      Series?

      Has anyone heard an estimate on how long a series is expected to last?
      I would hate to be buying into a series per year deal or something the way
      Apple handles their ipod/iphone firmware upgrades.
      It seems like every other week, I'm sending out more money for an update.
      The present vBulletin software has progressed a series about every 3 to 4 years.
      I'm sure with the new development team, thats surely to lessen dramatically.

        No.

          nevermind - I found this in someones signature

          vBulletin 4 Pricing Structure
          Active vB License: Try vB4 for free until expiry. Upgrade vB3/vB4 for $175.
          Expired vB License: Upgrade vB3/vB4 for $195.
          Active vB + Blog License: Upgrade now for $130. Upgrade in Nov for $250.
          vB5 expected in 12-18 months Upgrade again for $195?

          $390 for the next 4 years > $40/year

          So vB5 in another year or so?
          Looks like the life cycle is short.

            6 months ago, Ray Morgan said that we should be "knocking on the door of vB5 in 18 months". Even if they really slip up on release dates, let's say 2 years from now. That's $195 x2 in 2 years. Just shy of $400. Yeah, I miss those $40 annual renewals already.

              Theres that Sig, lol
              Thanks, I searched high and low for that earlier.

              I admit its quite scary.
              Not only asking for an extra amount of cash but a drastic change in the infrastructure itself, forcing coders and designers to wander into new territory.And all this on blind faith.
              Like walking into a dark room with your eyes closed holding out your wallet.

              I hope theres a trustworthy community in that room to guide me.
              But I dont see paying more for a script than what my hosting will cost.
