(thanks for basically saying i only work for no-names) 90 optimized queries on a single page-load has a quicker execution time than 1 poorly optimized query....
      it was a simple buildAndFetch/update you griped about... very simply an efficient quick db pull/update... again you assume much, like the assumption raw query count is any sort of reliable indicator of performance.

    12. Marcher Technologies

      Additionally, I completely agree that it should be stored in an .xml... it should not even use the db, BUT, there is a time and place to investigate that... and THAT was not it.... we have enough to handle with upgrading IPC manually... did not need to deal with this at such a time.

    13. 7SiN

      That is not the case here...
      Here is what we will do.
      I will write 1 query.

      You can use the same query THEN add two more onto the end.
      We will see who performs better.

      I am in no way saying the raw query count is an indicator of performance. I am saying running queries that don't need to be run is an indicator of performance.

    14. Marcher Technologies

      EG, the exact reason feature implementations are rarely done BY IPS in minor point versions... stability is always preferable to a minor performance increase.... that "bug" report killed the stability of IPC, for the longest-running time of any IPC bug.

    15. 7SiN

      Again you are implying that it was my fault they took a month to post a fix.

    16. Marcher Technologies

      and in honesty... im agreeing with you... i personally think blocks should not use the database... for obvious reasons(a query running from data pulled by a query is never good)
      .xml would be a wiser solution, but all that being said, the timing was and still is atrocious.

    17. Marcher Technologies

      no... because that would imply it was a fix... which by no means it is...
      im stating that with 3.2.x just hit, i certainly could not expect the developers to drop everything to revolutionize how ipc works.... could you?
      im surprised it only took that month for the call to be made to revert the change.

    18. Marcher Technologies

      and rather than griping about it(we BOTH see the problems of current status quo) why not check your PM's? I propose rather than waiting on Farber to make IPC what it SHOULD be, why not work together to do something about it?
      Your gripes are many of my own gripes (that 90-query test actually executed faster than the default articles frontpage.)

  9. 7SiN

    Still waiting (feels like almost a month) for IPS to fix IP.C. What a POS it's become...

  10. 7SiN

      And I don't look at every gaming site. I just happened to click yours after seeing a reply you made. Then laughed my ass off seeing all the copy and pasting you or...

    7. 7SiN

      At least I'm an innovator and not a copier. You can't even come up with original ideas you scumbag. Let's see your site stay up for another 2 years. I DARE you. You are going to be crying in one more year that you are losing so much money, then the year after you will just try to prove a point to me. Which is fine bc it's your money and your crappy ass site.

    8. xCurlyx

      hey tjs learn to be a real webmaster and use your own content not to say your skin belongs to another site and you have illegal content on your site :) ill gladly report it to your host and for my good friend who you stole from.

    9. Mr Washington

      @xCurlyx my please my host is run on my admins own server so yeah and @7sin why you getting mad over the same forums names you must have a sad life to cry about that lol come on its just forums ha

    10. xCurlyx

      tjs cause its called stealing content ideas and peoples right to their stuff. And we will have the dmca get into this.

    11. Mr Washington

      I made my own stuff. We never took the awards, the rep layout? COME ON ITS A HOOK! I had the 7live idea years ago, like said above its a custom made footer made by me!, EVERYONE has the same user groups also.

      Dear TJ,
      As an administrator on se7ensins my opinion my be slightly bias. However, If you truly want to proclaim yourself as an inventor based out of what you have done, you may want to be checked for down syndrome. Copying ideas and tweaking them to make them your own is not innovation. At a skin level It seems pretty obvious that you had told your designer that you wanted your site to look similar to that of our own. Innovation is being 100% original.

There is not a doubt in my mind that upon our release of our new site that we will see a large amount of changes and ideas ripped to your site (assuming that you are capable of coding them). Being innovative means that you are not inspired by people leading you but that you are the one leading.

I cannot even begin to understand why you would try to insult my intelligence by telling me that you would like to see me develop a skin or an app? The fact that you think that I am not capable of doing so should be embarrassing to you as well as your site.

    Look at all the people clammering to comment on the blog about IP.Nexus + hosting. What a waste of code in a potentially great product.

    1. Charles

      That's a bit... shortsighted don't you think? It may not be a useful feature to you but many clients use it.

    2. Connor T

      Remember, the people here make up a tiny portion of the community :p

    3. 7SiN

      Yeah, I hear that quote quite a bit. I would think popular useful features are better than non-popular useful features. Just my opinion though. I just don't see why communities need to have software that can give hosting. Again, my opinion...

    4. JustHatched

      It's better to have more options than one needs, I don't need the hosting option but if I ever do it will be nice to have it there

      If you say so... I'd much rather them focus on coding things that the majority of people will use, not just a select few. Apparently some of my suggestions aren't as popular as this hosting on. *rolls eyes*

      We use forum software to create a community. This forum software and the addons should unite the people in the community and give them a reason to be active on the site and in most cases to buy a paid membership. We should be focusing on things that we can offer via Nexus for admins to make money off of that will be beneficial to the members of the community. I don't see how hosting is one of them. Why not just make the hosting package as a module in IP.Content, that way its much more...
