  2. For what it is worth (although I do not have a lifetime or perpetual license, but I did at one time so am thinking as if I still had the license) I feel IPS are being fair, they are offering to convert licenses AND give a credit to the accounts I have no idea what the original cost was for those licenses but feel that although some paid extra for support (believe $30 year) they have been able to download newer releases for however many years it must be now since those licenses were available. So, if the license holders take the offer of converting AND accepting the credit offered they are then able to use their 'credit' to renew every 6 months which in effect could mean up to 2 years of further downloads/support Overall I think a good offer from IPS as you could effectively say you have been using the software for number of years (costing you maybe $30 year, what is that ...0.60c week) and still get up to a further 2 years of support/downloads before having to pay $25 from your own pocket every 6 months Yes, I know the original license cost more than they do now so would have to add that factor onto the 0.60c week but feel still works out that in some cases the amount you paid for license was less than the credit IPS are offering (I did say in some cases, not all) Not sure have explained as well as I would like, but wish I had a few of those licenses to convert over as would do so Would like to give IPS top marks for the way they have handled this situation as no doubt it could not have been an easy solution for them

  3. No, we can keep your renewal date the same. We can also convert the license in a dormant/expired state and you can use the credit at a later date if you wish. I understand it's a disappointment -- let's be honest, getting something free forever and ever is a great deal and at the time of offering, it was something many companies, large and small, thought would be viable in the long-term via upsells, support offerings, etc. The reality is, the "extras" didn't materialize for any of us and it was not sustainable model. We've made a much larger commitment to honoring it as long as we can. I want to be careful so as not to give the impression that we do not value you legacy holders, as we truly do - but legacy licenses represent a VERY (less than 3%) small percentage of our overall customer-base, yet an immense amount of effort and development time spent trying to "shoehorn" accommodations into the software and systems. Unfortunately, we just need to move forward and we knew going in that we would very regretfully cause some natural ill will for some. Again, I think we're being as fair as we can beyond giving the farm away for free indefinitely, which, if you've followed along causes ill will with other/current customers who feel they're funding all these new fancy things that weren't even on a roadmap at the time of your purchase and certainly not "forum only."

  4. I understand that other companies may have done wrong, however my licenses are perpetual licenses and not the lifetime licenses which IPB also offered before the perpetual license. This is the guarantee and selling point for my licenses and why I purchased them: Upgrades for life Telephone support and ticket support for 1 year - $30 per year thereafter. There is not somebody who thinks they are being unfairly treated, it is somebody / along with others who purchased the perpetual license for the guarantee and to help support IPB are being unfairly treated. NO that was not listed anywhere at the time of my purchases, if it had of been then I know I would not have purchased the perpetual licenses and I bet I am not the only one who would have not made the purchase. It is easy for anyone to chime in here and make a comment, well that is okay, oh I understand, it will be fine, etc., etc., but if you do not own a perpetual license why are you commenting? Non perpetual licensed / regular license members this topic does not pertain to you nor are you the one being told your purchase is not going to be honored and your licenses are changing.

  5. The issue is, there is no IP.Board 4. Yes, we could give you what you see in IPS4 as the forums app, but it wouldn't do anything. To progress and ensure continuity and an overall improved experience for end users across apps, key shared functions such as file handling, searching, member management/profiles, etc. are part of the new IPS4 suite core... they are not part of forums. So, yes, we could allow you to download just the forums app, but I don't think you'd be pleased with the end result. We're not trying to be sly, it's just literally not possible to give you just forums without giving you the suite core -- which on the surface is the easy solution, but then we're back into hacks and provisions for current and future planned services such as spam mitigation. To answer your other questions, everyone would be on the same license structure -- so the renewal would be $25 every six month for the base suite (as described above + the forums app) -- in your case, you'd be paying $10 more every six months. We have no immediate plans in mind to increase the $25 renewal and in any event, it won't increase for IPS4. :) Neil2 - we typically support the previous major release for roughly 2 years. So you can certainly remain on 3.4.x

  6. Hi buddy, Thanks a lot for the great app first of all. I have customized your hook a little bit and now it's going to list my subforums on board index as icons: If you are interested to add this functionality to your app, I can share all required pieces of code to ease your job. I assume most of your customer will enjoy this add-on as it can really bring brandnew experience to IPB board index and make it more attractive Just PM to me if interested. Thx.

  8. There will always be some that are up in arms about this. To paraphrase Lindy's posts, IPS is trying to do right by those that helped get IPS going. They, IPS, don't want to just leave them, perpetual / lifetime licenses, out in the cold. For those talking about IPS must follow the agreement they made to a T, indefinately, Keep in mind that most, if not all licenses likely include the following verbiage in some form or another. IPS reserves the right to change the terms of this Agreement at any time. I do want to say, I respect media's actions in this topic. Their level headed and constructive approach. It is refreshing to see clients that take a step back and analyze what's truly going on and try to absorb it rather than lash out and/or name call.

    Cool. That would be a neat feature for future versions.
