    This should only be viewable by mods/supermods/admins at this point. John asked that I create this section after I told him it wasn't a good idea to share music in a semi-public forum (anyone paying for Gold membership automatically gets access to inner circle and VIP section).

    Upload limits haven't changed but linking will be private here. I'll let John explain the rest...

    Let's make sure there are no accessibility issues here before going too far forward.

    Cool, so the permissions worked granting just a few in here, let's just make sure no regulars get in here. John or I can add individual users manually. PM me with any questions.

    Just bought imagehosting site. It was cheap enough where giving it a whirl couldn't hurt. People like free things so I'll never charge for storage, and maybe once in a blue moon people will click the ads. More traffic means more clicking which means more $$$ :)

    So should we be clicking the ads on the top of USMB more often? I hit them occassionally, usually by accident, but don't know how you are getting paid for them.

    I can't ask or advise anyone to click on the ads as that would be against Google's TOS. :)

    Yes, advertisers pay google to have their ads displayed. The ads show up based on the content of the text on the page. Google won't release the exact values they charge and profit, but I get a percentage of every click. I haven't made enough to retire (or buy a pack of smokes) but I make enough to completely cover the cost of the site with some left over. Every cent left over gets reinvested in advertising to try and get more members here.

    P.S. - look at the very bottom of the main page and you'll see 5 links that are programmed to change every time you visit the homepage. That kind gentleman has been paying me $50 per month to place those ads. I'm quite confident he's just charging those that actually have their sites advertised more money and then having the ads rotate across dozens of sites.
