Oh ok
I'll post a staff presence here, despite the fact that Nathan and Ben covered it perfectly.

Firstly, as mentioned; the credits are required on every page (we recommend the footer for this reason). Therefore, your credits page would not meet the official eligibility policy of our software. HOWEVER we are open source software, and by the very nature of opensource, you can use the software without credits with little to no legal implications. 

That said, as our credits state:
Quote:MyBB is free software developed and maintained by a volunteer community.
It would be much appreciated by the MyBB Group if you left the full copyright and "powered by" notice intact,
to show your support for MyBB.  If you choose to remove or modify the copyright below,
you may be refused support on the MyBB Community Forums.

This is free software, support us and we'll support you.

I think the main thing here is:

Quote:This is free software, support us and we'll support you.
Also, since there are allegations of hacks and spam in this thread, I will be closing it before it ends up way off the rails with allegations being thrown about left right and centre. If anyone has any issues, they can open a thread here: https://community.mybb.com/forum-135.html as Ben so correctly said.
