Hooah! Well put! I personally don't think I would pay double xD but follow you with the rest

I dont care what Jelsoft charges, as long as they keep ahead of competing software in terms of features. The price is well worth it IMO.

Another thing to increase piracy, then say due of piracy prices should be increased which again increases piracy - that's just usual.
And reporting sites - do you really believe this would change something ? A DB and some files are faster moved and opened somewhere else a support mail is being replied.

But well - it's still ok though like above - recommending someone to pay the double price doesn't mean someone would follow this recommendation.
Open Source products get better and better over years - let's see

I am really sad for the price changing too
but...Vbulletin is simply the best, it's not all in the price, look how is code vbulletin, then how is code board like phpbb and others..
Look the support on the other boards, and look the support on vbulletin.
Look the modifications for vbulletin - then look the modifications for the other boards
Look in the admincp/ and the other features in vbulletin and then look in the other boards
Look the product manager

The most important... if you have vbulletin is like to drive ferrari, if you have other kind of forum is like to drive Zastava..

Well worth the money I think.

As for gas being $4 a gallon, you should try living in the UK where it's an estimated $10 a gallon :P

My opinion on the matter is that the price increase is fair. At the end of the day Vbulletin are a business and need to make money. Labour costs for updating the software have increased in the past 8 years so they need to keep the charges in-line with this. vBuletin is updated frequently and the support is good. I'm not complaining.

I would pay double for vBulletin any day. Just look how powerful it is. In my opinion, it should be more.

vBSEO is $150 -- and that is nothing to vBulletin its self.

vbulletin has never complimented my site so well since 3.7 and I don't see a problem with the vbulletin license charges or the "penalty" late payment system that some people are complaining about.

The first price increase in a long time. It seems reasonable, even at 20%.

I bought the blog product, so these changes actually save me money (I think).

The new pricing structure is very reasonable. Can't afford it? Ask your users to donate a buck or two.

You can look at it that way, as you bought it for 50 instead of 60 and you now don't have a renewal fee.

Price hike is alright. I agree with most people about the extra renewal charge after 60 days. It's total bull shit by the vB marketing/finance department.

It's almost as if they want to PRESSURE customers to renew. In the end, what's the point? Yeah you renew early and there is no real point. You see a patch update here and there. That's pretty much it. vB 4.0 isn't going to be out for awhile now.

So in the end, the members just have fork out extra money even if they don't use the renewal access.
