  • I Have a question

    I'm buying a forum from this one guy. And he has promised that he will tell you guys to put my name under the forum once I buy it of off him. And he says I will have 100% control over this forum, so how can I know I have 100% control over it?

    Honestly you don't. Please note that when you get a license from an unofficial source, you assume all risks, including the possibility that this license could be phony or charged back and revoked. You should read this article:

        That would be between you and him. We have no control over that.

          Is this a real vBulletin forum or a fake one?

          You can delete the link if it's spam, but just look at it first.

                It looks like one.

                  They are vBulletin, they just have the copyright hidden. Which is bad, if he didn't purchase Branding-Free.

                    I can see the copyright..
                    Anyways, I would just set up your own forums, much smarter.

                      I mean, its there, it just needs to be visible without having to highlight it, IIRC.

                      But thats offtopic.

                      It's better to purchase a license and set up your own forum. =D
