It's definitely not a positive experience for them as they struggle to upgrade. They mentioned that they have tested the upgrade with a copy of vb.com database and it went perfectly.
I can only pray that the first people to upgrade on their forums won't have anything go wrong.

Several of the alpha team members have done upgrades on test forums and things have gone smoothly. I heard the issue right now is a bit more complicated than just an upgrade.

Agreed... doesn't make me too inclined to upgrade.

Though, I imagine their board is huge and has some modifications made to it which complicates things.

You're basing your willingness to upgrade to 4.0 off of the first Beta??

At this time, why not? Should we base it on a gold release that hasn't been created yet?

Okay, so you're saying just because one test upgrade at vb.com on a beta went wrong, you don't want to upgrade your site at all? That's the impression I got from the post above mine and the post that person quoted. Doesn't make sense to me. It's beta software...sh!t happens.

And what about all the Alphas?

Its a bad sign when the company that makes the software cant upgrade its own site with its own software.

It's not considered stable yet, so I don't see it as a bad sign. It's still in development.

That would suggest that it's up but they're doing some QAT on it before letting Joe Public loose on it again...

They are damned if they do, damned if they don't.
People were expecting to see beta test sites and IB makes the decision to post their own beta. Good for them for throwing it out there.
Like I said, damned if they do, damned if they don't.
