    Yes, I had a look around some of the old threads and found one that happened a couple of years before I joined, so I hadn't known about it.

    It's worth remembering that while a lot of the young people from the thread of 13 years ago are now adult and presumably no longer saving for school and do have the means to make online purchases, there's a new generation of members who are in the same position as the other ones before them.

    I actually keep my adblocker off here ;)
    Imo the ads are not annoying. They are placed in reasonable spots, they have no sound & no popups.
    All 3 of those points are important for me, and if it stays classy like that i have no reason for turning adblocker back on.

    Question: How many new page loads would I have to load per month to make the site $15/year?

    I want to support the site, but was wondering which was the best way for me?

    Literally thousands. A single individual would take several years to make a site $15 through ad revenue unless they clicked the ads (and Google has algorithms that help them differentiate between legitimate clicks and just spam clicks).

    Thanks, so the site is better off if I donate the $15/year.

    Thunderfall,

    Thank you for continuing to run this site. I have been playing the series for two decades (with my favorite by far and away being the fourth installment).

    The knowledge and value that I have been able to gather from this excellent community has been enormous, and without it, I wouldn't have enjoyed hundreds of hours of Civ.

    Expect to see some support in the near future.
