    I have noticed VB4 starting to pop up all over forums - I cant stand it to be honest, I find it hard to navigate to do the most simple things but what's your views on it?

    Same here, I don't find it easy to navigate. The functions we were used to and comfortable with this VB4 has changed it a lot.

    I will probably never upgrade SR to VB4.

    dont forget that VBulletin 4 is like a new product, in the future more and more upgrades/improvements will be released. I also think it was totally rewritten thats why you see many changes. But from previous use all of you should know the vbulletin was and always will be first choice for forums ;)

    Clearly vbulletin didnt get feedback before bring out v4

    Because the current version is still user-friendly and the main focus of SR is to share high quality content and resources for webmasters that's why I am not thinking about upgrade at the moment.

    Why fix something that isnt broken?

    JUst because others upgrade doesnt mean you have to, some forums are still using phpbb or smd and more than happpy with it!

    Dont need to follwo the crowd just because everyone else does, infact not changing is a good thing sometimes as when people get annoyed with a upgrade and cant find out how to navigate around then tend to look elsewhere!

    The V4 it's a little different, but I like it.

    If you and your users are satisfied with this version, than you don't need to upgrade it, but Vbulletin will not force you to upgade?

    Although its really complicated or confusing to navigate, we have to deal our self with vb4 because most of the improvements in the forum will be done in vb4.
