Project Description

I recently applied a security patch to my forum and now it is very buggy and won't allow users to post!

Here is the error I get sent when somebody tries to post:


Database error in vBulletin [url removed, login to view]:

Invalid SQL:
INSERT INTO freedbforum_thread
(prefixid, postusername, postuserid, title, iconid, visible, forumid, dateline, open, attach, lastpost, lastposter, lastposterid, replycount, postercount, hiddencount, deletedcount, keywords)

I need an expert to

1. fix the bugs and make it stable and allow users to post freely again.

2. Setup and show me how to add "user badges" and allow administrators to give custom badges to users
(can explain more if that doesn't make sense).

Please put "APPLES" in your bid header so I know you have read and understood what I need.

I am looking for an expert with good track record for dealing with vbulletin. No new people.
