Where can i read how the phpBB logo was created where it says "phpBB creating communities".
What font, color, etc. are used.
So i can create some just like the original.

using the search, I found out that the font is a commercial font named Cocon.
if you want to buy it you can probably find it using google etc.

as for making a copy of it, that would be against the law to duplicate it since it is a trademark and I believe it is also copyrighted.

There are multiple language pack screenshot using the font/logo like this one: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/translation/french/
Are they breaking the rules?
Maybe add info about it on https://www.phpbb.com/about/logos/

there is a difference between using the company trademarked logo in this situation and what you said above:
So i can create some just like the original.
at the very least you have to ask permission to use the phpbb logo before you do so.

I didn't say where it was going to be used.
