    But that depends if your a seller. If you are it does seem to have just about every sales option you could wish for to run a serious online site selling wares.
    Actually, Nexus is an independant product, not an actuall add-on for IPB. I'm one of the testers for it.

    It's actually a pretty useful product if you're a web host, or sell products (like forums skins, downloadavle software, etc.) and in the future (v1.1) it will be able to handle physical products as well (say, t-shirts and mugs). Overall, it's a very nice product.

    It will support forum registration through Nexus as well, not just for IPB; you can write modules for it so people can be automatically registered in the forum such as vB if you code it right.

    The uses I'm thinking are for selling something. I was thinking I could set up a customer support forum, customer support/billing w/ Nexus, a company blog and a site with their CMS... that's pretty compelling.

    Makes me wish I had a company right now just to play with the toys

I would rather have lifetime upgrades than lifetime support because after the first year you learn the software really well and are able to fix problems yourself.
    Me too.

    (note to Zach: this expressing my personal opinion on what *I* prefer, not my perception as to a customer base.)

    As far as the thread topic, I love the integration of everything. They have some very compelling features outside of the forum. This Nexus thing they're talking about looks particularly interesting. This is the first I've seen of it, but if it will fit my future needs I'll definitely be picking up a few licenses with a few add-ons. Kudos to IPS for putting together one heck of a great package, probably their greatest strength right now.

    You'd be surpised that more people require support in compared to the people who want download access. Many people refuse to upgrade for whatever reason for ages but require support for their version for as long as they refuse to upgrade.

    If only, not all of us are php whiz kids unfortunately and never will be.

    Its about the same size as were it says "Senior Member" below my name.
    The font size looks exactly the same to me... Maybe just slightly smaller. But it's not like that can't be changed...

    I'm sure they're working on it though; it's under the "Under Consideration" forum. Sure, they don't really use it because they've mentioned some other system they use, but I see it as hope.

    I don't see why they couldn't do something similar: Use postids when you add quotes, and then make them show when you click "Post Reply" or some other similar system.

    Yes, just JS AFAIK. It just enters some post ID's into a cookie which is read by PHP on a reply page.

    I think one of the biggest reasons vB doesnt have it by default is that it would totally break the threaded/hybrid views. Though I don't use them at all, so I'd still want it

    Not really worth giving up my vB for, but it's a good AJAX feature that should be integrated into vBulletin.
    Is it AJAX? I thought it was JavaScript.
