    Can I get paid for this?

    I was just curious, is there anyway I can get paid for the time I troll on this website?

    If I had a nickel for every minute I was on here.....well I'd have a lot of nickels.

    Yes, but some people spend them faster than they make them.

    Re: Can I get paid for this?

    OK, I'm really disappointed in the CF'ers. It's been 20 minutes and out of 4 responses, not one reliable way to make any money off of spending time on here.

    If I posted a request on how to make a AIR 2 "Genie" Nuclear Rocket, I'm sure I would get a response within in 5 minutes.

    Remember back in the good 'ole DOT COM days, when there was a program you could run that would pay you to surf the internet...

    Wasn't it like advertising around the outside or something... And as long as the mouse was moving you would get paid?

    Re: Can I get paid for this?

    I'm forwarding a forwarded message...read on, it it works you may get $$ from Microsoft. Certainly Bill has enough to share-maybe today we'll be blessed financially! I am forwarding this because the person who sent it to me is a good friend and does not send me junk. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet company and in an effort make sure that Internet explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test. When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $5.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $3.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $1.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check. I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my e-mail and within days, I received a check for $800.00.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Something like that...

    I supposed if Jeremy reduced the size of the thread "window" to about 1/100th of the screen size and crammed the border with a ton of banner ads (like that million dollar website that kid did about a year ago) and split the revenues with all users based on % of your day spent on CF...then yes, we could all get paid for it.

    Maybe Jeremy could have Pepsi commercial videos run all the time in a side box so we had to watch the commercials. Maybe we could have one of those ESPN survey boxes that land in the middle of the page. Better yet, maybe Harrahs would want to help sponsor this site.

    Ad's are stupid. Enough said.

    Any other ideas on how "my time" not other peoples time, or site traffic or anything like that can make some money for "me". I'm talking about how "my time" on this site can earn "me" some money. I promise I'll share the proceeds with whomever comes up with the good idea.

    Take everyone's made up stories and write a screen play. We've all told enough lies within these forums to make a 90 minute feature.

    Can I just cut and paste or would that be considered plagiarism?

    Just cite the source and I think we're good...or have Jeremy sign off so you can use anything that is a property of CF.
