    As you might imagine, we are enthralled in bug reports, polish and improvements so it's nice to read positive feedback. Thank you for taking the time to post.

    There aren't many that I hold in higher regard than those that serve and are willing to sacrifice it all so we may enjoy the freedoms that we so often take for granted. 
     
  3. Lindy added a post in a topic: Bug Tracker with 20 pages and growing. What is the plan IPS guys?   

    We've stated elsewhere that the bug tracker is not our sole source for working through bugs. In the case of IPS4, most of the bugs reported and fixed are filtering primarily through the support system. The public tracker will be getting more attention, hopefully beginning next week. Much of this will simply be going through the tracker and marking what has already been fixed (which is a significant amount) as fixed. 
    Our primary concern is working with customer impacting issues and these surface mostly through support escalations. The rest will be dealt with using the normal bug reporting process. From a client perspective, you shouldn't be overly concerned with the number of bugs publicly facing in the bug tracker -- many are duplicates, many are fixed and many are low-impact to be addressed. If you are having an immediate site impacting issue, please support a ticket. If you've discovered a normal bug that's not already reported, please use the bug tracker. 
    Thanks.

    At this time, there's no immediate plans, I'm afraid.

    ​I'm sorry for the confusion -- perhaps we should have clarified that this is a short-term approach. Naturally, as SOP, we don't expect you to upgrade on a whim to determine if a bug is fixed if the upgrade is going to otherwise be disruptive. 
    In the short-term, we are working a bit differently for the beginning stages of IPS4. Because of the sheer volume of support requests, we are fixing the majority of bugs via the ticket system. Eventually, the bug tracker will be a better live indication of what's happening. Right now, our primary concern is to keep things moving - which I'm sure you can agree that we're doing relatively well. With the hundreds of requests we're fielding every day, it's just not feasible (at this very moment) to cross-reference every bug report against every ticket which again, is where most bugs are being resolved currently. We'll be shifting focus as things continue to stabilize and the bug tracker will regain better organization. 
    In the meantime, thanks for your patience.

    It's been this way for nearly a decade. If you don't renew, you're no longer considered an active client. It doesn't inhibit your ability to post feedback, bugs, etc. You're just not recognized as a client and lose access to the client lounge because... well, you're not an active client.

    MarcusH is correct. The Clients group can be thought of more as "Active Clients."

    We have upgraded this site to 4.0.5 which rebuilds all posts, etc. -- so the background processes are still running, which is the cause for the slowdown.
    The other error will need to be investigated by the developers.

    We don't need an update each time. We're investigating.
  10. Lindy added a post in a topic: IPS 4 Gallery - Needs Work   

    Feedback from development: 
    BugBugFeature suggestion - shouldn't be an issue to do.BugYou can, through permissions, make it so people cannot upload images (thereby making it album only) and you can also turn off the ability to create albums (thereby making it image only). If this doesn't behave as expected, it would be a bug -- please file a bug report.As discussed, we agree and this will be revised - no ETA at this time. 
  11. Lindy added a post in a topic: IPS 4 Gallery - Needs Work   

    It seems to me there's a mixture of bugs (like #1) and feedback in there. We'll need to review further, but #6 is going to be resolved as we agree it's not as intuitive as it needs to be. 
  12. Lindy added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update   

    ​Yes, that was a mistake. We patch 3.3 as well currently. I've updated the entry.

    Spammers! Banned. 
  14. Lindy added a post in a topic: robots.txt   

    We do not include a robots.txt in IPS4 as it is not needed. Guest links can be removed entirely for inaccessible sections, so there's nothing for search engines to exclude as they won't see it anyway.
