    vBMods Closing Down

    Please be advised that as of 1st March 2019, vBMods will close it's doors. We have been online since 2008 and we have had many ups and downs during this time. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and to all those who are active members. We cannot continue to run the server anymore.

    I have been paying for it out of my own pocket for 11 years now, minus the odd donation, and people seem to abuse our forum daily and download things without giving anything back. We have hundreds, maybe thousands, of unique file downloads every day. We had 152 new registrations in the last 30 days and only 6 threads/posts created by these members. We know everyone registers for the free downloads but they do not contribute in any way to the forum or its members.

    Remember, we are the last surviving vBulletin forum in the last decade, once we go you will no longer have access to the products we deliver. No other forum/website offers unlimited support, free items, custom products & plugins etc.

    I will be sad to shut this place down but it has been nothing but a drain on my pocket. If we had more active members, I would have probably kept it open. We have never had ads on the site until about 9 months ago where I tried to generate some income based on attachment downloads. This failed to generate anything substantial enough to cover the server costs so I removed it.

    I hope you all find a new forum or website where you can get this kind of support but I doubt you will find it.

    Good luck & goodbye.

    I would like to suggest you that please make a some kind of donation button with custom amount, where we can add our own desired amount so we can send you in that regards with our own pocket size amount, and please also available USD button in that option

    It's a sad news for me, I've been following this forum for a while and I think it's the best in its genre, webmasters have learned a lot about how to administer a forum and its rules, thanks to it we have some exclusive mods as well as modifications.
    A shame

    I have changed my mind. We will NOT be closing down anymore. I will come up with new ways to generate some kind of income for the forum.
