Re: Control panel module system

Re: Control panel module system

Whilst I would not discount any of the above as being potential problems, and I would agree that there are some areas that need blocking, I would ask is this actually a problem in the real world.

Re: Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

In my opinion both pagination and "Load more" have their place and it is also dependant on where you are on the board and your role on the board.

Re: [PHPBB3-15928] Remove support for downloading backups

There already is a "Can backup/restore database" Admin permission but that no affect if the user is a Founder - and that is what this change is aimed at preventing.

I would prefer a change where there can only be one Founder as that would get around all of these types of problems.

What is wrong with clicking the "Privacy" link at the bottom of the page?
