Paid for projects: Site Currency

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi there, now Vanilla 1 is out i'm begining to work on a ground up rebuild of planet-tolkien, the old framework is too poorly built to carry on with and frankly the site is a mess! WE NEED VANILLA!!! But there are some features we really need to add to vanilla for the re-launch: Site currency: Presently, site members get 20 mithril points for their first login of the day, this can then be spent on creating a character for themselves by choosing from a list of character types and places to live. I need a extention for this which will allow the users number of posts, character type and area of residence to display in their post headers and other paid for items to display on their user profile page. Additionally the moderators need to be able to gift memebers mithril as prizes for competitions the admins run.


  • The second one doesn't even need an extension; Vanilla roles can already do all that, though you may need to restyle it before it looks like what you want.
  • I must admit I wondered if i'd missed somthing there, it's been a few months since I did anything on this project. Does the site currency look possible though?
  • Is no one interested? I realise there are technical difficuties but surely there's someone out there prepared to take on the job?

    With all of the talent on this board, I find it surprising that no-one has bitten.

    I might have to start a job board, after all.

    can you send me a complete project description , and at least your budget for this project ? , we could do that if we came across . at least these are all kinda gaiaonline-features. ... i hope you know this is a brutal amount of work dude :D edit:
  • i like your idea. sounds cool. i couldnt code it, but id be interested in using it.
  • hey fery, could you drop me an e-mail?

    chedabob, yeah I think it could really add somthing to the vanilla community, particularly for the more fan-centric forums. I'd talked with the PT mod's about going ahead into vanilla without the features and while we all agree vanilla would improve the site these features are pretty essential to the character of the site and it would be nice if we had somthing to spend mithril on at last!
