Actually, no. Never is not a number. I recommend:
"At this rate, zero bugs will be reached in ∞ days"

2.∞.x anyone? :P

True, no?
This was just because the number of bugs suddenly started increasing yesterday instead of decreasing like it used to be in the past ;)
Note that the script only refers to the bug tracker and not to phpBB as a piece of software. Of cause there will never be 0 bugs in a software but there is a realistic chance that there a 0 reported bugs in the bug tracker. :)

If I recally correctly, in the 'old' sense of the word, supermods were people who had additional powers, but not quite full admin (i.e. they could ban etc), as opposed to people who can moderate the whole forum, rather than a specific area.

Global Mod makes more sense to me, certainly.

Very good point. There will always be bugs reported the question you should be asking is how many of those bugs are real. How many are caused by user modification, user error (incorrect values entered), or even multiple bugs. We all know how many users search before posting here, how many will be posting bugs without looking for matching ones.

I can't see the Beta being too far off, it just wouldn't make sense to be continually fixing small bugs in the system without releasing something that could possibly be upgraded for use in a live environment... The second Beta 1 is released my forums will be backed up and I'll upgrade, rolling back if required but I plan on using Olympus as soon as Beta 1 is released. It suits my needs better :)

Cheers,

Ya, it definatly would be sweet if they got this beta out...I am going to start building a new website for myself, and I am definatly going with phpBB3 for the forums(though, there is not going to be much for forums...I am thinking of having only 3...a off topic/general chat, a suggestions/questions, and mabey one more...so I will have to really customize the style, so its very simple and clean...and so I can easily integrate it with the main site... :)

I am thinking a cool color set would be black and bright blue with white text, and a bright pink for hovor colors. :)
(got the color ideas from this: http://www.deviantart.com/view/16100449/" target="_blank and this http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image ... bungLi.png" target="_blank )

That would be awsome I think... 8O
