Re: How does a MOD become part of an official phpBB relase

For example, Quick Reply feature is always heavily asked for, but the developers feel that it's in the best interest of phpBB to not include it. okay, I see the point - however, wouldn't it then be appropriate in such situations to simply include a feature but make it optional (and disabled) by def...

Re: How does a MOD become part of an official phpBB relase

thanks for the reply, ok - I see. So if I wanted to see a certain functionality implemented some time, I wouldn't even have to recommend a certain mod, but merely suggest the feature itself ?
