I was on the gmodz server and was looking at some possible updates, then I came across a "forum sync" Addon. This addon would sync every user in-game to the forums, thus having them automatically added to the created user group. Example: Vip in game ---> vip rank on the forums (gmodz side) admin in game ---->gmodz admin on the forums. Gives people some sort of incentive to join the forums and become more active.



I've also noticed with a lot of people, most don't receive an email to verify their forum registration, maybe have some sort of Steam Authentication & Integration, Allowing users to sign in via steam. I feel the forums could use an update. These are just some ideas, anymore ideas? feel free to share in the comments on what you'd like to see. Strictly forum ideas Smile

I like the sync idea a lot. That would make a lot of things easier.

Another idea I was thinking of was adding on a forum reputation system. On any post that a user puts on the forums it would be cool to have a "Thumbs up" or Thumbs down" rep system. Based on the amount of up votes or down votes the user has will determine there forum rep rank/how trusted they are within the community.

Fascinating idea. I think a sync would be great. Most people rarely come on the forums, and the forums could be so much more active.
