    I'm pretty sure if you have an inactive/expired owned license, you won't be able to do that. You have to pay for the regular 4.0 forum $195 which is the new license (even though technically you have an owned license) and for the 4.0 Publishing Suite its $235 which is also a new license. If you don't get a new license before the pre sale ends (oct 30th we read) then it will be $285 for the new license for the 4.0 publishing suite.

    This is the thing that worries me. I'm a customer/registered owner license holder since 2005 and has renewed my license about 3 or 4 times since. I was holding off to renew my license in preparation for Version 4 and now I find this!. I was expecting the $30 upgrade fee.... or even a $50/$60 is OK but $195 to upgrade my forum (only) is a bit much.

    IMO, Anyone with an Owned License should be able to upgrade to Suite 4.0 for $130 (and those with Blog should get a discount)

    I can't disagree with that... the post right below yours being a case in point:

    Let's see: Can't read, apparently. Can't spell. Can't switch out of "txt spk" to even approach being able to hold an intelligent conversation...

    It only lacks a few things, those could be cleared up quickly if they choose. No matter what some people are going to be unhappy.

    They're being deleted because I don't think anyone needs 2 dozen threads all saying the same things. If it were my forum, I'd merge all of them into one ginormous mudslinging thread and tell everyone to knock themeselves out.
    LOL....

    Carefully noting the forum in your sig

    So it's because my owned license has expired?

    Then why the hell did vbulletin send me this email?

    As a preferred customer with an active license, we are excited to offer the vBulletin Publishing Suite at a pre-sale discount price of only $130 (over 50% off regular price). This is a truly limited one-time special offer giving you $120 off the upgrade price but will expire on Friday October 30, 2009.
    Also, why were we not advised via email to upgrade before this to qualify for the discount?

    Hey vbulletin you greedy bastards, this is the greatest single PR disaster I have ever witnessed.

    It can't get much worse than this situation is, I think the Titanic had a better trip.

    I feel current vB managers think that they have a captive customer base and that they are over confident to the point of where they feel they can do things that are not reasonable.

    I think they need to pay attention to their customers and code products that we actually want, not what they think we want or what the "hot thing" in the marketplace is.

    Social networking is hot, but so were blogs at one point, I just don't think taking forum software and creating social networks and blogging is the way to go.

    I really don't think forum owners want to run social networking sites.
