    I'm pretty sure <br> tags are deprecated.
  2. The Heff added a post in a topic: Hold on, IPS want blank posts?   

    ​Very informative post. Bravo.

    Even on Facebook I don't think you can  like  private messages. It's a conversation, not a status update.
    I'd want a way to disable it if it made it in.

    ​I've not found that the Shoutbox detracts from forum activity. I have found it helps to keep the forum itself on topic and that general conversation takes place in the Shoutbox. We simply ask our members not to use the Shoutbox for help and advice that would better benefit our members as a forum post.
  5. The Heff added a post in a topic: Followers Are Superior To Friends   

    If I want an inflated friends list I can go on Facebook.
    the friends feature in IP.Board always struck me as a little pointless. It didn't really do anything beyond letting me follow their content or bulking up a pointless list in my profile. My friends know they are my friends and they don't need to be on a list to know that.
    Can somebody point out why a friends list is better than a followers list without philosophical nonsense being attached?

    I would go with widgets. It will afford us the flexibility of putting the Shoutbox into different places.
    It's looking good so far.

    I recall the refresh rate being in place because IPS were getting a lot of support requests relating to it. It can be quite crippling on big boards and can cause problems on shared hosting. The very fact it can be used on IPS's own hosting probably factors into that.

    Well your replies are amusing, so I guess the sense of humour is working.

    I wish I could help you Pete but I'm no coder.

    ​If you actually read the context of my reply, I started out by stating it's been through a number of developers because it was too demanding. Why don't you read/quote everything I said instead?

    Take your time @Pete T , we appreciate your work and most of us will patiently wait for it.

    You chaps may not be aware but the Shoutbox has been through quite a few developer because it was too demanding of their time.
    Since Pete isn't charging for the Shoutbox you might want to cut him some slack and be content in the knowledge that, yes, it is being worked on and it'll be ready when it's ready.  I'm sure Pete will share progress as soon as he can.

    It's real world usage that helps IPS improve performance so it's a good thing they do release them and that some people do upgrade.
    I have an IT background and I've yet to see any UAT or system testing that can truly replace real world use.
