I was calm about vBulletin for quite some time. Nothing hit nerve at me until one incident that I am sure all of you would revolt against.
Now I am very, very, VERY, rather motivated to develop a forum software idea. There's this fire in me, and a voice calling to me.
You see, when I started my company, I wanted to make it a leading media corporation. But now, I realize most recently. Why vBulletin customers are angry, raged... Now I see the side of vBulletin that I have never seen before. Now I have seen the side of vBulletin that everyone keeps hating.
An incident struck a nerve in me that makes me want to compete in the same "vertical" industry as them. And given my experience, I know I can do it. Nah, I won't be buying car sites, I won't be buying career websites, instead, I am going to buy video game websites which is the niche I am in.
I want to do something about it. Starting today, I am going to be actively selling ALL of my licenses. ALL of it.
My question to you; xenforo community, what can I do to create a competing, and an alternative to forum software. I must stress that I am in no way trying to compete with xenforo.
Thank you, vBulletin, you have ignited a new passion that I have never felt for a product. You have just pushed me to a breaking point where I want to do more business with KMA, and xenforo, that I am compelled to purchase 4 more xenforo licenses.
You have no idea how angry I am right now. No idea.
