  1. Upgrade Now Front End Message

    As far as I am aware it's only visible to Administrators. See:  
  2. Sharing on Tumblr

    Mm. According to: You are indeed correct. My apologies. EDIT: If you go to System > Site Promotion > Sharing; can you not manually add it yourself? EDIT 2: No apparently, not.
  3. Sharing on Tumblr

    Whilst the difference isn't actually that much, your assertion can be disproven - Source:
  4. It's a good suggestion; but on mine it already comes with a domain:
  5. This is something I'm partly interested in too; because it does appear to show for staff - but not users. So it's definitely there, the users wouldn't need to view the details of the warning(s) just a brief overview if possible like the title of the infraction given or something.
  6. Page Load Progress Animation

    I love this this modification and I thank @Makoto for updating it for IPS 4. Once again they never fail and I am not disappointed at all. It's very useful to see when the page is communicating with the server, a visual indicator that there is something loading. I love that bouncing ball animation. xD5/5 - Makoto has a new fan.
  7. Account Deactivation

    Brought the app. Got a message from Makoto thanking me, and offering help if I ran into problems. Me being me; I ran into problems which Makoto fixed (Monkey Error, as in a misconfiguration I made) the issue within minutes. Their support is top class and they're very friendly to boot. I actually feel like a valued customer.  I fully recommend this app to other people if you're looking at giving members more control over their account. Giving members the control to deactivate an account was a trick I felt IPS had missed, this is a very useful application and I couldn't be happier. $35 well spent in my honest opinion. Big thanks to Makoto! 
  8. Why does the Invision Power logo looks like a V? 10 years ago. xPI remember a modification on the marketplace for IPB2 or early IPB3 (Can't remember) that basically allowed certain usergroups access to email from the site, I can't for the life of me find it though.Edit: Yeah here it is - 
  9. Question I'd ask is how many of those 4,100 members actually converted to members that were active. Getting double the amount of members who fall inactive instantly is still nothing substantial. 
  10. Image proxy

    Could be something in IPS itself when a site is using https? Something similar to: 
  11. URL Change 15$

    ​That's completely blowing it out of proportion, oh and congratz on necro'ing a dead thread. I'm willing to bet that the majority of IPS's customers don't change their domain name every week; so how this is "Controlling the masses" and why does this need to change? What because you say so?
  12. Favorite Browser?

    Google Chrome as primary. Firefox as secondary. IE when I am using the British Gas home topup for my Pay&Go meter. Because for some reason British Gas only supports IE (and even then only certain versions of it). 
  13. I have learnt more about MySQL and PHP from IPS4 than I have from anything else, ever. :D

  14. So IPB4 deletes users accounts without warning?

    ​In the converter (the thing we had to run before upgrading) I did select utf8mb4_unicoode_ci. For some reason the converter didn't work properly. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say @Dorian Gray used the UTF8 converter before updating from 3.4.x to 4.0.x which would make sense because we had to. I have no idea if s/he used utf8mb4_unicoode_ci or utf8_unicoode_ci but I know for sure I picked the former, definitely not the latter - because it was conscious decision that had to be debated with my fellow administrators for our site. For example:utf8mb4_unicoode_ci: Slower Speed + Emoji Support <--- Which we wantedutf8_unicoode_ci: Faster Speed + No Emoji SupportMy guess is for whatever reason the converter failed, and whilst I did make a backup; I did the conversion way before Christmas and I was only told to back up incase it didn't work and after it did work I wouldn't need the backup. If this is a bug that was fixed in the converter that I will need to convert my old database again I'd be rolling back to before September 2014; which is unacceptable, or... I can restart my forums which is outrageously unacceptable. My only choice is to hope that the converter can do it properly or manually change the types and collations myself; or wait and see if IPS can suggest anything better.I sort of did this whilst I was waiting, in the hopes that it could help locate and track down where the problem was and what was causing it. I also tried to see in what circumstance would it cause one's account to be deleted; I can't answer that because I don't know. I wasn't able to get an account to be deleted, just their username.Edit:A fresh install has all tables set to utf8mb4_unicode_ci and the display name table is set to varchar(255) utf8mb4_unicode_ci not blob utf8mb4_unicode_ci which didn't work for me when I played around with it yesterday from a converted one.  I should have known it wasn't that simple. 
  15. So IPB4 deletes users accounts without warning?

    Okay; yep. It seems to be upgraded installations that it's reproducible on. I wonder if this is why it couldn't be reproduced by staff...This happened after setting username to: ?A UsernameIt still didn't "Delete" the account though, so I suspect (and hope) the account is still there, somewhere, Dorian. I have my fingers crossed for you.BUT... I had a look at my database; more specifically Collation's. Take a peak at this noise:Now I would like to say Collation doesn't imply causation... xPBut then I remembered what @Ralf H. said earlier:​An emoji is a 4byte character, right? So I looked into it and found that it was utf8_unicode_ci which I changed to utf8mb4_unicoode_ci. This didn't fix it, and I found that the actual name was also stuck on this collation, so I changed that to utf8mb4_unicoode_ci and all. This didn't work either. But silly me, it's also varchar(255) -> Which I changed to BLOB, (As a type)... Low and behold:Fixed it.
