maybe even make it a little bit more:
people submit their own ads, people vote for their favorite member-made ad and it'll get added or something like that ^^

But then there's no profit :P

p2

it looks like that, yess, but actually it will result in people being even more involved in the whole advertising stuff. The change from "I hate ads" to "sure I disable adblockers, I want to see the ads to vote for my favoreit one"
It's very well possible it's gonna result in even more members watching the ads which would on the other hand neutralize the negative effect ^^

Yeah, we made a point to let our users the possibility to put their own ads up, otherwise it's no fun and we wouldn't put ads here in the first place.

For the voting thing, I'm not sure how it would work, but I guess you can always vote for the best one in the other thread.

So I was wondering if we were receiving any outcome, now that we mostly have those online comic ads? I know the highest bid is usually around 0.01-0.02 but I was wondering if the income was basically the second highest bid like on Ebay?

Juju

Simple. We get whatever the highest bid is per day minus 15%+GST going to Project Wonderful as a commission, for every region. I think it's precise to 1/100th of a cent, so no problem there.

Ah, I thought we got what the second highest bid was. On Ebay, IIRC, if you bid $30 and the previous person bid $15 then I think you pay $15, right?

Juju

I'm not sure it works like this. You bid $30 because you said you'd pay $30 for it if you win, then you pay $30 because you won.

I'm confused then. Many people told me in the past that it was not that way. That crap is complicated as hell it seems.

Juju

I never really bought anything on eBay and I don't really know how it works, they probably added their own twist on the process, but, as far as I know, this is pretty much how auctions generally work. Both on eBay and Project Wonderful, there is mechanisms that lets you automatically outbid the current bid until a limit you set, and as far as I know, you pay the price you bid.

YEah, I personally just look at the latest bid and assume that that bid or what I'll bid will be what I'll pay. I usually just bid at the very last minute.

On a side note, if calc.news traffic is significant enough, do you think ads could be added there too or would you need a different Project Wonderful account due to being a different domain name?

Thanks for explaining, by the way

Juju

It can go on the same account, yeah. The limit is 5 ad boxes/site.
