Re: Philosophical question to phpBB developers

with all respect, this does not make much sense to me. With all due respect, that seems to be a common issue with you. if you do not want a discussion, do not start one. I did not start a discussion, I posted a topic specifically addressed to the phpBB developers , right in the topic title as obvio...

Re: Requirements page

this aside, i am not challenging the need for a "requirements" page, i just doubt that things like the http server belong there, IOW, i do not think the *current* list at http://wiki.phpbb.com/PhpBB4/Requirements (as it exist at the time of writing this: it's a wiki, so it can change at any minute....

Re: [End user][Admin] Translations / styles

My point of view on this: We want a package management in the ACP through which you can browse, install, uninstall and update packages There needs to be an open source implementation and an interface definition for package repositories By default the phpbb.com repository is used The user should be ...

Re: Wysiwyg TinyMCE implementation

Who makes the determination that phpbb should be, or continue to be "basic"... phpBB, and based on all previous comments/videos/discussion I had seen my interpretation of version 4 was exactly that. The true value in version 4 was not that it would come packed with every feature ever conceived, rat...

Re: headers already sent + other error messages

I have to agree with ToonArmy, I would rather see a robust ACP inline help or mini-FAQ available to the board admin rather than attempt to develop the application with enough of a level of AI to replace the experience and skill of a human being. If there was such a thing as a 1:1 ratio of common err...

Re: MODS -> plugins/add-ons/extensions

Let me redirect eveyone's attention back to the sole reason for this topic , Fwiw, I think the term "MODS" needs to be left behind with the 3.x branch and the terminology used in version 4 should accurately reflect the nature of how the code will work. Based on nadermans's wiki entry which I quoted ...

Re: Requirements page

IMHO, this kind of page is more suitable as a "Tested with" or "Known to work with" than requirements. As a Project Manager myself for a Fortune 500 company here in the United States I have spent almost 10 years in professional software development and not a single (out of dozens) software project ...

Philosophical question to phpBB developers

Since the question I specifically addressed to the development team cannot seem to be respected by those here whom I did not ask for a response from, I will take it up with them privately.
