    No I use the "free" version (as in, free to the site owner...end users pay for the actual app).

    vB5 is a beta version. So my expectation of it is that it won't work

    When those of us who bought vB4 when it first came out received it that wasn't sold to us as a beta...

    It seems to me that what vB are doing now is less misleading that what they did with vB4. At least you know with this one that this one is a beta.

    You could probably get a refund through paypal, IF you used a credit card, you'd have to reverse the transaction and explain why to the CC company.

    You made a internet buy.
    With respect, that isn't true at all.

    In any event, here is the VERY FIRST THING on the purchase page:

    Purchase vBulletin 5 Connect or upgrade your current license
    We are in the process of advancing to the latest version of our software, vBulletin 5 Connect. This new software is currently in beta. Your vBulletin Connect license gives you the option of deploying this beta or the previous version, vBulletin 4.2. Regardless, your license will let you upgrade to all future releases in the vBulletin 5.x series at no additional cost.

    "Hello,

    As per our license agreement, once the software has been downloaded we're unable to offer a refund.


    All the best,"
    it makes perfectly sense instead,
    next time look at the comments and try the demo and see if you like it first before giving 'blind trust' in just a name/brand, thinking you're making the last deal on earth...
    let that be a lesson for you, and enjoy your vb5! maybe someday will reach its quality stage, the problem is how much you have to wait

    they will finish the work already started "vb4.2.1" until the " 4.9.9 alpha3.8.7 béta10".

    But for the last update will buy "VB5" because it provide the "vb4 final"

    Well the development of VB3.8 was not over either by the time VB4 just came out, but since then we only had minor upgrades from VB3.8.4 to 3.8.7(since VB3's development cycle is over now, I am guessing we aint getting vb3.8.8 or 3.9 after all). I guess there may be a few more minor releases for VB4.2, will be surprised if they actually develop on VB4.3 and even 4.4.

    I like the look of IPB. It's the underlying coding that I am not convinced with. Clean coding and optimization are two important aspects for many long-term forum owners here... I am worried that these are not necessarily the two main features of the current vB 5 beta (although I cannot say much about the PHP coding as I haven't seen the sources; the visible HTML parts are not pretty though).

    Anyone else using vb5 right now? Is it that bad? Are there any live sites up where we can actually see the damn thing in action?

    Research again, xenforo and ipb have both good products and there I see a future. vb is kinda dead. Look at all the comment from today. If you find 1 positive feedback in 100 posts about vb5, I really would be suprised.

    Payed with Paypal and I will probably ask for a refund.
    Paypal don't refund on non-physical items.

    They have to be going broke. This is too obvious. I have no faith in this company anymore.

    But he bought already two licenses. I'm sure you can use vB4 for the next 2 years without a problem. After that he can make a new decision.
    Sure. But to switch the forum software that often can destroy a community. See most user want get used woth the page. And goung from phpbb to vb to whatever in less then 2-3 years is extremly annoying from a user perspective. Not to mention about google and your pagerank.
