Looks like ResetEra got their funding plan sorted - ads for everyone with a $4 per month / $40 per year 'Era Clear' subscription to remove them, though unlike GAF there'll be no bans for using ad blockers.

I was reading their announcement thread earlier and the staff kept blatantly ignoring the questions about where the money is going and who, if anyone, profits from it. So much for transparency, lol. Part of the reason why GAF crumbled was because people didn't want to see someone like Evilore massively profiting from the community.

I assume the silence means someone does intend to profit from it, but they just don't want to admit that to the userbase.

It'd be hilarious if they found out that Evilore was actually running things in the background and was quietly making a fortune from Resetera.

As soon as all that gooseberry fool kicked off and there was another site being set up, you just knew the people doing so we're in it for the money.

A guy makes enough money off a site to live on and drive a Porsche? Let's steal his site from under him and have some of that sweet sweet moolah for ourselves!

34,000 members.
If even half subscribe to the cheaper option that's $680,000/year.

I'm sure the ResetEra server costs are high compared to somewhere like GRcade but I somehow doubt they're $56,000/month :lol:

Holy gooseberry fool Gaf really is dead. Reluctantly popped over there as re$etera is currently down and the LABO thread is only 3 pages long. Ours is bigger and better :toot:

It's genuinely kind of sad to see GAF in that state. :(

Going to be interesting to see how big/intrusive the ads are before I turn on my ad-blocker for the site.

Maybe there will be a "trickle down" effect... we will all benefit from Karl and Gecko's new-found wealth?

Barely any topic on the first page has more than 1 page to it too.

Amazingly, The banner ad at the bottom of the page is pushing a dating site for Chinese women promising they'll make the first move. Just needs a shower advert now.

Open up ResetEra on my phone now that the maintenance is complete.
Almost immediately get redirected to the Play Store app to download the Coral gambling app.

Hi, I apologize for any confusion in this area. As we are incorporated as an LLC and not a nonprofit it has always been possible that we might eventually take a profit. We don't want to assume too much while we're still in the red, and we have site priorities we are committed to seeing addressed, but our existence as an LLC and a business is not a secret.


Yes we're going to make a profit but strawberry float off asking where it goes.

A lot of supposedly reputable websites are pulling this type of scam on mobile devices. Saying you've won a prize courtesy of your ISP is another one. You have to fill in a mandatory survey or refresh the page. Just real low rent stuff now.
