    Just curious on what the members here would pay for xenforo ... I put the price in yearly terms for simplification ... this could serve as a guide for the owners and lets me test the poll feature :D

    Ugh, you just couldn't let it eh?

    Since it's forum only. I'd go for $200

    You should've given us a choice of ranges like 100-150, etc. and not exact amounts, IMHO.
    My answer is anywhere from $100 to $250. So, I can't vote on your poll.

    You're right :( it can still give us a ballpark ... and when we know what
    else the Gold release will have we can maybe redo the poll. :)

    The forum is so nice to use I think the basic forum can support a higher price than other basic forums.

    You need to specify a time frame.

    Assuming over a period of 2 years, then ipb, and vb4 both costs about $100/year, right?

    Naw, he said "when it's released". I take that to mean, what would you initially pay for xenForo".

    instead of license + periodic renewal charges and other variations ... I think yearly price is simpler :)

    Exactly what came to mind when I saw the thread title. I'm not concerned about the price, because I know Kier and Mike will come up with something reasonable, all things considered.

    This comes to reason that a majority of forum owners do not/can not make money so a few hundred dollars can be a good amount.
    For me and many people who run business where forum is just a part of it, the cost is very, very trivial given that our hosting is a few hundred/thousand dollars a month.

    It's not like there isn't free option out there. When you take into account that according to Google, you lose 20% of your site traffic if the loading time increase 1 second. (not exact quote but something along this line)

    We want the best of the best, cost is not a concern.

    Depends on what this software will be able to do.

    Being that it will be the new guy on the block i suspect the price will be lower then the competitors and well that IS how it should be done. I don't care who or what is developing it. Asking for trouble if you come out with something new and charge what your competitors are charging and it does not live up to expectations. Plus you have to EARN your users trust and that is not had with a first release. Who is to say it will still be here in a few months, years etc? Thus why again you don't start at or higher then your competitors. :)

    I chose "Whatever price they sell it for, I will gladly pay!". However that is to a degree.
    I'm not going to pay $1000 for a forum software unless it makes coffee, has a map to the lost city of Atlantis and includes the secret of life.

    I've seen some people on this forum, well actually just one person, talk about price as if money is disposable. It is not, it's straight up snobbish.

    Here is what I say:
    I'll pay what I feel it is worth and not a cent more.

    So far I feel it is worth a great deal. However that opinion is wobbly since it seems a question I asked is being avoided, which makes me wonder what will happen when I'm actually a customer. :(
