GeN4 is in the Works
August 16, 2009

Yes…Yes..and Yes…You’re not dreaming, GeN4 is really in the works. The plan was to release new revisions of GeN3 and slowly add things, but we changed our mind. After the bugs in GeN3 were addressed, it became apparent that the next step was to add new features that would blow you away- we decided to just revamp the whole thing, all at once. All GeN3 customers will be able to upgrade for free .

What’s new?

Beautiful new design for the user side as well as admin area.

1. Sleek and modern design.
2. Everything is re-designed, including the forums, members area, ad panel, and all pages.

Multiple Layers of protection for users and administrators.
User:
1. Pin code required for all purchases and cashouts, set by the user at first login.
2. Secondary password optional.
3. User can see last IP to login to their account, the location of the IP.
4. User can optionally lock the account to only work for certain IPs/IP Ranges.
5. Other security measures also added, such as forcing users to validate all emails used. (includes account email, PP and AP emails)
6. Admin can choose to block cashouts and purchases by an account if any of the emails were changed in the last X hours.
7. Many more features which I’ll leave for you to discover.

Admin:
1. Control who can visit the site and access admin area by countries and Ips.
