I want to apologize up front if I am off base here. This is just something I noticed. Basically, on my website I am fighting to find solutions to tie phpbb with a blogging software. In my case I have been trying to integrate wordpress with phpbb. I do have WPU installed, but the author abandoned it without notice. So, there have been numerous attempts and some of them worked and some of them didn't. Today, there is still not one ultimate plugin that has stood the test of time.
Why the heck am I bringing this up? Well the post on the main page mentions wordpress directly, but my basic point is that wordpress saw the need for the blog and forum combination. In fact, some forum software pride themselves in terms of compatibility (even to the length of facebook and guest commenting by default). Furthermore, wordpress has also took it upon themselves to take bbpress and tie it into their own software (IMO bbpress is still a lackluster experience). So, IMO, this is something that is missing from phpbb: The forum blog combination.
The only other thing I would suggest would be making plugins/ mods easier to install. From a user perspective ease of use is key and wordpress manages its plugin installs in an easy to use and intuitive manner. This would be something I would like to see with phpbb instead of adding the code changes line by line. I think there is some mod x plugin, but IMO I don't think phpbb is on the same level as ease of use as wordpress. In addition, you can easily search for plugins within one websites control panel, which is also a nice touch. Again, feel free to correct me on this one. I am just stating my opinion and I don't mean to offend any one or anything like that.
With that said, the hosting plan seems interesting. Again, some people may want more of a full page with a blogging experience as well for the price, but with that all aside, one area of concern is the number of concurrent users online on average. I don't know a lot about it, but the numbers seem limiting especially as the plan prices increase. Another area is of course the number of extensions supported $10 a month for 3 extensions? I know they install a few mods by default, but phpbb is kind of built around mods in some cases no? Are users still able to install their own mods? This is just some of the stuff to me that is a bit of concern as an avid phpbb user.

I just wanted to add that I did like this line. If I were a potential customer it sounds like it would be good to do business with you guys.
