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.

Why not? It's my understanding that phpBB wants to move more towards hooks for the software. Including a hook that disables the redirects will server both sides - those that want the redirect pages (like myself) have the option to delete the hook to retain that functionality.

Isn't this whole RFC invalid with the AJAX work anyways? You wouldn't see the post confirmation page at all.

The quick reply form is AJAXified, but the traditional post reply page is not.
Made by developers, for developers!

In that case users should be given a choice via UCP.

No, it doesn't. It's a board-wide option, not a per-user option.

I think you misunderstood me - when I said "Including a hook that disables the redirects will serve both sides - those that want the redirect pages (like myself) have the option to delete the hook to retain that functionality", I was gearing my post towards administrator users. It serves both sides on that front. ;)

Maybe, but it's still not a proper solution.

"Display interstitial pages" is not a very interesting setting.

Personally, I've used SMF boards on a 56kbps dial-up connection. SMF has no interstitial pages, and I was less annoyed than when I was posting on phpBB.com because I didn't waste 2 sec worth of time downloading a page with no real meaning. (Redirecting to the topic or the forum still confirms to me that my post was successfully submitted)

+1... These interstitial pages annoy me like hell, they are on places where they make no sense but wasting people's time.

Login After Activation
Prime Login Return
Prime Logout Return
Auto ACP redirection
Instant post redirect

5 mods to install on every single board to get the behavior at least sort of like it should be? C'mon. (Yes, I would be perfectly fine with deleting in case it would nuke all these annoyances, unlike the above process, it only takes seconds to complete.)

P.S. Should I open another RFC for another completely nonsensical ACP login interstitial?

Can somebody just work on a patch for this? (potentially by simply using one of the MODs)
