Dude, lay off! Almost all of the features in here have been suggested in a well documented database by people who see an idea on another forum, and then they want to see it in phpBB. But many of the features seen in other forums were Modifications on phpBB (2.x) before they were suggested to go on releases over on other BBs. The only reason they can spit out a release with these features built in faster is because they have people paying for their product and thus it is their job! phpBB is volunteer work. There is no copying involved as the code is completely different! There is nothing to admit.

Quit trolling.

Sometimes it's necessary, they might choke on the food you give them. :wink:

i really dont understand some.. first complaining because they want the features, and now theyre here and they start about phpBB ripping things? come on, download a trial version and only check out the BBcode, its the frikin same, go to a IPB board and you'll see it. really if you guys think IPB is better then use it

tbsn; thanks;
I knew that I was just being a wise-guy. I've seen this argument in other forums and know it must be from the same guy or group. Likely employees of IPB. PhpBB is as good and often better than many other boards. I honeslty like them PhpBB, vBulliten, and IPB. I'm running demos of each.

If I have to go through the history of who got inspired by whom and when right before I lock this, I can do that. The other, better option I'm seeing at the moment is that we move along to more useful discussion.
