So I love XenForo, but because of a crash on our old server (long story) I made the jump to XF a little bit sooner than I had planned. While the overall posting is great, the security measures for a rowdy board are not quite there yet. We are going to hit a bit of a rough patch in the next few months and I will gladly pay to have these mods (Message me for prices because I dont know fi we are allowed to post them here):
Is any other user posting from this IP Address (a small button listed below the post. I know a similar function is built into the core of XF, but it is not very user friendly, quick, robust, or reliable). Finished! check in the add-ons area.
Take the IP address of the current post and take to a site that presents the location of the IP (this one should be fairly easy) I did this one myself and posted in the Template Modifications
Promotion system. I know one is in the works, but if I can get a stop gap solution for the moment until the full promotion system is released.
Anyone with some time and coding skills will be rewarded!
What I want for promotions is when a user firsts signs up they are in the default registered users group. That group is limited to ONLY posting in one place, Newbies. If they make 3 posts and they have been registered for at least 3 days they get promoted (or an additional group is added onto their username) that has the ability to post everywhere.
This has stopped a lot of the creating of usernames to start flame wars.
