OMG it's been ages since I logged in and posted over here.

I'd like to add my name to the list of people thanking Paul M, Lynne, BirdOPrey5, MarkFL, Dismounted, and Princeton for their wonderful service over the years. It's inconceivable to me how IB could let this happen. The loss to the community is nothing short of catastrophic.

It's so very sad that the corporations that provide forum software just don't seem to understand the notion of community anymore. Are they greedy? Stupid? Evil? I really don't know - they are people doing a job and I assume they are doing it the way they think (or are told) they're supposed to. But they just don't understand the nature of communities the way they used to back in the day, and the way they run their own forums is just the most visible sign.

And I don't just mean IB - none of them are the same as they used to be anymore. Don't they get it? It ain't just code! It's the people who use the code too!

At any rate, I'm glad I don't have to go away frowning, because most if not all of the names I listed aren't gone from the internet - they're just gone from here. They can be found elsewhere including on my little patch of the net. So I can end this post with a smile.

I will not be closing this thread, the way I see it is, it should stay open for everyone to be able to give thanks at this point in time, if I must delete every other post then so be it but lets not go that route. I've deleted the posts mentioning Xenforo since they took place after my post from yesterday asking for this thread to remain open for praise if anything! Please use the rest of this thread to thank those who stepped down, there should be no further discussion of the why's and why not's, that time has passed and if you're running fashionably late then just accept it, give praise and lets move on, thanks for you understanding in this matter.

To those who's post were deleted, like Sparta... we Salute you! Nothing was terribly bad just off topic as you've now surmised .

Unhappy

damn bad news. As cellarius said years ago:
I'm leaving vB, since IB choose to go the banana-way yet again.

Best wishes to the team and many many thanks to all.

Would not be able to set up your own vb support site?
Lynne, BirdOPrey5, MarkFL, Princeton and Paul ......

Its already been logged to Jira but as you're guessing as I'm typing Paul was over that so it will have to wait until someone else is re-assigned to the vb.org Jira.

And here I was thinking a site administrator could just go into the AdminCP and edit the proper page. How silly of me...

The logged JIRA was marked resolved. I petitioned for it to be reopened.

Sooo, there's not only an over-bureaucratic procedure to be followed - it does not even work

Bunny! All Hands Abandon Ship (thanks for all the fish)

I have had no reason to log into here for quite awhile now having successfully converted all my remaining sites away from vBulletin and to either WoltLab Burning Board or Invision Power Board. However, I do still remember using vBulletin back in the day and how the staff here usually did a wonderful job at keeping things usually civil.

Thank you all for the good that you did and I'm sorry your hard work and tireless, if not thankless effort, has continued to be underappreciated by your Internet Brand overlords. -- It was not unnoticed by those of us here who did use this community and its resources. Thank you for your time and service to the cause!

Internet Brands Inc, who owns vBulletin, really should not have entered into the business of forum software. Their continued effort of disrespecting and ignoring their customer base, along with their core developers and staff has been a continuing trend, as well as proof of that fact. I suspect one day the only sites using vBulletin with be Internet Brand's own sites.

With this all said, I leave you with the same song they played as The Titanic sank, "Nearer My God To Thee"

Cheers, everyone!

A ticket regarding this situation? If so I would not expect a reply back, the decision has already been made and since all staff on the list have been demoted as of the 12th, nothing else can be done at this point in time. I just wanted you to know that, so if the ticket does go unanswered you would understand why respectively i.e. its like the rule on here, do not open a new thread to question staff decisions, same sort of situation here per say .

Despite my previous comment, I've decided to close this thread.

Please pay homage/tribute to those that have left in the new thread.
