What's up with the larger font size?

I've noticed that the board now sports a larger font size. Any comments?

Also (someone) please set me straight. I think I'm seeing different font styles and sizes horribly clashing with each other. How many dissimilar fonts and text sizes are on this page?

Money must not be tossed aside simply because I assert that throwing money away is ludicrous.

This is not an official feature request. I'm just dreaming.

Colin, If you have any insights about creating forums that are so interesting that you have to beat your audience off with a stick, please share them with me. I wish for what you dread. I want to have a lot of people just reading and searching my board--sucking up bandwidth. How do I create that del...

wouldn't it be a good idea to force people to login before viewing posts on the forums? I think it's a ridiculous idea, unless, of course, you consider inconveniencing people an asset. that would prevent a lot of people from just reading and searching the boards, taking up bandwidth wouldn't it? I ...

Re: Where are we at? See http://phpbb.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/vie ... highlight= This link is the most information disclosed on the forum in regard to time. They're aren't going to say more until php 2.0 is ready for a final release so don't ask.

All bulletin boards I know work in real time. However, you do ask an interesting question. Is this a feature that enough administrators could use to justify the programming talent that it would take to add this capability? I for one can see its usefulness in specific forums. You've made me curious a...

Variable column widths

the only problems that I have seen with netscape is that the tables sometimes come Co really screwy (NS 4 series) I sometimes have that problem with IE 5.5 but I'm not concerned. I just refresh the screen and the table corrects itself. What happens to me is that the first two columns at http://phpb...

Why not use the same categories that yahoo uses? Their topic outline seems very comprehensive to me.

That’s a problem that another person had. See http://phpbb.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/vie ... highlight=

I was disappointed that no developer came on to discuss the problem.

I’m not surprised

Just from reading the many crises and requests for help mentioned on your threads I was thinking you guys must be having major problems.

Better yet, the potential user could be prompted for a real email address up front and a display address which could be one of those easily made free ones.

Would it be easy to create a feature in some future version of phpbb that would automatically prevent all free email accounts from registering? Since phpbb2.0 has private messaging and has the capability of hiding the users real email address, I see no reason why anyone could not comply with a reque...

Can't post curly quotes

With the final release of phpBB2, I was delighted to find that "curly quotes" post correctly. I usually write my posts in MS word for spell checking and then copy and paste into phpBB's posting text box. But something happened since I reformatted my HD yesterday. The only thing that I can imagine is...

Like Bear, I'm going to change the word Announcement to Important and Sticky to Notice . Let me know if you get a better response from your users. I'm one of those patient ones who are waiting for the final release of phpbb 2.0. I'd like all my users to see perfection from the beginning. :oops:

Rename them?

Is it possible to rename them? Say "Announcements" could become "Important" and "Stickies" could become "Notice." The users at my board understand announcements but have a tough time with stickies. What files would I need to modify? I think the word sticky is meaningless to everyone but the program...
