We can put together a Facebook type community script (1 post)

    Yes it is quite possible because most of the components are already there as plugins. What is missing is putting them together and tweaking them for a unified purpose.

    Facebook does an advanced version of this (with many more stuff we don't really need). But the logic is the same and from what I gather through my search there is a high demand for it.

    Most of the Work is already done. For instance there are wordpress plugins to:
    - Let a user upload a photo as part of his profile info
    - Let admins create custom fields for users to fill as an extended profile (Userextra and Usermeta)
    - general photo upload and gallery plugins
    - and other tweaks to Author page views and author information.

    But they have to be put together into common input/display structures. For input structure there is the admin tabs, but display is a mess. There are few plugins to display stuff.

    I would go right ahead and do this but I have limited php knowledge. Anyone want to join in?

    P.S. WordPress MU would not do this job, I can explain later...
