UPDATE

 

Hi Guys 

 

Sorry for the silence on this situation it is a little out of order i must admit. Ok so let me explain what has been going on over the past few months. So you know AppAddict is porvided free to the community and was primarily funded by Google ads, we used to recieve just enough to cover all the massive server costs that our operation incurs.

 

Last moth we had a real battle with Google and basically they revoked our right to display adverts as you are probably aware due to not seeing google ads on the site anymore. Not only that but they refused to pay us the last 2 months of advert revenue which put us in an even worse position. So basically they have withheld about £6k from us. This is all money that was to repay server bills that i myself for out for upfront as Google always pay behind.

 

Because of all this things like iTunes vouchers and iPads Air for prizes have had to wait, i say wait as i would not dream of saying that you guys can not get your prizes im not like that i wouldnt rip people off, but i hope you understand that my main priority is to keep AppAddict afloat and until we find and implement an advert provider that gets us similar income to Google the prizes will have to wait for now.

 

Obviously this is my main priority at the moment as AppAddict as of now is coming all from my own pocket and whilst i dont mind as this is how it was in the begining AA costs alot more now as more servers have been required over the past year. I only have limited suply of money that will dry up eventually.

 

So again many many apologies for the situation and the lack of updating you guys, i really hope you all do understand and i will get AA back on track.

I am very sorry to hear that Google screwed you.  I guess the part that pisses me off the most is that you states several times the ipad was sitting there in a box at your house and would be shipped the next day.  Obviously that was bullshit.  I told my son he would be getting the ipad when it came.  Should be a fun conversation about how even though Chronix said he would send me a photo of it sitting there it never was real.  I get you have to take care of your big picture, I really do get that.  Just to say that it is right there instead of being straight up with me is pretty sketch.  Hope all is well for your future, you already said many times you were doing well so I hope that continues. God bless, Nogud247

@ichronix bro, £6k / U$D10,000 / 16.14 BTC  is a lot of money to lose.... so the hard financial situation is understandable... no offense or anyhting but to trust google ads so much was a bit of a mistake.... they are well known for doing this sort of thing... but appaddict may have taken a small hit.. but it is nowhere near defeated... at least until not even porn sites will advertise on here......

Uhh can we maybe not? Since this is supposed to be appropriate for the general audience and there was that argument over banning BU and other hosts for similar ads.

Yes the iPad was sat in my house for sometime and had i have had time to send you would have actually got that, but as it was not sent and we had the news from google i had to sell that on to cover some server costs, I have photos i can send you, i have no reason to lie i also have apple invoices for iPad Airs i can show you. The only reason the postage was delayed was due to me moving home. Like i have said I'm not saying you can't have the iPad Air, I'm merely stating you will have to wait till i get the adverts situation sorted out and till we are back on an even keel. 

 

 

Here is there invoices anyway not that i should have to prove myself

There will be no hard core ads ever on here i would rather pay my own pocket than that, but i have too noticed some soft core I'm not too happy with.

 

Im waiting for a new ad provider to optimise a campaign for us, it is all sounding promising so fingers crossed.

You need ad provider which supports SSL because ads do not show at the moment unless you allow unsafe content.

well let me just say I was being a bit funny/sarcastic, in all seriousness, I think it is best to avoid all porn/pornish ads as much as possible, but given the choice between aa with porn ads or aa shutting down ... well Idk bout everyone else, but the answers pretty obvious to me.. ..

... anyhow yes like in the last two months there have been a bunch is softcore style ads that aren't for pron sites necessarily but for dating and Thai women (maybe one of them can translate ;) lol) ...personally I don't mind them tho it can be a bit awkward in a public place lol,.. but I understand others feelings on this as ten year old kids really do use appaddict.. (tho idk bout forums).... and yeah there are a bunch more ad providers that are more proffesional than bpd4sp or whatever is in place now.. plus it would be good to get some ads for iphone unlock websites and legit stuff people on appaddict may actually be interested in...

 

...but at least we dont have c0smicalninja style ads LOL... him profiting from refferals from the banner ad he added on the forum he admins LOL!

Bro i do feel bad as you said to your Kid, i actually feel like sending you my own personal iPad as i don't use it to be that truth full no time. Just give me a few weeks to get things on track. I will never ever turn around and say you can have it. That also goes for all winners waiting for iTunes vouchers.

 

To be clear i wont send you mine as you are entitled to a brand new boxed sealed one, was just stating that as thats how bad i actually do feel about this situation

This was one of the reasons i was not online so much as i dont like to deal with situations like this is has been stressful and i have not known the best way to address it. I don't like to let people down either, i do feel better now everything is out in the open. And please rest assured that winners will get their rightful prizes, late i appreciate but will still come.

today idk why, i clicked this banner ad on the forums:

IN000159-U0001076-C00005574-B000008597-K

 

it opens this link, asking u to download - http://www.flappy-bi...6b734213f947dbf - and then this waringn appears

well one thing is those dating site ads, which MAY lead you to get an STD (if ur lucky to get a date and then laid LOLz) , but this much more likely can potentially harm someones computer... usually those dumb downloaders that are advertised in fake download buts are bad.. but this ad looks pretty seroius... i mean what repututation would it give aa if an ad like this f*cked up someones computer... but TRUE only a complete idiot would install this sh*t but trust me there are complete idiots LOL... bringing in co-puters f *cked up from clicking sh*t like this LOL... but then again as  kakarot1925 said "then again 90% of the things you DL from an ad are viruses" and if this is necesarry during these hard time so be it.. but if possible i would prefer not to see these at least on the forums....
