Re: IOVO - a threat to the current internet?

The cause and idea is very good. Why let companies earn billions with YOUR data, knowledge and information?! BUT, people are already so used to getting everything for free that this wont work in any way. Newspapers are trying to convert from paper to paid online-subscriptions and that wont work eith...

Re: IOVO - a threat to the current internet?

As long as FB-users think FB is the internet we dont have to worry about anything but humanity.

Re: Are Facebook, VK and other social nets killing your forums?

The problem is as you stated ... VERY many today dont know anything outside FB. For them: FB = internet. They dont need and use anything else.

But now some companies are moving away from FB, that might make the difference soon.

Reactions

Hi there! I am using Discord and it has a beautiful thing called reactions. With reactions you can add an emoji (or several) under each post, anyone "thinking the same" can confirm by clicking those icons (counter +1 for each icon clicked) or can add own icons/reactions. With this system you can do ...

Re: Tapatalk?

I just read on another topic that soft deleted messages can be read via Tapatalk. As much as I have strongly disliked Tapatalk from day 1, I did not want to believe that. But it is true... :evil: Posting at their support forum is a waste of time for something like this. At least that has been my ex...

Re: Images Hijacked by Photobucket?

You still have the problem that archive.org is an external resource. Maybe sometime some gov will decide that it is not allowed for archive.org to archive everything. I mean, how are they allowed to copy all images and texts? What about existing copyrights? So, you might end up with dead links to ar...

Re: Let's make phpBB look cleaner

I have to give the OP cudos. Over the 15 years running our phpBB-forum we have tweaked almost everything (more or less) in the style based on user-feedback. But you have to remember, when pleasing one group of members the other group will say it was better the old way. So you have to alter the looks...

Re: Are Facebook, VK and other social nets killing your forums?

Re: Create permission for non-moderator users to delete own topics
