  • New Customer, Purchasing V4...

    Hi, can you guys point me in the right direction - my heads spinnin' man.

    If I buy V4, and download 3.8... start working on it... and then upgrade to version 4, do I have to restart all of my work or will it upgrade behind the scenes without losing anyone who has joined or made posts?

    If that's in a thread or a sticky somewhere please let me know.

    I mean, I guess I'm glad that I didn't buy 3.8 only to have a new release but I need to know something.

    Thanks and again if I've missed this info sorry.

    You will not lose users/data -- but styles, modifications, etc. will not work.

    My advice would be to start using it if you need to, but don't modify anything major.

        Around the same time Duke-Nukem Forever is released.

          "When it is ready".

            STORMS, start a new thread for that...

            Nobody knows.

            Mudcrutch, thanks for that... I have no reason to doubt you but is that kind of stuff documented somewhere?

            Also, am I right to think that we have until the end of October to purchase V4 for $195?

              If you work on customizing your vBulletin installation in terms of templates and modifications, be advised that vB4 will be replacing a lot of functionality that modifications require and all templates are being updated on vBulletin 4. So yes, you'd have to rework things to make it functional for vB4, but posts, members, certain settings, and other will be maintained.

              As stated, the discount lasts until the end of October, yes.

              Even though that game project has been officially discontinued... Please keep your posts constructive and less childish, for the benefit of everyone including yourself.

                It's not childish. I actually don't believe v4 will ever be released. Honestly, I think this is a ploy to raise capital as IB is hurting badly... If they don't sell enough, IB will shutter vB and it's so-long money.

                No legit company treats their loyal customers with this much disdain.

                    You know this is strange LegolasTheElf. I see a lot of posts complaining about the whining but coming in to this with fresh eyes it does seem a little crackish. I'm not saying anyone's smokin' it... just seems a bit crackish is all.
