    After the early vBulletin 4 backlash, I really can't understand how IB dares releasing such a subpar product as vBulletin 5 Connect. I've always been a big supporter of vBulletin and I believe the 4.2 version is a good product, but this is inexcusable.

    Unless there's a major turnaround with vB Connect, not only I will not be upgrading my forum, but I may look into other alternatives...

    Yeah, that seems to be the features for vb5 you must use for vb5 advertising. Ha ha, I we knew that in 2002

    vBulletin 4 was pre-sold with the understanding that beta glitches would be worked out before launch. That didn't turn out to be true. So... you can understand if people are skeptical about giving vBulletin 5 the benefit of the doubt.

    Seems to me they've made the same mistake with VB5, as they did with VBCMS, they tried to reinvent it and have failed rather epically.

    Given that the same team who gave us the CMS are on VB5, I guess it's of no surprise.

    The more I used the demo, the more I disliked it.

    I did try it, but with the major speed issues and..weird design of the software, it's no longer a product I could or would use, either as a user, or admin.

    And I've used Vbulletin exclusively since..well, 2002.

    I mean I waited for 2 years to upgrade our forums from 3.8 to 4.2, but I know we won't be upgrading to 5 when the 4 series becomes end of life.

    VB5 is like, Facebook 0.1 Alpha.

    Do you still only get 1 installation total or if I purchase VB5 would I be able to install 5 on a site and then 4 on another site?

    It is true that it his opinion, and we are all entitled to our own opinions. But that same opinion is shared by the vast majority of vb owners I believe. Throughout the internet, on boards discussing the issue of running communities or vb itself, vb3.8 seems to be the most popular and people seem to think it is by far, the best (in terms of quality and useful features) version of vb. I'd wager that if you took a poll here w/i this very community, you'd find the same results. vb3.8 just had so many things that were done right.
