    BG Forums Donation Drive Jan 2009

    BG Forums have grown a lot in the past year, from our first server with the new system, killed in a month and a half. The second server, killed within a few days, the wonderful third that ended up not even having enough power to handle the growing community, and now the fourth super forum that handles all of your traffic happily.

    Except bandwith... oh yeah... we have used tons of it. On our average trend we would exceed our allowed bandwith within three to four months. If we are going over it will not affect the server BUT it will be a serious charge, one that we want to alleviate in our want to upgrade.

    So, for your consideration, we are having a donation drive. We will have full disclosure of the donations and give you a number so you know yours has been reported and kept track of. These donations will be anonymous except for your number. This will keep us nice and safe and youll know that we arent taking the money and holding onto it so we can get bought by another company and pay for hammers, small furry creatures, palletes of strawberrys, and galka sized bondage gear.

    I will be taking my own PERSONAL money and buying things to use in this donation drive, so please include a contact email with your paypal so I can enter you in the drawing. It will be some official FFXI stuffed animal things and some computer gear, maybe a hat or two, Im still working out the give aways. (PM me if you would like to donate a give away for the donation drive)

    Once again, 100% of this money is going to the forums, 100% of this money will be used for the server, 100% of this money will be for the community to stay for the FFXI and popular general discussion forums.

    Id like to thank all of the community for its continued support, I know that some of you might not be able to donate because funds are tight, but if you can spare, it will be appreciated.

    ---

    You can IM me at SonomaaKitty or send me an email at Sonomaa @ gmail.com with any questions, or PM me on the forums. We will grant custom titles for all donations.

    The paypal account is sonomaa @ gmail.com -- That is my paypal.

    Coming soon, a cool bar showing our donation amount!

    Thank you for the continued support!

    Is there a minimum amount we can donate? What's the "goal" for donations money-wise?

    If you want to help BG year-round then opt-in to the ads usergroup. You will see 1 banner ad near the top of the page and it helps generate revenue.

    Done.

    Could have been told to do this earlier. I have no problems with supporting this site, even though I use it only for the spam section :D

    Joining that group will only help if we actually click on the ads? Or will just allowing the ad to be displayed generate revenue even if we don't click them?

    no minumum, well, above a dollar otherwise its fee'd out

    Goal is around 3000, a little more or less depending on price fluctuation.

    You get a small amount for just straight up volume of views, and more if someone clicks on it.

    Okay, I'm in. I don't see any ads though, probably because of adblock. Will it still generate revenue if I can't see it? (I know that's probably a dumb question)

    Some ads on adsense are pay-per-impression.

    I don't know what that mean, but I'm assuming it means some of the ads that are being blocked wont generate revenue but some will?

    Remember, I'm an idiot when it comes to anything computer related. Failed java twice/etc.

    Blocked ads are blocked and don't give anything.

    I believe there is an option in adblock that loads the ad after the page (still blocks it), so you get the benefits of load speed, and ad revenue. I haven't been bothered to look though.

    And wtf, I don't even play FFXI but the ad is for buying gil and accounts.

    I'll see if I can figure that out. Even if I don't, I do half my browsing from work where I have to use IE, so I'll still be some help. I might be able to donate too if my finances stop sucking sometime soon.
