    Now it's to late to upgrade, I'm stuck with an older copy of VB 3.8 and have to pay $190? for an upgrade license
    Meh
    bad,, me too...
    Even as my license will expire on 4 October 2010.
    They are asking More 175$ to get more VB 4 updates. (they should change their policy )
    as they always (monthly bases) try to release a new bug free update, which again contains some bugs.

    How many people do you know that are going through some hard times this year? When my upgrade was due, i was not able to renew it. So i could not get the upgrade. Now then came out with some ridiculous time to let us old users upgrade for 2 weeks. Yet again i cannot come up with that kind of cash right now to upgrade.

    So, we pay once for not being able to keep our licsence updated. Then we are nailed again because we cannot save up enough to meet their dead line of Oct 30. Now we basicallt have to purchase a new licsense to be able to get upgraded, or pay the out rageous fee for the upgrade.

    I know this is probably the best package out there, but why turn against your own people that have been supporting this software for years.

    Now i do not like to whine about anything, but this really hits hard because a lot of us are suffering, and going through some tough economic times. You would think they would take this into consideration and lend a helping hand. Instead it is seeming more like a greed trip than anything else.

    It would be nice to see them offer something else for this reason, to help ease the strain for those of us that are needing a break. Specially to keep their software going. There is nothing like word of mouth, and i for one know for a fact that several people i know have purchased this software because i highly recommended it to them.

    Well, in any case, i just had to vent some. This really unfair to a lot of us. But who cares right?

    Regards,

    AXG

    If you let your vB3 license expire, then you are the same as a new customer. This is the new philosophy of vBulletin.

    Dude we are not new customer , we already had paid too much, now why we had to pay again about same money as a new customer is paying.
    We already had paid 180$, now again 175$ to upgrade (renew)
    means total fee for old customer is

    180 + 175 = 355$

    and for new user only 195$,

    But It never happened anywhere, that company is treating old customers like this.they always prefer old customers than new...
    Companies always take care of old customers 1st ,and we are not purchasing new thing, we are just upgrading old thing.

    Are you what forum´s often refere to as a post hunter ?

    What can anybody use your reply to ?
    No I am not that. If I was a post hunter, I would be up to 10,000 posts by now.
    All you did was ask a question and all I did was answer it for you without acting stupid.

    Ok without turning this into another argurment thread - where it looks to be heading - the only option currently available is to either update your current license to the vB4.0 Forums Only (or Suite but you have already stated that you didn't want).

    The pricing has been something that people have complained about, however with a new company taking over, more designers and coders coming on board the overhead costs have risen - they could have just charged everyone the full amount however have opted to support the customers that have supported them and offered them some sort of discount.

    Many will speculate about when vB5.0 will be released - however the truth of the matter is the vBulletin Solutions and Internet Brands are focusing the majority of their attention on getting vBulletin 4.0 to a stable release condition. Earlier posts from Ray were approximate and therefore you are probably looking towards 2-3 years for it's release however just like everyone else this is pure speculation until something is Officially announced.

    If you want to upgrade to 3.8.4 you will need to get one of the new licenses for vb4, at least doing so will open the door for you for at least the next year to have the forum updates/upgrades that are bound to come with 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 etc etc - support for vb3.8.x will cease when vb4.2 is released however at least you have the option to upgrade to vb4 as by 4.2 you can expect a much better release than what may be out there for the original release of vb4.0 and modders and skinners would have brought out their ranges of addons.

    OK….to reiterate as to the possible release of 5.0 here is a quote by Steve from what Ray meant in regards to the release of 5.0. Now….does that sound like 5 years before its releases and a good bet?
    Now stop the wishful thinking and living in a dream world as to more expenditures within about a minimum of two to two and a half years.
    I’m just stating plain and simple facts here. Nothing more…nothing less.
