Re: Event Sourcing and CQRS

I appreciate that the cost of storage is cheap these days but when considering phpBB many (the majority?) of users are on [cheap] shared hosting where they are limited to the amount of storage that they have and some hosts are notorious in trying to force you to upgrade your hosting package when you...

Re: Event Sourcing and CQRS

I think I follow in principle what this is about but the first thing that comes into my mind is that if you are storing all events that occur on a phpBB board in the database will this not result in a massive data storage problem, possibly beyond the resources for many boards? Or maybe I do not full...

How about keeping the 30 character limit for the core, but allowing 63 bytes for the extensions?
That would imply that anyone using Oracle would not be installing extensions (may possibly be true, but cannot be guaranteed)

Re: [GSoC] Database Explorer within ACP

Good idea for a development tool but on a live board I cannot remember when I last accessed the database - certainly no more than once in the last year, if that.

This would be good as an extension/add-on, but is not, in my opinion, something that should be in the core.
