    Default We are restoring redirect ads for Lurkers

    Years after disabling redirect ads (except for bad users), we are restoring them for Lurkers.

    Why? Because our servers just can't handle the traffic anymore.

    Benefits of restoring redirect ads :

    • many bots will be stopped, so the site will be much faster for regular users
    • community weekends will not happen every week
    • the daily bandwidth limit will be increased by 15% for Lurkers
    • the income will hopefully allow us to upgrade our servers and improve the site performance

    Note that we expect some drama to happen again, so here is the one and only rule this time : zero tolerance for drama.
    The angry lurkers who will start a rant will be banned on the spot and their posts will be wiped.
    Why? Because we ran out of patience after years of the same drama. Even after removing all ads from our site, the bad actors who complained about ads were still reposting our exclusive content on for-profit site with ads. So clearly we will act swiftly and not let drama get to us in the slightest this time.

    We have backpedaled. After 24 hours of test it turned out the income from redirect ads was too low and would not allow to upgrade our servers.

    We are currently investigating other options such as implementing optimizations, however, since it is extremely difficult, we will likely drastically decrease the bandwidth limit of lurkers. Lurkers use +90% of the servers resources while giving little to nothing back to the community.

    Our priority is the community, we want our regular members and contributors to enjoy their stay on the site and not struggle to load a page.

    We expect of course a lot of complaints from lurkers. We will ban rude lurkers on the spot, since we don't owe them anything and that will allow to save server resources for our community members.
