Seriously, you can be right.

If the forums were up and running as said in that post, then posting in the announcements forum would have, I assume, lead to the announcement feeding through to the front page of this site?

Also very strange to see him talk of the Suite when, as pointed out earlier, they were only upgrading the forums.

This has done nothing to allay fears amongst users - if anything, it will make things worse for them on their own forums. Think I'll go hide over the weekend or be exceptionally selective in the forums I read over there for the next week (carnage is the word springing to mind at the moment)...

No more fear here. It is a beta after all. There's a reason not everyone has their hands on it.

Agreed. This is extremely unprofessional. You would think a company as large as IB would have known beforehand that the new installation would not seamlessly interact with their current system.

I'm an I.T. admin. If I upgraded a system at our office and took over 24 hours for what should be 1 to 2 hours I would be fired.

I have used vB forum software for years. They set the standard for what can be done.

Lets look at the facts:
1. They boasted they have a better product coming which looks similar to IP product.
2. They ask us to purchase in *advance* a product we have never seen.
3. They are losing developers.
4. They stop the China group.
5. A "simple" upgrade has been down now for well over 24 hours.

This looks very bad for perception on the leadership. I am personally considering not upgrading. It makes me wonder if their core philosophy of quality over quantity has changed. There are other software for forums. Especially if I can no longer use 3.8 when my license "runs out". It also makes me wonder if the new product looks and feels like another product on the market if vB is actually innovating or simply re-skinning the old stuff.

I'm not trying to kick them while they are down, but that is my take.
