Weird front page news

Anyone else notice the weird gambling news-piece on the front page? I don't see any threads talking about it but it's definitely weird (probably a bot post?). It was posted on the 24th of December. Forgive me if this has already been discussed.

I remember there being some kind of message on eduke32.com saying that an online gambling website was a sponsor, so this could be related to that. I can't find it now though and could be mis-remembering. If it is some kind of paid advertising, I don't mind them doing it a few times a year if they get some decent cash from it.

Btw we should probably remove the ad to buy Duke 3D from GOG that's still on eduke32.com...

Micky is correct. We were offered a nominal amount for the post and we accepted on the condition that it'd appear lower on the page, which is why it's backdated to December 24. TX and I split costs which covers domain costs over the last several years.

I love Duke4.net. It's one of my life's proudest accomplishments. I'm proud of the community we have built here and the beautiful work that comes out of it every day. I'm proud of the friends I've made here and the kind people who made all of this possible with their hard work, donations, and participation. Thank you.
