Maybe bad timing, but not a bad idea.

I think that he's agreeing that it should be considered later in time. :D

oh, okay thanks for clarifying what psoTFX said. :)

I was not really thinking of doing anything right now anyway---I was more throwing out a suggestion. Perhaps, though, when you deveolpers think the time is appropriate, we could start a "design signature/email logo for phpbb 2.2" contest in the off topic section on the main forums.

I'm doing more brainstorming than I'm doing anything else, really. :)

At least they should be able to since it's been mentioned numerous times on the main site. You'd have to be crazy to start developing something that's dependent on phpBB without reading the Latest News or Announcements sections on the main site at the very least.
Yeah, well, thats me. At about the time that it all happened not much was said there, and it was early enough that I thought I was safe, but then I wasn't, and now that I think of it, I could have finished with a year left, and then worked on converting it. Tough decisions, things don't always work out...
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, margarita in one hand - chocolate in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO! - What a Ride!"

If you are site admin looking for a forum they will search the web and find this fine free forum softver.... No spreadfirefox is a mutch better idea bucurse evryone needs the best browser....

But maybe somthing like spredphpBB but than you will have to advertice on webprograming sites.. u know visting like I don't know what normal people do on the web.... But will it realy interset them tha a new php*what* is realised... Forum sofwere I don't understand what does it do????? whats it good for?
Get Firefox and install the BBcode extension; then you are a real forum power user!

It isn't? I've thought about it, and it is. Particularly since the Webbie Awards nominated us for an award last year ... If it wasn't interesting to the public then, why would it be now? No, it is, phpBB has some very nice technologies that you didn't see in other bulletin board software until after phpBB 2 was released.

Best is relative ... What may be best for you may not be best for someone else. Businesses generally prefer for example IE because it is there already and they know it. But now I am getting offtopic.

Discussion, like we are doing now. It provides a place for your website visitors to hang out. Some places use it as a support area, like http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB." target="_blank Other places modify it and use it for other things. Bulletin board software in general: Think about what bulletin board means. What is the purpose of the old corkboard anyway? Now you begin to realize the purpose for bulletin board software packages.
