  • Quote from Paul: “Quote from Sin: “Feel free to pop in I am working with another community who is possibly considering shutting the doors down....they are closer to your age(35 and up) and what not but they have younger members as well. If I wind up acquiring it, i haven't decided if i wish to consolidate the two forums(hasn't worked out well in the past for me) or keep em separate ha! ” Please let us know. I would be happy to join any forum of yours, Sin, that has some members in my age range. …

  • Quote from alakazam: “Quote from Paul: “Quote from alakazam: “Why aren't any of you joining it though? ” I'm 2-3 times older than most of the members there. ” OMG, Paul, not this ageism thing again... ” You shouldn't be concerned about a forum you are banned from Quote from Paul: “Quote from alakazam: “Why aren't any of you joining it though? ” I'm 2-3 times older than most of the members there. ” Feel free to pop in I am working with another community who is possibly considering shutting the do…

  • Quote from Paul: “I like the new style, @Sin! It makes viewing the content much easier on my old eyes. ” Quote from Anubis: “Indeed. I just checked it out and it's so much better ” Ha that's actually an accident as you aren't supposed to see it But thank you, I am glad you are able to view it better! I'll be keeping it in mind for the next theme we buy to buy something a bit more solid. IPSFocus - IPS Theme - Brave Is what I am looking at now.

  • Quote from Paul: “@Sin, this has been brought up on the WoltLab forums and it might be going away. I personally don't know why people get so worked up over it. ” Because it's annoying. IPB nor Xenforo do this. You are effectively alerting me of the same notification twice. Now imagine having literally a bunch of notifications, half of which are dupes. It makes a lot of sense why it is annoying tbh

  • Quote from GTB: “Quote from Sin: “It is smooth and fast for the most part and it has a brilliant notification system ” What is so great about the notification system in XF. It has to be one the worst I've ever used, being serious too. You get an alert that there are maybe 5 alerts to read. When you click it to show them, then click first one. All the others are gone from it that you've not yet read.. and then have to go to the main alerts page checking them. It sucks for using and tends to auto …

  • Why if I am following a thread (Which having this on by default is super annoying as crap tbh...I hate it in xenforo as well) does it send me a notification o Paul replying to the thread and then a notification of Paul quoting me? Literally it is the same thing and annoys the crap out of me.

    Quote from Allan: “I think that staff needs improving but I wouldn't not use the software because of that. ” I feel staff are a big example of what I am buying into. If the staff sucks, it is going to make the atmosphere crappy and it makes me want to look at products of the people I do support. After all, I am giving Xenforo my cash. If I flat out hate them I don't want them to profit of me

  • Quote from meetdilip: “Personally, I think IPS share is not increasing. I see less IPS forums on Google. Believe me, I Google a lot. ” Gotta disagree...I've across many IPB forums I've not noticed before as of late. Pleasant surprise. If we follow a certain 'admin forums' cookie tracker thread, their marketshare isn't exactly skyrocketing nor plummeting so it's neutral at worse. Quote from Paul: “Quote from Sin: “I am loving the teases we are getting for 4.2 ” What's coming in 4.2 that currently…

    Quote from Anubis: “Nope. I said that including a free, fully integrated, and stand-alone CMS is. Maybe my wording wasn't exact, but that's the meaning I wanted to convey and the one you should take out of that exchange. I agree that free per se isn't innovative, but since I haven't seen any other scripts including such feature at no cost, I'd say that is as you say "lovely and all." See? your wording is even better ” Noted that being said, if I need a CMS I don't mind paying for IP content(or p…

    Quote from Anubis: “And innovative as that when it comes to forum scripts, considering that a full and stand-alone CMS isn't a small thing, and big names never really integrated it the way WBB plans to. Besides, good marketing is what WBB needs the most at the moment. A free and standalone CMS is more than a mere "scheme" to win new customers in my view. It's something current WBB's customers will take great advantage of, since they have asked for it a long while ago. ” And that is lovely and al…

    That is precisely why I cant stand Xenforo. The arrogance that community, it's developers, staff, and userbase give off is sickening

    Quote from Anubis: “Quote from Sin: “In the end, WBB needs to innovative...instead of just being comparable. ” The 4.2 version will include a standalone and free CMS. I consider the idea pretty innovative. We will see how it will be implemented once it's released. ” Free is not innovative. It's merely a marketing scheme.

    Quote from GTB: “Quote from alakazam: “I disagree. Their software is too expensive for what it can do. ” I would disagree with that. XenForo is more or less double the price of WBB and doesn't have more features than it, they have about same. WBB is the cheapest of the 4 commercial forum products out there to buy. IPB, [lexicon]vBulletin[/lexicon], XenForo are all far more expensive to buy at first. And none of them other 3 (as a forum only deal) offer much more than WBB, in some cases they offe…

  • In all honesty the Adminition name seems to be a bit catchier than admin-hub But I am glad to see all has went well <3 @Paul But is @Allan still staff here?

  • Quote from Paul: “Quote from AnnaMarine: “Waiting to see new content and more members. I'm one of those who knew nothing of Adminition.com. ” I'm trying the import on a test site now and I'm running into a few problems. Hopefully I will have this figured out by tomorrow. Adminition.com shared many of the same users and it was an admin forum as well with about the same number of posts that Admin-Hub has now (it actually had slightly more). After the merge is complete it will take me a little whil…

  • Quote from Allan: “No worries @alakazam I will still be active on here, no need for the sad face. ” Allan you are a great guy as is @Paul so I am happy for you both

  • Quote from Allan: “I tell people all the time to start off with something small and work your way up, or make sure all the boards have posts in them and none are left empty. ” Oh god yes. I hate having forums with empty posts and I like to go through and make sure that they have been posted in fairly recently as to not make it look so deadish

  • Quote from Paul: “Maybe they are both doing well because they use IPS 4? They are both GD forums but they do have a main focus, which would be literature and YouTube. ” I wish I could say it was IPB4 but I think it is just because I honestly got lucky...I cant actually replicate whatever it is I did with Akylos on other projects I think that is what is necessary for many General Discussion forums. It is okay to be general but have a focus. In a world of forums where there are so many general dis…

  • @Paul @GTB Yes this is the one and only Chaos Reads (though keep in mind you know it as Chaos reads but it actually had other names before that lol) In reality, that was me making noob admin mistakes. I hated the names of the past and got bored with them. I know it is silly and stupid of me Akylos became the name back in 2014 and it stuck until 2015 around December when I changed it to revolucix as I was going to take the site in a different direction but I decided to put that on the back burner…
