Remove ads for 1 specific group!

Post by brandon_g on January 10th 2015, 8:02 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hello everyone,

What I am suggesting is that forumotion can give us admins the option to allow 1 usergroup to not see ads without removing them altogether. I suggest that Admins can buy with their credits the option to not ONLY remove all the ads on the forum with credits, but disable it for at least 1 usergroup. The reason I suggest this is, I can see if a forum wants to implement something like a VIP Usergroup, members can get into this usergroup by buying that particular forum credits in exchange for a set of perks like VIP Status etc. I think it is a good idea because most sites that offer VIP, also allow those users Ad free viewing, if their going to pay money (or pay to giveus credits) I think they should at least be able to view the site ad free. As of right now this is impossible on FM. I think it would be a decent feature to add.


I know what you are all thinking: well what is the point of this suggestion when FM allows users to remove ads for the entire site for everyone through credits? The point of this suggestion is yes while removing ads for the entire site will work, this being able to remove ads for 1 group only allows forums with premium and/or VIP membership programs to add ad free site usage as a benefit/perk for Premium/VIP Members only. The implemention of this suggestion would benefit that forum and forumotion, a person who donates credits to a forum (which maybe can be used to purchase the removal of the ads for the 1 group) and forumotion in turn makes money too. Now I can also hear the other negative people will say: well this is a terrible idea because then one could just remove the ads for the members group and add everyone to it. The answer I give to this is not if forumotion only allows you to remove it for a Premium/VIP Membership group only. There are ways to add restrictions to what group(s) will be allowed to have the ads removed or maybe a limit to how many users can be in the group or maybe the group won't become available until you spend the credits on it, then you could only a certain number of users to the group before you need to spend more credits to expand the capacity, or something else. there are many creative and effective ways this can work.

So while this suggestion may not be entirelly nessecary, it will help many forums with premium or VIP Memberships as well as forumotion. I would like to ask you all to think through the points and ideas I have made before voting.
-Brandon

People never donate money unless it's for a cause such as save puppieus and kitties.

Admins already pay for domain names. I wouldn't pay any credits to remove ads for everyone. Those members who don't wish to view ads they should pay themselves lol

Missed the voting? It should be a never ending poll.

Thank you for your yes vote. Smile

Let's keeping them coming.

i think the best way of doing this is pay to remove the ad's from your forum then add your own ad's to the site so you make money from clicks and you can make money for people wanting the vip to remove them

That's already the way,is it really too hard for forumotion to go the extra mile? I mean doesn't forumotion want to make money? Each person paying to remove their own ads will make more money then a 1 time payment.

It would be nice if this feature could be implemented. It would be ideal for the members who make donations to our communities.

I will give my opinion about it:
The platform is "free", but we all know that "free" not even the rain falls from the sky, right?
Of course there is much more forums that do not pay anything at all than others pay some credit to Forumotion, so I think the correct thing to keep the "ads" for all groups and should only be removed if paid some credit to Forumotion !

The "ads" are a way to raise some money since most forums do not pay anything!!!

I'm in favor of that to be added "ads" to bottom of the first post of a topic.

The rule is:
The more Forumotion raise money = better platform will be!

Wow, I can't believe I missed these posts! Sorry guys!

@JScript of course I 100% agree with you about the credits thing, I was not suggesting a forum that pays nada should have this option. I was simply suggesting that if members donate credits (I apologize my forum is an older one... It still has the 'contribution' link for users to directly donate the credits) and that with the credits they generously donated, we can spend it on purchasing the removal of the ads for the only 1 group. Smile

I hope I have clarified a little better? Sorry I am natural born writer, so I write in huge paragraphs that are boring to readbwi

This idea might be good for those forum owners that are out to make money off the forum, but for those like myself who are happy to supply the forum for free to members it isn't an option I would want.......AlthoughI am not a lover of the Google Adverts, its a simple solution to remove them if needed, simply buy credits and they are gone, there is no point making the running of our Forums any more complicated than need be.......Leave things as they are.

Hello david,

I understand where your coming from with the simplicity of getting rid of them, I am not suggesting getting rid of this, I am simply suggesting an additional option for such, as I said in the topic starter, this is not nessecary, but it would allow those forums with vip/premium member packs more tools to make FORUMOTION money.

Please don't think I am trying to make money and charge members for the use of the site, it is completely.and entirelly optional to donate credits. Also I make no money off of anything, FORUMOTION does.

Thanks for your reply david:)
