  1. 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. 
  4. 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.
  5. Lindy added a post in a topic: SEO: How much do you care?   

    This should be an interesting topic.
    Since this is general chat, I'll give my personal opinion irrespective of IPS (/disclaimer): If some people focused half as much on solid content as they do trying to play cat and mouse with Google, they'd be far more successful. 
    Just my personal observation from doing this for so many years. The large sites less concerned with SEO typically have strong, organized content and if you asked them about anything beyond the basics of SEO they'd give you a blank stare. Those that have somewhat weaker content try to compensate with every SEO advantage or trick they can garner and that works for them too, I suppose. 
    Basic SEO is important -- content and structure is key... in my humble opinion.
  6. Lindy added a post in a topic: Post count   

    ​You are correct to an extent - while every app is important, we are definitely largely focused on the suite as a whole - I'm sorry to hear that you consider that a negative thing. We do recognize that those who are strictly "all about forums" in a traditional sense may not agree this approach and a select few may unfortunately opt for alternate solutions, but we can't cater to a narrowed yet broad focus simultaneously and there are plenty of others out there doing the forum-only thing. 
    What we are doing in this particular situation, is laying the framework that allows you or marketplace authors to take individual application content counts and do as you wish with them. We are not, at this time, putting in toggles to turn counts on and off for different apps - you can easily enough extract what's important to you and make use of the information as you see fit and as relevant to your goals for your community. That's one of the beauties of IPS4 that you will find if you're able to step outside the box of forums and see the big picture. 
    With that, I want to be clear that we've heard the feedback, we've listened and we've added what I previously described to our roadmap for a near-future map. After this occurs, there's no reason for further discussion, so I'm going to begin closing these types of topics so we can move forward in a less distracting fashion. Hopefully you understand that we're not shunning feedback -- to the contrary, you've all spoken, we've listened and done what we can to accommodate. We don't always agree on all points and sometimes that's for broader reasons than what can be covered here, but we do value all feedback. At some point, we have to end discussion as we can easily go in circles endlessly. 
    Feel free to open a new topic at a later date if there's further feedback to offer that hasn't been covered here. Thanks for your understanding.

    I might suggest that you take the time to read and understand what delta upgrades are and how IPS provides them through the ACP before furthering this little outburst.
  8. Lindy added a post in a topic: Show yourself   

    ​Humble too!
  9. Lindy added a post in a topic: What kind of Internet connection you have?   

    ​Wow - blast from the past! Hope you're well, Lister.

  10. Lindy added a post in a topic: What happened to bulk mail filter based on Nexus package?   

    I'm following up on this internally. I have a feeling this is merely an oversight. 
  11. Lindy added a post in a topic: Hashtaging   

    Personally speaking, hashtags may be one of the worst things that ever happened to the Internet. I would be shocked if 1 out of 200 people know how to use them properly/constructively. 
    That said, we have some pretty significant tagging improvements planned. Hashtags, if I can help it, will certainly not be a part of it. 
  12. Lindy added a post in a topic: Where's the announcement forum?   

    We've not announced IPS4 yet. That's intentional. It w​ill be there and future releases will be there as well. 
  13. Lindy added a post in a topic: Development Section   

    ​They're asking as non-contributors. 
  14. Lindy added a post in a topic: Development Section   

    ​I'm confused - what did you have in mind? You said you'd like a place to ask development questions - so I dedicated that forum to that purpose. I'm sure our devs are willing to help, time permitting. What else were you looking for? 
  15. Lindy added a post in a topic: Where's the announcement forum?   

    ​I've made this clearer.
