  • I would like to buy vB, but before that..

    Well, i've always wanted to have my own vB board? May i call it forum?
    But before i spend all these money, nearly 200$ (it is plenty of money for someone like me) i would like to
    have some answers on the following:

    1. If i purchase vB, do i get a free domain such as .com .org. .net, for free?

    2. How long do my license last for?

    3. Am i able to customise my board and make it just like i want it?

    4. Is there any tutorial on how to learn PHP? (do i need to know php before buying vB?)

    5. Can my board relate to just about anything? (that is not illegal, ofcourse.)

    When i get answers on these few questions i might buy the vB.

    Greetz, Lyaz.

    1. No, you are buying software, hosting/domains is separate unless they offer some hosting service I am unaware of.

    3. Yes you can quickly customize it. There are lots of skins, resources, varialbes and templates to mofify. If can be as easy as you like or complex. But it really can be quite easy to quickly change the look of the forum with no technical knowledge at all

    4. You do not need to learn PHP, but you can cause PHP is great.

    5. Your board can relate to anything. You own the software.
    Hmmm. Cheese.

      Not so sure about #5 now that I think about it since their name is on it.

            Soo.. for example my forum may NOT contain game hacks or cheats of any kind?
            I was not really thinking of hacks or cheats but anyways it's good to know.
