It might david... For all you know our good freind CreatixEA might be on the edge... He might be about to do... Something... And maybe, just maybe knowing what the milestones are would give him a reason... Not to do something...

All sarcasm aside... The milestones are crazy and I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them... I don't think they really matter, all that matters is that we will all one day have phpBB3... One day...

Wow I'm making sense today...

Geez...you guys are mean. 8O :P


Here is a good thread that I found explaining the milestones and what they stand for: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=20989&hilit=milestone

In fact, I logged on today just to search for that thread and find out myself. :)

If the thread is confusing, in a nutshell:

1.) We are at milestone3

2.) The milestone system was ditched at milestone 2 and is now ONLY used for developmental purposes so the developers can somehow organize stuff around that. To people like you and me, the milestones mean absolutely nothing. 8)

Nah don't worry, I was kinda kidding. I have been reading this forum since late 2004 and didn't decide to become a member until recently. It is a wonder this place hasn't imploded on itself. Quite a bit of repetitive questions/attitudes...and tons of people who can't take it and get all nasty. Not a good combination.

BTW, thanks. I had just finished researching this topic and found the answer, so I figured, might as well spread the joy. :D

Also, good advice to anyone, try the search function. What I did to find that thread was I typed in "milestone" and display only threads that have it in their title. I agree, it is a bit difficult to weed out informative threads from bad ones, but there is a good chance you will find the information you are looking for, and if all else fails, ask. :) No question asked is too stupid.....kinda...

Implode...explode...some other nasty thing happening...you know. ;) Of course metaphorically speaking in terms of the membership.


13 months, not bad. That may even be a bit longer than I have. I come and go though. Up until now I probably only browsed this place on average, once or twice a month. I figured, what the heck..it goes both ways, might as well participate a little. :mrgreen:

EDIT: When I click on emoticons it doubles it. I guess they want TWICE the emotional powwa MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAAHAHAHAHH ok im done...
