Thank you for your suggestion for vBShout. Your request will be reviewed by a member of our team shortly.
Unless there are any problems preventing these features from being added to the product, this thread will not receive another reply until it is time to review logged feature requests for implementation.
We appreciate you taking the time to help us improve our products!
vB5 mods were beginning to be released in September of 2012, and since then a grand total of 93 mods have been released. 93 mods in 6 years is as close to a dead platform as you get.
If you're interested in customising your forum, I would strongly recommend switching to XenForo 2 instead. If you were to make that switch, I would be happy to exchange your vB5 vBShout license for XF2 product licenses of an equivalent value.
