Re: Calendar with events.

One would say phpbb is about community and communities often have events and meetings so.. It is useful for many boards but not useful for others. Same as many other phpbb features such as user ranks, attachments, jabber, custom profile fields etc. I really dont like this dividing to "bb features" a...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

No it would not. I am not saying about competition for coders but for designers. It is huge difference. 99% of phpbb styles are made by coders who are not designers and thats why are all these styles so ugly.. Designers should provide only ideas and psds.

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

I would consider announcing some kind of competition for the best phpbb default design. People could submit their ideas and I am sure they would. They did not so far because they think phpbb team does not want to change the prosilver design. Maybe you would find great default design or maybe just so...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

I have a bad feeling phpbb will use prosilver also in 10th version in 2030 :) I just dont understand why nobody wants to remake the design. Thats what users care about. I am not saying phpbb should follow all trends and hypes but there has to be some visual progress in design after 7 years.

Re: [RFC] stop distributing worthless CAPTCHAS in 3.1

That might be good idea but.. phpBB is widely used. All bots would be updated to break this captcha easily. They would read the instruction and they would know what letters to choose. The problem is that there would be limited amount of colors / shapes so it would be easy to learn the bot to underst...

Re: First post on top.

There is a simple MOD for 3.0 which does this. It is very useful on some forums, but I dont think it would be widely used.

Re: [RFC] stop distributing worthless CAPTCHAS in 3.1

It does not matter who ate the Red. I dont understand it anymore, it was some time ago. Of course, the Q is right, but I forgot it. Maybe it was Who did the wolf ate? It does not matter, my point is to use QaA as default captcha and use good Q.

Re: [RFC] stop distributing worthless CAPTCHAS in 3.1

leschek, most difficult picture captcha is also able to broke and it is very annoying for people. Even I with good sight am not able to read many captchas. And reCaptcha is broken, so why should we keep it? I had reCaptcha on 2 my boards and I had 100 bots per day. Totally useless. Mess, the Q was i...

Re: [RFC] stop distributing worthless CAPTCHAS in 3.1

Agree, those random Q can be broken. Admin should find out Q related to his forum. For example I was working on forum for citizens of one British town and I proposed to use the questions like "In what district is our town" and "What is the full name of our town". They have no spam now. Or I have bee...

Re: [RFC] stop distributing worthless CAPTCHAS in 3.1

Not so good working captcha = broken captcha = no problem for bots but annoying for real users. So yea, I would rather have no captcha then bad captcha. Moreover, I dont see a problem in setting the Q&A in installation process.
