    I would allow them, just that the current version of VBulletin does not provide for a different setting for difernet groups of users, it's global... It would be a major hack to deal with groups instead... I'll see what I can find, just that it doesn't look too promissing.

    I can't understand why they wouldn't have the ability to have different user groups. With different permissions and stuff. Doesn't seem to hard for the developers of vBulletin to add. Hell you've already got 3 groups Users, Mods, and admins. How hard would it be for them to add another few groups with customizable permissions? it only makes sense.

    I'll look into it. The problem is not with adding an additional custom group of users, it's the fact that the "images in signatures" option is global, not group-specific. In other words, if the images in signatures option is turned off, I couldn't add one regardless of whether I'm an admin/mod/premium member/... That in turn requires every page containing any code related to signatures to be revamped... and redone with every version upgrade of vB.

    I'm not saying it is anything you should do. I'm just talking from the development point of view. These are things that VBulletin should address. It doesn't make much sense to have any "global" settings for every user group. It's just rediculous. From a software standpoint you don't just say either everyone can access a certain feature, or noone can access it. You have to be able to set certain permissions for each and every user group, and each user individually if need be. You don't just have 1 global setting that apply's across the board. That's just poor coding on the part of the developers of vBulletin. Yes there should be a default user template and an easyway to just enable/disable features for all users, but you should still be able to individually enable/disable featuers on groups and individual users.
    Respect it.

    I have 100 mb storage with my isp soo i dont really need the 5 mb offer

    adds are a drag but not that bad.

    I would subscribe if there was a bf1942 server with pw.

    I may just get a month just to see but from what ive read i just dont need the offer

    did someone say gameing server?

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    Some companies charge $10 per incident just for a good security scan...

    Te service we provide has a number of features, some might appeal to you more than others. If in doubt, try it out and see
