Q1. I found this modification and it looks really good. Trouble is, it has been archived. Why is this?
A1. If you have found a modification that shows it has been archived, it was probably due to several reasons:
Q2. vBulletin Modifications don't appear on the index. How is this done?
A2. vBulletin.org uses a modification that hides the vBulletin Mods sections on the index. Here is a quote from Paul M on the matter:
Q3. Someone uses a Nulled version of vBulletin. Where do I go to report?
A3. If you suspect someone is using a version of vBulletin that has not been bought from the official source, then you should go to the vBulletin.com website and follow the link to Piracy. Report the site there and that's it. You will never hear the results of the investigation.
Q4. vBulletin.org is running slow?
A4. Sorry to say this, but no website will keep at the same speed. vBulletin.org and vBulletin.com use the same database so if vBulletin.com runs slow, so does the .org. You can't do anything to prevent this, but just wade it out and see if things return to normal.
Q5. People are downloading my modifications, but don't click Install!
A5. Unfortunately, you can't force everyone to click install on your mod. There is a tendancy for people to download, see if it works on their forum, then come back and click install. If your mod is Not Supported, then there's not much chance of your mod being marked as installed, as you don't support it.
Q6. I found this modification, but it doesn't work on vBulletin 4. Will you update it to the latest version?
A6. There's probably a chance that coders have no more time available to dedicate in updating their modifications to the latest vBulletin version. They are probably waiting to install vBulletin 4 so that they can work on coding their mods for vB4, so please be patient and don't spam the boards asking this kind of question.
Q7. I don't know how to install X hack/style!!
A7. There's no point posting threads asking about modifications or styles in this forum. You should use the mod thread to get support, providing you've clicked Mark as Installed to receive support.
Q8. Why does vBulletin.org not use the latest version of vB?
A8. Lynne made this post in a locked thread stating why. Asking this question will just result in a thread lock and the following reason being supplied:
Q9. I am getting this notice that I am unlicensed. What do I do?
A9. Quoted from Marco:
Q10. How do I delete my account?
A10. You can't and you won't. Please do NOT post messages on this forum asking for account deletion, because it will not happen.
Q11. I seen a user post advertising links all over the forum. What do I do?
A11. If you find a user is spamming the board with advertising posts, do not reply but click this button: . This will allow you to report the post to the moderators. If the post is the same across the forum, report one of the posts. The reason given for these posts should be "spambot". As mentioned, do not reply and DO NOT CLICK THEIR LINKS.
Q12. Can I download the styles used on vBulletin.org?
A12. The styles used on this site are customly designed and therefore you cannot download them.
Will be added to as necessary!
If you have something that you wish added to this FAQ, you need to contact me or a moderator, don't post in this thread, per Marco's rule below.
vBulletin is down the drain. IB ruined it by attacking XenForo.
I am a MyBB and XF modder only.
