Why haven't you released any hacks here?

Believe it or not, many people will have the same answer. So if you're looking for the source of the problem, look no further than yourself.

I would suggest that it is mostly because of posts like this. When you are a coder, it's one thing to share your code with others who give back to you; but when a huge population of people have nothing to offer and need constant hand holding to install even the most simple of mods, well, it's get old real quick.

vB.org was active when there was a strong community of developers feeding off of each other; now it's a huge portal for people wanting to update their software with "free" stuff and then demanding support because they don't have a clue or are unwilling to spend even a few minutes trying to figure out their own problem.

After a while even the most die hard of coders gives up and just codes for themselves thinking "why bother".

vB.org actually has an equally as strong (if not stronger) community of developers, it's just that the "Average Joe" has come into mix.

You have to understand that not all coders will update their modification up to date. That's why it doesn't seem we're active. However, we're more active than those boards you have mention.

I have to agree with MPDev. Now...I am not a coder (even though it says I am in my postbit). I have released 1 MOD. I needed it on my site, and I am too cheap (poor) to pay someone to do it.

Before I started using vB, I had no knowledge of PHP at all. Through working with it, and playing with the code, I have taught myself a little bit about it. It's not that hard to get the basics.

Instead of complaining about not getting everything you want FOR FREE, why don't you try to do for yourself???? I have asked for support from MOD authors in the past (and probably still will), but before I go to the thread and ask, I at least look a the code and try to figure it out for myself.

Just my 2 cents.

I wish to complain that the posts saying vb.org isn't as good as it used to be, aren't as good as they used to be!

Go to the mods you like and hit that "Support Developer" button. With enough people doing that the people that can code good mods might feel a little more motivated to do so. But if you never write any mods, or donate to any authors, I really don't think you can complain that you're not getting enough "free stuff".

I feel the same way. Just gets really annoying when someone comes into one of my threads and demands support. I had one guy uninstall a hack after asking for help. He waited 10 mins for an answer expecting me to come. After the 10 mins he made a new post and said "Uninstalled". That kind of thing really puts me off releasing hacks here.

One thing that everyone is failing to mention. That the coders do have other agenda or jobs beside here. And some are full and some is part time. I think that vb is active myself. And we should appreciate the free hacks that is offered , and your dedication that you guys have done for us. Theres is always someone BIT*HING about free stuff. STOP complaining what is offered for free.

that's my .02

There are still some interesting mods, but it seems the more interesting ones tend to end up as paid ones, probably for the reasons everyone has been giving. As the site grows, supporting mods is going to become harder and harder with more and more people looking for support.
