  1. Maksim added a post in a topic: Are stats important to building a community?   

    I personally like seeing them, as an admin.

    Not necessarily the number of "members" but I do like the number of posts and topics.

    The members number is deceiving as tons of forums have a ton of spam of registrations. This is why I like VB's Acitive Members stat.

    You went the same route I did a few years ago.

    Started the forum on phpbb 3 years ago. Then, took the big step to upgrade to IPB after having lack of professional support on phpbb, and having to get a plugin for everything.

    Welcome to the club.

    Nice site, btw... change your FavIcon. =)

    Stuart, having a hard time...

    How would I do it exactly?

    I have a list of all members who need feedback, along with a number of positives.

    Have not played with it yet... But will it be ok to just go through the members and enter in one number in the table? Or do I have to fill in the rest such as classifieds link, etc.

    How is your system better or what are the tangible benefits to paying for your ad system if we already have nexus?

    Purchased this app and so far it is awesome. We have kept a post with username and a number +4 or whatever for feedback score. We want to import this into the trader app. Is this doable? Can't find how.

  7. Maksim added a post in a topic: IPChat needs work...   

    Here are the ideas that my users had....

    Ability to link to images in chat that are stored on our forum, rather than images on the internet.
    Ability to invite people into Chat from the forum, inside the chat room
    Ability to have private chat with multiple users.

    Are all the Ip.Nexus issues with 1.5.7 solved?  Ie... paypal recurring billing, and subscriptions via paypal?
  9. Maksim added a post in a topic: Self-hosted system requirements   

    IPB is not bad at all on the resources, which also depends on number of add ons... however after year of phpbb on a shared provider, switched to IPB and was much faster... then as forum grew... switched to VPS, and kept upgrading, and now working on getting everything over to a dedicated.

    As far as hosts... depends on who and how oversold they are. I have one vps that I kept as a backup, however it is slower than my first shared hosting provider.

    How would I be able to?
  11. Maksim added a post in a topic: Page views by user groups?   

    Is there an easy way to find out how many page views on a monthly basis or whatever the time frame, for members of various user groups?

    ie... premium vs regular members, etc.

    I am on 3.2.4 right now and will be updating to the 3.4.x, I want to install this.... what would be the best way?  Upgrade then install new? install now, wait for 1.3?
  13. Maksim added a post in a topic: Classifieds   

    I don't think there was a working 3.3.0 version to begin with.

    Anyone able to install this on 3.3.0 yet?
  14. Maksim added a post in a topic: IP.Board & The Forum Will Be Dead Within 5 Years   

    If you have a weak site, with weak content, niche, sense of community, yes, your forum may be dead.

    I think Facebook and other social media sites are just going to accelerate the weak players from the strong players. Unless facebook makes their own forum software, it is not going to happen. Just like email did not kill the paper industry, neither is facebook going to. In fact, learn to embrace facebook to drive traffic to your forum community, don't be afraid of your people leaving to go to facebook.

    So basically, do not update this to 3.3.0 if you use Classifieds unless you want a 50/50 of the system working. Will wait to purchase until this is resolved.
