None of the staf running the boards see any cash im assuming. Its sick.
Fuck. That's disgraceful. I see more reason as to why you Mod's did it.

Isn't that 180 000 accumulated from the over 6 years this board has been up? How many active users are there? I'd expect the majority of there money comes in through ads either way.

Thats my point.

$100,000 a year turnover before ad money is insane for a single forum.

As far as I'm personally aware, this has nothing to do with the fact we're not being paid, I think that needs to be made clear.


Of course it would be nice though.

= A Massive Profit, announciated by the fact that VS run a number of other forums as well, and while not drawing as much profit, the money is still rolling in.

Yea I know this.

We pay for a service that cant be executed effectivley and efficiently why they sit there on their potentially million dollar turnover business without caring.

We are the fools tbh.
