It will not happen.
There is a mod that will enable you to have it thought.
Th reason(s) it will not happen is:
  • Can make the already complex code even more complex.
  • Can make users post more and spam more since it is easier for them to just reply without loading another page. (Loading another page can prevent people from posting irrevelant posts.
  • May slow down phpBB.
  • It will open up people making them request and/or ask questions why there isn't a smily box, BB Code Buttons, etc... It will just make people want more like even a poll option.
  • More reasons too...
I hope you get the idea. :)

I didn't say it won't happen ... I said at present there are no plans to include it.

Well ultimately everything will happen at the end. I was refering to the final version of 2.2. :)

And if not, you can bet it will be available as a mod.

There is already one. For 2.0.0 actually.
All I know is that it has been done. I have only seen it in two boards.

I really hope you're not in the developers team. ;)

I don't understand php that much, but the mod for 2.0.x versions is not that complex, and I can say it doesn't slow down the foruns, at least there's no difference of speed that I can point out.
However, I'm not an php expert, and the developers might clear that out.

I didn't get the idea.
First, lots of users heve low bandwidth and having to load one page just to answer something is a very boring and tiresome process. You think that it might stimulate spam, I say it might scare off good users. If you have problems with spam, try some rules and moderators, they can be really helpfull. ;)
No need for bashing a really nice feature that, IMHO, should be in phpbb 2.2.

It could be enabled/disabled by the forum admin in the ACP, so people could take it of their boards if they chose to.

Anyway, if we have to live with mods, that's ok. I just hope the developers see what a great feature this is and put it in the code if they have the time. (You're great and I'm eargerly waiting 2.2 to come out, keep up the good work)

About the smily box, bb code and other things, they look like awesome mod material, but I wouldn't complain if they were in the code as well. ;)

I agree, A quick reply is an option, but it is not always necessary.

Just a thought.
