Very soon, in fact. I'll just port the phpBB codebase, add one feature, and redistribute it. :P ;) :twisted:

It will be under the name, "PhopBamb", which is under the name "phpBB". If you care to disagree, the name is phpbb. Take out the o, a, and the m, you get phpBB. It is the same name.

Now then, you realize that once i release this to the public, they will be VERY mad at you. Imagine - all the features planned with PHPBB3.0, right. now. Face it, the people won't wait to use your software. A very small user fan base will, but most will want an updated phpBB. NOW. And I'm just giving this to them.

Being under the liscence that you are, I'm afraid you have no choice to accept this. I'm not breaking any rules - i'm not using my own name - i'm not claiming it as my own. I simply modified your code to work as desired.

Now, I am not doing this to give the people what they want. I am doing this to get the pleasure out of you all losing your users to an unofficial fix. You can lock this topic, whatever you want. Wont stop me from doing it. Which I will.
Get ready, devs.

Good day.
.....ok, and you think this hasn't been tried before huh? I have seen a few of these other "stable" releases and they aren't as "stable" as the author makes them out to be. Like many others, people are going to assume yours is crap as well and just not care.

Your idea is old, and, further, it's cliche and boring, don't you got anything original? If your so good, why don't you make your own forum software?

I bet your evil laugh as you contemplate these things is going to be crappy too, much like your cliche'd statements above :lol:
I'm terribly afraid your opinion here doesn't matter... sorry sorry. :(
Another cliche'd saying? LOL well, my single opinion doesn't matter, but as you will soon find out the opinion of a large amount of people certainly does matter, and adding my voice to this certainly does have an impact, it's how human social structures work.

FronServo, the joke is on YOU. For once you release your marvelous new vision of phpBB, I will then take your Phopbamb code and release an even more improved version. Now, if I know the how the human mind works, people will like my new and improved version of Phopbamb, and flock to my system. Your userbase will run dry, and you will be forced to admit defeat, and then fizzle away. Then I will control the bulliten board universe.

All in good time my friend.
