    Default VBulletin Is Killing Me!

    I got this email from VBulletin about the latest version of cms/forum software coming out very soon. Plus, they are changing their licensing structure.

    Read below:

    Dear William Bottomley,
    We hope your community is enjoying the flexibility and power of vBulletin™. As always, our goal is to offer a great product at a great price, and we are dedicated to helping you build and grow successful online communities.
    Over the last 12 months, we have been building vBulletin 4.0 to be the most powerful forum and social publishing software. Today, we are proud to introduce the new vBulletin 4.0 Publishing Suite product that includes the power of the vBulletin 4.0 Forums with a seamlessly integrated content management system (CMS) and blogging platform.
    As a preferred customer with an active license, we are excited to offer the vBulletin Publishing Suite at a pre-sale discount price of only $130 (over 50% off regular price). This is a truly limited one-time special offer giving you $120 off the upgrade price but will expire on Friday October 30, 2009.
    Learn more about vBulletin Publishing Suite features and pricing on our new website: http://www.vbulletin.com/
    Beginning today, we are introducing new a license structure. vBulletin is changing to a one-time owned license fee for each major point release. That means no more annual renewal fees. Once you purchase a major point version, you’ll receive maintenance, security and minor point releases for the life of 4.x.
    You have the option to keep your current active license until it expires (according to the 12 month term and conditions). For the remainder of your active license, you will continue to receive support and have access to forum software updates, including vBulletin 4.0 Forums. Once your license expires you will only be able to access the 4 Series software updates by switching to the new one-time owned license. For more information, visit the vBulletin FAQ.
    Over the last 10 years, our products have offered an exceptional value and we look forward to bringing you the best and keeping you as a loyal customer. Our team is expanding in number and expertise in order to develop more innovative features and to deliver them faster. We are investing in exciting development areas such as new products and services for 'Big Boards' and mobile applications and look forward to helping you grow your community.
    Sincerely,
    The vBulletin Team

    I will purchase the upgrade to keep SCL and CC going!

    William,

    Did you ever get the "donate" issue resolved? I'll be glad to kick in $ if it doesn't kick me out like last the last time I tried. I haven't seen any posts in that thread since the question was last asked on August 23.

    I appreciate being a part of Christmas Carolina as well as SCL. I'm ready to do my part to help keep them up!

    I know you are not asking, but I also know it can get expensive keeping the boards going.

    Haven't had time to figure it out.

    After reading more about 4.0, it will have a cms, forums, and blogging tools available.

    Hi Robin, glad to have you aboard. I'm glad we cleared this up, I thought this was the other Robin..... wrong gender and state.

    I'm in as well, just remember, the Christmas budget is fading fast.
    And on the 8th day, God created Christmas lights.
