Nobody can speak for everybody else unless they have a mandate to do so so I can only assume you mean me and everybody else has to agree.
If you really want this change you can either post an RFC on Area51 or request an extension, it's that simple.
Tell this to the countless forums on the internet that have seen their users go over to their Facebook pages for discussion.
Same here. I don't understand why it can't be set by the admin when they set up the forum. A tickbox for 'Facebook mode' is all we want so we don't have to hack about with the code to make it do what we want.peopleinside wrote: ↑Mon Jun 19, 2017 8:38 pmI agree, feel a bad decision of phpbb to turn off notification by default... but I had already participated in this, seems phpbb not want hear about that so I stopped to ask and to discuss this.
As I told I believe the right way is to let the user decide when he register or turn on by default all notification and make easy to deactivate.
