    This is how I managed to run 4.2.0 live while still in beta. Test, test, test. Once you're happy, go live.

    There's only so much companies can do to protect customers from themselves.
    Sure you are right. But a good company has to consider all the "stupid" customers who upgrade the board once they'll see a new version coming out.
    If you watch at the product presentation on https://www.vbulletin.com/ it gives the impression of a stable and usable product.
    Social - Engaging - Easy - Robust
    Launch site in as little as 15 min.
    At the core of vBulletin is the forum software. This software powers many of the largest social sites on the web. Over 100,000 sites are built on vBulletin, including:

    You can say what you want Mark, it was just a stupid decision to sell this script to the public...

    Some people never learn. I suppose they blame that on vBulletin too?

    Silly people LOL

    I have no complaint except (1)the speed and the bugs, (2)The top right user pop up menu still ugly one compare to your competitor xenforo and IPB .
    (3)you should test all the settings in vbulletin options, (4)get rid old main css that is meant for vb3. (5)And test inside out new style, editing style, (6)importing old vb4 style and generate vb5 style from it like the stylevar value mapping previously done for vb3 to vb4.

    I think vB5 has the potential. I like new technology. The front end editing, is very nice.

    I'm not feeling the love at all. It is slow and damn ugly. Only thing that would get me past this is if there were addon mods like keyword autolinks, reviews, CMS, As is. Hard to imagine this winning my crowd.

    No,there is no conspiracy.

    See the same crowd in cloths.
    It's exciting to think what is under the cloths.

    They take them off.
    How disappointing to see the naked truth...

    What about vB5?
    It was exciting to think about its features until its arrival.
    It's naked now...
