At first just the attachments were removed, now I see the entire threads are gone too? There was excellent information in all of those pages.

(And because of this removal, they no longer appear in my "Installed Hacks" list either.)

I have every one of JumpD's hacks installed, each was excellent and truly helped define my forum's community. His hacks inspired me and interaction with JumpD helped me learn how to code for myself.

This is a very sad day for vBulletin.org.

Maybe the staff removed the threads because they no longer had valid files ?

JumpD removed his files from all of his post sand I believe he may have requested a removal.

I'd hope that wasn't the case, since the support threads had hundreds (literally) of pages of excellent information. Lots of folks who already have his
stellar hacks installed could've used that information. And now it's all gone.

If JumpD requested the threads be removed, that's a different story.

It'd be nice if the volunteers who run this place did whatever they could to make coders like JumpD (the true lifeblood of this community, IMHO) feel comfortable. As an active user and new coder, I know I'll be going whereever there's an atmosphere that makes guys like JumpD feel welcome and appreciated.

Because that's where all the good hacks and learning will be.



I'm tired of dead threads that keep getting bumped by users, wondering where the original coder has gone. Not even realizing the coder hasn't logged on in months. Complaining and begging for someone/anyone to fix their issue or fulfill their request. It's depressing, quite frankly, and I think I'm starting to see why it's so common.

I don't use a whole lot of mods on my site mainly because it's a business site and strictly for communicating with the customers. I have, however, used many on boards in the past and found when I couldn't get a hack to work right, I searched, studied and played around with it until I found the fix on my own. I don't really expect support for something that was free. I think alot of the complaining that is going on around here is much to do about nothing, but I haven't walked in others shoes so who am I to say. It just seems to me rather petty and childish...I wouldn't do business with alot of these people if they can't control their emotions...just my .02

It is vbulletin.org policy not to have a release thread with no modification files in the release forums after a certain length of time. Otherwise, the thread would be continually bumped by users asking what happened to the release and/or coder, and the forum would be much harder to navigate through with many "dead releases".

We try our best.. However, after recent events certain things will be reviewed.

I cannot comment too much on this for obvious reasons..

This is pretty much the main reason why the policy on "dead releases" exists.

There are innevitably going to be unsupported releases with the files still present that result in the same scenario, and hopefully we as a community can take a look at this and change things for the better.

Its out of control, sadly enough its a cycle people come, people go. Everyone will just have to live with it and move on. Blasting the staff telling them they arent helping the situation is useless, as it doesnt help the situation at all either. I'd imagine the only way anything will be able to get done is go straight to vBulletin, but even then thats probably not going to do much good :-\

I apologize for any blatant insignificance on my part. I’m quite confident, as was clearly stated by those that guide this community, that I will be replaced quickly by many more capable coders to follow.
Did someone really say that?

If so why do i release...

Also i have noticed that there is like 1 hack released everyday now (if its a good day)... When it used to be 6+ a day.
