Re: [RFC|Accepted] Soft Delete

Regarding soft delete + post revision interaction: My opinion is that the two are completely separate. A soft delete is not a revision. If a post is soft deleted, then all revisions are processed in the same way as the current post version. That is, if the soft delete becomes a hard-delete at some p...

You seem... emphatic. :) Can you provide reasons why you feel so strongly? Frankly I don't see that it's a big deal. There should not be that much code involved, and it would be easy to provide an admin on/off switch, perhaps even by forum.

Re: One click ban & auto-delete of all posts

For what it's worth, I have a feature on my board that does allow moderators to do this. When an obvious spammer hits the board, there is a two-click operation that will deactivate the spammer account, invalidate the activation key so they can't request reactivation, deletes all sessions from the se...

Re: Hide foe topics

Actually, I think it makes sense. I've never used the "friend" or "foe" feature (even on phpbb.com) but frankly I would have assumed that it already worked this way. If I take the trouble to say I don't want to see activity by someone (a foe) I would assume that's all activity.

Re: Make phpBB faster/liter by replacing dynamic strings with static one

Testing for performance really needs to be done on an isolated system. When I was testing template changes (not what you're suggesting, something else) I had a server set up at my house that I used so that I knew I was the only one putting a load on the box. :) Anything else is probably hit and miss...

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

Was anyone ever able to scan the phpbb.com database and get a percentage of how many posts had been edited?

Re: Make phpBB faster/liter by replacing dynamic strings with static one

I find it hard to believe that a few variable versus static replacements dropped cpu utilization by nearly a third. :-?

Re: [RFC] Improved Subscription Options

...the only difference would be that a subscription method option would be added and, when subscribing to a topic, the user would have the option of choosing which method to subscribe by (no notification, email, jabber, or other methods of contacting users that phpBB supports or adds support for). ...

Re: Moderation Queue adjustments

The admin probably wants to ban the user and not delete. If the user is deleted then the bot may come back with the same username. After you get thousands of banned usernames, you get get somewhere... probably.... Bots don't - at least in my experience - tend to reuse names. I have never bothered t...
