Re: A hint to show the closeness of releasing phpBB3!

Yeah, i can't seem them abandoning updates on 2.x for awhile. So many people have heavily-modded forums and won't (like me) be ready to upgrade to Olympus until the MODs are updated to become compatible.

Re: Warning users, does it have any sense ?

I find the whole "warning" system dubious at best. What point is there in banning a member when that person can simply create a new account? Worse, by banning someone you throw down a potential challenge of who can outlast whom in a war of mischievous posts and false accounts. Far better in most cas...

Re: Why does phpBB use a posting confirmation page?

I would prefer an automatic redirect back to the post as well over the present "which way now?" screen.

However, I did install the Redirect_User_Fix on my PHPBB 2.0x board and it broke the Attachment Mod. Not sure why exactly...

Users browsing this forum

What is the design decision behind only displaying the users currently browsing a particular forum, but showing all the online users on the main index? Wouldn't it make more sense to have all online users displayed in all areas of PHPBB just in case a friend signs in or simply to maintain continuity...

Re: Security: "The Sleeper Awakes!"

KittenAuth is a great idea! I motion we get this running for all PHPBB boards - current or in development - via modification, patch, or default script! ;)

Re: Security: "The Sleeper Awakes!"

Ouf of curiosity, what are your thoughts on the idea (as stated in another forum) of having each forum define a personal security question (and answer) in the phpbb configuration file for new registrations? Since each server question would be completely different, would that serve as an entropic bar...

Security: "The Sleeper Awakes!"

I heard the default PHPBB2 Visual Confirmation code has been cracked and (probably old news, but...) I've noticed a surge of probable bot registrations the last few couple weeks, on my forum with no posts by these suspicious accounts. My concern: could these (potential) sleeper accounts be lying dor...
