You just set the forum permissions to read only.

a) this is a lot of work
b) users could still login and write PMs and stuff

Re: Automatic move banned members for the banned group

I like that... Some kind of soft-delete.
You bann a user and he is moved to an appropriate special group... Where you can set Avatar and stuff...

We make that by hand at the moment since we dont delete users but just bann them (so we don't loose IP-Adresses and post assignments to the user id).

Re: PMs from friends only

Admins/moderators need to be able to get PMs from everyone
Nope... We have a contact form for that. But anyway. That was just an example.

Actually the "friends" list has no further function. This would be one...

Re: Terms & Conditions

That's different.
Is it? I guess you having a board yourself. How often did you changed your board name in the past?

The T&Cs are probably not changed by most board owner
...since they simply can't.
(or don't know how)

And actually it wouldn't be much efford to implement that...

Re: Word count and character counts on post

Well... the character limit is not a Mod, so why should the display of this limit for the end user should be a mod.
It's quite annoying to edit a post with too many charachters if you have to click submit everytime you want to check, if you matched the limit...

Re: +1, Like, or something similar

Even it's it's fair and more logical? It IS fair, if you can just thank a persons post... Even if the admin could disable the dislike or both? Too complicated to programm. What if you have a like/dislike system and you switch the "dislike" off... I prefer something that represents more realistic op...

Database-Update (complete)

Would be great if you could select between
a) just phpBB-Tables
b) complete Database
and maybe...
c) tables with phpBB-prefix

Re: Removing old PMs

but none seem to consider the fact that PMs are never deleted from the database. I think this is very unfortunate.
Why?

Re: Different Permissions

Which kind of options do you think that would be appropriate, d@ve? Actually... Look at the options at ACP => Board Configuration... Most of these things are permission kind of things: - maximum charachters per post - signature length - avatar size - folders for PNs - post edit time - maximum recip...

Re: Default User

I know that there is a KB topic. But
a) as Amigo said: It just has advantages
b) it wouldn't be much afford to implement
c) we have other "special" account (bot-users, a guest-user) so why not have a default user

Re: Terms & Conditions

As it's something you're unlikely to change on a regular basis I'm not sure that would be necessary. Do you change the name of the board or the "board description" on a regular base? I don't but still there is an editable option in the ACP. I edit the terms & condition at least twice a year. And it...

Re: New PM Management

I was aware of b) the second I clicked on "submit", but you cant edit the ideas (at least I haven't found the edit button). But the actual idea is a): A facebook like PM-Management... Like a "Thread" for each user. That option already exists as long as the recipient hasn't opened the PM yet. Deletin...

Re: Alert when leaving page with form filled with text

I've seen such feature on several forum, its very annoying. I've lost many posts in many phpBB forums, since I clicked on "Submit" and close the window instantly, when the site was loaded... But if other people have submitted answers during typing, the post won't be submitted but the post form ist ...
