Re: Load default language before other languages?

Hello imkingdavid,
I don't how the cache works. But I think the cache is not related to the user. Yes? So I think there should be not a big difference.

BTW. The cache here on Area51 at the moment is not running well. At least for me.

Re: "Official" integration with Akismet

Hello Callum, but Akismet could give a more intelligent answer. All other HTTP blacklists are doing it better and more usefull. I need the ip addresses of the users and if possible the names of the blocking blacklists. Without this information your feeback is not usefull for me. ... If every phpBB b...

Re: Need thoughts on "Users send e-mail via board" option

Hello Derky, :oops: Sorry, but I think the topic gets off-topic first some posts above. Okay, I will come back now. Plain text email addresses displayed? No, absolutely no! (User) Administrators can see it. That's enough! Email addresses are the only one true personal information. So the board found...

Re: "Official" integration with Akismet

Hello drathbun, Akismet is not only checking the message. It's able to check ip, username, e-mail and some browser information, too. And it's the job of the Akismet (and other blacklists using) application to use these test results in the right way. But here really is one problem with Akismet: You o...

Re: Need thoughts on "Users send e-mail via board" option

Hello Callum, but you are using the board (for free)! ;) It seems that we have different views for this point. I don't feel annoyed by newsletter e-mails (or mass-emails) which I get from websites there I have registered a free account for me to use the plattform, services and information there. But...

Re: Need thoughts on "Users send e-mail via board" option

Hello Mike, IMO the "Allow Administrators to send me emails" setting should be removed completely. I think it's nonsense. At least it should been separated from founders. I think "Allow users to send me emails" needs not to been placed on the registration page if the default setting is No. Bye Martin

Re: Load default language before other languages?

Hello Nils, at the moment I'm thinking about doing an Advanced Multi Language Support MOD for Olympus to to add all of the told missing core features. Maybe I will do it in June or July. I think I will add a function which looks for existing language files. If at least one file is missing then the c...

Re: IP ban guests?

Hello,
IMO banning is only usefull for recent high-load attacks. The problem is, that phpBB has no maintenance policies and tasks for it. So you will have a lot of false positives. I prefer blocking with third-party remote blacklists: Blocking vs. banning.

Hello,
I agree with nickvergessen and Derky, too.
The preference is PM, Email is optional.
