Re: phpBB4 im sick of waiting!

That's better. You should have just said that in the first place. Accuracy is crucial, lest we confuse people.

Re: phpBB4 im sick of waiting!

No, not true. phpBB 4, like all previous versions of the software (9, 8, 7, etc.), is platform-independent. :x

Re: Updating from RC1 to RC3

I'm disappointed that this basic information isn't contained in a readme within the download or on the main page. An RC phase helps shake out unintended/unforeseen problems like this. If I understand correctly, beginning with RC4, the automatic updater will now allow "back" updates, so long as they...

Re: phpBB4 im sick of waiting!

According to the xuniL kernel version numbering scheme, phpBB 4 should already have been released. But I can't find it on the downloads page. A SourceForge problem :?:

Re: Suspecting GOLD Very Soon...

If I understood correctly, the automatic updater was “broken” and has been fixed, so that in the future it will be possible to use prior updates in a step-by-step fashion (e.g., RC1 to RC2, RC2 to RC3, RC3 to RC4).

Re: All times are UTC ...

I could still send you a paper mail, go to work on foot, get the news from some herald etc... ;) Sure. You can also offload all user responsibility onto software developers, encourage ignorance rather than the pursuit of even basic knowledge (e.g., terms like UTC) by making software developers do a...

Re: All times are UTC ...

Granted that it would be nice if the software handled DST for us lame, lazy users, why should the admin care if the user's time is displayed wrong? If people don't have the time of day to enter their UCP twice a year, why should I care? I still have to change both my watches manually, and every cloc...

Re: the phpbb 3 Text Editor !!

A WYSIWYG editor was among the phpBB community coding projects, if I recall correctly, so I don't think there's any strong opposition to the idea among the teams. I've gotten the impression that most of the projects were unproductive.

Re: Why enter e-mail twice?

And I'm not sure what IPB has to do with e-mail address confirmation, which is a widely used procedure throughout the Internet. Maybe we're missing something?
