    short answer ... nobody knows ... nobody's telling us anything (yet).
    Planning to continue using VB 3.8 post EOL? Then join the VB 3.8 Forever group and vB3Forever.org!

      That's how it should work. But the company won't assure it's current customers that they'll at least get what they paid for.

            In other words: "We are trying to figure out the statistics of how many people will leave vBulletin vs how many people will purchase the upgrade. This is taking us some time."

              When I purchased my license I was told I would be elgible for free upgrades of vBulletin, not limited to any specific version. It is also stated when you buy it that you are entitled to free updates 1 year from purchase.

              I'm no expert but I would imagine that if Jelsoft goes against that and tries to charge eligible customers to upgrade from 3.7.x or 3.8.x to 4.x, a class action lawsuit could come about.
