I had the thought that if ever I made a webapp or game that went super popular and I needed to pay for hosting and donations weren't covering it, maybe a text-only ad space would be permissible
@SuricrasiaOnline You can still sell sponsorships, but all the ad networks that don't suck, like The Deck, are dead.
I feel like you kinda need to stick to the self-host method if you do it, or else people won't know which ad comes from the community and have at least been vetted and which ad is some algorithmic nonsense that could lead every which way
@SuricrasiaOnline@cybre.space That sucks
The most I look into ad websites is to add them to my dns blacklist
@SuricrasiaOnline for once scale is necessary. there's a threshold of sky-screaming where you create like a gestalt entity of externalized horror and it's beautiful
