Re: PunBB needs your money!

Neither have I and I did find PunBB via Hotscripts but only because it was temporarily in the top ten highest rated being new at the time and only having 100% scores.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

I still think we should go for the milliondollarhomepage.com smile

Hmmm.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Hmm. Any other ideas then?

Re: PunBB needs your money!

In my opinion ... your 300$ could be used better by buying GOOGLE adsenses ... : all webmasters now put adsenses ... and your forum would be everywhere

Re: PunBB needs your money!

From my modest donation, you can do whatever you like. I even think you should buy yourself something nice, so you're in a good mood to rewrite the search and add server-side read/unread thread tongue

Re: PunBB needs your money!

I has find a Danish website with the same princip as the MillionDollarHomepage:
www.100000.dk

The site has over 400 visitors per day, even though it startet from 8 days ago. A lot of the visitors somes from USA.
But i think it would be a better idea to buy GOOGLE adsenses smile

Re: PunBB needs your money!

i think you should go down the pub tongue

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Why not use the money to advertise in the back of computing/webmaster magazine? Surely that will be the same price as a 30 x 30 pixel ad on milliondollarhomepage?

Not even close.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Maybe going with some PPC program would be worth it.  Overture or Yahoo! Publisher maybe, still in beta - but it would put you on the accepted sites, which all are a bit higher than those accepted into AdSense.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Hey guys. Don't post much on here anymore, but still browse every so often just to see how PunBB is progressing.

Interesting to see you're using milliondollarhomepage.com - in a national paper here it says that the lad who set it up is a student at Nottingham in the Business School, however I've heard other reports that he's at Canterbury or something. Either way, he's doing a business degree as am I and its so frustrating to hear this guy is going to make a fortune. I know you aren't supposed to begrudge someone elses fortune but doesn't this story just spur you on to make a go of it in the world?

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Since i really cannot afford to make a donation, i can give you a free ad for this forum if you wish.  Just go to http://www.millionusdollarhomepage.com and see where you would like to place the ad, let me know and I will add it for you guys free of charge.

Thanks.  Do it before i change my mind. big_smile

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Henry: millionUSdollar, give me a break smile I thank you for the offer, but I've already stated what my position on all these knockoffs is. If any of the million(.*?)homepage sites are getting the money, it's milliondollarhomepage.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

That is pretty nerdy. wink  I've used terminology before, but imagine something actually reading each character out. wink

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Maybe I'm missing the point here, but why would you want to associate punBB with all those casino adds and porn sites?  Especially when it's gonna cost you a grand.  Seems like there's better ways to advertise smile

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Like I said earlier, I'm looking for more constructive ways to use the money. I'm open to suggestions.

Another one is out smile

Re: PunBB needs your money!

My suggestions:
- pay your domain name for 10 years.
- pay your host for as long as you can.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Paying for the domain name is not a bad idea. The hosting is free so that's not a problem though.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Ooh, that gives me an idea: see if those PunBB.com domain squatters will leave big_smile

Free PunBB Hosting - lots of mods, easy to customize

Re: PunBB needs your money!

Go for the milliondollarhome page.  It is almost half full, and getting the most attention.

Re: PunBB needs your money!

I'm slightly (:() more comfortable right now, so I added 10 box to the pool.

Another idea to use the money: code (or otherthings) ransom. If you need something done, and don't/can't do it yourself, use some of the money to ransom it (so others would do it, and get the money).
