I thought we weren't allowed to alter the copyright?

you can't "alter" the copyright, that does not mean you can't change its look...

you can display it the way you like... with a font larger than 7pt, in any place you want on the site...

Im looking at a way of pulling the text from an xml or text file which will make changing the vb version easier...

my personal view of the version or the copyright is that if you loose your time giving it a style, you really need something to do with your site... this is one of the last things that need a flash to display it... but anyway... some guys make fun of anything...

well now 3.6.5 is out, so maybe you should of made one that just had:

Powered by vBulletin®
Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.

Because the version number isn't a requirement by Jelsoft.
