  • Whats Premoded vBulletin?

    What is Premoded vBulletin? Thanks

  • #2
    It sounds like a vBulletin that has a number of modifications installed by default. I'm not sure on the legality of that, though, as it would mean that someone is reselling their license, and I'm not sure if Jelsoft allows for resellers.

      I've never heard of that. Do you have any more details? It sounds like maybe someone is selling a vBulletin that's already had some modifications made to it.

        There is no pre modded vBulletin. I believe it is either a nulled version (99%). Just to keep it short, it's not aloud.

            Hi,
            Here's a good post by The Admin Zone about nulled software:

            Basically, it is a "cracked" version of the software of script, like vBulletin.

                Do you mean the post? Well, here it is then:

                I recently replied to a very polite TAZ Member who wanted to know more about the reasons behind a banning. Ordinarily, Staff do not discuss these reasons publicly, but the information I'd provided may be very helpful to others:



                The user in question did something illegal and malicious, from both a practical and an ethical standpoint. Nulled is "voided, cracked, or stolen," or any other term you might want to use for "a copy not licensed by its legitimate developer." This does not included licensed boards that are heavily modified, but board owners should also be careful where they get their modifications.

                Many people think they can get a vBulletin or an Invision Power Board (among others) in this manner because it is free. Both vB and IPS have staff members on TAZ, but this is not the sole reason we take a firm stance against software piracy. Such boards are unsupported by their respective developers, may have errors created by "cracking" them (disrupting or cheating the licensing system within each), and can even contain deliberate vulnerabilities that allow whoever nulled them to hack the board at a later time, making this a bad choice for the user as well.

                Simply using a nulled board doesn't bar participation in the TAZ community, but most members take a dim view of helping someone who has pirated something that they spent their hard-earned money on. These individuals will also not be able to get reviews, to commission graphics designed for them, or to have access to many of the servics TAZ provides. Although staff will not actively look at the forums of each member, I'm sure you can tell from the kinds of sigs created and questions asked here that it's going to happen sooner or later.

                In those instances, a person using nulled boardware does so at his or her own risk, but may not necessarily be banned. We still reserve the right, as individuals, to advise the software developers--each of whom have a piracy reporting feature at their own sites--and those companies may take separate action to have the sites in question shut down. Not worth the risk, I'd say. Furthermore, individuals found to be offering nulled boardware will be immediately and summarily ejected from TAZ, with prejudice.

                  I believe ManagerJosh was asking Deathroow for more details. His bad for not making that clear.

                    Premodded = nulled/pirated. I don't know why you'd even want it? Just get a vbulletin, go to vbulletin.org and install the mods yourself. It's a simple process and atleast you will have a LEGAL licence.

                      well basically, it is illegal to distribute "Premodded vBulletin" because the only legal supplier of vB is the members area.... so most probably, Premodded versions are also nulled ones for a short answer

                        I am pretty sure you could sell a vbulletin license and a site as a whole which is pre-modded... I believe it is unlawful to start a company that sells vbulletin licenses for a lower price than that offered here, and to give it away for free..

                        Basically, NULLED means that someone got an illegal version/cracked/altered or whatever you want to call it and he/she is distributing it without permissions... Please do not download nulled versions... Also, report all sites that distribute illegal vbulletin files over here: http://www.vbulletin.com/piracy.php. Hope everything I said was right...
