[New Feature] Multi-Instance + Third Party
As we are all aware, quite a handful of people are trying to use multiple instances of MyBB that share the same >User< database. While yes, some tutorials are floating around, those with no code understanding or knowledge of inner-workings of database linking and setup, they are a huge daunting task that ultimately leads to failure.

What I propose is a very small change from my point of view:
-Separate the User database from forum specific fields.

The way I think it could work is the Username, Password, Hash; and things that don't change like: Birthday, Join Date, User ID.

Then since that is separated,  it should be easier to implement a system where multiple instances can be used all while using the same Userbase.

The third party setup I'm not sure how it could work, but MyBB is a foruming software, one of the most open and supported, but people need things like dedicated photo galleries, dedicated file upload sites to keep MyBB running fast. There are plenty more that can be listed but as you guys know, the list is long. 

I'm not expecting it anytime soon, but could it be in a possible future version? Having this type of features will completely set MyBB apart from other forum software because they don't have third party integration. | Get your first month of hosting for $0.01 USD with Promo Code: Hexeus
