Kyanar's Activity

  1. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Additional IPS option request   

    They've said on numerous occasions that this is never going to happen. It just encourages witch-hunts by overzealous fans and gives people a bad impression of the company. If you suspect that a site is nulled, then just report it and move on - it's not your job or responsibility to be IPS' copyright police - they have people for that.
  2. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Sending post to all users   

    No forum has this feature. They can subscribe people to all new topics, but not once have I ever seen a forum that allows you to force subscribe individuals to every single reply. Mostly because that's a fast track to a Spamhaus listing.

    This is the sort of thing best left to hooks, not the base product.
  3. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Sending post to all users   

    Uh, no, most forums do not have such a feature. Certainly not one which the user cannot override - what you are describing is called "spam", and is technically illegal.
  4. Kyanar added a post in a topic: access to old versions   

    The customer is contracting him to upgrade his 2.3 skin to the latest version - I'd say that's an intention to upgrade to 3.x in the very near future :)
  5. Kyanar added a post in a topic: consistency in your code.   

    Sounds like a config problem. Mine doesn't do it ;)

  6. Kyanar added a post in a topic: IP.Chat + Webcam   

    Just don't be surprised if the price goes up. Astronomically . To do video chat, you'd need server infrastructure running Flash Media Server or similar (at hideous expense) and the bandwidth use would be MASSIVE .
  7. Kyanar added a post in a topic: please add the bump button in 3.2   

    That would be quite an achievement. 3.5 hasn't even been released yet, if it ever will be.
  8. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Expected Output Monitoring enhancements   

    For what it's worth, I eventually gave up on this feature and have New Relic monitor the content instead. But it still would be good to have this feature working for those who don't want to pay $100/mo per server for monitoring.
  9. Kyanar added a post in a topic: IPB Breaks the One-Document-Per-URL Paradigm   

    For what it's worth, it is a bit weird that it looks like the URLs there are urlencoded twice...
  10. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Number 5 on my whisy list - Threadted forum   

    Unfortunately I'm pretty sure you will not see threaded conversations return - they actually used to be a feature of IP.Board until they were removed because no-one used the feature.
  11. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Is it possible to add the option   

    I really don't see the problem with providing access. It's very easy to create an FTP and ACP user with no direct access to harmful tools or directories - on my own server, the (usually disabled) IPS Support account can only access and modify files in the IP.Board root directory (I'm too lazy to work out how to root the FTP access to a specific directory in IIS FTP) and only from a very limited pool of IPs to ensure that even if the details are disclosed, they are useless to any other user. In the ACP, the account is also usually disabled as well to ensure that the ACP details are useless if compromised too.

    You're essentially asking them to fix your issue with both hands tied behind their back. The fact that they try and help you at all under those circumstances is nothing short of miraculous - with most of the enterprise vendors I have to work with, if the answer to "let's do a WebEx and we'll look at your system" is "no", then they simply outright refuse support. Just to point out as well, according to the standards of service (Terms of Sale) IPS has the right to refuse support if you won't provide access as well.
  12. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Are you planning to start to pay for the found bugs   

    Well, for a start, companies like Google and Mozilla do not actually pay for bugs - they pay a bounty on critical security flaws - and we have no evidence to suggest that IPS does or does not pay a bounty on those privately. It's entirely possible that they do, but don't make a big deal about it.

    But pay for bugs? Won't happen. Ever. No company pays for bugs.
  13. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Creating a Hosting Website with IPB   

    Also, you're strongly recommended to purchase copyright removal - otherwise every page will have a link to a direct competitor!
  14. Kyanar added a post in a topic: Don't use Mandrill   

    That's OK, I just don't get any mail from here at all. Postini flags it all as spam and dumps it in the quarantine.
  15. Kyanar added a post in a topic: E-mail Routing   

    The way you describe it is how Kayako at least does this, and I much prefer it this way (little niggles like this are why I disable the support functionality in Nexus).

    Mark, ideally the way it'll work is that the department itself has an incoming and outgoing email. When the ticket is replied to by a staff member, then the email comes from the outbound email address of the department the ticket is currently assigned to. When a ticket reply is received via email from the customer, it is appended to the existing ticket (the email it is sent to is actually ignored). I haven't tested recently, but I think that if the ticket is closed then it simply creates a new ticket.

    I just found out about your ibContact mod today & it sounds amazing! I signed up for your newsletter to receive updates as I'll definitely buy it when it's released. ^_^

  2. flaregun » Kyanar

    any word on the ibContact mod? It's the last piece of the puzzle for my site...

  3. A_awake » Kyanar

    hey, please check pm!

  4. Collin1000 » Kyanar

    Happy Birthday!!!

  5. Kyanar

    IPB? Missing feature? There's an app for that.

    1. shamil

      I agree. Now, I need one :P

  6. Kyanar

    Java update is beginning to hack me off. The CONSTANT UAC approval requests, every fricking day!

    1. Hennet

      disable uac :p

    2. Kyanar

      Oh hay-el no. I tried to disable Java Update, but it wouldn't have a bar of that. I know if it updates Java, Eclipse will break.

  7. » Kyanar

    Submitted a ticket on your site, very disappointed I can't use my paid application. :(

  8. Kyanar

    Aaaaand... there's your pre-sale.

  9. Kyanar

    Just got Starcraft II, and realised I can't activate it becuase I don't know where my keytag is. Grr.

    Six copyright links on a single skin. How NOT to market yourself.

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Always been the same thing. Only new thing is the credit box thingy. The skins are cheap, and you can remove the copyright for 30 bucks.

    2. Olivier Turbis

      just replied on Skinbox, Mat.

    3. AnthonyKinson

      what skins have 6 copyright links?

    4. Olivier Turbis

      Ours by default, but you can actually remove the half of them.

    5. Wolfie

      Why so many? o.O

    6. Olivier Turbis

      Always been the same thing. Only new thing is the credit box thingy which you can REMOVE.

    7. AnthonyKinson

      ahhh, cool, i'm not to fussed aslong as they aint all bunched together in one big area.

    8. Fishfish0001

      Its not really annoying. 2 are hidden in a popup, which is cool looking. I only know of 4, but Im probably just not looking :P

    9. DarkGizmo

      What skin is this?

    10. Fishfish0001

      Orb. And all of them.

    11. Wolfie

      One at the bottom, somewhere near the IPB copyright is plenty. More than that is excessive.

    12. Collin1000

      Screenshot or something? Im curious...

    13. Kyanar

      Thanks Olivier, all's well that ends well :). I just seemed a bit cheezy that in paid skins there was a big popup (yeah, I know you had to click on it) - and I did *not* like Sebastien's responses to legitimate concerns from lots of customers.

  11. Kyanar

    This place has more drama than Desperate Housewives today.

    1. Collin1000

      Oh yes.

    2. PKIDelirium

      Drama llamas everywhere

    Finally upgraded to 3.1.1. Had to use one of the shell scripts too. Feel proud.

    @loyalpk: noone will switch to 2co for IPB mods and skins. The chargeback fees would bankrupt us and it costs more.

  17. Collin1000 » Kyanar

    I love your staff post color mod! Keep up the great work! Thanks for being so helpful in the community. :)

  18. Kyanar » Louis M.

    Whaddaya mean "why can windows not have chmod" - it's got "cacls" ya know!

  19. Kyanar

    Act. As always. Not like I relish the thought, working in government as I do.

  20. CTerry » Kyanar

    So what do you reckon? National/Maori coalition? National/ACT coalition? National minority government?

  21. .Ryan » Kyanar

    @your post about TurXaliM... that had me rolling :P

  22. Kyanar » DixieWebster

    So I'm not the only one. I hate spammers.

  23. Millar » Kyanar

    Nice posts you have made. They get to the point!

  24. UBERHOST.NET » Kyanar

    Quite an eye for detail, this one.

  25. .Timmy » Kyanar

    I love all of your responses regarding point systems being integrated into IPB. It amazes me how so many people beg IPS to put in a feature that they want that isn't even useful to the majority of the IPB community.
