    Don't know if this has been discussed but maybe having a small discount for vb/ipb licence holders. Not sure how much of a good idea this is legally or at all but it's just a random suggestion.

    I'm not sure about that.

    If the product is of high quality (which it will be), and priced fairly, I do not think you will need discounts to attract potential clients; it'll sell on it's own merits (and that will send the best message to competitors).

    How do you determine if someone is a current license holder? What defines current?

    I believe that if they're going to run with a sale, it should be open to everyone. After the sale ends everyone gets the same price. To much work would in my mind would go into trying to verify who owns a license, what does current mean, etc.

    For example, today I have 10 vB licenses and 10 IPB licenses, I purchase 5 XF licenses, do I get a dicount only on my first purchase? Do I get a discount until i match the XF licenses? Do I always get a discount for having those third party licenses?

    not sure how they would figure out who is a licensed customer of other software, anyway...

    I have faith that the product will be priced fairly and that it already proves that it is worth every penny...

    yes, especially for who renewed the vB license a couple of days ago ...

    Easy to prove who is licensed or not :)

    Most of us who found this place is likely a current and/or former vBulletin customer. Plus we tend to have kept our names as well.

    Verifying licenses from various vendors would put an undue burden on the XF staff, a pre-sale discount would be more efficient IMHO. ;)

    Bills are quiet easily faked.

    Bad Idea, they're 'most likely' going to have an 'early adopters' sale, doesnt matter if you're coming from vB, IPB, MyBB, PHPBB, SomeOtherBBwhichsucks - everyone should get the same price, and I say this as a license holder of 5 vB and 2 IPB, so yeah.

    Bad idea. Doesn't really make sense to me at all. :)

    As a customer sure I'm fall all and any discounts... military... senior citizen... child... (not that I'm any of those) but realistically this has nothing to do with vBulletin.., Kier and Mike don't make any money from vBulletin sales so what logic is it they should give discounts to vBulletin customers any more than Microsoft or Apple customers?

    Very mixed views but something like this was bound to come in a discussion and in my opinion after reading all the comments it seems unpractical.

    Pre-sale makes more sense to those willing to invest in our future.
