Re: Biggest competition threats to PHPBB forums

To differentiate it from moderator which is often shortened to "mod". I can't remember exactly why modifications was used instead of hack. Probably because of the negative connotations that come with the term hack.

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

His point is still valid. People who have contributed haven't seen their work be released yet. Igor and Oleg are two that I can think of off the top of my head.

Re: modifiable forumtype

Wordpress was a pretty good blog. Then they added custom post types and then they became a pretty good CMS as well as a blog. phpBB doesn't have to be just your basic forum. I can see this feature being used for more than just a few forums. From phpbb.com the knowledge base, customisation db, suppor...

Re: What went wrong

I did not intend to suggest that those who were selected had been contributing for a long time already, in fact many have not. What I was trying to say is that knowing candidates better helps us make better decisions and the more we knew a specific candidate the more likely we probably were to choo...

Re: Multiquote or saved quotes

Multiquote isn't going to work without javascript unless you refresh the page every time someone clicks the quote button. That sounds like a nightmare for user experience. I was thinking of using localStorage or cookies to save the data on the users computer or an AJAX call to save the data to the s...

Re: Responsive layout

You aren't going to come up with a solution that solves all of the problems. There are many devices with various resolutions on slow and fast connections. Many of these devices can switch between portrait and landscape which can change the experience. I don't think you want to give someone using a r...

Re: Biggest competition threats to PHPBB forums

Stack Exchange may not be a threat, but the up and coming Discourse, Vanilla, and countless others certainly are. <flame>The experience of using most forum software makes me want to puke, and then go back and find the poor unfortunate soul that had the idea that forums on the web were somehow bette...

Re: [RFC] WYSIWYG Editor/Rich Text Editor

Why not make it modular so that board owners or users can choose which editor they want to use?

Re: [RFC] Coding guidelines: var keyword in js per line

This tells me that some projects have made the right choice and there is no single style that the entire javascript community is able to agree on. And, that jquery is popular, but I already knew that. Blinded by your own personal opinion that you fail to see the fact that majority of the popular Ja...

Re: [RFC] Coding guidelines: var keyword in js per line

On the other side diffs that are hard to read tend to just go unmerged which probably is also not in phpBB's interest. You keep saying it is hard to read. What is hard to read about it? It takes two seconds to see that a semicolon changed to a comma. How do I apply that to a diff I review on Github...
