    New Question:

    I don't have $130 to fork over for the entire suite right now.. I only have two weeks to get that cash or I have to pay the full price?

    It's free just to upgrade to the forum. Read first.
    Please take note:

After they expire you will need to convert them to the vBulletin 4.0 license or accept that you won't be eligible for upgrades.
    A LOT of members have inactive/expired licenses that were looking forward to the 4.0 versions. Plus those who have the blogs etc basically have to upgrade to the full blown version which makes it worse if your license is expired/inactive.

    I see both sides, I think they should at least have a demo out before they have people pre-order. I'm holding off until the kinks are worked out.. then I'll upgrade. I'm pretty anxious to see vB4.

    That is how I read it. 4.0 Forums is a free upgrade for current license holders.

    I absolutely love the software vBulletin has to offer, but as far as putting the customers first.. what an absolute joke. The only beneficiaries from this situation is the ones banking the upgrade fee.

    I spent $180 to buy the Owned license.. having a year (I believe) of FREE upgrades. Now I have to pay $135 to upgrade to vB4? Seriously?

    While this may make things "easier" in the future, it's just a complete mess for those who have annual licenses or owned licenses from previous versions.

    I refuse to pay $135 to upgrade to something that I already own. To put it bluntly, I was screwed out of $180.. I should have bought an annual license, then paid $135 when that expired (since I've only had my license since May)... correct?

    I apologize in advance if I misinterpreted what I read, and if that's the case PLEASE correct me. However, if I have to pay $135 bucks.. I absolutely refuse. I understand the hard work put into all vBulletin versions.. which is why I prefer VB over other softwares... but this is preposterous.


    The people getting screwed are the customers who were with VB all along, and that's a huge smack in the face.
    I am pretty sure you actually haven't read anything about it. http://www.vbulletin.com/members/ that's the link. Go and have a look under renew/upgrade and have a read.

    Floris, the blog that I bought for 3.8.x is an add-on .... will that add-on still work with 4.0 Forums, or will you have to have the 4.0 blog that comes with 4.0 Suite ??

    I've logged in and am getting an upgrade price of $250 which is odd because you can buy a new license for $235.

    What is going on?

    I apologize for the using the word "I" too much.. I was ranting.


    If it is true that upgrading just the forum is free, then that is a-okay with me. Again, it was just a misinterpretation and I stand corrected.

    When the license was bought, I didn't get the blog add-on...

    Indeed, the blog is part of the suite, not the default forum.

    True, but terabyte is correct, blogs do not appear to be a part of of what is called 4.0 Forum .... perhaps someone from vB could clarify, since the blog is a add-on to 3.8.x .... will that blog add-on still work with 4.0 Forum?

    Of course, there seems to be a lot of questions that someone from vB could clarify. What I'm really reading on these forums tonight is a tremendous amount of misunderstanding and confusion.

    But you don't get any security updates after the end of the year you renewed your lisence.


    2) v4 - the suite with the new features - requires an extra payment.
    they are expecting you to put down money down on something you can't see, sense or test. Bad times imho.
