G'day, user3726, and thank you for your interest in Kunena.

I think the main question you've asked is answered in the topic Please help me understand the GPL for Kunena . From what you have said, though, I do not see any issues here as far as using Kunena in a website where there is a some opportunity for obtaining revenue via advertisements. Whether or not there are other implications relating to how you could classify your site as "non-commercial", that's probably where your accountant/financial advisor/taxation consultant can advise you better. As long as you keep to the conditions of the GPL I don't think there are any legal issues involving the owners of the Kunena copyrighted software or the Kunena trademark.

Concerning the last visit date, see Last Visit Date .

*** Off-topic ***

CAPTCHA is used on many forums around the world today and the reason that is is use is not an indication of any inherent software deficiency. CAPTCHA is used to deter spam ... but it does not totally eliminate it. You may not see CAPTCHA used on other forums you use but no-one can draw any conclusions from that either.
