Heyo! One of my friends who's not all that into nulls paid for an actual legal license of IPB (Nasty right?) but he's not willing to shell out the extra money on top of the ~$300 on applications and themes and he's wondering if IPB can see if you're using nulled applications and themes?

Do You accidentally think they can't or don't know?
The other question is whether they want to know or see. This is the question.
And the answer is - they can see, if they want to see.

Basically what Neptunus said, if they want to find it, they can.

Apps and Themes are 3rd party developed, not developed by IPB.  Some developers can make it so their apps don't work on nulled installations, but this isn't always the case.

You can used IPB nulled and and apps and themes found on Warez sites and still be ok as long as you're not telling everyone your board is nulled and you got the apps somewhere else. There's no way anyone can tell something is nulled or from somewhere else unless they go directly in the Admin CP.

You can use a Licensed IPB and use apps/themes that are in sites like this one.
