  • Make the support forums only viewable by license holders

    I think it would be a good idea to make the vBulletin troubleshooting forums hidden from users who have not input their username in the vB license checker thingy. This would stop warez users from searching through the forums and possibly finding a solution to their problem

    Just my 2 cents (Or should that be pence )

    Good idea, except for potential customers it makes it look like there is no support.

      They can't post or search or download attachments, they can only manually look through threads.

      Turning off the viewing would kind of kill the point of having support forums as it would like there was no support.

        Especially since a great amount of users have no clue that they should login in order to post, and to have their nickname set in the members area for premium support.

          More like any support.
