    IPS: Your passion will cost $1068 per year. And you won't be even be a pro. That's a more expensive plan. You're just the cheap passionate.

    The Pro plan costs $1788 per year. The main upgrade for paying the extra $720 is seeing who is typing back to you about your passion all year. If you have the passion but don't care about who is talking (because, like, maybe your passion is boring and nobody is actually visiting), that's...

    Woltlab Attempting to Milk New Branding Free Customers

    I've been out of the admin scene for about 5 years now, but I recently came back as I'm planning on launching a new forum. My options for software were XenForo and Woltlab, and one thing that I was planning on getting eventually was the Branding Free option. After taking a closer look at both...

    XenForo revokes KiwiFarms' license

    I was browsing XenForo.com today and came across this thread about KiwiFarms' XF license being revoked. For those who aren't aware, KiwiFarms is a site that documents internet drama and "lolcows" (people are so crazy or who react so over-the-top to being trolled that they can be milked for...

    XenForo 1.5: PHP 7.3 EOL in Dec 6, 2021

    Hello guys, As you know, many forum owners are still on XenForo 1.5. Personally, I do not see the point on upgrading to XenForo 2: nothing innovate, nothing new - they are just trying to push their Cloud solution and XF 2.3 seems like an abandoned project (IMHO). As you know, XenForo 1.5 is...

    Is xf stuff planning to maintain order in their Resorce Manager&third party coders? Learn from Ipb Marketplace

    I wanted to start this thread over at the xenforo forum, but after some considerations I thought it would be better suited here. Hopefully the admin zone staff will not censor it. That being said, the Resource Manager is a complete mess over there. Anyone and their mother can submit...

    Why do people still hate vBulletin 5

    I was wondering why do people hate vb5? I understand when it first came out it was slow and very buggy But in the years since then its gotten ALOT better and loads a lot faster, and most bugs have gone, It feels a lot more polished now, but people are still recommending not to upgrade to vB5..

    Censorship

    First point: that is apparently your 6,666th post. Second point: That sounds interesting, but there's a very big "but" that would keep me from trying it. You would have no real control, ownership or authority over your own data and user rules. I used to participate in Xenforo's own forum, a...

    Free Speech Hosts? .. or at least one with a little backbone

    I'm big on free speech and I like to run my forums that way as well. I don't feel its my right, or job, to tell my members, you or Anybody what they can/can't believe in. I 1000% don't believe you should be silenced for discussing your thoughts. I have a bitter Karen out there that stalks my...

    Price hike, no more ticket support - enough signals from Invision

    The announcement of a price hike combined with no more ticket support is reason enough for me to reconsider my strategy. I rarely need ticket support, I usually solve the problems myself. But having no ticket support for a software is simply a no-go for me. And having a newsletter that tries to...

    What do you think of the BigTech Crackdown

    What do you think of the BigTech Crackdown (Don't get political) But Amazon removing their web hosting from Parler is really bad (with 2 days notice) And I have heard of a domain name company removing the domain name of a gun club This is scary stuff that could affect any of us

    Pay more get less. Thats IPS new business model since version 4.5. Some of you probably already know but i have not been using IPS for quite some time. Well i decided to start a new website in 2021 and found that IPS is the best software for the job. Xenforo is also very nice but for this...

    Why there is so much animosity about IPB on TAZ?

    This is something that I have noticed for a long time btw. I was wondering as to why is that? It looks like Taz is playing favorites here by placing xf over all the other forums. Should someone not prise xf here, they get muted and even banned in some cases. Whereas if people go over board by...

    After 10 years, I'm done with IPS

    The direction in which Invision has decided to take with their software has left me with no other option but to seek other venues unfortunately. I will most likely be switching over to Xenforo because of the availability of support and access to 3rd party developers. With the recent changes at...

    Reddit, a $500M company, seem to be soliciting free translations for their internationalisation

    I just came across this. It seems like Reddit are trying to solicit free translation work from their users as a part of their efforts to internationalise and populate their software phrase system. As a result, it seems like many of the volunteers are teenagers looking to contribute. Some as...

    Forums in controversial niches

    I'm considering starting a forum in a niche that could potentially be controversial. The main topic would be one thing which in itself should be uncontroversial, but it skates along the edge of topics that will undoubtedly attract trolls and shouty type people. Should I bother? What is your...
