Took a look at OpenID and it seems like a good idea. The concern I have is what would happen if a username is already taken. I am not a tech guru so maybe there are rules for it. At this point anything that can help to make integration/plug in easier is a major step for UBB.

Rick please make the bold move and give the software the ability to integrate.

I have little to no interest in OpenID. I understand the concept, but at least for me, it's not something I care about - but that's just me, based on my community. If it is implemented, I hope it is a option for the admin.

Sorry to disturb again.
This attachment is a simple UBBThreads-OpenID integration diagram.
For you who are not familiar with openID.
Just to emphasize that , there will be no db schema changes. It's just a simple standard / de-facto service , but helps "expanding" our site very much.

Thanks for the diagram on how it would work. It looks like it would be a major step forward.

I understand how it works and I've had one for a while now but actually never really use it so far. Maybe someday I'll be with a site that uses it and I like the site and stay around.

I guess we could register as a new user 100 times and flood the poll

And how fair would that be?

If the UI was winning and someone suggested that you wouldn't be to happy right?

Agree!
Just having some fun with this.
I just want some existing features enhanced. I really don't care what the outcome of this poll is.

It was a joke, just having fun. It don't matter to me if blogs come as we wouldn't use it. I voted for UI as its only makes sense to do that first.

It's looking that way. It won't delay the UI update all that long. Like I said, our blog implementation will be fairly basic at first, so we're not talking about a 3 month development cycle for this one wink

Please don't avoid the Integration/Open ID discussion being that the blogs won. If you mention it in another post please point me there. If not can you give a statement on if this is in the future plans for the software. It would probably help many us with our planning in the future year.

Mmmm... I want to "revoke" my vote for blog.

I think a simple blog system doesn't appeal to users any more now , because users are "spoiled" by many OpenSource and fancy blog systems.

WordPress has a lot of plugins to 'play' with. The WordPress ecosystem is much larger than UBBThreads .
UBBThreads should think to leverage the ecosystem to expand site's functionality , not to re-invent the wheel.

I think UBBThreads have many other important features needed to be implemented (UI / WYSIWYG editor / ... ) , all focus on forum . As to features beyond forum ( Blog / Chatroom / Album / other plugins ...) , there are already myriads of mature solutions out there. Since OpenID is a promising technology about identity confirmation , data exchange , UBBThreads should seriously look into it , it will help you reduce a lot of "wheel"

There is a Chinese proverb "Person who complains a merchandise is the one that really buys it". I have many complains about UBBT (especially the slow develop process , advice acceptance) , but I also have supported UBBThreads since WWWThreads.perl ,in fact , I just renewed the license yesterday. I know "Open" is the only key to make a site strong and vital. I hope Rick can think and think again.

Sincerely

I personally do not care anymore if they do Blogs or the IU. If I like the product I will buy it and support it, if not I will just buy something else. There are many companies out there that make products that will fit my needs either being UBB or someone other company.

So, the next version should be version 7.5, and version 8.0 with the UI update should come shortly afterward.

I think it boils down to whether you want this to continue to be bulletin board software, or if you are trying to move into CMS space. I say continue to make it a better bulletin board software (one we've been paying for since 2000 and recently purchased Gold for), and leave the "other" stuff for the existing packages that folks can already get. Do one thing and do it best.
