Blog Recovery

Yes, as the title read, I managed to recover my so long lost blog I am so happy and sooooo happy and happy and happy again. Wuhuuuu! This blog has been existed since year 2005 (when and where I was that time.. hmmm). This is my first entry, immediately after recovery. I actually totally forgotten about it but then again, I want to create a new blog, but unable to register mayor21, what?? Somebody used my name? Oh God!

I decided to visit this person's mayor21 blog and 1st thing appeared is "Push 2 Talk". Hmm.. this one is so familiar to me! Coz I had a blog (oh God, how many blog that she had before.. sigh) previously under Xanga (yupp, one of my earliest one, not sure whether still available or not) that I named Push 2 Talk. Aha!! This blog actually mine, but still not recovered yet.

I tried and tried and tried again with different login name and same password (ahah, this girl got same password for her blog.. wahaha, dangerous!) until I came across the look up thing (not sure this thing exist until that moment). So I put this blog name and wallaaa!! Email sent to my gmail account (thank God not my long lost, non existed email account) mentioning about my real user name for this blog (just a little twist from what I have now, good ol days). Tried login the blog with my current account and of course, mission accomplished!

Now I manage to get them out of my chest! Hooray!!

Nuffnang Email!

Ni email nuffnang! So kawan2, kene la take note ok. Jgn sampai kene blacklisted or terminated. You have been warned!

Dear Nuffnangers,

As you might already know, there are 2 different types of campaigns from Nuffnang: Metered (mCPM) Campaigns , which pay according to the number of visitors who see the ads; and Cost-Per-Click (CPC) campaigns, which pay bloggers based on the number of clicks generated on the ads.

It has come to our attention that certain groups have been committing click fraud, which is defined as clicking on CPC advertisements intentionally just to generate earnings for a blog's owner. Do note that this act is an abuse of our Terms & Conditions under Section 6.

Banner ads are only supposed to be clicked on if the viewer is interested to find out more about the advertising campaign, and not for the intention of earning extra money. Should this situation worsen, the frequency of ad campaigns might be significantly reduced as we'll only be able to sell ad spaces on blogs with no click fraud record.

Our system is capable of tracking these illegal actions which are documented and if necessary, be used as evidence for any legal purposes. In the past, Nuffnang has suspended and banned various individuals and groups for committing this offence. However, as the number of bloggers who commit this selfish act has been growing in an alarming rate within our community, we're forced to be more vigilant and will take necessary action to ensure our other members of the community who do not engage in such act to suffer in the long run.

If you are aware of any of your friends or anyone who have been engaging in such acts, we would appreciate it if you could kindly advise them to refrain from doing so, as bloggers who are caught engaging in click fraud activities will be punished severely, either by suspension or termination.

Thank you for your attention.
