Dear FA,

No apology is needed. After all, you are trying your best to help the forum. We truly understand your good intention. Hopefully, some of us here can come out with some great ideas to help this forum thrive and succeed.

What happened to the revenue from the ads? I noticed quite a number of ads on the front page?

A webmaster I know collects donation to keep his forum going. His forum had high traffic so the donations were substantial. In return for the donation, he gave out little perks. eg. PM quotas, ad free browsing etc.

Still, your main problem is the lack of visitors. There are some days when the number of members/visitors here is zero.

There is only so much a few can do.

OP has a very good point. Without constant, sufficient traffic in the forum, the advertising revenues can't be too good. Hence to assure success, this forum has to draw in a lot more viewers and participants.

Until late last year, actually we have "Google Adsense" advertisements on this forum. But because we have member posted some sexy photos (infringed the Terms and Conditions of Google) that caused the advertisements being disable by Google.

This is one of the threads disallowed by Google - http://forum.ipoh.com.my/showthread.php?t=10197.

If you don't know what "Google Adsense Ads" is, please visit this site to find out - http://myclassifieds.com.my. There are 3 "Google Adsense Ads" on the main page. 2 on the bottom left and one on the centre right. For every click on the ads, we earn some commission from Google.

I am waiting for approval to remove the sexy threads on this forum to enable the "Google Adsense Ads" back. What do you all think? Should I remove all the sexy threads?

I deleted a few photos by fortune & he was so mad & left the Forum.

FA, I think some of his threads with almost naked photos be deleted with immediate effect

You need approval to remove pornography? Approval from who? I thought it is a moral obligation across all forums to forbid pornography lest "young eyes" ogle at such objectionable images?
