Can the IPB staff comment on the original terms of service with the lifetime and perpetual licenses and the recent news that they are now going to eventually cancel our license and require we purchase an annual contract? Just curious on that decision profile. I'm sure it just a dollars and cents decision, and hey that's business I suppose, but I'd like to hear it from the source.
Silence is amazing -- IPB seems to care about selling 'more' licenses to new boards then helping more established larger sites. These sites however are what folks see on the internet and then want to start their own site with.
What $$ would it take to regain this option by exception and keep my current license? I assume there is a price that would make it worth it to manage things like this by exception. Happy to open a ticket if that is the right route to inquire on things like this.
I see 3.4.2 has been on this forum a few days for testing. Any thoughts from members on if they think this point release is stable enough for upgrading a large forum yet? Were any critical or major problem issues fixed for this release? The bug tracker does not list 3.4.2 so i can't see much on what is fixed.
... I assume 3.4.2 will be released next week some time.
If the food is bad I don't care why... it is up to the chef to use better water or treat the water they have to taste better. It is their job to present a product that their customers like and utilize the tools and food they have... correcting or covering up any flaws they have.
I doubt the end user cares whos fault it is. They just expect it to work. Sucks that the developers have to work around it but that is their job. For years people worked around IE's "bugs" -- that is just part of life.
