There already is a system in place on the submit form that allows you to set a % per author and musician. These percentages apply to the rev share system!

It depends on if the uploader of the submission gives you a cut.

My thing dosn't say that I have any sources - not even my user page. I've filled in the payment thing, is there anything else I have to do?

Sorry, I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious, I just can't think what it is...

Do any of your current flash have the flash API installed? From what I gather, that's the only way to have retroactive stats. Otherwise, it starts counting up from 0 from the moment you activate. You just have to wait a few days until one of your pages gets 1000 impressions and/or makes some dolla dolla bills (or, uh, centy, centy... coins?)

I tried, ingredients were from bottom to top:

White Bread for whiteness
Ham for pinkness
BBQ Sauce for line detail
Bread Corner for that raised brow effect

Took way longer than i expected it to, i estimated at about 5 minutes, took me about 20.... Ham is a fiddely material.

I have questions, and yes I have read this ENTIRE thread.

1.) What does eCMP mean?
2.) How come some eCMP's are a lot higher than others?
3.) What do I have to do to get my money from my page or is it an automatic thing where anyone who clicks on any ads on my page automatically give me fractions of a penny or whatever.

I really don't understand anything about this.

Great idea, this is a good incentive for people to upload quality flash to newgrounds, or post porn in your blog, or whatever.

1) eCPM is the effective CPM, or how much you are making per 1000 impressions. The "e" is there because it isn't a fixed number, it's based on the performance of the ads.

2) eCPMs vary based on how well your ads perform. People with high quality content tend to generate a better eCPM. There are some people on NG who get lots of traffic, but it isn't "high quality" traffic so it generates low earnings.

3) When you reach the $50 minimum payout threshold, you will get a check or Paypal payment with your earnings.

What determines "High quality" traffic?

I mean, if you have a ton of impressions what determines the difference between high and low quality?


3) When you reach the $50 minimum payout threshold, you will get a check or Paypal payment with your earnings.

I didn't mean how i'd receive the money in person, I meant more of if I had to upload an ad or something somewhere or all I had to do i sign up.

Also more questions.

4.) What is keeping a user from going on a friends, a public, etc. computer and just spam clicking the ads on his/her page?
5.) I understand how this will work for flash, audio and pages as well as probably in the Lit. + Art portals later, but will anything of the sort ever be added to the forums themselves?
6.) Will there ever be an option to instead of receive a monthly pay check, exchange the 50 bucks for - let's say - a ton of t-shirts and stickers?

Also i'd like to know, who was the gentleman who came up with the concept for this idea? :3

It might be based on the diversity of ISPs or locations or how many click and sign up vs click vs just see.

Nothing. But there are systems in place that prevent spam-clicking from registering. Also, if you're caught doing that you can have your access denied. Also, even if you were somehow successful you're only making like... a dollar for all the effort anyway.

*le shrug*

If you really had read through the whole thread you'd know the answer, oh hohoho.

ALSO HOLY CRAP I MADE A NICKEL.

Haahaha that's amazing. Apparently I have 1300 ad impressions from my userpage... really? 1300 unique views in under a day? If that's true you people need to comment more on my blogs, hah... but I have a feeling those numbers are somewhat wonky. I refuse to believe my userpage gets THAT many hits, but I guess over time I'll find out.

Hmmm, after mucking around a bit, I found that my "all-time" impressions are more like 3200. This thing must have been logging me well before yesterday; it's the only explanation.

Well, if you pump out tons of quality submissions then you can expect the quality to change. But yes, there's a huge random element.

OHHHHH NOW YOU "SKIMMED."

I'm just fucking with you. They said that they would consider transferring your earnings to store credit, especially for those who aren't coming close to the $50 mark and don't anticipate getting there any time soon.

Look at all your stats.

Look at your aura.

It really shouldn't be that big of a shock.

Ugh, something tells me i'll never be able to create any flash games/movies that would be even remotely quality.
