but when I read the content, it look like he want to suggest improvements to make the phpbb easier for more people.
it is actually a good ideas, so user can easier to add mod, and have a powerfull phpbb, as they wants it. without need to change many code.
but if it is already think and will be better in phpbb3, I hope it is true. and more people will use phpbb and also the mod, and it is easier to use.
I am not a fan of systems that require code hacking in order to achieve a result.
I totally Agree, the guys suggesting improvements that LACK in the current software.
Server Load and all that ? well.... you have to give out something in exchange for something else most of the times..
what happens is we update our boards then comes a update to your phpbb software that we go to update and we are stuck with errors and hours of wasted time, All the time installing and fixing could have been avoided by a simple Plug in system.. Well as some one said
this is phpbb, if you want a plugin system board(which is a million times better idea anyway) try a different board software... Which I think many of us are most likely to do, specially after most of you being a bunch of stuck crowd ....
Modules and plug-ins .. is a better system than modifying existing code, user friendly and time saving..this is not even an argument, this is a fact. and if you disagree then there's no point to even discuss about it..
