Re: Support Multi-Word Passwords

Well, the basic idea behind pass phrases are that they're just as hard to crack via brute force, but much easier to remember for people. Remembering "$php33foru*mp@a$$" is much harder than " phpbb forum awesome blossom ". But, as long as the passphrase role allows it, you can enter it into one fiel...

Re: Support Multi-Word Passwords

I think, from a user perspective, it should be clear where each word goes, what sections is which, etc. From a users perspective (mine, not yours ;) ), it makes it more complicated - all UIs i know tell me to enter my username (one entry-field) and a self-choosen passphrase (another entry-field) an...

Re: IP ban guests?

What do you mean? Banning by IP is currently build in - and a "guest" is every user not logged in.

Re: Topic disapproval leaves no traces

Disapproving is logged, but currently you can never find the original post (or even the topic, if it is the first post in the topic ) because the post and also the topic (only on first post) will be hard deleted from the database. In the moderators log, you can give a reason for disapproval, and you...

Re: Topic disapproval leaves no traces

Maybe the "softdelete" feature for posts can be used for this, so the posts stay in the database, but invisible to the public.
For that, a "softdeleted" value on topic-table (topic_approved = -1) in addition to the discussed value in posts-table can be used for dis-approved topics

IP addresses change very often, and what if someone is connected to a network (workplace/internet-cafe)? OK, your talking about a human spammer, i thought about spam-bots who are very often using the same IP for a longer period. So also add a changing captcha they have to fill in, and a lot requier...

Maybe a method can be implemented to block sending a second request for a time (eg. 1 day - set in config-table) after sending a request, depending on the IP-Adress for guest or userid (for registered users).

Re: [RFC|Merged] Removal of imagesets

What about New template variables Use much less css instead duplicated code for different languages :roll: the only thing that is duplicated for different languages are the language strings themselves :?
