People like Admin are why I am pulled to sites like OCN. When its run by someone who actually cares tremendously about what they are doing, and is a true enthusiast of the community themselves, it just feels that much better. I don't get bombarded with ads, or get my browser overtaken by pop over AND pop under ads. OCN respects their users and does things tastefully.
I like this, so I always allow ads. I like that OCN wants quality, but I'm sure if you had a bargain area of China items with OCN stamped on it people would love to give support in that way as well. Like say, an OCN mouse pad like that 0.99 mouse pad deal in the deals section now. Partner up for cheap pads and sell them for $5 - $6 and I'm sure people would buy it just to support. I can't afford things like a OCN Ducky but I got an OCN hat and its awesome. Pretty much put the rest of my hats in the closet for a year Thats a big deal for "hat guys"
But again, when I have a few dollars to waste here and there, you could offer "bargain" items as well
Just a thought.
Though Temptation might bite me hard in June/July when I move and get to build a new rig from the ground up, rather than the constant, incremental upgrades I've been doing. Won't feel bad about spending more than I planned on a mech KB but considering its like a donation to OCN as well as a KB purchase, I think I can justify it
Also just curious, not asking for numbers, but wondering which item brings OCN its most $$
