Alright, since I'm literally writing my own message board system(Fortnet Message Boards, thanks to Helena for the name XD), I'm wondering what you all would think are features that you normally would ask for that other forum software's currently don't offer. I have a list already and if there is something cool that isn't there already, please add to it. :)

Current list of features
  • Users Online
  • Multi-Quote
  • Find all posts by user
  • Find all topics by user
  • Unread posts since last visit
  • Online/Offline
  • PM entire user groups
  • Quick links
  • Profile Fields
  • Delete post
  • Close poll, not topic
  • User's current location on the board
No Live Preview as of yet


OLD screen shot previews removed...

HA! My ava is in there.xDD

Anywho,I didn't now you were making your own message board man.That's pretty tight.At the moment the only thing I can think of for an inbuilt feature would be a money code with a donation feature and an Inventory in your post details where members can check other members items.

That might be impossable as I don't know if you can code stuff like that yet,but I know for a fact that there's hundreds of people here on IF/ZB looking for just that feature in a message board and probably on alot of other forum softwares also.So even though it might take ake you along time I'm pretty sure it would def. be worth it in the end when it starts drawing in thousands of members within a couple months.=P

Just my 2 cents though......

o_0 really? Well then god sir,You've already caught my attention with your upcoming software.xD

Now if you could only do something like for ZB until yours comes out.LOL

Anywho,good luck with this project man.I can't wait too see thefinished result as I'm sure it will be great.I remember way back when Devueax was making his own software and kept the hype up for it for the longest time...and then he decided not to do it and just dropped the project,made me sad.xD

Yes really. XD Glad I caught your attention, seeing as that's my intention for everyone. :P

Yeah I don't plan on dropping mine. :O Just when I get going on the RPG I'm not going to be working on it that much.


Also just wrote up a users online code, NOT a users online today code but who are actually viewing the forum. :)


EDIT: HA! Just wrote up a users online in the past 24 hours code!

Weird... I thought I had signed up there before. Looks real amazing man, especially since I know you only recently learned php lol. Makes me want to try something like it myself (not enough time to do by myself though). You could start up a rival service to ZN once it's done ;) I'll be keeping an eye on this :)

You probably did and I dumped all the DB tables...it was required.

:) ZN is way to advanced for me, it will take me years to get that good, and I've only been doing this a week.
