    I’ve noticed a few mods and users posting affiliate links to Roku and Amazon on the forum.

    I would like to request that everyone please reconsider/stop posting their own affiliate link tag to earn a commission at this time. Especially as we try to get things off the ground. If you would like to submit an article with considerable content, I would happily allow your own affiliate link to be placed within it…but small posts made with affiliate links aren’t really fair to anyone else here nor myself as I am trying to recoup my initial investment in the forum.

    I think I’ve been pretty fair with the revenue sharing program on here so far, especially considering that we only receive 500-1000 visits a day which averages to about $2-$3 a day in earnings.

    Our hosting fees for DTVUSA and InternetTVForums is running $360 a month. Costs for advertising are running $30 a month just for internettvforums.com, and the initial investment and costs to run all of the software on this forum was around $500.

    If any of the moderators/contributors here would like to know how we can earn more here, and make more money in payouts, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Lets focus on attracting new members and making this site grow first, then we’ll monitize,

    Jay, share some of the affiliate links for the forum so we can include them in our posts, and the forum gets the referrals.
