      Dang. I wish they had more downloads than just the latest version of vb2 in the members section.

        Imagine this:

        When 1.x came out, everybody thought it was cool ..
        When 2.x came out, everybody thought it was cool ..
        When 3.x will come out, everybody thinks it is cool ..

        As long as the source code is great and bugs are fixed and features are added. I do not mind how it looks .. that is why we 'modify' it after purchase.

          Were 'kinda' still on 1.x. Most of the code is 1.x.

              *cough* That's allowed if you have a special license which you'd know that if you've read the licensing agreement *cough*

                There are a handful of forums that paid to remove the copyright at the bottom, fanhome is one of them.

                  Just out of curiousity, how much do you charge to remove the copywrite?

                      I was still running 1.1.x as of November. I didn't want to lose my template work...I had to wait until I was ready to invest time in the new layout/overhaul. vB has indeed come a long way.

                        I was still on a modified 1.1.3 in January of this year with 20k members. I think we're seeing, the bigger the board, the more pain in the ass it is to upgrade! I think I have my vb2 looking just like my vb1, which was the point... I still use the vb1 under the post icons, I think they look better... and yea, I remember that vB1 look that Chris posted!

                            Well the copyright doesnt bother me, as it tells others what they should be using

                            But sometimes you do not need to let everyone know your best secret in certain fields, so others do not start a site like yours, I have seen it happen in a few choice fields, usually haveing to deal with money.

                              Well, it bothers me a great deal, for a variety of reasons.

                              I was just informed that the copyright notice at my site, http://www.thelaw.com, contains an invalid copyright notice and that I'm in violation of the license. No joke. Much to my surprise, Jelsoft considers the "Powered by" line to be part of the copyright notice since vB comment tags are now the defining indicator of what constitutes valid copyright notice. I read the license, gave them more than a bare copyright notice -- and we still have a difference of opinion.

                              I'm not sure what I'm planning to do yet but I have been looking around, especially at the incredibly impressive PHPBB2 at phpbb.com. I'm not paying any extra fee nor getting into any extended dispute about the 2 line requirement with promotional language that is something more than legal copyright notice, IMHO.

                                I could be wrong but I thought a valid copyright notice must include a year. As I said, I could be wrong though.

                                The wording on the licensing agreement seems pretty unambiguous:

                                All vBulletin copyright notices within design templates must remain unchanged (and visible).
                                I'm not sure why this presents such a burden, but whatever you decide I wish you the best of luck.
