Well let's see if this works out as well as planned.


Things might get slightly temporarily broken in the future if we find something that needs improving. In case of the forum looking a bit borked, do a cache refresh (F5 and/or Ctrl-F5)

I've noticed there's no notification for when a forum has a new post other than either checking the post count or going into the topic. Also, the icons for when a topic has new posts, no new posts or is a hot topic could do with some customisations.

EDIT: Actually, the new post notification is there, I just have to remove the pictures to see it. Can you move it a bit, please? :P
EDIT2: I noticed the way to tell if there's new posts. Sneaky.

Nice to see a forums.
PHPbb huh ?, hope spam doesn't leak in.
Thanks for putting a forums up, nice to have a place where people can post.

There are some tricks to put links on top of PHPbb forums to go to parts of main site, instead of redirecting onto forums all the time.
Let me know if you want any assistance.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I changed the passwords to use CRYPT_BLOWFISH with work factor of 11.


In layman's terms, if the database ends up being leaked due to universe exploding or something, nobody will even bother trying to break the password hashes.

If I was a moderator, people who put animated gifs as avatar/signature would be banned immediately.

When there are things moving everywhere on my screen, it disturbs my reading. Yeah, I'm easily disturbed.

You would ban people purely for 'disturbing your reading'? I'm glad you're not a mod.

The ban thing was a joke of course, I just wanted to say I don't like it.
