  1. Chel added a post in a topic: Invoice creation - changes needed for german users   

    An invoice is "this is what we want you to pay". It is a request for payment, not a demand and not legally binding. If generating said invoice causes financial difficulties for you under your country's laws, I can't see how IPS can be responsible.

    If I'm a car salesman, and you agree to buy a car from me, I will write you an invoice. You have no legal requirement to pay the money; you can still walk away. If I decided to print all invoices on gold leaf paper, making them very expensive for me, the situation doesn't change - I could still get 100 people coming through the door, agreeing to purchase, getting some gold leaf, and leaving my store, bankrupting me.

    An invoice must be issued prior to any payment; the invoice is the bill. If that invoice costs you money to produce, then that's unfortunate, but not something that IPS are doing wrong.

    That's all it does? A CSV of email addresses? $10?

    Sounds like scam of the century.
  3. Chel added a post in a topic: please allow avatars to appear of users who create topics along with topic   

    Personally, I agree with this guy, and I'm disappointed you all shot him down.

    I'm still running 3.1.4 (still!) and I like having the thread starter name in a column of its own - it makes things easy. Adding the avatar there would be great.

    When I upgrade to 3.3, I lose this column, and starters are placed under topic title. I'm going to have to mod this, as I want to retain topic descriptions (a la the mod that does so), so I want starter off in its own column.

    It's be nice to have the choice on some of these things.
  4. Chel added a post in a topic: More than 100 queries for a thread ?!   

    I thought so, but you wouldn't believe the number of times a conversation misses the vital input :D
  5. Chel added a post in a topic: More than 100 queries for a thread ?!   

    Just to confirm (and make it clear), are you saying that these loads are because this is the first time anyone has visited this thread since conversion, and will only happen once, not once for each member?
  6. Chel added a post in a topic: Got a question before purchasing   

    You're right, asp options are all limited, which is why I moved to ipb.

    Can asp and php play nice?
  7. Chel added a post in a topic: Lacking a mobile app under IP.Board 3.3.0   

    I've done a lot of custom work under IP.Content - but not using databases/articles.

    Will I be able to template it in some way that it can be used in the app?
  8. Chel added a post in a topic: bring the TAB back   

    Super, I might just do that (still on 3.1.4 till 3.3 launches on Friday).

    And really, shift+tab should be a reverse cycle.
  10. Chel added a comment on a blog entry: Social Groups 2.0 Dev Update: Addons and Pages   

    That screencast alone will have me purchasing this. For months I've been seeing 'Social Groups' and never given it a second look, but this is ace.

  11. Chel added a post in a topic: bring the TAB back   

    I completely agree with this.
  12. Chel added a comment on a blog entry: Additional IPS Community Enhancements   

    While I'm very much encouraged by what's above, I find myself a little disheartened at the release of an iOS app with no mention of an android app. Android has a greater market share then iOS (50% vs 30%, give or take), so why wasn't it developed first? When can we expect it?
  13. Chel added a post in a topic: Web Wiz 9.69 conversion 9.69 9.69   

    I paid $120 to have that converter made 15 months ago, so I'd hope it could be easily adapted, as that is a lot of moneyto shell out for what is probably a simple change.
  14. Chel added a post in a topic: Sorry....gonna need to be walked thru this conversion....   

    I'm fairly sure the IPB staff will do most of this for you, if you submit a ticket.
  15. Chel added a post in a topic: Merging IPB Forums   

    That's a terrible idea.

    Each member ID is associated with tons of stuff on the forum, from posts to comments to settings. Changing a member's number will disassociate all of their information.

    If you wrote a script to go through every table adjusting memberID, I'd imagine that could work. However, when you try to merge them, you would find exactly the same problem with posts. And threads. And forums. And pretty much everything else.

    I'm not sure there is a simple way to perform the task that you plan. Your task really is to take one of the databases and convert it so that not one single record overlaps with the other database. Once that is achieved you would be able to merge them, but achieving that? I think I would ask IPB about it, and quite honestly, I'd expect to have to pay a lot for it.
