The ship never sailed, it sunk and now we're so far behind on having anything remotely close to the sheer number of vB3/4 plugins available that vB5 with all it's effort will never be to me (personally speaking) what vB3 or 4 ever was in their worst forms.

Progress has been made sure, tons of improvements to vB5 and it's nice now but it's still standing in modification quicksand.
It's all hindsight at this point but maybe a few more third party coders would have stuck around had they understood the API documentation. I realize they're all experienced with and used to PHP hooks but it's an outdated coding method compared with API apps. The intention of vB5 was correct. The implementation left much to be desired.

When i buy a new License is it still possible to download the latest Version of vbulletin 2 and here at vbulletin.org the plugins and styles for this Version?

Someone with License told me he can not download from the Archive.
Do i have to buy a original vb2 license for that?

I tought with a vbulletin License i can download all Versions of vbulletin and so also all mods.
Please help me thanks and yes i know what i do.
A straight no, looking at your join date.. age old users should move ahead.. rather then making new accounts..

I would say not to email VB Support, nothing we can do about it. Perhaps post on the Licensed CUstomers Feedback Forum on vBulletin.com and say you want access to old mods on vb.org. No, it won't change, but I always thought losing access to the early 3.x mods (3.5, 3.6, 3.7) especially was arbitrary and unnecessary. Many still worked on 3.8.x at the time.

You can still access 3.6 & 3.7 mods, its only 3.5 or earlier that are not available.

Almost anythigng released for 3.5 was duplicated in 3.6 onwards as well, by the developers at the time.

It would appear someone has restored access to 3.6 and 3.7 mods, though they are still listed as being the "Archives." When they were first archived you could not download the mod files.

"So they all went to XenForo, where they can code like it's the year 2000. LOL."

Dont know Xenforo but back in 2000 coding was more fun than it is now on this bulk and complex systems.

Look at vb2 its so easy to use and modify.
Then look on vb4 or 5.

They have always been available, I specifically wrote the code to allow it when they were archived, and put out a slightly different message.

vB4 is easy to modify (easier than XF) and just the same as vB3 - however, vB5 is a whole different story.
