As admin I can change the phpBB files on my server, but I can't insert a div, add a class to an image or style my posts to make them look prettier. I would like to add classes to images, for instance, so that small images can be floated left or right with the text flowing nicely on their side, while I want large images to be centered. And so on and so forth. A little html can do a lot to prettify.
Not to be able to use it is frustrating. Many posts could look much, much better - and looks matter.
Not very satisfying. It's actually a bit 1990-ish.
Not happening. This opens up the door to security issues and is why it's not in phpBB 3 and why we don't condone the disabling of this limitation. Also even if you were to limit this to just admins or a particular group of users what do you do when someone quotes said post? Show the text without the formatting? That would look rather silly.
All of the HTML replacements should be handled via BBCodes which is very NOT 1990-ish.
