What I think is interesting, though, is that you downvoted the entire idea rather than supporting the idea with above tweaks. It's been pretty eye-opening to see the attitudes of members of the phpBB community. It explains a lot about the current state of phpBB.
Downvoting the idea is the right of phpBB community. We support for what we think is right for other phpBB users, and we dislike for what we think is not necessary for phpBB community.
As a phpBB user you have the same rights too, hence your attitude doesn't reflect the current state of phpBB. Your attitude only reflects you.
