    vbseo.com ... plugin for search engine optimization ..

    Installed on ut2007world.com ...

    go into the forum and click any forum and check out the URL .. it will convert your URL into static ones (/html etc. instead of ?blabl.php&blabla)

    And considering the fact that people are actually making money with their forum it is indeed cheap .. not for me since I use the forum rather for a hobby instead of making money ( some sort of no advert policy :P )

      Heh, I don't need support.
      You say you don't need support now, but what if you do in the future? And Jelsoft doesn't sell an unsupported license, anyway.

        Our software is prices below most of the value of our competitors, and has not changed in the last 5+ years. We can offer you a discount if you require three or more licenses of the same type. But there are no discounts for the current single license purchase; nor do we have one planned.

          My cousin paid more for a college text book then what he paid for a license. It's a bargain compared to other things.

              Wow, you mean college text books...possibly the most overpriced thing in the world...is cheaper than a script?

              That's not much of a bragging point as 99% of text books cost 10 times what they're worth.

                    If you are running a site that yield a return profit, it definitely is. However, if you're running a site just for the betterment of the online community and not drawing a profit its probably priced beyond your budget.

                      I disagree with that argument. I run a Sims fansite for the betterment of my community and the license came out of my own pocket change to buy.

                      If you think this is expensive, I suggest you look at some of the alternative solutions like UBB.threads

                        If you run a forum site, chances are you spend a lot of your own time on it. If your time is worth anything, that's probably your biggest "expense" and it's more than the cost of vBulletin. In the same way, the time you save by having a forum system that runs reliably is also valuable.

                          This is the first forum I've ever had and I love the software and most of all the support.
