Far higher than what was delivered. But hey, Que Sera Sera - not my beef, not my problem and not my money going into their coffers. It is what it is and I can make my choice and lay my hat wherever I call my home. It really doesn't interest me at all. If people love it, good for them!And... what were your expectations?
Not really as it would be a pointless exercise, let's just say that their diatribe when 2.0 was released led to expectations of amazing things to come with 2.1, which they haven't, which in itself is no surprise. XF as a forum only software is excellent at what it does, but beyond that it pales in comparison to the competition.Care to elaborate!
I would be most interesting in what expectations were led to.their diatribe when 2.0 was released led to expectations of amazing things to come with 2.1, which they haven't
I was never in any doubt that 2.1 would fall flat in fulfilling the areas that most people at the launch of 2.0 were bemoaning about, in how it was lacking new and interesting features and the devs were saying "wait until 2.1" as though something amazing was going to be forthcoming ... so we waited, and zilch. All of those expectations of something great and brilliant that were 'implied' by the rhetoric of the time never came to pass. I could list a whole bunch of expectations, but to what end? Expectation often leads to disappointment and in this instance that is a truism.I would be most interesting in what expectations were led to.
Whiz-banger features never seen before that nobody has an idea of what they could be..... or simply what some people wanted <stomping of feet heard several times like an angry 5 year old) right now.And... what were your expectations?
As robinhood said, your license is perpetual but there are optional renewal fees if you want access to the updates. If you don't pay the renewal fee and let your renewal date lapse then you still have full access to the support forums and you can still download any version of XF that was released up to the date of your last renewal date. I don't know if it has changed or not but I think if you lapse you also can't submit support tickets; the forums are still available, just not the private ticketing system.So do you actually need to renew XF? Or can't you use it without paying for renewals and only pay for updates?
Gotta give VB some credit... at least you only pay once and cry once... =P And have access to all of the versions.
