Well then just add prefixes specifically for that forum. Just add a prefix for each version of vbulletin 3.x
3.0
3.1
3.2
3.3
3.4
3.5
3.6
3.7
3.8

and make it a requirement for users to assign a prefix for easier problem sorting.

These versions are now very old, and unsupported by IB - they are also now rarely used by the vast majority of sites. New releases for these versions are extremely rare, and almost always just duplicates of 3.8 releases. Therefore its time to semi-retire them.

In practical terms, this means the following will happen.

The 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 forums will be combined into a single "Pre 3.8" forum. This will most likely be termed the 3.x forums. This is not an ideal name since it wont include 3.0 or 3.8, but it will suffice.

The above forums will be closed to new releases. All existing mods will remain open for both posting and download, they will simply not allow new threads.

The [new] combined forums will remain in the main modification and style areas, they will not be moving to the archive area.
