poked around on the YABB (this BBS) site this morning looking for a Mod that would do what you suggest. I couldn't find anything, unfortunately. I'll put in a feature-request for the next rev, but who knows. it's a good idea tho. I'm pretty much into programming stuff in Perl, but I'm not too interested in trying to hack this board. way to many places I could screw something up.
I have considered changing BBS's but that's a pretty big deal as it most likely means dumping the entire membership and starting over. not exactly a community builder, aye? <wry grin> if I were to ever have a server crash that I couldn't recover from I would likely make a change tho. these days I'm much more into PHP than Perl.
anyway, thanks for the suggestion,
