Feature Requests

Alright guys, so this holiday I finally got around to building a new computer and now have some real development power. The development server on my old setup began to get buggy and laggy, causing major delays in development... but now I have my server back up and running at full potential. So with that, I'm ready to make some changes. Some I promised a long time ago, some are new. Back when TQC launched, I promised input from the community for all development... that stands true to this day. I know we've been slow recently, but with these updates launched I plan on running a [paid] ad campaign to get us more registrations. Believe it or not, we actually get thousands of hits a day, and continue to grow, but our registration count is down.

So, my features that I'm implementing, some mentioned before:
  • Thank You/Like System. This will add a facebook-ish "like" system to the forum and will allow you to simply thank members. This will add to a user's reputation and also have a separate thank you count.
  • Update to latest Simple Machines software. This has stability fixes, new features, and also security updates.
  • Fixes to reputation. Reputation will be recalculated on launch. All posts will be recalculated, and bars will be reset properly. The reputation was miscalculated from the old rep system
  • Splash screen if you're not registered when you first view the site. Many sites have a popup sort of window that asks you to register. I'd like to implement this so that more people register right off the bat. If you're logged in/already a member, of course you won't be bothered.
  • Add repair features to the admin panel, so that any admin can repair the database should there be an issue.

I may have to temporarily remove the classifieds section, as it always causes database errors and is not fully compatible with the newest SMF versions, but I'd rather have a very stable forum.

Let me know features you want, I'll work to get them implemented.

Decided we will be going on to the beta of SMF2.1. This will limit some features, but in the long run be a good transition. Number 1 priority is chat...as long as its solid I will bump to the beta.

As far as classifieds go, I'm ok with 86'in it for now, not like it used at all. The most used feature is chat.  Let the upgrade begin...
