See topic for question
The administrators pay for it, and so do the sponsors.
Who exactly sponsors this site may i ask?
The recommended game retail sites, shown on the home page, I would imagine.
indeed, but the Admins get the most props for keeping GBATemp up.
So, technically the admin makes no profit whatsoever off this site?
aside from the free gear they get to review, i doubt they get much, if any, compensation, but Shaun of Costello would be the ones to answer that question for sure.
I remember a while back Costello and Shaun were having problems financially with the site and it was about to get shut down.
I said, "guys listen...I will sell my body for money and get the cash you need."
They were both like, "No! No, we can't let you do that!!!"
But I knew it had to be done and so I told them I would see them within 24 hours with the money they needed.
The next day I stroll up ... my hair a mess, I'm tired and sore. "1,028 dollars and 25 cents" I say as I put the money on the table.
"25 cents?" Costello says, "what cheap mother fucker gave you 25 cents?"
Very confused I say "Um...all of them"
And thats the story of how GBAtemp got funded.
(Warning the above joke only works if you understand USA's currency)
ROFL, ahh this community is so greeat.
The last person who asked that question got banned by Costello....from his yacht.
haha what is funny to me about that statement is I know of a situation, on another site, where that happened ... seriously.
Where the owners/sysops of the site were making a fortune of subscriptions & advertising, and would ban anyone who asked too many money questions ... and the head owner/sysop did live on a yacht in the Mediterranean.
We have paid everything with our own money since day one, but since late 2006 affiliates have been providing a little more money than we need for the server, so we're getting a tiny little extra.
However, all the people who donated (lent money, or voluntarily paid the server bills) haven't been paid back yet so the extra money we get goes to them.
We also spent a LOT of money for the past tournaments (I only finished paying that Wii bundle from the 2007 tournament a couple of months ago).
We're a large community, but our purpose is not to make money (unlike Maxconsole, I would imagine), has never been and will never be. We are independent and hope to remain for as long as possible.
Are there ads on this site?
The only ads on this site are the recommended affiliates boxes which you can see on the portal. Apart from that, no.
Sites that aren't in the pay of various companies tend to be the most reliable and best places to find out unbiased information.
that is very true. well tahnks for your reply guys
which site are we talkin about?
duh, Google of course
