I don't think they do recode any vBulletin or IPB... they actually re-distribute the original software and even created generator to generate vB customer ID. Well I've said enough. I should back to upgrading my forum to its latest release.

You can explain this in anyway you want i guess.

Its kinda hard to see it as discount when the old price is $30 and you could renew whenever you want, but meh. 14 months is plenty time in my opinion to fork out $40.

I have no problem with the new license increase but I agree with everyone else with the renewal fee. It also seems like a penalty to me if you dont purchase it within 60 days. If you want to call it a discount, you must be ok with getting ripped off. If it was really worth $60, why bother offering it at $40 in the first place? Maybe because of the slow development rate and bad announcements. As for the blog, it wasn't worth the original $50 IMO. They want more money but still have not added a real gallery or CMS which many of us have been requesting for years. The blogs are amateur, the groups are useless and the support staff have developed an attitude in the forums. Worth the extra money? Not to me! 3.7 might look prettier but it's not worth the license renewal next time round. I would also assume that when 4.0 comes out in about 3 years, the price will jump again!

Everyone hates price increases but I think these are fair and reasonable :)

Now I am glad I renewed for 3 years instead of just 1 before today. When my renewal runs out, I'll not be able to afford Vbulletin, so at that time I'll either have to keep using the old installation, or switch to something else.

Same As Me

So you can afford to renew for 3 years before today ($90) but you can't afford $40 in 3 years?

Oh I get it, you are being sarcastic, that's funny! You are being sarcastic, right?

:rolleyes:

Nothing justifiable there. There is nothing to warrant increase here. Thats why guys now go open source and freeware. I wish I used SMF

I have a 50/50 stand on the price increase, granted it will be a small jab in our pocket books!

But @ the same time, considering this day and age, everything is going to be increased price wise... Even fast food restaurants jack their prices from time to time...

I have only been using vB for a couple years now, and find it to be the best software out there for community based sites... And over the short amount of time that I have been a consumer, I have seen great things happen with the software, and am very impressed to say the least... The development team of vB work hard to better the system for US... I know that it may not seem fair that they are upping the price, but do they not deserve higher pay in a general sense for their hard work & dedication...

It isn't like they are increasing it each year (least I hope they aren't planning to)

The 20$ extra for not renewing with in a 60 day time from is a little bogus, as well as the Brand Free fee, but the license price parts, seem fair...

Not to offend anyone, but if you seriously don't think you can handle this price increase, you might want to start looking for some Open Source forum software... but vB is the best your gonna find period...

Harley77 02 May 2008 14:58

I renewed my license about 2 days prior to the increase (lucky me). As for paying for the price increase, donations and adsense more than cover our costs at my forum and its not a big board by any means.

COBRAws 02 May 2008 15:38

It isnt that bad

Owned licenses give you a free year of updates. After that year (starting June 2), you must renew. The prices will be:
Within 60 days of the expiration: $40
Over 60 days: $60

This will provide you updates for a year as soon as payment is received.

i also see it as a penalty

Don't see why people are complaining really. You get to use the best and most intuitive forum system available on the market for what amounts to less then ten bucks a month. Consider the prices of other "premium" php applications and you will start to see what I mean. That's not even mentioning vB's excellent record of competent security updates and support.

I have tinkered with virtually every open source and retail php solution out there during the last ten years and whether it was a cms or forum script vBulletin still is and always has been heads and shoulders above the competition. To be honest they could double the price and I would still use and recommend the software above anything else.
