Well, its time to get the fun back into this place. Cant we all wait happily while the devs do their work?
Instead of flaming hate and fighting everywhere, just let it all out (in very nice words) and tell us what you think of the board and the devs but dont ruin it. Give your psychological profile of the devs and the product.
I go first!
phpBB - a great piece of software. I love it, respect it, appreciate it and in my opinion a successful target in which to follow a good well run/maintained project. I now use this as the basis for all my work both in terms of structure and in terms of following the same coding standards etc.
psoTFX - A real movie character - nobody knows whether they love him or hate him? I for one didnt know having run in to him and finding it an unplesant experience. He's got all traits from the stubborn, never willing admin to the bad man you see in movies with good lines. But you cant doubt his talent and contribution to this project. He single handedly coded two-thirds of what you see before you. Just appreciate his patience of having to put up with all kinds of people trying to get at him and his phpBB baby. One thing is for sure, its great to see him back to his old self posting everywhere and answering us all. A great man indeed, here is arguably the best line I have seen from him which highly expresses his character and personality
Acyd Burn - Not as tough as psoTFX, more laid back and im not sure if its only me, but he's very friendly (dont be scared of his name ). Had the pleasure of getting some response from him - precise and to the point. Unlike psoTFX, Acyd likes to be behind the scenes where he enjoys peace and quiet? Having read his blog I first felt bad reading his views on how phpBB fits into his busy working life. But he enjoys coding and I hope we all make him proud and keep making phpBB fun for him.psoTFX wrote: And guess what, here comes the locky locky.
BartVB - Havent come accross him on the board much. Bart, come on make yourself known, stop hiding 8)
Moderators - They're doing a great job. Having had a few topics locked I hope they dont decide to lock this one too. One thing is for sure, they wield big sticks and wip everyone into shape. If I had any power i'd like to delete every post they make Graham and SamG you guys are great - keep doing what you do best.
There are a whole lot of others that need psychological profiling Please lets keep this fun, use it to take out your stress and anger but dont ruin in. Let us all laugh and wait quietly with a smile on out face.
