Ouch. That's worse than vBulletin saying the same thing. It rubs me the wrong way, and I'm sure they're not satisfied with that answer. If it was just me, I'd want it global, too. But options are always better. Yikes, sounds confusing and not really organized. I have never used an IPBoard as administrator until Dark Wizard made me admistrator of his Xbox site. So, when I got access to the ACP my first impression was: "Slow? Really? Here I thought vBulletin was slow." I can't tell you how painful it was just clicking on a link and then loading it. I sat there and I was bored quickly. I dunno about you, but that's embarrassing as a newcomer to IPB. Not embarrassing to me, but embarrassing on the part of IPB. I wonder how many people wanted a refund or to sell it. That's embarrassing. Agreed on both fronts. The logging on vB could have used more work, so I thought the logging in XF was not only straight forward, it was also detailed. That's impressive even for a developer who created a no-name company.
