    What utter nonsense, no one misleads you into downloading anything.

    Its your choice whether to download a FREE addon, knowing that it may not be supported (you can easily read the thread and check when the author was last online to see how supported it really is).
    Baby, I was born this way

          Or, the vBulletin.org staff could actually do their job and not allow developers to mark their products as supported and they actually arent. Its been a problem for years with vBulletin.org. People looking at something that says "suppoted" download it, and then find out afterword their screwed because the developer doesn't care.

          Support = Supported
          Not Supported = No Support

          They need to learn what those words mean before just randomly marking everything they upload as supported in order to get more "Installed" clicks.

          I bet I can go through well over half of the items listed on vbulletin.org that are marked as supported and probably less then 1% are actually supported. Someone release a new product for free, marks it as supported, gets all exicted, supports it for 2 months then get's tired of it, and just ignores the members.

          Sure, no one forces you to download that stuff, its nice to have free stuff. But that's not the point. The point is the staff there has 0% control over what the developers do. You can complain and complain yet you see dozens, and dozens of products where people have been screaming for help on a product marked as suported for 6 months, 12 months, yet no reply. Yet someone its still supported.

          I guess that word "Supported" doesn't translate well to other languages/countries. I don't know.

          Utter nonsence, is marking something supported then ignoring people when they beg for a year for support. More like utter rudeness. It IS misleading. In a court (at least in the United States) that would not go over. If someone gave you something free or otherwise and said it was supported then didn't support it, they can be forced by the court to support it. If its not supported they need to mark it as not supported.

          I buy a computer because of support, I'm told its supported. Then I find out that the tech support never answers the phone when I call, YES that IS misleading.

          Same issue that vBulletin.org has. The staff can't control the developers. Or just doesn't care enough to do it. I've seen dozens of complaints about this issue on the feedback boards at vBulletin.org. The staff said at one time they were aware of the issue and going to find a solution to it. That was over a year ago. I wonder what they came up with?

              Now that vB has gone Gold is there any ETA on when this is going to happen? I'm looking forward to seeing all the added features.

                Its will probably be months, IF they even do anything with it.

                I won't be installing it anymore because its now at vb.org because soon it will no longer supported by them either. I'll just lose my money on this purchase.
