Some of you might wonder where our humble bundle donations went, or why more nice people aren't joining from them.

Apparently the folks at humble bundle have censored our leaderboard listings. They're still there, under the name Anonymous. ($105 on the monthly bundle and $61 on the weekly bundle).

I'm currently trying to sort out a refund, as if they aren't fine with displaying an anime forum in their listings, I'd rather give the money to someone else.

The whole ordeal has thoroughly pissed me off, and they can expect nothing but bare minimum purchases from me in the future.

That's a shame, we've been having a nice influx of new members join just from that advertisement alone. If they do continue to censor the name, I really do hope you can at least get a partial refund back.

I don't think there's anything I can do if I don't get a refund, although I haven't touched any of the keys I got with it, so that might help me get a refund for it.

If I do get a refund, I'll likely use it to fund a H artist's patreon.

They've already refunded the purchases. c:

I'm not so pissed anymore, props to them on a speedy refund.

Wow, that was quick and efficient. So they won't allow advertisements for the forum in the future, though?

Idk, they didn't really say anything about it.

They're not really an advertising agency, they just display top donations. Apparently they wouldn't accept lewd.sx as a top donator, even though they've accepted things like botting shops in the past.

Could be for the same reason Deviantart rejected our advertising, that they deem the site inappropriate without giving it a glance over.

Probably has to do with the name itself, it could be a turn off for people who don't like giving anything more than a first look.

Probably. I might try again in the future, with a redirecting "less conspicuous" URL.

When I first saw the banner ad, I actually thought the site was hentai-oriented so it really piqued my attention that way.
If you'd like to use the hackneyed phrase, I came for the lewd and stayed for the community. The URL is misleading to a degree. Changing it would obviously be overkill, so the redirecting url would be best imo.

I guess my point is that people what see the url are probably just expecting a porn forum :T

I'd just like to say that I'm very disappointed that this didn't turn out to be a porn forum.

But I got my porn section, so I can deal.

Well, hentai section to be honest. What? Did you expect a forum called Lewd to not have a hentai section? Silly.

I'm not really sure how Senpai set it up, but if you qualify to see it, you'll... Well.. See it.

I got my money back, just means I got free advertising for 12 hours :smile:

I'm going to be spending what I got back on more advertising.

So they labelled us as a porn site without even minimal fact-checking?

They'll only be getting the minimum possible from me in the future.

Well, they did give a full refund, and apparently a quick one at that. I think they handled it okay, to be honest.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

Your standards are really low.  "Wow, they didn't steal my money and ruin their reputation for no reason." They're still pieces of shit, just not thieving pieces of shit.

I don't think they're that bad. It was a bit uncalled for to remove the name, but all's well that ends well.

Eh, tbh; I got my refund and I'm content with that. It does suck that they've labeled us as something that needs censoring though.

Well to be honest, they never mentioned URL's in names are allowed. If they had a rule against that in their policy, they could have just taken your money and still censored it.
They're not really meant for advertising, so you can't expect nothing like that from them.

Good for you that they gave you your money back.
