Well, you can suggest that to the author via PM/email if he/she didn't notice your post here :wink:

Interesting MOD. What happens if you click the email button of a particular user..? Looking through the code, it doesn't look like you convert the strings back to the proper email syntax for sending via the board..

Hmm, yes.. It's been ages since I wrote this MOD, so I'll have to look into those issues after I reinstall phpbb ;)

It may take a few days though, work consumes all time :(

Thanks for the feedback/advice guys!

Sorry to say this mod is pointless. Spambots have been taking munged emails with AT and DOT and converting them back for time.

well with at and dot

just use different words!

coz if we all use different words then theres no issue as a spam bot cant convert back all of ours!

just change the data in the $lang entries in language/lang_english/lang_main.php

That's just stupid. What the hecks the point in listing your email if you can't email someone without having to change the AT and the other crud to the right things. IMHO it's more trouble then it's worth.
