You know what would be neat?

To have the CG photo album as a mod to the forum software. Like, everybody would have a "Photo" link above their posts, with the "Profile" and "www" links. There could also be a central display, like the old ACOL photo album. Everybody would upload their own photo, so there wouldn't have to be anybody to compile it all and maintain a seperate site.

I could do it, but I'd need admin access... (shut up, Qaj)

Why would we need a photoalbum?

SP, that's a good idea, however this kind of change would require a lot of work, and I don't think it will work as you intend, as posters would be unlikely to add their own photo, or more likely add a jokey image, which is what avatars are already about.

If you would like to do a central CG photo album anyway (just html and images) CG would be more than happy to host it.

Yeah, you're right.

If I ever manage to do something about it, I'll PM you. I'm mostly interested because I want to work with PHP.

I don’t know if you’ve heard of PyMeld. Python has so many cool tools for this sort of thing.

If you want to work with PHP don't start with modding the vbulletin software and templates!

Why? It can't be that hard, surely? I'm writing forum software in ASP, and it's been fairly straightforward thus far.

Are you sure you know how to design web pages, Nav?

not necessarily hard per se, but with the amount of code, the fact that templates are stored in the database. it can get a *bit* complex, time-consuming...

In the database? That'd be a pain in the ass.

Yeah.It’s because everyone loves editing in the browser and not these nast text editor things. vBulletin would be plenty easy to use with a simple templates directory and more sensible template structure (there was a really good one for one of the Nuke-a-likes, but I forget which one).

Aren't you the one who used admin access to ban yourself and all the other admins from a UBB BB?

And it was EZBoard, which is a lot harder to administrate than it sounds.
