    ​ @CheersnGears Thank you.
    This is where I was heading until I let my personal views over ride my train of thought.... There are more than a few here that @Lindy speaks of that would rather keep quiet and not take a chance getting mocked or upsetting the apple cart where they have posted their preferences in other topics. Instead they got the "Show Me a reason" line from non IPS personnel. And in other cases  their views were called "Rants" So they backed down. But those I got the biggest kick out of were those who turned when the boat started to rock a little. Stopping here personal views are trying to take over again.
    As far as Development goes Friends feature was already in place there was nothing to add. And again worked awesome for those who knew how to make it work. For those who didn't take the time to understand it, sure it was added bloat. Now you have something new called Followers not even nearly the same in in context or functionality let alone security. What may be great for every 10 people may be a downfall for the next 2 or 3.... Personally I think those odds suck crab water.
     Damn here I am thinking personal gain.

    ​I get the same in Fire Fox.... In IE the pages just time out giving me the "Page Can't be found" page... This has been going on the last 2 or so weeks...

    This is where it is nice for me at the moment. One of the TWC offices is one block behind me as the crow flies. When I would lose internet I also lost my phone.... It got to the point where now they jump when they see me coming. Though I try to keep things quiet there are always other customers standing around that overhear whats going on.... TWC don't like that part. Now they have me on 2 modems. 1 for internet and the other for phone service.

    Good for you!
    Had simular issues a few years ago with AT&T Uverse.... Rain and wind would knock everything out.... Kept telling them it was aerial and the still insisted on looking at my interface, inside wiring and their interface up at my driveway. Finally after blowing a gasket on one of their supervisors they sent a team out with a line supervisor... I told her to quit looking for the problem in the house or any other contained unit the issue is Aerial. Here again I blew... Told her my credentials as an electrician and hers and the rest of their theory didn't cut the mustard.... Finally she sent a guy up to the boot that I said was the problem. She was hell bent to prove me wrong. Well 3 cans of hornet spray later the line tech came down to have her order a new block. The one in the boot had been destroyed. They temped in what they could at that point and the following week they were up replacing everyones line that came from that boot that had no issues.... But like you they kept replacing crap and I kept telling them to quit wasting my time.... Go to the boot.... Again Key Words Rain and Wind. Come to think of it. I don't think I was the one eating crow that day.... Now I am having issues with my cable provider.... They also have a cable mess to figure out with business and residential getting mixed up... So they say. Personally I think it is an overload. To many subscribers sharing one line.

    ​A farmrer up north may have agreed with you 2 years ago when I went to pass him..... snapped the crank clean right behind the harmonic ballancer.... Not a pretty site.... Front journal was sitting here... here... and there on the road... Had a mechanic up there find and replace the engine.... But after Dennis's uncle dropped the pan to make sure it was a good one. No crud, no grime but most of all no metal or weak chevy parts....

    I have been getting slow reaction and time outs as well. But upon other investigation and factors involved with other websites related to forums as well as non related. My personal issues seem to occure at certain times of the day and days of the week. The issues I experience have been brought to my cable provider. It seems they have a few business and residential lines flipped. Now could this be another possibility for some? This would depend on a single site vs the multiple. Another thing to concsider if you are a cable subscriber is time of day and community in which you live because that also will factor in as load. Another way to test this is to take speed tests using a few different test sites durring your good, better and bad times of the day or week. If they show any consistancy again report it to your cable provider...

    ​OK then I have no cause to be offended.
    ​Funny I am the only one who has made it known of my feelings for the word. And again I will not discuss that here though there are a few people (friends) here as IPS Clients and members that know my reasons. But if you really must know find and ask them.
    As I will say again if you prefer the word follower so be it. Its no sweat off my back. But like so many others before you don't try and shove it down my throat I won't swollow.

    ​If you have a need to quote me use the complete statement please.
    The only thing I admit to is my hatred for a word and the spam it has brought.
  11. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Followers Are Superior To Friends   

    ​The friend system when set up correctly didn't allow for just following others content only. I myself turned off quite a few of the features that did not apply or less important to my use. Members for example was a bloated tab that I didn't find very useful where others did and do to this day. IPS did remove it which was a good thing for some but yet there are those who still have a need due to the theme of their boards which is understandable. Whereas Friends in the way I used it was a perfect quick reference contact list system. Since I first got into the forum scene I have made many friends where yes this system kept us in the loop on other functions other than forums... There have been a few times a few of us got together fishing, hunting as well as family outings. A short list in comparison to a members. Friends a simple system used instead for a contact system is / was a simple tool to cut the fat. Then there is the word followers that I despise to no end for reasons I don't need bring here.
    So from here to answer your question... Which is most is better than the other? That will depend on those using the term or system and also for what purpose. Just like members.

    ​Damn That puts us both over the Hill. And I thought I had time for one last mountain.
    ​Don't you just hate insubordination?
  15. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 (updated)   



    ​CaptJeff is there some purpose that I missed here about the topic at hand? Just incase it has to do with upgrading a forum test board to IPS 4.0 betas and RC's not skins paid or free. You may want to look in the marketplace for that information.
     
     Not to be blunt but did I not explain clearly about removal and disabling skins and mods? If not let me know where I am unclear and I will do a rewrite. As far as this article goes it is written as a 3rd party "How To" article for those willing to take the time attempting a first hand test upgrade at this point.
