How about a contribute button like charities? then guys can donate more if they wish, if they donate more then that would be supporting the site.

personally i wouldn't do it as i generally don't pay for things i can play for free

Craig the £10 you pay are for the cost of adverts only and not for profit you seem to think it is. It is the same revenue and will continue to say so unless admin correct me. The £10 is to cover the loss of no adverts which is the root cause of a profit.

Ask Youtubers if you don't believe me, the only way nick would lose money is if people blocked the ads without paying, for every member who does that, nick loses money from advert revenue and display them.

Thats why Youtubers ask subscribers NOT to block adverts as they depend on that money to make remixes or other things and nick would be dependant on that money too.

Sorry mate but for me £10 is for 5 or 6 cues, not worth it, same revenue if you pay or not, makes no difference


they have confirmed this many time James

every time you click an advert it generates and income
maybe a 1p a click

5 or 6 cues makes no difference, well don't demand change, don't demand Nick does this or that

this site has overheads, like anything else
who pays James ???????????

Google pays anyone using Adsense, more guys what visit the page the more money you generate. Thats what Youtube told me. Usually need over 1,000 subscribers though, not sure how it works with funky

If i really wanted to i could use Adsense on Snooker League website and make money from players visiting the site.

So Premium or Adsense pays for us to play

i support it in my own way by a community group and other things, don't need to pay to support the site. at least i'm trying to do something.

Yes understood but far as i know, if you use Google Adsense then Google pays you so much money for having their adverts on your site so if its true, Google does pay nick some money.

Nick's still profiting from this site even now so not sure he will pull the plug, if he does then its been a good ride and made lots of new virtual friends who are real people and then i would move onto League of Angels almost full time a game which people pay tons more money and they don't moan because i don't pay a dime.

Say every member left did buy a premium account what exactly do you think would change? The answer is absolutely nothing. I'm not sure if you've noticed but Nick has no interest whatsoever in this site anymore.

If you can't come to terms with the fact that people either can't afford to buy a premium account or they see it as a complete waste of a tenner then why not start contributing your wages and buy everyone a premium account, seeing as you are the only person that preaches about it....

Why on Earth did you write that in the form of a poem?? Very bizarre!!

The decline of the site has absolutely nothing to do with how many premium members there are. Back at it's peak - no-one had premium accounts!

Just to answer this first.. Yes, as far as I am aware, google adsense does pay Nick for every time a page is used (very very small fee) - not per click on an advert, otherwise Nick would never get a single pence.

1am = 9 Ball Billiards
2am = 8 Ball Billiards Speed
2:30am = 9 Ball Arcade
3am = 8 Ball UK
4am = Straight Speed
=======================
5am = 8 Ball Billiards
6am = Random Speed
6:30am = 8 Ball Arcade
7am = 9 Ball Billiards Marathon
8am = 8 Ball UK Speed
=======================
9am = Straight
10am = 8 Ball Billiards Marathon
11am = 8 Ball UK
12pm = 9 Ball Billiards Speed
12:30pm = 8 Ball Arcade Speed
=======================
1pm = 8 Ball Billiards Speed
2pm = 9 Ball Billiards
3pm = Random
4pm = 8 Ball UK Speed
4:30pm = 9 Ball Reverse Speed
=======================
5pm = 8 Ball Billiards
6pm = 9 Ball Billiards
7pm = 8 Ball UK Marathon
7:30pm = 9 Ball Arcade Speed
8pm = Straight
=======================
9pm = 8 Ball Billiards Marathon
10pm = 8 Ball UK
10:30pm = 8 Ball Arcade Speed
11pm = 9 Ball Billiards Marathon
12am = Random

Okay, so this is my rough idea of what the tournament schedule should look like. Scrap Micros and keep these only.

The schedule is dedicated to having Speed tournaments before periods of decline (such as the 8am tournament) and also allowing for Marathon tournaments in hot-spot periods (7pm, 9pm, 11pm and 7am).

Schedule also includes random and straight with also arcade choices mixed in there every four or five hours at a half past time slot, which is based on offering choice after speed tournaments may have already finished.

It won't be, just remember that every discussion thread is left until you all start arguing and petty fights! So far some healthy debates which will be left if we see anymore comments removed from staff it might be capped. As for now please continue

On the note of "if Nick pulls the plug it's gone" bit. He'll be more reluctant to pull the plug if things like ads make him more money... simples

pennies chezz pennies

get real, a click on an advert doesn't give him thousands

and even if it did, its his site he built it
and deserves to be rewarded

I'm sure if he made enough money
he would look to make it bigger and better

look at any business Cash is King

nothing is for free in life

Aaah, I have an idea though! how about we all make successful youtube channels, get loads of subscribers, and then, when they are hanging off our every video, we bang in a funky snooker/pool one, they all won't join, but some might
