Lots of news this week! First up something everyone loves to hear about - Special offers and free stuff!
First up our new Loyalty System fully comes into effect today - this means for every 5000 loyalty points you have ($500 spent) you will receive a free $5 from us to spend on whatever you like. If you are at 10,000 points or more you received an extra $10 on top of this. Furthermore everyone who has ever spent $100 or more at DBTech now receives a loyalty discount.
We are testing various special offers this month to see what type you guys like best, and this week is Build Your Own Bundle. You get to choose from lifetime licenses of 11 different mods: Gallery, vBShout, Threadmins, Thread Ratings, vBAnswers, vBArcade, Advanced Registration, vBSlider, vBAnalytics, vBForms & Ajax Threads.
You pick as few as 4 mods and as many as all 11 and you get 40% off of them all. This special offer will run for 1 week, until Midnight GMT on Friday 18th January. You can access the bundle by clicking here, or using the "Custom Bundles" tab on the homepage. Even better? This bundle will give DOUBLE loyalty points this week.
We also have several mod updates released this week, the biggest of which is Advanced Registration v2. Version 2 adds the ability to check if people are using proxies to register, the ability to make custom links to send users to different registration pages and being able to whitelist certain IP addresses from the redirect feature amongst other things. Read all about it here.
Draft Posts v1.0.1 has been released bringing new features such as the ability to save a draft from a new thread and more, plus a few bug fixes. Read more here.
vBQuiz v1.2.6 has been released, bringing a multitude of fixes.
vBDonate v1.4.1 is out now, bringing a number of fixes & changes.
In other news, Jon aka Pandemikk has left the team due to changes in his personal circumstances. DragonByte Technologies wishes him all the best in his future endeavours. His mods have been taken over by lead coder Fillip Hannisdal (Belazor)

Several more vB5 Ports in the coming months
Hopefully you guys are enjoying all the deals these past few weeks! The PWYW deal didn't go as well as we would have liked - the vast majority of users chose to pay the minimum for the mod, making it a non-viable choice for most mods. I might run another one in the future with a higher minimum though, we will see.
Jon has left the team due to a change in his personal circumstances that would make it impossible for him to continue his work with DBTech. Fillip has taken over his mods and has already released an update to Advanced Registration v2.
The response to the first survey was very positive and we have decided to send out a site-wide version to get a broader range of opinions. All customers who have "receive admin emails" ticked as yes will receive a link to a survey.
We're on track to launch the site redesign (and our vB5 pro mods!) by the end of the month. It's looking great already and I can't wait to let you guys use it.
As always I look forward to your comments and feedback below ladies and gentlemen!
