Regarding the vBHosting Hack

This hack has been removed while its legality is investigated. If it is determined to be within the license, it will be returned.

so what happens to us who have allready installed it.
I have just converted all my subforums to use this instead.

*sigh*... this sucks.

I don't see anything wrong with the hack... it's not like the users have the full features of a vB forum... they just could customize the look of their very own part of my forum..

Sad news. :( I guess Jelsoft are worried this excellent hack will eat into license sales.

OMFG. Did my post say nothing? It lets a user create forums under a subforum and manage it. It is one instance, one installation. It TGOwhatever was legal, which basically let people have free vBs, then that hack is definately legal. *sigh*

As long as you don't give sub-forums out to other individuals nothing will happen. Chances are your system is completely incompatible for future vBulletin upgrades, but you knew that going into it right?

Maybe we need a VBHacks website not CONTROLLED by Jelsoft?

Upgrading vB will be no problem - almost no parts of the vBulletin are changed, there's just an additional admin interface to control it.

Actually TGWhatever is not legal that had already been decided. Each of those "Free" versions of vBulletin are considered to be pirated copies by us. This has become a very big issue lately with several hosts trying this and we have not given permission to anyone.

Your post had your opinion but based on previous staff conversations, the information was incorrect. As I said, after we review this and if it is decided to be okay, then I will restore it.

I was just wondering. It does use only 1 license? 1 Copy of the files? I have not checked out the hack myself, but I doubt there is any new installations of the whole vBulletin system itself. Can we get a clear statement of why an investigation is needed, and what exactly is being investigated?

I'm currently in a mood that makes me agree to you. However we should wait for an offical statement by Jelsoft (I don't think Waynes personal meaning is the official company policy here).

However, if it would be really illegal, I wouldn't release this on any site, controlled by Jelsoft or not... so let's wait what Jelsoft sais...
