    FWIW, this has been happening for years with 3.x as well. Some language packs seem to mess up the master phrases.

    3.8 bug = the "euro" sign or something like that doesn't display right on RSS feeds...

    Just examples but while 3.8 might have some remaining bugs, it doesn't compare to 4.x.

    I've been running 3.8 since it was ever out.

    Go, take a squint back at the bug tracker and you will see there were many bugs which needed addressing and fixing, but they didn't deem it timeworthy because they were under the cosh with vB 4.
    That's as maybe, but they didn't fix all the 4.x ones either.

    The point is, either 3.8 had loads of bugs that were never fixed, or it didn't. The problem I have is that when people want to bash the company, they say it did. But then in other threads the same people say how wonderful 3.8 was because it had no bugs whilst vB4 is full of them. And my point is, they can't have it both ways.

    Were there?

    People keep saying on the one hand 4.x is rubbish because 3.8 is bug free, but now apparently there are so many bugs in 3.8 that we needed loads of maintenance releases. Which it it?

    As far as I can see very little has cropped up in 3.8 in the last 18 months or so, I should know as I was running it until Dec 26th when I changed to vB4.

    Whilst I'd be the first to agree that IB has not done a wonderful job on vBulletin since Kier left, the criticisms of them are sometimes inconsistent and unrealistic.

    It is still available for a few weeks yet.

    The amount of bugs fixes in 3.8.5/3.8.6/3.8.7 were the amount of bug fixes we use to get in previous maintenance releases when the old developers were around.

    It doesn't have to be that way. VB could still have some serious discussions about this issue and change course a bit and not make themselves redundant as they say in the UK. Or, they can keep going down this path to failure. I'm an optimist. We don't know what will happen. There's always a chance for course corrections.

    If you have told me that some months ago, I wouldn't believe you. But after looking closer at XenForo I must say they really have something good going at xenforo.com. And they haven't even passed the v1.0.0 milestone. The frequency in which they roll out new versions and the quality already seen, well, those two reasons alone should make IB wonder what has been done wrong with vBulletin.

    IB did a right dismal job continuing support for 3.8 all that time. You guys flopped miserably. Imagine how many releases we would've had by now if they had stuck with the original schedule with one maintenace release every 2 months.

    My time to rant

    Dear vBulletin,

    Honestly, back in December when we decided to hop over a paid forum service, we had certain expectations. We surely heard about vBulletin before and I knew those using it,...
