the banner on pouët.net

category: general [glöplog]
Well, it's only there to support the expenses of the server, it's actually 250$ bellow $0 since the beginning...
It's not that big but I'd like pouët.net to live by itself, at least for the hardware/bandwidth.

I had to choose between behing hosted by ojuice-scene.org-planet-d or letting it support itself.
I prefer to put a banner which will lower the expenses, and let me do what I can to make sure that pouët.net stays independant, up most of the time and fast enough.

I hope the banner will cover the expenses, and if there are some benefits, I'll be able to start hosting more files here ^^;

Amazing ... two threads runnin' about the same.

You've made the right choose, young skywalker ;)

Try to ask sceners/poueters to send you some "voluntary" $$$ :). It would be a fine joke xD

I would send money. Honestly. I use this site all the time. But in exchange, my site suggestions would have to move up on the priority list. ;)

it's really not a big deal.. i didn't even notice this damn advert, hadn't I seen the comments here and there... You may not realize, but the biggest problem with the net today is being able to offer a long term service.. ask us at scene.org or phoenix for hornet. Conditions are always changing. Sure it's fine, you may be able to host your site cheaply for a while (at your company, whatever) but this doesn't last forever. In the life of a site it will pass through different situations, some easier some more difficult. So please, don't complain when all what the webmaster is trying to do is obviously to make a compromise and provide the best service he can do.

yeah, you're right canon...
we should click on it once every time we come here.
we 'nalogue will have like 10K bucks, he'll remove it, no?
banners are ok for me, if you need it to live...

can you put a 'target = new' on your link on the €-banner please, because i click on it (to make pouet more rich) but the link erase pouet, arg!
Zone : shift + clic ;)

yeah exactly akouille =)

the problem with target=new links is that it doesn't give the choice to visitors, it always open in a new window

when it's not there, the user can choose...

why not fund the expenses by selling the so awaited pouet.net goodies ? a little small expense of two euros for each t-shirt/mug/whateveryouwant.glop, something like that won't mind me.
of course lot of ppl prefer to have an advert on the site, i don't and prefer that pouet.net becomes commercial so that we could remove that advert banner.

as long as the banner stays at the bottom, it doesn't bother me at all. i understand that there are certain expenses in keeping a website up.

btw analogue; it seems like there's a <br> missing after the banner :)

I guess we're not talking about the logo at the top of the page?

that's some nice looking necroposting you got there, would be a shame if something would happen to it.

capitalism is killing the demoscene!
