So for instance, a person signs up on the boards and has an account but does not get assigned anything but the default usergroup we have set which has no view rights. When they create that account, it makes a post in a specified section of the forums.
An officer of my boards could then read their post and would have three buttons under their avatar. Accepted, Denied, and Recruit.
-Accepted would set their primary/secondary usergroup to a specific set, send the poster a pm/email, post in the applicant's thread saying that they have been approved, and move their post to the accepted section of our forums.
-Declined would leave their usergroup set to default, send them a pm/email saying that they've been declined, post in the applicant's thread saying that they have been declined, and move their post to the declined applications section of my board.
-Recruit would leave their usergroup set to default, send them a pm/email saying that they need to get on our teamspeak for an interview, and move their post to the recruit section of our board. This option would also have to all someone to use the Accepted/Declined option after the recruit has done their interview based on whether we accepted or declined them.
Preferably, I would like the registration form to to allow customizable options that I could tie to usergroups based on what options they pick. In my group, we have several different game communities that we keep separated by usergroups. Want the applicant to apply for specific game groups, but still have all their posts go to the same forum section.
Examples of this in action on our old vbulletin board:
-Initial post showing placement of three options
-A sample of the post that the application approval button sent to members through a reply post, pm, and email when an officer hit approve
-Example of the the interface looked like after an officer of our boards hits recruit
-Example message posted as a reply, pm, and email when an officer set someone as a recruit
I am willing to pay a reasonable price for this development work.
