Hello from Finland to all.   

This is really weird 1st post to new forum. But this is just something what came in to my mind.

You are giving new "Unlimited key" to us old Premium users via 1st login to new site. Well, this is a good thing.

And maybe my actual question wasn't an issue even in DVDP 2.4/2.5. So ....

Unfortunately there is a bad people in the world and login system to almost every program and web has been cracked.
Do you (Invelos) have good solution how to prevent illegal usage for "Unlimited key" so that not an any a..holes can't use keygens to get several "Unlimited keys" and start to screw up the system ???

This is related to this new great feature "Contribution of profiles and cover images, and voting on those contributions are now available only to DVD Profiler Unlimted registrants."

Those bad profile contribution was an big issue in DVDP 2.4/2.5 and I'm just little concerned will those times be an history or not.

There are several key generators for DVD Profiler and none of them generate keys that validate properly.  The program appears to accept them but it know's they're invalid, and we can tell the difference.

I think the DVDP is still small enough to maintain a list/database table with all keys ever given out. If there's a key which maches the "signature" but isn't in the list it's a made up one.

Cool. Does the program then send Ninja "enforcers" to the perpetrator(s) location?

Not exactly, but they may find their premium options frequently "unsetting" for no particular reason.

And that differs from any other Windows program... how? 

BTW, seems to me that the screeners (I guess that's just you and Gerri now?) have slowed down - I have contributions from yesterday that still shows just "Received"...
