Sometimes I want to write some words about phpbb2 but I'm little afraid not only because english wasn't my mother tong and I still had had problems with some words, and nouns also. But may be I'm one of the "dinosaurs" who's still using phbpp2 and I have in my opinion at least four good reasons to not "evolute" to phpbb3. Anyway I agree that's inevitable. If I can postpone that as far as possible I'll be fine. I'm still using phpbb3 in localhost for learning purposes.
1) I can't understand permissions in phpbb3. Even I can set it correct (I hope so). So I can do that but I can't understand all the levels and why exists "yes" "no" "never"
2) Mods in phpbb2 are easy to install and we can found a lot of that really works. Mods "validated" in phbpp3 looks like a puzzle game. I made a test, send ten mods to friends (at least nine friends with a good acknowledgement about php) and ask them to install in phpbb3. Only one could do that and he's a PHD in programming. I ask for some help but he's have a lot things to do and.........nevermind.
3) I have a Mod in phpbb2 than can made a real log from everything was done in my board such as a deep breath from the user
. Phpbb3 log not a real log (or I don't know how to use it).
4) I have my phpbb2 board since second release and until today I haven't any security or other problems related to that. And I have a trash bin for admin only
I can not get rid of that false sense of changing the phpbb2 to phpbb3, I actually moving from Windows XP to Windows Vista, even with a wrong impression, I'd rather wait for Windows 7 "phpbb 3.0.6"
Or may be I'm really a dinosaur because I'm using winxp and phpbb2
