Mobile Style Notifications

As I've mentioned here on S4GRU a few times, I've been an administrator on several different forums in the past, and I know quite a bit about the various forum software available I've used while working on these forums, such as VBulletin, WoltLab Burning Board, PHPBB, and Xenforo.

 

Although, I've never fully worked on a forum using the Invision Power Board software which S4GRU uses, other than a very old version of it which hardly resembles the current iteration. So, I'm not exactly sure if what I'm about to ask can be done or not.

 

The full version view of the site automatically clears the notification number symbol (the little red icon that appears) after they are viewed either individually, or by going to "view all notifications", then leaving that for any other area of the site.

 

Yet, on the mobile version, it does not. The red icon remains there with the number symbol of notifications, which keeps increasing the more notifications there are. The only way of changing that on a mobile device, is to switch over to the full version and try very precisely to tap on the correct indicators in order to clear these, then to decide whether or not to switch back to the mobile version.

 

I'd like to request to the staff to look into this matter and see if there is an option to change this feature on the mobile version. In no way is this a criticism of the site, and I completely understand if this can't be done or perhaps doing so is unwanted by the staff for whatever reason.

 

Some of these forum softwares are extremely delicate and every change to the software no matter how large or small could break the system. So I take no offense if you, the staff decide to leave it as is, no complaints from me. Just that it would help if this could be done without harming the forums setup.

The notifications used to clear a while ago. There must have been some kind of update in past several months that caused this bug to be introduced. It was only the past several months that the notifications won't clear anymore. I think it is more of a bug rather than a missing feature.

Hopefully that's the case.

 

These companies that make forum software are quite difficult to work with on technical support, so no use there either. My friend was using the Woltlab Burning Board software a year ago and it had some major, massively dangerous flaws in it, which I highly recommend the S4GRU staff, mainly Robert, to avoid at all costs!

 

I spent several hours trying to get my friend a refund from them, but all the responses from their support team were just awfully frustrating as they never got the point of just how bad their software was, and I'm not talking about the general nature of it, which was quite good, but the security flaws made the software worse than a black hat hacking party at the Experian Headquarters.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
