Question

Hello, I am an Administrator on a site. The problem is I do not have a vbulletin license because I am not the owner of the site so I cannot view codes here.

The owner of the site is a corporation that rarely comes online. They only come online for technical support (they can't even get that right) and even then it can be a hassle to get a hold of them since they own so many dead forums. We rarely see them. Myself, and the other admins are the operation admins and I guess you can consider me the lead admin to some extent.

Another admin removed user bbcode profile tags recently because they didn't think we needed them anymore. We had them on the site for 7 years. We had a re-vote, and decided to add them back. This site is the only site that has the code and here is the thread in question:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=213388

Am I pretty much screwed since I do not have a vbulletin license or would you guys be able to give me some lee-way and PM me the code?

I didn't know if you guys needed some kind of proof that I am an admin so I screen shotted my admincp. I am the one who installs all of the bbcode on the site.

What you will need to do is get with the owner of the license and have them add you to their account...they will be able to add up to 3 users to their account to allow them to show up here as a licensed user.

I am almost certain it would be a violation of our policies for someone to send code via PM written by someone else here, particularly if that code was released as a vB product.

Also, that modification is in the graveyard. However, I have published something similar for vB 4.2.x that can be found here:

BBCode For Username HTML Markup [v1.2.1]

I would still ask that you go through the process of showing up as a licensed user, as I would rather stick to the site policy of licensed users only obtaining products here.

Thanks for the response.

Dealing with them takes forever so I'm just going to tell the other staff to use the mention tags we have instead.

I hope you can eventually get them to add you as a licensed user so you can benefit from everything vBorg has to offer.
