Correct, they are not part of the default board. Nothing will be lost with any of these extensions. They aren't written into the PHP files, they are injected live with each page load from the extension files. Disabling these in the admin panel simple causes them to not load, as if they never existed. Simple enough, no more issues with the mods modifying the default files.

Just some personal preference stuff (I think Hercanic covered most of this):

  1. I've noticed a couple font contrasts that are a bit hard on the eyes: The pages with white background and light blue text, such as the quick links list. Also, the white background with very light grey text like the User Control Panel page. There are various pages where the grey font against the dark blue background could be lighter for easier reading such as the forum FAQ page. The grey color of "Smilies" to the right of the text box is a better shade, imo.
  2. Not sure if this is what Hercanic meant by "pagination", but it's difficult to tell which page of a thread you are on. After staring at it for a while I realized that there are white lines around the other page numbers, but it would be nice if there was a more visible indicator.
  3. Have the CC logo at the top link back to the main page.

All good notes, some I have, some I don't. Hercanic's comment on pagination was related to the light-blue page numbers on the top and bottom of threads. This is the default theme's colors, which I've yet to alter (like the drop down menus), so it looks off.

I don't know if anyone has reported this yet but it's pretty odd.

A lot of colors are still default or broken for whatever reason. Lav just needs a siesta every time he dives in.

Oooh, so they are finally doing what vBulletin has been doing with extensions. Upload the folder and done, nice. Though I remember some of the more sophisticated vBulletin extensions still required modding of default files, due to certain limits in the injection system. I wonder if phpBB3 is any more robust on that front.

From what I remember, I think at one point Iskatu requested his account be deleted.

I deleted it myself so that I could make a case about staff needing to lose global moderator powers.

Also, make the X for closing the notice a bit more obvious and fix the text color. A lot of people are whining to me about it. :3

I'm the janitor. I guess they whine to me because they think I'm the one who puts the chipotle on the toilet seats.
