      I've also just learned the IPB converge system is available to everyone now with a valid license.

        About communication of developpement Ipb have more a professional attitude as Vbulletin
        In comparaison after one year using vbulletin i find some aspect of communication here very bad, the only info you can have is some promesse in signature of Vbulletin team, but when customer ask question of what's coming up the thread are simply ignored or you just have the right to see Floris whis his magic answer "Our developper has read blablabli blablabla"
        For exemple just look in this forum an make some search about the blog question...
        This is request now about 2 year and what you have ? nothing !

          Well To Be Honest i think that i can help you mate because i have a leased license which means for 1 year of vbulletin and you know i will get another license and i was thinking to get ipb or vb and i asked many forums many of the votes was to vBulletin but to be honest i do like ipb especially the new but when you see the look of the ipb its not like vBulletin the vbulletin is much better with the look and stuff like that and they do have The Best Staff and i know ipb have many mods released and they are good i know this but in my oponion the thing that make vBulletin Better is that the ajax Technology used in the vBulletin its really useful so i did deside to Get A vBulletin Owned License

            There is AJAX in both IPB and vB. And to say that one product looks better than another is not a good selling point, because beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

              Adding to what Quillz says, you could customize both beyond recognition should you desire.

                The reason I bought vBulletin is that I understood the coding. It took me a while but I figured out how to make a new page on my illegal vbulletin board. When I was trying to make a new page for IPB 2.1 I had no idea what to do.

                  I agree about that but the support is just fantastic. Some people dont care when new features are avalible as they are happy with what they have and only upgrade when a new version is out for the sake of it being the "latest".

                  I hope to see in the future the communication improving as its a vital thing in a business like vBulletin. Even if competitors can make something out of hints here and there which used to be given out, at least the customers are happy to know whats going on behind the scenes and whats to come. (All we know is: Some products are being made (no idea which ones). 3.6.5 is in development (bug fixes / tune ups). 4.x.x will be a future version but we have no idea if 3.7.x will come out before that or not.

                  Also vBulletin are quite slow when it comes to releasing new things such as a CMS or w/e but I think the development team know what is going on and have planned it all out for us. I have faith in the small deveopment team here .

                  If you ask me which way to go I say go for vBulletin as they have great support, great community between members that help you and also a fantastic product being developed all the time behind the scenes and also lead to lots of surprises for you.

                  If your a business and like to plan whats going to happen software wise, that may be a problem though as little information is given to what new products / versions will contain etc .

                    I would always go for vBulliten over IPB as i feel vBullitens make you look more proffesional

                      I don't really think that one makes you look more 'professional' over an other. I am simply used to Vbulletin and like the very active modding scene at vbulletin.org.

                      That said, IPB 2.2's new profile system (blogging, friends, etc) really smokes anything Vbulletin has at the moment. I truly hope that the Vbulletin team has something very similar (or better) in the works for a release this year. Even better, I hope they come around and share some news with their paying customers...I hate being completely in the dark here.

                        Agreed .

                          Your all forgetting, all of you are saying IPS removed their support forums, they never removed them, they moved them to IPSBeyond which customers can access via the Client Center.

                            Care to explain why? There are very successful sites that use IPB, phpBB, vB, etc. In fact, many would argue that it's more professional to code your own board script.

                              Exactly. Just because IPS uses a different business model than Jelsoft doesn't make their support any more inferior.

                                It says there that vBulletin doesn't have archives. It does have them, I think.
                                vBulletin 5.0 coming soon... :confused:
