Some of you might have noticed that a Google bar has appeared at the bottom of the forum.

We have done so because getting + running a server costs money. And since we don't want to take money from the players, we will try all options possible before having to consider that.

See this is a step away from paying, instead of a step towards.


(might as well tell you that we do not get money from just having them here, they need to be clicked. Do not ask me if you need to stay a while on the page, or if you have to do anything else, cause i dont know)

A forum isn't the best of places to put Google text ads. I mean, look at some of the advertisements.

Any way the ads could be more related to gaming and such. "Sex Offender Resourses" ins't a very appealing ad...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they still need to be clicked for any money to be made. I don't think you made that clear. People might think that simple placement makes money.

I'm not familiar with Google Ads, but I'm sure even if they give you money for simple viewing of ads, it would be fractions of a cent compared to the amount you get from it being clicked.

One situation I have experience with Ads like this is that simply just clicking and closing the window doesn't count. The website logs that you got redirected from this place and counts 10 to 30 seconds before it gets registered as an actual click. That was the proceedure several years ago, not sure how things are done today.

I have no problem with Daria or any of it's other staff. It was changed in response to his lies about fixing it, which he did NOT do.
