IPB 2.2 Suggestions - Long List


Guest Luke

Recommended Posts

Could we also have the option for the Custom profile fields to put a minimum length of what's allowed and option to restrict what can be put in. I have 3 fields on my registration page ( [*] Find Us? How did you find us? You have more than 100 characters to use, but DO NOT SPAM these. Oh and if you put "admin" or something like it, that is no longer vaild. [*] Members How BEST do you believe we could get members? Please be reasonable. You have more than 100 characters to use. but DO NOT SPAM these. [*]Who refered you? A simple description of who on this board (user name) refered you to us. Try to be truthful! I just had someone join today that put spam in all three, it's not the first time either. Could we have the option to "filter" what can be put in. If not, would that require a rewrite of the database table that deals with that/the PHP code it self (and I do mean large change).

Some really good logical suggestions there, obviously I can appreciate its in some cases easier said than done.

Also, I've always wondered why IPS dont buy the rights to some of the modifications out there, especially ones with 0 or very low query counts... then just have the option to switch it on or not.

Dont get me wrong though... I have no idea of the relaity of the behind the scenes of all this.

Really do hope Matt and the team have a good think about that list and some of the other suggestions in the forum.

I'm going to be honest i like both list here although most of these can be easily be downloaded and modded but it would be great to have them as features instead of mods some things i like were the following:

- Forum Title (# viewing)
- Multiple Choice & Public Poll's
- Absolute Ban System
- Auto-Ban in the Warn System

Everything else i think would be a little too much for the server load and should stay as mods

Could you guys also try to speed the RTE up? I can bearly even post there, or make any topic multi-mods (like posting: moderator action move topic, in a topic (using addreply). The images don't even load, sometimes causing me to not be able to get to the forum for several minutes. It is startiing to tick me off, and that is not very easy.

Once cached it loads pretty fast for me.

I would like to share my suggestions too.

- RSS feeds of the forum topics only have an option to include the first post of the topic. However there is no need to export the first post again and again when somebody replies to the topic. There should be an option to include the text of the last post.

- Moderators should be able to review/modify the topic ratings. They're easily abused by posters to gather attention to their topics. There also must be a minimum threshold of votes before displaying the average topic rating publicly.

- It would be nice to see the on-the-fly "inline" topic changing function enabled on the "View New Posts" page.

- When a search result includes a post inside a massive multi-page topic, it's a little bit frustrating and tedious to locate the matched message. Favourable way is to show the link to the matched post instead of the topic.

Hope that none are referenced before.
Thanks :)

The ones that I think definitely need to be implemented are:

Multiple Choice and Public Polls,
Invisible Topics / Posts Visible to Author,
Make Year Optional for Birthday,
Reason for Editing a Post,
Restrict PM / Chat / Signature Abilities via Warn Panel,
Log IP Address on Login Attempt,
Auto Login on Register,
What PM did you reply to?,
Reply to PM :: Additional Option :: Delete PM,
Minimum Post Length,
Combine / Refine / Cleanup UCP,
Topic / Post Balancing,
Brute Force Protection,
IP Group Sorting,
IP Instance Control,
IP Banning Notes,
Member Name Banning Wildcards,
IP Banning Options,
Page Statistics,
Poll :: Hide Results, and
Favorite Queries.

I don't think the others are needed right now though. :)

All of those would be cool and I would like them as well.

Moderation Center would be a huge plus.

I'd like to add a second vote for:
- PM Threads
- Topic Moderators

but I'll happily see any of the other proposed new features added in as well :)

I've seen Vb eat more posts with their stupid fast reply then anything else. I would be very displeased if IPB implemented something so crappy.



Actually there is a way to do fast reply with ajax that wouldnt be so bad. When you hit submit it could check to see if your post will be on the same page you're posting, if any posts are before yours (or missing), or if any have changed and make the adjustments. If your post ends up on the next page, redirect the page (the normal way) to the page where your post will be. Basically you use ajax to make the post and update the page ONLY if the change is minute, and if it's big enough just redirect like normal.

I forgot the moderation center, that would be helpful as well. :)



Speaking of which I need to update soon. Will be something for me to do once I get things situated at home and work since I just moved...

Brandon you wanna use the mod center :ph34r:? I can be reasonable ;)

[b]- Permalink[/b]



I know this would be kind of a pain, but it would be nice for the whole board to use a permalink structure. Include topic titles (alpha numeric characters only) in the URL for search spiders to pick up on. I've done something similar for most places on my forum, but it's something that needs to be done for everything, including redirects.



Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!

well I mentioned this 3 times

1) when 1.3 was coming
2) when 2.0 was coming
3) when 2.1 was coming

I hope this gets added this time around

ban a user via warn panel

and not only ban him but have it like the modq and suspension where you can select

ban indefinitly or ban for so many hours or days

it might be skin wise a bit of work but this would be nice

also as well add this same thing inside acp edit profile section

-----

as for Cy's ideas

the IP logging is 1 thing I surely love to see in 2.2

edit reason as well in 2.2 or 3.0

I like alot of his ideas thats why the ones that are mods i use them


I do got to say 1 thing though

bfarber and Matt been doing a damn good job together on the IPB product

2.2 acp looks awesome

:thumbsup:

Option to ban a user via IP, Email, would be fantastic. It's not helpful when I am away and something happens that an IP ban needs to take place, and I'm not there to do it. And I don't want to give my moderators ACP access....

Account suspension is good, but the problem is moderators suspend an account that member can just register again and start over....

I think this would prove very popular.

I doubt many mods would know how to go about banning a variable IP. you would have to teach them how to look up the assigned range, then ban that range, etc. It might be a redundant feature for all mods and one that is too powerful to be available to anyone but admins

Email ban for mods might be an alright idea...

Another suggestion (also includes the Permalink suggestion):

Complete Integration of Lo-Fi

This includes:

[*]Friendly URLs. These are already implemented into Lo-Fi, so why not just port them to the main modules? (check this by clicking 'Lo-Fi Version' in the bottom of this page... ;)) [*]Light Skin. This could be simply integrated as a normal skin. It could also be made a separated system, but I like the skin-type integration more.

Would be ok with me, my mods know a lot about this stuff, and have suggested how handy it would be..


EDIT: improved registration visual code would be good, bots are getting past the current one.
