1. NEVER upgrade without a backup
2. NEVER upgrade without doing a test site first, especially with a major new release
3. See point 1
4. vB said it was a Beta release in many places
5. See point 1

It reminds me of IPB 3.0. Not liking it!

Why rush to buy, wait and see proof of a stable version

I was under the mistaken impression that one must never upgrade without a backup. Thanks for making it so amply clear to us.

I also will be buying it as soon as I have spare cash but won't be upgrading my existing forum. As said it'll annoy the current users as its too different and my forum has too many mods.

Instead I'm going to use it to create a new website based on my current one but for a new geographic area. That way what they don't know they're missing won't hurt them and it gives me a chance to test mods when they appear before the possible day in the very distant future when I do upgrade.

I can't wait to get my hands on v5 but know it's going to be a nightmare!

How about styling it? Shouldn't be that hard with the new system.

I purchased the upgrade yesterday and also got the $25 coupon so the total was $183 USD. I'm still at 4.2 and will stay there till things get ironed out. Looks very promising .

No offense but the example posted on here looks a complete mess. I have been a forum admin, like many, since 1995 and one I do know is that users like to have simplicity and to be able to find what they are looking for quickly and easily. That is even more the case now.

The examples I have seen look like a confused mass of content with no context. I don't know if it's the examples I have seen but kicking off with an activity stream makes no sense. As a user it's not clear at all.

And I'm looking forward to new mods extending vB3 functionality in social networking field. (user walls/activity streams, improved blogging system, commenting system etc.)
