trying to monetise the site off the user base is a waste of time. you should be selling your space direct to display ad advertisers who have products for this target audience along with leveraging the emails you capture.
This is unique I like this idea I can do this for guild members as a reward for doing events, etc. Proud to support this site for without it I would be so lost in Azeroth right now. (:Thank you wowhead team for all the efforts y'all done over the years!
If the site was like it used to be and not so bloated, Premium might be worth purchasing.
Ah OK awesome. Sorry my post sounded negative. It wasn't to sound like I was moaning you offer this. I was just trying to sound out that you would get more from direct advertisers and its obvious your doing what you can to get more revenue. Looks like your doing what you can to get more investment. :)Good luck. Thanks for replying with the info :)
This site is a great one and always has been. Ads for revenue to keep the site going are awesome; however, that being said, having advertisements that slow the site down to such a degree that you can't DO anything is beyond ridiculous. Even though the price of becoming a premium user is so small right now, there are still those who flat out cannot afford it, and these ridiculous ads bloat the site and slow it down to the extent of making it unusable.
