vb5 is a disappointment

I was a heavy vb3 user back in the day, and recently I decided to try my hand at another internet forum, so yesterday I made the choice of buying vBulletin based on my past experiences. I went to install the software and was hit in the face with a plethora of bugs and issues that seem to be stupid mistakes on the part of the vBulletin developers that should have been caught long ago. For instance, when installing smilies I was encountered with broken images only to discover that the smilies are not in the location that vbulletin expected them to be in - they were in the core/images directory, when vbulletin by default thought they should be located in the /images folder. Also attached is a screenshot from the smilies install area, note the last two lines in the "info" about installing new smilies, apparently smilies change their name from smiley.png to smilie.png

I have submitted a request for a refund, this software is useless.

With a vB5 license, you have access to vB4 which is, in my opinion the best vBulletin version because it's more customizable and its design is awesome.

I love VB 5 personally, but the mods are very limited and I need many of the mods I bought on Vb4, and since I can't afford to pay for the upgrade requested, I'll have to stick with vB 3 or vB 4 for now.

They stopped access to older versions with new licenses ages ago.

It's garbage compared to just about every other modern forum software out there.

There are some good coders here but they keep their codes to themselves.

Very few coders share their vB5 mods and those who share their mods are criticized by the same coders who don't share their mods. So why would they keep sharing?

Suggestion: make paid Pro mods like on Xenforo and free basic mods..

If the goal is to raise money they make the vbulletin 4 license pay again but they cannot discontinue their best forum. Is committing suicide
