In November, 4471 new users signed up. Wow! Hard to believe, huh? So all the great programs on the site are getting at least SOME attention. I just think it's sad that I only saw about 30 fresh faces at most being active in the forum, so there are 4441 left that need to take some action. Yes, I'm talking about YOU!.
On a side note, the "Male to Female Ratio" in the forum now is 16.6:1. So, if you have any friends that use their PC more than once a day, forward this newsletter to them, especially female friends.
A good way (but of course no must) to get started is to choose a nice avatar image in your forum profile:http://www.donationc...file;sa=forumProfile
Or you might like to post a little bit about who you are and where you're from on these threads: http://www.donationc...p?topic=124.0?ref=nl http://www.donationc...p?topic=797.0?ref=nl06) Hot forum threads07) New changes to license key policy
In response to user suggestions, we have modified the license key policy as follows:
- programs will no longer stop working after the license period. They will only show startup reminder nags when a freeware license "expires."
- non-donators can generate a 6-month license key twice. After that period (1 year), they can visit the page and generate permanent non-expiring license keys that will never require them to generate another key or see another nage.
- there is also now an option for people who do not wish to sign up at the forum to download license keys
