The goal of the website is to provide Nokia Symbian mobile phone users and developers a wiki style website were they can find easy free open-source software! With easy I mean that visitors can downloads applications, games and/or other software without lots of Ads and other non related information. Ofcourse the succes of this website will mainly depend on you! Who will join me to setup and fill this new website. Looking forward to all your posts!

Link to the new site is SymbianBrew

Website upgrade

This evening i have upgraded my website.

The following changes were implemented:
– Because of a misunderstandment (1) 🙁 Google has disabled my Adsense Ads account. I hope we can resolve this issue soon. In the mean time i switched over to AdBrite Ads.
– Added AdBrite Ads banner to lower part of my website.
– Added AdBrite inline Ads.
– Added AdBrite banners to right sidebar.
– Added anti spam key word to comments input area. Reduce spam with 99%. 🙂
– Added category links to left sidebar for easy data access.
– Updated existing wordpress plugins to latest available version.

(1) My letter to Google Adsense after my account was disabled. After reading today for the first time the Terms & Conditions (During setup, two months ago, I just accepted the license agreement) I now understand want I did accidentally wrong. I was really under the impression that clicking on Ads was allowed if you are really interested in the goods/services with were offered. That was the ONLY reason that I clicked on it. I am terrible sorry that I accidentally violated with this behavior the Adsense Terms & Conditions. It was really not my intention. As you also can read on my website (www.plaatsoft.nl) all the Ads earnings are donated to a Christian non profit organization “Compassion International”. It is in no means for my own personal benefit. I hope with this background information you will reconsider to reactivated my Adsense account again. Wants again I am very sorry that I course Google (and Google customers) any problems. It was not my intention and I hope that we can restart doing business. Best Regards
