Default Ad Banners

I know it sounds crazy, but TO shouldn't have to pay to keep this site up all the time! And what if someting happens to him? The site will be shut down! Yes, ads are a terribble thing to ask for, but I would prefer that than to make TO fork over his cash or have subscription usership.

If TO puts ads here, I'll leave. If I want ads, I'll go to tripod.

It's what, 60 USD a year to maintain a domain? Come on, if you're that poor, I think you need to be spending your time at school for a job, not online...

Tau Online has already got ads on the website, and ads are coming to the forums soon. Also due to money problems I'm going to limit people posting to 5 posts a day- which should save money. And attachments and avatars will be pay-only I'm afraid..

You would kill off MY AVATAR? How about 3 ad banners instead of one? And instead of limiting post and attachments, an easier way would be to kill off old threads earlier and disallow all pointless threads (what are you listning to now?, The Unnoficial Name Rating Thread, The official avatar rating thread, ect.).

Hehe, sorry- my post was an 'April Fools' :P The truth:

The website has ad banners, un-intrusive ones. They cover the hosting costs fully, and I'm making a nice profit so no need to worry! Just so people know, it costs about $100 a year to maintain Tau Online- hosting costs $60 a month, although I live in the UK and so paying for conversion costs (£ -> $) costs quite a bit of money..

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
