    Who created WHT ?

    Can you give me reference of who created WHT and what would be the approximate expenses for modifying vbulletin to have similar functionality ?

    I wish to add some more functionality customized to my area of expertise and launch it

    WHT is currently owned by iNET Interactive. It was originally created several years ago by an individual, but it's changed hands (and looks) since then. Our version of vBulletin is heavily customized, as you can tell.

    Although vBulletin is the core on which we run, we (iNET) employs full-time coders, programmers, and graphic designers who have made many functional and visual enhancements.

    thanks for that piece of information, though my purpose of asking here is to know of a company who will be able to work with me in providing similar forum functionality to my members

    That would probably depend on which "similar forum functionality" you're interested in supplying.

    So MattF must be the first ever member?
    He joined in Nov 2000 and is from the UK.

    Why isn't he apart of the team or why doesn't he have a special badge or something under his username?

    hmmm I wonder who the second member is.

    Edit: Also I notice he is no longer active.

    Any chance of that BETA member profile module being released to public?

    We've actually considered that, but then the world would see just how ugly my code is and I am too fragile for that type of scrutiny

    Seriously though, a release to the community is a definite possibility if we can package up the code in an easily distributable manner. In it's current form the enhanced profiles rely on a lot of custom code that has been inserted in to our copy of vB over the years, so it is useless to other forums.

    WHT always has me, and I'm unique.

    I though WHT was started by RackShack and later sold to iNET.

    How about listing all unique features that you find on WHT but are not present in the vbulletin code.

    What makes WHT unique and makes it stand out ? . Profile (beta) being one ...
