Feature Requests/Website Wishes

Hello members and visitors! The forum has been upgraded to a new server and new forum software versions. We are in the process of tidying up and making it look nicer, but for now, please check out our two newest themes: Steel Nexus and Steel Nexus Worksafe!
  • We're off to a smashing start here, but there is always an opportunity to improve and the potential to make things even better. The website is built on a backbone called the WoltLab Community Framework (WCF) and Woltlab Burning Board Forum (WBB) and it is an extremely versatile framework - highly customizable, highly extensible. There are plenty of plugins, apps, and extensions to be found in the English community, but the forum is made by a German developer, so if you can navigate any German, you can find even more (WCF/WBB is a very popular solution in Central and Northern Europe, but doesn't have as much exposure in the UK or the US as things like vBulletin or Xenforo... which in my opinion is a shame... but I digress).

    So without further ado we'd like to kick off the forum's feature requests discussion. We already had a smaller one in the moderator area but now that everything is rolling, it's time to open it up to the public.

    If you want to trawl for ideas, the official support and plugin community for WBB/WCF can be found here: https://pluginstore.woltlab.com/

    Some of the wacky things we can do include integrating teamspeak or minecraft servers, adding a pillory to put naughty members on public display, adding the ability to log in via steam, adding a bot to automatically wish members a happy birthday, handing out user-of-the-month trophies, and the list goes on. Of course, we would like to keep it mostly football relevant but anything that will add enjoyment to our visitors and keep them around for football talk will be considered.
