Full Version: Possible idea for a plugin/modification

I've posted a request on this over at the official Mybb forums which seems it wasn't noticed or no one took an interest in.

Actually a couple plugin suggestions along the same thing in terms of use.

1. An Ajax quick thread form, on the forum/subforum display page that will allows users to quickly create threads on the fly without a need to load the new thread page, similar to the Ajax Quick Reply.

A private message quick reply modification which would allow users to quickly reply to a PM on the fly without the need to load a new page.

There were a few members that would like to see such a modification made, and thought it would be useful to have. I am unsure if such a modification could be done with Ajax or if it is even necessary.

I would appreciate any feedback/insight on my plugin/modification suggestions.Smile

Adding an element of impulse to creating new threads seems like a poor idea, IMO. While replies often can be succint and quick, new threads should be a little more elaborate than that.

Not shooting down the idea, just my two cents as to why it doesn't exist yet.

I really dislike ajax for the most part. It means less ad displays and lower revenue. That's reality. It's "cool" but not profitable. I might add some Ajax features to MYPS but that's about it for my plans concerning that.

Not everyone wants to make money from their websites. Wink

Yes but I do and that's what I revolve my plugins around. I don't like "fluff".
