    Thank you for the feedback.
    This banner is for the forum. I'll try and change it a bit.

    Hey guys. I am in need of some quick constructive feedback on a banner I made in photoshop. Could y'all let me know what you think?

    Thanks!
  3. Kyle. added a post in a topic: vBulletin 3.8 to IP.Board 2.3.6 Converters   

    Hey,
    So as some may know I like to use the legacy 2.3.6 version of IP.Board and have subsequently gotten permission to "upgrade/update" some files and add newer features that are useful to me as long as I don't reupload the "updated" versions publicly.
    Proof:

    Is it possible to still "convert" a vBulletin 3.8.x forum to IP.Board 2.3.6? I do not have any of the legacy converters which is why I am posting about it here and requesting it.
    Thank you.
  4. Kyle. added a post in a topic: Perpetual licenses being done away with.   

    Are we still legally allowed to use legacy versions of IP.Board (such as 2.3.x (like I'm using) as long as the license key is in the IPB License Settings or is that illegal now? Because I'm NOT upgrading to v4. It looks horrible. Both the board and Admin CP. Forums are mainly used on DESKTOPs/LAPTOPS. NOT mobile devices/phones...so why make the board/ACP look like Windows 8's layout/mobile device? It's all flat...it's disgusting to say the least.
     
    I'd personally rather stick to 2.3 regardless of what bugs/errors or security issues you (IPS) seem to say it has.. As far as spam bots, I've already done my appropriate measures to counter them and stop them from registering without disturbing the smooth ability of visitor registrations.

    I'm not 100% positively sure it's tied to a servers IP, but is definitely tied to the URL of which the license key was entered and loaded to.
  6. Kyle. added a post in a topic: If someone got my license number   

    If someone steals your license key, I'd advise having it reset/changed immediately. Although they can't exactly do anything with it as it's only set for your board. However some people seem to assume that if they use someone else's license key, that their "board" is licensed and verified as being licensed by IPS, which is definitely not the case here.
     
    If you suspect your key being stolen, you can file a ticket in your Client Area requesting it be reset. Please note that if you've changed your license key (reset it) once already in your 6 month period you will have to pay a fee of $15.

    I've never had this email before.
  8. Kyle. added a post in a topic: Database Driver Error   

    It may be a good idea to code wrap your driver errors in future posts, Jordi. Just saying. :) That was too long to scroll down reading. :P I'm not sure if anyone else noticed but it also says something about a MySQL syntax error.

    Date: Sun, 25 May 2014 15:52:44 +0000 Error: 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'ORDER BY start_date DESC LIMIT 0,7' at line 1 IP Address: 94.226.185.97 - /forums/index.php?/topic/228-lol-tournament-2-vs-2-end-screenshot-topic/
  9. Kyle. added a post in a topic: Security   

    Are you wanting to have or use a password strength level for passwords or require passwords to be changed each month? I'm confused here?
     
    As far as this, I'd suggest you install Global Forum Message by Adriano Faria . You may use this as a global "announcement" message to your users to make sure they use secure passwords and that they change them in x days/months.
  10. Kyle. added a post in a topic: Steam Login Integration   

    Is it possible to get a Steam Login API for 2.3? I know 2.3 is way out-dated and unsupported but that doesn't mean it's no longer part of the IPB software, and this section IS IP.Board. (And also does not say that it's only FOR the latest releases only) I was wondering if it's possible to make a modification to allow the use of Steam login for IP.Board 2.3.x? :)
     
    Thanks

    To some people, that would be annoying. Just saying. ;)
  12. Kyle. added a post in a topic: IPB Nulled Forums   

    Precisely as Brandon said.. this "idea" would inevitably fail. There is no way for IPS to "automatically" take down forums that are unlicensed. That's like saying boards that still run IP.Board 2.3.6 (like mine now) is unlicensed just because it's not up-to-date. I have my IPB License key in the IPB License Settings. That's all that matters, whether or not my license has expired. Not that I refuse to renew it, but this simply just restricts me from upgrading my current software version along with support.
  13. Kyle. added a post in a topic: We encountered a problem processing your login request   

    Yeah, I haven't had a chance to renew it yet. Even though I'm using IP.Board 2.3.6 (heavily customized and updated a few things) it's actually working perfectly fine. :P
  14. Kyle. added a post in a topic: We encountered a problem processing your login request   

    Yeah, when I logged into my account here at IPS, that's when I got the error. I was about to rage as I thought I'd been randomly banned! -.-
     
    People threaten to report me for having a "pirated IP.Board" a lot just because they're jealous that they cannot afford an IP.Board License. :lol:
  15. Kyle. added a post in a topic: We encountered a problem processing your login request   

    I just logged into the forums and got this error? Thought I'd post a thread reporting it but didn't know which section to post it in. Sorry. :/

  1. Kyle.

    Finally renewed license...

  2. Kyle.

    sigh...stupid email notifications from my dedi saying its banned a bunch of IPs...JOYFUL!

    1. Amy T

      Spammers or ddos?

    2. Kyle.

      Neither. Some people keep attempting to login to my dedi via root...one person I had an argument with lives 2 hours from me in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire UK...I had an email saying an IP from Stoke on Virgin Media tried to exploit my server but failed and had his IP auto perma banned... :P Several attempts to access my dedi have been made from different countries.

    3. Amy T

      Ah ok. I have had the system block my own ip before.

    4. AlexJ

      What did u add to get those email notifications? Does fail2ban sends email notification also?

    5. Kyle.

      Not sure. I entered my email into my WHM configuration for email notifications.

      Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup:
      Contact Information
      * Enter one or more email addresses to contact in case a problem arises with this server. - My email
      * Enter one or more cellular phone or pager email addresses to message via email in case a problem arises with this server. - My email.

    6. Amy T

      You use cpanel? I have not used that in a long time. I prefer directadmin.

    7. AlexJ

      Oh dang.... i just use shell.. need to figure out...

    8. Kyle.

      I use ConfigServer Firewall (CSF) for my security and what not.

    9. Amy T

      I use that it took me a while to figure out how to install it. But the host was very helpful. Only firewall I know that works with directadmin. So how much trouble did you have getting csf on cpanel?

    10. Kyle.

      None. I installed it via WHMXtra. :)
