Just checking in. Haven't been by in awhile. Currently in our 14th year of operation with PHPBB2. Not at 1 billion postings like GAIA was - but closing in...

How has everyone been?

I haven't done much with phpBB2 the last years, but I'm still an avid fan of its codebase, so maybe when I find the time, I will return into modding.

Still here and call into this site many times a day to check for new posts and remove any spammers.
My own site is still going strong since 2004. Some members have been lost to Farcebook groups but some have also returned.

In non-English languages, switching to phpbb3 will result in the use of utf8 and a significant increase in the load on the server, since in utf8 the characters of the national alphabets occupy twice as much space. Go to phpbb3 is not economically profitable. Especially in Russia, the economic crisis.

Still checking daily, though I haven't used phpBB2 in years and don't even have a setup where I could install it. I like to help out when I can icon_smile.gif

What is your site? Have you made any significant changes to the code?

controlline.org.uk

Quite a few changes to code as there are now near 100 tables in the database.
One or two mods have failed over the last two or three years but nothing has really impacted on the running of the site.

My main board was installed in June 2002, and went live in August 2002. Still going, like the Energizer Bunny. icon_smile.gif

Which mods failed and why? What do you do with the extra tables? I guess we are ones to talk - running 153 tables on ours.

To be honest I can't remember which ones failed but as they were accessed via the menu in the navigation I just removed the item from the menu and left the tables alone. If what they were comes back to me I will let you know. The fact I can't remember probably means that they were only a minor part of the site and little used.
Just remembered that one was a "User upload" one that members used for adding photographs. It was little used as the Attachment Mod was easier for members to use and I also have one built into the posting box. It was a PHP change that killed it.

It was "PHPBB User Upload ToolKit, v0.4 - Starfoxtj"

We heavily modified a few mods for attachments, photos and music/videos. Attachment Mod, Smartors Photo Album and the two forks of Music Online. Currently over 5 million photos in Photo Album and close to 100 million attachments in attachment mod. The original code of those were never designed for that much content so many changes were needed.
