So it was the quick reply in phpBB2...for years. What I mean was, to have it as a core function of phpBB supported by the phpBB team, not a third party module.
Slightly better English than it was in 2005, still improving :D

Quick reply is not 3rd-party, however.

Including Facebook, OpenID etc. by default would create further privacy problems for end-users. I believe that phpBB should be able to function as a self-contained bulletin-board solution by default. 3rd-party dependencies should be added in modules.

As for hooks, I wouldn't have a problem with this.

I think they need to be brought up to date. See what you think about this - http://www.mpsmod.com/profile.php?mode= ... a35ddb9485 It'd the profile page from a MOD created here - http://www.mpsmod.com/ It's a phpBB2 MOD that ran out of steam when the young developer's life, er, "developed".

Something along these lines may help pull in younger users to board, get a fresh feel for the forums and create potential for fuirther Social Media integration.
