To all you guys - Karl - Acyd - everyone who has put up with my BS over the past few weeks, I felt it was time to say a big thank you to all of you for having suceeded in creating the best forum software out there, hands down. Prior to 3.0 I was actually entertaining the idea of going with vBulletin - not because 2.0 PHPBB sucked, but because users were itching for a change, and 2.0 was feeling more and more limited in functionality compared to the other software packages out there.
With the release of 3.0 I have to say, and I mean this, that you guys have created the best forum software anywhere on the internet, and congratulations and thanks is long overdue. Especially with subsilver2 style installed and active, not only is the forum the most attractive aesthetically, but phpBB's functionality is also utterly mind blowing on every level. I have had 3.0 running for a few weeks now and I haven't even had a chance to begin to make a dent in learning all the new features in the Admin Control Panel yet.
You guys put up with a lot of irritating crap from all of us, and we in turn put up with some impatience from you guys, but in the end, I hope our input (whining, moaning, complaining, b*tching, etc) is helpful, and .... without your assistance we'd be dead in the water, so thank you for everything. I am not kissing butt cheeks when I say all of this. Everyone I work with is blown away by 3.0. My moderators have raved about the functionality of the ACP, and our users have raved about the features, and bug fixes, and visual presentation. Its nearly impossible to please everyone, but when 10,000 users on my site have nothing bad to say about it, you've hit a home run.
We are all still completely terrified to mess with the permissions functionality, simply because something breaks every time we start poking around in there, but that is just a testament to how incredibly flexible and elaborate and feature-rich this new software is. Once the documentation has been perfected and completed, you guys will have completed something amazing.
Thank you again.
