You guys are so negative haha. Think about it like this for a second; i found this website back in 2007 .. I was leeching for about a week, and decided to join so I can download some WoW hacks. Well When I needed help with those hacks, I came back here to ask for help. The assistance I received was so amazing i decided to stay on the forums a little more and check out what else this community had to offer. Long story short, I am now a moderator of one of the best communities I have found .. to this date =)
So I think if people actually try and WANT TO, they will stay and be active. If they just want free stuff, whos to stop them ?
I had no idea this site receives a portion of their funds from guests. In that case, I'd rather they stay a guest to keep this amazing site running.
oh right, completely forgot guests are the only users who see ads.
Providing you with foolish stuff since 2007.
And ads help keep the site alive, right ?
So keeping guests to see ads would help this place out, since there is ALWAYS guests on here.
Now the serious question is; Do the ads pay for the site, even if they dont get clicked on ?
I think most of the guests who browse the website are looking for hacks, so most of them register just to download, that's why i think we have over 300,000 members and usually like 50 members online, and 200 guests.
