    WWWTHREADS bought by Infopop! Now called UBBThreads

    Just wanted to let everyone know that WWWThreads forum software has been sold to Infopop. They have no immediate plan to support a Perl version and are sticking to the PHP version.

    http://www.infopop.com

    Prices are now outrageous for any smaller web pages...
    License Fee $229
    Annual Support $299/$399(*)
    Single Support $179
    New Install $199
    Upgrade Install $149
    Transfer Install $499
    Member Area Renewal $125

    If you are a registered owner prior to this sale, you at least get a 75% discount on renewal fees and do not need to purchase a new license.

    I hope Infopop can keep up the support like the original. It would be sad to see such a great program go downhill.

    AH, I don't see how trying to sell copies of that could be profitable

    What with all the free boards around nowadays... UltraBoard, phpBB (soon phpBB2), Ikonboard(New release coming out soon), XMB forums, etc..

    All those are ad-free, and just as customizable and reliable.. and even with vBulletin which costs a lot less.. I could even imagine that big companies would have their own forum software developed for them to be absolutely perfect for their needs..

    It took me 3 months of research to decide on this forum package. I also tried to find better in the past 7 or 8 months for another smaller web page, but could not come close to the possibility that this package offers.

    It is great for very large forum boards and well worth that money. but the smaller guy like me would be scre@@d at the new pricing.
