  • Look what I found

    Don't know where to post it so here goes: I was digging around my hard drive and found (I have purchased an unlimited lisence or what ever its called) an old copy of vB (version 2.0 BETA) but I can't remember my old username to log in. I know my password because I use that for everything and always have.

    Anyway, Can I run this on my server without any legal worries because I can not log in?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It depends on when you purchased your copy and what type of liscence yuo purchased. If you purchased a leased liscence, then it expires a year after the purchase date. If you purchased an owned licsece, then I would e-mail jelsoft and ask them to sen you your username and password.

          Thanks for the support!
          3 replys in 5 minutes!

          Ill search through my email account at the various places (hotmail etc) and see what I can find.

          Well I have to buy a new owned lisence if I can't find it?

          Thanks,

              So far your proof is lacking....you keep saying "username" and vBulletin software doesnt run off of a username. And the password is giving to you as well. You don't choose one. So your comment about knowing your password is incorrect as well.

                  Since your dad bought the license, he's the one with the information. Ask him. When he finds it he can ask Jelsoft to transfer the license into your name.

                      What proof do we have that you even have one? And lots of people have copies that didn't pay for one anyways. If thats all the "proof" you need than every warez user out there is legal then.

                      No there is not a username. Its a customer number. For the login its the username field but there isn't a username. Since your dad supposedly bought this why don't you just ask him for the information? And if he lost his customer id and password he can send an email with his information to vBulletin to get it situated.

                        Hmm...someone has a problem!

                        You knew what I meant!

                        Is this what you do to all your users?
                        I am going to buy it! Is that proof enough for you??

                          Corey, please stop.

                          What reason would he have to come in here and look for his info if he's using a pirated copy?

                            Thank you FireFly,
                            Apart from c-prompt all of you have been VERY helpful!

                            I guess there is nothing I can do about finding the old lisence. but thanks for your help anyway!

                              Just out of interest can people report warez sites that offer vBulletin for download?
