Automatic Welcome PM
This Hack will automatically send welcome PMs to new members.
Message Title and Body are Phrases (Varname welcomepm in Phrasegroups EMail Subject Text and eMail Body Text), so you can have Messages in different languages.
You can also specify which User should appear as Sender in vBulletin Options / User Registration Options).

Details
1 Product XML

Contributions
German Language Pack by Metro Man

History
1.0.0
Initial Version

1.0.1
Updated for RC1

1.0.2
Added direct links to the Phrases in vBulletion Options / User Registration Options to make it easier to change the Text.

1.0.3
Fixed a slight Problem that caused PMs not being send under certain conditions

1.0.4
Fixed a Bug that caused PMs not being send on upgraded vBulletin installations.

FAQ
  1. Q: How to I set/change the sender?
    A: Go to ACP / vBulletin Options / vBulletin Options / User Registration Options.
    On the bottom, you will find an input box for the userid that should appear as the sender.
  2. Q: How to I change the message title/body?
    A: Go to ACP / vBulletin Options / vBulletin Options / User Registration Options.
    On the bottom, you will find an input box for the userid that should appear as the sender.
    In the description text for this input box, there are links for changing the text.
  3. Q: When I try to install this, I get "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /includes/functions.php on line xxx".
    What am I doing wrong?
    A: You are trying to import the XML as a Plugin which is wrong. It must be imported as a Product (ACP / Plugin System / Manage Products).
  4. Q: Why does this Hack not work?
    A: Although it is possible that you have discovered a new Bug that causes it not to work, it is more likely that you have made an installation/configuration/customization mistake.
    Before asking for support, please check:
    - Did you enter the Userid of the Sender?
    - Does the sender have permission to use PMs?
    - Does Usergroup registered have permission to use PMs?
    - Are you using the original Phrases?

Please only click Install if you actually have installed/are using this Hack, and click Uninstall whan you don't use it any longer!

No need to over-react. My fault, was server problem .

Anywho, is there anyway to make this so it sends to a PM to people who haven't confirmed their email address?

Over-react? I just classified this report
Should I have written "'Not a Bug" (as the status is now @ .com)?
Takes longer to type

Perhaps it was left over in your settinggroup table?
I had Cinq's glossary (3.0.x) show up even though I upgraded to 3.5

Short question:

I'm a german user and I've installed this mod. I like it, because I used it in version 3.0 too.

So my question is: If I import the product: Is then automaticly the english language installed (without import a language-file)?

That's settings left over from an old hack you got installed.
vBulletin upgrade scripts will not remove settings set are not marked as vBulletin default.
