            Businesses need more than "it will promote it in the future". Building a plugin store would require a significant investment to set it up, followed by a significant ongoing investment to police and maintain it.

            Such massive cost would require a defined return on investment. The truth is, there wouldn't be one. A few "possible" extra license sales at some undefined and unmeasurable point down the line wouldn't cut it.

            The reality is, it isn't ever likely to happen. In effect there is a 'plug in store' already anyway, in the form of vbulletin.org.

              It would be nice though if vbulletin would develop and sell some plugins themselves. I would definitely spend money on plugins that would be developed and supported by vbulletin.

              What was great about vb3 and vb4 was the range of plugins, template modifications, tutorials and other information that was available for these version.
              That is what is lacking for vb5 IMO. On vb.org there are only 3 pages with plugins since 2013. And for Vb4 there are almost 80 pages.

              Also when googling for specific vb5 information a lot results are vb3 and vb4 related. Sometimes it is hard to find a relevant result, because it does not exist of because most results are older versions of vb. Maybe when VB6 will be released it would be nice if it has a distinctive name. ^^
