What features should any forum not be without?
What features are more trouble than they are worth?
- Mass delete by user (for fast spam cleanups)
- Flood control (to slow down spammers with a minimum time between posts)
- Display users from same IP address, and all IPs for a user
- Adjustable membership levels so that new users may have more restrictions than older users or approved users
(I'm a little spam conscious these days - can you tell? ;))
It sure does. Even in cases with chat rooms where it's loudly proclaimed that private messages cannot be read by anyone (which is not true, though access is limited) there are some heavy duty liability issues.
I've had members sign up for all kinds of notifications, get tired of their inbox loading up, and then mark them as spam.
Something that I haven't seen except in hack form is bounce processing - i.e., if a notification bounces, it disables further notification unless manually reset.
