Re: [RFC] Skip post confirmation page

Personally, I like them. Why? Because I get the choice to return to the topic or return to the forum. The choice is very handy when (for example) I am answering suppot questions on phpBB.com. Including a hook file in a default phpBB installation wouldn't really make sense. If there was going to be ...

Re: [RFC] Remove unnecessary permissions

u_chgcensors - if one runs a board for pg-13 audience one may want to prohibit everyone from seeing censored words. Also, there are boards in competitive settings where they censor their competition, in such cases admins may not want to allow users to uncensor the board. If you want to prohibit it,...

Re: [RFC] Skip post confirmation page

Personally, I like them. Besides, this can already be done in 3.0.x - one of our Development Team members posted a hook you can use. Maybe The hook can be included in the phpBB package and if users want the pages back, they can remove the hook file?

Re: [RFC] Remove unnecessary permissions

And no we don't use that permission on phpbb.com unless you call "using" it having it set to something other than the default (allowing users to disable word censors for themselves) I apologize, I don't remember having the option to disable word censors before I was promoted to the Support Team. I'...

Re: [RFC] Remove unnecessary permissions

I'm surprised to see team members here "yaying" the u_chgcensors removal (especially since it's used at .com). I would perfer to keep it, because an administrator might want to allow only certain users to change word censors and not others.

I'm game for the others though. ;)

Re: [RFC] disable banning / warning groups

The idea was to prevent it from happening in the first place. Like I said on IRC last night, a board I moderated had a disgruntled moderator that went in and banned everyone in sight (except, of course, the founder). It was requested by them and that's why the MOD exists for 3.0.x. I figured that it...

Re: Development Team / Community Liasion

My suggestion would be to turn this proposal into two somewhat overlapping roles: 1) A code reviewer who looks at code contributions, makes suggestions, does minor patch cleanup, and makes sure data is synced between GitHub and the tracker. 2) A "people person" who attempts to guide feature discuss...

Re: MCP > Forum > "copy" and "resync" actions always availab

Sorry, I must not have been clear. When i said "I'm assuming it's available because you will be copying it to another forum", that was my reason for the intention of allowing copying.
