Need your ideas -Forummods.net

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
ok i have been holding this domain forummods.net for a while now and i need some ideas of what to turn it into. I thought about just having it as a site where there would be articles to do with forums but as you guessed that is pretty bland. My next thought was about creating a system where forummods could report members such as spammers into a long list. Other forum members could use this list to prevent it happening to them. Then i thought about this a second longer and realised it would get abused. So now im stuck. Can you help me with some ideas and possibly some help making it happen if you want :P Thanks!

    You could simply make a blog about Forum Modifications for Vanilla/phpBB/phorum/etc, including detailed screenshots covering all the features of the mod/addon/extension. If any of the larger pay-for forums have affiliate/referal schemes, you might get some cash from that too. Alex

    yeah i was hoping for something more innovative :P but yeah, would workk, i made a wordpress theme (check the url) http://www.forummods.net . Or a forum for forum moderators and such to talk but i can never get any active members to forums or members full stop. Or user submit list of the worst forum modifications they have found or used. Then at the end of the month we can see which one got the worst rating or something and send it some graphical award :P (well just a thought) i guess the opposite may work aswell :P oo or even have both!I could have a link to worst mods section and a good one using inverted color schemes or something!

    What I meant is ... web projects will work quite well if the web is connected with real life. is there any clubs, schools in your town? would they be interested in some forum that they could moderate. you could create forum and they could share their moderation and startup problems (with each other)

    what about starting off with Vanilla; and the key extensions as used in this site. also: livesearch, vanillaicons, etc
  • Options
    vanilla for a blog?..nah id rather use the blog software however i will setup a vanilla forum to match my site
  • Options
    sorry, maybe i have got the wrong end of the stick, immersion. But your site was gonna cover new mods for forums? ie vanilla/phpBB/yabb, etc extensions/plugins, yes? That is the way I woudl go......along with screenshots, as iambigred suggests. Unsure where blogging comes into this.

    "You could simply make a blog about Forum Modifications " said the man himself. The blog part was really just a site where screenshots would be sent and a reveiw written about the mod
