So then... why are you a staff member if you disagree with management?

-also-

You do understand that advertising is the means by which free-to-access websites exist... correct?

Odd that. If you have the ability to moderate and/or ban user accounts, you're considered "staff" on every other user-generated venue online.

and this website has existed for many, many years without the current advertisements of which this thread is the topic.
Perhaps a little bit of research would uncover that the ads (as I'm seeing them) are being delivered via DoubleClick, most likely through either Google AdSense or Google's Ad Exchange. Behaviorally-targeted ads from such sources may include campaigns from dozens, even hundreds, of sources and Crowdgather has almost no input on the ads that are delivered to you.

It can be expensive to operated a web site, every impression delivered costs somebody some money. The only way to continue to deliver a free-to-access web site, other than through altruistic philanthropy, is via advertising.



As a staff member of this web site, I'm sure you have the email address of ownership. Perhaps a private email would have been more effective than a public thread?





(Right now I'm seeing ads for grills at Lowes, which makes sense since I was on their site not long ago searching for grilling accessories.)

This thread will be tossed into the recycling bin. As your new Super Moderator on here I plan to be rational and while fighting for the rights of all community members of Club Conspiracy also respect the rights of Crowd Gather LLC.

In regards to the advertising, this is how Crowd Gather make their money to be able to purchase websites, I understand that and think it is something we have to get used to.

However going off how BlueAngel did about the type of advertising the fact of the matter is that CrowdGather does not control the advertising that is on this site - the advertising (just like Google Adsense) comes from the advertising supplier where anyone and everyone can purchase advertising, agree to pay 20cents a click and they are added to the rotation.

Attempting to hound CrowdGather about the advertising will not, and can not change anything it is the advertising service provider you need to contact.

Most advertising however goes on what you have searched for in google, or other various search engines eg: if you search for drugs etc you may find more drug advertisements appearing.

I will leave this thread up for 48 hours so others can read it (and it doesn't look as though CC management are trying to hide anything) before I close it, then after a week I will move it to the recycling bin.

Look, dude, don't try to convince anyone that CC has no control over their advertising.

Thanks,
BA

YOUR FORMER SUPER MODERATOR HERE AT CC~~
Club Conspiracy has nothing to hide, however there is no point in keeping threads that do nothing but attack the management, and their advertising. The problem has been rectified and therefore no longer warrants being in the Website Support Forum.

In sixteen years of designing, and working with websites and communities I can assure all community members that Club Conspiracy, nor Crowd Gather for that matter, has any control over the advertising.

It is all a javascript code (form of computer programming for those who don't know) that is provided by the advertising provider, people/websites/businesses then go the advertising provider and start up an advertising campaign offering x amount of money per click that they receive.

This is why on almost every website now-days there is advertising as the website owners get paid per click on the advertising that appears, and that is how Crowd Gather obtain their finances to purchase other websites.

While I respect that ClubConspiracy.com is about Conspiracies it may pain some of you to know that not everything is a conspiracy and that the advertising is out of the control of anyone involved with this website or Crowd Gather.

Sure Crowd Gather could remove the advertising all together but then there would be no funds available to improve this site, there would be no funds available to get other websites and there would be no funds available as a business.

The advertising is out of their control, it is not a conspiracy, and those who don't believe it should look at other websites that have advertising (in particular GoogleAdsense) and see the types of advertising they have - it's the same type of thing.

Trying to turn everything into a conspiracy theory, or trying to lay large amounts of blame on administration for things out of their control is a little petty no matter who it comes from.

As previously mentioned this thread will be closed and thrown in the recycling bin because the issues raised have been addressed and therefore little to no further corrospondence in relation to these issues is not required.

Yep they definately are - like their common sense.

1. Club Conspiracy doesn't have anything to hide and having a thread which is three pages of whinging about the advertising - which no one has control over - is a wasted thread and doesn't belong here.

2. For someone that claims to be the almighty of clubconspiracy.com and the only one who could have saved it you really don't know alot about internet advertising which is surprising.

Therefore here is a link that can help you: google.com - then type in how does internet advertising work and you will be enlightened.

Am glad that I could help

Kindest Regards,
Agent Mulder
