Ah .. I was wondering when the first thread about this would come up.

Before the thread gets locked - I think its too soon to even think about upgrading vb.org. However there are chances that vb.com could upgrade to vB5 before December end.

As it looks now with this version 3.6.12, this is how it will always be, vb org will never upgrade.

Does this site have the functionality that we need to share modifications and ask for help right now? I'd say it does and so, as Paul stated, it isn't high on any priority list right now to upgrade.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.
W3Schools -

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Absolutely it does. And this speaks boldly on both the quality of the vB 3.x script and the MAJOR failure of the vB 4.x and current 5.x beta demo scripts...

i think Paul resume pretty well what is supposed to be on the priority list of every admin right now...

if your site is on production, if it works, keep it that way... if your site is not up now and you make plans, evaluate the changes with 5.0 .... if you dream of the best solution, unplug your computer and go in the park to chat with your neighbours, this is the best solution!

No need for it to. I doubt vB5 offers anything useful for sharing modifications. Everything would have to be rewritten here, and honestly they should devote any spare time to making vB5 better faster.

vBulletin 5 Connect makes significant advances in the capabilities of online community websites, and is clearly the premier platform on which to build such sites.
Of course vb.org it will be upgraded soon, as has been said, v5 is clearly the premier platform.

However I personally may just wait a year or two.

Nonsense, the site would run perfectly well on vB4.

The only reason it isnt is exactly the same reason its not even on 3.7 or 3.8 - the amount of time it would take to update all the plugins, templates & customisations.

Its quite invloved just to do it for 3.8, its a huge amount of work for 4.2.

As i said in a previous thread with exactly the same title only citing vb4, it works perfect for the type of community/niche, upgrading would not add any value or function that is needed here - it's not broke so don't try and fix it!
