I am curious to see what do people like the most in phpbb 3.1 and why you are looking forward for 3.1 release to upgrade to it.

My choice is obvious - Responsive prosilver

Personally, I like two major things in 3.1: extensions system and easiness of the versions update as its consequence.

Well I did find it slower this morning but it may be due to the amount of people on. It fine now but then I am on my phone with everything turned off (text only mode)

@Jessica, I thought you weren't gonna upgrade to 3.1 due to the number of mods you have. Do you think you might change your mind on that now and go for 3.1?

@Daniel64, yeah the phpbb site had been slow at times. That was probably cuz of huge traffic spike + work going on server. But in my localhost, 3.1 seems faster. Or maybe because the 3.1 is clean with no mods. :D

And yeah... I forgot about notification until cally6008 and Jessica mentioned it. I love that too..and it's very handy.

Extensions - being able to drop a folder in and click "Enable" is pretty awesome. I didn't mind MODding though.

yes that really puts the icing on the cake

when I think of all the manually edited mods like phpBB Gallery that I took hours to perfectly install ..... now as kinerity says .... being able to drop a folder in and click "Enable" is pretty awesome TOO RIGHT

and of course the reverse is true as well - disenable, in the few cases it's no longer what you want,

@Jessica, thank you!! :P now I know

Nope :P Haven't changed my mind. I won't be upgrading my site to 3.1. However I might just change my 3.1 test board into a live site.
