Dont see the point of paying, what will it achieve?

Forum is hosted for free, developers and software are open source, is it to pay for developers? Last time money was mentioned regarding Mod purchase it caused a bit of upset.

Corey made some good points, he admitted time is at a premium, especially with family and the time of year. Also good point of people using other types of social media. SMF discussed in another thread forked from yabb, obviously the right choice, now yabb is playing catchup.

In principle I'm against paying for open source software that should remain free.

On the other hand, it's not uncommon for me to support free software by sending a payment for its use; sometimes paying multiple times with ongoing payments.
  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Dear YaBB users,

Please visit the poll I have created --- Will you commit to buying a licensed version of YaBB 3 when it's available? --- on the YaBB 3 Development Forum.

Guest votes are allowed, so you don't have to be registered for the dev forum to vote.

Please vote for two reasons...

1. To show your support (or lack thereof) for YaBB 3, and;
2. To help test the Poll system on the YaBB 3 Development Forum.

In case you haven't registered for the dev forum and you do vote, some comment on the below would also be appreciated...

If you will purchase a licensed version, thank you! I'm sure all the hard-working YaBB developers and contributors will appreciate your support and encouragement.   Wink

If not, why not?

If maybe, what would it take to encourage you to purchase a licensed version and help keep YaBB going into the future?

Thanks in advance for your comments and votes!
