Oh, and I know the blogs are seen by some as a waste of money, and by some this decision would cause Jelsoft to lose sales... but just doing away with the blogs and cutting down sales would cause them far more harm in popularity and such like, especially from anyone who has purchased the vBulletin Blog software. Think about it, that'd would leave the problem that all Invision had to do is make a vB Blog to Invision Blog converter, take advantage of Jelsoft's remaining problems towards stopping the blog and there goes some of their client base to Invision Power Board and the Invision Blog software. What could Jelsoft then do? Offer a full refund and a conversion to Wordpress MU blogs + installation and forum integration service?

The same with the social groups that they started they are not even used. IMO forums are just that forums. That is why people join them. If they wanted to join a blog system they would go hunting for that. I IMO they should stick with improving the forums than going on to other things.
I'd agree though that the vBulletin Blogs should have have an area to demo them, so why can't Jelsoft just install say... two vBulletin installations and have the second one as a Blog and Project Tools non vBulletin development random test site or something? Or wait until that multi user per blog functionality gets added in, then just use one developer blog + maybe an RSS feed added to a page on their actual website referenced as 'Developer's Blog'?

It would require some extensive coding. You can post a new thread in the Mod Requests (Unpaid) forum and see if anyone would be willing to do this. Or, you could make a new thread in the "Paid Request" forum. I may look into it sometime in the future...
