    That's correct, Happenen. This feature has contributed to much of the revenue generated by user subscriptions on my site.

    Would you care to expand on why you've decided to drop XF?

    Thanks, Alex. Fortunately, I don't have too many attachments (and the ones I do have are stored in the file system). Are posts generally converted faster than members? In my testing, member conversion was running at approximately 333/minute, which means it would take about 9 and a half hours to do the users alone.
  7. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: Speeding Up the Conversion Process for Large Forums?   

    I'm planning out the conversion of my large vBulletin 3.8 forum (191,000 users, 5.3 million posts) to IPB 3.2. However, according my estimates (based upon trial runs carried out on the site's live hardware), the process will take about 12 days to complete. Obviously, the community cannot afford that much downtime, so I'm exploring my options.

    I could, for example, set up dedicated hardware to run the conversion script. However, I didn't notice an appreciable increase in load on the site's live server during my testing, so I'm not convinced the hardware is introducing any sort of bottleneck.

    Are there any other options or ideas for those of us who need to convert large forums in a reasonable amount of time?

    OK, thanks for the clarification, Alex.

    What happens if you close the browser window while the conversion script is...um...converting? Will it be able to pick up from where it left off if I attempt to run the conversion again, or will it start over?

    So, to clarify, when you re-run the conversion script for the second time, it's smart enough to only grab the new/changed users? Or does it re-convert everyone all over again?
  11. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: "Gift Subscriptions" with IP.Nexus?   

    Premium subscriptions, gifted to other users, are surprisingly popular among my community and enables my forum subscription service to bring in significant additional revenue. It's currently enabled on my forum with an aging vBulletin plugin, but I'm considering switching to IP.Board and IP.Nexus and was curious to know if such a feature/plugin exists or, if not, how difficult it would be to modify the software myself to enable this functionality?
  12. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: Integrating IP.Board with Disqus Single-Sign On   

    My blog runs on WordPress, and I'm considering moving my comment system over to Disqus. Have there been any efforts to integrate Disqus with an IP.Board user database, perhaps with IP.Converge, via Disqus' Single-Sign On API ?
  13. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: Notifications Preferences: 'Check All' Box   

    Oh, I see. In my case, I'd be importing users from a vBulletin 3.8 database. Would they lose their default email thread notification settings, or are those imported as expected?
  14. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: Notifications Preferences: 'Check All' Box   

    Ah, OK, interesting - thanks. I suppose that's something a few quick direct SQL queries could take care of.
  15. DeltaHF added a post in a topic: Notifications Preferences: 'Check All' Box   

    I was just exploring the notification system myself and came across this issue. Can notification preferences be set for everyone by default? As a user, I'd expect to be "notified" of everything by default, then throttle back notifications I find I don't want.

    Just noticed my account was ignoring a user who I don't know, and don't remember ignoring. Any ideas on what's up with that?

    1. Tom Christian

      might have ignored him accidently?

    2. DeltaHF

      Maybe so, but frankly, I'm not even sure how to do that.

    3. Shadow82x

      You could of mis-clicked the "X" next to the members signature.

    4. DeltaHF

      Thanks, Shadow. I thought that only ignored signatures, though?
