would it be a good idea to have it where you haft to be a member for 1-2 years, and make it so views give you 2-5 cents per view, and have more moderators to limit it, and then he will have 2x traffic. and to get the money for the post you can add small ads to the main screen. I think this is a good way to get this site going again

I'm curious to know what you mean by bring the age down though.

Serb in me sees so many possible exploits of this, that I'm not even gonna start on that. Also, I already told you that that amount of money is impossible. It would also kill spirit of site and bring in people wanting money, as well as exploiters

What's gonna stop me from bribing people to view my journal? Or view it myself over and over. Or create fake accounts to get views. Now you can't even view something for fun. I personally wouldn't do those things ( :wink: ) plenty of non-anters would come to the forum seeking money. Something I have learned through my life: most people will do anything for money. Then there would be title "click-bait". "My ant colony became self-aware and has enslaved my neighborhood! Help!" All that kind of AntsCanada crap.

Terrible idea, it would destroy this forum as we know it.
