Thumbs up Vbulletin Client Addon

Hi All,

I have an idea in my mind, i have spent my whole week thinking of how to implement it in my forums, but suddenly i thought, i should bring it to the developers attention as i don't want to infringe the VB copyrights
and at the same time i might get feed back if you like the idea

let me keep it short and get to the point.

Members of your forum, keep visiting your forum, the same main images
i.e (the images, misc, avatars, buttons, .....)

will be displayed to them if not cached in their systems. the server will spend time and bandwith in displaying the main images and .js files to the member/visitor

my idea is to develop an addon client (zipped file), where the forum's member can download to his machine,
in my example to the C: drive, and extract the file creating the VB client on the machine

and on the server side, we can develop a Style to read from the Client folder (on the members machine-pc)

i hoop my idea is clear and will get attention, as it can speed the forum visit very very quickly, as the member will be displaying the main images which are existing in his machine-folder


I have developed few API clients for ASP applications my self, and the idea will be great if it can be implemented for the VBulletin.

actually, this is completely against the license, but you could suggest it to the guys at jelsoft... lol

the only good thing would be to use the RSS feeds to the extend... RSS is stored in clients browser, cached 'til the next time they visit their RSS.

How is this any different from the default caching behavior of all modern browsers?

i use a system that work in that point of view, ... i started working on this software like 15 years ago, when it started in a university of Ontario... and they work that way for a time... the client cache the entire site as it is browsed, and you can continue navigate it offline, and when you come again on the site, the system posted the answers you may have written, etc...

but with the load of information transmitted and the now more important use of the net, it is completely obsolete to work that way because now, 90% of the population have internet...
