ZetaBoards Dynamo - AiO's Sequel!

Hi guys! For the last 3 weeks or so I've been working on a sequel to the AiO (http://resources.zetaboards.com/topic/5093305/) called Dynamo. Dynamo is an advanced modification for ZetaBoards and will offer everything the AiO did, except a lot quicker and will offer a lot more functionality. What exactly will it offer?

  • Money per post/topic
  • Board notifications for the following reasons:
    • Donations
    • Reputation
    • Username change accepted by admin
    • Promotion to another user group
    • etc etc

  • Bank
    • Transaction history
    • Interest
    • Deposit/ Withdraw
    • Donate

  • User reputation
    • Dynamic reputation power

  • 5 Star topic ratings
  • Thumbs up/ thumbs down post ratings
  • Shop
    • Sell items
    • Buy items
    • Vouchers/ Coupons
    • Donate items

  • Casino
    • Lottery
    • Scratch cards
    • Fruit machines

  • Board Advertising
    • Advanced statistics
    • Pay per click/ view (using Dynamo money)

  • Awards (Same as my advanced award system, but integrated into this code)
  • Post competition
    • Prizes for winners
    • Look back at past competitions
    • Leaderboards


As with the AiO, every single feature can be turned off with just one click in the Dynamo ACP. Dynamo integrates the user groups by allowing you to change their individual settings. For example, administrators can earn $100 per post, members can earn $5 per post, etc etc. The possibilities are endless with this system.

What's even better about this is the loading times. If you decide you are looking for a reputation system for example, you don't need to be worried about installing such a large system on your forum as it knows not to load anything BUT the reputation system. To reiterate, this will only load what you want it to load.



I'm roughly 38% of the way through the project (see the offline message here for full details). However, I am looking for suggestions on how to make this even better, or if you have some ideas on other features to add into the system I'd love to hear it. I'm open to any suggestions/ comments or feedback!

Sounds good. :) Is there any chance a donation log could be added, to show who donated to who? And perhaps a PM when you get a new donation as I quite often miss the little notification in the corner. This would be really useful. :)

There's an entire section in the bank for transaction history which includes donation logs already :) . This still uses the notification system but I do know it is easy to miss. When you receive a PM on ZB you receive a small notification once and then a number next to inbox until you actually read it. I might do something similar so there is a number next to the Dynamo link at the top telling you there is still transaction history to be read in case you missed the notification.

I will be adding some screenshots later :) .

As name changes are done via the ACP that won't be possible, but the shop system will be having a major revamp including but not limited to dynamic items - therefore name effects may come in to play ;). If you have any other suggestions I'll consider them.

If you would like to test it on a ZB forum, our NationStates community would be happy to try a beta.

Will the "Zetaboards Dynamo" system be free to use? like the ZbAiO?

For the tests i can use Safari or Firefox on my mac.
Hoping for some screenshots soon!

Good luck!

This sounds pretty amazing! Name effects would be something great to have, considering as of now it's all done manually.

Can't wait to see the finished product! I could also beta test (Chrome v.20 on Win. 7) if you need any additional testers.

Dynamo will be free to use, but like the current AiO there will be a premium upgrade to access all of the features - more to come on this later though.

As I said I do need a lot of testers for this project, however chrome 20+ is the one browser I don't need testing in as I'm using that when developing it :) .
