@22-23, I was referring to the webmasters. 24 is right, and that's what I've been saying throughout this entire topic. I don't want them to be on call, like ironcross32 said, but what I do want is them to *actually show that they care* about the site. That does not just include running the site; that also means, if necessary, performing the proper duties of a sysadmin, if they are self-hosting the forum. But this long period of radio silence, as 23 put it, is a very, very bad thing. What if a critical vulnerability in PanBB is discovered, for example, that makes it possible for any user to escalate their access rights to that of a full admin by just sending a special string via URL parameters, or via a special payload in any of the numerous forms that this website has that are available to guests and regular users. If the webmasters aren't around, how do we know that such a vulnerability would actually be fixed? This radio silence is putting this entire site in a very compromising position in regards to security (ad many other things) that may happen in the future, and I do not consider that a good thing.
