"Keep Vanilla Free" sponsored links
When I upgraded from version 1.0.x to 1.1.2, I was caught by surprise by the links that suddenly appeared in the side panel. I thought maybe I was hacked since one of the links was for an online casino. I did a lot of searching in the scripts before finding the option on the admin control panel. Here's the deal. I like to have control over what ads appear anywhere on my website, but I also understand Mark's desire to be compensated for his hard work. I have unchecked the option for allowing the text ads, but I am willing to do one of the following: 1. Send a small annual donation to Mark directly through PayPal. 2. Put up a Google targeted ad with Mark's client number (if this is allowed by Google). 3. Put up my own Google targeted ads and donate whatever income I earn from that channel. 4. Put up a PayPal donation box directed to Mark's account and let anybody who posts on my forum decide whether or not to donate. Which is the preferred option? Are those ads that Mark has incorporated pay-per-click or pay-per-impression?
