Almost as strange as posting an end of life for one of their products in a FAQ and not an announcement.

Even on my small forum when I ran into a big problem, I created a static page and directed members to another one of my sites, created a special hidden section where only those with the link could either discuss or read updates on my progress.

It would have taken less effort for Ray to post here than to create a new login elsewhere.
I understand the need to reply, but if he replied here others would just direct people to vb.org to read his comments. If he is going to defend vB on every media outlet, then they better hire a lot more people.

I feel there are a lot of knee-jerk reactions by IB.

Why not run the upgrade on a duplicate copy of the board and leave the original in tact so people can use it?

Then when all goes well, just swap the folder names and go live with the upgraded version.

Wonders who will be next in charge of VB. Should we say good bye to him here or should we go to a third party forum to wish him well in all his future endeavors?

Yup, thats what I do..

Create a 2nd board and upgrade.
I dunno.. They have their reasons I guess...

I like the source code of the maintenance page..

<!-- Hey, I see you snooping in the code. Here is something smart - Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it. Team Skunkworks. -->

Did anyone notice the URL changes?

Guess we need to follow twitter. You won't read about it here first.
vb.org/vb.com is just not as cool as twitter.

That's how it displays if the CSS doesn't load, that's all. Nothing to be concerned about.
