No. Its a good price for what you get. A year free of updates and access to 100s of hacks aswell as trouble shooting... but I sware I saw this thread already posted...

LDeer: They develope it.. what do you think?

That's less than $20 a month for the best forum software... I think it's cheap compared to a lot of other software out there.

If your serious about your site and message board, you should be willing to pay $160 for a script as good as vBulletin. And I personally think it is worth every penny. :)

did you know that some companies charge $800 for their software?
VB is extremly cheap for a professional piece of software. if you think some "free" boards are better, think again. dont get fooled by the nice graphs.. is a known issue most of free boards got inspired from vB, who truly pioneered the bulletin boards concept of interactivity and reliability.
great tech support also. period.

VB licenses are VERY CHEAP, considering the great support you get and what can be done with it.

the renewal fee's are great if you own a non-expiring liscence.

I don't think it is too expensive, sure, being webmaster you have a lot of expensize to cover, but really you cannot cut your budget on the community aspect, they are the ones who always visit your site. Your most money comes from your regulars.
