    Why don't you just wait and see what happens without it getting you so worked up all the time?

    All you and a few others are doing is constantly whinging about all of the problems. Wait and see what IB has to say before making your move.

    Can we get a Mosh Pit here so people can just beat each other up and raise hell without getting threads closed down? I have a feeling that a lot of this testosterone would be burned up if they were just allowed to get it out of their systems.

    No holds barred mosh pit... call it the Octagon... whatever. Duke it out all you want. Split these threads off to the mosh pit when they start going off in this direction rather than closing them, and eventually the combatants will get it out of their system and we can continue with constructive discussion on the topic at hand.

    Now...come on. No need for that. Just admit you were wrong and move on. No need to cause a fuss. If you have a problem, please make a new thread about it. Lets get this back on track;

    How the hell can they expect people to ALPHA test or even BETA test their products without telling them how much its going to cost them?! I'm really starting to regret ever being a VB customer.

    All it would take it one ****ing line from the financial team - something along the lines of;

    "at the moment, we are planning to issue a small 'upgrade' charge"
    or
    "at the moment, we are planning to honor all our contracts with our existing customers"

    its not ****ing hard it is?! Obviously it is. Seriously....this is horse crap.

    Are you an idiot? Did you not realize that I was answering somebody's question?

    This thread is shot and is probably not far from being closed, so there isn't a point in continuing to ask the same questions and make the same statements over-and-over.

So it's all-or-nothing in regards to the add-ons.

    Then what's the big issue, for all you/I/we know they're just charging extra for the CMS part.

    What I do know now, though, is not to spend any money on third-party modifications. No matter how promising they seem, I always get screwed over.
    Agreed. I've spent a lot on 3rd party addons. Then a year later the company vanishes with everyone's money. It's even worse if the script is ioncubed, because not only can you not modify it to work for updates. But, the script stops to function when the company's server goes offline.

    Anyways. I know Ray pointed me towards a post, where he states the PRICES etc.. will be out in August. So I assume each and everyday could be the day the pricing is posted.

    Either way it's pretty obvious IB doesn't have anything set in stone yet, hence why this thread is still open, lol.

    Should that happen I'll be in touch with steve again to get my old 2003 forum account password retrived. I was an active member of the old vbulletintemplates.com, and vb.org. I've got no time for e-***** post-count tardiness.

    From what I can gather, they are going to be offering a "stand-alone" version of the vB4 forum software (correct me if I'm wrong)! So people still have the choice to just use the forum only software, if that's what they prefer. And I would image, because they are going to be tying all the add-ons into the suite's core now. The stand-alone vBulletin 4 should be a better choice to use than the vB3 series, because all the hooks for the add-ons will be removed seeing as there will be no use for them anymore. Making it a much "cleaner forum" only solution than vB3.
