Re: [RFC] profile_update hook

I'll post the same thing here: It would also be nice if the "before" hook were able to deny changes alltogether (or reject parts of the changes). A GEO Mod might check the entered location for example, or one might wish to restrict the Homepages to some special domains.

Re: [RFC] user_update_name hook

How about a simple notification that "something" in the user profile was changed? I agree that some mods need the name change, but other mods might need other changes as well. One could simply have a hook that carries the information of the column names that were changed along with the new values an...

Re: [RFC] user_add hook

It should be possible to deny adding the user through the "before" hook. A mod might set conditions that must be met, before a user can be added, for example it might check some data entered in custom profile fields (beyond just checking for the correct format, i.e. it might compare a field for memb...

Re: Plugins / Hooks Section in ACP

If you leave this up to the mods then the question is rather: Will the Mod Author be able to foresee all possible other mods that use the same hook and position his mod correctly in the execution order for all of them to work? I think there should be some way of sorting the mods so that Mod A can be...

Re: [RFC] user_delete hook

The same thing goes for deleting topics, forums and posts since mods may need to delete data along with it. It may be sensible to also be able to cancel a deletion process as well, sometimes the user may only be deleted if certain circumstances are met (for example the user may have to pay his debts...
