IPS, or "Invision Power Software," is the software platform that we use to run the forum. Yesterday I upgraded from version 4.2.9 (the latest in a series of small updates) to the feature-filled 4.3 version. This update has been in the works since the start of 2018, and is finally here and in early tests delivers what it says it will. Some of the best features are for admins and mods, but for you folks - the users and members - here are the features you will notice and want to use: Automatic Content Moderation (Link) This feature lets members hide content that's either inappropriate or spam. If enough members report the post as "inappropriate" (i.e. someone calling someone else names and behaving very poorly) or "spam" (obvious), the content will be hidden and moderators will be notified. Members with a reputation of > 72 need more reports for their content to be automatically hidden. Emoji Support (Link) In addition to the emoji we used to have (like and and and ), we now have access to the full range of normal emoji, like 🤦🏼♂️ and 🗑️ and ✈️ and anything else. To type an emoji, just type it… or… just type a colon and then start typing the word. For example, for a facepalm, type : and then "face" like this: :face . A list of possible emoji will appear. Or select it from the emoji menu item in the toolbar. Paid Clubs (Link) I won't say much about this now because I don't know that we'll ever use the club, but eventually members can create "paid clubs" that members pay to join. Clubs received some other enhancements as well. Gallery Improvements (Link) Finally, you can create a gallery that anyone can submit to. For example, I've opened up the Animated GIFs gallery to everyone. My Newport Cup 2017 gallery is open to specified members (captains and players). (Though there's seemingly a bug with this right now.) Excluding Groups from the Leaderboard I've finally got the ability to hide myself from the Leaderboard. If you're not familiar with the Leaderboard, check it out. Blog Improvements (Link) Several small improvements to blogs. Check them out. If you don't yet have a blog, and want one… just visit https://thesandtrap.com/blogs/ and start one for yourself. Improved Search (Link) Yay! I'll look into setting up ElasticSearch eventually, but for now, even the MySQL search is improved. This isn't a comprehensive list. There are a number of other small improvements and changes.
I'm not sure why it says $229 on the left (maybe that will fix itself later today?), but when I visit the page it says $199. And with Prime, that's free two-day shipping too. It's also not May 23rd yet. Check it out. If you don't already own a GAME GOLF, but you care enough about golf to be on this site, you might want to consider picking one up. The auto hole switching is probably a little bit overdue, but it's nice and saves you from having to switch to a later hole to get a yardage. The hole editing is also really good. I know some guys use the phone app and this will make their stats much better without having to go back and edit on a computer later.
