I think anyone with some sense would convert away from a software without attention to such details. I think it's a very dangerous road to start discarding things based on size, a single bee can be squashed, a hundred can take you down...
I'd also like to note I was trying to look for certain files today and searching wasn't a pleasant experience at all because I was having multiple entries of files I wasnt looking for cluttering up my search results. It's very nice you've a more advanced system now, but in some usecases it's more of a hassle than rudimentary systems such as title based search. Including mine just some time ago. ;)
I like most of it - but what I dont like is that the "blocks" arent the same size. I think it would look quite a lot better if by some magic they would be resized to the same height. I'd also like a bit less gray space (but thats my personal cavaet with IPB4 - I feel a lot of space is empty, dull) and it would be amazing if there'd be an option to give the blocks a custom background - like a collage of forums maybe with a glassy effect. Just thinking.
Which is totally understandable, people don't mean to be rude or such, it's just that this is a forum filled with people with technical knowledge, people who've been checking those blog posts for months I hope it'l be just as skinnable as IPB3 (if not more so, many iPB3 themes seemed to look alike). I honestly have to say I think this design is really unattractive, that's my personal taste. I'd hate it if all themes were going to be variations of this. The rest of the stuff seems awesome though. I've read a stuff on IPSConnect before, and that's my favourite change. SSO throughout multiple websites, now that's a welcome change to me. The amount of quality (and affordable) mods, and the diversity of mods, took a huge nosedive in my opinion when switching from IPB2 to IPB3. It changed from a largely free modbase with all kinds of oddness (from TeamSpeak 3 syncs to entire freaking games and so on) to mostly basic things, often for a price. I really hope the changes to the plugin system will reverse that, if it makes it even worse this won't be a viable software for me, for one.

I agree I have no use whatsoever of the selling hosting package option, my main use of nexus is for selling physical products and also the odd advertising slots.
Just because you have no use for it does not mean others don't.
Could all of you be so kind and accept the fact IP.Nexus is made to please multiple types of users, not just your own? Guys? Please?
