Its simple; I like XenForo already... and I have already decided I want to look into it as soon as possible. In October XenForo enters the public beta; and clients such as myself will be interested in paying the $100 early access fee. However, will the beta time cut into my 12 month license? What I mean, if I buy in October, but XenForo doesn't go "release" until December; will my license expire the following October, or December? People who buy the public beta are confirmed customers who have already paid; I feel it would be good etiquette to extend their licenses based on the length of the beta.
