This MOD will add a new admin page that lets you easily add, change, and remove advertisements from different places on your board. Some places where advertisements could be placed are, the header, sidebar, footer, within posts (customizable on how often and where the ads are shown in viewtopic.php), etc. You should also be able to choose who views the advertisements (only guests, everyone, only registered users, etc).

Project member(s): None

Add AJAX to different parts of phpBB like inline editing posts, locking topics without a page reload, a list is generated when typing in a username in the PM to field, adding poll options, etc. This should work on most major browsers and if users have javascript disabled, the current/default method (reloading the page) should still work.

wGEric wrote: Custom Profile Fields
Project member(s): None

This MOD will let an admin create custom profile fields. The field types should include textareas, text input boxes, radio buttons, and checkboxes. You should be able to edit these profile fields from the edit profile page as well as be able to see what users have put in these fields on the view profile page. Admins should also be able to edit what users have put in these fields from the ACP.

Other things you may want to consider when applying for this MOD is how others could hook into the code (simplified function calls / API to add/remove profile fields), and an upgrade path to 3.0

I submitted request for developping this one, because I already was thinking about such a Mod. (but nothing done yet ...) :)
I hope I may develop it ... :D lol

wGEric wrote: Warnings/Ban Manager
Project member(s): None

Although there are some MODs like this (one by GUI, one by Wooly Spud, and one by neils), these date back to 2003, and this is another highly requested feature for our database.

This MOD should provide a way to send users a warning--basically a "you better stop that" message for when they're doing something wrong. This should be accessible by moderators and administrators. When a warning is issued, there should be a place for the moderators to leave (or not leave) a message regarding why the warning was issued--this can be PM'ed (or e-mailed) to the user if the moderator so chooses to notify them. These warnings should have a time when they will expire--and after x warnings, a certain ban-related action should take place.
The MOD should also provide a location to manage a list of banned users, including the ability to set timed bans (bans will timeout after a certain length of time has passed, or at a certain timepoint), and be able to list a reason for the ban that will be displayed to the user, and a private reason for it that will only be displayed to the administrators.

This MOD should have an EXTENSIVE Admin Settings interface, as well as maintain a 3.0 upgrade path. The admin settings should mostly deal with what to do when a warning is issued, after how many warnings to set bans, and what kind of ban to automatically set, etc. Basically, put as many configuration options as possible here. ;)


Since everyone seems to be doing it, I'll say that I applied to be developing this one and I hope I get it :)

Please keep all "I want to apply for this project" messages via PM. :wink: IMHO it's unnecessary. However, if wGEric or smithy_dll say you can go ahead and post those kind of messages, go ahead, if it's necessary.

Oops, missed that one. Thanks for pointing it out.

Is it in the MOD Database? No. The whole point of this is to get MODs like that one (or variations of them) into the MOD Database.

yea just like what happened with the visual confirmation thing. sessions changed a whole lot from 2.0.x though. so it wouldnt be a simple back port. it would require major rewriting so you might as well start from scratch.

If I already contacted smithy_dll, should I also contact wGEric, or isn't that necessary?
