Too many to count.
Sent to the MOD-DB?

Smaller number, but don't actually remember. I have two in the queue to be validated right now, and one more to submit soon.
and actually got validated?

It was an interesting question, so I went and tried to search to see what I had. :-) I have 8 MODs validated and in the MOD-DB at this time. :-)
  • Fix Forum Order (Corrected SQL code in quite a few places to make the forums come out in the proper order)
  • Hide New Forums (Set initial permissions to new forums to "admin" so you have time to set permissions before the forum is visible)
  • Longer Subjects (instructions for making your post / topic subject longer)
  • Search Title Only (as stated)
  • Default Shadow Topics Off (essentially a one-line MOD :-D)
  • Local Links (Don't open a new window for forum links)
  • Lock / Unlock on Posting (MMW Round 1)
  • Annual Stars (a personal favorite of mine)
I had others earlier on, but at one point (I think it was when 2.0.6 came out) they purged the entire MOD database and made all the authors revalidate their code because of the number of changes. I never bothered to do that, so my MODs got dropped. They were all smallish MODs anyway.

The MODs I have in Development that I intend to release are the [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=290219]Page Permissions[/url] (submitted for revalidation), [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=442136]EZ Registration[/url] (submitted), and [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=445422&highlight=memberlist]Memberlist Controls[/url] (posted here, soon to be submitted for validation), and [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=442670]Forum Auth by Post Count[/url] (also soon to be submitted).

I'm working on [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=415468]Topic Points (MMW)[/url].

All of these will get completed / released this year. I also started a [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=357812]"Search Stopwords Manager"[/url] that will be really cool once it's done, but it's on the back burner for the moment. Also a [url=http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=372982]Pruning Users[/url] MOD that I really need, so it will get completed. It's a different approach than other user pruning / deleting programs use.

I have quite a few more MODs that I've written up and released on my phpBB site and never bothered to submit... usually because there was already something similar, but sometimes because I just didn't want to. :-) I've written "Send Forgotten Username", "Resend Activation Email", "Remove 'Edited by...' Message for Admins", "Hide IP Button from Moderators", "Clickable Forum Icons", an individual forum "banner" MOD, a whole bunch of others.

I've written my own digest MOD, sends out a daily summary of forum activity to any user that subscribes, offers the ability to request text or html email, specify 5 day delivery (M-F) or seven (S-S), allows selecting of individual forums or the entire board... I'm quite pleased with it and use it on my largest board. It's partially written in perl, so it will never get released.

I have another MOD I've written and installed for a number of clients, I call it "My Forum". It allows a user to specify which forums they do / don't want to see, and which forums they do / don't want to search. It allows the admin to specify which forums must be visible so that users can't hide things like the "Announcements" forum. It's all written in php, but will never be released because I don't want to write it up and don't want to support it. :-) I've even customized it to work with simple sub-forums for one client, and rewritten some parts of that MOD (simple sub-forums) to make it more efficient. Got to, when your client's server is running at 120% of capacity... :o

One MOD written for a client... "new topic" flood control. Allows a board admin to set a limit (in minutes) for each individual forum as to how many new topics a user can start. So a limit could be set to allow a user to start - at most - 1 new topic in a 24 hour period, if you wanted. Or 6 hours, or 10 minutes, or whatever. A value of zero turned that feature off. Took about two hours to write, test, debug, and deliver to the client. They paid for it, then six months later switched from phpBB to vB. Ha. :-)

So how many MODs have I written? :-D Too many to count. Fun to do though, I love this stuff.
