Well, I have over 7000 messages on my board but, from the little I have checked so far, it seems to have been removed. My board is French/Spanish and I assumed the the "Re:" was also used in these two languages.

I was just a little bit worried about the super fast timing of the request on those 7000+ messages!

I checked you board and it seems that the whole post subject field is missing there, not only the "re: ",
If you did also the template change posted here I can see the reason why.
But to be sure that worked (in case) you should back-port your template changes and purge the cache.

The SQL query once ran.. should give you a message into a green box stating that "number of lines (i.e. 5.000) were edited successfully".

No, it works fine for me. I just installed an extension to remove the Re: for future posts and that works fine. Also, checking the past posts (like in this thread: http://www.darloup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=230) all the previous Re: appear to have been deleted.

I thus don't really understand what you mean when you write:

for meIf you did also the template change posted here I can see the reason why.
I didn't do a template change - I just ran a SQL query.
The SQL query once ran.. should give you a message into a green box stating that "number of lines (i.e. 5.000) were edited successfully".
I didn't get this message but, nevertheless, all my previous Re: have disappeared after I ran the query.

Oh well I think I got confused by your style (perhaps I am getting visually impaired), pardonnez-moi.
About the phpmyadmin message box, strange.

Is it still relevant to remove the RE from the database?

The extension works in PHP, no templates required.

Thank you for this. I installed it, but it doesn't seem to work with 3.3.0, is this correct?

This one does work with 3.3.0: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/delre/

It wont remove any existing Re: from existing replies, but if you click on edit for any existing replies, and then save without making any edits, it will remove the Re: from an old post.

It does, just is not installable.
The 3.3 version which includes also a new feature sits in the CDB queue for validation.

No problem Thank you. I am OK with this one as an alternative for now: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/delre/
