Help me, I'm turning into a vb.org addict

hehe

I'm still fairly new to vbulletin and it's vast (and fantastic) community, but already feel like I'm being sucked in.
Before I visited vb.org, I would just occasionally go to vb.com to check up on something I needed to learn. Now, I hardly ever visit vb.com and am always on vb.org.

I don't feel it's a bad thing though ofcourse, I have gone from close to no php knowledge to completing small vbulletin freelance jobs for people in the space of a few months, it's amazing me how much and how quickly I have and am learning here.

I'm even working on some themes that I plan to release here eventually, but they'll take their sweet time.

I guess what I'm trying to say is (1:35am, you'll have to forgive me for being all over the place) is thankyou to the vb.org community for all it has given me, and I can only hope to contribute a small part of that back to you guys.

My name is Jack and I'm a vb.org addict. Who's next?

Hello Jack. My name is borbole and I am a vb addict too

That makes 2 of us. I enjoy hanging around this forum and vb.com a lot myself as well. The time I spent here has been very educotianal. Both forums are a gold mine of info. I have learnt a lot of things here and I try to pay it forward and contribute/give back whenever I can

Hi Jack, I am a vb.org and vb.com addict and have been for a while. I came here first to learn, but found the best way to learn was to help out and read, read, and read. I ended up sticking around after solving my couple of problems.

Welcome to vb.org.

Welcome to vb.org.
That's exactly what happened in my case, I came to get a few questions answered, and before I knew it I was tearing apart vb and looking through all the code and now I'm a permanent visitor here and on vb.com (although only negativity on that site, it's all been posted before)

Also, thanks Lynne, I can't tell you how many times I have searched for something and found one of your posts as the answer. You are a goldmine of info.

I'm addicted too. I didn't want to post at all. Just wanted to observe but the more I learn the more I want to help people on my site have a better user experience.

Unfortunately, a lot of the mods here are repetitive and some even seem redundant. You could want something simple that would look like it should be easily done but you won't find it anywhere on the site or even google.

You could always throw the idea around in the mod suggestion forum, no guarantees but it couldn't hurt to try.

I'm focusing alot on my own site and some paid jobs right now but would be interested in hearing your ideas for future mods.

Alternatively, start reading up on php

I'm more of a vB.com addict than a vB.org addict.
