This page contains some tools that I find useful. Most are rewritten and bug-fixed scripts from a site that will be closed soonish. That site is mine too and so is the original code for these tools.
If you find a bug in any of these tools, want to suggest a feature in a existing tool or think there is a tool that should be here; please don't hesitate to use the contact form.
Also please use the contact form if you have any other comment about these tools.
If you are modifying your phpBB forum you can find more useful tools and maybe some support at phpbbmodders.net
