I just wanted to mention you ROCK! A well thought out and well designed extensible forum is a welcome breath of fresh air. Most of the other forum software I've looked at was clearly hacked together willy nilly. I was reading through the docs because I'd like to add some extensions (email notification, private messages, auto registration with catchapa, etc.) but from the looks of it there's going to have to be some kind of solution for the Object Factory issue you mentioned in the Wiki. I'm not sure how slow this would be in PHP but maybe some kind of delegate (callback) system where you could register functions to be called per major operation and vanilla would call them all. Of course that would still have a order issue but if each major process in Vanilla had a list of delegates then it would be possible to add extensions that did e-mail notification and e-mail registration etc. I'm not saying it would be easy, just dreaming of a system where the main code doesn't have to be edited to add stuff like that.
