a) The Attachment MOD is going to be a huge change, with tentacles into nearly every file and modifications to the database;
b) The base install needs to be updated from (currently) 2.0.19 to 2.0.22.
With a MODed board, every time the base install changes the MODs have to be re-applied, and each one of the MODs have to be re-investigated to see if they have had updates as well, and if new problems have cropped up or been squashed.
It's a lot of work -- esp. if you want to be doing something else.
With that preamble in mind, here is the list (in order of proposed application) of MODs that are already, or will be in future, applied to this forum software:
