(This topic is based on my older Support topic on ME homepage.)
My idea was to re-use the comments system for an "attendance" feature. Also known as "RSVP".
Users should be able to order a "seat" for an event/workshop etc.
Resources 1.5 comments lacked the follwing things:
- Not full customizable/replacable text strings
- No limit for comments
- List/Show all commenters in module or extra list view
In my humble opinion, the comments system is not a bad solution. It just needs some tweaks and parameters. Authors should be able to set a limit for available "seats". More or less it behaves like comments moderation. Author gets message, and decides if attendance will be granted. Availability is displayed in frontend and adjusted accordingly...
Or does it make more sense to develop a new advanced field?
Thanks for listening.

Text formatting, moved to C8 category
