Ad payments are made quarterly and sent out 60 days after the end of quarter for partners who reached the $100 minimum threshold. The payments for Q3 should go out around November 30th.
Regarding Ads: We have been integrating new systems, and are working hard to resolve payment delays. Our goal is to establish a system in which all payments are distributed with accuracy, and in a timely manner. Future questions about advertising revenue may be directed to **********.
If they know the payments are going to be late, why not send out some emails or, at the very least, make a post here? I know not all developers would see it, but a lot would and they've made similar posts about other payment delays/issues in the past.
