I'm not too sure where to ask this so have put it in here.
When 4.0 is released and the forum is no longer part of the core. does that mean it would be possible to use the invision framework without using any of the invision apps.
For example if I wanted to run a arcade site, would it be possible to use the framework and arcade app by themselves.
I've got a couple of forums that once IP connect matures and works (or I can get it to work) across different sites properly, I will be linking together. Rather than having a arcade on each of them I was thinking of just having the one that's independent of the main sites that I can send people to using the logins from the main forums.
I'd like to see more integration between the software for networks of sites.
Ip connect is a good start, but it needs to be taken to the next level, with more a more active transfer of data, syncroning warnings and profile information across sites, sso across domains not just sub domains. Being able to move topics across sites, etc. being able to use nexus to sell ads on each site from from one store ect, basically like Wordpress multi site but on steroids.
They sell to people in the EU, so I don't think saying your not a EU based company is a get out of jail free card. But saying that I'm no legal expert but I wouldn't personally expect them to anyway, its just what I had read.
Edit, for some reason it won't allow me to quote you.
I remember reading when I was doing my research that the UK Information Commission had said there would be a expectation of software developers to make their software compliant, so if that's the case then there is some burden on IPS to make sure the software complies.
The problem is this isn't a European Law, its a directive that the member states have to implement in local law and that's where the problem is stemming from. Each member can implement it differently, and to different extents.
I mean the ICO in the UK changed its interpretation of it at the 11th hour and said implied consent is fine, and has been said before even the Government websites haven't implemented it properly, until they do, we've got nothing to worry about, as if the ICO wanted to go after anyone for it, (which they've said they won't, as long as they are trying to implement it) there are far bigger fish for them to go after first.
if I asked any of my members what bbcode was they wouldn't have a clue and most user are the same. the use the editor to make any changes to the text they want. i would say though that heh change needs to be made to just html then it needs to be done quickly and not be drawn out.
When ever I have a problem I'll try searching the site, then asking on the forum, then as a last resort will file a ticket. There seems to be a lot of the same questions being asked that don't seem to be answered.
I've just been thinking that I bet that support get asked a lot of the same questions over and over by different people, so wouldn't it be a good idea if they started to publish those common questions with the answers (obviously with any personal information removed) somewhere on the site in the form of a knowledge base. It would allow much more self service and free up the support teams time. I'd also suggest adding common questions asked on the forums to it as well.
