I thought this is a good idae to post it here:
from David Anderson

I just checked in the following.
See instructions at the bottom for deploying it in your project.
-- David

- New features for message boards (from Janus Kristensen):
Added:
- External avatars (but commented it out -
it's better to use hosted avatars)
(Tiny images under people's name)
- Hosted avatars
(Uploads and scales to 100x100 in the IMGAGE_PATH dir)
- Special users
(Project admins, devs, newcomers etc. will get a line
telling what they are under their name)
- Option to display images as links
- Option to open links in a new window
- Option to hide avatars
- Option to enable/disable attach of signature by default
- Settings for sorting is now handled using the database
instead of cookies (ie. you can change host without
having to set your preferences up again,
some users also have cookies disabled)
- Preview of signature
- Unread posts are marked as "Unread"
(if they are newer than 2 days (configurable in forum.inc)
and user hasn't visited the post)
- Interface to forum preferences and sorting methods
- Link to interface from user preferences
- Reset forum preferences button
(Some users have reported that an unusually long
signature with html could make the page unviewable. This fixes it)
- Option to sort with "Oldest first" in answers in the FAQ area

Moved:
- Signature input in user prefs to forum prefs

Fixed:
- Sorting in answers in the FAQ area didn't work
- minor speedups and html stuff

DB-stuff:
- create forum_preferences & forum_logging
- transfer old settings

NOTE: If you want to use these features, you will need to
create two new DB tables (forum_preferences and forum_logging;
just execute the commands from schema.sql)
and you'll probably want to copy existing signatures and nposts
from the user table (see html/ops/db_update.php)

The whole is more then the sum of its particles.

My comment:

I like the idea of avatars and seperate forum stats. Also showing the not readed posts is an interessting feature.

What do you think?
