  • VB5 in 18 months? WTF!

    Originally posted by ct2k7 View Post
    When vb 5 comes out, you pay for vB 5, this should in 18 month's time.
    First it was $30 annual renewal, then $60.

    And the way this works out, under the old renewal price ($60) it would cost you $90 for 18 months ($60 + $30) (with free ticket support). Now, we will be paying $195 for 18 months (without ticket support). That's more than double the price, and is missing the ticket support. So pay more, get less. That's backwards. It should be pay less, get more.

    So someone tell me how vBulletin is doing us a favor? They are trying to make it look like "hey, you get vBulletin for the entire long life of 4.x for a one time fee and no annual renewals" when really VB5 will be here in record-time compared to previous versions. In order for the $195 price tag to be a deal, would mean VB5 would have to be over 3 years away.

    I just thought I'd point this out, because a lot of people are really thinking this new "no annual renewals" will save them money, when in reality it will cost you 2x as much.

    In what way have they NOT screwed us over? In what way have these changes brought upon any positive changes?

    Wayne has already said it would be something LIKE 2012, but there's no plans or so of when vB5 will come about. Don't believe everything you see from unofficial sources on the web, it just makes you look like a fool when you get worked up like this.

      ct2k7 is not a vBulletin representative.

      If you believe that VB5 will be out 18 months after VB4, while VB3 has been around for five years... Honestly?

      Everything has been guesses about VB5, there's been nothing released officially that states this.
      To be updated...

        My misunderstanding, I would have sworn I saw the vB staff avatar next to his name.

        But nonetheless, vBulletin is still screwing us over every other possible way.

          But still not like VB 3. VB 3 was around more than 5 years and VB 4 will be around 2-3 years.

            Not exactly. If vB4 lasts for a few years, then it's a savings in comparison. I mean, it's like an owned license without a yearly fee to have updates, so $180 + $40-60 per additional year or $195 flat fee?

            Also, look at the title under the username, not the avatar. Anyone can change their avatar. I'm pretty sure all vBulletin employees have their own name as their username as well.

              This has already been addressed here and does not need to be rehashed. Thread closed.
