Premium subscriptions, gifted to other users, are surprisingly popular among my community and enables my forum subscription service to bring in significant additional revenue. It's currently enabled on my forum with an aging vBulletin plugin, but I'm considering switching to IP.Board and IP.Nexus and was curious to know if such a feature/plugin exists or, if not, how difficult it would be to modify the software myself to enable this functionality?
My blog runs on WordPress, and I'm considering moving my comment system over to Disqus. Have there been any efforts to integrate Disqus with an IP.Board user database, perhaps with IP.Converge, via Disqus' Single-Sign On API?
I was just exploring the notification system myself and came across this issue. Can notification preferences be set for everyone by default? As a user, I'd expect to be "notified" of everything by default, then throttle back notifications I find I don't want.
