Re: User Security

It would be nice if Rhea supported decoupling the logon username from the display name by default, so that you could specify that the username be anything that falls into a specified ruleset, but the display name on the forums is something different....that way someone that gains access to the memb...

Re: rethinking the "New" development changes

having three or more versions being developed simultaneously at one given time doesn't allocate our limited resources as we should. True...but once 3.1.x gets released development for 3.0.x will stop. Once 4.x is released development for 3.1.x will stop so on so forth. From looking at the different...

Re: Mobile browser support

So you're only going to cater to the 1-5% of the world that will have a laptop-sized mobile phone in their pockets when phpBB4 rolls out? I don't think that should be the focus of the mobile browser support if it were to be added in phpBB4. It should be a simple interface without any bells and whist...

Re: Attachment Management

my sense is that this will not be good for the quality of discussion. Agree 100% with that. #2 well, when I try to download this, it gives me the exact filename on my local computer http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=203301#p203301 So? Would you rather some random name? What benefit does...

Re: Attachment Management

Following the spirit of discussion... 1. Store by month instead of user_id Echoing what iWisdom said...why? What would be the purpose of that? 2. Rename each attachment Not sure you've looked at the current attachments feature but attachments are not stored with the original name. 3. Add watermark S...

Re: Wave Federation Protocol Integration (API)

Please at least try to think outside the box ;) I do try to think outside the box. But I also take into consideration Google's "excellent" track record for keeping private things private. I would like to be wrong of course but only time will tell I guess. It's a protocol not a service from Google. ...

Re: Package Management - was: Translations / styles

As it is now, MOD authors should be following our guidelines if they expect their MODs to be validated into the MODDB. I don't expect this to change with phpBB4. And you just gave another reason to show a notice/warning about the MOD/Customisation not being validated by the phpBB Team.
