Larger private message storage (2000 messages vs 1000)


Has anyone besides maybe mods, every resieved more than 1000 PM's? :lol:

I like the idea, I would defently be interested in the Premium Membership. Mainly for the article/tutorial section.

I've always thought Ozzu should have something like that. Every once in a while someone will post an article in the programming section.

Pfft, if it's money you want all you need to do is ask! :wink:

Joking aside, i think this is a great idea. Surely though the annual fee is waivered for moderators though? :)

Of the listed proposed ideas, i'll only put my thumbs down to the "instant messenger" option. Obviously the idea is in it's early stages, but should this go ahead i'd like to have the option on whether it is enabled or not. Other than that, i'd say go for it!

It would definately be nice to have text file attachments.
There's nothing like being able to check out someones' code in the editor of your choice.

I was going to say full RSS feeds thinking the RSS feeds are truncated at X characters, but it appears the RSS feeds are already being distributed in full form. Did I miss simthing ? :scratchhead:

I imagine there's some people who would like more than two signature links.
Maybe increased filesize for banners in signatures. Somthing like the 15K proposed for avatars.

Yes, many of the options that would be something that I could see some members wanting or not wanting would be optional.

Yes that would be included with the image attachments. Many types of different attachments will be accepted.

I believe the RSS feeds show the entire first post of the thread, I don't remember truncating anything.

That is a good idea, raising that limit to 3 might be good.

Another good idea, added both of these to the list.

Personally I'm not a fan of chat within a forum. This could be an easy way out of posting to the forum, therefore reducing the possibility that the problem could be shared with other members.

It's also something that the moderators would have to moderate, which isn't possible all the time. More of a headache and would as you say UNFLUX might encourage more people to use that than the forums.

Ok well I think its a fabulous idea.

I'll ONLY sign up with full payment IF the following requests are met..

1. I get the signed Bigweb autograph mentioned above (personalised of course!)
2. You bring back the games for premium members only :D

:thumbsup:

When Ozzu used to have games it did have highscores. That would be a possibility to bring that back to premium members, I will add that to the list as well.

So does it look like this is going to go ahead Brian? Or is it still an idea at this stage?

Seems like there is a pretty good response from the regulars. If they are willing to pay for something they are already getting for free (donations not counted), go for it..

One other idea...

Maybe for the "who's online" area, maybe a different color for the premium members or somewhere within the following:

I had something similiar:

  • Username title on threads will be a special color (like gold) to indicate you are a supporting premium ozzu member (optional)


I like the look of what you just did there too, that might be sufficient.

Users have the option to include their birthdate and birthdays for any given day are displayed on the home page. It used to be a separate MOD but is now included in phpBB3.

Access to things like browser/OS/resolution usage would be a nice thing to have comming from a site the size of Ozzu.

Ya, that would be a cool feature, general stats of ozzu that might be useful to webmasters. What else could go on that list besides general user agent info?
