It would be awesome with a Slackbot for Xenforo. (Slack is a powerful messaging app for teams/grous which allows you to add bots/apps).

Slack bot users: https://api.slack.com/bot-users

Slack incoming webhooks: https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks

A list of slack apps/bots: https://slack.com/apps

A few examples of what a slackbot for Xenforo could do:
  • Notify when a new user registers
  • Notify user moderation
  • Notify when @X gets tagged
  • Notify about new entries to the error log
  • Setup milestones - "yay, you just reached X registered members"
  • Report statistics "800 users currently online"
  • Ban/report a user by typing /ban or /report username
Etc. etc.

Not sure what's possible, but any support would be super cool to have.

We actually have something that functions relatively similar to this for our own internal use, it's probably something we could get to a point that we could release. Just shoot me a PM if you'd like :)

I use Slack to pull registrations, etc in Xenforo. It would be nice to have slackbot post when you have a user register, etc..

PM me if you're willing to chip in for an add-on.

I'm thinking of starting with :

  • Ping when there's a new report. Display comment + URL.
  • Ping when X user/group is tagged. Display thread title+URL to the post.
  • Ping when there's a new post in X forum. Display thread title and URL.
Keeping it pretty basic.

I would love to see a way to / command a response to a thread right from in slack. New Thread pops up as a bot, and you can / respond. A method of tying the slack user to their xenforo username would be needed though.
