Mystery Poster 1.0 beta 1

Per request:

Link removed, MysteryPoster 1.0 is now in mod database


This mod allows the Admin to specify a board where all users can post as a "Mystery Poster". The persona of the mystery poster is set by the Admin. Members check a box on the posting page to designate a post as coming from the mystery poster. Once a post is made as the mystery poster only the Admin or Moderators may modify/delete it. The admin will still have access to the actual posters' IP addresses.

You can try it out here:

After you eliminate all of the possibilities,
whatever is left, no matter how seemingly impossible,
must be the truth.

This is a great mod.  Many of my users want to post anonymously, but I want to keep an eye on who posts, via IP address (and I have guest posting enabled).  To enable mystery_poster for every board, just delete the code related to "$mysteryboard" in the mod and delete the 3 times "&& ( $currentboard eq $mysteryboard )" is used.  It helps to know a little perl, but this is an easy one (5-6 deletions).

Good mod.

Does this mod allow multiple mystery poster personas per board?

I'd love to setup a board where the premise is that there's only two characters, so people replying have to pick one of the two to have a game conversation going back and forth.  It'd be kind of like a meta-fictional story board type deal.

The mod only supports a single persona but modifying it for two wouldn't take a huge effort.  Simply go through the mod file and double all the new code, adding a 2 after anything that says mysteryposter.  Okay, it's a little more involved than that but not much.

Thanks Dan.  I was planning to try to do that if you said no, but I thought I might as well try asking first. Wink

Hey Dan,

I've had a lot of requests to allow users to change the name of the mystery poster.  Maybe you could do this using a javascript to add a text field to the posting form so that once you click the checkbox the Name Field will appear.  (Just a thought)

As I've said before, my users, and myself, love this mod.  It gives the anonymity that registered users want, but allows the admin to keep track of who is posting what sincethey have to login.

Is there anyway that you might add this feature for the next build.
