    Thank you @Thomasss it sure has been! Just trying to clear my client workload debt so I can get back to the true work I love to do. Grateful for that kind of problem, but please don't tell my clients I called their websites "debt". :) Wishing you the same good will and you have my full support...

    Staff Ratio?

    I think there is some merit to a staff-to-active-member ratio as I want to be a part of a community that has "organic" content from members like me. The rewording of a lite moderator position to something like "community advocate" is slick as it makes it feel like more of a regular member. I'd...

    Are we becoming more disconnected by Technology

    This has been a battle in my own life, as I'm sure many can relate, and I think the more useful examination to make is how technology has affected the quality of your life. Being connected to technology has been a net positive for humanity for the sheer amount of knowledge that is now available...

    Color schemes

    Have to agree, never really take dark themes seriously and after this thread I made the switch and don't think I will be going back!

    I have gone to great lengths to ensure the frontend features of my product do not use jQuery (or other libraries), and while tough at times it has been a worthwhile pursuit to level up my JavaScript skills and is a performance hit my customers sites do not have to take. ...until they inevitably...

    Mobile First

    This is a great distinction - are there any specific optimizations you've made that have benefited guest registration rate? I currently don't do anything but show a basic banner on mobile encouraging to signup to get customer support.

    Saying hello

    Just to escalate this,h as there ever been an InvisionFree reunion? :D I really am curious to know how many people from that era are still active. Gotta pay homage to the OG's. ? My first thought exactly, hoping @Thomasss can pull off a miracle.

    Killer theme and great content - I had no idea phpBB could work so good!

    Accepted Members recently online vs. currently online

    Fair point, which is why I've cranked mine to 48 hours (heh). With this forum's level of activity I see the odds of it displaying zero extremely low vs. now where it is usually empty.

    Paid Forum Software

    I have noticed my XF forums runs far smoother and without the random database connection errors my IPB forum consistently threw - and I don't even have a large forum. Overall my biggest downer about IPB was how sterile the design looks, and even 4.5 while much improved still gives me that same...

    How do you access

    Flip phone since 2018, though it does have an Internet browser I've never used. ?

    Paid Forum Software

    4.5 looks awesome and I'm still excited for the release - what have you seen that excites you so much to make a statement like that?!

    Accepted Members recently online vs. currently online

    Have you considered using a widget that shows the members who have visited in the last 24 hours over the current "Members Online" widget? You can probably guess the reasons, but for forums without constant activity throughout the day I think this gives a far better impression about user...

    Saying hello

    Thanks for the welcome! Forumer was comparable to InvisionFree (don't get me started here lol) but offered both phpBB and IPB as free hosted software. You could customize skins any way you wanted with the template and style editor, so I would rip forums apart and design completely custom...

    Paid Forum Software

    I have recently converted my IP.Board to XenForo and will never look back. I think IPS has built an incredible platform, but I am only looking for a forum and want to stick to the company who's full attention is on creating the best software for forums.

    Building Premium Themes & Plugins?

    What was the reason they asked for those dependencies? Maybe your theme had some kind of feature overlaps, or they wanted to make you use one of their plugins to be compatible with the marketplace? That's just the negative side of selling on a market like that, you have to give up quite a bit of...
