Pros:
  • Get that bread
  • Makes sure the site stays up
  • Non-intrusive (1 google ad)
  • Pays for the server the site is on

Cons:
  • It's an ad
  • (((Google)))

Either that or some sort of donation button to help keep the site running.

Aren't you already kind of supporting Google by making use of their recaptcha that we need to fill in before submitting a post?

I think a donation button would be for the best. If you want to cut down costs, maybe you could look into free web hosting, like Heliohost

How about an amazon referral link? You could post it as a banner. so you'd get like 4.00% commission. Plenty of young men using this site. Who knows how much they order each month. You just ask them, in the banner, to use that link to order from. So for every 100 dollar of amazon commerce, you see 4 dollars. That could easily be the amount one person here spends on amazon in a month. The banner would read "Please support our forum and use this link to order on Amazon.com". I've spent about 100 dollars on amazon in the last month and have plans of ordering again this month. For me it wasn't hard to sign up as an amazon referral, having a .com site helps.

OK boys here's what I decided on: ads are going up on the site, just toss adblock on if you don't want to see 'em.  They're Google ads so they shouldn't give you malware if you turn your adblocker off

I may sell out further and put my bitcoin wallet addy somewhere but I think for now just a couple non-intrusive ads will work
