Thanks for all your suggestions and your time
, and this topic is now closed.
I have chosen quite a few suggestions in this thread and will implement them in our version 1.9. I will have a detailed feature list available here by Friday.
Please understand that I will not add features that are either too resource intensive, require too much database space, or are too overly complicated to implement with pure ASP. Like I said in the new web site, I do not pretend to be everything for everyone. This application has to stay clean and useful to the public in general in order to scale well for busy forums. The balance among usability, feature, and performance is the key that makes ASPPlayground.NET stand out from the crowd.
Thanks again and I am sure that you will be happy with the final feature list
1.82.20 will be the last build for our 1.8x release. So, what would you like to see in our version 1.9 (will be out late September)?
Please push me as hard
. I want to make the 1.9 release as complete as possible for all of you. I' d also like to thank many of you who provide valueable suggestions to make this forum application the BEST
Please note that we will not be supporting Mail List, Calendar, and Chat room in our ASP version. Those features will appear in our upcoming .NET software which will take advantage of several .NET specific features. Group based permission is also not suitable in ASP either (performance reasons).
I know many of you have suggested some features, but if you can, please post them here as well. I will have a detailed feature set out in mid-September.
Thank you all! update -
Just want to let you know that our version 1.9 will be using pseudo RC4 encryption for password stored in cookies. Admin will be able to specify a key for this encryption (in masterinclude.asp). This will provide a good balance between security and performance. The level of security will be based on the length and the character combination of your key. I really don' t see any more benefits to provide a higher level of security model in a forum application.
