It would be different. (By the way, I don't know that phpBB gives an error message for posting too large images, maybe you're refering to the images in the signature?) And it would be different because almost nobody is going to know the rules for posting proper BBCodes, the posibilities are limitless.

This would be no different.
Most admins don't know and don't care about "illegal" or "malformed" BBCode posts, and giving them the option of making the life of the forum users a hell is not a good thing. Nobody wants to see an error saying "hey, this is wrong, you should do it properly". As JoshyPHP said, if you know that this is wrong do it right for me and shut up.Pony99CA wrote:And remember, I'm not trying to jam it down your throat; I'm asking for the option to allow blocking malformed BBCode posts. Putting the admin in control of his own forum is a good thing.
Please, don't complicate things.
