In mid August I will be leaving on vacation. Before I go, these are the mafia projects I am attempting to complete.

Legend
  • GREEN means completed.
  • ORANGE means nearly completed.
  • PINK means started
  • WHITE means not started yet

New Features
  • Port over the cache busting system from newer phpbb versions.
    • This will allow us to make changes to the site's assets such as css and javascript without you guys having to manually refresh your cache to see the changes. Without a cache busting system the site can appear broken when changes are made and the browser is still using a cached version of the old files. The most recent example of this was the nav menu update a couple months back.
  • Complete the Post Thanks mod.
    • The post thanks mod is a new system that allows you guys to thank people for post they make. The number of thanks you've received given will be displayed on the profile page and there will be a page where you can browse all of your thanks (received and given) and see who has the most thanks. This will hopefully cut down on the thank you posts and help posters feel more appreciated.
  • Complete the Events Mod.
    • The events mod is a new system that will let you guys plan events for IMVU.
  • Build a system that allows VIP to post their advertisements on the market for longer than normal users.
    • VIP members will be able to set their number of days their advertisement will expire in to a maximum of 31 days. The max for normal users is 21 days
  • Complete the new medit logging system
    • The new medit logging system will let you guys better track how you're earning and spending your medits and let admins better track abuse. It will log way more than the current system does such as lottery ticket purchases, lottery wins, post creations and edits and more.

Improvements & Fixes

  • Friends & Foes Update
    • Split add friend, add foe, view friends, view foes and friend requests into their own pages instead of all being crammed onto 2 pages.
    • Completely rewrite and ajaxify the friend requests page so you can quickly and easy accept or ignore friend requests or cancel your requests and browse requests easier.
    • Pretty up the way friend requests are displayed.
    • Pretty up the way friends are displayed in the my friends page.
    • Add post count and join date info to friend requests so you can get a better idea of who wants to add you.
    • Add online/offline indicator next to each friend on the my friends page so you can see if they are online.
    • Separate your online friends from your offline friends on the UI.
    • Add extra information about your friends such as their last login date.
    • Clean up and create new messages around the friends system for describing data, notifying you of actions you have taken and alerting you to errors.
    • Add links to your Friends and Foes to the account drop down menu in the user bar so you can quickly and easy get to the friends&foes system to add new friends and browse existing ones.
    • Restore hiding posts by foes functionality (requires finishing the ViewTopic update)
  • ViewTopic Update
    • Make posts mobile friendly
    • Make quotes collapsible
    • Hide posts by foes
    • Make post time elapsed instead of a date/time string
    • Improve topic header by adding more information such as OP avatar and date/time posted
    • Add popover quick info box when hovering over user avatar (add/ignore user and message buttons)
    • Display medals/awards you've earned next to your posts
  • Medals Update
    • Remove outdated row/column logic from template
    • Remove outdated row/column logic from ACP
    • Remove outdated row/column logic from php
    • Remove outdated row/column logic from language
    • Remove outdated row/column logic from database
    • Rewrite the code that displays medals in posts
    • Update medal detail front-end
    • Update medal award front-end
    • Update medal index front-end
    • Update medal PM front-end
    • Fix award button on medals index and detail pages
    • Add number of medals to display in ViewTopic acp setting
  • Clean up the Moderator Control Panel to make it easier for our staff to digest the information displayed there and better handle reports.
  • Clean up the User Control Panel to make it easier for newer members to find the settings they are looking for and older members to discover settings they didn't know existed.
  • Clean up the PRB 2.0 main page to make it easier for Black Market customers to browse their uploaded products.
  • Clean up the Private Messages Menu to make it easier to browse your inbox and compose a new message.
  • Clean up the advertisements on the index page to make them easier to understand and improve sales for everyone.
  • Fix advertisement price not displaying on the index.
  • Re write the html & css code that powers displaying topic information so it can once again be used in places that need it such as the Moderator/User Control Panel. (Requires the cache busting port first)
  • Re write the Fake Message generator to make it easier to use with a better code layout and new features such as automatic screenshot generation.
  • Re write the Fake Room Card generator to make it easier to use with a better code layout and new features such as automatic screenshot generation.
  • Re write the Fake Avatar Card generator to make it easier to use with a better code layout and new features such as automatic screenshot generation.
  • Clean up the Private Message Compose page to make it easier to figure out how to send a message to other users.
  • Fix a small bug in the nav menu that causes it double in height on smaller laptop screens

Misc
  • Re design the way all of our web apps are built and stored on the server to make it easier to build and maintain new apps.

I think every mafia user should receive an automated message when somebody posts a new event. That way we can have more participants. This would also be good for newer users who are not very familiar with forum.

i already noticed 2 things that's great! the new thanks-mod (honestly love this feature, i have used it on other forums). also the new medit system coming.. to me it raise some concern's (from seeing some users win lottery 2 or more times in a row).

Thanks for keeping us updated

What's concerning about the medit logging system? All it does is record when you gain/lose medits and why.

Can't wait for the post love and medit logging system. I hadn't heard about the vip sales thing but i think it's a great idea. It would be great to have more vip features, including exclusive vip only badges and name colors in medit shop.

The winner is chosen from the group of people who've purchased tickets. If only a small group buy tickets then there's a good chance the same person will win.
