Releasing your hacks outside of vb.org

Any thoughts on this ?
Just been contacted by someone, but thought I'd like to check first

Its up to you really, but doing so you allow anyone who has access to the files to distrubte them on other sites.

Now there are sites with systems in place, but not every site.

Yup, that's is my no.1 concern really.
Currently which sites have systems in place to match up licensed vbulletin users beside vb.org?

That's not an official site.

My advice is to stick to official Jelsoft sites that has access to the licensed member database so that hacks don't fall into the hands of software pirates.

Just release your hacks here and/or on your own website. All english speaking VB users come here to download their hacks. The other sites are just for pirates.

I notice Cinq asked about forum.vbulletin-fr.org - I'm guessing this is for the same reason as me - I received a PM tonight asking for permission to translate & release my hacks on their site.

Does anyone know anything about this site - are they a pirate site, or trustworthy ? Does anyone know how they verify licence holders.

i see their is a vb germany but how come their isnt any other vb countries?. I would think having a whole lot of countries under one forum for vb would be more organized such as vbulletin-europe. where anyone that doesnt speak english goes their for vb license and if anyone needs translation for any hacks released here we can help them without worrying about non network sites or even thinking if the site is pirated or not.

vbulletin-fr.org seems like a courteous site to me. I dunno if they verify the license but at least they ask permission before translating hacks and they always give credit to the author.

Yep Paul, that's the case for me.
I like that they are polite to ask for permission first, but I wanted to check if their site ( as well as others ) verify licenses first before reverting.

Apparently, they do not check licenses.
