I guess the icons could be made a little smaller...? So they can better fit the screen...? I don't have any issues on my side, but I guess it could be specific to my setup.

 

One thing I would really like, now that I remembered about it, is an option for Indent/Outdent. I guess that would be two options. :))

 

Latest IPS v4.3.5 release includes a CKEditor 4.10 update (aka the WYSIWYG editor). Officially there's no support provided by Invision to expand any buttons. Unofficially? :wink_anim: https://ckeditor.com/cke4/addons/plugins/all

Now with/without ads at InsanelyMac has no much difference.

 

 

Uhm, not to torpedo your folks revenue model, but filtering out ads on a browser level? Is so 2016! Buy a RaspBerryPi and install https://pi-hole.net/ to filter ads out on a DNS level on an entire local home network. Has a HUGE increase in internet speeds (upto 40% less data to retrieve), descrease page loading time , lowering CPU usage, lowers energy, increases battery capacity and increases available RAM (as any and all browser adblockers can be deinstalled). Supports DNSsec for privacy, VPN for on the road. Doesn't just block ads, but any and all telemetry, trackers, coinminers jquery, etc.

 

But as the majority of users use any kind of adblocking solution anyway? It tends to break design too (white gaps and such). Hence it's a broken income model. As explained by the original founders of Netscape: 

 

hence at OSXL we've been working on a whole bunch of blockchain based technologies too towards the future (not the past) of community building revenue models that benefit everybody (instead of being annoying). And as we're all one big community anyway, and we are going to bring those things sooner or later to the invision marketplace. Oh well ... offering my FREE help once again to at least make browsing around IM and site usability great again (including limiting width of including videos; which is default IPS4 feature in the ACP)

P.S. and that offer is only valid for IM, simply got no time to support other IPS4 communities 1on1 :P  
P.P.S. and only at IM; I can find the best AMD Ryzen hackintosh stuff among other great downloads & guidance. :wink_anim:

oh oops included wrong video. And clarifying why I'm being crazy generous ;-)

Are they? It is kinda funny, when IM team was ridiculing us 4 months ago:

As we solved all issues within less than 3 weeks. And did offer my help multiple times already. I'm just 1 PM away, you know. ;) And the amount of ads currently in the IM site? Gee, unlike anything I've seen before.

 

I've been through that thread twice now, and all I can find is words of encouragement and our staff wanting to know when your site would be back online: "Good luck!/The Forum are amazing, congrats for your efforts!/Congrats for all efforts of OSXLatitude crew". That's hardly the ridicule of which you accuse them ;)

 

On a related note, I remember we too had issues with the utf8 converter and a legacy character encoding that littered "?" over our content. @smx was a rockstar and helped me build our own converter that was much more robust at fixing character issues :)

 

Yes, we are working hard fixing things up! We moved servers last week, and the performance has been significantly more reliable than in the past. You can see a really nice downward trend on the site loading time :)

I've also been fixing up several skin issues that were on the TODO list, and have a few ideas percolating on an improved front page. On my current TODO list is to: (1) restore the chat, (2) improve the rules page to be simpler, (3) redesign the homepage, and (4) finish fixing the theme issues

 

From a management perspective, running this site is significantly more complex than your own since we do not own the site. This means until last week we didn't have access to the live server, we can't make revenue/ads changes, can't make large changes without some oversight and overall have significantly less control over our future. We do the best we can given the resources we have, and I do believe we are on the right track going forward :)

 

This site has been through quite the history behind the scenes, and in some ways it's amazing we're still here :p

 

I always appreciate specific actionable feedback :) . I'm not sure about video width embedding - having it resize based on the users monitor seems the most intuitive, although I do have a small screen so they are usually quite narrow and natural. Any recommendation on the width?

      Rules 
      Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use.
      Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community.
      No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately.
      No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents.
      Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM.
      Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted.
      Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative.
      Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion.
      Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
      No advertising or business offers of any kind.
      No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites.
      Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient.
      Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it.
      Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits.
      Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it.
      Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material.
      Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86.
      Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR)  
      Posting Guidelines
      If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.
      Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed.
      Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics.
      All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, use the Code option, etc. Limit "empty lines" as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion.
      Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.
      Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles.
      Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed.
       
      Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
      Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
      To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
      Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?

      They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics.
      Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar.
      Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion.
      Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning.
       
      Policing
      Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin.
      Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also.
      These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit.
      Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be.
      In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.

      Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development.
      These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off):
      1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source.
      2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit.
      3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donations as though he deserves it, even though his products (most notably #####) is a compilation of products/drivers developed by others (not himself) that any non-programmer could put together.
      4. You must pay for the tonymac software. Although this may seem reasonable considering the effort involved in building a customized installer for specific computer builds, again, it is not in the spirit of OSx86 to charge for software development, so the wiser idea would most likely be not to offer that service at all. Even though it may be nice for newbies, in my opinion it does not encourage education but rather laziness. I say this because the OSx86 movement is designed as an educational movement, where by hacking Mac OS X you can learn more about the operating system works, how computers work, etc., like how many of us do. However, the purpose of OSx86 is not a way to get a cheap Mac, which I personally believe is encouraged by tonymac's software considering it is marketed to perform a task without any sort of explanation of how it works.
      From another perspective: http://prasys.info/2011/01/tonymac-seriously/ This covers one of the issues brought up by developers.
