just one question.

1. Can I still download 3.8 upgrade without signing up to adsense?

Edit: I just read the thread at .com that it is an opt-in thing. And the files will only be included if people choose to opt-in. Ignore this post.

Edit: Okay, I have another question. What is stopping Jelsoft in the future from adjusting Partners share of revenue? to say 10%. They are stating now they are not taking or making any revenue from anyone that opts-in but never stated in the future if this will be the case? Also, because the staff at .com have emphasized that this feature is for people who are new to websites that don't know what they are doing and jelsoft decide to take a slice of the percentage won't this affect existing members who decided to opted in from the start and decide they don't want to share their revenue and opt out?

For people who arent aware of the in and outs of setting this if jelsoft decide to take a slice of the percentage it's worrying to think that many people that opted in will be looking for other alternatives and loose revenue and are left in the lurch because they don't know what the heck they are doing which jelsoft have claimed for the reason of setting this feature the way they did.

I am running a big forum with a lot of mods and a customized style installed. Are you saying that it won't be usefull to use this style when I upgrade to 3.8.0? If I revert all templates, I bet the style and some of the mods will stop working right? Is it better for me to change styles (a 3.8.0 made style) when upgrading?

Sorry for the many questions but I hope someone can give me some clearity.

Thank you in advance.

Would all you quit whining, moaning, defending and hating this adsense crap and answer BozzaJos question...quoted above...

If nobody will noticed it , you had no intention to inform your customers. Thats not the correct way to deal with your customers and Jelsoft never acted like this in past.
The next concern is what are the more things that hidden behind new releases ?

I never thought Jelsoft do such things hiddenly in order to get more money !!

The confidential of customers on your company is NOT important for you ??

What kind of deal is this ?

wow - I was wondering why this super new feature that there hasn't been many requests for was suddenly implemented.

This is how it feels to be monetized!

i'm sure there was no real need to implement it, that's why it's an opt-in... but due to the number of download of all these AdSense hacks on vb.org, i would say Jelsoft needed a solution, and IB found it... Jelsoft itself would be too small to have a need for this integration, it is time consuming,,,

It would be sleazy if they took any of YOUR revenue. It would be sleazy if you where required to have an Ad Sens account to download 3.8. As it is, it's entirely optional, and not really any different that what you have to do to set up an adsense account to begin with.

Seems you guys are looking for deceptiveness around ever corner.

Since 3.7 is will see End of Life fairly soon, will vB.org be upgrading to 3.8 in the near future?

Some people (some more than others ) Just like to stir up the pot about everything. I honestly don't see what the big deal is about this. If you don't want to use the new feature you don't have it, it's pretty simple.

There seems to be this consensus that if a new version comes out, and if it doesn't actually loose features, then it must be a secret plot to either steal people information.

What are you talking about buddy ? you think vb staff will earn money from our ads ? I think they require that info to get access to our account ... thats all .. ( thats what i think .. please correct me if i m wrong )

I know what the secret plot is! Obama is working with Google, Jelsoft and other forum companies to take a cut out of all the ad profits to save the stock markets. It makes sense!

Don't forget Jelsoft's secret connections to William Ayers.

If i have access to hundreds of boards adsense statistics ( keywords , high paying adds etc ) , i can build the most succesfull forum out there for advertisement revenue very easily with a little investment. Internet Brands's main revenue is from advertisement. When you put these 2 factors next to each other you can clearly see that the strategy has nothing to do with helping members.

Plus the important factor me and other members are complaining about is , Internet Brands tried to hide this very important truth. Which is a huge privacy concern as everyone trusted Jelsoft ( at least till IB took the control ) . They may not read the Google warning so they would not be aware of such important thing.

They surely can try to make affliate money. There is nothing wrong about it . But they should at least tell the customers the truth of it. Trying to hide is not a trustworth company act.
