On the contrary, we can use all the help we can get.

A couple of features that are not a part of phpBB currently but I think are core:
1. Spam filtering.
This includes reverse captchas, tokens, akistmet integration - anything possible to reduce the amount of spam. Similar measures should be used both on registration and posting. In addition, post throttling should be employed (say, 1 post every 30 seconds) and excessive abuse (1 or more attempts per second for 5 seconds for example) should temporary lock users out.

2. User flag system
phpBB already has a very basic flagging system. It should improved to be more visible and relevant (warez? haven't seen that in ages). In addition, automatic flagging should be developed to alert moderators to suspicious behavior. For example, bumping several old threads (more than 3 months old) in a short time-span. I'm sure the moderators have a list of patterns they recognize as suspicious.

I would like to be able to download a batch of my posts and have the returned strings be exactly the same as the strings I submitted (including BBCode and no HTML entity translation) so I can make periodic backups. Base64 encoding would be acceptable. The transmission format could be XML or something else. This is a low-priority feature.

Edit: This post was recovered from search engine cache. Ironic.

A micro-post feature. If a post is shorter than, say, 140 characters, the template surrounding it is dramatically reduced.
