Re: Message Edit history

If you think about it more detailled then there's much more to be stored for each post's version: subject, text, options, attachments, parent topic, parent forum, author, edit reason, icon... And when it's the first of a topic then even more can change: poll options, poll settings, topic type, topic...

Re: How many hours to build a basic phpBB forum?

Based on the replies in How qualified do you need to be to set up and run a phpBB based forum? you should have experienced that yourself by now. If all preconditions are met then installing 3.0.14 could have been done in about 10 minutes. Nowaday's 3.2.8 might need longer or is equally fast. You spe...

Depends, but at least where one of the posts is yours.

To me almost all of them are still useful, i.e. when checking all topics I've posted in or my subscriptions to see which have new replies (with the latter not needing to have posts from me).

Re: Why get unregistered forum visitors persistent cookies?

AFAIK, any of them fulfills the requirements I think you mean "none", not "any". storing a persistent cookie for just browsing a website/forum cannot be justified with "technical requirement" Not to you, but to all others: the point in here is "persistent" - GDPR/EPD accepts session cookies in gene...

looks to be half of it - the other half would be, of course, ["post-to-mail"]
Same to you: if you do both posting and reading thru e-mails then why is there a need for a website at all? What you want is a discussion list, not a bulletin board nobody ever actively visits.

Re: post/reply via email?

No, as the BB in phpBB stands for bulletin board. What you want is a discussion list, because if all your users want to communicate thru e-mail there's no need for a website at all.

Why would anyone want to enter Unicode sequences as ASCII
You mean entities? For the same odd reason why characters would be stored like this in the database. I, however, want to actually enter/copy/paste characters, not pictures representing them. And/or search for them.
