I made a big amount of money with rude from about 7th months. Now because of noobs that followed exactly the steps from that youtube spamming post everything is fucked up. But i want to tell you another thing. If you guys ruined everything at least try to repair what you did. How? It's simple. The new system is buggy and it doesn't count all conversions. Maybe this is a trick from rude to keep some money in their pocket. I don't know exactly why is this happening but i know for sure that not all confirmed accounts are counted as "conversions". Four confirmed accounts from 5 are not counted as conversions and you don't receive any money from those accounts. I tested this and it's true. Just test it by yourself. So what to do? Make 5-6 accounts by your own (don't forget to change every time your ip, email address, and to clear your browser cache before creating a new account), make a screenshot with your confirmed accounts and your stats page to show that you are ripped off. Post them on rude board in the performers section and ask them to make something about this. Do not send emails to the admins, make everything public if you want a real effect. Maintain that topic active all the time till they fix this. In about a week it will be fixed if everyone is complaining. Don't try to ask them to put the old system back. It will never happen believe me. But you can make money like before if the actual system is working like they tells you it should work. Your earnings are going down not because of that opt-in change, because people is still confirming their accounts, is going down because rude rip off your real conversions (confirmed emails). I know that for sure and now you know it either.
