Right now I think we have enough mods already, plus the forums have slowed down a lot. I don't think we will need any more mods or global mods until probably a few months from now when the forums are upgraded and start being used more.
Can you give some hints on what are you planning to change on the forums? I'd love to see it revive :)
Going to start on upgrades fairly soon (after all the blog upgrade stuff is finally done). Here is a quick run down off the top of my head of some changes that will be made:
- An actual "Search" page for searching through forums + the site
- User post history and better user profiles
- Somewhat improved design / UI for forum functions
- Ability to have sub-forums
- Different sorting options besides only ever sorting by "most recently replied"
- Reddit style upvote/downvote system, which is replacing the current "likes" system
- Reddit style nested comment threads
- Possibly some sort of tipping system (integrating Changetip could be pretty cool)
