I can appreciate your points. I am just pointing out the email was more broad speaking on the fact vbalbums is not a gallery and vbgallery can replace vbalbums giving you more flexibility and features. The one big drawback we heard from our customers was the profile area issues and we did not blend in with the profile tab things like vbalbums did. Now vbgallery albums can be public or private. I really do not beleive that email dealt with other vbulletin functionality such as the social networking aspects of vbulletin. The email gave pictures and examples of the new functionality we added in respects to the profile.
Now rest assured Photopost will continuously move forward to provide you with the best possible products as we always listen to customers wishes and add the functionality they wish. Users that participate in our beta programs know this. One just needs to be patient because not everything can be added into a program that everyone wishes when they want. Now that vbGallery for example includes the profile stuff I would definately expect that more flexible album permissions etc can be looked into. Feel free to post any suggestions in the vbgallery suggestion forum. I know since we just released vbGallery 2.5 Photopost Pro is next for a beta cycle but we will be back to vbGallery next.
