Here's how I see it
I purchased IPB in August 2012 and looks pretty but not much else.
IPB is all about the developers owners making money , the most in a short period of time correct?
If the paying public are paying $175 for IPB which in my eyes is expensive, pay every 6 months after that for upgrades support etc. where other places give free support and free upgrades and the software is free.
I have been using php Nuke evolution for years thought I would change to IPB because It was recommended as being a great product
really isn't, its so complex and difficult to handle for new people to IPB like myself its really not worth the money or the time
No wonder people go and use the nulled stuff, I can understand why now but its wrong and don't personally agree with nulled stuff
The support is really that that crash hot either I have waited for days at times to get support wen logging tickets and for the money
its costs , not good enough
IPB is a good product, not worth what your charging, support is mediocre, 6 monthly updates is really a rip off
feel ripped off and thinking about going back to php its simple never been hacked, support and help is immediate and everywhere and FREE
IPB probably really don't care about what I say or if I leave but I have a lot of friends and clan members who are asking me abut IPB
Like other sin here I feel I'm getting ripped here...
I cant believe that if your board is not busy the bulk emails wont send or very slowly
Really for the amount of money I have spent on just about everything the emailing system is totally letting this great IPB down badly
is there a way to fix this? is someone working on this? maybe insert phpbb3 into IPB and might work properly?
at this point cant see me updating or getting any more IPB add on's until this is fixed
Bulk emails should be sent immediately not days later as in my case for just 100 members
yes ranting but needs to be said
