Request: Community Update (bulletin like combull)

Is anyone working on something like this for 3.5? Would this be one of those hacks that doesn't require any file edits? I consider this to be the single most important feature of my site. The ability to send out a weekly bulletin with all the latest posts, polls, calendar events, etc is just GREAT. Every friday becomes the most active day of the week on my forums when I send out the bulletin. I usually get at least 50% of my 2000 members to check in.

PLEASE - PLEASE TELL ME SOMEONE IS WORKING ON SOMETHING! Please? :surprised:

I am going to keep this alive until someone sees it. I am surprised that more people don't send out a bulletin like this.

Anyone? Could this be done without hacking VB code???

Right now it cannot be done via plugins since there are no plugins in the acp.

TTT again

What would be a fair price to pay to have a custom system built? I want to put in a request because this is the single most important feature on my site. My advertisers like to sponsor the mailing, my users like to receive it, and I love the traffic that comes when it goes out. It's the best thing ever to happen to vbulletin.

I really want to put in a request but dont want to offend anyone with too low of a price. What is the best way to do a paid request? Tell them what I am willing to pay, or let them tell me what they need?

heh, i almost forgot i got something like this planned though ETA atm isn't gonna be anytime soon as i got a couple other projects ahead of it in my queue, and with me no where near upgrading my life site to 3.5 :ermm: the hardest part is actually the userside but i guess that's not even hard with custom menu's, so scrap that. ok the hardest part is the flexibility side, IMO if someone does get one out anytime soon, it should be template based and the coding construct should be kept tidy

traderx, what extra features are you looking for?

CommBull is the most important hack on my board. I've used it for years now and we won't switch to 3.5 unless something similar is available. We're not going to give up guaranteed traffic for superficial features.
