Re: Giving Warnings as a moderator (suggestions to make it less personal)

Your board must have a lot of inflammatory topics. No, that's not the case. I think a lot of people that have this problem on a continuing basis have admins that try to please everyone. No, that's not the case. Also a possibility is your moderators are using short/curt responses in these warnings. ...

language inherits system?

Sorry if this has been discussed before, I did a few searches, but couldn't find anything close to what I was aiming for. Here is an idea I'd like to propose. This would benefit admins that like to provide language options for their registered members. I often wonder how difficult it would be if the...

Re: Giving Warnings as a moderator (suggestions to make it less personal)

Although not ideal but what if you set up a "generic" Moderator user (with limited permissions) that all Moderators have access to and is used to issue warnings I did think about this workaround, but I thought it would just be too many steps having to log off to log on to the other account and etc....

Re: Giving Warnings as a moderator (suggestions to make it less personal)

Yes, I see what you mean. Well, if the PM could say, if you wish to dispute this, then it would have a default guide on how to do that--like contact the admin or send a group PM to the moderator team or etc. In one of our forums, our moderators give many soft-warnings. They only give an official war...

Giving Warnings as a moderator (suggestions to make it less personal)

Often, my moderators of my forums often tell me that it seems they usually get the worse of a situation when they need to send a member a WARNING. It then turns into "that moderator has something personally against me" when in truth the moderator was simply enforcing a forum rule, nothing personal. ...

3.0.x Code Changes error

On the Code Changes page for 3.0.x: https://area51.phpbb.com/code-changes/3.0.0/ If I click to view the changes between: 3.0.13-PL1 to 3.0.14 It links to changes to: 3.0.0 to 3.0.14 Link: https://area51.phpbb.com/code-changes/3.0.0/ I think it should be this way: https://area51.phpbb.com/code-change...

Ah! Since I dabble in style making, I was searching all over the place to see what the file looked like. Glad I found this.

Has it been already reported to be removed?

Re: Q&A CAPTCHA: Random questions

did you mean multiple questions at the same time (in registration page)? No. What I want is to have the possibility to create many questions that will be displayed randomly (only one question each time), so that robots will have hard task to register the forum. (but this is already possible as imki...

Re: Bug? with Templates

I don't understand. I thought we covered this already when I first presented this issue on my first post. You see, my site's overall_header.tpl all have the following code: (Because a long time ago, I changed that code in order for my to have a larger banner on my site) subSilver overall_header.tpl ...
