Re: Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

Whilst all of this "fancy" scrolling is admirable from a technical perspective, and possibly a challenge in development terms, I think that we are loosing sight at who all of this is aimed at - the end user, not developers, not extension/style creators, not board owners but the end user.

Re: library/API

I would suggest that you use the correct terminology as I believe that you are referring to forum not a board.

Board = a number of fora
Forum = a number of topics
Topic = a number of posts

Re: Control panel module system

just exspect all to be re-written for 4.0 Just great - let's upset all extension developers and all style developers just because somebody want to change something.

Re: Control panel module system

Whilst I would not discount any of the above as being potential problems, and I would agree that there are some areas that need blocking, I would ask is this actually a problem in the real world. By that I mean is there any data on users actually having these problems as I cannot recall any support ...

Re: Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

In my opinion both pagination and "Load more" have their place and it is also dependant on where you are on the board and your role on the board. "Load more" for a topic to display posts is, in most cases, probably OK as generally, in my experience, you only go back/forward one or two pages - I am s...

Re: [PHPBB3-15928] Remove support for downloading backups

There already is a "Can backup/restore database" Admin permission but that no affect if the user is a Founder - and that is what this change is aimed at preventing.

I would prefer a change where there can only be one Founder as that would get around all of these types of problems.
