RE: The new AD Future is CRAP
Posted 12 months ago
Sorry to hear that.
Somehow, I do relate to what you're saying, but I'm having a different point of view on my end, since I'm not a regular user, or a FO.
I have the responsibility of running this site (community, to be more exact) smoothly, with no scams, aggression/insults and even spam in the chats.
When you have FOs who'd spam their link in all 3 language rooms, every 5, 10, 15, etc, etc, minutes, then you need to take some action.
I can't ban them, or blame them. They're trying to earn an income, and that's totally respectable.
But when you're getting users complaining about having a lot of spam in the chat and not being able to communicate with other users, an issue appears.
When you're between 2 fires, you need to go towards the one where the collateral damage is going to be minimized.
I had to take the "screw" the FOs (as many of you might think, but w/e) route, because I'm assuming that you'd understand why I have to do this, that I shouldn't explain the (kind of?) obvious.
I am very open to suggestions, and I have already made changes to the AD charging system, which benefits everyone equally.
New FOs under lvl50 are paying 200 satoshi per 1 AD (premium users, where regular users pay 250 sats), in a SPAM FREE chat. There's healthy competition, between low end and high end FOs.
75% of the coins the advertiser pays, go towards rains. 25% of coins go towards FH.
Oh, and guess what?
I've been running a script for near 7 months now, that tips rainmaster 10k satoshi on every single rain. I didn't have to do that, but I figured wtf, I can share some of the profits instead of putting them into my pocket. I've rained more than $25k from my own pocket just in 2016. I rained around $350, just in the last week.
No one pays attention to the stuff I try to push forward for a good reason, but everyone's having an opinion on a 5-7 cent advertisement in the chat, which is probably going to help you more, than me personally, or FH, as a whole.
How ironic, right?
You're not forced to use the chat, or even the advertising tab.
Please remember. I'm a random guy with a randomly generated nickname on the internet.
I don't take any credits IRL for the stuff I do, as mexicantarget, but I at least expect users think a bit more before creating posts and expressing their opinions, without understanding the technical and fundamental reasons of X or Y feature, or w/e it might be.
Thanks to the ones who're using logic, and even the ones who have critique on what I do. I don't get you wrong and I'm always open for any logical debates, critique, or even hate, as long is reasonable and logical.
Thanks for your time, sorry for the long post, blah, blah ;p
thank you for responding to these posts, i think people under appreciate how considerate you are about this, taking both sides into consideration is really important for this and i hope people will understand your point of view better on this matter ^^
