    In relation to suggestions, there are two type of suggestions:

    Pragmatic/Practical Suggestions:
    Here are some examples:

    * Capitalisation of usernames for VIP's
    * Special username colours for trusted members
    * etc.

    These suggestions are pragmatic because we can all see that such a thing could be implemented easily. Irrespective of whether we'd want to go ahead and put these suggestions into action, we can all see that we could.

    Contrastingly, there are...

    Idealistic Suggestions:
    Here are some examples:

    * A Atlava built in IM system
    * Atlava iPod/iPhone App
    * Something which goes through posts deleting spam

    The suggestions are idealistic because, as nice as they may well sound, they are impractical; they cannot be implemented easily. They would require an external modification to VBulletin or they would require an investment of time from Muazam. Moreover, some suggestions are so idealistic that they couldn't even be implemented even if we did have the time!

    In short, please respect Atlava's limits: time, finances and ability to implement. If you still decide to make a suggestion which would involve modification or coding, please try to include a link to a VBulletin mod which does what you're suggesting.

    I just noticed this sticky. This is some great info for users who suggest things that are just out of reach.

    Very well done =] Atlava IM and the App would take so much work money and time and is obviously not practical I agree with what your saying and people should stop putting stuff like this in the suggestions. Those times could be nice to hear and talk about but IN the RANDOM SPAM section.
