The problem is that this system don't promote development of other apps as ex ip.gallery. At last system I was renewing additional apps where there was any significant updates that makes them better. IP.Board is for me the only part of the suite that is supported and changes are really good but ex. ip.blog is virtually not changing over time (nothing important) and ip.gallery is changing to even worst that previous versions - and ip.staff seems not listening customers complaints about that (ex cattegories issue and others).
But now I will have to buy all apps even if there are not really good or important changes there - i can opt for not buy them, but ex. after 5months I will have to pay the same amount as now and have acces to it for only 1 month - PERFECT.
What I understood is in future I can not even use new version of IP.Board with not much older version of ip.gallery even if changes in gallery are so tiny that it wont cause compability issues.
Grate idea to rip off customers from their money for something that they wouldn't normally buy.
By the way Invision deactivate my suite and they trying to say that I did it by mistake. Waiting for single answer to a ticket takes so long that I've started to worry that their error would be solved before my suite really expire. :)
If you want to get more money just raise the price! not complicate system - making people think that the renewal (reactivation) price is for 6months - which is true only in one day out of 180.
