    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

    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...

How this (=what happens nowadays) can be called regular? Its been 2013. We currently have 2020. SEVEN YEARS ON and...

    Why is there so much vB hate?

    I can't help but notice how many times I've browsed this forum only to read how terrible vB software is. Let's say (hypothetically) that is it, why is it always a repeating campaign theme on this website? @TheChiro mentioned: If the majority have moved on, why do people still complain? It's...

    Upcoming Facebook Changes

    I know a few here use FB as part of their overall forum structure (as well as some having active FB groups). An author friend of mine was at the recent Developer Conference, where Mark Zuckerberg discussed and shared the upcoming intentions they have. She was good enough to post a video in an...

    Looks like some people are trying to be overnight millionaires selling Xenforo 2 mods!

    Looks like some people are trying to be overnight millionaires selling Xenforo 2 mods! And I know that something is only worth what people are willing to pay for it. But some of these mods have insane pricetags attached to them. Its no wonder why people are not in a hurry to upgrade to Xenforo 2!
