    ^ I don't think there's gonna be news about it, unless somebody requests it :)

    So yes, 1+ from me, it would be an awesome feature. I was actually little surprised to find out, it did not exist by default.

    And to why: Registration is registration and thus basic feature. Invites are something that I see as a user privilege for trusted members.

    This could even easily be extended to badges/ user Karma, 'Member with most quality recruits.' etc.

  • Where is the probelem? If the forum is "open" why they need "invitation" (and invitation code?). Every member should pick their e-mail and send a mass-mail to their contact: ehy come on this place (link to forum) it's awesome.... i "suggest" you (suggest, not invite).

    So you want a user to register and then the ability to send mass email?

    @AndRos There are cases that forum is not open and more like a private community.

    Every member should pick their e-mail and send a mass-mail to their contact

    I think that's called spamming ;) Restricted invitation mode (which is already in the source) is more delicate and polite way and most likely will result 'better' new members. But in case somebody browsing teh Internets happens to find my community by accident, it would be nice to give them a chance to register still, without having the invitation code.
