SO I was wondering about replacing the Profile posts area with a personal forum.
Could work for me on my SMALL boards.
I'm looking for your good minds to check the idea - have I missed a bad disadvantage?
Working out the implications -
Keeps communication style consistent across the board.
Display most recently updated thread AND most recent post at top. Paginate encourages longer conversations.
Can include media. Pictures, videos.
Profile forums do not appear on the node tree .
User option - Profile threads can be private to follows, private to visitors, or publicly integrated to What's New?
Have their own settings per usergroup to replace profile posts settings.
Possible levels - newcomer has one welcome thread - midcomer can start their own threads - veterans have ability to allow visitors to start threads and even mod them.
Might draw too much action away from main forums? So perhaps a display of the top 10 most active profile forums - just linking usernames + small avatars. Top of whats new?
