    Nobody gets a free copy as far as I'm aware. It's a commercial product. A mod developer can make money by selling mods, so should in turn pay for the software to base their mods on.

    Messenger permissions - restrict the use of messenger on a per group basis
    Re my post here;

    I have a use case for this that I cannot believe, for one second, is unique to me. As the permissions stand now, it appears I cannot prevent certain groups from using the messenger. Previously this could be restricted on a per group basis. In my case, I don't want new users having immediate access to the messenger as it's a route for potential abuse and spam. This becomes even more important if a member is banned. Currently they simply re-register and immediately get access to the messenger, even if their forum posting rights are restricted.
    Please reintroduce the ability to prevent user groups from accessing the messenger.

    After you have purchased your licence it will allow you to download either 3.4.8 or 4.

    Interesting. Please elaborate.

    Well, yes.

    That doesn't solve his initial gripe though. He doesn't want his admins or mods to see the notice at all. Removing it/limiting it would be the only solution.

    Actually I don't think it's covered.
    modify and/or remove any copyright notices or labels on the Software on each page (unless copyright output removal license is purchased) and in the header of each script source fileThat's from the EULA. I'm not showing anybody how to remove anything from the header of each script source file nor how to remove the copyright notices. I'm only showing them how to remove a reminder visible only to the admins.
    I certainly don't mind being wrong though and have, erring on the side of caution, removed the instruction.

    Interesting.
    I'll take it down but I don't think it can be reasonably justified that it breaches the EULA. It's a front end display to a limited set of users, thus there is no detrimental impact to IPS of it being removed by individual admins. I wouldn't condone anything that removes the actual copyright.

    How is removing a reminder breaching the licence? I'm not removing the copyright, nor anything related to the licence check itself. It's just a front end display.
    I'll remove it if staff tell me to.

    I'd just code it out then. Some of us do like the warning. It's a lot easier to remove than it is to add back in.
  12. Evil Edwina added a post in a topic How to get more members interested   

    My advice is to take it back to basics. Look at your site as if you had never seen it before as ask yourself these questions;
    What's so interesting about the site that you'd want to register?Why would you want to register on your site over, say... Facebook?What need is your site fulfilling that can't be, or isn't already being, fulfilled elsewhere?The main mistake I see, and have made myself many times, is trying to compete in a world where there are already established websites, social groups, forums, clubs, etc., and you'll always face an uphill battle.
    I've had the most success with smaller niche member bases than I have large ones. I only once had a large forum with c350,000 members, but that was before the days of Facebook. I also catered to a specific audience for which there were no other comparable resources.

    It's just perfect for that kind of application.
