    The 'v'

A fraction of a second in their mind might have decided on this. They've always said it stands for nothing. And if people wish to think it stands for virtual bulletin or visual bulletin or something else that's fine. Truth is, it probably does stand for nothing. Just a random pick to get a unique name.
    And from http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=73275

    It doesn't mean anything particular, but the link with vB and VB in [is?] not a coincidence.

    I'm sure that other, better-informed people will be along soon to answer your other questions.
    Incorrect, as Wayne Stated in this thread:

    well, you get our drift

    However, someone actually emailed John Percival, a vBulletin founder:

    1.The v in vBulletin doesn't represent anything, it's a random character.
    2.You can use ImpEx to convert from MyBB to vBulletin, however, your users will need to reset their passwords, as the passwords in MyBB are encrypted.
    3.As above.
    4.There will be a new licensing system with the release of vBulletin 4.0. No information is available, however, if you buy vBulletin now, you'll be able to upgrade for free when it is released, providing this occurs within the first 12 months of purchase, otherwise you will need to pay to maintain access to the latest vBulletin versions, not including maintenance releases for that brance.
    5.As above, however, processing can take up to a maximum of 1 hour.

    started a topic Before I buy...

    Before I buy...

    I'm not really going to purchase this until next month really, but just planning ahead.

    I have a few questions before I buy....

    1. What does v stand for?

    2. If I was to purchase a license, is there a way to convert MyBB 1.4.8 to vB 3.8.4?

    3. Will I'll be able to keep this account I'm using here. So this way vbulletin.org can recognize me and I can get free mods and themes from them?

    4. If i was to buy a owned license, after my year of membership it needs to be renewed. But is that including like I wont have access to the members area, like I can't download it any further? Or just can't download further updates?

    5. Do you accept Visa? If so how long will it be processed?

    Thanks.
