  • Pre-buyer questions.

    From what I read and researched,

    1. vBulletin doesn't host the forum but is a type of forum?
    2. If I was to buy a 4.0 forum license, how long of membership is that? 1 year or permanent?

    Post-buyer questions

    1. Can I create a website where as a tab "forum" leads to the forum? Is vBulletin a whole website?

    Thanks!

    1) You need a hosting company/server to run your forum.

    2) It is a lifetime license.

    Yes you can have a site and add a link tab to your forum.

      One of my favorite vbulletin forums closed unexpedely, and I can't seem to find out why.

      Is there any way of re-opening the board? I can't even seem to find or contact the administrator.

      The name of the forum was called "Pottersville".

      Would there by any conflict in opening a forum called "Pottersville II", if I am unable to buy the license from the original?

      How does one go about contacting a specific forum administrator?

            The forum owner may have decided to close the forum on his own accord.

              Indeed. 'Her' name is Myra B, or at least that's how she was publicly known.

              How would one find her contact information?

              I'm interested in purchasing her license.

                Unless her contact information was publicly viewable there may not be a way to retrieve that information.

                  Well, none of the links work, or provide any further information...

                  I was, at the very least, interested in finding out why the board went down.
