Re: Discussion: phpBB is falling behind?

I think microblogging will become the preferred platform for online discussion soon. I think many will choose to run something like Status.net over traditional forum software.

Re: Illegal activity going on at a phpBB forum

The most clever forum spam ever! :D That's really quite unnecessary. PhilMullen, as per Tom, the board in question is not hosted by us, and we have no control over it. If you feel strongly about this, then your best bet would be to contact the authorities with any proof of illegal activity. Somethi...

Re: What do you want in phpBB4?

You noticed that you can configure this? Play around with the "Display active topics" setting. ;) Thanks for the info. I will look into that. But still... they are not "sets". They are nothing more than forums having a parent forum assigned. There is no other connection or implicit meaning. Ok. I r...

Re: What do you want in phpBB4?

I know I would be very confused if posts from subforums showed up in the parent forums. By the way, have you looked at a category's post list? http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewforum.php?f=52 No it would not be confusing if the the subforums' posts showed up in the parent forum. Subforum posts dis...

Re: What do you want in phpBB4?

Come on. "Sub" forums implies more than just the physical location of where a completely separate forum is located. The terminology parent/child forums is also often used. One would expect a "parent" forum to include the posts of an included child forum. People have also become more experienced with...

Re: What do you want in phpBB4?

I would like subforums to finally behave like subforums. A subset is a smaller set that is also completely included in a larger set. The way these so called "subforums" are working now is that the posts in the subforums do not also appear in the parent forum. I don't know why they even bother to cal...

Re: Anyone use phpadnews with phpbb3?

Yes, as ToonArmy said, first they were PhpAdsNew, then OpenAds, now OpenX. They got $20.5 Mil in Venture funding. That's how they're able to afford to keep changing their name.

Re: phpBB as a starting point for an open source democracy?

I just wanted to add a word of encouragement here. Starting with phpbb v5, communal decentralized moderation features became default. This has enabled many forums across the web to behave in the way that Mills describes. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5#p7651125

Re: Which is the best

5.0.4 is considered by most to be the best. It was the first version to have the new communal decentralized moderation features, and has been shown over time to be the most stable version.

Re: phpbb terms of use?

I think the only other thing you need to know other than it's GPLv2 is that if you want to get support for your board from phpbb.com you need to keep the footer "Powered by phpBB © 2000, 2002, 2005, 2007 phpBB Group" displayed on your board.
