    D3SCENE selling out??

    Hey everyone, its been such a long time since my last "true" visit here and I have noticed many things have changed since. For one, the giant banner at the top of the screen. Very disappointing because 1, it is just a way for people to blow real money on a foreign company, not a single person, although the many hackers of D3 arent different in goals such as with maphacks for various games and such, it just has a different "feel" to it and not some company coming in and buying D3 out. Another thing is I have noticed more ads throughout my various pop-ins, as I like to call them. Although D3scene is still awesome, and I will always love it, and the community, I feel it is become more of a thing for the money, rather than something put in here for hackers/gamers to unite with one another with a great international community and active mods and such. Although I was never a big contributer, I still enjoyed visiting the site and posting what little things I could and offering free services to try to make up for my leeching, it does certainly feel less like it used to. Any opinions on this??

    I just use ad blocking software. D3scene remains normal to me. xD

    But hey, they gotta make money somehow.

    Ads pay for the site silly. Members dont see the Ad unless you are not logged in. The banner at the top I believe is an affiliate .. not a company buying us out.

    If I am wrong, correct me ...

    Well how else do you expect them to keep the site running? They have bills to pay for and if you want that maphack/cheat, it shouldn't worry you that ads are there. Feel free to pay the $ to keep the site alive if you don't like it.

    Ads are good!
    Members are being slack tho most of them are only here to get what they want and piss off
    Not even posting a thank you to people that put hard work into Threads...
    I think we need a major clean up on the website separate the respectable members and the leeching members...
    What I mean by this is make sure that the leechers can only see what is on the threads but not actually be able to see links and attachments, So they are forced to be an active member in D3. Active members should atleast have more then 100 posts
