I think it would be great and no so hard to implement a new feature in 2.1
I still don't own a licence for IPB /But I will soon :cool:/, but as an user of IPB's large forums, I can see a small problem/missing feature.
Here it is:
When I am registering in a big forum with a lots of users it is asking me to choose a nick name. My name is Victor and I am usually trying my name. But Victor is a common name, so it is not free in a forum with more than 2000 users.
So there is such a function in some of the free web based email like Yahoo!.
You are typing your choosen nick name and there is a small link after or under the field:
"Check if this nickname is free"
I mean it would be easier for a new registration... On the same screen, without any refresh or clicks.
I want "Victor", so I am typing it and clicking on that link. If it is free - OK.
If not - a small text like:
"This username is already taken. Please, choose another."
I don't think it is so hard to be done. Just one check in the _users table ;)
Have a nice day and I hope you'll think about it.
I believe Matt already has plans to put in a similar idea :)
Just like the signup form for GMail! :)
Well, as far as I can see there is an interest about it :)
I hope Matt will read it. In fact this is not so important.
It is not so hard to be implemented too /I think/...
But it's really useful. One of those little things which make your browsing easier ;)
