    I didn't start posting here in the volumes I have been to geta job with IB/VBS, no. When I first bought vB around 7 1/2 - 8 years ago, I had to use the site a few times although I got a lot from the site without needing to post - and not just fixes for problems but hints, tips and some downloads too. When I found myself unemployed a couple of years ago, I found myself coming on here pretty well every day and started to give something back for what I'd taken out of the site.

    I enjoy doing it and now I've got the opportunity to call it a job rather than a hobby.

      No, that's not why I post here. I post here because I like the people (read: staff and a select few members ;D), and because it's the forum I've been a member of for the longest (all the others have closed or gone to hell).

      Landing a job with them would be nice though, I need one. xD

          I'm just a member for the free beer that Wayne promised us back in 2000. As you can tell we are still waiting...

          Wayne?

            I suppose that is in response to this thread here:

            and my response was:

                  O'yer... if you sent me to the store for beer... it could take a while as I would have some drinking to do on the way back.

                    If anyone sends me, they'll be disappointed fairly swiftly. :P I don't think i'm quite old enough to buy anything at the moment.

                          I'm still only 17! But it's nice to know there's another younger member on here.

                          Legal age here in NZ is 18, so next year maybe, but they are thinking of putting that up to 21 i think.

                          I am!
                          Meh.

                            Back to the topic... I came here to get support and give support where I could. In fact, when I'm not actively developing a vB powered site (or testing/waiting for major new releases), you won't see me here for weeks or even months at a time; not to be anti-social, but because I'm way too busy to "hang out" on any forum. But in reality, if I was ever offered a job with these guys, I'd jump on it. I have a long way to go with my skills, but whatever use I can be to the team, I'm there. I won't be a coffee gopher, but I might make the beer runs. ;-)

                              Howdy....not sure if this is the right place to post this or if we are even allowed to do it.....I did do a search and could not find anything.

                              We have been running VB for 4 years....and just purchased 4.0

                              We are looking to hire someone to "pimp" our forum. Update it....make it look and act great...etc....

                              Please point me in the right direction on where we can find somone to do this for us.

                              Thank you!
