This is my first day of making this mod, and i though id make the topic now to get some positive feedback.

I am making a sort of Download System mod, which will basically let users downloads files, or upload there own. (Verified by Admin, or maybe a Moderator)
Here is a list of other features id like to incorporate:
- Categorized Downloads
- IP Tracking and Banning
- # of Downloads Tracking
- User level Restrictions (For downloading AND Adding a new download)
- Group Level Restrictions (same as above)
- Download Descriptions, Comments, etc
- Advanced Admin Panel - Edit Downloads, Add Downloads, Remove Downloads, Block IPs, Manage users (and groups) Download Privileges

I'm up for more feature suggestions, or just positive comments. (negative too :D )

Sounds like quite an endeavor. Before you spend a good deal of time on this, have you glanced at the Attachment Mod?

Thats partially the reason im starting this mod, i was originally going to use that mod, but i really dont like the layout of it. So then i decided to make my own mod, and add soem more features, but make the layout nice and simple.

No, I just meant that there was already an Attachment Mod, one of, if not THE most involved mod ever written for phpbb. Just making sure you had already seen it.

But yeah, choices are great. Good luck dood!

Thanks, i think after i figure out some of the features i need to do and write the instructions, and make the admin page for adding downloads, i should be able to release the code and files.

A cool feature would be upload/download limits depending on your rank or group - like if you're 3rd rank you can only download 30mb of data within 24 hours or something. This would help any bandwidth issues.
