July 2004[edit]

From VfD:

Producer of Invision Power File Manager, Invision Power Board among others. While the products seem to be quite popular, the and would be better served by an external link from any notable products it might have. Ianb 19:16, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep. The entry isn't intended as an ad and surely doesn't appear to be one. It was created as a stub to encourage an informal development of a company history, background, etc. for those who may not be familiar with it. --Zach A 19:15, 2004 Jul 28 (UTC)
  • Keep if the "ad-speak" is removed within a reasonably short period. Needs an emergency POV-ectomy. - Lucky 6.9 21:51, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep and possibly merge with the other two. Zocky 03:20, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep assuming that it will be cleaned up. The company has its own merit as an article. (Are we VingFD of the other two articles? They don't sound like they need to be deleted, but expanded as they are stubs right now.) [ alerante | “” 12:44, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC) ]

IP Dynamic[edit]

I think that the description for Invision Power Dynamic should be changed. --bdude 08:14, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Happy to oblige --Pti 03:26, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

Download Manager[edit]

This is not an official product yet, surely? 68.249.148.211 keeps on adding it. --Phatmonkey 18:11, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Grrrr. I'll jjust make a new heading for unreleased products to make this dynamic IP user happy! --PhatmonkeyTalk 18:21, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

IP Wiki[edit]

Added this section because it is in a similar status as the Download Manager...glad we have a section for unreleased products because they have a lot of them. Compguy11 05:51, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Info on 3rd Party IpbWiki[edit]

I'm curious to see what people think about this. There are hundreds of components made for IPB. Do we really need to advertise IpbWiki? Even if you argued that it relates to a current product in development as a 'alternative', there is also alternatives to Invision's Blog system and their gallery system. Should we mention those too? I just think it's free advertising for the creators of that component. (Just checked, and the person who added that is not a registered user..so..hmm) Comments, plz. Compguy11 09:53, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

I would like to learn about the alternatives for Invision Blog and Gallery.
A bit unreleated, but I also just visited you're site Compuguy11 and I see that you have started a petition about the fact that Invision Power Services removes posting access from people on IpsBeyond, I would like to see added that petition (in link form or as section (might need editing to let it less refer to you)) to this article as well, it is a much heared complaint and putting it here might be ideal to reach the target of IPS actually changing their policy in that regard. After all articles on Wikipedia are presumed to be objective, so we should show both sides of the medal if possible. Tasja 17:23, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for commenting...I'm somewhat new to Wikipedia(long time reader..recent contributor)...I'm glad you mentioned the petition...the petition is here if people want to read it and consider whether we should show the good and the bad of this company..I don't know how that affects NPOV...also about the alternatives for IPS products..should be make a new section for alternatives, or is it not relevant. I would love some more input. Compguy11 06:56, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Ineo and IpbWiki needs removal. Neither are related to IPS. They are modifications / bridges for IPB not officaly supported by IPS (so what if a staff member at IPS / IPSBeyond made it - its not an offical product. End off) therefore, are spamming the thread. The articles on IPS - not other modifications related to one of IPS Products (either officaly or unofficaly). Either way, they gotta go. 194.46.176.4

I went ahead and removed refrences to ipbwiki and ineo. I did leave that ineo was transferred to a different company since there was no real press release or anything stating that, so maybe some people still need to know. If anyone has a real problem with removing ipbwiki/ineo refrences, talk about it here. They are not official IPS products, and so therefore they don't belong here. There are hundreds of unofficial products made for IPB...we either list all of them or none of them. That's the closest you can get to NPOV. Compguy11 07:34, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

ok, makes sence, since it's about IPS products, I've removed reference to ineo company, to pertain the NPOV. Tasja 16:48, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Ineo[edit]

Has ineo actually ever been an ips product? Ineo is from a 3rd party vendor called Veriea, I can not remember a release of ineo under IPS's name. Besides the fact that ineo is being used on the ipsbeyond site, there's no connection at all... Do we want to have listed on this page all tools that are being used on official invision site and all it's sisters sites (ipsbeyond,...) or do we want this page to cover products IPS develops? Tasja 13:37, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

removed the ineo section as it isn't a product from ips. Tasja 11:54, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Connect and Converge[edit]

I updated information on connect because current information wasn't very helpful to anybody reading the article. I discussed what the purpose of the project is and it's current "unknown" state. Converge was also added to the list by me. Although it is a small project, it is important to some users that this will be available at some point. Any suggestions for these bits are welcome.

IP.Nexus/Dynamic merge[edit]

Okay sorry this is my first time posting in a discussion page so forgive me if I make a mistake or two.

But anyway the IP.Nexus section of this article is outdated, Invision Power released a video preview of IP.Nexus, which is a business suite that contains products such as the one formerly known as IP.Dynamic.

I'm no Wikipedia article expert so perhaps it might be best if someone else updates the page, thanks. Akiratheoni 23:45, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Management[edit]

People have been editing and adding false employee's to this section. For a full reference of currently employee's you can see:

Services[edit]

The services section needs to be totally re-worked or removed. It sounds like someone threw it together and its sorta like an advertisement.
