    I'm not sure which is more disturbing. Your description of that poor fella, the fact that you would confuse folks for him or the fact that you seem obsessed with him. :/ :?::!:

    Still Wong Adam, sorry.


    BTW, Bernie lost, get over it.

    I'm not going to argue on who I am. That would be silly. Who is Bernie?


    Assume you did first purchase 4.0 and then upgraded to 4.1 a year later, you still saved more by using WoltLab. ;)

    • 4.0 was released December 2013 for $90 and 4.1 was released December 2014 and the upgrade fee was an additional $40, for a total of $130 from which you continued to received 2 years of free support and updates there after.
    • Xenforo I paid $140 for the 1st year and had to pay $40 each year there after, which means I paid $220 for updates and support.
    • If I buy Invision Power Board it would be $200 for the 1st 6 months and $25 every 6 months there after, which means for 2 years of updates and support I would pay $275.00
    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Xenforo = Saving $90 switching to WoltLab
    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Invision Power Board = Saving $145 switching to WoltLab

    I can use those savings for whatever I wish including other products and services.

    I think you are wong Adam, there was an upgrade fee from 4.0 to 4.1 wasn't there?

    I'm sorry, but I'm not Adam.


    You were not required to upgrade to 4.1, but assume that you did first purchase WoltLab at the time of the release of 4.1 you still saved more by using WoltLab. ;)


    • 4.1 was released December 2014. I paid $90 only 1x and received 2 years of free updates and support.
    • Xenforo I paid $140 for the 1st year and had to pay $40 each year there after, which means I paid $220 for updates and support.
    • If I buy Invision Power Board it would be $200 for the 1st 6 months and $25 every 6 months there after, which means for 2 years of updates and support I would pay $275.00


    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Xenforo = Saving $130 switching to WoltLab
    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Invision Power Board = Saving $185 switching to WoltLab


    I can use those savings for whatever I wish including other products and services. ;)

    Cheaper? It is 90 US dollar, how is that cheaper? :)

    • 4.0 was released December 2013. I paid $90 only 1x and received 3 years of free updates and support.
    • Xenforo I paid $140 for the 1st year and had to pay $40 each year there after, which means I paid $260 for updates and support.
    • If I buy Invision Power Board it would be $200 for the 1st 6 months and $25 every 6 months there after, which means for 3 years of updates and support I would pay $325.00


    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Xenforo = Saving $170 switching to WoltLab
    • WoltLab Burning Board vs Invision Power Board = Saving $235 switching to WoltLab


    I can use those savings for whatever I wish including other products and services. ;)

    I actually do like the new design. At first I was a bit surprised but it has grown on me. The only change I would make is to remove avatar next to the quick reply. But that can be done via some simple css and so I'm not worried about it.

    You are probably seeking for new/more features, correct?
    As far as I know and read on the posts there ist most likely a feature freeze now... only bugs will be dealt with until the gold release..

    While more features would be nice, yes... I understand the current feature freeze and not believe leaving the beta phase is the best policy at this time.

    The RC phase will take as long as we think it needs to take. This is how we've done it with every single release in the past and we have no intentions to change this.


    That is not historically accurate. I do recall past releases and it seems history is repeating itself. I would simply ask that you please hold your words true though and release it only when it is actually ready.


    There is no internal deadline.


    Denial of internal deadline does not remove the effects of one.

    The beta stage is almost complete and WoltLab Suite will enter the Release Candidate (RC) phase on December 15th along with the previously announced upgrade of woltlab.com. This site will then be switched into archive mode, preventing any new content from being added, eventually being merged into the main site at a later point of time. This means that this site will continue to exist for some time after December 15th until the merge is performed.


    For those of you that already have an account on woltlab.com, we kindly ask you to double-check the email address used and to ensure that both the account on woltlab.com and on this site match. The import will merge users based on their email address, while keeping the username from woltlab.com.


    We would like to take this opportunity to express our eternal gratitude towards all users that have provided us with valuable feedback and reports during the whole beta phase. Your invaluable support has paved the way to build the most outstanding and awesome version ever released by us, pushing the limits of what communities can achieve by an order of magnitude. Thank you!

    In response, I would again like to please ask that you please delay your schedule. While I do believe WoltLab Suite 3 has come a long way, I do not yet believe it is as ready to leave the testing phase. I suspect you're planning a short RC (release candidate) phase and plan to wrap up development into the final release this December 2016 (if not early January 2017).


    I would very much like to see a stable release and not have this rushed to fulfill an internal deadline.

    You ever think you're given answers only for the sake of being given an answer, yet one that truly offers no solution? ... ie ... Something pleasing enough just long enough in hopes that the question or problem will drift out of memory.


    I suspect all things relating to WoltLab and Grammarly fall into this category.

    Which (proof otherwise not shown) it wasn't/isn't a continuation of a convo that took place out of this thread. It's a continuation of THIS thread in which was specifically commenting on that Debian and Ubuntu were "not much different". Using a logical though process one would naturally make an assumption that he was attempting to show a comparator that proved Debian and Ubuntu were alike.

    His actual sentence was


    "Actually, Ubuntu is not as much different from yahoo.com"


    Which at best was either a mistype or a line of thinking that needed more explaining.

    A youngster with half way decent thought processes

    Your belittlement against others; who would harmlessly seek clarification without assuming anything, clearly shows your mentality.


    Have a wonderful day. :)

    You don't. I made an assumption that he was attempting to link to something that was "showing" that they were similar. Sometimes one has to make some extrapolations from a statement using the context of the flow of the prior conversation.

    Unless his / her post is a continuation of a conversation which took place elsewhere, outside of this thread, it would still be out of context for everyone else.
