Re: Bug is less,

This is a better one, It says what bugs are open regardless of whether they have been reviewed or not.

Re: Better Spambot Protection in phpBB3?

I am all for increasing the effectiveness of spam bots protection. I run a site that seems to have at least one spam account get through despite the fact that I am running multiple counter measures. These ideas are off the cuff but may inspire some ideas. Audio verification: same idea as picture ver...

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

I guess the major difference would be with highways version its on a post by post basis, but the other way, it would be used on a global basis. So yeah they could be the same, but if anything at best his version would be a sub set of the larger karma system. The only reason at this juncture that I t...

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

@Highway of Life
I would think of a better term for your system, because by definition it has nothing to do with Karma. It would be more like a site wide Digg (See http://digg.com/) I think that it is important to separate the two ideas fundamentally in as to avoid confusion and/or flame waring.

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

I think both your logics are both inherently flawed. Any distinction between the relevance of a post will be looked upon in a positive or negative light regardless of a number or verbiage associated with it. The simplistic way of saying “there are no negatives” is in the same line of thought as “we ...

All systems can be abused, should it stop people from making them?
Why do you care what people do with their time?
If you don't like it, you don't have to use it.

Re: New Karma System (Theory)

You would have to read the thread from the beginning to find the intricatenesses of the suggested systems. My idea was to have weighted threads that could be used to establish a baseline for P2P votes. If you consistently rated someone 5 stars over time your 5 stars for that persons post would be on...

Re: So am I right ? there is no portal or cms system coming?

It has been stated many times that the phpBB group for the foreseeable future will not create a web portal or CMS for phpBB. However I would be nice for them to official validate and or back a few of them. There validation could be as simple as NO Modifications to the existing phpBB database and lim...
