    and project.. phpBB. anyone know how to mod?

    hi guys,

    Im currently helping to rebuild a website for brightsparks, and we are going to be using phpBB as the chassis for our forum.

    What happens is that we assign points for each post, and then kids, like myself, then spend the points on electronic components, or can use them to redeem vouchers for their projects.

    I talked to Adrenalynn about this forum. She understands..... i hope....

    we need to add a points part in un-moderated posts so that we can then assign points. Then we need to add a column to the database to allow us to record points next to the username. atm the site is in flash.... and everything is manual. we want to automate some of the process to help the moderators.

    Because the site is for students, we have to moderate the posts before people can see them so that we can decide which are safe projects and which are. (tasers and the like(high voltage/amps)).

    The current test site is under my domain; . i am currently uploading and installing it now.

    any ideas?

    My first advide, is, don't use phpBB, use vBulletin.. Yes, you have to pay for it, but, it's 100x's the board that phpBB is.

    Thanks, Connor

    There are also boards out there dedicated towards this kind of stuff/support. Not trying to tell you to get lost or anything, just saying you might find people with more experience on the subject on a specifically related forum.
