was just wondering what the eranings potential would be for add placement on the forms pages.
i'm no brain on how any of this works, but it was a bizar question that popped into my head.
the revnue generated could aply to the original poster of the forum,...he/she would own that forum like they own a hub.
i notice that some folks here have a knack for posting forum topics that keep going like the energizer bunny,... would seem like a missed opportunity for them.
the forums are only visable to members but why not
It would be a long, long road from idea inception to implementation. And it would be strewn with many, many pitfalls; the really big one being click fraud. But if it were to somehow succeed, site sign-ups and traffic would go through the roof.
that's an awesome idea! It would encourage people to start threads maybe too many though- but creative!
Advertisement on Forum is not a bad idea. I don't know why HP is not implementing this. However, there is no use of implementing it on revenue share basis. They should use their own Adsense ID just to level the expenditure that they are incurring to keep this forum running, like engineers data centers etc. Since, it is visible to search engine and the forum contents are a part of site maps, so it should be easy for them.
Sharing revenue on Forum is a recipe for disaster. It will become one of many destinations of spammers. However, HP should be welcomed to post their one Ad here. A financially healthy HP will keep all of its writers healthy.
The forums are visable to others....log out and see for yourself.
I think the forums are for the content makers not the income sources. I am happy not to have ads here.
Just think of all the ridiculous threads started just to earn money, same with the questions. I am happy the way it is.
And yes, they are visible to everyone.
I think if spammers were going to try to spam in the forums they'd o f done it already- one thing that keeps them from spamming our hubs is moderation but also that no links actually appear even with urls fully formatted so no juice would be gained and thus we're rarely spammed, and flagging gets rid of it quickly- I think since it's a static hub itself to create a thread, and much like a comments box in the hub itself- there would be no real risk beyond the same risk on a hub-
BUT what they could do- is make it where only hub page authors would have access to posting- as I think it is so spammers wouldn't be a problem- if they spammed their accounts would be terminated.
I like the idea of hubbers earning from their threads but the moderation in here is pretty good so that wouldn't be my concern, however I believe it would be a much better idea for them to earn from them to maintain all these programs and hiring more coders to implement features...
but I too enjoy an ad free forum environment so it's actually a nice relief that this isn't the case here.
Well the spammers are having a good go at it today - one company multiple id's/profiles on lots of forums, great.
oh yeah and you posted a spam topic as well
yea but if the joker was using the same IP address one ban could take care of them all

OK, I heard the objections to my idea of no hubs/no forum posts and see the validity.How about a mandatory "Introduce yourself" post that has to survive not being flagged by X number of people in X amount of time and if they pass, they have access to every forum. Otherwise, no...

all the people I see spamming the forums are signing up long enough to post on the forum but aren't writing any hubs. So ... I was thinking. Why not require three hubs from a person before they can post in the forums? They would still be allowed to read to their heart's content, but they would need...

This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and brain storm about how to keep spammers out in the first place.I know that I have...

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...

I suggest that HP prevent any registered user from posting a new topic to the forums if they have no hubs. They can comment but not start new threads.Most forums that I use have this restriction in place.

I have a forum which is very new, and have gotten some members to join, however, they keep spamming the hell out of the site!All they do is post information about Pharmacies, and "start your home business" etc. (nothing to do with the actual topics!)I'm thinking about abandoning SMF...
