Some doubt about an idea for a feature...

Post by PUOJACKZ »

I was thinking to submit, in the feature tracker, an idea for a option that will insert a little legend in the categories and forums (not in thread), to let the users to understand the limit of the category/forum.

The idea was to create a little division of the main table where is written the category/topic title and moderators, inserting some icons to declare if in that forum COPPA Users can see forums/posts, if is in NewsGroup mode (a feature that I have notified in feature tracker some times ago), if the forums have a pre-emptive moderation (approving/unapproving posts), and so on.
So, what are yours ideas about it?

I thought there was a feature like this already? Isn't that how the "Forum Rules" appears on the "Discuss 2.2" forum? Or are you wanting something different from that?

We can, however, submit feature requests to the feature tracker for the release after 2.2 (presumably 2.4?), which may be what Puojackz was thinking of.

Infact, my idea was so. But, before do it, i'd like to receive some feedback in order to post a feature with a lot of userful sub-options. Inserting unoptimized requests in Feature Tracker is bad IMHO.
My idea was to:

- In ACP, let the admin to assign, in an option, like.. Warning system deactivate in that category/forum, or only no-COPPA users and so on, some icons (traffic light-like icons for example, but customizable by the user), that explain suddenly something about moderations of the category/forum, type of category forum, who could not entry and so on.

This could be userful, maybe, for a little user that try to join a category but he/she see that is not possible. If there's this option, he could see the icon and understand that he cannot join.

IMO, it's something that you might want to consider as a MOD, but doesn't sound that practical for the actual software from what you have described so far.

You need to remember that in 2.2 most of the options are not a simple yes/no per forum, they are yes/no per group/user in each forum so it is not such a simple thing as you seem to think. There is also a similar "you can/cannot...." set of information on the viewforum/viewtopic pages already.

If the coder team pass all my ideas, maybe improving the existing ones, probably the 2.3/2.4 will introduce a lot of change for Karma and Warning. All my posts are in the Feature Tracker. It would be interesting to obtain a feedback about that ideas here.
