Did you pull your extension from the Google Store?

It was suspended following some complaints from a user. I'm working to bring it back as soon as possible. Has the fact it was suspended caused any problems?

EDIT
The reason it got suspended was that it didn't comply with the following:
"Ads must be presented in context with your app or clearly state which app they are bundled with. Ads must also be easily removable by either adjusting the settings or uninstalling the app(s) altogether. Ads may not simulate or impersonate system notifications or warnings."
I needed to reinstall and saw it missing from the store.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience!
You can download it from the following link and install it manually with drag & drop in Chrome's extensions management window (chrome://extensions/)

I'll let you know when it's back online in the Webstore with a comment on this thread.

Best Regards,

Manual reinstallation worked fine for me.

@Ionut, would you care to explain why Google suspended it? What changes are you being forced to make?

Hi Andy,

The reason (as noted above), was that it didn't comply with the following:
"Ads must be presented in context with your app or clearly state which app they are bundled with. Ads must also be easily removable by either adjusting the settings or uninstalling the app(s) altogether. Ads may not simulate or impersonate system notifications or warnings."

My guess (since they didn't give any details, just a quote from the ToS) is that adding a mention like "EcoLinks enabled by Window Resizer" next to the modified links would be enough (similar to the "Ads by Google" mention in Adsense).
Update: I found the complaint details here (of which you have already been involved) : http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/chrome/mlAD1ygc0v0/Cc7IrHdmE5AJ

For other readers, the complaint is about EcoLinks. I too hope that EcoLinks is *Disabled By Default* upon installation, or removed from the extension completely.
The extension is back in the webstore, without the EcoLinks and with a new bug that I just noticed (probably related to the recent Chrome v.32 update).
