    phpBB copyright

    we request at least the "Powered by phpBB" be retained with phpBB linked to www.phpbb.com ... said message should be plainly visible and not hidden in the background colour, etc..
    Why was the link to phpBB removed?

    Well... every link out counts.

    And this forum once had to much links out, that's why Darrin used some scripts for external links, and I think removed the link from phpBB.
    But it is allowed. The "Powered by phpBB" could be completly removed without breaking the rules.
    The only disadvantage without the link is that in the support-forum of phpBB no support for this forum will be given.

    (And I doubt it is needed btw. ;) )
