Other previous projects
I use (or have used) XenForo community software as part of websites I have created or been a part of. Some of these sites warranted bespoke features or functionality - in response, I have scripted some extensions to the XenForo software to try and accomodate these features.
Some of the plugins I have written include:
- An attendance tracking system (like Eventbrite).
- A game server status checker and remote rebooter, coupled with action auditing.
- A game player names and playtime tracking database.
- A bespoke player banning and historical ban database to tie-in with Garry's Mod.
XenForo takes advantage of MVC (Model View Controller) and Object-Oriented programming, which makes it great to customise.
Sourceauth was a hobby project to create a database-powered access and authentication system for games powered by the Source Engine (e.g. Team Fortess, CounterStrike, etc.)
The software was able to permit access to registered users and authorised guests, without the need of a server password.
The project is no longer publicly available, but remnants of the project may be obtained on request.
The original Alteran Labs was a community forum for fans of the Stargate franchise. It was one of my first properly-hosted websites and my first experience using PHP software and MySQL databases.
The community ceased operation in 2007 as members of the community went their own ways.
