Post by Gambit37 » 14-May-12 19:47

I got this private message the other day, thought you'd all like to see it:

My name is Jeremy Rogers and I run phpBBHacks.com, a phpBB resource launched in April of 2001. It’s nice to meet you.

I am writing you today to let you know that Dungeon Master Forum has been selected as the Featured phpBB on phpBBHacks.com for the month of April 2012.

Nope, it's just some site called phpbbhacks which award sites that customise the phpBB forum software. So basically the award goes to Linflas and Christophe :-)

Yeah, probably, I didn't really pay it any attention to be honest, too busy.

Having a look at other forums awarded, it looks like they randomly pick a skinned phpbb forum and congrat them :roll:

Congratulations to Linflas and Christophe! :P

Oh, but the "award image" is a huge disappointment - I thought there would be some sort of a gold medal and laurel wreath or something and it's just a blue text on white background. :|
Finally playing and immensely enjoying the awesome Thimbleweed Park-a-reno!

Nice one - well done Linflas and Christophe, and everyone who kept the forum going over the past however-many years! :D And I doubt it is random - they want to show good use of pbpBB software so they will pick something with at least some artistic merit.

Even if the choice would be random, at least they wrote a little description - a thankyou in their forum wouldn't be that wrong.

Indeed, it's not as if we're twelve years old and impressed by such things. But hey, at least it's nice to be recognised ;-)
