[quote]feature request: Would be possible for ranks not to be message controlled, but a combination of messages, time registered and karma?

So a user with very high karma and long time registered, but poor post count (althought pretty useful) would have a better ranking than a +1 spammer :)

I would like the option to define the formulas for rank grown not only messages, i think it would not be that hard would it? assigning \'points\' to rank, like 550 for advance boarder

examples:
[messages]=rank
[messages]+[time registered(in days)]-(2x[bans])=rank

What I would use on my site (i believe)
[messages]+([time registered]/10)+(([karma]/10)+1)-(2x[bans])=rank

I believe this would be pretty simple, wouldn\'t it? allow admin to do the formula based on the variables you allow them to use (message count, time registered, karma, bans, ...)

What would be awesome, but would make it pretty much harder B) is to provide some \'if\' option, because I may want negative karma to have an higger effect in rank than positive karma maybe, if someone has -100 karma, I may not want it becoming -10 on it\'s rank count...

Would love to see something like this :)[/quote]

[quote]Fast topic creation:

Right now, you cannot create new threads from recent discussion, or my discussion, default tabs, they being default is cool for me, is what I do first in forums, press the \'read new messages\' button. Althought, it\'s a crap having to navigate to categories to create a new post, that you know where you want.

I would suggest to create a special post form for these sections, would be same as the normal post form, but with an added camp, a dropdown list of forums and subforums, where that message would go.

This would be a great timesaver when you already know the forum you\'re posting.

Also would be great if default tab, could be selective ;)[/quote]

[quote]Better split function:

Right now, when I hit on split, I get the splitted post, on a new thread alone, and the rest stays on the old one...

This is strange, and tedious to move an offtopic conversation on a separate one, as you have to go splitting and merging all these posts...

I would prefer, either easy way, from this post is a new thread, or elaborated way, checkboxed messages go in new thread[/quote]

[quote]Hi there, I\'m very excited about the new FB2 - Keep up the good work

Will there be the opportunity for users to contribute by email (operating like Yahoo groups for example) and to opt in/out to receiving those emails. Contributing on the site itself I have found is restricted to a core of regular users coming to the content whereas with the email option the content comes to the user\'s desktop and a reply is simply responding to the email.

I completely understand that it\'s probably a development nightmare but for the sites I run in \'competition\' with Yahoo it would make it a killer social networking app. It\'s something I\'d be willing to pay for as a commercial app if that\'s going to make a difference.

Your development expertise and the time you spend in this is appreciated by us all.

[quote]I spent 20 mins looking for a thread to do a merge. It\'s horrible to work with it! it needs to be more user friendly and functional.
First, you should be able to introduce threadID, instead of having to lurk for the thread dunno if id is general, or different for each cat, if is different, you need also catid input (IPB merge works this way).
Also, instead of an only list, would be possible to have sortable list depending on cats? so, I have a dropdown box with categories, and depending on the one I select, the listbox has only the thread on that categorie.
Filtering by author and date would be awesome also :)[/quote]

[quote]Custom forum images: This is a great addon for IPB already, I use them in [url=http://www.vocesdelvicio.com/classic]my old forums[/url] , you can assign custom images (on defined folder) to each forum, so instead of default icon for template, the foruls where you have an image selected would show that one.

This looks awesome, and is just one extra camp in each forum...
It uses 2 images, sharing name, but one with a prefix/cue \'example_new\' for example, this is the image the system will use when new messages in forum, if not, default name.[/quote]

I can see two ways of doing, both of them, controlled by \"HTML allowed\" admin params for users, and forums, so in an HTML allowed forum, a not allowed user could not post.
And 2 ways, parse all message, with an HTML checkbox at the end of it (current IPB style) or old way, with an HTML tag, whatever inside is parsed as HTML, also we can have a list of blocked expressions (admin defined)[/quote]

I would like SUGG002 too, in spain we use day-month-year instead of month-day-year, and is a shame not being able to customize the output :(

SUGG004 and SUGG005, have my support too, I kinda drop rss feeds where I can\'t read full post, should be an option for the site admin, both things, number of posts to show and way of doing
