Thanks for the replies guys, very helpful. So this pips system if I get it right, there's a different picture for each reputation level? Like I see on this page there's bullet_black.png and customerpips.gif. It seems a bit different from vB which has like 2 types of icons you can change and to reach full rep level there are 11 icons (5 of a given pic and 6 of another pic). Oh also where it says "IPB Newbie" those go with rep number like in vB right?
Well I'm planning to move from vB to IPBoard and I have a few features from vB that I would like to have on IPBoard. I'd like to know if any of these features are possible on IPBoard and how to achieve them (hack or built in). I'm new to IPB and some suggestions and advice would help a lot.
[*]Reputation - way to notify member of who repped you & where.
[*]Avatar size - when too big (250x250), sits on top of post. Fix? (noticed this on test installation)
[*]User Ranks - Possible? How big a logo can be?
[*]Paid Subscriptions - Once user pays he's upgraded to higher usergroup for given amount of time?
[*]Can you have someone access to admin control panel without them being an "admin"? basically an additional user-group with banning abilities.
[*]Reputation symbols ("pips") size? logos? how many? (vB has 2 rep logos)
[*]Can only admins change names? or limit it to VIP usergroups lets say and higher?
[*]Customize +/- (rep) logo?
[*]Edit comments on profile?
[*]Social groups? - if yes, notifications when someone posts in there
[*]Can u set a "trigger" so if someone logs on one account, and then logs onto another account. notify an admin or something.
[*]any kind of 'mention' hack available? (Similar to twitter's @)
[*]Advertising - How are ads managed or do you just edit template files?
[*]Hide/Thanks Hack - User needs to reply or press thank you button to view hidden content of a post
[*]Video hack - Automatically embeds links in a post from youtube, myspace, dailymotion, etc.
[*]Does IPB have official hacking site like vb.org?
