How about putting how many the hacks a user has done in the postbit underneath their name etc.

Wot u think ?

It would be cool, in thought...but then think about this:

FireFly has released 27 hacks. That's a lot of room to take up on the left side of the page...in every post....and considering most hacks names are too long to fit in the small width of the postbit area.....

Yea, not so good idea afterall ;)

If it's for how many hacks, then it would be a nice feature to see :)

Sinecure, does that mean you scribbled it at the bottom of FireFly's 'To Do' list? ;)

sounds cool, maybe put a link on it and a popup will open with all the hacks that someone have done.

So, we expect a hack turned out of this idea? nice :)

Time to reply, eh? :)

To be honest I would love to do this, the only problem is I don't know how.
Sure it's easy, I can just add a query to the getpostbit() function, but that would really slow down display of showthread, and I'm not willing to make that sacrifice.
Or I can just store that number in a user field, but that would require updating it on so many places or it won't be accurate.

I'll probably use the second method, beta test is until I can make sure it's working fine, then make it publicly available.
But it will take a while, I still have a lot of stuff to do on this board.

I suggest that you take your time. We all certainly understand how busy you are with this board :)

Let us know when you have installed more hacks on the forums :)

Ok, I finally figured out a way to accomplish this with only one query, so I'll probably add it this afternoon or something. :)

Cool :cool:

Ok so it's almost done, I'm just having troubles with users with no hacks.

Lesane

I c it, loox good.

and why not setting the default value as zero, if you made a new field, by the ppl that has no hacks?

Chen

That's the beauty of it, it's not in a new field. :)

Chen

Ok, finally it's done. :)
Also made it so the link will only show up for users that have any hacks.
