    All punctuations are not in phrases, but in templates.

    why ?
    what is the benefit of this ?

    It is much easier to change a "phrase" than to mess around in templates....

    From my understanding, it encourages reuse of phrases. You don't want to create two same phrases, one with brackets and one without, as it is a waste of phrase and increases difficulty for translators (just think of the amount of new phrases XenForo would have because of the bracket / plus thing)

    why does the text "(You must log in or sign up to post here.)" and "(You must log in or sign up to reply here.)" need brackets after all ?

    hmmm.... O.K.


    I am running a Forum in german language, which is the reason I was asking as in german language the "brackets" look a bit odd.

    Anyway, I will go with a template-edit then.....

    :)
