  1. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: What phone do you use?   

    Samsung Galaxy S3 mini. I need a smaller phone to fit in my pocket for cycling.
  2. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: my time to moan !   

    IPS have been more than reasonable in my opinion. I had a perpetual licence but moved a standard licence a few years ago. You have 3 options as far as I can tell:
    Stay on 3.4.7 with what you have.
    Accept the offer from IPS.
    Move to something else.
    10 years in Internet time is a lifetime and essentially that was the lifetime of Invision Power Board. With IPB 4 we have a new product.
  3. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Deleting Members   

    You can do a search of members using the advanced search controls in the ACP . You then have the option to mass prune them. e.g. do a search on banned members.
  4. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Mass Deleteing Spam   

    If you have spam prevention measure in place you won't get any spam. If you're having to delete spam posts you have got adequate anti spam measures in place.
    That said, you can mass delete forum posts and topics by user name.
  5. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Save IP.Gallery in IPS 4.0!   

    I agree with a lot of what you say. Albums are for individual members. Categories are for groups with the appropriate permissions to upload to. This suits my forums. Your pets photos should be a category not an album.
    I now allow members to upload HD resolution images i.e. 1920x1080. Displaying them full screen is a mission and I'm probably the only member of my site that knows how to display an image full size / full screen:
    First you have to click on Options > View all sizes then click on the largest size. That then displays in the same window with scroll bars. if you then click twice on the image you can the image without the forum wrapper. You then have to press F11 to hide the browser toolbars to finally see your image full screen.
    Very cumbersome and not possible to move on to the next image.
    Compare this to Facebook:
    Click on image. You don't get the image full size if it's large but what you get is larger than what IP gallery gives you. To go full screen you click on Options > Enter fullscreen. That's it. Then of course you can click on the left right arrows to view other images. Much slicker than how IP Gallery does it.

    Well if you don't trust your other admins then they shouldn't be admins.
    As I I've said a number of times over the years I think any decent forum is being irresponsible by not having an active service contract. You've then got peace of mind that IPS will fix your forums if something goes wrong.
    Yes I would agree with you if it was publicly visible to anyone but it's not.
  7. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    Good marketing if you ask me. I don't have a problem with it and if you read the bug report you linked to, only admins can see it.
    Re doing it for 3.4. Won't happen since develepoment of the 3.4 series has stopped except for critical security updates.
  8. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Gallery Lightbox - Viewing larger images   

    I agree. The Gallery leaves a lot to be desired and is quite unintuitive to use.
  9. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Upgrade from 3.4.3 to 4.0.0.b4 possible?   

    Are you trying to upgrade a live forum? You shouldn't be. Wait until the final release is out if you are.
  10. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Vague ETA?   

    2015. Is that vague enough?
  11. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Upgrading to 4.0   

    ​Yes.
    When it's ready.
  12. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: IPS 4 is not something I would want   

    ​Cut in half for me as well. They don't look right.
  13. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: IPS 4 is not something I would want   

    Regarding the downloads area, I think it's an improvement and the layour will work better on a range of screen sizes. The current downloads system isn't that good on small screens.
  14. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Why am I getting notifications?   

    ​LOL - Nope.
    Ok at least I'll have an option when upgrading. The last thing that I want is my inbox flooded with emails from all of my previous friends.
  15. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Why am I getting notifications?   

    Thanks. So looks like friends I had before once I upgrade to ver 4 I'm going to automatically be following them. Not what I would call desirable as I'm going to have to unfollow all of them.
