    So do they get more money for each ad clicked, or just money for the ad being put up? I've always wondered that. Maybe we should have a specific date of the month where we each click five ad's?

    I can now see duke saying "Show me the money."


    And duke I always wanted to let you know....you had me at hello.


    Hehe


    Also who does the tax's? Do you guy's hire someone to do it, or are you sauve enough to do them yourselves?

    I think it is more of just being there, because even if it isn't clicked it gets drilled into your mind.

    Yes, he does get it. GR is completely free and dUKE has always said that's how he wants it but he still has to pay his own bills and showing adverts around the edge of the screen and as intermediate pages helps him do this.

    dUKE you should start charging for post privileges.

    Want to have a sig? $5.00
    Want an Avatar? $5.00
    Want to post in misc? $10.00
    Want to view the Archives? $10.00
    Want to block annoying users? $20.00 a user
    ect.

    Think of profits! If every active users buys all the functions that's fifty times the fifteen active users...

    THAT'S $750.00!

    woo! credit card number! i'm gonna buy me a new pimp hat!

    and yes bazooka56, like most sites on the internet or television shows, we stay free by showing advertising. it pays for our offices, our servers, our electric bill, and yes, my sports car (i just had an aftermarket high-flo cat installed. vroom.) :)

    to answer about the clicks- almost all of our ads, we get paid just to show them, but the advertisers tend to be happier in the end when they see more clicks.

    to answer about the taxes- we hire accounting firms to do all that. payroll taxes in particular are a bitch and have to be filed 4 times a year. i don't even do my own taxes, too damn complicated, so forget doing corporate taxes.

    If by "sports car" you mean hatchback, and by hatchback I mean

    Duke, installing cats into your car, "high-flo" or not, is grossly unethical and cruel. You are a terrible man.
