Are you concluding that because Theymos, Maged, and Johnthedong are all included in the transaction? Paraipan's not a mod and he's included too. The odd part is one of pirates old addresses is in there.

I think it is just moving forum money around, if I had a guess. But theymos should be open and tell us what this transaction is. Good catch thou! I would haven't notice.

They deserve to get paid for running this craziness.

I'm a mod myself on another forum and do not envy the amount of time they must spend on a daily basis keeping this place running.

BTC well earned, IMO. Esp. whoever is running the server. Must get attacked daily.

I don't have a problem of them getting paid, but not at the expense of them saying they do it for free.

Very true.

There should be total transparency in regards to donations.

I'm surprised that Mr Gage, with his monumental post tally, is not already fully aware of all the ins and outs of this forum...

Wait, what! There's ins AND outs?

Is there a thread already addressing this issue?

Phone posting, so no quotes, but I'll try to answer the questions so far.

Yes, we get a percentage of ad revenue based on various factors now, which is fair since we spend a lot of time and energy keeping this forum usable and readable. Before only thing we got for our trouble was grief, which leads to burnout pretty quickly.

Donations are not used for this, transparency isn't necessary.

This is relatively new, when I said we do it for free, at the time we were, and had no idea this was coming.

Paraipan is a mod, local mod in Spanish board I think? All the local mods are included as well.

And no, there's no other threads about it, this is the first time I've seen it asked. Good job gage  Wink.

So who's address is this: 14eg3jCsqXNciW5TPnKHRLQQtEDWdcHNj5  They're worth a lot of coin.

John K. got $1,149. How do you sign up to be a mod!

Ad revenue to mods, but not donations?

Awesome. And well deserved.

Bruno, the mod payments started around April if I'm not wrong.

Ad revenue to mods, but not donations?

Awesome. And well deserved.

Yes, and about 20-30% is paid out from ad revenues. Of course, the donations aren't touched here.

So who's address is this: 14eg3jCsqXNciW5TPnKHRLQQtEDWdcHNj5  They're worth a lot of coin.

John K. got $1,149. How do you sign up to be a mod!

That address should be a cold storage belonging to the forum - it's not a mod payment.
Theymos used a secret algorithm to determine the amounts being paid. I guess I'm quite active here - heck, even theymos got only 7~BTC.  Wink

Yeah not all is being paid out, only up to a certain percentage. Rest goes to the forum for whatever.

Well, I guess you're worth it. Anyone that calls himself a dong is ok in my book anyway. lol
