Absolutely we need it.
No way. It's useless.
I don't know.

MyBB Security Forum Suggestion
#11
The thing is if it really will be useful or will it only be a semi-trash forum where all threads regarding hacking will be send and be ignored.
Support PM's will be ignored. Angel

They won't be ignored. If anything, they would be higher priority.

A place for everything, and everything in it's place.

unfortunately the latest exploit is coming from the actual script.... but a good server setup could prevent its being used....

I still voted Yes, though its apparently already a done deal.

Personal site: CommunityPlugins.com

Please do not PM me for MyBB support here. Use the forums, they are here for a reason. Thanks.

Yes and in such a case a sticky in that section or forum wide announcement would be nice.

I agree, we see threads like these all the time. It would be nice to have some basic security tutorials stickied Smile or maybe a thread containing links to a load of tutorials Smile

When the forum got restructed a while ago, I was hoping this was coming. Labrocca is quite right, this is a very important forum, as people reading and seeing others issues can also learn.
You know what's weird? Me.
