    I do think vB needs to make some changes fast, maybe scrap the entire release and promotion at this point and start all over.
    I agree, honestly I think the entire team needs to re-think this over.. make some significant changes, then.. re-release the pre-order WITH a demo.

    Does your order screen not do the same thing??
    If you weren't a sarcastic ass in the majority of your posts, I'd actually find you helpful and a good poster. Chill out, people will be repetitive, etc.. get over it.

    Nope because it was still only one page when I did read this thread and started replying. Thank you.

    I thought the increased font size might help them identify a query.

    Perhaps they're all too busy counting their money to give a **** about customers?

    Where's the $130 option?

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.
    Well, this looks correct.. I have an owned Licensed and have since the beginning of VB's existence....

    My annual support expired a couple months ago (in the past there is no big rush to renew before the expire date). I own Blog and Projects and when I just checked in my Account, they want $250 for an upgrade from me (of course you can just buy a full one for $235).

    Needless to say, I am very upset at this....

    I'm still running 3.7.5, there is no option to add support to even get the security updates for 3.7 or go to 3.8.

    version 4 is currently under private testing, and not publicly available yet, I am unaware of a gold-release date.

    What is going on?
    Not sure... but when I go to the upgrade screen, it tells me $250 with a $120 discount, for a total price of $130. I guess it's just set that way to get the calculation correctly set for upgrade special.

    (I'm upgrading just standard forums [no addons] to the publishing suite.)

    Basically either hope that vb4 is worth it, or end up paying nearly double.
    Hence.. optional gamble. You don't have to, therefore arms are not being twisted. -- We're going to do the upgrade, but I'm sure it will be a long time for us to actually use the version. It will take a long time for us to integrate/convert our old stuff to the new stuff. [I sincerely doubt VB4 will be trash]

    I have an active license until next year October. And it says $235 thought i there was a discount.
    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.

    It's not out yet, it's only pre-order. No demo, or anything to show what vB4 does.. it's a gamble.
