    We're waiting a couple weeks to upgrade all of our sites.

    Are you aware of any compatibility issues for skins which were designed for 3.8.4? :o

    that's 99% of the reason we're waiting. :hs:

    none of them work

    ive been working on a dark one for my site. you have to style them using stylevars now, which is kinda better, but on vb they keep saying that the stylevars arent complete yet so some parts of the forum i cant even edit the colors :/

    but this is what i have so far

    Too many hax installed to move yet. Praying Live Topic gets converted.

    Those of you who do have legal licences how do you feel about the fact we will be paying $175 to renew instead of the normal yearly $60 for support?

    All of my sites are up to 3.8.4.pl2 or whatever it was that came out the other day. I have access to the 4.0 version, but mine are going to take a bit more work as I have most of the sites done through VBAdvanced and I will have to redo it all. Include new themes and I don't know if I will convert some of them at all.

    I'm not sure I'd switch until 4.1. At least until all the stylevars are there for complete style capability.

    'new' pricing model you pay per version so all the 4.xx releases you get for the $175, when 5.x comes out you are going to have to pay all over again.

    Total fucking bullshit considering I have dropped hundreds over the years and bought an owned license so I could just pay the $60 for upgrades if it seemed worth it to me and wait if not.

    You can be damn sure they will be pumping out a new version more often that they have been now that they have you by the nuts.

    They say you will always own your 3.x license but that means shit one they quit supporting it (I think after 4.01 is released next summer) and we are no longer able to get security updates.

    Always though vB was worth the $$$ being the best but I honestly feel betrayed and can see why a lot of people will be probably be opting to run a nulled version.

    Too bad there are not any better options out there.. atleast IMO.

    Check out vb.com/vb.org to see the shitfest over this.

    rolling the core out over the lifespan of 4.0 is fucking retarded, you're going to have to fix EVERYTHING with all of the major updates

    just tells me they wanna get this new core out and then they're going to roll out new versions as quickly as possible to maximize profit

    yea, unfortunately people are pirating the software and thats why they are raising the prices. I've submitted a few sites that i know have been pirated, but it seems like they dont do shit about it

    I would love to upgrade. Too bad 4.0 is still in beta, even though they call it gold. Maybe when/if they fix all their shit I will upgrade.

    Just the fact they released a "4.0 Gold" when it's not even fucking finished, is stupid.

    Then the new pricing scheme.

    I'm pretty tempted to switch to something else.

    They hand out DMCA notices like candy. I forgot to update the license details when I switch URLs for a gaming related forum, and within a month my host had been contacted.


    Problem is, most people who pirate it go with out of country hosts where the DMCA isn't honored.

    Anyone using it with SEO installed? I have a pretty big board that I will move to the 4x version eventually but I have to plugin SEO as well.
