  • Looks like we now have an option for vBulletin 3. This is something I campaigned hard for, and I intend to buy it.

      It doesn't accommodate for everyone though.

      • To accommodate for everyone, they'd have to bring vB3 back into active development.

        This is the best we can hope for.

Any discounts in general are applied to the number of licenses you have.
          I agree with you in one respect - an owned license is worth something since it does allow you to run a vBulletin forum. But let's get to the facts:

          Since vB decided to make a VB 3 to VB 4 upgrade almost 90% of the price of a new license (usually it's 40-60%), the actual street value of a vB 3 license is... probably about $3-5. Nobody will buy a customer's owned license and deal with the hassle of transfer for the difference of a few dollars. vB decided to price in a way where there is no resale market and give incentive all customers to buy from them. It's just the math and why some customers were upset.

            Correct.


            vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...
