The increased license-costs are ok IMHO - at least when you earn money with your site.

After all one thing I learned (everyone must make his own experience, but this is how I see
it): When you use professional (and vB IS professional - be it security or functionality,
hands down) application and the support from time to time, it saves money, especially
compared to open source solutions. I have a one-time license fee and thats it. And I have
the right to complain, wake up vB-staff to help me etc

When you have open source solution, you can have luck and have nice and responsible
persons at your site - but it is a matter of trust, a matter of luck and - most important -
a matter of motivation! I saw countless! applications, be it win32, unixoids or webbased
apps that leaved abandoned/orphaned behind and I was the lucky one who fixed that shit
because I was dumb enough to believe anyone would care about them.

Obviously this is not the case with e.g. phpBB - but to be honest, I NEVER wanna miss the
support and attitude to things of vB-staff and before I must shutdown vB and use some
other opensource/free software again at my productive sites - I tend to better lack some
cinema-visits, buy a cheaper whatever or smoke some cigarettes less (anyway good idea
to quit smoking )

I agree that its harder for hobby-admins, although I would use vB even for hobby-sites
before I switch back to phpBB (maybe because I never forget how many countless hours
I spend to fix/add/edit core-files) - everyone who reviewed phpBB code and compared it
to vB-sources must agree - or is blind (imho)

just my 2cent.

I still wonder why a UK company, releases and supports software in American English and sells it in US dollars.

8 years ago the vbulletin :

2000: 100 Licences
2001: 1000 Licences
2002: 4000 Licenses
.......
.......
.......
2008: 10.000 Licenses =$1.100.000 or more or less ??

Members: 176,515 --Vbulletin.com
Members: 22.014 --vbulletin-germany
etc.... etc....

Ok some of them is a pirate person other dont renew but is 50/50?? --20/80 ???

Of course this values is not true but is an example of the Jelsoft making money because every user make publicity to vbulletin, and yes is good product but i think its a shame increase the prices wen i believe 2007/2008 is the best year sales to Jelsoft.

I like jelsoft products but i dont agree with this new prices

Lol i agree on that, UK is getting stupid and we have to put back on everything because of the price. Its a little stupid I think.

But overall, people need more money to pay for all the money increased prices around the world, so it was going to happen sooner or later..

Money people earn, in eight years, has gone up. The guys at Jelsoft have had the same prices which I know probably doesn't mean their wages go up but it looks that way. In eight years, it's been the same price. To me, this means either it was well over-priced to start with OR it is now to cheap.

I will continue to pay my Renewal Fee for my Owned Licence, because I know I will get a great service, and the ability to use my forum wherever I want. If one of my sites goes down the pan I still have my vB to put somewhere else.

Price increase, yeah we're all gonna say it's a bad thing because who wants to fork out money for anything... but it's life. You look at the price, and then look at the features, and then make a decision. Period!

Considering the only benefit from this up in price is if you purchase owned license, I don't see many people going leased. Now that I work at a job that doesn't give anything for a pay increase, I can't afford to continue with vBulletin products even though I love them to death. All I can say is I will not be renewing any of my licenses. I am releasing my last mod as a vB addon, from there depending on sales, will really determine if I will continue with vBulletin and upgrade to at least an owned license.

Thanks for the great products and only time will tell how many people will stick with vbulletin after this increase in prices.

Cheers

You could always just wait until a few years when you have enough money and vBulletin 4 is also out.

I'm a hobby admin and for the very reasons mentioned above, I wouldn't go back to open source for quids. Knowing our site will still be there the next day and not having to spend countless hours repairing generic code errors makes admin a pleasure.
