    @admin @Deorro I remember your thread sometime back asking for talkers to chip in financially and help sustain this site. Well, you remember how that conversation went south. Talkers ain't gonna drop mulla in a Kickstarter-type harambee. Forget it.

    But how about embedding an ad or two daily on BOTH the desktop and mobile site, especially in the thread list? Ensure that those ads are few and succinct, almost unobtrusive. I am sure you will make something. Check out the example below, with the Uber ad subtly in the middle of the list of articles...

    This forum now has almost 4,000 members plus many more non-members, who visit on a regular basis, if not daily. KTalk has also been steadily going up the Alexa Kenya rankings, indicating increased traffic to the site and hence more clout in the eyes of advertisers.

    This forum has immense potential if handled right and we want to see it as a strong going concern going forward.

    That's my 2 cents. Over to you...

    I'm on UC Browser on my phone and I don't see any ads. I only see them on the desktop browser.

    Here is the Alexa Kenya ranking.... (a few months ago, I remember it was hapo number 485 or thereabout):

    And Bro Ocholla :D:D:D:D:D I'm surprised Mollis isn't on that list.

    Just for perspective, Xvideos is at no. 26, but a "serious" forum like Wazua (been existing for maany years) is at no. 200. Just goes to show you what's important to Kenyans online.
