Account deletion at tracker.phpbb.com

I'd like my account at https://tracker.phpbb.com deleting please. I do not see a way to do this myself.

Same username as on here.


EDIT: OK, I forgot that it's actually one account used here for the community and the tracker. Never mind.

Re: Update to 3.2.0 using Automatic Update

http://www.cantodellasfinge.net/phpBB32/install/ when I visit that page I get the install page perfectly fine. This is why nothing gets fixed around here...You know full well that the link in the ACP is wrong, you've even previously commented on my posting about it. And yet here you are acting as t...

Re: Update to 3.2.0 using Automatic Update

Your /install directory is still present. Delete it. It's a bug, you end up in a loop of trying to update, as you just end up being told to delete the install folder while trying to progress. I've posted about this countless times. - https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-14998 1/ Upload the insta...

Re: why is it ALWAYS such a headache to upgrade this software???

Far too many edits for me to do that Robert...A lot of the edits are done in the template files. This was all done to prosilver btw. I've used additional add on styles before but with the number of changes between a standard prosilver I found it too time consuming to run two styles. Hence I just imp...

Re: why is it ALWAYS such a headache to upgrade this software???

Of course I don't, but that is the only real difference the man in the street will see. Man in the street sees near zero difference when looking at a 3.1 or 3.2 board...And yet I've got all this damn hassle. So PHP7 support then...and a load of other techy jargon that I'm not really interested in w...

Re: why is it ALWAYS such a headache to upgrade this software???

I've been through the auto update and it won't work...All I see is 'You shouldn't modify the core', the auto update should be dropped blah blah. I realise it's an upgrade, of all the 'updates' I ever did right through 3.0 up to 3.1 I never had an issue with tons of modified/hand coding, but these 'u...

Re: why is it ALWAYS such a headache to upgrade this software???

Just tried the file replacement method that everybody bangs on about, on a test/mirrored board. There's no way I can upgrade with that method, I'm losing most of my site! All the thousands of hours over the years that I've put into it and it would all be gone! Missing pages, missing information, com...

Re: Open external links in new tab/window

And you may be surprised how many webdevs think W3 is utter rubbish Robert :D To say that most abide by them is incorrect from what I see personally. And according to google (Who are far, far more relevant imo) it's a good way to work having Important internal pages, open in the same tab...External ...

Re: Open external links in new tab/window

It's pretty obvious what he wants. It's right there in the first post. External links to open in a new window, ideally without using an extension. Simple. THIS ^^ I know this breaks XHTML convention but as a forum admin i dont want users taken away from my forum when they click an external link. An...

Re: How to center logo in 3.2?

It would be far less problematic if those who do modify were catered for... :roll: you are catered to as you always have been, that is what the auto update is for. I would assume that anyone that is making core code changes would have enough knowledge to be able to use the auto update method proper...

Re: why is it ALWAYS such a headache to upgrade this software???

I agree with Robert (Lumpy) his method as with many others here with upgrading to any major version should NOT use the auto upgrade options. (This should be eliminated) from our ACP in future upgrades. What percentage of phpBB users do you think would be lost because of that? Not catering for those...
