Re: Database table names MUST have a prefix.

The problem is that phpBB is telling inexperienced people that throwing everything together in one database is the standard way to organise things. Better not feed ignorance. Too much is carried over from the old days! When it's dustbin day, you'll need to put the dustbin out, otherwise the garbage ...

Re: Twig Function Semantic Naming

The fact you propose something like Append twig_ for all the functions. This one is the most specific and descriptive and follows the same guidelines as the approach used for CSS. Doesn't that show that you are actually trying to cater for exactly the opposite, namely mixing contexts? The context sh...

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

  • Scattering discussions over many places/platforms doesn't bring focus.
