Title: No More Forum Ads
Post by: Kayin on April 05, 2013, 05:03:19 pm
Google is hassling me because ya'll a bunch of greasy perverts (I'm so proud) and honestly the forums generate me like 2 dollars a month (which is like, nothing compared to the main site ads) and honestly they're ugly and I kinda hate ads anyways even though I need them. But heck, why punish my most adoring fans for 2 dollars?

If any of you feel at all guilty (you shouldn't) you can toss me a buck or two on the donation tab and I'll totally buy like, a soda or a burger or something with it or something.

I can't wait till I release Brave Earth and you guys buy something from me and I'm not tricking people to click ads or something.

Does this mean that NSFW material can be posted onto the main boards again, or are we still hiding that separate board to "shield and protect the innocent youth that unsuspectingly use the internet"?

YES. PORN EVERYWHERE.

Within reason. Pfft but what do I care whatever the mods/admins decide.

Now I feel bad for having AdBlock on.

Well boys, if this doesn't get us to be more active on here then I really don't know what could.

Oh awesome. Thank you Kayin!
Although I do have adblock plus on. >.> (I hardly even feel bad.)
I wonder how much more Kayin would make if any of us actually clicked/saw the ads?

Look like the earnings depend on various factors, but a decent $0.10 would probably end up being a lot.

With google ads, clicks matter orders of magnitude more than impressions. So generally speaking, someone running adblock isn't a big deal because that person is probably never going to click ads. Also probably why google kinda didn't care about stuff like adblock (though they've finally started freaking out a bit) -- those users are lost causes anyways. I imagine if anything, they're reacting now because stuff like youtube video ads work differently and probably DO have an impression model But whatever!
