Premiums are the only members who can post and view attachments.

That is silly then to post things to try and "sell" folks on getting premium if they can't see it.

I run a board too, and understand the bandwidth issue, but if only premiums can POST it shouldn't be too bad...whatever...

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought andy might see it here.

.......................

I know I've been fairly vocal in my feelings about the ads, and while thanks to the wonders of premium member gold, when I'm at home I no longer have to look at them. I do hope that I can perhaps be more helpful towards finding a solution, than just being a complainer.

I just happened upon this today. I know it's targeted towards webcomics, but I'm sure the comments are broadly applicable. Perhaps you all have already explored all these options. I don't know.

But since Andy has said the google ads have been a poor revenue generator (which is confirmed by this article), perhaps exploring other options would be beneficial and more profitable.

Maybe it makes no difference since I imagine interland gets significantly more page views than these sites, but I thought I would share anyway. Maybe the google ad rates you get are higher than those you could get on these other sites, I don't know. But since you suggest that google ads aren't working out cause no one clicks, maybe these options might work out better (where people bid, or where it's based on views more than clicks).

Calamities of Nature - Online Ad Service Review and Tutorial

Ideally, maybe this could result in fewer ads - and then maybe they wouldn't be so annoying and ugly, and then maybe people wouldnt choose to block them (if they have that option) and then you would have even more views. And perhaps happier people.
Who knows.

And if this is just a repeat of things you already know and have thought about, then my apologies for wasting your time.

Thanks for posting that Brightest Star.

We are currently using ADSDAQ and Google AdSense. Hopefully we can get into some more relevant ad networks like indieclick or MOG - Discover people through music and music through people but so far I have not had any luck getting into either of those networks. We are still operating at a loss but hopefully our upgraded members will renew their upgrades and then we should be able to break even (hopefully).

I just reupped my premium as silver rather than gold. I want to switch to gold. I didn't realize silver only got me space for 25 PMs. What should I do?

I will pm you (do you have space?). You will probably have to send the remainder of the payment manually.

Sicy, I did as you instructed. Couldn't PM you back because of my full inbox. Will that space be freed up again without me having to delete messages once my payment is processed?

Hi . . . I renewed my membership early last week from silver to gold (huzzah ), payment went through and all is good . . . but got an email today saying that my membership was about to expire . . . am sure its just an automatically generated thing as I think my initial silver membership was due to expire around the 14th of this month . . . but just want to make sure things don't go pear shaped on me . . . am LOVING no ads . . . let me know if you need any additional info etc . . . ta much x k

You probably renewed your membership early so just ignore the email.
