    All I wanted to do was to make a suggestion


    I tried emailing vBulletin suggestions for their product.

    I was told I had to come to this forum, then I was told I had to register, and then I tried posting my message in the suggestion thread only to be told that I am not allowed to do so.

    Guys, businesses traditionally welcome customer/market feedback .

    Market feedback allows businesses to find out what people are willing to buy. Businesses can then adapt their product with this information so that they can sell more of their product and make more money.

    Your market cannot give you this feedback if you lock them out of the places where they have to give it you or if you make them go through hoops to give it to you.

    That is a fairly boiler plate piece of business knowledge.

    No offense. I still like your product. Good luck

    Was it a person or an automated message telling you you can't post?

    Because in any vB2/3 forum, you can't post unless you own the product. Chit Chat, Presales, and here I think are the main places unlicensed users can post in.

      You can post here obviously, correct? What's your suggestion?

        I too have the same problem to post the suggestion. So I use this thread. I would like to suggest to add mechanism so that user can not update email/password. It should be OK that we, administrator, can disable the email/password update by user. This will make it flexible (and friendly) when we would like integrate vBulletin into our own system (in which control the email/password update). In other words, vBulletin should allow us to diable email/password update easily.

          Good suggestion and one of the things that vBulletin would need to add if they are going to allow integration with other scripts and other login systems.
