Blog on vBulletin.com to be Emptied

As part of our ongoing drive to improve communications with our customers, the vBulletin development team will soon be posting to a new development blog, providing tidbits of information and glimpses into future features, development processes etc. for customers who are interested in seeing where things are going and how they are progressing.

We will be using the vBulletin Blog installation here on vBulletin.com for this purpose, and in order to allow a clear signal without interference we will be emptying the Blog of all its current content on Friday, June 7th.

After this date, the vBulletin.com blog's purpose will be communication between Jelsoft and its customers, so we will not be allowing customers to post their own blogs, though they will of course be welcome to comment on entries posted by the vBulletin team.

If you currently have content in the blog at vBulletin.com that you want to keep, please make use of the time before the data wipe to take a backup of your entries and either post them elsewhere or keep them for your own records.

most commercial softwares does not have any working demos, you have to see their locked example and watch the screenshots... Jelsoft is using this technique and is not alone... i don't see why it would be a problem.

you could always register on a site where there is existing blogs and play with it...

I appreciate the enhanced communication and it is a no-brainer that Jelsoft would use their own product for such a thing but to not have a 'play area' for prospective customers is perplexing.

Bad decision IMO - you're selling a blog application for $60 - You would generally want your customers to be able to test the application... Who cares what other sites are doing. vBulletin is the top of the line application for online interactives. And I know whenever I purchase an online interactive script - The 1st thing I expect is to see some working demo of the script. I mean - there is even a vBulletin forum demo... Why take away the blog demo???

To allow no testing of the vBulletin blog application on vBulletin.com shows a lack of care towards prospective vBulletin Blog customers - I wouldn't be surprised if there is now a decline in vBulletin Blog sales.

It's probably better that people don't buy it. At least untill it's got more features. I'd hate to have people dissapointed in what they bought, when there is no demo.

True... And truthfully speaking - I like the vBulletin Blog - I thought it would be a very popular feature on JPiC, but apparently not... Perhaps vBulletin is gonna do away with it? Who knows...

Well I bought it for one of my sites and it isn't even used except by me. Plus I was very disappointed in it. I mean for paying the price it is pretty ugly compared to even wordpress or other blogs that are available for free. I think they should have made it something more special if they were going to charge for it. I personally won't be buying anymore blogs from them. 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.

No need to pay for the blogs add-on. As you say, it's not even worth to be a paid product -- Wordpress is a lot better and is FREE. You can however install WordPress, and do some coding so that each of your members could have a wordpress blog, and each have an admin panel. BB.com have done this and it's great!

Yes, I'm a weightlifter

You need to sign up though to use the blogs. They don't use the vB members profile, they created their own -- and you have a WordPress blog, plus admin powers to it.
