  • Pirated forum

    Hello.
    It seems the pirate report system on this site doesn't work properly, because no action was taken... So here you are:

    <<<URL Removed>>>

    This site is using pirated version of vBulletin (as far as I know it is vBulletin v3.5.2).

    I know that posting this thread in this forum breaks rules, but I hope that at least official note will be sent to forum administrator.

    Sorry for breaking rules.
    Sorry for possible mistakes in this post.
    Yours sincerely.
    Yury.

    It works just fine. If you already reported it, then they know about it. No need to start a thread about it. If it's an illegal copy vB staff will take care of it, reporting once is all that is needed.

        Did you ever stop to think it's a legal copy?

          You know that it is against our rules to post such an URL, but you still do.....

          If you suspect a board to be running unlicensed, then please report it using http://www.vbulletin.com/piracy.php

          Each report is handled and if needed action is taken. We however do not have a magic button to take down a website.

            It can take awhile sometimes.. or like Mayers said, it could be a legal copy. I've had someone report one of my forums many times, though I don't care since it's licenced. But it's funny how people still will report after years, not thinking it could be licenced

            Just report the url and let the Piracy team take care of it their way. You did you job and they will take care of the rest

              Marco: No magic buttons? Try finding a keyboard with one on it...

              Honestly, in my opinion, the "one case" reporting is usually based on some kind of "bad relationships" with the forum administrators. If you're continuously thinking about taking down one forum, it can mean 2 things: a) it's really worth taking down because of some losses it's producing for you or your friends b) it's not about the piracy, but rather a personal wish to bring some troubles to another person. Nothing more to say, I guess.

                  I think magic button for closing all pirated sites will be good present for you, Marco, won't it? =)))

                  P.S. This thread should be closed, shouldn't it? If it breaks rules...

                    Technically, it's not, anymore =) You see, the main reason why one shouldn't post a link to a suspected illegal vBulletin forum like that is because it might be a legal resource, and in this case, such a report will harm the board's reputation. This is why all such issues are handled via a private report form or the e-mail. I'm sure that in case the anti-piracy staff will need additional information, they'll contact you using the address you've written.

                      Ага, я сам ставил форум этот, сам качал дистриб с пиратского сайта и "этот форум может быть легальным".

                      I think they will only need the hosting administator's e-mail... I can provide it if they need it...

                        Yes, but at this point, I don't think there are any other significant notes which might be added to the discussion, especially if you're saying that you've helped these people to install the software.

                        Please close this topic.

                          Is that coming in 4.0 too?

                            Not much more to add to this thread.
                            Closing.
