    the frothing of the mouth anger that people are PMing me with tells me they think your being a bit of a dick. Ragn put in a bunch of his own money last year (and the year before) to cover our many bandwidth overages, this year he didnt have to put as much money into the site to cover excess, the ads are helping pay for the site, so he just put the money back where he wanted it to go.

    People who froth at the mouth out of rage are no better than beasts and should be considered as such. Tell them bitches to grow a pair and bloody deal with it. The dude is just making a post on his opinion. This is a discussion forum. Henceforth, it's a valid post. People should stop frothing and start posting.

    I for one, do not give a damn where shit comes from or what it cost.

    I'm certainly not trying to criticize. A majority of my time on the Internet is spent on BG forums, and that probably wouldn't be possible if not for Ragns and yourself (certainly not with as high of quality forum as we currently have).

    Guess I should probably just stick with saying "Good luck on the Donations" and "Rafflecopter ftmfw!"

    Every time I see that controller it reminds me of Super Smash Bro's Melee .

    BTW are there going to be any fun custom/unique prizes by the admins/mods? (Like Rocl's story from last year!)

    How are the ads doing btw? Given the traffic this forum generates at times I would assume you guys get $$$ per-view as well as per-click.

    Ads don't pay as much as people may think. You need tons of traffic to get a decent amount from advertising but that much traffic cost a lot in bandwidth and BGers aren't the kind to click on any ads they see so you see the problem there.

    In the recent years donations been paying for a bit more than half the server fees but as server fees goes down with technological progress it might be possible in a few years to pay the fees only with guest ads.

    Is there still an option to enable ads if we don't mind seeing them anymore, or is that gone?

    Not worth it, members that frequently visit don't see the ads anymore and amount for less than 1% of the ads income.
