View Full Version : Things I am thinking of adding

I liked the discussion on the integration for the forums so I am establishing a thread to consider things I am thinking about putting on the site.

These modifications are simply designed to make the experience better.

Here is the next idea:

Auto Birthday thread

This hack automatically creates a birthday thread in the forum you select. Only members that allow their date of birth to be displayed will be listed, and age will be shown only for those who has choosen that. Members are shown in colors defined in usergroup settings. You can choose to exclude inactive members. Several users can be set as greeters (used randomly when posting). Thread will be created first time when someone loads forumhome after midnight (by server time).

Obviously, we could merge these with the overall birthday thread after a day. Personally I think people like to have their own.

I like the idea of people having their own thread and then they will be merged. The only problem with an automatic thread creation is that it takes the fun out of being the first person to create a thread for someone.

That's true, I didn't know if it was fun or kind of a burden for folks :lol:

08-29-2007, 02:52 PM
I think it's both, depending on who you're starting the thread for. :P

That is a neat feature, but like Hannah, I like the idea of starting a thread for people myself.

08-29-2007, 02:53 PM
That's cool with me, I just know if it is someone people don't know, a new member perhaps, people feel awkward starting it for someone.

At least that is what I have heard. Mostly, I just wanted them started in a timely manner and the computer loves everyone. :lol:

I don't know, I think we're pretty good about keeping on top of it. I agree it cuts down on the spontaneity of the birthday thread. As the site grows, however, I think it's something we may want to consider in the future. :D

Sounds good to me, I will scrap the idea for now.

Okay, how about this one :D

I usually use Launch at work - less commercials. It could be fun, though.

This would be totally commercial free as far as I know.

Just another local mod to help people waste time.

I'm all about time wasters. :lol:

I think I am going to do this, I read the mod completely and it seems to be stable and will be ugraded with the forums software. :rock:
