Yes, who pays for the bandwidth?

A mysterious consortium of eastern Europeans.
Well, my speculation. Minimal to no advertising. Most likely University activity.
Probably several bodies, with funding.
It's just like I said.
And the advertising is given to guests (of which there are plenty) and people under 20 posts.
It apparently pays the bills.
Why is it relevant?
dave was the old owner, he sold it.
Wrong. It's crimnal aliens who sneak in unobserved when good, upright, god-fearing Americanos del Norte are posting on here.
<gasp> The Illuminati???
I hope you whispered that word
Internet advertisement is a funny thing considering if you don't do direct advertising for a company and use a third party that deals with enlisting advertisements, you'll find a site will earn far less.
Some companies require that links aren't just viewed or clicked, but products/services are purchased and then they will limit when you can withdraw any amounts by a set amount. (They'll also limit sites that get at least 100,000 individual hits, that all those hits must occur on the main page alone etc.)
In general, Advertising at Sciforums would not cover it's costs alone although you'd have to ask of Pseudo and Zox about how much they personally spend.
(Btw, any problems with the site, it's operation or feedback shoud be directed at Plazma since he is the Administrator in Charge and the spokes person for Pseudo/Zox when they aren't here to speak for themselves)
To be honest, I was under the impression Sciforums was now a company asset somewhere in the world, and being used as a guinea pig for software solutions.
in that case....
pseudo, zox and plazma!
how do you respond to those heinous charges?

my mental image of plazma is a gothic type fuck, all gaunt and shit, roaming the black forest in a trenchcoat and boots and whatnot

I think the Vatican owns this place now.
I don't see the relevancy of this, when it's been responded ages ago. Search it please. It's in the forum somewhere.
You forgot barbwire, pliers and syringes...
... and Luger P08 after confession.
Just because you don't see it, some people could be curious. Also the relevancy would be if the site is run as a business, a research project, a platform for the ages or just a hobby.
I got it from Alexa.com not from here, by the way. (I censored the address and phonenumber)
Odd. I've never thought of this place as a possession of anyone. More like, someone's created and maintained public place, a message board for science. Now it's starting to feel like all the info posted on the boards becomes the property of the one who owns the boards...
