Start on SMF, then port to Wedge later.

There will be a lot of differences.. But it's probably wiser to take your time to learn about Wedge's structure first.

Thanks! :)

Another question: do you know the "good post bad post mod"? Is maybe the author part of the wedge community too?

Ok, thanks. :)

I can't see any particular license in the files of this mod. Should I contact outoforder in order to ask him if I can port it to wedge (when ready), or better not?

(yes, I want to be ready to start asap moving my forum, when wedge is public :yahoo: ... And this is the only mod I miss, at the moment).

Looks like our future like/dislike feature?

Where can I read about this future feature? :)

The concept is not only to like / dislike, but there's a user total count (reputation) and the possibility to automatic hide posts that totalize a certain negative amount of votes.

Well, it's one of the rare features that we definitely want in the first alpha but still haven't started to work on... Personally, it's because I'd like for the feature to be compatible with Facebook Like from day one, but OTOH I can't bother to dive into the Facebook API for now -- and I don't want the feature to ONLY be about Facebook, i.e. if you don't have (or want to have/use) a Facebook account linked to your forum account, you can still use the feature. I have a Facebook account but I certainly don't want my friends to be flooded with fascinating wall posts like 'René-Gilles Deberdt likes garlic sausage' whenever I click Like in a garlic sausage topic.
You know... Things like that.

Also, the idea for the like feature is to have a common internal structure (i.e. same table for everything) that allows to show your appreciation for a topic, a post, a blog post, a media item, and so on, just the same.

Ok! That's good. We can then add the "respect" calculation feature later with a simple mod. And the "auto-ignore" feature isn't really a must-have. :)

I'm personally not sure about FB compatibility there, but I can see why people would want it to be so.

I think that is better to implement FB compatibility later, as option.

You know... FB also had modified their api in the past. :hmm:

If Pete won't bother either, then I doubt FB compatibility will be in our feature, at least in its first implementation ;)

dorje, "respect" is basically karma... Right? Then why not use karma at all? I think that 'like' is better off used as a positive feature like (as I recently said) offering access to popular posts (either from someone or everyone), seeing a list of all posts someone liked or disliked, etc. Rather than a feature where people leave a forum because they're upset with having negative karma...

As for the API, I doubt they'll change it much for now. But never say never...

I used karma before, but basically is not very useful. A lot of people uses karma against other people like a joke. I experienced people creating "punishment groups", beating other people only because "once, in a post, he wrotes that...".

The like/dislike feature, combined with the simple total for each user, works better (that's because you can view who voted for a post).
