Just needs the relevant field changing from MEDIUMINT unsigned to INT unsigned. The OP has reached the limit for unsigned values in a MEDIUMINT field

No, it needs a variety of changes beyond that, not just that, but also the fact that you're actively encouraging people who flout the SMF licence requirements and potentially code changes for a few of them as well.
It's no different from what it would be if they'd asked on Stack Overflow

I have a policy of a digital form of “do no harm”, though.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

we have offered you assistance MANY times in putting the copyright back. you just need to provide us with your index.template.php file and we will fix it. you have never provided the file so we cannot fix it for you.

if you can provide it we can assist you further.

that file is required to make your forum run. if you cannot access it on your server then we cannot help you fix your issue as you would need access to your files to fix the issue anyway.

that does not help us fix your issue. you need access to your forums files on the server. if you cannot provide us with your index.template.php file then this topic will be locked as we will not provide you further support due to the missing copyright.

Honestly, that's not our problem. If you can close the website, you have access to the files, therefore you have the ability to solve this.

Your english skills seem to be very limited. Is there any other language you speak? You could try the support board of that language.

So you say it is there, but it isn't there?

He's arguing that the copyright is his because it's his site. This isn't a new debate.

Do you understand that everybody here is volunteering their help?
Do you also understand that we will only help you on the condition that you put the SMF copyright footer back in your forum?
If you do, restoring the copyright footer should be your top priority.

Do you have problems with your top priority?

To summarize

- The OP has a "problem", from a limitation in SMF that normally pretty much no one would ever hit...
- The problem could probably be circumvented, but requires (among other things) access to edit the files
- We require the SMF copyright notice to be reinstated before we help at all
- The OP says they have no access to the files anymore
- No access to the files means we are unable to help even if we wanted to

-> This is going nowhere, and I am almost ready to just lock this topic.
