Hi.

Pay per clicks links are not allowed here.
That's why my videos & pics thread (which was supposed to be a megathread) is now closed).

http://www.xossip.com/showthread.php?t=341474

I don't understand why such links are forbidden.
You click on it and you got an ad. It takes you half a second to skip it and then you got your link.
Hosting sites are a much bigger problem when you don't have a premium account.
Like MegaUpload. You have to wait 60 seconds for the first file and then an hour or so for each additionnal file. It's much more annoying for the downloaders but it's allowed.
So forbidding Linkbucks doesn't make sense.

I am a downloader too. I don't care about pay per clicks links and i think a lot of people, probably most people here, don't care about it either and are happy with the pics and videos, Linkbucks or not.

We all agree that any new post makes the forum better and Linkbucks is a great support to give us the strength to post a lot.

So i'm writing this, here, in order to get your opinion as a downloader. And make some suggestions too.

Do you think Exbii should allow pay per clicks links like Linkbucks ?

Yes or No...

If some people are interested in the stuff that I could post if Linkbucks is allowed, maybe mods and admins here could consider some suggestions in order to adapt the rules.

Like announcing the Linkbucks links in the title of the thread so those who don't care about it could enter and donwload, and those who don't like that wouldn't feel abused and would be free to stay out of that evil thing.

I could also regroup all my posts and all my links in 1 big thread so it wouldn't be all other the place here.

So what do you think about it ?
Speak and vote...

No....

This will be abused easily by many ppl just to earn money, maybe u dont care about using it in that way, but unfortunately others have, and thats the reason why its not allowed.......

Well not really.
If there is a new rule, and if someone doesn't respect it, mods will have to do their job.
And it's better to earn half a buck a day with linkbucks here for months or year than 3 bucks a day but only for 2 days before being banned.

we tried, but people spam. they post useless/junk/repeat links with attractive titles just to gain more clicks. our mods have worked very hard to bring pnv under control, and it is looking much better than it used to. we are in no mood to go back to the spam filled days.

Hi Godfather...

I understand your point, but i think you're wrong.

People were spamming posting useless, junk, repeat or dead links...

1- It's the same thing as any post, linksbuck or not.
If the post sucks for any of these reasons, it has to be deleted.
That basic rule is already existing and is already applied, so no problem about that. It doesn't change anything.

2- People have to post 'quality' stuff in order to earn money.
If it's crap, you get much less clicks. And if it's dead, people see it quickly and speak, so you don't get a lot of clicks anymore.

3- And spammers can't make long term money and they know it because they'll get banned pretty quickly.

Most linkbucks posters follow the rules, because it means more money for them at the end of the day.

So if you adapt the rules everybody wins because you'll get much more good stuff than crap.

Right now, a spammer who breaks the rule about linksbuck can make some money before getting banned.
And someone who's respecting the rule gets nothing.

Which means that the good guys lose and the spammers win.

With the changes explained here (Linksbuck section + 1 big LB thread per poster) you could continue to kick spammers asses and allowing good people to do their thing.
