  • Question about conversion

    Hello,

    I have two Invision Power Board licenses...and I also have a Gallery and Blog installed on them both. I was wondering, could I convert to V-Bulletin for free? I really like Invision Power Board, but V-Bulletin just seems to have something extra.

    -Thanks

    Your gallery, your blogs wont be converted when you move to vbulletin. Vbulletin is not free, it costs 180 dollars for the owned license and 100 dollars for the leased license. You can obviously convert to vbulletin for free once you buy the licenses.

      I understand that, and Invision Power Board wasn't free either. It was 149.99 per license plus extra for the blog and gallery. I don't understand why I can't convert, when I have already paid the same amount.

        IPB and vBulletin are owned by different companies. You can't expect to pay one company for their products and then ask another company who received no money at all whatsoever from your first payment to IPB for a free copy of their product. It makes no sense...

          I know it sounds crazy, but I don't want to have to pay 200 more ****ing dollars, that I don't really have.

            No need to swear.

            I am sure the answer to your question will be no.

              Either pay and get vBulletin or don't pay and don't get it. Simple.

                But I want V-Bulletin,

                I want it to improve my community, and I just don't want to pay 200 dollars.

                  Also,

                  I'm sure you can convert to Invision Power Board from V-Bulletin for free.

                    You can, but I don't believe you can convert the gallery and blog.

                      Tough luck.

                        Invision Power Board doesn't offer that...I don't think.

                          If you think about it would Invision offer such a service if they knew that you were switching to their competitor?

                            I'm pretty sure, they would be delighted to offer a service. Never-mind I'll stick to Invision Power Board.

                              I want a Ferrari, but I don't want to pay for it as I already own a car... What you're saying just doesn't make any sense.
