MyBB (the forum software that powers this board) is being rewritten from scratch. Does anybody have any suggestions for things they would like to see added?

Here's what been publicly released thus far:
https://blog.mybb.com/2015/03/09/2-0-dev-post-1/
https://blog.mybb.com/2015/04/13/2-0-dev-post-2/

No public test board yet. The GitHub repository has however been open to the public.

UPDATE: A 1.10 version will come first. Feature suggestions are still welcome.
Sweet, we're getting post liking. Thumbsup

The only thing I can think of adding is the ability to have multiple polls per thread, like ZetaBoards has.
What about that thing JediFan34 suggested in the old thread, about reloading polls inline when you vote in them. Also multiple polls per thread sounds cool.
Like your suggestions so far.

Since I posted this, two new dev posts have been made. Be sure to check them out and keep making suggestions. Biggrin
I've updated the post with more dev posts and the fact the MyBB 2 Github repository have gone public.

Still looking for any suggestions.
I'm bumping this up to inform everyone that MyBB 2 will be delayed and a 1.10 version will be made in the mean time which will include things like a mobile theme and bumping the PHP requirements. Still open to more features suggestions.
Have you ever considered removing some of the useless things I see floating around.

- The Lite (Archive) Mode
- View a Printable Version
- Send this Thread to a Friend (who in 2017 shares stuff via email? Links to Facebook/Twitter are far more useful for sharing threads.)
- Threaded Mode

Are any of these necessary to keep?

EDIT: Maybe Thread Ratings too.
I'll resuggest my above suggestion of Multiple polls per thread. Wink

I agree, I've never seen a use for those things.

I agree, those things could go.
What about liking a post?
