    I think I might have found a simple ass way to make money for a new server.

    OK, I asked this in the "Moderators Forum" just to be sure (and because I know NOTHING about computers. ), but I think it should work.

    If you go to "Who's Online?" you'll notice that the page refreshes every few seconds.

    When it refreshes, the BANNERS refresh, too.

    Brett said that "clicking" the banners no longer means anything - but when the banners show up on the page, it's called an "impression."

    Just the "impression" alone makes money for the links.

    So the more "impressions," the more $$$.

    With me so far?

    Now, I figure that if you go to "Who's Online?" and minimize the window so it sits at the bottom of your screen, you can open the links again in a new window, go to "Who's Online?" AGAIN and minimize THAT window, too.

    You see where I'm headed?

    We could each have multiple windows of "Who's Online?" refreshing the banners over and over - making more and more "impressions" - making more $$$ that will go towards the new server!!!

    Even if you don't know what any of this means, please keep this topic near the top until someone can confirm this.

    In theory it should work, I really have no idea though. Also it might slow your connection down a bit too, keep that in mind as well if you're thinking of doing it.

    I should add that if you are considering leaving the "Who's Online" window open, please only leave ONE window open. The bandwidth usage will get kinda high if everyone has multiple pages refreshing.

    Good news.

    I've got only one "Who's Online?" window open and it works perfectly - no slow down with my connection at all.

    And with Brett's having changed the refresh time from 20 seconds to 10, there will be even more "impressions" made.

    The only flaw in that theory is that usually impressions are measured by UNIQUE impressions, based on your IP address and session length, so if you have only a few banners, opening multiple windows wouldn't really have much effect. However, if Brett has a lot of banner ads, this would at least make sure that every banner got 1 impression every time you were on.

    I'm not sure this company uses UNIQUE impressions actually. Judging by the amount of impressions we are getting, I'd say "no."

    (DEFTLY AVOIDING ChrisTheEdHead's SPRAY )

    Well, no one's happier that your wrong that me.

    I'd have felt pretty embarrassed to have started a topic in the Main forum had my idea been wrong.

    Now all we have to do is get the attention of everyone, and spread the word about the "Who's Online?" scam.

    It's so simple it's not even funny.

    (And Chris, put it back in yo' pants, dude. LOL )

    DIF is right! Just open another browser window and minimize that puppy. Then just browse away in the forums. The mo we browse, the mo money we generate. This will help us get that dedicated server in a big way!

    Wolfman, as I said the other night to someone, the only thing we leave in "In A Drunken Rhyme" are empties.

    I still have hope that the open "Who's Online?" window should work.

    (Even though ChrisTheEdHead tried to piss on our parade. LOL.)

    Brett, when do you find out how much the site has made off of the banners?

    Thanks, Jeff.

    Everyone, please read the posts above.

    There is a REALLY easy way to make money towards a new server for VHLinks.

    Fuckin' A. Good idea, Downy Fresh!

    Um, Brett, I have a question. My Internet connection is slow, and lots of times when I'm doing some serious Linksing, I have the Links going in 2 windows so I can get around a bit faster. Um, does that eat up bandwidth? Should I stop?

    Synth don't worry about it, you're not eating up bandwidth by having a couple forum windows open. That's no problem.
