The member was using windows 8.1 on a laptop and was trying to sign up using Internet Explorer 11. The message they kept getting was: "An error occurred while reading the recaptcha server" or something of that sort. They tried 5 times on IE with the same message until they gave up and installed Chrome I don't know if it was a cookies problem or certificate issue. Maybe antivirus set up or proxy. I couldn't tell you why it wasn't working their end, but it did work with Chrome. Maybe it's possible the recaptcha server was down and it had nothing to do with the browser. Not sure if this is possible but maybe you should look at adding a check to see if the recaptcha server is up or down and only show the recaptcha if it's up.
FaceBook is hands down our biggest competitor. Thankfully our members are looking for anonymity and many aren't willing to "share" on FaceBook. We've harnessed that power thus far but it's going to be difficult moving forward as long as we're not ahead of FaceBook technologically and intuitively!!!!
I'm not positive I'd wait. IPB will release the public beta in a few weeks? How long will it take for a truly stable release? 6-9 months - at a minimum ? Guess it really depends on your budget and launch timeline.
It will be x :thumbsup: I'm willing to make the statement for you. Hope it's sooner than later. Mobile is here - to stay, in a big, huge, humongous way. Especially for content publishers, like forums. The way I see it, IPS doesn't have other options at this juncture. It's either they release apps, support responsive design or both. IPS's actions over the last year made it (crystal) clear they're not heading in the app direction. Only option for IPS to stay ahead in the mobile game now is to offer responsive design.
