Just want to ask a few questions that just came to me about this while working on integrating my webmail client into my website.
With this API, will it be able to do the following things:
-Register users (I'm pretty sure you already said yes to this.)
-Edit member's information, like name, custom profile fields, title.
-Change User's group?
-Edit member's password?
-Edit member's email address?
-Automatic Logging in (Being able to log in from another website)
-Set moderators for forums?
-Manage Validating users?
-Submit and edit member's awards?
That is all I can think of for now.
If the stuff on that list is done, I would simply be in heaven. I have been able to integrate almost everything on all of my other services that have to do with my website (chat services, wiki, email client) but it just isn't doable on the forums, and if the stuff on the list is done, my problems will be solved.
Also, I was wondering, if certain things were going to be added to the API, would there be a way to disable users changing the information on the forums, and rather require them to do it on my main website? Like instead of a user being able to change their password on the forum, they have to do it in their profile of my website, so that it changes the password for ALL of my site's services. If they were able to change it on the forums, it would mess up the whole single sign on idea of having everything integrated.
If you can let me know on this stuff, much appreciated.
