David has had discussions with his son about this and it seems too risky at this stage.
Adding MODS (non-standard plug ins) can potentially cause instability on phpBB3 systems, and also make upgrade paths more difficult in the future. Generally speaking, our preference is to wait until certain features become standard phpBB components before installing them. The more non-standard things you at, the more complex interactions you can have been the software, the various MODS, everyone's browsers etc.... it gets exponentially more complex, and we'd like to keep the system side of things as simple and standardised as possible.
The only MOD we have installed now is a simple one which on the Index pages which shows who made the last post in each sub-forum, when, and what the topic was about. This was deemed to be important functionality and with little potential for causing technical issues.
Thanks for your suggestion, help and interest though... it is certainly appreciated.
