Re: [RFC] Contact Page

phpBB has a huge amount of users, they'll just recode their bots to decode it. That's reasonable. No smart idea comes to my mind: JS generation of a displayed address will handicap user's which don't or won't use JS. Pictures out of addresses could be read via OCR. Using entities for characters was...

Re: Multi Quote (or even Multi Moderation)

Well, in the end one single checkbox should be enough for every post. On the bottom of every page you can then select the action you want to execute (based on your permissions): " Action to perform on all ticked posts: [quote|merge with other topic|move to new topic|delete|print (that way you could ...

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

One of my moderators has a crappy internet connection and thus also accesses the board by his phone. To increase loading times, he used Opera 's option to turn off all pictures. That, however, will also eliminate button links for each post, like "edit", "quote" along with the other moderation button...

Re: [RFC] Contact Page

What about protecting the e-mail address with an image (just an image, not a captcha.) This would eliminate the possibility to copy the address to the clipboard. Or what would you type if you encounter a picture with an ambiguous font typing of Ill______O0@rnmwvvw.net (in another font type: Ill____...

Re: I am changing the post title

There is an unexpected benefit of counters - duplicate content becomes somewhat easier to spot (if same words are used in title)...it doesn't help with intentional abuse, but if as a user I am creating a topic [RFC] Human Readable URLs and I see that the URL created is phpbb.com/community/topic/rfc...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Switch to PHP timezone handling

It's not that we need to actually pre-select the right time zone - the whole list could be filtered, so only time zones show up which are +/- 2 or 3 hours of the current local time. Because there is no rule that daylight saving is always 1 hour delta.

Like a filter? Sounds good to me. The default value for that could be done with JS also, so most of the times users don't even have to enter a value at all. But they still have to submit it to actually reduce the selection.

Re: [RFC]Spell Checker

...not to mention that a spell check would have be maintained in every single language. Plus: what about multilingual boards? No, spell checking must either be done by the browser or a book (oldschool).

Re: xenforo, new forum software, great source for ideas

If phpBB is going to be squarely targettted at being the highest-security forum software, then naturally some usability features would not be implemented. I'd always chose this over everything else. And I know how valuable phpBB 3.0.9 is because I do understand the code and see how much effort and ...
