Re: Can't wait!

Hmmm.... 50K divided by 24 months = $2000/month And a single PR 9 link is worth $2000+ month, and we still haven't factored in Adsense. If I'm way off, then phpbb is way off what they could be earning. How many people are splitting the money? I see only 3 main coders in the CVS (making up 99% on the...

Re: Can't wait!

It's unfortunate that criticism is so frowned upon here. That may be the source of much of the problem itself. I don't how much each person makes, but I'm confident 50K is coming out of the phpbb site. You can see here where PR 9 links are selling for $2400 each: http://reports.linkmgmt.com/buyer/pr...

Re: Can't wait!

Are you people drunk or stupid Actually I am sitting here having a glass of wine. :) Don't be fooled...with the kind of activity phpbb.com gets, they make a ton on adsense. I know because I also profit. My point is that if there is so much profit (somewhere in the neighborhood of 50K/month), why ca...

Re: Can't wait!

The click thru rate may not be all that high, but I'd be willing to bet they make at least $500/day on Google Adsense, but $1000 seems more realistic. One thing that was not mentioned was the Text Link Ads on many pages. For a PR 9 site, one text link can easily go for $2000/month...and I'm counting...

Re: The new phpBB version - Guess the Release Date Competit

It's very frustrating, and it's like I don't have a right to complain. There are no words... I'm sure there are some people working hard, but if things were more organized, I'm sure it would be done by now. Failure to get this done is going to cost phpbb dearly, as other solutions gain a greater foo...

Re: Congrats to area 51

I guess this is a great way to test the software under a larger server load. ;)
