    Bros get some tasteful advertisements we'll click the everloving fuck out of them just to contribute. You don't have to hit us over the head with flashlights stuck in assholes just some pay per click ads from google or whatever. I can't deal with huge porn banners or anything but jesus dude we aren't hipsters we won't all leave because EDF got uncool and put up advertisements instead of selling .ch addresses like a mexican selling oranges on the freeway. I feel like this has been a touchy subject because noone brings it up, but I don't see what the big deal is.

    Ads are better than whining begging asking politely for donations.

    I agree they ar pretty polite. However the prices are absurd. If everything was a bit cheaper more people would buy it just for lulz and they would make more profit.

    They need to learn abit about marketing IMO. Just look at TF2, after it became free and got more members sales in hat shop skyrocketed (I hope I didnt fucked up that sentence).

    Ok, you need to get the fuck off this site if you're going to tout that fucking hat simulator as a good business model. If we have a "man-conomy" update on this site, I will kill a.t., then everyone else.

    Enough people buy it to make your cheap-ass argument invalid. We don't make a single dollar, everything goes to paying for the site, so there is no profit.

    And the whole business model is ad-free uncensored lulz, once we start adding ads we have to start worrying about the content. We make enough in donations to pay for the site. We operate 1oo% via donation, if you don't want to hear about it then stop crying about the value of the upgrades and just donate knowing that it will be going to pay for the site like everyone else does you cheap fuck.

    We will have bi-yearly donation drives most likely where we collect enough money in donations to last us 6 months so we won't have to ask again until that money runs out. I don't see the problem here.

    I think selling calenders of e in a variety of heterosexual poses will make us more than enough money.

    Oh well then there is no point of this thread. If you have enough money from selling octopuss bar+dges thats fine with me.

    How come old ED didnt had enough money with ads? They where probably greedy jews or something when they asked for donations aswell.

    Also ED being adless is great, I respect that.

    Because advertisers don't want their product associated with a site like ED. This is why we don't have ads, because we know it won't work.

    I think the question everyone is REALLY asking is, when will we get the e-calendars?

    Didnt old ED had ads that sold meme tshirts or some shit? Its not like that wouldnt work again.

    Are you saying that because of these ads we would have to remove beautiful articles like kittens? Because that would be terrible.

    (cant link kittens article because servers are crapping out for me, this is the link http://encyclopediadramatica.ch/Kittens)

    That's what I figured the problem was. Google won't work with you at all, and I can't deal with porn banners. It just seems like you guys are always so close to loosing ed and we would click the fuck out of any ads on here just to help out.

    No, the t-shirts were them. They actually had the shirts made and shipped them out and shit. That is quite a pain in the dick and really we may make a couple batches of shirts, but it's not something that any of us are willing to take on as a continuing task. We make enough in donations, I don't get why everyone thinks that just because we ask for donations that it means that we are broke. We ask for donations because that is how the site survives. Everything is working the way it should, no need to worry.

    The kind of people who would advertise with us are also the kind of people who would use loud/annoying/malicious ads, so we are not going that direction.

    Ironically, lurkers seem to donate a lot more than the active members.
