Re: Heard about Bitcoin ?

I currently use Bitcoin to pay for my Virtual Private Servers and I've used it for making (legal) donations before as well. I think that it's great that people can post a bitcoin address on the internet to receive payment so easily. Sure, people use bitcoin (with Tor) for illegal purposes, but it's ...

Re: how do you market a free site with no money?

Put a Bitcoin donation address at the bottom of the page. It works (at least a little bit) for TPB. ;)

Re: I want to change text on Registration form

In the root directory of your phpBB board, open language/en/ucp.php and search for 'USERNAME_CHARS_ANY_EXPLAIN'. You can edit the text next to it.

Re: HOW to STOP FAKE ACCOUNTS??

5. So then I was told to install a Q&A and put all typed of Q/A's.. They are blowing by them as well?????? After you set the Q&A CAPTCHA, you need to check the Inactive Users list for spammers that have already registered but not yet activated. That's one way they make it seem like the Q&A isn't wo...

The iPhone is a jail, so unless you can get a specific app approved for your site by Apple, nobody can use it.

Re: What’s the best way to stop someone from bogus messages.

What is the best way to stop someone from just blasting bogus messages all about the forums? Technically there is no way. I'm sure the user in question will eventually get bored of getting banned and will leave anyway. I've seen MODs for confusing people though. Or you could confuse him/her by sett...

Actually, given my poor health and the fact that my to do list is at least as high as the Empire State building, it may take more than a year. Thus, my horror in reading about this upgrade of phpbb. Unless phpBB 3.1 is released soon, I would guess that phpBB 3.0 will be supported for at least anoth...

Re: [Discuss] phpBB 3.1 "Ascraeus" to require PHP 5.3.2

PHP 5.2.17 with FastCGI was the default on the three Bluehost installations I've encountered. Using FastCGI will save resources, and overall, it does serve pages faster. FastCGI being faster doesn't mean PHP 5.2 being faster. Regarding benchmarks, apparently PHP 5.3 is faster than 5.2: https://duck...
