The designers of phpBB do not get as much "thank you's" as they deserve.
I cannot put in words on an expression-less message board application how truly thankful I am for phpBB and all of the help they provide. Overall, phpBB is one of the leading message board systems out there. It's very user-friendly, it has a very easy-to-edit interface, and it's just got unlimited possibilities.
Installing and running phpBB makes eating cereal look difficult. It's so simple, whenever there's an error, the thing practically fixes itself.
In addition, the support team here is very active and so very helpful. I wish that they had the time to read everything everyone has good to say, instead of getting bug reports and errors.
People are quite impatient sometimes. They would come on here with their first post, asking for help, and if the support team doesn't help them in the way that they wanted to he helped, then automatically the Support Team here are very unhelpful and useless. Although, it seems to be a different story with me. 97 - 99% of the time, the support team helps me fix a problem, and they treat me like I'm the only member of the site.
Running a well-maintained website with a healthy amount of people on it is a full-time-job. I get on my site after just an hour, and I have over 85 new posts to read- and I have to read them to make sure no one is breaking the site rules. Here, it's different. In an hour on average, I'd guess just near 1,250+ new posts arrive. If not, I will be damned.
I currently only have 140 people on my site, and it's quite tough, I must admit. But here, with 140990 members at this time? It's a miracle the people that are on the support team/mod here even have lives. Do you people actually go out to restaurants, etc? And as I've said before, it's a full time job.
In addition to this full time job, the support team and moderators volunteer here and help all the time. They don't even get paid. How do you do it?
Many people also presume that when they come on this site and ask for support, that the support team HAS TO answer their question immediately-with no hesitation. In addition to that, they assume that they know the exact answer. These guys are good, but they're only human. As said before, I get what I want from you guys 97 - 99% of the time.
And finally, I could not have created such a brilliant and beautiful website without the help and support I've recieved here. At least to me, I have a good website, but to everyone else it might be different.
Deepest thank you's to all of the support team, moderators, administrators, and anyone else that works here. I really appreciate all of your work and effort. Stand up and take a bow!
