This is to all.

I am thinking about having to add another ad unit to your forums. WoW don't panic!

I promise i have your forums best interest in mind, i do not want to make your forums look a mess or fill them full of ads.

Yes other hosts do it and i do not want to but i need to cover costs and my time. I know it has already be speculated about on this forum as to how much i earn and really it is not as much as has been stated.

I once thought like this also "yes set up my own site put an ad on it and i will earn loads on page views and clicks", the reality is far from this hence the decision to add another ad unit.

Now of course i am not just going to put another ad on your forums and tell you to lump it (that would be shooting myself in the foot!) as you guys are what keeps this place going and i thank you too! phpBBhosts has been growing more popular day by day.

So what i am going to suggest is a couple of options then we can have a discussion and vote about this and see what we come up with.

So

Option1
Image
Ad a link unit like the one above, to the bottom of your forum that will show on every page of the forum, similar to the top ad but a smaller link unit that is at the bottom of the forum.

Option2
Image
Ad a link unit like the one above, to the vewforum page which will show ever 15 or 20 topics
so if you click a forum on your board you then get the list of topics and every 10th topic will be a link unit
because it s a link unit it is very unobtrusive and will look almost like a normal topic.

An example of the link unit can be found here
https://www.google.com/adsense/static/e ... rmats.html

it is the (728x15_4) Displays up to 4 links one.

i know you might hate me for this guys but trust me it is not my intention to try to earn loads nor is it to make your forums look a mess i just need enough to keep this place going as i love it! and maybe a little for my time. ;)

I look like a total noob, being the only person to choose Option 2. For a larger ad, that I view every 10th or however many topics, I would be good with that. It works for me, and actually makes things easier...somehow. I for one don't want 2 ad things on my forums all the time, so if the larger one appeared every few topics, that would work for me.
