One of the things not yet well developed in GL is the whole idea of site Members from a Member (not admin) perspective:

- Finding them via a usable list
(more usable than forum members)

- Sorting on them
Sort asc/des on column headers for:
Name, email, posts, City or location, etc. etc

- Group emailing them
Checkbox column next to each name of found set
Allow email to checked option

- IM with status indicator online/offline
Links to IM user via IM application

Beyond that, I think it should be considered to allow members to fill out information about themselves in a data-normalized fashion so that info about them is valid and categorizable (Basically I mean, not just a text field)

Some basic categories to allow users to group themselves into:
Geography - zip code, postal code or city

Age - if displayed, age brackets

Interests - maybe based on Open Directory categories?

Finally, and these are just vague ideas, some way for affinity information like on Friendster could be allowed for.
Checking off what types of frienships you seek
And allowing for trusts of other site members (level 1, 2, 3)

This would all have to be road-mapped if anyone were interested.....

Take care

Sounds like a great idea for a plugin!
