Most pointless Extension?

Post by paulie » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:43 pm

Firstly, I'd just like to say I have a good few extensions added to my Forum and therefore I'd like to express my thanks to those who dedicate their spare time to writing them.

But, I do sometimes look at Extension requests and think 'Why would you want to even do that' or even 'What's the point of that'?

What are some of the daftest, most pointless - or even just plain weird - Extension / Modification requests you've seen?

Your subject doesn't mention ideas at all, but your text is directed at only those - can you please change your post accordingly?

AJ - Why are you trying to move this to "Ideas"? - the OP is quite clear that he is referring to Extensions

That's correct. Somehow my mind merged "requests" with ideas, but indeed they're different things. But it's still not clear if extensions or requests are meant - subject and text differ.

One persons 'pointless extension' is another persons 'must have' its all down to individual taste and needs.

Any extension 'reported' as 'pointless' will likely raise the hackles of its supporters and end up as a slag-fest, hence locking
