Then you should be in school instead of on the interweb.

I didn't realise it was the April Fool thing today. I'm glad because I almost had a scare for a moment.

There shouldn't be "jokes" like this. Could spoil the reputation of phpbb if not careful.

There's a couple of other subtleties. See if you can find them all :geek:
Apply to become a Jr. Extension Validator
My extensions | In need of phpBB services? | Was I helpful today?
No unsolicited PMs unless you're planning on asking for paid help.

First, Microsoft never "approaches", they crawl :D
Second, "automatically convert phpBB3 boards" by hosts. Ah, an Auto-Auto-MOD :roll:
Third, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dewey,_Cheatem_&_Howe
Fourth, mentioned "Regulatory Code 16.8.16.b.b"
and fifth, "a thorough approval process" - Sorry guys, but everything can happen except this :lol:

These styles and modifications will be sent through a thorough approval process, and we anticipate their availability in the ASPbb store approximately six months after submission.
This is a huge step forward. I'm extremely glad to hear the validation time is finally being improved through the financial support you are receiving. It's about time! :)
