If it's similar to the static pages modification it's all I need ;)

Member pays the subscription and becomes premium member for lets say a year. After that, the member will be a regular member unless he/she pays for another year.

+1 but for Autogroups. An option to add users to a group for a predetermined time period would be useful and has been requested several times in the past.

Also, if it was in the Autogroups extension adding a payment trigger to it may be easier than adding the temporary group feature to a Paypal extension.

Massive +1 for Auto-groups. Nathan did an absolutely fantastic job with this MOD, a must-have for any forum owner.

From all those 4 candidates I think only Pages are suitable for every forum owner.

How did you come up with that?
Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Because Static Pages = content = SEO -> everyone craves for SEO.

Because everyone needs at least one information page e.g. an "About Us" page.

On the other hand, not everyone needs Auto Groups, Paypal Donations and Posting Templates. In my opinion, Auto Groups may be the coolest atm, but it's not the most essential. Information Pages are so essential to a forum owner that they could be a core feature.

Nope. I for one dislike most things that are related to SEO because it's mainly BS.

Not everyone needs that but it could at least be used for imprints in Germany.

+1

I chose Auto Groups, Pages would be a close second place. I have zero interest in Paypal/Donation.
Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Why do you talk about everyone?

I don't like any of SEO features and I don't need any custom pages.
I think that it won't be too difficult to create a new extension for custom pages by yourself.

Could you please explain what BS means?
