We all know the stupidity of the vBites, and one of the main things keeping (some) from switching to IPB is the (My God) Reputation System, so IPS should make one for IPB, but More advanced and stylish than vBulletin's Rep Sys.
Another useful one is 'Demote user after 00 Days of Inactivity', like if said user hasn't posted or been online in 00 days they get demoted, I know I would put it to good use.
(replace 00 with number of days)
I have an SQL query to do that. I run it as a CRON job every month. It moves members into a group that has limited permissions.
I designed it for IPB v2.0, I haven't tested it in v2.1 yet.
It would be nice to have as a default though, I mean, we already got the 'Promote user when he / she reaches 00 Posts', so this could work out too.
I like the idea. If a person is inactive though, how would he ever trigger it to run? Seems like this ought to be set up as a task or cron job run once a day.
I recall a mod that did something of the sort. It woudl automatically demote members to an inactive group after x days of inactivity. Once that user logged in again, they were automatically promoted back to full member status.
I, myself, am completely against having a built-in reputation system ... leave it as a mod.
