The 18+ Section is now live and it’s called the Restricted Section!
Funny story: I was waiting for ages for a way to just restrict ads on that part of the forum (there wasn’t a way with the Google Adsense plugin). In the end, I gave up and made a Patreon.
You see, you can restrict ads for a group of people! But that would mean that anyone who requested access to the Restricted Section wouldn’t be getting ads all around the rest of the forum. And running this place isn’t cheap!
So I came up with the idea of starting up a Patreon. That way, I could charge people a small fee ($3 a month – check out the Patreon to pledge) and they’d get an ad-free experience everywhere and access to the Restricted Section! That way I can still keep the forums going with revenue, have a Restricted Section up and comply to the Adsense Guidelines.
As soon as I made the Patreon, the Adsense plugin owner added a way to restrict ads on specific sections of the forum
But I’m keeping things the way they are now. That way, I have a little more verification that the person is an adult and we can have a more steady income. Adsense isn’t exactly the most consistent thing in the world!
So if you want access to the Restricted Section, please feel free to join the Patreon!
The $3 Restricted Section Tier is the one you’ll want. Restricted Section is also included with the $6 Belly of the Whale tier and above!
