  • Purchasing decision?

    I Currently run an Ikonboard 3.1.2a MySQL forum with over 45000 posts and 1500 members. I am considering switching to Vb at several users suggestions but would like to ask
    1) Is there a working converter for Ikonboard 3.1.2a (SQL) to Vb
    2) What actualy benefits are there in switching to Vb (the main one that has been mentioned on my forum is 'the arcade' feature (but I can't see any arcade feature on here?, am I missing something obvious)
    3) If I purchase a 'lifetime' licence do I have to renew it every year to remain legal?
    4) Is there anysort of 'trial' version available (maybe a 30 day demo or similar) that I can try and see if everything works correctly before laying out $160?
    5) Has Vb the same sort of hack support available as Ikonboard?
    6) Can you offer any incentive for a non-profit, charitable organisation?

    Sorry if these questions has been answered elsewhere, but doing a search brings up so many conflicting facts and figures that I wished to ask all my questions in one place.

    Many Thanks

      nuno,


      thanks for a very quick and accurate reply.

      I have 1 further question

      When I purchase the software is there any way I can run what would appear to be two seperate forums on the same database/licence combination?, they would be hosted via two domains that point to the same server, but I would like one forum to know nothing about the other?

      I hope this makes sense to you.

      Regards

          nuno, thanks again for the quick and accurate reply to my query, I think that is all my questions answered, all I need to do now is to get the $160 authorised by the committee .

          Many thanks
