You will get no support when you remove the copyright.

Your heart is in the right place, but you forget that if you can add that code (or any other code) then any other admin can remove it.

If you are suggesting that MyBB somehow include that functionality and that might not be a terrible idea because a lot of people don't want to make core edits. The thing is, people that want to remove the 'powered by' information are generally willing to stoop to any level to do it.

The thing is, MyBB is open source software. They have every right to remove the notice if they want to; it's not illegal. Users can modify MyBB in any way they want, redistribute it, etc. We just appreciate the link back, and it's really our only price for support.

The Hard working guys who give u such a nice software for free deserve atleast one linkback...
If you are annoyed of each page Powered by Notice, then i'll suggest you to add additional Note like In Our Partner section or anything like that, notifying your user that "Mybb is a free and opensource Script. They can use aswell."
And i think MyBB team will also support you Smile Smile
