  1. Community Expert One is the email invitation and the other is what it looks like in the forums. (Ignore what Ehren is talking about. A user was asking about the layout of the staff page. The key thing is the new community experts follow button.)
  2. Congrats! That's huge. What does it look like?
  3. Is your community stuck in a rut and not engaging? Jono Bacon dives into 5 reasons why and the practical steps to fix them
  4. By the way I foudn this as a (paid) Cloudflare service: https://developers.cloudflare.com/support/more-dashboard-apps/cloudflare-stream/delivering-videos-with-cloudflare/
  5. You would be serving from BackBlaze via your Cloudflare proxy exactly as you mentioned. But if you're using Cloudflare as a proxy on any plan except the enterprise , Cloudflare will impose a 100 MB upload limit. I've reinforced this limit in my community (by capping download files at 100 MB, for example). https://community.cloudflare.com/t/upload-size/386443 In terms of the user experience, just be aware that your IPS system will be downloading the entirety of that file of 3 GB and 4 GB. It's not seamless video streaming with fancy multi-encoding, variable bitrate, etc. It's a simple file downsize to the user's browser, as in, the user must download the full 3 GBs before it will start playing. IPS is not a video delivery system. It's a file system of simple uploads and downloads. Just want to be very clear about that.
  6. In any ecosystem, there is an equilibrium that is naturally achieved when left to it's own. The same applies to a community. When left by itself, what is the natural state of your community? Does the community tend to have too much of a certain kind of conversation? Does it have enough conversation and content to be self sustaining? Part of the role of a community manager is to nudge the community's equilibrium in the right direction, until the community can achieve its equilibrium on its own.
  7. Profile Notice new navigation elements of horizontal scrolling (I'm on desktop with a resized window, so it's not a perfect replacement, but you should get the point) Profile .webm
  8. Account Settings > Content Preferences More options than ever before for each user to choose, especially for the new Forum Index view and Topic View
  9. Pages is one of the thing IPS is keeping mum about so far. No news about Pages at all, and it's not something we can test on the alpha. I also heard that they will be rolling Blogs into Pages, so I'm looking forward to that change too. From what I can tell of the other apps, they seem to work and function exactly like before. Gallery, Downloads, Calendar, Clubs, etc.
  10. Yes I will! In the meantime, you can check out my post in the IPS community with several screenshots: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/477839-invision-community-5-alpha-first-look/
  11. I've been given a sneak peek at Alpha for the last few days. 1. IPS has done a good job already talking about new features in the company blog. Some of the biggest changes that you can't help but notice are: Dark Mode, Card View, and the Vertical Menu. 2. The default theme feels fast. Like, super fast. The flyouts of the menus, switching between sections, everything feels zippy. 3. IPS is saving some juicy, juicy tidbits. The new editor. Page builder. None of us have been able to play with the new page builder, but if you've struggled with building a landing page of different designs, this should be a game changer. The new editor looks and feels very familiar, even if it's built in something totally different. No other forum provider has a robust set of tools to build pages like IPS, and I think the new Page Builder in 5 will continue to differentiate IPS as a site builder around your community.
