    I was looking at the map reserve list and thought it'd be cool to have it sortable by user and map name. :thumbup1:

    Also, when registering a map name it could be like a wizard... have it fetch your user_id from the vBulletin variable, have a box to enter map name. Then check if it's available... if available it goes to a comfirmation page, if not, it highlights the box and you try again. :huh:

    Then maybe a way to link a "Map detail page" from the list, with screenshots, ratings, comments, downloads... links to discussion topics! :drool1:

    Maybe gone a bit over the top there, just a suggestion! :blush:

    lol

    granted they are all great suggestions. but the reserve map listing was made by me over a few hours looking through mysql and php tutorials. ill need a few weeks to read up even deeper in the programming for me to be able to pull something like that. :/

    I might install a vBulletin forum on my server and have a read up on integrating the variables into custom scripts. See if I can't knock up a prototype. As I never have anything interesting to play with PHP & MySQL.

    EDIT: Maybe not, didn't realise it wasn't on a free license!

    I'd be willing to help out with that, if you'd like.

    Actually pulling up tables with php using sql statements is pretty easy, should take you a day max to figure out. Integration maybe another day.

    Yeah, it would be no problem to make. It's just getting it to work nicely with VBulletin, and having no access to an installation doesn't help.

    Then there's styling it to look nice. Would take another day or so.
