MOD Title: Milestone Congratulations
MOD Description: Enables the setup of milestones for members to reach. These may consist of (numbers freely adjustable): Making the 1000th post, creating the 1000th topic or registering as the 50th user. The user accomplishing a goal will be displayed on the index page until the next milestone is reached. Upon reaching a milestone the counter automatically increments by an (once again) adjustable amount.

For every accomplished goal a database entry is created which can be used with medals, cash or points of any kind; also there's a new "history page" that displays all milestones.
MOD Version: 1.2.8

Add-On for Simple Points System: http://mods.martectx.de/simple_points_system.zip

This mod is a remake of Beitragsgratulierer for phpBB2.

Added some screenshots.

For you native speakers: Is it correct to say "The 3000. post" or should that read "The 3000th post"?

It would be much easier to say: "Post number 3000 was made by MartectX, congradulations!" You can totally avoid any "th" "nd" "st", etc.

I might also suggest placing commas in for delimiters every thousand count. i.e. instead of 1000000 (1 million), it would display 1,000,000. Makes it a bit easier to read for larger numbers, and since people usually gloss over the statistics section anyhow, they don't tend to let their eyes grab everything down there.

Thanks for you suggestions, but I won't do comma separation because that would be insconsistent with the rest of the statistics.

It's in the SQL query. I'll look into including a separate file from where you can set it more easily in a later revision.

1.0.0 RC1
- Small display change (1000th)
- Automatically set valid next goal at installation

Darkonia, try it out: It should work as easy as catching a turtle now!

Download the latest version and upload root/set_congrat_goal.php to your phpBB3 directory and execute it in your browser.

Tell me what happened and if it worked, please (and delete the script afterwards)!

Very nice mod, but why don't you make the number of posts in a fat font? I think it would be better, because the other numbers in the statistic are also fat!

And I'm missing the different group colours from my board. Like: Normal users are displayed in black, moderators are displayed in green and administrators are displayed in red!

In your mod is every user in the same colour displayed - also moderators and administrators...
