Releasing your hacks outside of vb.org is good is you want to provide international support for your hacks : German, French, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Russian, Arabic, ...

Good people are willing to translate them if your hacks deserve it.

Now about making vb.org an international help site, that would be difficult. People often prefer to have contacts in there native language. vb.org is not designed to support multi-language hacks and downloads:
- is there a forum for each language?
- is there a search feature for hacks language-based?

That's why we need those foreign websites.

And vbulletin-fr.org is the most trustworthy French website for vBulletin software. The vbulletin-fr.org team tries its best:
- to respect the authors wishes and credits
- to prevent piracy (using custom licence validator)
- to cooperate with Jelsoft philosophy for a solution about an official system

I wouldn't be happy that jelsoft are making money off my code. Releasing code to the community doesn't sit well with access to said code being controlled by the jelsoft licenceing model.

What's wrong with that? Jelsoft IS a company - otherwise, why not release vB for free.
Sun is a company, MYSQL-AB is a company, Redhat is a company . . . .

No one is forcing you to release your hacks here dave

many others try, and have done so, only later to get discouraged with the ammount of pirates they help...

I agree with Erwin. Even though many scripts get leacked into hands of software pirates anyways... the support will not be the same nowhere else like in the official websites...

I think Geeky Design's support is pretty awesome..they aren't an 'official' site...

Basically, it comes down to preventing unlicensed users from accessing the hacks. The only (and currently somewhat defeatable) way at the moment is through release here.

Zachery speaks The Word. It sucks when someone puts many hours of work into something, only to find that it is being distributed to dirty thieves.

Good point trafix.

Should be raised with Jelsoft.

yeah like an approved list of freelancers/companies that quickly query a name to see if their licensed. a coder would apply and jelsoft can either approve or disapprove the application.
