-Ability to make only specific groups have the ability to submit information to modules (news, cal events, classifieds, ect) as well as have the option to upload avatars. This way only certain groups of people will be able to submit an avatar, making you have the abilty to given them an incentive. Example: premium membership to your site would get them in a group that gets to do this stuff. Anyone not premium would have to use what ever avatars you have on the site and would not be able to submit info to the modules.
-A tool to allow you to add and delete specific profile questions. This would help sites who want people to be able to post more info in their profile (such as my site).
-Ability to make the news section appear not only all at once in a block but by category if you want. This way you could have a block that would ony display Site News, or Artist News like mine has.
-Some kind of compression thing to make the images change size afterwards. I don't know if this is possible or not with xoops. There is a board that I go to that allows you to upload avatar images and no matter how big they are, the site changes the size of the image and shrinks it down to the specs that Mike has it set at.
-The ability to re-order the forums and not just the categories. I use phpbb because it has so many more features than the XOOPS forum. Now, I know a lot of people don't need all these extra features but it would be nice to have them included as well.
-Jump buttons on the forums. Jump buttons, in case you don't know what I am talking about, are buttons that are set up by the user so they can go directly to their favorite forum. xMike uses this and it works great. The user selects in their profile which forum they want to have a jump link to and when they do, it appears at the top of the forums page as a number. Like, #1 on mine is the Movies, TV, and Music forum, #4 is the Chill Spot, and so on. It works great on sites with large forums.
I'll probably update this as I think of more stuff.
