Hey, i run a small social network and i've been slowly working on rebuilding the site using PHPBB. Is this something people would like to see released as a mod? as you can see its quite a hefty project so its some time off, if anyone is interested in getting involved then let me know :)

The features the finished version will have include:

New index page summerising all site activity, arcade champions , latest pictures etc

Entire site & forum will be optimised for search engines and conversion rates.

Profiles

-Activity Feed
-Main Profile description
-Photos & Videos (with tagging)
-Facebook style wall
-Status Updates
- My Profiles (A page showing breif info on their other social profiles)
- General Forum activity
- User Ratings
- Friends (with how you know them)

Edit profile
simpe pages for editing profile & option to tell your friends once when you update it

Browse/explore
- Browse Members
- Top rated
- online now
- search by name/keyword/location
- Search using contact list (msn, gmail etc) & invite non members
- Browse Images & video
- top rated
- most viewed
etc

Users will be able to rate and comment all content.

Arcade - Arcade plugin

Chat - intergration with 123 flash chat (site owner will have to pay licance fee etc but all the authentication etc will be done here)
Will add authentication and administration features for other chat systems too.

Groups - Similar to facebook style groups

Potential features:

Profile applications (very basic system for this)

This is something could look at after the first release, Dating and these social network/profile sites are 2 different things realy.

Couldn't agree more, since mps mod is like abandoned now it would be great if you can work with primetime CMS cuz it is easy to customize,
Also why cant you intergrate it with a free chat? (ajax by blueimp)

Im going to set up options in the admin panel so that user can choose between a few different chat systems if its something people want. At the moment ive just been doing this for myself, for my own site. but i figured if its something people want then may aswell release it.

Request: Make footer and header match the page ( optional to use forum header and footer via ACP ).

Had something simliar with phpbb2. Would be interesting to see this one come alive for phpbb3. goodluck. :)

yeah i want it as well, idea i awesome :) .. Only thing i dont really like in phpbb compared to other board system is the profile page.. I guess you will revamp profile page but itl be great if you can make it look something like IPB profile page.. There was mod which got abandoned later (http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1190985)..

And like one of teh guy suggested atleast look into primetime mod which got validated recently.. social networking mod combined with this will be awesomly awesome :mrgreen:

Primetime will eventually have it's own profile system. so dont think that may be a good idea.



Think profile pages and widgets :D
