Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

That's correct, but as long as we aren't all moving to IDNs, they'll have to type understand SOME of the roman alphabet. Therefore, I'd be fine with something like http://www.domain.ru/сообщество/ topic /Смешные-темы That being said, it shouldn't be hard at all to implement http://www.domain.ru/сооб...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

What about different languages? That could get extremely messy. Messy how? Do you have the URLs (/topic/) in the board primary language? English? The users language? What happens if the language changes? I still don't understand your point. What is the problem with a URL like http://www.domain.ru/f...

Re: I am changing the post title

There is an unexpected benefit of counters - duplicate content becomes somewhat easier to spot (if same words are used in title)...it doesn't help with intentional abuse, but if as a user I am creating a topic [RFC] Human Readable URLs and I see that the URL created is phpbb.com/community/topic/rfc...

Re: PRUNE USERS - enhancements

What is the purpose of the Prune users tool?

Also, if there is an should unintended benefit of a function, especially a big unintended benefit, then should it continue to be ignore in future development?

Re: Rewriting from ground up

Some excellent points, Oleg! I think I would list my pros and cons as following: Why rewrites seem a good idea As the project matures and starts becoming more and more complex, writing things from scratch becomes more and more enticing compared to finding and fixing bugs, writing a convoluted functi...

The only (small) downside is that special characters (eg. "]") would break it, which is why having the ALT description ins...
