I'm curious. Often there is not a single advertisment displayed on the forums. How are you able to maintain the forums without ads?

It's hidden at the top. And Tank is awesome.

The bills were pretty steep until we cut health insurance for the hamsters - now we just throw the occasional employee barbecue and they keep quiet.

The forums are financed by Rockstar, obviously.

The only connection we have to Rockstar is that they invited some of the admins from here (and some from other sites) to demo GTA IV. They basically acknowledged our existence, but nothing more. The whole network is privately owned and operated and is non-for-profit. smile.gif

Did prices go up again? I'd like to get my premium back, but the prices are just outrageous now.

Of course there are advertisements. Apparently it's the reason why there's a word filter on a forum about violent games. For what I've heard, this forum wouldn't be allowed to put advertisements if it didn't have a filter, even if all this doesn't have much sense.

Good question. I'm very glad the forums isn't flooded with Pepsi advertisement.

OT: I always thought Slamman was the benefactor. Am I wrong?
