Why we have ads on the site

This is an outdated page. There are no longer ads on www.rockbox.org

Ads

We feature text-link ads on the front page of www.rockbox.org. We provide the ads and get paid a lump of money every month for doing this.

Money

The amount of money these ads provide is not insignificant. Compare to DonatedMoney for what we can do with them. The ads pay a lot more than we get from regular user donations.

Fun

If we continue with this ad program and/or other similar ones, the amount of money we get will greatly help us sponsor more hardware, arrange better devcons, buy people more beer to cheer them up etc. Again, see DonatedMoney.
