Re: DB tables too large - host says

Allocate more memory to MySQL. Or prune your posts. I am surprised that the search_* tables are not larger. They usually make up about one half the database size. I'm not sure I can allocate more memory to MySQL - judging from the host's statement, this is not changeable by the user. We are pruning...

Re: DB tables too large - host says

In fact, the host - AT&T - suggests I upgrade to their $349 package. Currently I pay $109 for their VDS plan.
Can a board be so demanding? I have 9 thousand users, but on average only 60 are online concurrently.

MySQL database is 500 MiB. Is it too much?

DB tables too large - host says

Hi, I've received the following notice from my host: There are certain tables that are too large for the memory allotted to your account. Because MySQL is running out of memory when trying to load these tables, we get hanging mysql processes which slow down the entire server. 30M ./newphpbb_privmsgs...

Re: Mod to move inactive moderators to 'elders' group

I understand my request is somewhat ludicrous. Yes, I don't want to assume reponsibility... So looking for ways to automate the process of demoting moderators who don't visit the forum often, who don't edit, move topics etc. I don't know what kind of hook to apply for a mod...

Re: global announcement error

What if I want to show announcements in several forums?

The idea is to show them in chosen forums, not just one. Don't take me literally.

Re: global announcement error

Is it possible to change this default showing?
I'd like to restrict global announcements to one forum, for instance.

Re: Mod to move inactive moderators to 'elders' group

Does it mean nobody has such problems with their moderators and therefore there is no need for this kind of mod?

Mod to move inactive moderators to 'elders' group

Hi, Is there a mod to automatically move moderators who haven't moderated for a set period of time to a specified group? I'm not inclined to do this manually so as not to inadvertently offend my inactive moderators. But when they know the process is automatic, there will be fewer problems for me. Th...

Re: Automatically block Russian posts

Would be fun to have on a Russian-language board ;) I have a huge Russian forum without any special anti-bot gadgets, just the usual Captcha image and several fields to fill in during registration. On a small board I do have a problem with English-speaking spammers, mostly drug sellers and pornograp...

Re: [RC] Quick quote for phpBB3 native quick reply 1.0.2

What I mean is that you can transfer the poster's nick to your reply field without a quote. You just click on the nick under the avatar and it appears in the textarea.

Re: [Release] Aero (phpBB 3.0.8)

Does anyone have a Russian-language button for Quick Reply for Aero (at least blue)?

PS. Very stylish style, btw. Thanks for creating it!

Re: [RC] Quick quote for phpBB3 native quick reply 1.0.2

Does this mod have the option of transferring the nick chosen to a reply field? Or is there a separate mod that does this? It is a nice option when you want to use someone's nick in your text.
