    2. From what I heard, the coding of VB5 is quite messy ( I am not a programmer, so can only go by what I read) and my impression is that to fix the problem of VB5 , basically the entire code need to be re-written, which I do not think is going to happen with patches.
    What did you do in the end?

    You should really start your own thread/ticket, but memcached by itself does nothing.

    I installed a 5.1.2 bulletin from scratch with memcached on a 4 core with 12GB ram and SAS disks using fcgi for php. No add ons or themes or anythings and it is way too slow. So slow, it is not acceptable. I find this very regrettable and it worries me for the future.

    But It's cool to me, since it's still in beta.

    When vBulletin 5 will be at it's final, it'll be a blast.
    I use vBulletin to allow user to discuss about whatever they want (but many of them simply don't..), and to update information and any add-ons I made to my product, and to handle subscription and obtain user data.

    If they said vBulletin 5.1.0 should get out this year, then it should be released in like 2>? months?
    Keep drinking the kool-aid

    Constant work is being done on vB 5.1, so this is very likely (though not guaranteed).

    As for the slowness: I don't find vB5 that slow anymore, especially compared to the very early versions. In fact, I can browse this forum quite fast. I agree though, that it could still need some improvements.

    Doesn't bother them, you already paid for your vb5, they don't care what you do now. Its sad.....

    I hate trashing vb, it saddens me and I'm sure I'm not alone on this either, reading so much negativity about a product we've all invested in. But, I am disbelieving this will ever amount to much here. What is wrong with the designers here. Vb5 is so unwelcoming. I'm most likely migrating over to xenForo shortly. PLEASE, convince me not to do this?

    Never could I imagine how they fell and the fact that I just found out half of the developers I knew have left.....
    All the developers (at least the original group) have left. Not one original vBulletin 2.x or 3.x developer is around here.
