Looking for a person/persons with extensive Vbulletin knowledge to update and improve and existing addon for a forum.
The original script is gorgeous for its simplicity and for being fully working on vb3.8.4 without a problem, time to take it ahead! It seems the original coder(Blaine) dropped it, and for what I read in the forums, he also gave permission to modify the original script, that is attached down here.
Please install to fully understand the requests, thank you!
The origianl post on [url removed, login to view] is here: [url removed, login to view]
-Removal of outibid PM to themself: if you bid 5, then you change your mind and bid 10, you get the outbid pm to yourself. should check if bidder and outbidded are the same user and skip.
-Removal/skip of additional data request when user use for the first time vbay, users will contract via PM everything, address, shipping..
-Removal of info exchange from PM at the auction end(infos not entered as above),
I mean, leave the winning/selling PM, but removal of the infos inside it.
-Removal of settings menu from My Vbay.(not needed anymore).
-Add tiny thumbnail at the left of title of the auction in the lists.
-Add a "PM seller" link in the right column, near seller name or some nice place.
-Intelligent bidding, it's not possible that if UserA bids $5 and UserB bids $20, the price instead of going to $6 rockets to $20. Need some kind of proxy bidding like on ebay..
-Check of uploaded images' size/weight and resize/crunch to max/jpeg factor allowed in ACP.
-Feedback system, even very simple, just positive, negative, in numbers. and if got them as seller or buyer. ebay look and feel. like the one you can see here, with feedback integrated in the profile:

Willing to buy this hack if needed by the winning coder.
Feedback rating ofcurse also need to be shown in the auction page, near seller name, with link to the page in the profile. Link to the feedform in My Vbay like "Leave feedback for transactions" and all closed deal in need of a feedback are shown..
-Ability for sellers to cancel the ongoing adds(sold somewhere else for example).
-Removal of bid increment option on the user side, leave 1 by default or make it selectable in AdminCP.
-Add a security checkbox for confirming/activating place bid button.
-When listing, removal of payment section, sellers will write in the adds how they want to be paid. So removal of payment information from auction listing and everywhere.
-Limitation of the number of images uploaded by user in the ACP and removal of the image number selection in the listing process, if max number set is 5, users can upload up to 5 files.
-Option in ACP to select how long a closed auction will stay viewable by users before complete deletion from system(including images ofcoz).
-Basic search function.(only auction title)
-Basic fee system based on closing price(that can be turned on/off from ACP)..
should work like this, in ACP the admin select the % of the closing price to be paid as fee,
and also decide the maximum debit sellers can have, when a seller reach the max(eg 20 bucks or more if the last auction generated more fees than the maximum established in ACP, example, ACP set max 20 bucks debit, user have $18 fees and last auction generate $4 of fees, debit will be $22 even if maximum set in ACP is 20) he cannot open any more auctions and already opened ones are frozen, till seller dont pay the fees with paypal via button placed in user CP to a given email in ACP. the fees can be paid anytime, from a set minimum in ACP to the actual debt. Once paid, the user will have the debit estinguished.
That's all, open to any suggestions that will make the project lighter on your side to make,
final project to be given in standard vbulletin product format, with no template edits as the original Vbay. 30 days guarantee for fine tuning and small fixes. Fully tested and bug free on vb3.8.4.
With Phrases so I can translate it.
Thanks to everyone!!
