Third party offers will be presented with Opt-In projects only

By Community Team

In an effort to address a number of concerns we have been hearing from
the media and community at large, we at SourceForge would like to note
that we have stopped presenting third party offers for unmaintained
SourceForge projects.

While we had recently tested presenting easy-to-decline third party
offers with a very small number of unmaintained SourceForge projects,
we discontinued this practice promptly based on negative community
feedback.  At this time, we present third party offers only with a few
projects where it is explicitly approved by the project developer, or
if the project is already bundling third party offers.

As a company, we at SourceForge pride ourselves on being highly
responsive to our community members and, with that in mind, do our
best to respond to all communications and address all concerns in a
timely manner. We encourage anyone that would like additional
information about our practices or specific issues they have  to reach
out to us directly by using the “Help” link in the header of the
SourceForge site, which provides contact information for our Support
team and which will ensure any questions or issues you may have are
resolved in an efficient manner. As usual feel free to contact us also at [email protected]
