  • Is vBulletin free for non-profits

    This came up over here. I thought it was NOT free for non-profit organizations. Can you please clarify.

    It is not free anyone, as far as I'm aware. I'm quite certain that someone brought this up before and the staff said even non-profits had to pay.

      Sounds like rubbish to me. I have never heard of any legal way to get vBulletin for free.

        vBulletin is proprietary software and is not free, irrespective of what you intend to use it for. Even those who use it for educational purposes (i.e. colleges & universities) are still required to purchase a license.

          Do you offer discounts for non profit/charity/academic organisations?

          No - we do not offer any discounted prices for non-profit/charity/academic organisations.

            The only way to get a free/reduced price vbulletin from Jelsoft is by saving the life of the CEO. As I would not count on that happening, there are only 3 other ways.
            1. Vbulletin has a referral program. You advertise vbulletin, and you get a % of the profits that they make from your referrals.
            2. You could purchase a used vbulletin license from someone who may give you a favorable rate because you are non-profit.
            3. You could look for someone to sponsor your forum.

              Do you actually read threads before you post in them? I do NOT want a free vBulletin. I am just trying to clear up a misconeption about a comment in another forum about vB being free for non-profits

                This is a forum, not a chat room or instant messaging system. Therefore, you shouldn't be offended by comments like that, as it could be useful for someone else. After all, you implied that you posted this for the benefit of someone else, and not yourself.

                  And I clarified it for you.

                        I bought an owned license, and have renewed 2/3 times now..... I think I've lost count. Honestly, I don't have that much money, but vBulletin was worth every penny.

                        If I spend much more time browsing these forums, I could be subjected to: 1. Burnt retinas, 2. Angry customers, 3. Lack of moderation, 4. Arguments.
                        This used to be a nice place; what the hell's gone wrong?

                          Any may I just say that the color scheme for unregistered users at WebTalkForums.com is rather obnoxious? LOL They have a long way to go to catch up with WebHostingTalk.com.

                            Has anyone thought that this was a bait question ? ..to get views to that link ?
                            Well, I do - but then I'm cynical.

                            Whatever.....
