phpBB2/3 plugin Posted: Post 11:39 Sat - Jul 04, 2009

i had an idea of creating a plugin that enables you to read your forumnews ingame.
as i can imagine that not everybody is running the bot on the same webserver as the bot and not everybody is able to directly access the mysql-db of its board, it would be a plugin for the bot as well as a ragebot.php that you'd have to upload to your phpbb-folder.

i think of creating a forumuser "ragebot" and his forumpermissions limit the forums that are streamed to your ragebot.
later, there could be an option to enable the bot to send a "newsletter" tell to any guildmate that is logging in.

if there's any use of it, i'd start the work. please tell me which forumtypes you're using if you want to make use of it.
i'm not able to try out other forums than phpbb2 yet, but i'm quite sure to get this running for phpbb3 as well.

if you want to get this running for other boards, you should know how to modify the board-plugin to extract the forumdata based on the permissions of a special user.
