    Let's use Sciforums as an example. There are no ads, at the moment there are 400 people viewing and only 18 members online.

    How do you monetize that?

    I read the two posts above before logging on, so I didn't see Dave's picture. I then screen grabbed a picture to show Seattle... Only to find Dave had done the same.

    I'll have to review my experimental system.

    I turned my ad blocker off and still didn't see any ads.

    Just snapped this above your last post...These ads are getting double exposure on this thread, do I get a cut of the dosh?

    It took quite a few seconds for the ads to kick in. Otherwise, it looks blank.

    Odd. Usually ads load first.

    You don't see ads if you're a logged-in registered member.

    He knows that.

    I think he may have mentioned logging out in the thread that inspired this one.

    When I checked, it took a good ten seconds for ads to appear. Until they did, there was just white screen, so it could have been missed.
