guess what guys, it was the same process in phpbb2 and always has been as far as I know.
and every phpbb board has this feature.
I really don't get why this is such a big deal. If it was such a big deal to very many people, don't you think it would come up around here more often? Dont' you think it might have been changed a long time ago?
I would imagine that it is possible to change, just like anything else. So, the place to request a MOD is in the MOD forum here. Maybe you can find someone willing to write up a MOD for you to change this behaviour.
I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
