    A friend of mine runs another forum on Tapatalk that has only 200 members on Tapatalk. He gets like $20 a month from Tapatalk for ads. We changed the site to Go Daddy and the price to maintain the servers went up, but member donations help pay for the cost. Better than being in censorship hell!

    I wonder of there's a correlation between # members and ad income. The 'old' place has 12,800 members just on Tapatalk, plus ad income from the site. I'd guess it's a pretty profitable gig? Maybe that's the reason for the crazy rules?

    I'm sure the ad revenue plays a huge roll in their thinking over there.

    Tapatalk pays you based on the ads displayed just like Google so the more members the more money. I have no doubt they're making solid 4 figure monthly profit.

    I have no problem being upfront: I own a web business so I have servers to host this site. So it costs me nothing right now. For me it's all about the community and having a place where everyone is welcome and encouraged to be themselves.

    I have ads here but everyone right now is Founder's Club so they're hidden. But if I ever actually end up making any money on this place I'll start running raffles and give stuff back to the community.

    Thanks for the forum shifter. Last I checked, I am indeed an adult and can make my own decisions on what I want and CHOOSE to read. Self-moderation does exist and I think this forum will prove that.

    We hit 100 members in 3 days so I raised it to 250.

    I was originally going to make it 250 but I thought it might take months to get that many lol. I was hoping to get 100 in the first month. I really had no idea there were so many like-minded people.

    FYI it does take a few minutes after you confirm your account for the system to add you to the Founder's Club.

    The constant deleting of posts on VMB I think is getting to people.

    Hey I would join for the Founder's Club alone. Have you reached 250 members yet?

    BTW, what is the Founder's Club?

    Hey shifter! Thanks for the board. I too am a member of the infractions/deleted posts club. I did have one comment. I was able to see PT's trip report before joining and believe that that advertisers will eventually say something about that. You may eventually be forced to make that part of the forum private.
