I know the forum displays advertisements when you are not logged in and browsing, but now they are showing up even when I'm logged in.  Did something change?

Revenue is way down, no one is really using the site's Play-Asia link anymore, so I enabled the adds temporarily in an effort to get a bit more money to cover the site's operating costs. I didn't want to, but I also don't want to pay for this site out of my pocket.

Do you get cash when the links are clicked on? I can click the shit out of some links to help out. Pretty sure all of us could.

Yep, each click = a certain amount of pennies. But they add up!

I don't want people feeling obligated to click ads all the time, though. Any help is appreciated, of course, but don't do anything excessive.

Many thanks for all the clicks, the site has generated about $25 from them since I put the ads back. P-A orders have also increased, allowing me to cover the site costs for the near future. To show my thanks, I'm giving away a copy of Mushi HD here:
