if you look at the Ajax chat mod
that my friend Handyman' developed at the dawn of 3.0 you'll see his mini profile there
he has still got star trek guide,com as his www
That Ajax chat was the first mini chat for 3.0 that I know of, I used it on all my 3.0 forums in 2008 and it worked well before Richie McGirr brought out a superior version
A lot of our really valued and skilled developers have made their own forums and offered support there for amazing mods like the one I quoted above
sadly I know that quite a few of these developer forums have fallen by the way side as the developers have maybe lost interest in phpBB?
it's a shame - 2007/8 was perhaps a huge peak time for phpBB and developers helping the phpBB cause - they deserved our support and acknowledgement then - maybe we could have done more
