Agreed, I live by that rule

I don't see a problem with starting a thread just as long as you have the right intentions & don't give out false information. It's cool to keep people like myself updated so that we're not sitting there like "WTF is going on?"

All I have to say is this is a very dumb idea when compared to Zoints.

So basically you want ever forum to have social networking capabilities which will spread the entire internet community thin. Each site will have it's own network, people will have to create multiple profiles and set one up on each site they visit? Retarded. Zoints networks everything into one profile for all the participating forums that has it. Why don't you use that solution rather than driving the social networking fad through the ground?

What's the difference between "social networking spread thin" and the thousands upon thousands of currently existing forums? MANY forums cater to very specific userbase and are not trying to compete with myspace. We want some of the features for our current members. You sound like a zoints salesman.

If this thread turns into a Zoints debate, I will close it. The purpose of this thread is to discuss development of a profile page modification not to discuss a commercial mod.

I really like how these sites link to a user's favorite events,venues or scenes and then show which users are interested in similar things.

http://www.dodgeball.com/user?uid=38796

http://www.yelp.com/

It would also be helpful for admin to have the ability to disable custom profile designs and stick with a default template. It just keeps things cleaner and less cluttered.

Compare the Dodgeball user page to the same user's MySpace page -- ugghhh!
Don't get me wrong -- It's great to have a choice and there's something to be said for individuality and uniqueness, but those who can't live without the flashy, blinged out look are always welcome to link to their MySpace pages.

I thought so too. Some sites lend themselves to bling and others by nature of their content need to be more... shall we say... minimal and clean in appearance.

Minimal and clean is my favourite and overall they are likely to be more sucessful for a number of reasons... easy on the eyes so people who are visually impaired can still use the site with easy... easy to use so people who aren't technically clued up and new to the 'net can use the site with ease. At the end of the day 'less is more'.

If i put the Myspace Profile rewrite & Myspace UserCP rewrite that currently exist on to my forums, is it going to be a pain to revert back and use vbpsace?

Not at all, a simple revert of templates woulds all be needed, under 10 seconds.

No I'm not a salesmen for them.

I'm just saying, a modification like this basically is going to break the social networking phenomenon. The clones such as phpfox and others that try to mimic myspace are all but imitations with no innovation.

After something has been imitated and duplicated enough it loses it's value.
