Will it be included in the new features? It's probably *the* most used phpBB mod, and someone just had to ask about it at least once...

As I've said elsewhere, no it won't be included in 2.2.x ... I've checked with the physicists and been reliably informed that the world will not stop turning and the sky will not fall due to my decision.

Many features useful to admins/users are being included but frankly I view "quickreply" as being "quickspam" and "quick-how-to-implement-something-which-appeals-to-everyone-without-it-actually-being-a-pain-in-the-arse-reply". I'm sure several Mods will appear implementing various types of "quickreply" and thus users can add whichever version they prefer.

Ok, thanks for the reply. So... Earth won't stop turning, eh? Well, that reassures me ;)

Now I didn't say the Earth won't stop turning. I merely said the world will not stop turning due to my decision :) I can make no promises with regard strange gravitational effects or other phenomena.

Agreed, definitively : a forum - hopefully - is not a tchat.

What about a "force preview" at contrary, to force people to re-read what they've wrote : did you sat your mind on ?

Well, I was planning to create Quick Reply MOD based on DHTML, so it will only work for browsers with javascript enabled, making it difficult to use for automated robots.

I already made several DHTML related MODs and Joe Belmaati suggested me to do that via PM. I found the idea really funny. So, when I find the time, I will... :lol:
