    I've been searching through Xenforo add ons a while looking for ways to add extra features to the site, and I just felt more users should be aware of them. It's how I put in some of the site's features like the chat/shoutbox, the RSVP system, the article system. If any of you find some good add ons to suggest let me know:

    Went through 50+ pages. Here're the ones I think should be implemented.

    Just in case ;)

    Would be neat to see who voted for what in a poll.

    Play .mp3 files in a thread, possibly in chat also.

    I think adding a few games to the forums would be neat, considering this is a videogame forum.

    Pac Man
    Prince of Persia

    YOU NEED TO GET THIS. I'll give you a 5$ amazon card to cover the costs if you'd like

    A sound notification for chat would be helpful

    Looks good, I'd already have it if it wasn't a paid add on.

    Maybe, but I'm skeptical of that, I had something similar in vB3 and ad revenue wasn't all that large back then. It might be feasible if I had more traffic.

    Nah, don't want to make the chat too cluttered and I imagine I'd be trying to click like on a message only to have the chat scroll down and accidentally like someone else's post.

    I can't really think of any situation where I've needed something like this.

    It doesn't show who voted for what, just who voted, and the majority of polls here show who voted for them anyway. Kind of defeats the purpose of a "private poll" to show who voted for it. I'd be better off just disabling a user's ability to create a private poll, that'd be more honest. The only time I can think of using this is if I suspect someone of cheating in a poll but this has never actually happened.

    Probably wouldn't want it in chat but maybe in posts so long as it doesn't auto play.

    I don't want to let people just embed any flash file. A lot of them can crash the browser, create pop ups, redirects, etc.

    So it's just an add on to embed one specific flash game? Kind of indifferent. I guess it wouldn't hurt but it doesn't really affect the forums all that much. It's like an add on to embed one specific video or something.

    Edit: Response to your edit

    Can't everybody already color their text on the forum? Seems kind of silly to me. You're essentially just paying so you don't have to use the color code bbcode selector. But if you're really that adamant about it and are willing to pay for it yourself send to my PayPal please since that's the payment method they accept. sr@vgi.me
    I personally would not use this. I prefer the title change notification. I suppose so long as it's free and there's a way for users to disable it I could install it on the off chance someone else wants to use it.
