    Thank you for your feedback. Since this has all been answered and it's deteriorating quickly, this thread is closed.

    I agree. We dropped vB awhile ago because every time a new version came out it seems our subscription had to be renewed.

    Why don't you go mind your own business? I am providing customer feedback. It really has nothing to do with you. I'm really not interested in your fanboi anal attitude.

    You're not my mother, not my father and have no business talking about my finances. Your opinion means ZIP.

    Why don't you buy one that someone already bought then from a web forum such as http://forums.digitalpoint.com ?

    And I am unsure where you're from, but if you're from anywhere in the United States, Eurozone or UK, you don't have to pay the currency conversion costs. Although I wouldn't have to pay that if Jelsoft had a citibank account that I could do a direct deposit into from my own citibank account.

    Theres no need for the abuse. I realise you probably wasted your money on alcohol, but I prefer to use my extra money for more important things such as influence (especially after the website upgrade).
    I don't drink and never have. I was more interested in hmmm let's see... buying books, Kraft Dinner, and scrounging for rent money perhaps??

    Again, stop your whining. You are getting nowhere.

    That's ok, ill just cancel my account and open a new one with my new credit card (I have two other domain names).

    But I do have to say that it is specifically a silly rule that its not allowed on renewals.

    Also it used to be just 30 days but I made a convincing enough argument to get us to change it to 60 days to give people more time.

    If you can't afford the measly current price, then go the free phpBB route. You are student, so why are you even complaining?? When I was in College, purchasing something like this was not on the plate.

    Inflation? Greed? Sorry, but the only response I can think of is blah blah blah.

    • 6 months support/upgrades
    • 30 days phone support
    • 2 business day ticket response
    • 5 day major version upgrade turnaround
    • Minor version upgrade via easy upgrade pack
    • One active installation + one test installation
    • After 6 months: $25 renewal option to access upgrades and ticket support*
    Wow that sucks, $25 renewal every 6 months, and only 2 day responding ticket time. That is another reason why I prefer vB.

    And we thank you for your feedback.

    However as I pointed out we have never raised a single price and vB is cheaper now than it's ever been. There is not a single commercial competitor I'm aware of that can make that same claim.

    Unfortunately I can't say that we are not going to lower our prices any time soon, nor can we provide a special deal for you that is not available to everyone else. Sorry.
