I'm on Skype and MSN. However, I only work 2-4 days a month, and this weekend I'm working. Smile It'll take me a day or two to recover from doing actual work, so I'll be availabe next week some time... If you haven't figured it out by then drop me a PM and we'll get together to try and solve things. Smile
BTW, if we're going to add an administrative control panel interface, maybe we should put an option in for the automatic IP bans? I don't think they are a good idea, but if they're optional, I shouldn't stand in anyone's way..... thoughts (anyone)?
Ok, I will look for you this week(you can add me in msn, my profile has my address).
Personally, I like http://www.dnsstuff.com/
a bit better than network tools, but that's just my thing. Something else to possibly include (since a lot of the spammers seem to use it also) is the ICQ field.
Mabey the guys could have it send you both links in the email? That would be good, then you could pick which ever one you want.
Ya, mabey in the adminCP version we could have options to turn everything off except for the sections that are only needed for registering(username/password/email/captcha).
Adding an ACP interface is not difficult - check the MODs I've done (link to one in my signature) for a "template" for doing them, complete with language file changes. The only time it gets to be a bit more difficult is if you want to add a separate applet for doing it, rather than attaching to the existing admin_board.php script.
The important thing to remember is that any text displayed MUST be done through the language file interface, or your MOD isn't going to survive submission. No hard-coded English text allowed, except for certain hard errors that this sort of MOD shouldn't encounter. And template changes need to be as generic as possible (searching for template variables, for example, rather than whole lines), so that they can be installed in non-subSilver templates.
First candidates for an ACP interface: $cut_off, email Y/N.
