Wish list of new features

Postby RBarnes » Fri Feb 04, 2005 2:31 pm

Nat, as I was reading a couple posts here today I really wish we had a recommend feature to recommend a post (see yahoo’s message boards or the feedback on SlashDot.org). There were a couple people who made points that I personally thought went well above those made in the average post. Being able to recommend that post would also show some people who may feel they are getting “slammedâ€

I believe there are mods out there that do this, but I haven't investigated them because they fork the code from the default version. Whenever the software needs to be updated you have upgrade the base code then reapply the patches. I have enough problems keeping the code up to date with new versions and the simple 2 line patch that reverses the default post order.

This forum is simply PHP & a MySQL database, so anything is possible given the time to code it. If someone were to volunteer to make improvements...

In addition to one for the entire site, there should be one for each of the
individual forums.

Nat: I've done some PHP and MySql - drop me an email and we can talk about me helping to maintain the site. I know it's a pain - I wouldn't want to have to do it alone.
