how long does it take for ad banners to stop?


how long does it take for ad banners to stop after purchasing premium credits? I bought 100000 page views yesterday and my acct is still showing "Premium status of your board: Non-premium (0 premium page views remaining)" and the banners are still on.

Normally the ads stop the same day that you purchase the credits but sometimes it takes an extra day before PayPal gets the money distributed (no idea why). Another thing that sometimes affects it is when Thor is doing one of his "holidays" but in those cases he normally tells Lesigner Girl he is going to be gone and she does something when she gets in from her "day job."

Hi, Ed!

I don't have access to board premium payments, but based on our previous correspondence, I trust that you have paid for the credits, so I added them to your board and sent an email to Thor to let him know that I did this.

I saw where you said you are uncertain how long 100,000 views will last. Although there is no way to be absolutely certain, you might be able to estimate it. I want to stress the word, "might", because I don't want it to sound like a guarantee, and there are a few factors that determine how long your credits will last.

Premium users like David will not deplete any of your premium credits, as long as they are logged in to their premium Runboard account.

In your board's miscellaneous options, if you have checked the option to display ads to logged in users, then logged in users will see ads, and those views will not deplete your credits.

If you have checked the option to display ads to logged out users, then lurkers who aren't logged in to a Runboard account will see ads, and those views will not deplete your credits.

To get a rough estimate of how long 100,000 credits might last, look at the miscellaneous options in your board's control panel, then look at the board statistics in your board's control panel.

If the option to display ads to logged out users is not checked in your miscellaneous options, follow the "Not logged in" column in your stats down to the bottom. Between the last 7 days daily average, last 30 days daily average, and 90 days daily average, find the biggest number of the three, and write it down. If the option to display ads to logged out users is checked, write a "0" instead.

If the option to display ads to logged in users is not checked, follow the "Logged in, non-premium" column down to the bottom. Between the last 7 days daily average, last 30 days daily average, and 90 days daily average, find the biggest number of the three, and write it down. If the option to display ads to logged in users is checked, write a "0" instead.

Now, add together the two numbers you wrote down. Then, take 100,000 and divide it by that sum. If, if, if your board's traffic doesn't increase, and if your premium users don't drop their premium status, you might be able to expect 100,000 credits to last at least that many days.

If you have chosen to display ads to both logged in users and logged out users, then everyone will see ads unless they are logged in to a premium user account, and those views will not deplete your credits.

Displaying ads to logged out users but not to logged in users can be a good way to reward people for creating a Runboard account and logging in to them when they lurk, which could entice them to post since they are already logged in to an account. However, advertising this fact could also result in more premium credits being depleted, because some people might create Runboard accounts just to avoid seeing ads. This is yet another factor to consider.

I hope this helps!

Thanks LG, you're a great help.

Truthfully I wasn't all that concerned with how long they'll last, I figured I'd just wait and see. Traffic isn't what it once was on the BOTB so I expect it to be quite a while. I will however definitely check all the settings and make sure we're as optimized as possible without being annoying to the people viewing the board. I "used to be" a Premium member, like David but let that go a while ago and will keep my current status because otherwise I won't know quickly when they expire (without logging in to the control panel that is).

Re: Premium board


I started a new board ([sign in to see URL]) on August 16, 2017. Through the set up process I saw references to choices I could make if it was a premium board. I've searched high and low for something to tell me how to make it a premium board, and I can't find anything (I did find how to make me a premium user, but nothing for the whole board).

Please tell me where to find that option.

Thanks.

Re:


Hi Miz Robbie! Welcome to Runboard!

Go to your Control Panel. It will say You have special access to these boards:
Choose the board's name and then click on Manage.
Once you get to the boards Control Panel, scroll to the very bottom and there is a box to Purchase premium credits.


Once purchased, if you want your credits to last longer, go to Set misc board options and check the box that says: Display ads to logged out users on your board?

Re: how long does it take for ad banners to stop?


Susa, thank you for your speedy reply!

I had read those instructions elsewhere, but when I try to follow them I get through all those steps except there is no box to purchase premium credits.

I have some vague memory (and I haven't found anything to verify it) that new boards get a one-month ad-free period before the ads kick in. And, indeed, there haven't been any ads on my new board yet. Could it be the case, assuming my memory is correct, that the box doesn't show up until after the first month is up?
