View Poll Results: Should we allow more or less advertising on the forum?
- 22. You may not vote on this poll
Lets have all the spam and stuff. It might be interesting
Keep it as it, but have an open forum for product announcements
No, its about right as it
Accept its necessary sometimes, but still too much
I'm a purist, there shouldn't be any advertising at all
Thread: Advertising or no?
I "think" I hear what you are saying
At the risk of being kicked off the forum my feelings are as follows
Please donít forget that all the members of this forum do what they do out of good will and the joy of helping a struggling soul over a hurdle or two
Without its members this forum would be nothing more than an advert
Iíll assume that most of the members except that bandwidth and sever space needs to be paid for and the "webmasters/moderators" time compensated
What worries me is that on the back of all that good will and hard work we will end up with an orgy of adverts and profiteering instigated and enjoyed by the few who have the power and paid for by the many that in my opinion have the true moral ownership of what mycncuk uses for fuel
I fully except that I may be way off the mark and mycncuk is costing you money to run however you did not express this in your response which naturally leaves me with the feeling that this is not the case
The things I express above are genuine concerns and I express them on this thread as it seems the most relevant to the points i make, I could have expressed them in feedback as you ask but that seems a little out of the public eye and would sooner discuss in an open forum, others may show an interest (id find it rather sad if they didnít)
So, my question to you considering what it is that everyone else is doing hear, at what point do you run out of good will and need paying for what it is that you do, how much is it you would like paying and would it not be easier to discuss with the members what it is you think you are worth and the best means to satisfy your requirements
This may sound like a very rude question but considering the points I make above itís not an unfair one
But websites/forums are full of ads of other websites advertising stuff, and the internet is full of addons to block those ads should you so choose.
So to me it's not a problem if Lee wants to swamp us with ads "He blogs for food remember"
We can like it or lump it, I guess most will be not bothered me included.
