This is funny as hell. I just got that greeny message thing saying that I am currently showing up as unlicensed. I have entered the priority support on the vB.com site with the SAME e-mail address on this site but still I'm showing up as unlicensed. Do you have any idea what's going on? Is it because my license has been expired? Is that the problem? Dunno.

if you had a leased liscense, and its expired then thats probably the problem.

IF you were running another installation of vBulletin on the web and they found it, and matched it with your liscense number then thats the problem.

If neither of them are the problem, i suggest asking at vB.com :)

Yeah well my license is a leased type one. Wait a minute, lemme get this straight. I won't be able to access both sites now just because mine is a leased license? How funny though!

Well, if it's leased you have to renew it anyway to be able to run your site, right? ;)

Nope, I'll have to renew my license so I can download further versions of vBulletin and other stuff but I am legally allowed to run vB on my site even it's expired.

No, a leased license only allows you to run vBulletin for a year, only an owned license allows you to run the software forever.

Oh right okay, my bad sorry. Guess I should renew my license pretty soon then. :)

Thanks for your time though!

If you intend to keep your site runnign you will need to renew now as you are already expired and your forum is not licensend.

It's not expired yet but will be soon so I guess I'll have to act fast.

I believe you should double check your expieration date.

Well, the secret is, he wouldn't be showing up here as unlicensed if his license was still good. ;)
