    Actually I meant what I said. Not all companies are good at listening to their customers, particularly when criticism is involved. We are not perfect, but I have seen a lot worse.

    You should learn everything from your customers! Have you meant "our competitors" Steve?

    No, but my understanding is that IPB is not nearly as tolerant of posts about vB on their forums. For instance if some of the IPB defenders that automatically and consistently come to the defense of IPB on these forums did the same thing in the IPB forums in defense of vB, I have reason to believe their posts and possibly posting privileges wouldn't last long.

    Nonetheless as our record shows we are not afraid of comparisons and a reasonable discussion of features. We actually believe that we can learn something from our customers.

    Thing is though, I do use vBulletin, I use both. So the comment about switching to vB from IPB from Zack is neither here nor there to me. I own both and use both!

    Honestly, if you're complaining that IPS has too much advertising within their products (which can be changed, perhaps not easily, but changed nonetheless), then maybe you shouldn't run a bulletin board at all. I don't see what makes vB any "better," per se, last I checked, there is a lot of self-promotion of Jelsoft within the ACP, as well.
    lol

    While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another bulletin board' threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.

    I'm not picking on the guy, I'm just merely pointing that many of the points he mentioned regarding IPB can also be applied to SMF, vB, phpBB, etc. Of course he's entitled to his opinion, and what he says about the meta tags are true, it's just that I feel a lot of times on this board discussion about other bulletin boards tends to get excessively negative. (This happens on a lot of Linux boards too when discussing Windows.)

    My cousin recently switched one of the boards to IPB and spent sometime modifying things to change the ALT tag and a few other things. IT would be nice if it was made easier to change like in vB.

    I got my Meta Tag hack for my board from a well known IPB modding site, and it works great and was easy to install to add meta tags globally on all pages, gallery, blog, download manager, the lot.

    And it's all admin cp controlled, it even lets you add other meta tags like author or whatever. So, maybe they should use that hack and make it a default feature.

    If you mean IPB 2.3 version, aready used it and it doesn't have that option to use Meta Tags.
