Whenever I go to the front page here there are these 2 huge vertical banner ads that always pop up on the screen, regardless of the fact that I'm logged in at the time.

If I log into the forums from my phone there is a ad that takes up half the screen for bathroom fixtures of all things :smt013

It seems a little excessive. :smt102

I don't really mind them. Jude was telling me the other day that the Outhouse is getting to the point now where him and Blue can accept lesser roles at work and supplement their life with the amount the site earns on the side which is fantastic. At the end of the day would you rather Blue/Jude/Simian take home a couple of hundred dollars a week or you have less ads?

:lol:: You fucking liar.

Last month, me and Blue chipped in $40 each to pay the leftover due on the hosting bill. The bill has been supplemented a lot by various people over the years, including Lord Simian, BK Thomson, Me, Blue, and occasionally others. :lol:

Personally, I would like to run a Kickstarter campaign to pay the site bills for a year and just do away with all but the project wonderful ads.

Ultimately, all of this is eltopo's fault for getting us banned from Google Adsense with a thread about poop.

I don't have the mobile ad problem though - AFAIK there are no ads on the mobile site.

I'd happily chip in to a Kickstarter.

The thing with web hosting bills too is that you can save almost half the cost if you pay yearly as opposed to monthly. So if we could manage to get ahead like that, we could probably actually save up the Project Wonderful ad revenue over the next year and pay it again, and actually build toward system where the site might even be profitable.

Sorry, just got a scalding PM from Simian. I guess the official company line is that Blue/Jude aren't making any money here then...

The problem is we don't have the resources to go out and sell our own ad space. We have to rely on services like infolinks or Project Wonderful. We're people with jobs and lives, no one is doing this full time who can sit in an office and contact people to sell ads and maintain those kinds of relationships.

It also doesn't help our case that we don't censor. A lot of premium services will deny access if your site has "offensive content," a loosely defined category that applies probably to about 90% of the threads on the board. That is what happened with Google Adsense, for a thread where eltopo was talking about poop.

A thread about poop screwed us eh?

Now I think I understand why the banner ad on the mobile site is about toilets.
