I can honestly say that I am not entirely happy with vbulletin 4 as a solution for our Church, it has some nice features as standard but it feels, I don't know, clumsy somehow, and the shall we say 'mood' of the central vbulletin site is very unpleasant indeed. I have known of xenforo for a while now as the late Alice Howard was one of our tenants before she passed away, she was trying to talk me into using xenforo for the Church back then. I am not a wealthy man, raising money for the license is going to go hard on me and mine and we do not accept any form of donations through the Church, we are not about making money from those in need.
I used vbulletin 4 because the license was already valid, it was donated to us by Alice actually, but as I say, I am not entirely happy with it as the platform for our Church. I have been wandering around on this site seeing how the xenforo platform functions and I must say I am very impressed, it feels super modern and very sleek. There is this business with a court case which troubles me quite a bit, raising money for this license will require my selling off a great many of my personal belongings to raise the funds. I am loathe to do this if I am going to find my license null and void due to xenforo losing this court case.
Can someone in authority here tell me honestly if there is much of a chance of my losing my investment here. I realise $140 may seem a drop in the ocean to many but I live my life using and attaining as little money as possible, owning money makes me feel spiritually dirty to be quite truthful. I don't have many possessions either, so selling what I have to buy xenforo will really come hard, so you see my concerns are quite something from my perspective.
Please, if members here are tempted to reply giving me their opinions about my situation, I do welcome them but I would ask you to be reticent if your choice is to be rude or abrasive, I am simply seeking 'genuine' words of comfort from those in the know.
