    But, once your renewal expires in x-months, you can't just pay another $40 or $60.. It'll cost you $175 to renew! Free? Not really....

    Sorry, I thought you meant IB as in Invision Power Boards.

    I purchased the upgrade and am happy with it. I will wait patiently for 4.0 to come out. I like that the CMS and Blog are part of the package. As an owner of forums of both IPB 3.0 and Vbulletin 3.8 let me say that I can't wait for 4.0 to be released! 3.8 VB is better than the new release from IPB! I said this earlier on an IPB site "The only thing that IPB has over Vbulletin is Skins made by Dragonfly!".

    Just incase anyone thinks I don't own both the addresses are

    IB is running the show here, and has been since the day Jelsoft sold out to them and abdicated all responsibility for selling and marketing the product.

    All this well deserved acrimony should be directed at IB.
    Step away from the crack pipe! VB is not owned by IPB!

    Pre-Order and Pre-Purchase a pretty much the same thing...

And it's not uncommon, and it's also not uncommon for pre-orders to come with a sale to earn some trust from their buyers.

    You're free not to take the pre-order and wait until you can play with a demo.
    The thing is, it is not a pre-order. I've done pre-orders before. You have an estimated delivery date on a pre-order. IB is making no promise of when our order will be filled, and AFAICT, no indication what the refund policy is if it is January and they still have not delivered a product.

    it reminds me of a sloppy job not done too long ago by some of the other coders/staff and it seems to be a repetiotive action that keeps taking place. If this is what we are to expect from the release of the software and this is indeed what is represented by months of work I am looking back at the false hope implied with the blog and self destructing project tools.

    Do not speak for me. I will tell what I think is sloppy work as has been the norm here for several months and is just being emphasised by this newest level of a disaster they are calling a release.
    You sir, are an idiot.

    75% of those whining have actually pre-ordered it. So that means 25% of those whining have nothing to whine about. Oh wait, this remindes me of the release of vb3...

    Im quite happy with the screenshots they have shown us, and thats enough for me...

    But whats so sloppy about it? I think it looks quite nice, and its about time with front page got a change... geez... grow the f*ck up, and stop whining... put your money where your mouth is and be quiet.

    vB's a good product and it's made by a reputable company who has been around a very long time.

    Lots of people here seem to think the whole pre-release idea is a sham to get us to pay for something that will never exist.

    While I would like to see an expected release date, I am also going to spend my $130 and lock in my price, and I think that you did the right thing when you locked in your price.

    We should be glad that Jelsoft is trying to put together a quality product even if it takes too long, instead of rushing to release a bug-ridden product we would regret buying. And the pre-release offer is a considerable discount that we should also be glad to get.

    Since I just purchased an owned version of vBulletin (no blogs or anything) on August 21st would it be a good thing for me to spent the money for this? I use wordpress and dont'know if I need the CMS...or blogs. Thanks

    Don't start rumors on facts you don't have. That's not helping anybody.

    Once you have it and you review it and think it is half done, and released too early (despite everybody begging for it). Then you can claim in your opinion it to be half of what you wish it would be.

    I understand the frustration though, it's in my world ridiculous for any company to offer a product and ask for money prior to release or information. I don't know what motivates companies to do that. (This is not a stab at IB, but general business) But it is clear, it says: PRE-ORDER.

    You're free not to take the pre-order and wait until you can play with a demo.

    In a more realistic world, there would have been a demo to show you're confident in your product and sneak peak buyers to go pre-order it. So they have an impression of what they're investing into (again, pointing at general business). Online software seems to do it quite a bit these days, 'we are working on a new thing, we tell you nothing'. I don't know why.
    When I see this

    There currently seems to be a bug on the site. To ensure existing active customers get pre-sale discount pricing, ensure you log in with your customer number and password on the new vbulletin.com site 'customer login' link at http://www.vbulletin.com/login.php as pictured below. We're looking into the issue from members area logins.


    The discounted pre-sales price is only shown once you select the US$250 option from drop down menu. See below screenshot

    it reminds me of a sloppy job not done too long ago by some of the other coders/staff and it seems to be a repetiotive action that keeps taking place. If this is what we are to expect from the release of the software and this is indeed what is represented by months of work I am looking back at the false hope implied with the blog and self destructing project tools.

    I don't see how. It would be unfair if this were the pricing for the standalone forum perhaps, but considering this is a full social web development suite and incorporates a lot of new features and design elements I think it's very fair.
