Added.  i mean a bit anyway, no one even needs to read what I wrote, technically, 90% of it is irrelevant except the end part there is pretty relevant to CoinURL.

EndTheFed123, if you had just taken the money it wouldn't have ended like this Sad

try to outsource coding of such a script for 50 btc.. if you even find a developer i think the source would be crap.
coinurl had many features and dont forget about the whole userbase and the name! i dont know how many users were registered..

but lets say if all users have a balance of 100 btc then the real price is 150 btc.. then i agree. thats not cheap anymore Wink

If i were a gambling man i would bet you that the wallet had a lot more than 100BTC,

or maybe i am overestimating Coinurl, but i think my little account had ~2btc.
(and no its not the same username as my forumname so hackers stay off.)

Between my announcement of the CoinURL closure and offer from the mc_lovin to buy it elapsed about 1 day, during which I got many withdrawal requests from the publishers and I have sent them payments. The vast majority of publishers' unpaid balances remaining now are micro-Bitcoins, which I can pay from my own wallet if mc_lovin will decide to reject all obligations.

The largest part of obligations are in form of unspent clicks and impressions, but as it was stated from the CoinURL inception in ToS and many times disputed on this forum, advertisers' funds are non-refundable and can be spent solely on advertising. I don't think mc_lovin will change this policy. Advertisers just will be able to continue displaying their ads.

I have configured CoinURL on the mc_lovin's server and it is ready to run right after DNS will be rewritten.

CoinURL will be up before you know it.  Waiting on the slow registrars to do their thing with the transfer.

cur.lv links are working.

I noticed the server started to dance a little bit with the extra load, and I doubled the memory and added a 3rd CPU core, I'll increase it further if need be, but I think it should be pretty spunky as is.  Tuning PHP and MySQL will probably go a long way too. 

Sorry for the delay!

Good news is that CoinURL is working

Bad news is that the server just tanked despite my efforts to soup it up.  I dont even see what the bottleneck is.  I know it is some configuration that needs to be changed, standard LAMP setup is just crumbling under load. 

Moving BitcoinTrading to another host temporarily.

CoinURL can have the VPS and just eat it for the next day. 

If someone can help me tune the VPS to handle the load, I'm all ears!  Please!  GEEEEBUSSSS I thought I was being DDOS'd.   It's nuts.

Re: customer deposts: I can't give you guys coins that I don't have, but I will likely be paying users out of pocket for this in a manner that is affordable.  The way the site was set up before, apparently, advertisers were not allowed to withdrawal at all.  I want to change things like this to allow that sort of functionality but I am not going to be able to do that especially if you guys try to all withdrawal at once, it's just not going to be feasible, and if giantdragon still had the site, apparently, he wouldn't have paid advertiser balances out anyway.  Advertisers would use their balances for advertising, and the publishers had the ability to be paid out.  If a publisher has a balance and the amount requested for withdrawal is reasonable, I'll just pay it out of pocket, but it's not like I have a massive bitcoin balance to be paying out of.  I have a very little amount of bitcoin, and after buying coinurl the amount is laughable but if the total amount of publisher withdrawals is a few BTC a week or something then I can make that happen.  Be reasonable, be patient, and this transition will be pretty seamless. 

Wait, you're the acquiring investor? This has got to be the funniest shit I read this week.

So when the site is running, and everyone requests withdrawls at once...  Be realistic.  Site is starting up with no funds and we have to work together on this one.  If you have a balance, use it for advertising like you had originally intended.  Publishers, I think I can handle the amounts that you are likely to be receiving.  I know with CoinURL I had the banners up for the whole 6 months, I got like a half million pageviews and I only netted like 0.20 BTC.

Epic. Just...epic.

Give some time to the mc_lovin to normally setup the server and understand how things work here.

Dude, the 25% fee was on CoinURL since the beginning.  I haven't changed anything.  In fact, I'll be more likely to eliminate the fee than anything, quit your bitching.  Even see this thread -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=129632.0

So is there any reason why the server(s) handling ads needs to be the same one handling campaign management?

Ya, the 25% thing always seemed pretty ridiculous to me. Especially since most bitcoin sites seme to have a theme of really low percentages on any fees. Id expect like 1 or 2%, even 5% would be fine. not a quarter of your whole earnings.. just sayin

Nice to hear that, don't forget about memcached! It reduces the server load around 45-50%.

The 25% fee was only applied to withdrawn deposits and not publisher earnings IIRC.
