    How do you do it ?

    This site depends on advertising but what if that did not work ( anymore ).

    What do you do?

    Will you go PAY ?
    Or do you just close your site or even worse spend all your pocket money ?
    When slogans become advertising!

    To start with, you could submit a Paypal donation link.
    A lot of community sites seem happy with this.

    You could also create a VIP status (not free) with bound advantages.


    The site on these photos offers both and it doesn't seem to be on the verge of bankruptcy.

    If you intend to charge everyone, then you have to propose an additional service.
    Are you ready, for example, to supply a micro-seedbox to each of us?

    Thanks for the headsup but as far as I'm aware liz, PayPal doesn't approve of gay porn sites - let alone ones that torrent And if I recall correctly, we experienced problems with PayPal a few years ago.

    There are several possible options to pay in my pics.

    It is obvious that you must boycott American companies,
    I was using "Paypal" as a generic term.

    The problem is that the non-American companies make it very hard to accept American money. And guess where the preponderance of donors live.

    I would donate. I think I have before. I'd rather see a fund raiser than a lot more advertising. I don't have any idea what you spend to keep this place going. The other site I spend most of my time Moding is Joe Rogan's and he bank rolles it to the max. For him I'm sure it's just a tax right off.

    He has a small staff of a couple of guru's who do nothing but Admin his online stuff. I think you've always kinda worked this place like a full time job. Who really makes money on a Forum though? Labor of love to get to here.

    Just to highlight how thorny this problem of financing the running costs of free-sites using donations, the major finance 'exchangers' are now being used by the CopyWrong Cartel (via their paid-for political puppets) to cease processing cash transactions to "naughty sites".

    Here's a full quote of a recent 'news article' that appeared on the site of the London UK-based music Mafia site International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (ie IFPI) -

    PayPal works with police and industry to tackle copyright infringing websites
    21st July 2011

    Online payment service PayPal has agreed a partnership with City of London Police and the international recording industry that will see even stronger action to prevent PayPal's services being used by illegal websites worldwide that sell copyright infringing music.


    PayPal has always banned the use of PayPal for items that infringe or violate any copyright under its Acceptable Use Policy.
    The agreement follows the announcement in March that payment providers MasterCard and Visa would ensure their payment services were also withdrawn from such sites.


    Many of these illegal websites are based in Russia and Ukraine and have violated local and international copyright laws for many years by selling music without paying artists, songwriters or producers for their work. These websites appear in multiple languages and contain details of the latest music charts in markets around the world.
    Frances Moore, chief executive of IFPI, which represents the recording industry worldwide says: "We knew that when illegal online music services could no longer take payment from credit cards they would try to work around the restriction. That is why we and the City of London Police approached PayPal and I am delighted to say they responded instantly and positively.

    "The work the City of London Police is undertaking is at the cutting edge of tackling online copyright infringement, a serious problem that is eroding the ability of record companies to invest in a diverse range of artists with serious consequences for jobs, tax revenues and consumer choice."


    Since the March announcement with MasterCard and Visa, their payment services have been withdrawn from 24 illegal music services and IFPI investigators have just handed details of a further 38 sites suspected of infringing copyright on a grand scale.


    IFPI anti-piracy investigators are able to supply the City of London Police's Economic Crime Directorate with evidence of illegal downloads made from an infringing site. Once the police have verified the evidence, they are able to notify the payment providers who can then take action.


    MasterCard and Visa will require the acquiring bank providing the retailer with payment services to produce evidence of appropriate licenses to sell music. If appropriate licenses are not in place then MasterCard and Visa can request they cease providing those services to the retailer.


    PayPal will require the retailer to submit proof of licensing for the music offered by the retailer. PayPal will discontinue services to retailers in cases where licensing appears to be inadequate.


    Carl Scheible, PayPal UK's managing director, commented, "Today's announcement shows that PayPal is very serious about fighting music piracy. We've always banned PayPal's use for the sale of content that infringes copyright, and the new system will make life even harder for illegal operators. Our partnership with the music industry helps rights holders make money from their own content while stopping the pirates in their tracks."
    PayPal has pioneered new ways to pay for music, including its faster checkout for digital content: PayPal for Digital Goods.


    Detective Chief Superintendant Steve Head of the City of London Police adds: "We are fully committed to pro active initiatives such as these where we work with the private sector to prevent offending, stop legitimate business services such as PayPal being exploited by criminals and minimise harm to entire business sectors such as the music industry. The benefits are palpable not only in terms of delivering an effective response to victims and the business community as a whole, but also in enabling the City of London Police Economic Crime Directorate to maximise our resources in tackling a wide range of criminality".

    I was going to reply to this, but as posts in this new section can be picked up by search engines (which I prefer to avoid) I will not be posting here.

    It's worth noting that the Gay Lounge does not infringe copyright. Unfortunately, the adult content still causes problems for PayPal, I believe.

    I have made Pay Pal contributions to various individuals usually for freeware, and donations are solicited. Why cannot Army set up another simple un-porno no-torrent site and we can donate through it?

    I did that in the past but was reported for using it at an adult site! ( several times.... )

    You need a valid address and a valid account for that to work and i am simply run out of that!

    Paypal and Adult stuff do not go well together.

    It's amazing since the porn industry was what got the Internet started, and they were the first to develop an app to take credit cards. How do the model's service manage to get paid? Perhaps you should become a model, and then we could donate by paying to chat with you, Army. I would not mind more advertising if it were for interesting affiliates (sex toys, under gear, artwork, books and movies,) but I guess that is too iffy for any steady income.

    Doesn't Amazon have some kind of gift donation or something?

    Why some forums are here private?

    It has a good quality and potential.
