...You mean how i just clicked a star wars ad? :P

Here's the deal. I'll click one ad every week. How's that? :P
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

  • Already told you people too much!
For every click it cost the company putting the ad up money according to how much it appears... or at-least that's how it works with google.  I.E. a Ad will appear more if they payed $1.00 a click rather than $0.01

No false clicking. No schedules. I got my AdSense account permanently banned because of false clicks. The only thing we're asking is not to block the ads. Don't go committing to clicking once per whatever. Just don't. Click when your interest is piqued, and only then.

For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well.

To clarify, Sandwich got his HLP AdSense account blocked because people on HLP were trying to rig the clicking.

So don't even think about false clicking.  You'd be risking the financial health of the forum, and in my opinion we'd be fully justified in permabanning anyone who tries it.

Sandwich got HIS ADSENSE BANNED!!111 because YOU PEOPLE[/i] kept mass-clicking!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to make sure nobody interpreted it as Sandwich getting his personal AdSense account blocked because he personally was making false clicks, is all.  That doesn't convey the same sense of importance. :)

That would be stupid. :p

And yes, to clarify, from the horse's mouth:

My personal AdSense account was being used for one purpose: HLP ad income. But when ads on HLP got falsely clicked, my personal account got permanently terminated.

well since HLP is getting paid for out of your personal account, it would only make sense that it was your personal Adsense account.

So give us a heads up.  Since you made this thread, what amount of donations have you seen?

 
I was just about to donate, but I wound up giving my money to Rick Roll instead. :D

Well, y'all have come through real well, I must say. Current tally is $548.49. :eek2:

Looks like we'll be around for quite a while yet... ;)

  • Forsee a new beginning.
So...everyone just gave this forum another 5.5 months? How long has this thread been open?

Though I can't donate yet - except for a measly 30c or whatever an ad pays if I click on it...
I'm only joined to 2 forums - GW and HLP - it would be crap if one of them shutdown, but I think someones have given HLP a new afterburner :nod:
His legacy will last until the beginning.
