There is always the option to stay with 3.8 and dont pay anything

Since they are changing the license fees to last the life of the version, we should be able to get updates for 3.8 until its end of life, unless they want to have a double standard

after seeing the screenshots of 4.0, Im pretty sure that's what I will be doing.

I'm impressed with vB and I'm glad I've become a customer with you guys. You guys appear to strive for excellence, which is what I love. Yes I just upgraded my license and I'm a little upset I wasted my money since I could have put that $60 dollars towards 4.0.

All I wish as I will be upgrading to 4.0 eventually is to receive that discount since I won't be able to afford it before the date you guys have set. That's my only problem. I believe you guys should be generous enough to give this discount to all customers who have been with you guys for 1+ years. Don't you think that would be fair after I've pumped quite a bit of money in your guys pockets already?

I believe the VB marketing team are promoting VB4 as a new superhero movie (obviously clear looking at their ridiculous homepage graphic), so they expect ppl to line up and pre-order.
Pre-Order within 30'oct - FAIL

So I guess if I upgraded to the 4.0 I'd lose the free vBAdvanced and wouldn't be able to have the Recent threads anymore. Well, that would suck, but sure isn't worth $130 bucks. I guess if that is the case, I'd just stick with 3.8 to.

Plus, I'm thinking a lot of the mods won't work with the new structure, so there goes all of those free mods we could use.

Yeah i have been looking @ IPB for a month now. $25 renewal per 6 months is really attractive.

Dear VB team, please can you upgrade http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/ to your new version 4.

Not having your own forum on the latest version looks like you don't have faith in your own product; it will also enable many of us to judge if we want to upgrade and what version we want to purchase (forum or suite).

Thanking you.

Has anyone from Internet Brands finished business school? Did they even attend?
They seem to screw up every website/product they purchase.

As I said over on vb.com:

I read the leaked stuff a while back and really thought you'd have understood by now exactly where your customers stood, given the outcry at the time and since, but I guess not.

2 weeks to buy based on screenshots is just ludicrous and I especially love the $195 (+) forum fee on every big version update. If that's not a massive incentive for vBulletin to increase the version number far faster, then I have no idea what is. You can deny that as much as you like but your new focus entirely on money and your complete disregard for your (previously excellent) reputation and your customers says everything we need to know.

Oh well, it's been great - I've had a lot of fun with vBulletin over these past nearly 2 years. It's too bad that had to end and with such a blatant money grab too. I'm truly disappointed.


It really is sad that it all ended like this, as I've had a ball with vBulletin, but there's no way I'm paying $200, even every year or two. Not least because of that huge incentive to screw the customer over and the complete disregard they've shown to their loyal customers.
