Amen! The forum developers left us in the dark. I jumped ship from UBB, then VB, and now I am with IPB and planning to ditch it too. These companies just don't get it apparently. It's all about user experience and all they want to do is take us backwards.
Does anyone have a mod or any way of forcing members to choose a group at their next login?
We made the mistake of eliminating user groups when we moved from Vbulletin and now we have both suppliers and distributors within our industry in one big group. We would like to separate them back out so we can have group specific features.
I've been saying it for years... the software needs to be easier to use - NOT more complex. People love Facebook because its simple. Forums are NOT. We ditched Vbulletin for this reason and now IPB is doing it too.
We're going in the wrong direction and it will only get worse if IPB doesn't listen to us.
I cannot reply to ticket 828175 or 828079 for some reason. Your system just keeps saying I did not enter a message.
So I am replying here. Per ticket 828175 and also ticket 828079 I acknowledge your standard disclaimer and would like xxxx.com and xxxx.com both upgraded to the latest version of everything.
