hey props to the 12oz clique for being around longer than most of you have been writing. I think you guys provide a wonderful service especially for old retired fartslike me. I dont bench any more, i dont hang out with writers (except my friends that happen to be writers and most of them have retired also) for me this is my only exposure to the culture. Thank you for that and maintaining it for so long.

 

FUCK everyone complaining about this and that. to the 12oz team get all the ad revenue you can. if it takes me clicking on ads to help you guys out then consider them ads clicked on. if i had mad dough i would make a sizable donation. I hope to see this forum around for another 10-12 years - or beyond....

 

how do I get a premium account?

 

Peace

I blame this on Earl Broclo ESQ. keeping that bottle of hot sauce by the server. I told him to move it!

 

 

What a Jerk.

 

 

 

Seriously man, some kid already called us snitches. Why do you have to go and prove him right? Bad move man. Bad move. You better watch your back at the company Christmas party.

does 12oz make a profit on the adds?

and shop etc.?

i know its not my business ive just always been curious weather or not they make a large sum of money due to the site.

 

All I'm going to say is those ads go towards keeping this site running. If it weren't for those ads, I think you'd all have seen a "thanks, but 12oz is closed" page already. If you see ads popping up on the site it's because we need to keep the lights on for all you to see. Who knows what the future will hold for 12oz forums, but Raven's been pretty consistent with what he's done in the past. From the magazine, to the first launch of the forum, the growth of the forum, then the blogs and new bloggers? It's not a bad track record. So people need to notice that with ad agencies wanting to get up on this site, means 12oz can grow bigger and better.

 

Another way you can help, is by down loading this:

 

http://www.alexa.com/toolbar/

 

This will help you keep track of the rankings for websites. Obviously, the closer you get to #1 (Google.com) the more agencies want to use you. The Alexa toolbar helps you keep track of that. You can also compare it to other forums, and see that we are still ahead of the game.

You can adjust that with the expand/collapse buttons across from the words 'subscribed thread' and 'lasest rep'. Its a light grey box with a + or - in it.

its not a democracy, so you're right about that.. and just 1 more reason to not drop a cent on them.. when i was banned, the situation was poorly handled by what ever moderator handled it, so good thing i wouldnt waste $ here. ida got robbed

sense of entitlement?

.. sense of reason, why would would you pay to be a part of that?

 

Well, let's follow your line of reasoning to its logical conclusion.

 

Why would you come back and post on a forum when it was made clear to you that your input was neither wanted nor needed here?

 

Raven isn't making a dime off of this site, so the least you can do is click an ad and give up the notion that he owes you something because you so nobly graced 12 oz with your presence.

(Disclaimer: this is by no means the official word, just what I seem to remember hearing at some point)

 

As far as I'm aware 12oz has run at a loss for most of its lifespan, being propped up at first by Raven personally, and then later subsidized by related projects (4THW, AKA etc.). My guess is that since the relaunch and resultant increase in advertising, the forums now break even, or, if they do make any money the vast majority of it will be ploughed straight back into improving content. From my understanding of what Raven does outside of 12oz he neither needs to nor wants to run the site as a money spinning venture simply to line his pockets. (Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken)

 

The bottom line is that server space + bandwidth for a site of this size is not cheap and since most of you are too damn cheap to fork out $18/year (what does that translate to in the US? 6 beers at a bar? That's giving up half a beer a month...), what advertising revenue is generated can only maintain the current server capacity instead of increasing it in line with the growth of the site and/or adding more features. If one day the site can no longer be sustained I'm willing to bet that people who will complain the most and most vocally will be those who are currently complaining that they shouldn't have to support the site financially...

CLICK ON THE DAMN ADS EVERYTIME YOU VISIT, simple as that. Now that I know, I will begin the clicking as I visit. Thank you for keeping the site up and putting in MAD TIME for it to stay up.....

 

Respect given where respect due...catch on kids!
