      Hi,

      I think this is the wrong approach to the board
      Too much of something isn't always right.

      The best way is to browse some vBulletin powered boards and see if they have something you dont think vBulletin has, and that you think like 'geez, i wish my board had that'.. then search here to see if it already was done by someone and otherwise request it or try to make it yourself.. well, what I am trying to say is;

      Only hack what you think is needed. Overkill aint good.
      I have seen a few boards around with all the sounds and flashing images and everything.. and just doesn't do it for me.. 95% of the pageload are installed hacks that I dont think helps me when surfing their site, and only 5% of contect about the subject. Overkill.

      The hacks I have applied on my board are only template hacks, orhacks that dont involved altering actual php files, so upgrading is possible (like in a few days: 2.2.2 final-stable and in few months or so, v.3.0.0), they are:

      * OnMouseOver - highlight
      * Indexing - background images
      * Index header below every category
      * Splitting categories from eachother
      * Welcome panel- on top of index page
      * Priv msg system just below that
      * Guest avatar / New user- default avatar
      * vBstats site stats ..
      * referral system overview
      * updated icons and colouring (style/theme)
      * Find more posts by username
      * and a few that aren't public/visible

      And ones I have not (yet) installed:
      - collapse forums
      - collapse threads
      - collapse posts
      - vbPad
      - change avatar of banned users
      - mod control panel into admin control panel
      - pfff, and so much more...


      Template hacks can be done on this board
      Code hacks have to be done on vbulletin.org

      Anyway.. use the search luke, use the search
