Our forums has very good traffics, I am wondering if hubpage can monetize it? Something like 50 percent of chance to earn the revenue for a topic or reply.
Good idea but I suppose the team is already very busy
We do have ads in the forums, but only for people that aren't signed in and on threads that haven't had any activity for a while. The forums are primarily a place for the HubPages community to convene, so we don't want them too cluttered up with ads, or especially with spam. As it turns out the ads that we do run don't generate much revenue (and yes, when we run ads we do split the impressions 60/40 with a randomly chosen author on the thread).
But if you did that the forums would be flooded with meaningless messages just because people wanted to earn money.
I think this has hit the nail about as perfectly on the head as could be.
It depends on the rules as usual. For example if only the creator of a thread is paid then he will make effort to craft an interesting topic so that others will be incited to answer. As for others since they don't earn any money they will genuinely answer.
I do think that though for most money is not the primary motive it adds some pizzas and will incite more people to participate and search for value added discussion.
It's outside traffic that clicks on ads, generally, and inside traffic in the forums, generally, so I can't see it being a big money-spinner.

I just noticed my poems have had the advertising removed. How will they earn income without advertisements?
