Having been through a Leave of Absence recently, and having had experience with myself and other clan mates from countless other games experiencing the same drag that real-life can offer, I think a LoA Appendage would be a great addition to both the Member Settings page and as a signature-like post addition.

It'd allow people to see if they will get a reply from another poster, allow members to keep track of other community members and be a great function for clan leaders to have their members make use of. Its a pretty small addition as it stands, but hopefully that will reflect in the amount of work required to make it happen successfully.

Anyone else think of anything they'd like to see on their user page? MySpace addresses? Multiple signatures/Avatars for rotation? Medal and Pin awards? Dating information?

This sounds like a good idea but could you elaborate on how you would want it to work?

Do you just want a place in the user page to say you will be taking a LoA for X days (and have it auto put something in your sig)?

This could be a very easy addition to make.

You have also brought up another good idea about expanding the number of enterable fields for the user section.

We could add myspace info, youtube info, etc.

The question is what does everyone want to see?

As for multi sigs/avatars, that would be a bit more work but could be added over time.

I think it would be great to have, along with the registration dates, three statuses (stati?)

Active (member has logged at least once every 21 days)
MIA (member has not logged in, in over a month)
LOA (Member has an informed time of absense (a countdown timer would be cool too, going to MIA status if the member hasnt logged in before it runs out))

Ooh, good call GH. Automated activity titles would be a nice touch, could even just have icons for ACTIVE, MIA, LOA aligned right next to the username on posts.

My full idea for LOA was to have a user set a START and an END date for their Leave, along with a 255 character reason that would top off their user page when they set their LOA. If you want you could set a maximum LOA of 3 months, but thats probably not necessary.

You could set user pages to INACTIVE after a year and use KIA/DISHONOURABLE DISCHARGE instead of BANNED.

[EDIT]: OHH, multiple signatures and avatar for rotation was just a pipe dream, way to much work for such a small gain and its just plain overkill...

This is something I'm not sure about, but what about not showing unused fields on User pages? No emtpy lines for AIM address, BIOs etc that havent yet been entered. It might stream line the page, but I'm not sure if its worth keeping them there as an acknowledgement of not having a certain system for contact.
