  • Pre-Sale 4.0 Vbulletin No DEMO?

    I love vbulletin honestly, and I would spend any amount of cash to upgrade to 4.0. Even if the price was $300 or $400, for 4.0, I would still pay it. I came here with the intention of seeing a demo of the product. If you are going to present such a a big promotion, us customers need to see the actual demo before we put down any big amount of money.

    What angers me, is that, you offer us a huge discount and sale and we don't even get to see what it is like.

    Maybe you could create a demo, and just make it with errors and glitches, and have them fixed by the release.

    Please, just let us see what we are buying.

            Happens on all of our forums too.

            When you do something unpopular and don't communicate it clearly, this is the result. Any forum admin could tell you this is what to expect.

                cause vB 4.0 is in Alpha 5 stage, they stated before that they might bring the beta online here.

                  I'm glad this thread was made specifically though.

                  Jelsoft "accidentally" sends out a mass email to people with inactive owned licenses, telling us we have a few days to pre-order an upgrade at a discount price. Nice marketing tactic, beautiful new front page, but where is the preview? The CMS doesn't even appear to be using any widgets or SEO friendly URLs.

                  I hope their is an adequate live preview before the discount runs out, because these are very exciting times.

                      No, I don't. The Alpha 5 stage was mentioned on vb.org.

                        If your going to make such a big promotion, at least let the people see what they are buying.

                          The main one was a valid chat about trying to sell the product without a demo.

                          It was closed in an almost childish way of having the last word saying the best we will get before the offer window closes is screen shots.

                          So in theory the more that get closed, the more work they will have to do.

                          People are only giving a positive view on a valid reason not to part with any money.

                          We are the customers and always right!! lol
