I'm the author of the 8WR mods on VB.org. VB4 is bad, and I've been wanting to dump it as soon as reasonably possible. They are called 8WR mods because every mod I write, I use myself on my own website at http://www.8wayrun.com/. I will be getting the beta on October 5, and I plan on immediately starting work on not only new mods, but converting my existing mods to the XenFramework. The mods I plan on working on so far are listed on my sig; but I am creating this thread as a central place for ideas and requests in my various mods.
I'm getting really antsy in anticipation for October 5. I really wanna get me hands on XenForo as soon as possible so I can get right to work. I love programming and I'm getting so impatient. I hate bug fixing though... haha.
XenGrado is going to be a fork of my old TIO/FTL Compatible Ranking Ladder for VB3. What the original mod did, was calculate rankings based on tournament attendance and results. I have decided to move this into XenTorneo; XenGrado won't be tournament based at all. Instead, XenGrado will be a Microsoft TrueSkill based challenge system where people can challenge other users and they are awarded or detracted points based on the levels of their opponents.
I decided to change the way my Media Library works a little bit. I need to be able to make some money, and the media library has always been free. It will continue to be free... however the free (re: lite) version will only support YOUTUBE. This of course will be fine for the majority of users. I will then sell XML packages for other hosters at $5 a piece... so people can selectively choose which hosters they want to support on their forums.
If you have anything against this change in practice... please respond as I am open to ideas, criticism and complaints.
