I just got off the phone with the server administrator. We basically talked exclusively about INTL and why it's been bogging down lately. Throughout our conversation, we came to the conclusion that it would be best if alternate means of revenue were used to help pay for the server and bandwidth.

What do I mean by alternate means of revenue?

Banner ads.

Yes, unfortunately, INTL will soon have banner ads. It hurts me to write that, in fact, I'm nearly in tears (not really). Anyway, banner ads are becoming increasingly necessary to maintain this site, but why?

Well, the server that INTL is currently hosted on also hosts about 25-40 other sites and those sites are starting to run slower, because INTL is beginning to suck up system resources. In turn, I'd like to, within the next six months, purchase my own dedicated server and host INTL on it exclusively. This will cost money. Lots and lots of money. Money that I don't have. So in turn, I plan on adding banner ads to help me raise as much revenue as possible, so that I don't have to shut down INTL, because it's causing clients to cancel their accounts with the server administrator.

Now, when I add banner ads to the site, I will try not to include obnoxious ads and popup ads. However, when I do add them, I'm going to need as much help as possible. By help, I mean clicking the ads once or twice a day, so that I can maximize the amount of money I bring in.

That's about it, folks. I hate to bring INTL to this extreme, but as I said, it's becoming increasingly necessary to maintain and upkeep the site that we all know and love.

That's cool.
As long as it keeps INTL running, it's a good idea.

How much money are you talking about? Because I just mailed 80$ to Joel, and if there's a dire need, I can spare some change; like PR's system.

I don't mind pop-ups, if it's necessary. As long as they only pop-up once.

Well aslong as popups are minimal I could deal with them. I would prefer you just stick to banners though. As long as this site stays up though I would be happy. I just got here and it seems really cool.

I know i don't frequent here much, but I think banner ads would be best, like you said. Pop ups don't even reach me..*pats mozilla*

Pop-Ups are satan.

Banner adds everyone will learn to live with. They're a small price to pay for the continued existence of INTL.

I thought, upon clicking this thread, that something terrible had happened. Banner ads are alright. In fact, I'll try to click them as much as possible.

Just want to say thanks. This place is a lot of fun for me, and a great escape from my real world of grown-ups. Hanging out here helps me relate to my own kid, too, and there are some very nice people here that either crack me up daily or touch me with their sincerity.

I'll click as much as I can on the banners, but pop-up ads make me grow fangs.

So, yeah.

I'm fine with banner ads.

Thanks, Jeff.
There was only one road back to L.A. US Interstate 15, just a flat-out high speed burn through Baker and Barstow and Berdoo, then on to the Hollywood Freeway straight into frantic oblivion: safety, obscurity. Just another freak in the Freak Kingdom. We'd gone in search of the American Dream. It had been a lame fuck around, a waste of time. My heart was filled with joy. I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger: a man on the move, and just sick enough to be totally confident.

I hate pop-ups as much as anyone, but I can live with them. Run some Porn site adds so that people actually click on the links.
