The teams have stated before that they made some very minor changes, but overall, there are no extensions or MODs used.

Overall we have a few extensions installed:

Then we also have a few other changes to the code not in the form of extensions:
  • The style (Prosilver SE is based on it)
  • Canned messages (for common support queries e.g. walking someone through the steps for a board update)
  • Some special anti-spam stuff
  • The little ads in the top right hand corner as you view some topics/forums
  • Replace [EVENT] in topic titles with an image
  • Changes for our profiler (Tideways)
  • We have some special things that activate on the 1st April
  • Some special website integration magic
  • We remove a lot of ACP functionality we don't need for security redundancy (database utils, template editor etc.)
  • Some custom logic for mail queue handling (It's adapted for our specific server environment so not applicable to most phpBB installations)

We changed our position on this about a year ago as our belief is that, with the introduction of extensions, one of the main things we believe is phpBB core should be lightweight, then individual boards can add customisations that suit their use-case. One of the reasons we used to keep phpbb.com vanilla was also so it could be used as a demo of phpBB however we now have the demo board which we recommend people to use to try out phpBB instead of the forums. However, this does not mean tomorrow we are going to install 30 extensions. ;)

I hope that answers your question. :)

Since phpBB refers to admins and moderators as the "Team" this extension gives the admin tools to help keep an eye on the activities of those team members and their accounts. It's basically to help a watchful admin keep an eye out for any possible security breaches where somebody hijacks a Team member's account and then tries to mess with the forum.

We know what we're doing. :P

We decided to not do stable releases of team security as it is quite niche and then we don't need to provide support for it, put it on the CDB etc. but people if they wish are still welcome to get it from github.

Sure: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2208516&#p13443461

Those instructions might be slightly off as they are designed for 3.0 but the differences shouldn't be too great. :)
