Submitting patches

The Get Involved page says that all patches should be submitted using Git diffs. I understand that using diffs reduce the workload for reviewing the patches. However, it increases the barrier for a large part of the community to provide a patch in the first place. I think there are many people out t...

Re: Users browsing current forum

IIRC, phpBB2 had this by default. Other software like IPB also has this by default (even indicating that who's writing a post or -for admins- who's invisible).

Re: Reputation | may I suggest to make it built-in with phpB

Re: Reconsider template info

As said, I think many people visiting a forum don't care about the number of views a topic has or the number of posts a forum has. The displayed information serves no real purpose. The same goes with the displayed time on the forum (everyone has a clock in the system tray) or the displayed time of t...
