I disagree... If a feature is popular, people usually expect it... And >I< want to have a software that is up to date keeps up with the time.

Re: +1, Like, or something similar

Facebook is an advertising company. People share and they sell. The relationship is parasitic.
...so what???
Despite the fact that it is not wrong to make money... Just because Facebook is evil we have to avoid everything they do???

I don't need it... But well, I think phpBB should be up to date - and in fact it is NOT.

Re: Prevent posting two times in a row

a) What difference does it make if they break a 20k char post down into 4 posts all together or separated by another user? Big difference. We forced user to first THINK before they write, to make it short and don't write essays via copy/paste. We also prevented a lot of copyright problems by this. ...

Re: Prevent posting two times in a row

The main one is to prevent double posting for same user. Why is that a problem? a) We want to limit the posts to 5000 charachters (we had posts with 20.000 characters and more, and this is simply too much). We use the character limit for that, but the users can overcome the limit simply by double p...

Re: Quote that advice the quoted user

anyway so you're likely to carry on reading where you left off Well, we all know topics which are more like a chat than a forum. People are posting in minute cycle. Here Atm I have the choice of reading all or reading nothing. A notify if I've been quoted wouldn't be that bad for such topics. regar...

Re: +1, Like, or something similar

It makes no sense having static icons "uploadable". There is no need to change this stuff on a regular base. Icons are usually created when the forum goes online and stay how they are most of the time. Why should you change your like-icon every two weeks?

Re: +1, Like, or something similar

by allowing each admin to pick what his/her options are called. Yes, but you can handlet this via the language-System... I can see 4 options, Allow none, allow positive ratings, allow negative ratings or allow both Yep, that's much better. My solution where is possible to choose if use text, direct...

Re: WYSIWYG editor

I have no problem with an off-switch. I just don't think its neccessary... that there has to be a motive not to include it. IF there is a motiv... I'd like to know. Sometimes (especially when I read the reactions of the new feature suggestions) I have the feeling that phpBB Admins are a little antiq...

Re: WYSIWYG editor

Nonsense, it's *my* forum, not the users, I pay the bills, I run it, I should be able to choose Why? You also don't need to choose if the useres want to sort the topics via date or via subject... It would make sense if an WYSIWIG needs more server performance something like that. But it won't effec...
