i don't know, but it's in there somewhere. you might want to see this though:

We request you retain the full copyright notice below including the link to www.phpbb.com.

This not only gives respect to the large amount of time given freely by the developers

but also helps build interest, traffic and use of phpBB 2.0. If you cannot (for good

reason) retain the full copyright we request you at least leave in place the

Powered by phpBB 2.0.10 line, with phpBB linked to www.phpbb.com. If you refuse

to include even this then support on our forums may be affected.

The phpBB Group : 2002

anyway, why does it bother you that much?

It's overall_footer.tpl

However, if you are using a theme other than SubSilver you have to leave the copyrights on.

Removal of the copyright notices show a disrespect for the people who spend thousands of hours programming this software. You receive no official phpbb support if it is removed.

Actually that is incorrect. You don't have to at all.

It is just recommended that you do. The GPL allows you to remove links if permitted.

They recommend that you do, and support on the phpbb forums may be affected, but you do not have to at all.

You can even redistrubute it as something totally different, however you would have to release it for free and under the GPL.

it would not be very nice :)

but sometimes when you have lots of mods installed & i takes a lots of space you can shorten it by having it all in one line (like mod name and link to author) :yes:
