  • How long will bulletin be alive?

    When do u predict bulletin will die and wont be available and wont work anymore? Somebody said 5 years but i think more...what do u think?!

    Thats like asking Microsoft, or the donut shop down the road "When do you plan to close shop?"

    No one can give you a realistic anwser.

    A fire could burn the shop down tomorrow.

        I'm sure vBulletin will be around for as long as it's profitable.

            Well, that prediction would need a load of market research. My belief is as long as people use the internet there will be forums. As long as there are forums, there will be forum software. As long as there is the need for forum software and the VB team stays innovative as they have always been Vbulletin will live .

              Who in the world would create a company & predict it's end?

              I mean I am sure ole Ronald McDonald plans to sell burgers forever.

              Steve is the McDonal's of the forum empire. (Bill winks at Steve, lol)

                vBulletin will probably be around for a long time.

                  Not when you look at how many posts this dude is generating.

                  On many forums, asking "when is this website going to die?" is grounds for a timeout for spreading F.U.D. (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt -- unsubstantiated fear/concern/b.s. about a company).

                    Jelsoft really should make a jokes forum for threads like these.

                      The company just celebrated its 5 year anniversary and we're just starting, there are no plans to slow down or cut down, or even close. Nobody has to worry.

                      As you're a customer now, thread moved to chit chat forum.

                          IMO, Jelsoft and vBulletin will be around for as long as Jelsoft can continue to work on it. If Jelsoft takes the time to take up new technologies and keep vB updated, then it won't die. MySQL and PHP could both "die" tomorrow which could spell the end of vBulletin. But if Jelsoft takes the time to adapt vBulletin to other technologies then vBulletin can never really die...

                              If PHP were to die then that would mean it would have been supplanted by a better technology. I'm sure we would have been working on converting vBulletin to the newer technology for awhile at that point.
