Thanks for your reply. Actually I called function as below.

p1 = predict(object, newdata, dimen=1)
p2 = predict(object, newdata, dimen=1, method=debiased)
p3 = predict(object, newdata, dimen=1, method="predictive")

The MAP classification of prediction results by any method are the same. I know what the method "plug-in" and "debiased" mean, but what does the "vague prior" for the method "predictive" mean? what is "vague" here?

Thank you,
Shengzhe
