  1. I deleted a recent thread regarding the quality of parts from one of the larger mopar specific parts suppliers. This was done for several reasons after being contacted directly by the vendor. First, several statements were made about the vendor by members who had never done any business with them. So they were expressing opinions not based on any first hand knowledge of the subject. This is not acceptable. Second, the original poster assumed the vendor would not be willing to work with him in resolving the issue. These types of situations are often resolved with a single phone call even after a lengthy time period. The mopar community and it's supporting vendors are a small group and it's to the benefit of the vendor to have the opportunity to try and fix the issue. As others noted in the thread we don't have a lot of alternative vendors like the Chevy and Ford guys. Giving vendors constructive feedback on needed product improvements will often result in better products. If not your other choice is heading to the boneyard and getting lucky. So just a couple guidelines before going off on a rant: If you have an issue with a vendor, contact them directly to see if you can come to an agreeable resolution. If you don't have first hand knowledge, don't pile on with opinions based on stuff "you heard". Realize your unsupported claims/comments could put you in a position for legal action for libel. (It also potentially exposes me as site owner) Lastly, when a vendor does the right thing, share that experience also. I learned a long time ago having an issue with a customer at some point in time is just doing business. It's how those differences are resolved that determines how the vendor should be judged.

  9. As IPS gets closer to releasing a major upgrade they are rolling out info about new features. One of interest is a new "Club" feature, basically a way for members to join a specific group. We have talked about splitting up the forums in to different sub forums like W,B and C Series but my concern is the site then gets too complex to easily navigate and search. Clubs look like an easy way to set up a common interest group without having to restructure the entire site. They are opt in and will have a moderator. Let me know what you think, what groups you would like to see and if interested in becoming a moderator for a certain group. You can read about it here: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/new-clubs-r1017

    Time for everyone to step back from their keyboards for a bit. Remember it's just a forum about old cars, so lets keep some perspective by not assuming.
  11. Make sure the email address you have associated with your account settings (under your user name) is correct and valid. Everyday I get 20-30 email bounces from members trying to contact other members and their emails are returned undelivered because of incorrect email addresses.
  12. Should start around 10:00 am PST and run around 30 minutes. From IPS:Version 4.1.16.1 of the IPS Community Suite is now available. This release resolves intermittent issues submitting a reply or seeing CSRF errors. Also included: 4.1.16 In addition to many small bug fixes, this release includes: Large number of bugs fixed in focus areas: Commerce, Pages databases, and IPS Connect Performance improvements in: profile view, sitemap generator, posting replies, and Activity Streams We now try to more reliably detect the AWS S3 endpoint for those using S3 file storage More efficient license key checking to keep the keys from being checked too often which can slow your site down There is now a column in tasks view to show the last time it ran to help diagnostics When a member changes their email or password they now get an email confirmation If group promotion based on date is enable the system will now auto-promote even if a member does not login There is now a setting to change the number of topics per page in the forum view If you move your site to a new URL you no longer have to update a constant if using the image proxy You can now press ctrl/cmd+enter in any editor window to submit the reply In Commerce ticket view there are keyboard shortcuts to perform common actions (such as press 'r' to open reply box or 'n' for note) There is now logic to prevent double-posting when the initial post encounters an error on submit Moderators can now remove all followers from an item Contact Us is now configurable with various options Announcements can now be restricted by member group Admins now have a setting to have members automatically follow content they start or reply to. Members can optionally override this. The editor will now show a message if a link that can be embedded (image, video, etc.) failed to embed for some reason. Admins get more detailed error reasons. If your datastore (cache system) is not working properly the AdminCP will now show you a warning telling you that it needs attention. When a member is banned/suspended the system now shows a more friendly page with information on their ban. Previously it showed a permission denied page.
