Been digging and digging and it seems that nothing exists for this except for a few abandoned projects for ts2 and phpbb3.0.
this is what I ultimately want / need but it needs updating. Perhaps someone is willing to take it over?
I need something that lets me manage permissions for users through the forums of my community on phpbb3.1 for teamspeak 3.
Ideally it could put people into matching group names based on their group name, and other features as well, but even just a plugin that allowed for auto assigning registered users to a specific TS3 group vs being in a default guest group I would set up would be great.
Thanks for any time spent deving such a tool for the community.
