  1. Are forum communities dead?

    It's hard to believe, but when I registered here I was just shy of 14. I'm almost 28. I'm user #306. These forums were very different back in 2004, and attracted a lot of cool people. Those very people have moved on with their lives (as have I). Forums boomed from 2002 through 2008 because there simple wasn't an alternative. 2009 marked a turning point for many technologies. The financial panic created a "shake out" not just on the Internet, but in the physical world. People looked at budgets and looked at alternative tools. Communities utilizing forum software will always be around, but general forum software is definitely in a bear market. People use Facebook/twitter/reddit for a range of things that used to be individual websites hosting forums. I remember iKonboard and vBulletin 2.x, and thinking how cool those things were. Those days are over, but I still reminisce.  From 1998 through 2008, the tech world was "stable": dominated by IE6 and Microsoft. People viewed the Internet through a browser and conversed using forums. From 2009 through probably 2019, we'll look back and notice the world dominated by a more chaotic mix of Apple/Android devices and desktop experiences. There's much more variety on the Internet today.

  8. CC declined

    I had my bank on the line, and FINALLY got it through. It's definitely not user friendly, but I know IP.Board is the best.. I remember doing work here when I was teenager many, many years ago... And, it's great to know IP.Board is still the better forum software around
  9. CC declined

    Is there any reason on your end why my CC is getting declined? I've called my bank, and they have it set to authorize, but it's still not going through Thanks!

  11. IP.Content vs Portal

    I understand, but can I make sure the portal page is www.domain.com, and my forums are www.domain.com/forums/?
  12. IP.Content vs Portal

    Which software will allow me to have the main page (www.domain.com) as the front page of the site? Is Portal, the free plugin, able to do this? Thanks!
  13. IP.Subscriptions

    Ian, this is fantastic. Thank you!
  14. IP.Subscriptions

    I'd like to post videos in a private, subscription only forum. I looked around, and it appears IP.Subscriptions can do this. Is there any documentation or demo of this plugin? Thanks for any help. I plan to use paypal.
  15. IP.Board in iPAD

    The nice rhing about the iPad is you don't need many apps... I wish it was 12-inch because the screen shrinks webpages 10% or so to fit the 1024x768 resolution.
