Solved Forum Ownership

Post by Xiahiw on July 7th 2010, 10:42 am

Is there a way to purchase your forum? Like, if you've put X amount of effort in to it and decide you'd actually like to OWN it, so as to allow freedom of advertisement on it, etc.

You can advertise on your forum.
Also, no there is no way to own it. The databases will always be owned by forumotion.

I don't fully understand what you mean. You can purchase credits and spend them on a personal domain, like http://www.XXXX.com or .net or .biz or .org, etc. instead of having http://XXXX.forumotiondomain.com. You can also spend credits on getting rid of ads. If you mean putting things like Google AdSense on your site, you're allowed to do that from the start Wink

Well, I currently have a site with 10k (10,000) registered users and an increase of about 25/day, excluding the non-confirming registers and non-registering viewers of the site. I also hold the #1 Google spot, and #2 when New Grounds wants to be up.

What I want is to place advertisements or otherwise income generating features on my site, so I might spend my time more productively. Getting a site that far, and maintaining it for a few years is and was tough. I figure, if I can, why not get something out of it?

If you want to make money, you want Google AdSense. If you want more traffic on your site, you want Google AdWords.
