It might just be me but since the server maintenance today the board seems a touch quicker. A PHP version upgrade perhaps?
Yep, we upgraded from php5 to php7 (And a new VM, thats why it took a bit of time)
The phpBB logo has also changed, does that indicate the board software was also updated to phpBB 3.3.x?

style_version = 3.2.9
phpbb_version = 3.2.9
but that doesn't necessarily imply that the board version is 3.2.9

style_version = 4.0.0-a1-dev
phpbb_version = 4.0.0-a1-dev
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

That has been changed already since the 3.3 release :). We are still running 3.2, but we will upgrade to 3.3 soon. Just needed to get this part done first.

I understood it differently. phpBB 3.3 wouldn't run on PHP 5.x. Now that server is running PHP 7.x, phpBB 3.3 is possible and that's when I also noticed the logo change, hence the question.

Nha, in an ideal world we would have upgraded www.phpbb.com first (Which we have done in the past :)), but the proces of moving over took lots longer as expected. I think we have been working on it for over 1.5 year on actually moving it (Starting from preperation till getting everything actually working :)).

We didn't want to do multiple updates at the same moment, so thats why we waited with the 3.3 upgrade :).

Would the powers that be consider installing the phpBB • Individual posts per page extension on phpbb.com? There are many topics, such as this one, that stretch on for many pages at the current limit of 15 posts/page. For users on faster internet connections, I cannot see a reason they wouldn't benefit from showing more posts/page.
On another 'hot topic' ;) there was mention of the topic with the most number of pages which triggered me to remember this request.

Is this the proper place to request the addition/change or should a feature request be opened in the tracker?

This or the website tracker would be the proper place. But in general we prefer not to install extensions on www.phpbb.com to keep it as close to phpBB itself as possible. In this specific case we probarbly won't install it as it hasn't been updated in a while.

Yeah 1475 pages. I'm not sure I want to have that loaded on 1 page with 22125+ posts :P (makes it kind of difficult to remember exactly where you were when having log out ;) )

You should make an extension request.

Is it possible to have a cache for the draft reply before submit?
Sometimes I just accidentally hit the close button, and I had to enter whatever I wrote just now again...
In many cases the browser's Back button can recover your draft.

Yup, and many browsers have a "Closed tabs" or "Closed windows" feature as well which will (try to) recover what you already wrote.

We won't be implementing anything custom like that on the phpBB.com website, which this topic is for, as we try to keep this as close to the core phpBB product as we can while still serving our needs. Feel free to make a feature or extension request though in the other areas.

I don't know if this is a big problem, but I do notice that some Newly Registered Users fill out their profiles with commercial information that has nothing to do with phpbb, nor do their sites have phpbb forums or anything phpbb related. It seems to me like some are trying to turn their profiles on this site into advertisements without having to post anything.
