Popular Post Maxman Posted October 4, 2018 Popular Post Share Posted October 4, 2018 As many of you know, we have been battling ad issues for some time. The feedback forum is filled with similar threads. The ad networks we have been using are struggling with mobile redirects getting through. It is frustrating and I appreciate the patience. The bigger problem is that ads for bigger networks aren't showing here. That is causing the site revenue to take a HUGE hit for a few reasons. 1) I have taken all ads down for the better part of the last few months. With no money coming in, the $600 or so it takes to run the site each month still has to come from somewhere. 2) The ads that are up are paying terrible rates causing a significant shortfall. It is tough because with the traffic we get, this should not be a problem at all. We have been working very hard to figure this problem out. How do we get back into the bigger ad networks and get them working again? I have had several people and companies working on this. I have spent countless hours on it myself. I have paid consultants money to try and figure it out. Well, we just got the answer and it is going to require site changes unfortunately. The site has been blacklisted due sexual content. We have never been heavy handed moderating the forums. Going-forward we have no choice to change things. We are going to need full cooperation on this, sorry but this isn't debatable. We have to get this restriction listed, so that means: 1. Cursing: No cursing at all. This is going to be one of the biggest areas to clean up. We have to change the word censors BUT the responsibility is NOT on the software. No Cursing. We will be ****'ing out words. I do repeat, no cursing at all, this is one of the reasons we are banned. 2. Nudity \ Lewd Images: The thread in the Lounge with all the pictures has to go. There are photos in there that contain nudity. We have looked the other way on it but we can't do that anymore. I know a bunch of people worked really hard on that but we have no choice. This also includes photos that are graphic is nature. People have taken images from some really nasty sites and posted them here, no can do. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding. 12 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
