Re: Not Using phpBB

I tested out smf, vb, and IPB along with being a phpBB user. I must say if you see that price is not an option, go for IPB. Smf is free but not open source. Though the core software is very good, there are not even good mods for it. Maybe because it is free, but not open source that is not attracti...

Re: Olympus vs. the rest

Twistedweather, you often come across as argumentative and abrasive whenever I've seen you post. SHS' is usually pretty direct and to the point. However, I can recall very few situations in which I've read anything by the phpbb team where I wouldn't have been at least as abrupt with people. Especia...

Re: Captchas and Human Readability

OK. This needs to be addressed, since i've gotten a lot of negative feedback on the captchas. I'd like to start making the captchas a little more human readable. If you come across a generated captcha image that you deem as unreadable, please identify it , save it and post it for me, along with a d...

Re: Olympus vs. the rest

There are a gross number of things that you still don't seem to "get", so I'll entrtain myself in replying here too... I believe a few here on the development team etc could take a few lesson's in patience and friendliness from the guy's over at SMF. May I remind you that SMF is a commercial outfit...

Re: So, the last surprise of Olympus is ...

Not because they necessarily object to said mimicry (I have no idea what they think about it)… At that time the "deal" theFinn put in place, as I recall it, was that he was happy to give his blessing to people who wanted to port subSilver to other forum products, but he asked that everybody wait un...

Re: Olympus vs. the rest

you might want to use some interpunction and break down your lines a bit :wink: also phpBB creates the core, in what seems in their eyes good. they want a fast, stable forum package, not bloated with to many features. the mod community provides features. feedback? security tracker/bug tracker? and ...

Re: Why is Olympus called Olympus?

Anybody remember? The phpBB.com Announcements forum perhaps ? :roll: then change the name to "Tourmalet"/"Ventoux" (cycling) or "Everest" (climbing). Olympus is WAY too easy to be given name to this process ;). Earthlings and their pathetic terrestial molehills. :roll: OlympMons-v-Everest-TSmith-uw...

Re: Olympus vs. the rest

I have had a SMF and IPB up and running for month's now (IPB longer ) and ofcourse running the new phpbb3 beta. Have used the old phpbb2 as well. I have never used/setup vB, I have ran IPB, but as stated they don't really compare. With the new beta out i think they do as far as user/admin features g...
