    Sorry to be a dick but this was already posted:

    http://www.vbteam.info/vb-3-7-x-addons-template-modifications/18912-vbulletin-variables-list.html

    I wouldn't worry about this credit, he scraped it from vb.org or someplace like that... He's really good at taking credit for other people's work... LOL

    BTW, I am pretty sure these are all "internal" vBulletin variables that only work inside vBulletin. They have another set that I haven't see published for using in external PHP scripts etc.
