    I don't think so. I *believe* the 'big board' has to be your own property with its own unique TLD.
    You can see more info about requirements at https://theadminzone.com/help/big-board/
    HTH,

    You don't have to own the Big Board, but you do need to be an administrator.

    The SandmanThe Sandman - Hmmm. Interesting... I thought there had to be actual ownership. I admin a big board with 1,300,000+ posts.
    Questions: Can the url be kept confidential? How do we prove our affiliation as Admin of a big board?

    If you are an admin on that board and make a post you could pm the sandman here and say that you will alter the signature or drop in a keyword in a post and you'll give a link to it.

    Basically i have a small website for news/politics and general culture, like gaming and this Forum. I did right some history about this on here.

    But i had a little lucky. Many users from another boards in Brazil are looking for alternatives from mainstream and the censorship. We have a very hard mainstream left culture here with all what comes with the package.

    2k members and growing.

    The main problem is the bad posters, trolls and everything that comes with a Forum. Man, how Google hate this kind of things, is impacting on my Ads revenue and we have to moderate closely some users.

    trolls and bad posters affecting ad revenue? Shouldn't be. Only if they post banned content like porn, and even so, it would only be those pages affected.

    And congrats! Really impressive growth. Luck is a byproduct of hard work! You found a niche and capitalized on it!

    a

    Yeah, Google keep's flagging most of the content on the "free discussion area" and they remove the Ads. Everyday i have to check the policy on Google Ads to see what's going on. My biggest fear is if someday Google remove my Ads from the entire site. And i use very hard rules, but i can't check everypost. And i really don't want to loose my revenue, is low, but, U$~300/month in Brazil is bigger than a minimum wage in Brazil.

    Hope i can someday contract a specialist to do a makeover on my Ads, my job is purely amateur on this points. Get the code, put in the XF and done.

    Is funny because Google tagged threads like "martial arts" with "dangerous content". Or even tag threads with videos from YouTube talking about anything. Trolls posting gore and others things make a instant flag. Some times they harm a entire good thread just for some random and sick image. I think sometimes this robot is crazy, i don't know...

    And unfortunately my users post a lot of softporn, so, for this i created a section (without big brother google eyes) just for satisfy this guys, but i only permit softcore, just nudes without the netherlands, if you know what i meean.

    My little funny niche, most of then are 16-40 years old man, with (seriously) addictions: porn, sexuality discussions, japanese cartoon, games and news/politics junk, and of couse, conspiracy theories.

    This migration is going hard on me. Maybe is time to update my older thread about this.
