Yeah I decided to ask this guy a few questions. When I asked the last one I for some reason got no more responses. :D You think it was something I said?

And why does mchatuser get it cheaper? LOL

One more question,

I was reading this http://www.rmcgirr83.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1258&start=20 can you explain first?

your mods will work without any affection as I will manually update the forum .
we have our own business which is separated from phpbb..com

if everything is ok let me know to proceed , all what you need to do is give to me ftp account to the forum files to upload the files of the new version and within 30-45 minutes the work will be done I start immediately after payment to our paypal account



thank you

Ok,

$75 is just fine. What about my modifications and what do I need to do to prepare the board for you to update it?

Do you work for PHPBB or are you a private business?
