Automatically Add Friend

vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (13 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 200
Released: 27 Apr 2008 Last Update: 28 Apr 2008 Downloads: 923
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Introduction
This modification acts somewhat like Myspace. When you register on Myspace, the creator of Myspace (Tom) is automatically added as a friend (mutually). This acts the same way on your forum by adding any number of users (user IDs required) to the new users friend list. This is completely mutual, but now has the option to be a non-mutual friendship.

This was coded by request in this thread.

Requirements
  • vBulletin 3.7.x (This should work on ALL betas & RCs!)
Installation
  1. Upload the attached product file by following this path:
    ACP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product]
  2. Head over to the vBulletin options, open up the "User Registration Options", and set a list of users under the "Automatically Add Friends" option.
  3. Enjoy!

Maybe as an option as I think that would not be useful, especially on larger boards.

I wouldn't make it automatic. I would always make it an option.

The person goes on your buddy list (as the one defined that is), as well as you on theirs.

Nope. I based it off of MySpace, but I guess that is an easy addition to code. I will add this sometime next week. I will give you an option for this:
  1. User Only (Default)
  2. Admin & User
  3. No Notification

Sounds good. I was just thinking that a new member that doesn't know vb that well might not understand what the automation part is all about so they might not even know that a friend has been added.

The only problem with it would be is that I have the ability of multiple additions, so I would have to add them all to one PM. (And send separate PMs to those who were added).

I guess I don't follow you. You could do it after a user verifies through email verification.

What do you mean? The modification runs with do=addmember (when it is actually "registered"). I do not limit on how many users you have automatically added to a members profile, and allow you to separate names using a comma. These are created into an array and they are systematically added to each other's friends list. My problem is that if I have 10 users in the array, I don't want to send the new member 10 different Private Messages saying "you are now friends with x". I would rather have it go something like this.

Dear New User,

The administrator has chosen to have the following members automatically added to a new member's friend list. So, the following users have been added to your friend list:
  • Username 1
  • Username 2
If you have any questions regarding this friendship, please contact a member of the administration.

Regards,
{Board Name} Staff
Obviously will be completely customizable.

OK, but what happens if they do not validate with the email validation? I think it would be better to only add registered users as users who don't validate never make it back, or is that how it works already? I haven't looked at the code so sorry if I am missing something or not understanding.
