    Site Revenue?

    This topic comes up once again.

    The theme overhaul that we promised is slowly in order. Unfortunately, lack of site revenue strikes again.

    I've been thinking about this for a while, but I'm not sure whether to enable ads or do affiliate marketing or what. Please feel free to write your feedback on whatever is on your mind regarding this topic.

    I wouldn't mind advertisements, as long as they're not obnoxious or too distracting. I'll be happy with whatever you decide on to keep this wonderful forum going. ^^

    Well, I don't really mind ads, as long as they not NSFW or just pop up everywhere. Do what you think is best.


    Nothing much happening right now, isn't it?

    Ads are fine. ( when they are not on pop-ups )

    Just issue an official statement deterring people from abusing ads-clicking. If they like the product, they should go on and inform themselves, but forcefully clicking ads is bad.
    Generally a normal user thinks " I'll click this advertisement tons for the greter good of this fine website ".
    Then, comes google adsense that blacklists the site.

    What you think is best for the forum is a good option. I personally think the happy medium, something not too obnoxious/interfering but something that will and should be noticeable, is a good general idea.

    insider news: "Saya is the only one in the mod team that is strongly against Ads"
    so when the forums says ads are ok, the flood gates be open

    Re: Site Revenue?

    1. Can the forum reliably sustain itself on ads?
    1.1 If so, how much ads are we talking about?
    2. If not, what proportion of the forums' operating budget is expected to come from ads?

    I personally don't care about ads either way, but everything's about costs and benefits. What proportion of the user-base supports it, and what/who would you lose (if any) if the forum ends up deploying ads?
