Is vBulletin's slogan a bit outdated?

Just the way it says 'Instant Community', despite most forum communities sure as hell not being instantly a community, let alone a successful one? Anyone else end up thinking of the amount of people who might actually buy just for a literally instant community without realising how important patience is?

Instant community site would probably be more apt, that's if you don't count the 60-90 minutes upload time for all the files =D

That time depends on your internet connection / server speeds.

I wonder what the fastest time someone's uploaded vbulletin in. I would love it if it did it in just a couple of seconds =)

I've done it in quicker. Just uploaded the tar.gz from a 100mbit line, and then extracted via shell Okay well not 2 seconds but easily done in 10seconds if you have the command ready

I've never had vB files take longer then 60 seconds to upload.

I think compared to the time it takes a real life community to develop (like hundreds of years in some cases) I don't think "instant" is a stretch for a vBulletin community.

i don't think the work "instant" mean "in time" but "in no hassle"...

most of the forum softwares i know are more complicated to install... even phpBB which was quicker with the 2.x is now a complicated task in 3.x because of the numerous features to make happen...

actually, the slogan could be refined to be more suitable to the "expandable" way we are now.

I've always thought the slogan was a bit dumb. As for me, I've uploaded the vBulletin files and set everything up in about 10 minutes total, so I guess it's "instant" when compared to some other BBS scripts that can take longer to configure.
