Does anyone know what the new 'Post rating' thing is that's appeared under all of our avatars - and how to use it?

I'd like to know too. Is it replacing Karma?

it seems to be part of the new version of karma, the new version still being very old and it doesn't seem to work with the latest version of phpbb so karma is disabled. But by the looks of it, even disabling karma doesn't disable all it's influence and this link appears so I'll have to look in to that. There's a chance I might be able to get karma to work with the current version of the forum or we'll need to look in to an alternative post rating mod.

phpbb? Why do developers make their acronyms sound like baby talk?

Oh, it gets worse. Guess what the first "p" stands for?

Interestingly, the first 'p' in phpbb stands for PHP.

As in the "php at the start stands for php as in the code" or just the first P?

This is turning out to be the most confusing acronym...

Php :?:
H
P
B
B

phpbb stands for PHP Bulletin Board. PHP stands for PHP Hypertext Preprocessor.
