The Sandman - Hmmm. Interesting... I thought there had to be actual ownership. I admin a big board with 1,300,000+ posts.You don't have to own the Big Board, but you do need to be an administrator.
450k posts in 3 months? Impressive.
Site or niche?
Basically i have a small website for news/politics and general culture, like gaming and this Forum. I did right some history about this on here.
But i had a little lucky. Many users from another boards in Brazil are looking for alternatives from mainstream and the censorship. We have a very hard mainstream left culture here with all what comes with the package.
2k members and growing.
The main problem is the bad posters, trolls and everything that comes with a Forum. Man, how Google hate this kind of things, is impacting on my Ads revenue and we have to moderate closely some users.
trolls and bad posters affecting ad revenue? Shouldn't be. Only if they post banned content like porn, and even so, it would only be those pages affected.
