    Yes. They mightn't know that the other site is copying their skins.

    I disagree. Complete vB is a legitimate vBulletin skin design business and they do very high quality work and offer great support. The site that Fastip got their skin from was vbcomplete.com, a website owned by a company in Jakarta, Indonesia. Fastip's website was registered by Chris Cogan, of Defiance, OH and appears to be legit. So, we are talking about only one suspected (in my opinion) piracy website - or at the very least, one that allows porn to be viewed by any visitor, which is against the policies of vBulletin.


    I was not victimizing Fastip. I did what I thought was best. I provided the information they needed to take action against vBComplete (although chances are, that will be futile) and I provided a link to the real designer's website in hopes that they might find a way to resolve their problem. You could have offered additional help, instead of attacking me for giving the help that I did. It's not unusual for one person to offer additional support options, but it's uncalled for to bash me for doing what I felt was ethically responsible.


    Since you didn't know, it might be quite possible that Complete vB didn't know. They wouldn't be able to affect legal action if they weren't aware of the situation. I made them aware, on the chance that someone else hadn't yet. But you attacked me for it.

    Thanks.
    That's why you report the sites as piracy. Let our support guys deal with it.
    You don't want to get into contact with some support site that is dodgy they might hack your pc or do something else that isn't good especially if you paid via credit card. I wouldn't be surprised that they have your CC details and are using your money.

    Nice apology. However I did agree with what you said.

      I am familiar enough with Complete vB to know they are legit. I wouldn't report a site that I was that sure of. I didn't make any contact with the other site except to visit it to see what they had there and to run a WhoIs on them. The content, the obvious copyright infringement and the WhoIs information convinced me they were the bad guy. I reported them to vBulletin Piracy and to Complete vB. If they aren't bad, then I would offer an apology to vBulletin. I wouldn't be compelled to offer an apology to a website that posts porn that any child could be exposed to.

        email the site and let them know that there is another site that is copying them and give them the links to the other site.

          I guess you aren't reading my posts. I said that I contacted them with that information. I said that at least 3 times now (not counting this time).

I tired contacting them but still waiting.

            I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

            but it is supposed to look more like

            http://vbcomplete.com/support/ and select vsioncollision on the style.

            Ok, yes bought from fraud site should do charge back and buy from proper just so you get updates and are legit..

            Besides all that here is how to fix it, it is rather simple at that....

            The problem you have is that you dont' have Categories setup for your forums. Example http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/ vBulletin Sales is the Category with forums below it (I know you probably already know i am just explaining) So just make sure all your forums are set to a Category and if they already are make sure the Category is setup correctly (Act as Forum: NO)

              Hey HawksGirl,

              Like eJM said, vbcomplete is a rip off of our site (completevb.com), we're working hard on trying to get the site took down however he has already changed host once.

              Sorry for the inconvience

                Isn't there a rule about having more than one account??? Kidding. I didn't know Matt and iTechno were the same person. I also play a schitzo on my forum. hehehehe

                Good luck to you, Matt. You might consider reporting them to ICANN as well, and provide them evidence that they are using the domain name for illicit purposes. And it would be a good idea for any domain owner to buy up all similar domain names in both dot com and dot net to prevent just what has happened to Matt.

                  Her are the facts

                  Guys,

                  I am very new at this and just trying to start a forum for racers. I'm certain that I purchased the skin from complete vb. When I saw that my skin did not look right I went for help to the forum. I typed vbcomplete.com rather than completevb.com and had no idea I had gone to a different website because they look almost identical. I was very surprised when I saw all the negative comments because prior to making the purchase I had read some of the topics in the completevb forum and never saw anything bad. If I follow all your replies completevb is legit and vbcomplete is not. I contacted Matt Pierce who is listed on the complete vB website and he did get back with me on my request for help on how to fix the forum. Unfortunately I keep getting very short responses on how to fix it but due to my lack of knowledge and experience I still have not been able to fix it. I think I'm just going to find a different skin. If anyone has any idea on how to fix it let me know because I realy like this skin. I'm attaching the e-mail that I received to download the skin. Maybe I got it all wrong. You can see for yourself what I received.

                    Can you check?

                    Complete VB,

                    Can you check if I purchased from you? I'm starting to doubt myself that I might have gone to the wrong website.

                    My name is Delia Cogan

                    Thanks

                      Thanks for your help William but I don't think this is the problem. If you change the display to default style I have the Forums and Categories set right. Any other Ideas?

                        Got it fixed

                        Now that I know that there is a vbcomplete and a completevb I made sure I went to the right fourm (completevb) in there I was able to find the answer as to why my forum was messed up. I fixed it and now it looks great.
