Well I’m getting sick of how ads work. I’m allowing people to advertise on my site and I’m only getting paid when they actually click a link? Hey, if your product isn’t interesting enough to get people to click on it, it’s your fault, not mine. I guess I could make the same complaint for MochiAds, but so many more people play World 2 than visit my site that it’s not nearly as big of a problem. I also know that those guys are working to get use developers the best deals that they can, so…
So, instead of using ads on the site, I’ve added a Donate button to the sidebar. I’m sure that most of the people who enjoy playing my games aren’t exactly able to donate through Paypal, but… they have parents, right? 😀
Also new: What I would consider the next step in expanding the site: a forum! Yep, now you guys get to post off topic comments, and off topic forum posts! (kidding, kidding! you know I love you guys’ ‘creative posting’!). WordPress names carry over to the forum, and yes, I will make a door for them… eventually…
Current categories are:
Brad Borne, Makes games, which will soon be filled with thought provoking questions such as, ‘when is World 3 going to be release?!’
Game Development: I can’t promise I’ll be able to answer everything, but I’m hoping this can turn into some sort of database for the most asked questions.
Your Work: A place to show off your own creative side. Drawings, animations, games, fan art, engine builds, music, whatever. If you made it and want to show it off, you can post it here.
Video Games (current) and Video Games (classic): I’m not too sure if I want this classification yet, not sure if I’ll stick with current and classic, or ‘reviews’ and ‘analysis,’ or something…
Music: I’ve always said that having a good beat in your head is extremely important while animating, so I’ll probably end up ranting about a bunch of bands that I like that you probably haven’t heard of.
Serious Business: There’s a few topics that I would like to talk about, not necessarily related to gaming, that I don’t think would work well as a blog post. I do plan on heavily moderating all threads under this category, but no, I won’t be censoring anyone’s opinion that differs from my own.
Off Topic: Because I know my forum would explode if you guys didn’t have this section 😉
I was going to write on Portal and it’s current seemingly endless influence on any and all online puzzle games… but instead I think I’ll go use my newfangled Forum thing to do that…
Whenever someone donates here, a certain someone gets some cash and it makes a little “ka-ching” sound. 😛
Wat up with the noises?

You knew that spam was coming.
YOU CAN NEVER EVADE THE SPAM! MUHAHAHAHHAHAHA
I think the notion of payment per click is ridiculous too; payment per impression makes much more sense because ads take up page space either way and they can build product, service, and brand awareness even when they are not clicked. Obviously, someone selling something on the Web wants click-throughs, but if I see a Game X advertisement and that ad prompts me to go check out that game at a local store, where I then buy it, the ad contributed to a sale whether or not I clicked on it.
Advertising impressions without payment from advertiser to space provider are free advertising, plain and simple.
you guys are BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPin crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so whats going on guys? 😀
you’re all dead now
