There's a couple of thing I'd like to modify for featured members in JomSocial.
I'd like the featured members to remain featured forever. Currently they only remain featured via the featured limit in the component back end. So it might be better to have a plugin or module rather than modifying core files.
I'd like to overlay the avatar with a small image to indicate that they are featured. I'd love for this to integrate with other components such as Kunena but I'm not sure how difficult that would be.
I'd like to have a module to display x number of featured members similar to the way Top Members are displayed minus the karma points or the way they are displayed in when choosing view all members.
I'm not a coder. I can make sense of PHP somewhat, as in reading it. However, I don't know the rules to writing PHP. With that said, I may need a lot of help.
