I know this board is running Phpbb, but can phpbb use the Rep feature?

I often want to thank people for helping me out - I'm sure most of the users here have helped me out at somepoint or other. I think the Rep feature would be a good way to do that.

No, there is no rep feature for phpBB3. I won't add one either, as it requires modding the boards core files.

Wouldn't it just be one more column in users' profiles in the database & one line adding + and - links in the layout on the left to the post..?

It'd also aid in making the info to the left of our posts half a page long

Though Andy's already said no, I think you should be given the option to turn each piece of info on/off individually. Again, this involves modding core files, which Andy never does.

PhPBB works fine on its own without any modding. Also, every time that the cron jobs went I'd have to re-mod it, which I don't have enough time to do.

That's pretty much along the lines of what he said. I'm not sure if he said cron jobs or something else though... Andy'd have to explain it to you.

I said every time there is an update to the software I'd have to re-mod the core files again.

Database files aren't as simple as that; neither is programming.

I've looked into this and the mods are so extensive they require modding core files and only work with subsilver/prosilver templates. It won't work with our template.
