I had to stop in and see what all the fuss was about.

I'm not sure why you just disregarded what Highway posted. There are a couple things you need to think about before throwing out what he said.
#1 the number of times you have bumped your topic.
#2 the number of times people have linked you to MODs that do things that everybody else thinks are useful.
#3 the lack of enthusiasm for creating such an easy MOD.
#4 the reason developers get involved with OSS software (like phpBB) in the first place: to use the software themselves or it's their job (they're paid to do it).
#5 if you are not nice, the <1% of developers that may not fall under #4 will now run away because of this point.
Now, let me also point out a few more things from your last reply:
BucsFan wrote:YOU don't like my idea.
- That's irrelevant. Yes, he is pointing out that he doesn’t think it’s a great idea and that others appear to not care much for the idea themselves, you already knew that from your second post:
You are chastising the MOD community for not catering to your wishes, so you attempt to use coercion to get them to do what you want. But what if this MOD is not something they want?

BucsFan wrote:2. You fancy yourself a "talented developer" (way to toot your own horn, btw)
- If you would look around a bit, you would know the kind of Stuff Highway creates - yes, he is a very talented developer, creating entire applications, not just simple MODs for phpBB.

- see point #4 above.
BucsFan wrote:4. You seem to think all other modders do it for selfish reasons as well. You dismiss the fact that a lot of em actually do it because they enjoy it.
- See points #4 and #5 above.
BucsFan wrote:5. You reside on a giant soap box which has brought you to my thread.
- Sounds like you're trying to shove him off the soapbox so you can get on.
You may now have your soapbox back
