  1. If you are a fashion enthusiast who follows fashion shows religiously, then you might already know that Gucci's latest show at the Milan Fashion Week was, well, um...WEIRD. The 2018 autumn/winter collection showcased models holding dragons © Twitter And what looked like severed heads of their own. WTF. © Twitter The show took place in an operation theatre setting, with walls painted in a hospital-green color and chairs like the ones you find in the waiting room. © Twitter But you know what, that's all beside the point. While all of this was enough to make headlines and stop the presses it wasn't exactly what one could call controversial. But what came next on the runway was not only a controversy just waiting to happen; it was downright disrespectful to an entire community. Very casually came in some 'white' models wearing turbans over their heads. © Twitter Yes, the same turban that has caused much uproar in countries that are basically not India and have led to innumerable racist attacks. © Twitter So if we understand this correctly, Gucci tried to present that something, which is essentially a symbol of power and strength and is a mark of pride for the Sikh community, can be used as just another fashion accessory? Twitter sure has an opinion on this whole fiasco and we can already predict this isn't going to end well for the brand. 1. Popular opinion so instead of hiring a sikh model they just put a TURBAN on a white boy??? WTF GUCCI pic.twitter.com/yWiCrVFRr2 — nisha (@trilogyalbums) February 21, 2018 2. Well said. how is it that a turban can be a hot new accessory for white @gucci models but when a brown man wears one he's a target for violence? they love to steal & sell our culture, but they don't love us. #culturenotcostume https://t.co/OGjaB9WxDQ pic.twitter.com/D6KtUEO8nU — leo kalyan (@leokalyan) February 22, 2018 3. Listen up Gucci @gucci HMU next time you need someone who really wears a Turban to model for y'all instead of making random people wear a Turban lol pic.twitter.com/3us3LX6oeD — ਮà©à¨¹à¨¤à¨¾à¨¬ ਸਿੰਠ(@MehtabhSingh_) February 22, 2018 4. This is just sad. My grandpa was recently on a walk in his own neighbourhood with his friends and was harassed with racial slurs by teenage white boys who threw water bottles at him bc he wears a turban but when Gucci does it it's called “fashion”...… seriously **** gucci — Aveneet ⬠(@aveneet2001) February 22, 2018 5. They need to understand the significance I hope Gucci keeps this energy the next time a sikh gets discriminated against lmao watch them act like they don't know what a turban is — amanlicious (@RoadKillAman) February 22, 2018 6. Seriously worse than fake products. Dear @gucci, the Sikh Turban is not a hot new accessory for white models but an article of faith for practising Sikhs. Your models have used Turbans as 'hats' whereas practising Sikhs tie them neatly fold-by-fold. Using fake Sikhs/Turbans is worse than selling fake Gucci products pic.twitter.com/gCzKPd9LGd — Harjinder Singh Kukreja (@SinghLions) February 22, 2018 7. Seriously, how is this just fashion? white person wears a turban on a runway: wow! fashion! I love gucci! brown person wears a turban in their daily life: TERRORIST!!!! https://t.co/hObivXm7y8 — san â¡ vixx (@taekwwon) February 22, 2018 8. Plenty of Sikh models out there. Hi @gucci next time please use #Sikh #Turban Models. Much appreciated. #SardaarModels #SmartSardaar #Gucci #GucciTurban ð³ð½âï¸ðð½ pic.twitter.com/Bc2f8kbfxq — Punjab2000.com - P2K (@Punjab2000music) February 23, 2018 9. YASS Dear @gucci, Next time you want to do a fashion show, hit us up! We have a whole army of Singh and Kaur models. You don't need to use a white model and put turban on them like it's a prop. We will come looking sexy as hell with our turbans on. (Reposted from @PammKaurr) pic.twitter.com/JL6lVzmDwr — Gurpy Colors o(:) (@gurpycolors) February 23, 2018 10. We all have questions. The Turban represents a Sikh's pride and is worn with dignity. It is a core staple in a Sikh's identity. It isn't a white mans accessory. My religion isn't your fashion?? White people really try to bank off of everything that isn't theirs. @gucci pic.twitter.com/un8yR2lAV8 — Pavleen (@pavyyy_) February 23, 2018 11. They could have done so much better. I really wish Gucci didn't do the whole turban thing... getting Sikh models could've made the runway iconic — Kim Kardajan (@t_am_an_a) February 23, 2018 12. Offensive doesn't cut it. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME??!! I am so disgusted by this. Offensive isn't even the word. There are multiple reasons why this is so wrong!! The amount of hate and discrimination I have gotten for wearing a turban and being sikh and now it's trendy? #GUCCI @sikh @discrimination pic.twitter.com/uk4SMaKmo4 — Simran kaur (@Sim_Tube) February 22, 2018 Pretty sure after seeing an entire community enraged, an apology is in order and we hope other brands take lesson that using cultural symbol as a costume in never going to be okay and if you do need to use it, the least you can do is use it in the right manner.
  2. One of the advantages of running your own community is that you get to control the branding. Branding is important as it defines and re-enforces your customer's experience. Branding also promotes recognition, it sets you apart from your competition and it provides motivation and direction for your staff. Invision Community has many built in tools to change the look and feel of the community. If you are a savvy coder, you can dive right into the HTML and CSS templates to create truly unique themes. You might also look at an off-the-shelf theme from our marketplace. There are some great themes you can use as a base for your branding. Easy Mode Editor One tool that is often overlooked is the Easy Mode Editor. It's a great way to make some simple changes to reflect your brand's identity. It offers a great deal of control, but I want to show you how you can brand your community in just a few short minutes without knowing a line of code. The presentation below takes you through creating a new Easy Mode theme, and using the Easy Mode Editor on the front end to dynamically change the colours. You'll also learn how to upload your logo. How to brand your community presentation Email Branding Another area to consider is outgoing emails. Invision Community leverages emails for notifications, as well as the bulk email system in the Admin CP. These emails look fine by default, but adding your logo and primary color re-enforces your branding. The presentation below shows you the few simple steps needed to brand your emails. How to brand your emails presentation As you can see, Invision Community offers simple tools to change the look of your community without knowing how to code. We hope you find this useful. If you have any questions, please let us know below!
  3. Version


    4.2.7 is a maintenance release that fixes issues identified in 4.2.6 and also adds settings to help with GDPR compliance.This release also contains several security updates.
  4. As a nation, India is thriving hard to steer fast into becoming a super economy but when you realise that there are issues of debate that surprises one to no end, you wonder are we really developing? While, the nation continues debating Section 377 and the whole idea of how we perceive homosexuality in general, Manvendra Singh Govil, an Indian prince and the heir of Maharaja of Rajpipla of Gujarat, is doing something which few would even dare to think. © wikimedia The prince has decided to open his palace in support of the LGBT community. He even runs a centre called the 'Lakshya Trust'. He wants to ensure a proper social system in place for the people belonging to this community in order to protect their welfare. In an interview with International Business Insider he opened up about the whole idea behind this noble thought. “If I could undergo these problems then any other gay person could face a similar situation. In India, we have a family system and we are mentally conditioned to be with our parents. The moment you try to come out, you are told you will be thrown out and society will boycott you. You become a social outcast. A lot of people are financially dependent on their parents. I want to give people social and financial empowerment, so eventually people who want to come out won't be affected. They will have their own social security system. It won't make a difference if they are disinherited.” © YouTube When the Prince first came out in the open about his sexual orientation, he was shunned by his own family. His story was voiced out by many TV shows which wanted to throw light on the situation and make the world more aware about how this is not supposed to be a 'taboo'. He even appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Network back in 2007 and spoke about how he had no regrets about the whole thing. He won a lot of support and even inspired many to come out and accept their reality. He was recently spotted in the last season of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' as well, where he spoke to the family about the issues that surround people from this community. One needs to realise that when we try to address issues of communal harmony and dream of developing our nation, how callously we shun the LGBT community who deserve to live in peace like every one else. We have mad respect for the prince and hope he continues to inspire more people to open their hearts to this sensitive issue.
  5. One huge benefit of running your own Invision Community is the moderation tools. Out of the box, Invision Community allows you to turn members into moderators. Better still, you can define what these moderators have permission to do. Part of this moderation suite is the report system. The report system allows your members to flag posts that need a moderator's attention. There comes a time when your community is so successful that it can be a little tough to keep up with all the content and reports. Community Moderation This new feature leverages your member reports to automatically remove objectionable content from public view. You as the admin will define thresholds for the content. For example, you may say that to hide content, a post needs 5 reports. This reduces the workload for your moderators and enables you to crowd source moderation. Let's take a look at this feature in a little more detail. Reporting Content When a member reports a piece of content, they now have the option to set a type, such as "Spam" or "Offensive". These options can count towards the threshold. Once the threshold has been passed the item is hidden. The threshold can be set up by creating rules in the Admin CP. Admin Set Up At its heart of the system are the rules. You can create custom rules in the Admin CP to determine the thresholds. For example, you may decide that: A member with less than 10 posts only needs 5 reports to hide the content. But you may want to give more experienced members a higher threshold as there is more trust. You simply add a new rule: A member who joined over a year ago with over 500 posts needs 10 reports to hide content. You can do that easily with the rules system as it will scan them all and pick the one most suitable for this member. It's as simple as that. Notifications Once an item has received enough reports to match the threshold, it is automatically hidden from view. A notification is sent to all moderators who opt in for notifications. This notification shows inline in the notifications center. It can also optionally be sent via email for those who want to know without checking the site. Restoring the content Of course, a moderator may decide that the content is fine and un-hide it. Once a piece of content has been un-hidden, automatic moderation will not hide it again. Report Types Depending on your community, the default types may not be suitable or relevant. You may also want to set up other report types. You can do this via the Admin CP. Preventing Abuse Your first thought may be that a single member can report a single item multiple times to force content to be hidden. The system will only count a unique member as one point towards the threshold. This means a single member can report an item 5 times, but they are only counted once towards the threshold. You can also set a time limit between reporting the same item. This will prevent a member reporting a single item multiple times in succession. Of course, the member can delete their report if it was in error. Report Center The Report Center is the hub for all reported content. Invision Community 4.3 adds a filter to view a specific report type. The reports themselves also show the type of report. We hope that this new feature will be a huge help and time saver for you and your moderators. We'd love to hear your thoughts, please let us know what you think and if you have any questions.
  6. SIALKOT: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi praised the business community of Sialkot on Monday while addressing an event at the Sialkot International Airport. Speaking at the event, the PM remarked that development work across the country is reflective of the vision of Nawaz Sharif, the president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. Reiterating his earlier claims, he said that when PML-N came into power conditions in Pakistan were dire. "We even completed the Nandipur project which started in 2006." However, he remarked that PML-N continues to be criticised despite completing projects and working for the benefit of the people. "Even attempts were made to spread disorder in the last four years," the PM said. Earlier, the premier inaugurated the international terminal of the airport. Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Aviation Adviser Sardar Mehtab Abbasi were present alongside the premier. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, who hails from Sialkot, received the prime minister on his arrival. The premier was also briefed by the National Highway Authority on the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway. The prime minister will later meet members of the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
  7. When I started creating communities close to two decades ago, getting new members was easy. All you had to do was put up a script, create some "Chat here" forums and email your friends. It didn't take long for word to spread and you had a healthy forum buzzing with conversation. Now, it's different. The internet is a crowded space. No matter what your niche, you will be competing with other businesses for visitors. You need a solid strategy to succeed, and I want to help you. Before you open the doors to your new community, consider the following questions. What is your vision? Your community must have a strong reason to attract visitors. Write down your community's purpose and bullet point how you will achieve it. When you configure and set up your community, keep asking yourself "does this fit my vision". For example. Consider a fitness professional who is launching a community. The vision is to educate your audience on good nutrition and exercise. You then have subscription based packages for one-to-one coaching. This is a very focused vision. You will create one or two forums for the public areas. You will leverage clubs for the paid memberships. You wouldn't create forums for non-fitness areas such as technology or movies. You will strip the complexity back to encourage interaction as your target market may not be very technical. What is your voice? You will lead your community and set the tone. If you are handling investment portfolios then you will want the tone to be friendly, but professional. If you are creating a forum for marathon runners, you'd want to use a lot of running "lingo" and be informal and fun. Consider your target audience. Think about how they would like to be treated. How would they like your interactions to be? Once you have found your voice, keep it consistent. Your members will follow your lead and keep your community positive. How are you going to onboard new members? If you want people to join in with your new community, you need to hold their hand and show them why they are important to you. They will want to feel comfortable and valued in your community. When you are starting out, take the time to welcome each new member and point them to any welcome guides you may have. You can create and pin a topic that explains how to get started. When a new member joins, link them to that topic. You should also use profile completion to politely enforce the use of a user photo. A photo personalises a user's profile and reminds that you are speaking to a human! Remind them to set up email notifications so they won't miss any exciting updates or new topics. What is your promotion strategy? No matter how great your content is, it needs promoting. There are several great ways to do this. You can create a monthly email sent to all members. You can outline any important topics or articles. You can list upcoming events. You can promote your articles to Facebook and Twitter. Make the headlines interesting to encourage clicks into your content. By driving traffic back to your site, you will increase your membership. How often are you going to contribute to your own community? In the early days of your new community, you will have to be very active. You will want to welcome new members and keep conversations alive. You will be creating new conversations for others to contribute in. You must budget time for this and be consistent. Show up every day. I recommend setting aside two blocks of 30 minutes each day. Use that time to reply to any new topics and to kick off a few of your own. Visit early in the morning, and again in the evening. How are you going to reward active members? Once you community gets going, some individuals will stand out as leaders. These leaders are well respected and encourage others to take part. Create a special member group with better privileges such as increased storage space, or the ability to create post signatures. Give them a special badge and member title. It will show that you respect and appreciate their contributions. Having a small number of community leaders will save you time. They will always have their fingers on the pulse and can feedback any issues before they develop into something serious. Are you going to funnel discussion into your community? Your community is one part of your site. If you have pages and articles up elsewhere, I recommend you encourage posting in the forums. At the end of each article, link to a related forum and ask for their thoughts. People love sharing their thoughts and opinions. Summary Taking the time to create a strategy will pay dividends later. Getting into a professional and focused mindset will make you stand out from the crowd. Knowing the exact purpose of your community and how to execute it is key for success. Thinking about the questions posed above is a great start. It should make you think about your target audience and how to serve them. It may even create more questions. I'd love to help you answer them. Let me know what your plans are for your community.

New Gallery Interface We have reworked our Gallery system with a simplified upload process and more streamlined image viewing. The full list follows. Enjoy! Content Discovery We now support Elasticsearch which is a search utility that allows for much faster and more reliable searching. The REST API now supports search functions. Both MySQL and Elasticsearch have new settings for the admin to use to set search-defaults and default content weighting to better customize search logic to your community. Visitors can now search for Content Pages and Commerce Products. When entering a search term, members now see a more clear interface so they know what areas they are searching in and the method of search. Member Engagement Commerce can now send a customizable account welcome email after checkout. You can whitelist emails in the spam service to stop false-positives. REST API has many enhancements to mange members. Ability to join any OAuth service for login management. Invision Community can now be an OAuth endpoint. Wordpress OAuth login method built in. Support for Google's Invisible ReCaptcha. Groups can be excluded from Leaderboard (such as admins or bot groups). All emails generated by Invision Community can now contain admin-defined extra promotional text in the footer such as recent topics, Our Picks, and more. Admins can now define the order of Complete Your Profile to better control user experience. Clubs Option to make a Club visible but invite-only Admins can set an option so any Club a member is part of will also show in the parent application. So if you are in a Club that has a Gallery tab then those image will show both in the Club and in the main Gallery section of the community. Club members can now follow an entire Club rather than just each content section. There is a new option on the Club directory page for a list view which is useful for communities with many Clubs. If you have Commerce you can now enable paid memberships to Clubs. Admins can set limits on number of Clubs per group. If a group has delete permission in their Club, they can now delete empty containers as well. Members can ignore invitations. Moderation and Administration Unrestricted moderator or administrator permission sets in the AdminCP are visually flagged. This prevents administrator confusion when they cannot do something as they will be able to quickly see if their account has restrictions. You can choose to be notified with a new Club is created. Moderators can now reply to any content item with a hidden reply. Download screenshot/watermarks can now be rebuilt if you change settings. Support for Facebook Pixel to easily track visitors. Moderators can now delete Gallery albums. Automatic moderation tools with rules to define when content should auto-hide based on user reports. Totally new member management view in AdminCP. More areas are mass-selectable like comments and AdminCP functions for easier management. New Features Commerce now has full Stripe support including fraud tools, Apple Pay, and other Stripe features. Commerce packages can now have various custom email events configured (expiring soon, purchased, expired). Full Emojii support in the editor. Setting so when someone is typing in an editor, other members will see a "Member X is typing..." status in the editor view. Complete overhaul of the Gallery upload and image views. Announcements system overhaul. Now global on all pages (not via widget) and new modes including dismissible announcements and top-header floating bar option. Many new reports on traffic and engagement in the AdminCP. Blog has new view modes to offer options for a traditional site blog or a community multi-member blog platform. The content-starter can now leave one reply to Reviews on their item. Commerce now makes it much easier to do basic account-subscriptions when there is no product attached. Useful Improvements Forums has a new widget where you can filter by tags. If tags are not required, the tag input box now indicates this so the member knows they do not have to put in tags. Member cover photos can now be clicked to see the full image. Any item with a poll now has a symbol on the list view. Twitch.tv embed support. You can now update/overwrite media in the Pages Media Manager. Mapbox as an additional map provider to Google Maps. Technical Changes Direct support for Sparkpost has been removed. Anyone currently using Sparkpost will automatically have their settings converted to the Sparkpost SMTP mode so your email will still work. Your cache engines (like Redis) will be checked on upgrade and in the support tool to ensure they are reachable. Third-party applications will now be visually labeled to distinguish them from Invision Community official applications. The queued tasks list in the AdminCP is now collapsed by default as queued tasks are not something people need to pay much attention to during normal operations. When upgrading from version 3 series you must convert your database to UTF8 and the system saves your original data in tables prefixed with orig. The AdminCP now alerts you these are still present and allows you to remove them to reclaim storage space. On new installs there are now reasonable defaults for upload limits to keep people from eating up storage space. Categories in all apps (forums, gallery albums, databases, etc.) no longer allow HTML in their titles. This has been a concern both in terms of security and usability so we were forced to restrict it. Large improvements to the Redis cache engine including use for sessions. The login with HTTPS option has been removed and those who were using it will be given instructions to convert their entire community to HTTPS. Images loaded through the proxy system now honor image limits for normal uploads. There's a lot to talk about here so we are going to lock this entry to comments so things do not get confusing. Feel free to comment on upcoming feature-specific entries or start a topic in our Feedback forum.
  9. President Mamnoon Hussain (L), Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi (R) President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi extended felicitations to the Christian community on the occasion of Christmas Day. Greeting the Christian community in Pakistan and across the world on Christmas, President Mamnoon said it is the day to reiterate the universal teachings of patience, tolerance, kindness and goodwill, not only for the Christians but the entire humanity. The president said peace and happiness could be brought back to the world, which was engaged in conflicts of interests and wars, by adopting aforementioned virtues. ?The lesson that we learn from the teachings of the Jesus Christ (AS) is that life and property of all people living on this planet should be given equal respect and protection without discriminating on the basis of colour, cast, religion and belief,? he said. In his message, President Mamnoon paid tribute to the country?s Christian community for their services rendered for progress and stability of Pakistan. He said their contribution particularly in the fields of medicine and education is greatly valued by the people and government of Pakistan. In his message on Christmas Day, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi felicitated the Christian community worldwide and appreciated the efforts of Pakistani Christians for socioeconomic development of their homeland. ?We are proud of our Christian brethren; they are an integral part of our multicultural polity; and I am confident that their patriotic contributions will continue to accelerate the pace of Pakistan?s progress,? he said in his message. The premier said much more than festivity and celebration, the spirit of Christmas was to share, to reach out, and to love all humanity. He said that Jesus Christ (AS) brought and preached the message of peace, brotherhood and love for the whole humanity. "He guided people towards virtuous living and urged them to seek divine mercy." Political leaders share Christmas greetings Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif felicitated the Christian community on the occasion of Christmas. In his message, he said "the birthday of Hazrat Esa (AS) is sacred and holy for Muslims also along with Christians because we consider Jesus as prophet of God so his respect is obligatory for us.? The chief minister said that the festival of Christmas gives the opportunity to promote friendship, love and mutual associations and ?today we share the joyous moments of Christian community.? Their services in the country's development and progress are beyond doubt as they are playing an active role for stability and growth of Pakistan as well as promotion of education, Shehbaz said, adding that ?this remarkable role for development and progress of country is commendable and reflects their patriotism?. He said that the Punjab government has taken concrete measures for the welfare of all the minorities including the Christian community. The PML-N government has ensured the protection of minority rights as founder of Pakistan Mohammad Ali Jinnah also stressed upon giving equal rights to all the minorities. All the minorities in Pakistan including the Christian community have freedom to live according to their beliefs, he said. Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari extended felicitations to the Christian community in Pakistan and the world over on the auspicious occasion of Christmas. In a felicitation message on the eve of Christmas, the PPP chairman said that his party has always fought for the downtrodden and the marginalized and is the true ideological heir of the founder of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. He pointed out that the PPP gave representation to non-Muslims including Christians in the Senate of Pakistan for the first time and elected more than two dozen non-Muslim PPP workers as chairmen and vice chairmen of District Councils, Municipal and Town Committees. Condemning the recent terrorist attack on a Quetta church, Bilawal said PPP leaders will always stand in solidarity with the victims besides taking all possible steps to protect them. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan wished the Christian brethren a happy Christmas in a message on Twitter. "Wishing our Christian citizens a Happy Christmas, full of peace and joy," he tweeted. PPP's Senator Sherry Rehman posted a picture with a Christmas tree to share her greetings.
  10. The charpoy, which can accommodate up to sixty to eighty people at a time, has been placed in the area since last 20 years DERA GHAZI: A big charpoy in Dera Ghazi Khan?s Khayaban-e-Sarwar has become a meeting place for community members, encouraging them to engage with one another over a cup of tea. The charpoy, which can accommodate up to 60 to 80 people at a time, has been placed in the area since last 20 years.

  13. Despite your best efforts, is engagement a problem for your community? You have your site promotion running well and you are seeing plenty of traffic but it doesn't convert into comments, posts or reactions? Invision Community is a powerful platform that offers layers of complexity for the many sites it powers. When you are struggling to convert page views into comments, it's worth taking a step back and evaluating your site from a new user's point of view. We'll take you through our 6 best tips to simplify your site and increase engagement using built in tools. #1 Use Social Sign In with at least Facebook and Twitter enabled. Social sign in makes it easy for causal visitors to become content contributors by creating an account. Social sign in removes the complex registration form that may put some off. It's a fact that most people visiting your site will have either a Facebook account or a Twitter account. Use that to your advantage! #2 Use Profile Completion One of the biggest reasons sites fail to convert visitors into members is because of large or complex forms. If you have many required profile fields, your potential member is likely to abandon the form. Use the Profile Completion system with fewer fields where possible for a simpler registration form. The Profile Completion system allows new members to complete their profile in their own time. Of course, you can still enforce vital fields before members can contribute. #3 Use Fluid View Traditional forums can be a little daunting to site visitors used to Facebook. The top down categorisation is a strength for separating conversations. Yet, it can be confusing for a first time visitor to navigate. Fluid view breaks down these boundaries by presenting your conversations in one simple list. By removing the need to jump between forum containers, new visitors are encourage to keep diving deeper into your conversations. An engaged visitor is more likely to contribute. #4 Keep your forum structure simple Even with fluid view enabled, complex forum structures can confuse. Consider a brand new forum with a hundred different conversation areas. Would a new user know where to go and post? Would they be put off thinking they are posting in the wrong area? The best advice is always start off with as few forum containers as possible and increase them as your community grows. #5 Use Reactions One of the simplest ways to increase engagement is to turn on Reactions. Reactions allow other members to leave feedback on a post in a few clicks. The default reactions allow one to like, give thanks, express confusion, sadness or happiness. You can add your own reactions to tailor the platform to your niche and personality. Non-verbal engagement is important for your active posters. If they receive reactions to their posts, they are more likely to reply more and return often to see what feedback they have received. #6 Use the Sign In/Sign Up widget A very simple way to increase visitor to member conversion is to just ask them to register. Invision Community ships with a drag and drop widget that you can use to outline what your site is about and encourage registration. In one very simple but prominent box, you can see what the site is about and how to join in. Summary New and existing communities should take a moment to see their site through a new visitor's eyes. Consider how easy your structure is to navigate and how many barriers to registration there are. You can streamline both registration and conversation presentation with our built in tools. The key to increasing engagement is to make it a simple as possible to join your community. Make sure your barriers or entry are set low. Not using Invision Community?

  14. We all know what a pain spam can be. We deal with it daily in our inboxes often relying on clever software to filter it out for us. Even worse, some spam is so well disguised that it can fool you into thinking it is a genuine message. You've put in the hard work with your community. You've used the built in social promotion tools and SEO features to get it noticed. Now that it's indexing well with Google, you've become a target. Invision Community has several tools in its arsenal to deal with spam leaving you free to concentrate on your members and content. We'll take a look at these tools in more detail. First, it's important to know that there are two main types of spam. Computer generated and human generated. Computer generated spam is malicious software that throws millions of messages out and hopes some sticks to high profile communities. Human generated spam is more pernicious as it can often bypass automated measures. Human spammers often register accounts and post as members on your community. This leaves you free to concentrate on your content and less time deleting posts and members! The first line of defense Invision Community comes equipped with Spam Defense. This is free with all cloud and licensed plans. Spam Defense harnesses the combined knowledge of thousands of Invision Communities. It will assess the potential threat of each new user and stop them before they can cause any problems. To date, Spam Defense has blocked over 3,000,000 spam accounts. Spam Defense works by evaluating the registering member against its database. It will score the account from 1 (not a spammer) to 4 (a known spammer) allowing you to decide what to do with each level. If a spammer gets past the Spam Defense, flag them as a spammer using the built in tools. This will clear up all their posts in a single action and report back to Spam Defense that this account has spammed your site. These community led reports allow Spam Defense to learn and adapt. Preventing spammers from registering The CAPTCHA ("Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") is a well tested and robust method to defeat computerised spammers. It is usually a small widget on a sign up form that asks you to re-enter words shown in an image. Invision Community supports Recaptcha2 by Google, meaning that in most cases your users don't even have to type in random letters. Instead, Google algorithms determine if the user is human or otherwise. Invision Community supports KeyCaptcha. This requires guests to solve a simple problem before they can contribute. The Question and Answer challenge works on its own or in conjunction with a CAPTCHA. This system allows you to create simple question and answer challenges unique to your community. As these answers are unique, computerized spammers cannot solve them. Also, human spammers not knowledable with your niche are often unable to solve them too. While the above are great for reducing the number of computerized spammers, we need to be especially clever to weed out human spammers. Dealing with human spammers Smart configuration of your community will also help in defeating spammers. Invision Community supports posting without registering. This feature allows for fast engagement but use it with caution. It works best if you only allow it for specific forums. Invision Community's membership promotion system also has tools which you can leverage. To make your site less appealing to human spammers, you can configure two membership groups. Let us look at an example which uses "New Members" and "Members". "New Members" is the default group for new registrations. In this group you can remove the ability to add a signature to each post. Often spammers use signatures to earn referrals on links. You can also define a limit for posts per day. This will throttle the number of spam posts a member can make. Now that you have your "New Members" group set up to build trust, you can promote them using Group Promotions. A good strategy is to promote them to "Members" when they have reached a certain level of reputation. This shows that they have become a trusted member of the community. You may wish to promote them a week after joining knowing that spammers usually leave after a day or so. There are many different criteria you can use allowing you to tailor it for your own needs. Summary Dealing with spam is a reality for every successful community. Invision Community has several features to mitigate its impact. Through leveraging its built in tools to smart configuration, you can make your community a fortress against spam. In addition, our exclusive Spam Defense system grows and learns every day stopping spammers from registering. To learn how to configure Invision Community's spam prevention tools, please see our help guide. Not using Invision Community? We can convert you from other platforms preserving your data.

  15. Whether you run an existing community or are taking tentative first steps into setting up an online community forum around your brand, an important choice you need to make is between social networks like Facebook or having a community you own and control. Let's take a look at the benefits of an owned community versus a Facebook group - as well as how you can still use Facebook (and other social media platforms) to your advantage. You own your data The biggest point to consider when using Facebook groups is that you do not own your own data. Facebook owns it and does not even allow you direct access to it. If you decide later to move to a different platform, need to run reports to extract meaningful insights, or otherwise work with your community data: you are out of luck. In contrast, with an Invision Community, your data is your data. You can use it in any way that makes sense for your goals; be it analyzing trends, sending promotions to users, or generating reports and statistics. We never hold your data hostage and there's no fee to get it. Beyond owning the data, you also control how it's used and presented. Facebook is notorious for changing algorithms for when (or even if) people see your posts. When you run your own community the experience for your and your users is in your control. Branding opportunities This is a big one. An owned community gives you the tools you need to make your community a seamless part of your user's interaction with your business. This naturally includes your brand styles (your logo, colors, site navigation and so on) but also your community web address (URL). With an owned community, your URL will be easy to find - customers normally opt for something like forum.yourname.com or community.yourname.com. Users will have more confidence that they're in the right place, and more closely associate your community and your message with your brand. Emails sent out by your owned community can also carry your branding, consistently reinforcing that connection between your business and your community. And, of course, when users share content from your community to Facebook and other social networks, they're sending users directly to your website where you have the opportunity to lead with your most important call to actions. More control over user experience All Facebook groups are, essentially, the same experience and yet your business needs almost certainly aren't the same as every other. One size doesn't necessarily fit all when it comes to community! When you control your own community, you have the ability to control your user's experience. Need to show specific types of data in specific places? You can do that (and more) with Invision Community's easy to use Blocks feature. Need to create a custom community application to serve as a resource center for product support? You can do that too. Another huge benefit of this control is that, unlike a Facebook Group, users won't be seeing ads and 'recommended content' from competing businesses and communities. With user attention being pulled in so many directions these days, the last thing your community needs is for users to leave because Facebook has suggested a competitor! No barriers to monetization Not all communities require a monetization strategy. In many cases, the community is part of a larger customer relationship strategy rather than a revenue-generating destination in its own right. But for those communities that do plan to monetize, options with a Facebook group are at best difficult to act upon, and at worst practically non-existent. In contrast, Invision Community gives you the opportunity to explore monetization strategies that work for you. These might include paid subscription plans (a particularly attractive option for fan club communities), traditional advertising through Google AdSense and other networks, or sponsorship deals with other businesses that might be relevant to your members. Invision Community has tools for each of these approaches built in, allowing you to start monetizing with minimum fuss. Fine-grained permission controls Facebook groups struggle to reflect the real-world roles that staff members play in your organization, limiting your choices to 'administrator' or 'moderator'. And the same is true of users, too - your options for recognizing different levels of user (such as VIPs, or brand ambassadors) are limited. Invision Community is different. Since you are creating and configuring each member group, you can precisely control who can see what, and how they are recognized within the community. You can even sync these roles via Single Sign-On (SSO) making setup and assigning users to groups painless. For staff groups, you can limit access to key community functions based on roles or responsibilities, ensuring access is granted on an as-needed basis only. For users, you can get creative and find a group structure that works best for your specific needs. For example, support communities often find that recognizing the most knowledgeable and helpful members with a new member group (complete with elevated permissions) is a great way of engaging users. And finally, with this control over access, it's very easy to create restricted areas of the community. Whether you want to create a private subforum that staff can use to coordinate tasks or a file repository that's only available to subscribers, Invision Community can achieve it. You can still reap the Facebook benefits Setting up your community within Facebook's walls might not be the best approach for you. That doesn't mean you should ignore Facebook, however. On the contrary, it's an influential platform and there's a very good chance your users are already using it. Invision Community offers a number of tools that allow you to benefit from Facebook while avoiding the drawbacks we discussed. We'll go into more detail on utilizing social media in a future article, but to summarize: Invision Community features social sign-in options, enabling users to register and log in using their existing social media accounts, substantially reducing onboarding friction. Content can promoted by staff back to your social network pages, automatically and on a schedule you decide. Invision Community supports automatic embedding of a wide number of social networks (and other services), allowing users to share their favorite Facebook and Twitter posts and spark a whole new conversation - but this time in your community. Summary When you are creating an online community for your business or hobby it is important to think about your goals and future growth by choosing a platform that is there to work for your needs. When you establish your community on Facebook, you're helping to grow someone else's business (including, potentially, your competitors!) and hoping that some of those spoils fall to you. With an owned community, the rewards of your hard work belong to you and your business alone. Invision Community has been enabling users and businesses to communicate online since 2002, and we're proud of our reputation as a platform that puts control in your hands. Contact us if you'd like to discuss how we can help you too.
  16. Our recent release of Invision Community 4.2 was the most well-received version ever! The feedback we received on new features like Clubs, Reactions, and Promotes was better than we could have hoped and we really enjoyed seeing all the creative uses as people implemented them on their own communities. We have been hard at work on version 4.3 with a goal of improving on all the great new features. It is well under way and we are happy to able to start announcing what's new over the next few weeks. Invision Community 4.3 will not only contain new features but also have a core focus on refinement from 4.2's new features. You will see many improvements to Clubs, new integration options, large application improvements, new promotional features, and more changes large and small. You can expect to see news posts about new features and changes very soon with a release date in early 2018. Follow our news section or subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates.
  17. Making security considerations a key part of your community setup and maintenance can save you from many future headaches. You've worked hard to get your community moving. Don't make yourself an easy target and undo that work. Here’s our current advice to our customers. 1. Enable HTTPS HTTPS is fast becoming the standard way to serve websites. In 2016, more than 50% of web requests were served under HTTPS for the first time. Chrome and Firefox now explicitly warn users on login forms that aren’t sending data over HTTPS, and it’s not hard to imagine that in the near future all insecure pages will receive the warning. HTTPS simply means that website data is served over a secure connection and can’t be read or tampered with by a ‘middle man’ hacker. You can identify a site using HTTPS because the address in your browser will show ‘https://’ (instead of http://), and normally a lock icon or the word ‘secure’. Invision Community supports HTTPS by default simply by changing your base URL configuration to include HTTPS. Of course your web host will need to support it as well and our Invision Community Cloud services support it by default. Contact support if you have any questions. Recommendation: Set up HTTPS for your entire community to prevent ‘man in the middle’ attacks. 2. Set up Two Factor Authentication Invision Community supports Two Factor Authentication (2FA for short), and we highly recommend making use of this feature for your users, but especially for your administrator staff. 2FA is a system that requires both a user’s password and a special code (displayed by a phone app) that changes every few seconds. The idea is simple: if a user’s password is somehow compromised, a hacker still wouldn’t be able to log in to the account because they would not have the current code number. You may already be familiar with 2FA from other services you use. Apple’s iCloud, Facebook and Google all offer it, as do thousands of banks and other security-conscious businesses. Invision Community supports 2FA via the Google Authenticator app (available for iOS and Android) or the Authy service, which is able to send codes to users via text message or phone call. You can also fall back to security questions instead of codes. You can configure which members groups can use 2FA, as well as requiring certain groups to use it. Recommendation: Require any staff with access to the Admin Control Panel or moderation functions to use 2FA, to ensure that no damage can be done should their account passwords be discovered. Allow members to use 2FA at their discretion. 3. Configure password requirements The password strength feature displays a strength meter to users as they type a new password, showing them approximately how secure it is, as well as some tips for choosing a good password. While you can leave this feature as a simple recommendation for users, it’s also possible to require them to choose a password that reaches to a certain strength on the meter. Recommendation: Require users to choose at least a ‘Strong’ password. 4. Use Admin restrictions It’s very common that many different staff members need access to the Admin Control Panel depending on the role. You may have design staff, billing staff, community managers, and so on, all with particular tasks they would like to achieve. Invision Community can help improve the security of your Admin Control Panel by allowing you to restrict the functions available to each administrator, granting them access to only the tools needed to do their job. Recommendation: Audit your community’s administrator accounts and applying restrictions where it makes sense to do so. 5. Stay up to date It’s important to ensure you’re always running the latest release of Invision Community. With each release, we add new security features, audit code and fix any issues reported through responsible disclosure. Falling behind can therefore make your community a tempting target for potential hackers. Your Invision Community Admin Control Panel will let you know when a new release is available, and you can also check out our Release page to track releases. For our Enterprise customers, we’ll automatically apply updates for you shortly after release as part of your plan. For our self-hosted and Cloud customers, you can easily apply new updates via the Admin Control Panel with a couple of clicks. Our Invision Community Cloud contains all best practices for security. However, if you are self-hosted, be sure to work with your web host to ensure your server is setup properly. Ensuring that server software, firewalls, and access controls are in place is very important as an insecure server can be your worst enemy. Recommendation: Aim to install latest updates as soon as feasible. 6. IP address restrictions For organizations where staff are centrally-based in one location, or are required to use a VPN, you can improve your community security by restricting access to the Admin Control Panel to the IP addresses your staff will be using. This is a server-level feature, so contact your IT team to have this facility set up your installation. Enterprise customers who wish to utilize IP restrictions should contact our Managed Support team, while Cloud customers can submit a support ticket to have this set up. Recommendation: Where staff all access the community from a small number of IP addresses, restrict Admin Control Panel access to those IPs. Summary Don’t leave security as an afterthought. Invision Community includes a range of tools to help you ensure your data and members protected, as well as industry-standard protections ‘under the hood’. Make use of these features, and they’ll help ensure the wellbeing of your site. As always, if you have any questions or need advice, our support team are on hand to assist you.
  18. The transgender community faces discrimination in Pakistan and finding employment is a challenge. Photo: Bhasker Solanki ISLAMABAD: Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU ) has inaugurated a programme to deliver free education to transgenders. AIOU is known for the uplifting of marginalized sections of the society, The News reported.

  19. WASHINGTON: Pakistan Ambassador to the United States Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said on Thursday that Pakistan stands with United States and the international community against terrorism. The ambassador was addressing a ceremony at the Pakistani embassy in Washington. He said that Pakistan Army has not only faced hostility from its eastern neighbor, India, but also took adequate action against terrorists. Pakistan has enhanced its diplomatic efforts and reiterated its strong commitment towards establishment of longstanding peace in Afghanistan. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/b4ed61ba2e8108cb3b75405a10180775.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9OS8yOC8yMDE3IDU6NDU6NDcgQU0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT1iQ3JTeWpFL3lNY3BSOEpTQ3RzUll3PT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] The efforts come as a backdrop of the announcement of US President Donald Trump?s strategy for the region in August, harshly criticising Pakistan for providing a safe haven to "agents of chaos". The US president cleared the way for the deployment of thousands more US troops to Afghanistan, backtracking from his promise to rapidly end America's longest war, while pillorying ally Pakistan. After the criticism, Pakistan proceeded to display its displeasure at Trump's remarks and postponed a visit by US acting Assistant Secretary of State Alice Wells. On August 24, in a meeting of the National Security Committee, the government strongly rejected certain allegations levelled against the country. A statement released also said that Pakistan has an interest in Afghanistan?s peace and stability and the country has dealt with the Afghan refugee problem after the withdrawal of Russia.
  20. KARACHI: Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan chief Farooq Sattar and Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar called on the leader of the Bohra community at Tahiri Mosque on Sunday. The three political leaders, hailing from different political parties, met Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifud­din who is in the country for observing Muharram. Speaking to the media, the governor said establishing peace in the megacity is everyone?s responsibility, whereas the chief minister said they are ensuring that the best security arrangements are in place for Muharram. Bohra community members from across the globe to observe Ashra in Karachi Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifud­din, the head of the Dawoodi Bohra community, arrived in the city on September 14 The head of the Dawoodi Bohra community arrived in the city on September 14. Dr Saifuddin, who travelled from India, is expected to narrate events of historical and cultural significance and discuss issues impacting the community. For Ashra [Muharram 1 to 10], the community has built extensions to their main mosque on II Chundrigar Road to double the capacity of the complex. Moreover, the hotels near Bohra community's Taheri Masjid have been completely booked and bus companies have also been hired to ferry attendees from different parts of the city.
  21. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi while speaking in his press conference at New York. Photo: Geo News NEW YORK: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Friday that he had 27 meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly's (UNGA) 72nd session in New York, where he presented detailed stance of Pakistan with clarity on various issues to the members of international community. Speaking in a press conference, along with Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif and Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York Maleeha Lodhi, PM Abbasi said that he also had an informal meeting with US President Donald Trump. PM Abbasi said that he informed the world that there are no terror safe havens in Pakistan, adding that in the entire world only Pakistan is engaged in the war against terrorism. The premier said that in his meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence, he informed him that Pakistan wants to see peace in Afghanistan. "We want Afghan leadership to settle their disputes," he said. He said Pakistan's viewpoint clearly and impactfully presented before the international community has been appreciated all across the board. Prime Minister Abbasi said that a dossier of 300 pages documenting human rights violations in Kashmir has been presented to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. Responding over a question he said that there will be no re-shuffle of portfolios of his cabinet members in coming days. PM's address in UNGA rime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during his address to the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on Thursday, highlighted the persistent human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK), terming India's role in the region the "most intense example of foreign occupation". In what marked his debut at the highest international diplomacy ? after taking over the office last month following former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's ouster in July ? Abbasi delivered a crisp and concise speech that touched upon almost every key factor positive for or detrimental to Pakistan's growth and development. The premier made it clear that Pakistan "is not prepared to be anyone's scapegoat", noting that Pakistan has been consistently active in the war against terrorism and has lost more to the cause than any other nation. During his 20-minute speech, he said that while Daesh has been decimated in most Middle Eastern regions, including Yemen, the group's creeping global influence is evident through the recent events around the world. Abbasi mentioned to the attendees that the UN charter has over time been eroding slowly, with unresolved conflicts taking a much larger part of the headlines than before, the rampant Indian aggression in occupied Kashmir a stark example of that.
  22. KARACHI: For the first time in more than 20 years, the Bohra Community in the city is hosting their spiritual leaders from Mumbai, India, and tens of thousands of other Bohras from around the world for the holy month of Muharram. Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifud­din, the head of the Dawoodi Bohra community, arrived in the city on September 14. Since then he has conducted a series of sermons on different themes including justice, brotherhood, forgiveness, and piety. Dr Saifuddin, who travelled from India, is expected to narrate events of historical and cultural significance and discuss issues impacting the community. For Ashra, the community has built extensions to their main mosque on II Chandrigar road to double the capacity of the complex. Moreover, the hotels near Bohra community's Taheri Masjid have been completely booked and bus companies have also been hired to ferry attendees from different parts of the city. It is expected that the traffic operations near II Chundrigar Road will remain disputed for the next two weeks.
  23. Following a horrific start to the season for his boyhood club Everton, England star Wayne Rooney, too, suffered a major blow after being slapped with a two-year driving ban and 12-month community order (100 hours of unpaid work) on the charge of driving under influence. The English footballer was arrested at 21m on 1 September while driving a 29-year-old single mother home in her black Volkswagen Beetle after a night out in Wilmslow, Northwest England. To everyone's surprise, Rooney was almost three times the legal limit when he was stopped by the police. © Reuters A breathalyser test revealed that his alcohol level was 104 microgrammes in 100 mililitres of breath. To put that in perspective, the drink-drive limit in England and Wales is 35 microgrammes per 100 mililitres of breath. After pleading guilty to the charge in court, the Everton footballer issued a statement of apology for his antics. "I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgment in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong. My statement of apology - https://t.co/51WmrVDCev — Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) September 18, 2017 I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career. Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service," he said. Rooney's community service will be reduced to 24 weeks if he undergoes a specialist driving course by February 2, 2019. He has also been fined two weeks' wages by his club Everton, reported to amount to 300,000 pounds. © Reuters The all-time leading scorer for England, Rooney announced his retirement from international football last month after 53 international goals in 119 appearances for his country. On Sunday, Rooney made something of an unhappy return to former team Manchester United for the first time since leaving the club to rejoin his boyhood side Everton, being on the wrong end of a 4-0 score line. And, with the latest court verdict on the star, the Twitter users wasted no time in poking fun at Rooney.
