  • Scoring for new topics, posts and other events like completing the user profile, upload avatar etc. (
  • Highlight searchwords in postings
  • User abilities by post count or user level: if user has <100 post, they can't post links (try the latest version of pun_antispam; it allows to hide signatures and websites if post count < N).

  • Simple registration: on registration make password input optional (or disable it at all). Generate random password and send it to e-mail, if not password given in the form. Username may be optional too (authorize by email). This may be included into pun_e_mail_auth
  • Cache: the whole page or php-array.
  • Automatic timezone update: compare the server's time and user's local time (via JS) and display a dialog to the user to confirm timezone settings update. (discussion)

  • OpenID login: request, release
  • Avatar system like the one in phpBB: 1. remote avatar (with possibility to disable this feature) / 2. possibility to create a gallery of avatars by uploading them to a specific folder; adding subfolders has the effect of sorting the avatars in subcategories ⇒ pcr_avatar
  • Move user title below the username, so it shows User/Title/Avatar instead of User/Avatar/Title
  • Private Board –> Push to Login Page - What I mean is that rather than just changing the permissions so when you come to the main index it just says “Board is empty” or whatever you change that text to, it would be nice to be able to enable a security extension that if not logged on it would force you to the login page with a custom message added to it of your choosing.
