  • I am really not trying to be negative..

    I have taken some time to look over the VB 5 Connect Demo and I must say that my confidence in this company is severely shaken. Please tell me that what I am seeing is a pre-alpha stage concept and not the final product? Not only is what I see beyond stuck-in-the-mud sluggish, there are fewer features than a 1997 version of common forum software. I really gave this an open minded look and am so bummed out right now. PLEASE PLEASE tell me this is nowhere near finished? PLEASE?!?

          What exactly is wrong.. just saying "it's wrong" doesn't really help the conversation.

              I am really shocked myself. I thought the initial 4.x was bad, but it just got worse. I'll not upgrade after my pre-order experience.

                Loco, there seems to be no features. Half the stuff we are used to using is completely gone. Even the rich text editor only seems to have half the features of vb 3.8.. I cannot tell my clients to consider this product when the past versions had a much larger and richer feature set. I will be a part of the decision making process on what to do with many large forums in the future. This is not even a starter in the conversation. It is like upgrading from Word to Notepad if you get my meaning.

                    $25 discount for loyal licence holders to upgrade is quite insulting.

                        I am not sure why anyone would want to upgrade at this point?

                              vB does list this as Beta 10 (for today - as we've been told by one of the beta testers that daily builds should be coming) it's still a beta and is not meant to be used in a production environment. It's to be used to judge for yourself if you would want to upgrade or pre purchase the product.

                              Now for a Beta... it's really bad. I would call this a pre Alpha built at best. It's not something I would be showing potential new customers or even alpha testers.

                              What has the whole vB dev team been doing?
