Potential Features for Future Versions

These are features or functions that are being considered, or planned on, for a future version of Vesta, rather than on-release. I will be working to keep this up to date.

  1. The Battle Suite.
    1. This is the neat-o automated battler that allows an easy-to-maintain and use combat system.
  2. [@] Mention fancy search as you type.
  3. Award system.
  4. Easy-pants theme system with no commas or apostrophes.
  5. Drag and drop blocks where you want them on the front-end, move 'em around, junk like that.
    1. Maybe  drag and drop layout editing, with any luck the "easy" mode for Gaia's theme system will be pick up a fockin' thing and move it, there you go.
  6. PM auto-responders.
  7. Denote a board should only display topics that the viewing user has either:
    1. Created, or replied to;
    2. Been [@] mentioned in;
  8. Canon List - tickbox in character info for if a character is canon or not
  9. Ability to un-approve characters
  10. Character Retirement
    1. This would move characters into a separate tab and take them out of the posting list
  11. Sharable NPCs 
    1. so that there are options other than "everyone can play any NPC" or "no one can play an NPC other than the creator"
  12. Predefined Topic Fields
    1. This thread. This may already be partially done what with date and tagging. Popped it here anyway just in case.
  13. Next Topic or Next Unread thread button
    1. This thread.
  14. Theme system expansions so you can edit variants and also wanna try and get the easy mode vs advanced mode theme editing to work.
  15. Delete from the file manager:this thread
    1. Also All the delete functions need to ask if a user is sure before deleting anything.
  16. set HttpOnly cookies to prevent iframes being able to read them via document.cookie

  25. Alter how sessions are stored, so that remembered users don't have session time-outs all the time. 
  26. Mature threads need to be filtered from the timeline.
  27. Disable the show mature content switch from even displaying at all if the birthdate isn't filled in correctly and the user isn't above 18 anyway.
