I have had a license that has been sat around doing nothing, I had a bit of spare time and I thought I would start a new forum. I usually use xenforo for my projects but this time I thought I would give IPB a chance.
I logged into the client area to download IPB and to my surprise I couldn't download IPB because I needed to "re-activate" my license.. I couldn't even download previous versions of IPB.. So my license is worthless unless I renew. WTH!?
The point is, why should I have to pay to download IPB? Other forum software are nice about this and let you download the highest version up until when your license expired.
This and the $15 to change your site URL make me think that IPB are cash grabbing aholes.
I went ahead and paid renewal anyways, I'm going to download IPB and keep the files safe on my dropbox account so I can download them in the future when I need them.
