Wow, just came back here to look at what's going on with 4.0. The posting flexibility with content in a post seems to have gone bye bye. There is just BASIC stuff like bolding text. Where do I select the media tag? It seems everything is bare bones now for how you can reply and post? What did I miss? I was even thinking it might be smart enough to embed a youtube window into the post by just posting the link. Nope!
Upgrading and what they did with the skin will cost people $$ no doubt. Next time maybe they will realize this and not make total skin changes with only a DOT upgrade!! I am not happy about this 3.2 version. It's cost me money.
You guys should look at changing how people register because I even have a picture challenge question AND all of a sudden the last weeks your software is being EASILY blasted by spammers.
Unfortunately, you think that those of us who have been LOYAL from the beginning when Matt was first starting out and got a lifetime license now need to pay for this spam control feature that should be part of the board. However...it's not all roses with it either.
In addition, my other forum where I DO get spam control is still be inundated with spammers.
So, please think about improving the overall spam control. I don't think it's a coincidence the last month that IPboards are being targeted by spammers. There's a reason and it's lack of tight control right at the signup.
I have to agree on not getting to tied into Facebook and Twitter so tightly. What's here today is gone tomorrow. It has nothing to do with me liking them by the way. This could be a nightmare. It should have been left as a third party mod. Personal preferences should never enter into an engineering design phase and I can't help but think there is this influence. My users have never asked for this type of stuff....and look at how long I have been around here and following what Matt does. A LONG time.
Example: I would think a feature such as multiple user detection for SECURITY purposes would be a better feature that's much more valuable than Twitter/Facebook stuff. By far!
I am having users complain that there is now no "bar" to separate pinned topics versus actual new ones. Am I just missing something? Also, they cannot find LO FI mode either. And, neither can I! :) Yes, it is not hidden according to admin panel.
