2008-08-05 [M!]: ADS.
Sorry, I just wanted to be the first. Yey for money?
2008-08-06 [Neferoth, the lethargic stigmata]: Yeah.. I'm just confused because on the side there was an add for House.. And under, was an add for.. House.. Just my two cents. Google really didn't do a good job. =/
2008-08-09 [nokaredes]: Fixed a typo :)
2008-08-23 [Imperator]: I was so excited when I saw ads after I logged out! How much will this suplement the donations?
2008-08-23 [Artsieladie]: I understand the need for ads. I so wish I could help more with the costs for Elftown.
2008-08-25 [Hedda]: It will not be added to the donations. The ads will pay for the hosting of Elftown. Just as I've written above.
2008-08-26 [Imperator]: But how much is Elftown earning from the ads?
2008-08-29 [Hedda]: Nothing. The deal is that I have the ads there for the hosting.
2008-08-30 [Imperator]: Well certainly there's a price on hosting? I'm just curious here...
2008-08-31 [Hedda]: Yes, the price is the ads.
2008-08-31 [Imperator]: ... Fine then. How much did it cost to host Elftown before the ads?
2008-08-31 [Hedda]: It costed nothing for Elftown as I personally paid for it, and before that Linköpng University paid for it.
I pay 320 SEK/month for my internet connection plus about 150 SEK/month for powering the [Elftron]. Unfortunately I can't get more than one Internet connection, unless I pay for another flat, and that's too expensive.
2008-09-01 [Imperator]: SEK? What does that stand for? Isn't Sweden on the Euro?
2008-09-01 [Neferoth, the lethargic stigmata]: Because Google knows all!.. ;>>

Let me know if you consider this proper, when would be a good time to reach you.
Thanks in advance.
Hope to hear from you soon.
2008-09-05 [Hedda]: Better ads and more money?
I emailed him and we'll see if that's something to have. It would be nice with "art" and "game" categories instead of Google's ads that tend to be pretty irrelevant often.
2008-09-06 [Imperator]: You should make Elftown earn so much money that every member can recieve a monthly paycheck just for being a member. That would surely boost our numbers!
2008-09-08 [Hedda]: Harren Media apparently shows mostly ads for scammers and sites trying to fool people to send an expensive SMS to join a contest that probably is totally illegal and a scam. I'll have non of that on my sites, especially since it's more problem than getting money from Google who has pretty OK advertisers.
