    Hmm.

    The latest iPF update includes adds, but doesn't state this in the update notes. Is this done on purpose?

    Are there any plans for selling an add-free iPF app?

    After reading my mini-rant above, I am sure many of you think that I have no clue as to what having a sense of humor is all about. When I am not handing out infractions, I can be a really funny guy.

    The thing that makes this forum so great, IMHO, is its "personality". This isn't just a place to exchange information and ideas about the iPad, but it is more of a social gathering place. With the possible exception of the Hacking section, almost everything else you wanted to know about your iPad can be found in the iPad User Guide or within the knowledge base on Apple's website or from Apple Care.

    So why do people come here instead? Either they don't know about those resources provided by the manufacturer or they want to come to a place where they can talk to "real people", not some anonymous help desk employee. We have members from all over the world ranging in age from barely being a teenager to well into their golden years and they bring a wealth of experience with them... including their sense of humor... some of which we may not understand or appreciate.
    I agree with this completely. This has always been a helpful AND social/friendly forum. To me this is not a news forum or a tech only forum. The balance is what has brought in and kept new members in my opinion and is not something I would think we should change. Fun talk and slight asides are ways of making people feel like a part of the community and I think leads to a well oiled forum. I am not a moderator here but I am/have been a moderator in other forums and the formula for success is the same. If we restricted this forum so tightly as to contain questions and answers only without the personality then many members would not return each day to see what is going on. I mean really, you're question is answered here's the door....yeah no.


    PS. you can up the post display in the user cp and not have tot turn/load so many pages as per individual preference and likewise you can turn on/off automatic subscriptions.
    Very well put and I like the idea(from your other post) about having 1000+ posts and making up your own label.

    Thank you. I think it would be fun to create our own status once we've earned the right. Also if admins/moderators were concerned about post whoring to get that coveted status then they could also implement a length of service to the requirement.... so 1000 posts and at least 3 mos. Within 3 months any active user would have sufficient "quality" posts to be accepted to the free choice status.

    Could be just me but could someone look at the search algorithm for the IPF app search function. I search for the same text string in the app and on line via the web page. I always get hits from the web page and pretty much get zero when I use the app... Thanks.

    Well... I'm still pretty new actually, so I don't really know much about the personality of the forums, but from what I see, I still find it an enjoyable experience to be here. And I have to admit, it's really refreshing to see how welcoming the folks are here, especially within the introductions forum. This place is probably one of the friendliest places I've been to.

    That, and I really like the iPF app too!

    That's great to hear! It's good that you're enjoying it so much. We're just a bunch of iPad enthusiasts and, like all enthusiasts, want to share our love of the iPad with everyone else.

    Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!
