Because these resources are code checked at time of submission, required to maintain compatibility, and required to show compatibility. The fact that our Marketplace has a comparable number of third party mods that are compatible (or near compatible) to the latest version is a testament to the strength of the third party community. It means that our Marketplace sheds the hobbyist and non-serious devs who try to upload plugins "for fun" but who ultimately harm the client base. As everyone knows, depending on third party developers is always a risky proposition and anything you can do to work with trusted developers is always an important consideration. When you buy into the software, you're also buying into the community. mysiteguy I'm sorry that you had a truly horrible experience and it sounds like you're carrying around that anger. I invite you to start a conversation with me that I can escalate to IPS Management to review their policies, especially around the access of data in cloud. With that said, I'd like to clarify some statements that are factually inaccurate. Clients are allowed to change their domains for free within a certain time frame. They do, however, have a policy against domain hopping that abuses a single license. The cost of cloud hosting is also cheaper when you incorporate factors like server administration. Too many people look at the IPS cloud offering and try to make a direct comparison to a discounted server from GoDaddy. If you pay for just one hour of server administration per month at $100 USD, then you can start to see the hidden cost of private servers. we_are_borg Thank you for taking the time to share your story with us. In the future, I invite you to spend some time with Invision Community to fully and deeply evaluate the best option on behalf of your clients. There are some first-party features in the suite that would have been standout additions for your client: - Clubs - you can create five different kinds like open or private clubs with unlimited custom fields, geomapping, and club management like club leaders and moderarors. Each club can contain the same apps of the main community like forums, gallery, downloads. You can also show the club content in the rest of the community. - Social Media Promotion - not just social sign in, this is where admins can integrate and push viral-worthy content to Facebook pages and Twitter. You can queue up a backlog of items on a schedule to ensure a steady drip of community content.
